-- Lucky Envelope Brewing is celebrating its Anniversary on Saturday, April 27th
with new beer releases, red envelope giveaways, & some new branded merchandise.
"This year's Anniversary celebration has cultural significance,"
says co-founder Raymond Kwan. "The number four in Chinese tradition is unlucky because the Chinese word for the number sounds similar to the word death
. Like some Western practices of excluding the 13th
floor, you may find the 4th
floor missing from some buildings in Asia."
Lucky Envelope is releasing an Anniversary Hazy IPA brewed with Medusa, Mosaic, & Comet hops. In addition, they are releasing small batches of past customer favorites such as their Tea Smoked Helles Lager, Strawberry Milkshake IPA, & Cuke Nukem Cucumber Sour. Rounding out this year's anniversary lineup are a Blackberry Sour and Strawberry & Rhubarb Golden Strong Ale.
"We decided to re-release our Cuke Nukem Cucumber Sour which we brewed with friend and homebrewer Blake Doepker as last year's Pro-Am entry into the Washington Beer Awards, which won a silver medal," says co-founder and Brewmaster Barry Chan. "As a brewer with homebrewing roots, I wanted to recognize the homebrewing community for being so amazing and supportive of Lucky Envelope."
