Belt’s Beer Garden: Grind It Out

Varietal Beer Company is located in south central Washington, in a city called Sunnyside, right in the lower part of the Yakima Valley and about three hours away from both Seattle and Portland, Oregon. They were created in 2016 but it wasn’t until 2018 that their brewery actually opened.

Despite being around for so long, I have yet to try one of their brews…until now. Today I have a special beer, a collaboration they did back during the hop harvest - Hop Grind.

Hop Grind is their yearly wet-hop released beer. For the 2023 version, they decided to make a hazy IPA and collaborate with Seattle’s Future Primitive Brewing and Cervecería Transpeninsular from Ensenada, Mexico in Baja California (about 90 minutes south of Tijuana).
