Seattle-Nantes Colla-beer-ation


Beer, the most ancient of beverages, is at the heart of our latest endeavor to acknowledge four decades of jumelage between our cities.

SNSCA members tapped (pun intended) brewers Chris Engdahl (Lantern Brewing in Seattle) and Stéphane Blanc (Bubar in Nantes), and they have hopped to it!  Linked by Zoom, these creative entrepreneurs (all the while doing their best to keep their respective businesses alive given the unprecedented challenges of 2020) have identified both a beer style and distinctive ingredients emblematic of our regions.  The cranberries of Washington and the grey sea salt of Guérande will be deftly incorporated into a gose, a light, refreshing German beer style, once obscure but now enjoying popularity in beer circles worldwide.  

Brewed and bottled in each city from a common recipe, our beer will be available in June 2021.
