For every beer there is a time, for every season a Fort George collaboration. And this spring, Fort George Brewery and Suicide Squeeze Records have banded together to bring you Suicide Squeeze IPA – a 16-oz venture blending the Northwest’s long love affair with music, art, and craft beer.
Out of the 90’s Pacific Northwest music scene, Suicide Squeeze Records founder David Dickenson forged his own path with artists like Modest Mouse, Elliott Smith, and Pedro the Lion. Starting with a 7″ vinyl from local indie duo 764-Hero, the label has grown to include a diverse range of regional rock bands and international artists. Still, their mission has remained true to those early Northwest musical pioneers – to make something for the pure joy of it.
“We don’t make beer for style-guidelines, we just make beer that tastes great,” has always been the motto of Jack Harris. As Fort George Brew Master and co-owner. Celebrating its 7th anniversary, Fort George continues to think outside the box with unique collaborations, can designs, and beers. But of course, the goal is the same – to make something for the pure enjoyment of it.
