Maritime Pacific Releases Decompression for Seattle Beer Week

April 29th, 2011 – Maritime Pacific Brewing Company is releasing its newest Spring Seasonal as the Commemorative Beer for the 2011 Seattle Beer Week

Seattle, WA – Maritime Pacific is releasing its latest creation, Decompression, as its newest spring seasonal. The American Strong Ale will be available in 22 oz. bottles at select stores around Washington state beginning on May 2; and available in draught on May 19 at select pubs, taverns, and alehouses throughout Seattle and Tacoma. Decompression has also been tapped as the Commemorative Beer for the 2011 Seattle Beer Week.

Decompression, a classic American Strong Ale, has an enticing medium amber color with notes of caramel and toasted bread provided by carefully chosen American and French malts.  It is hopped exclusively with Falconer’s Flight hops, a proprietary blend of hops created for the Falconer Foundation, giving it a fruity, northwest hop flavor profile. At 80 IBU and nearly 8% ABV, it packs a wallop!

The beer has become a beast. Initially, Decompression was created in memory of Glen Hay Falconer with some of the proceeds going to the Falconer Foundation, a non-profit organization the helps brewers and would-be brewers get more education in their craft.  To learn more about the Foundation and Glen visit their website at  Decompression has since been tabbed to be the Commemorative Beer for the 2011 Seattle Beer Week from May 19th through May 29th.  The event will kick off on May 19th at a special ceremony in the Maritime Pacific brewery where the first cask will be tapped at 6 pm.  To read more about this and other events brewing during Seattle Beer Week, visit their website at

Come See Us At The Cask Festival!!!

Come see us this Saturday at the Washington Beer Commission's annual CASK FEST.  We will be pouring the following beers:

1) Jolly-Gator
This is our take on an English Old Ale. We blended a well-aged cask of our Jolly Roger with a cask of our Navigator Dark Weizen Bock. The result is subtle hints of the Bavarian Hefeweizen yeast with notes of chocolate and dried fruits finishing with a pleasing bitterness.

2) Tropicale
Not only did we dry-hop this cask Imperial IPA, we also infused it with the zest of orange, tangelo, and grapefruit resulting in a refreshing citrus character. All you need now is a hammock on the beach!
