SEATTLE, WA  May 4, 2017 – Reuben’s Brews and Rainier Brewing Company introduce r&R Pils, a collaboration beer that hits shelves in Washington and Oregon this week. Sure to delight the taste buds of beer fanatics across the Pacific Northwest, the hoppy pilsner blends the award-winning lager expertise of Rainier Brewing Company with Reuben’s Brews’ highly lauded hop-forward styles. As part of Seattle Beer Week, there will be a launch party at Reuben’s Brews at6pm on May 10th, featuring live music from local favorite Deep Sea Diver.

r&R Pils will be available on draught and in 22-ounce bottles throughout Washington and Oregon while supplies last. This special collaboration brew is 6% ABV with 40 IBUs. Malts used include U.S. Pilsner, German Pilsner and Rye, and hops include Hallertau Tradition, Cashmere, Galaxy, and Azacca.

“r&R Pils is the first collaboration  beer for Rainier in its 139 year history,” said Michael Scott, Rainier Brand Manager. “Our partnership with one of Seattle’s most well-respected breweries, Reuben’s Brews, reaffirms our ongoing commitment to brewing beer here in Washington state.”

The idea for the collaboration beer was originally formed over a pint, said Adam Robbings, head brewer and co-founder of Reuben’s Brews. “Michael is a regular in our taproom, so when he asked us to partner on a special project for Seattle Beer Week, we didn’t hesitate. This collaboration stays true to the core beliefs of both of our breweries, and is a nice meld between our cultures and styles. For us, it’s humbling to be asked by an iconic brewe

ry to do something like this.”

r&R Pils is just one of a number of exciting collaborations for Reuben's Brews coming in 2017. Visitwww.reubensbrews.com to find out more.  Rainier also has plans to release more special brews in the coming months. For more details, please visit www.rainierbeer.com.
