Pray for POW Beer
It doesn’t take much arm twisting to get most skiers to crack open a beer apres ski tour. Nonetheless, 10 Barrel Brewing, based in Bend, Oregon, is giving skiers one more reason to reach for a frosty malted beverage after a day of skiing. They’ve launched their aptly named Pray for POW seasonal beer and are donating 1% of sales to Protect Our Winters (POW).
Founded in 2007 by professional snowboarder Jeremy Jones, POW is a community of athletes, scientists, creatives and business leaders advancing non-partisan policies that protect our world today and for future generations. Call it environmental awareness, lobbying, or just plain old environmental advocacy, regardless POW is pushing forward with policy support and commnity action aimed at preserving the world and snowy climates that we as skiers love. And now you can send support their way just by drinking beer. Brilliant, eh?
How’s It Taste?
So what about the beer you ask? Well, it’s a stout style ale made for winter consumption. I’m no cicerone — that’s a fancy word for beer nerd — so, I’ll just share what 10 Barrel has to say about the taste characteristics of Pray for POW: “This is not your ordinary American Stout. In fact, this recipe has taken home 4 golds, 3 silvers, and 4 bronze medals throughout the years. This storm-inspired recipe hits you with dark chocolate, coffee, citrus, and berry notes to make some deep turns on your palate – the perfect big warmer after a day waist deep in pow.” In other words, it tastes great . . .
