Ghostfish Brewing Partners with Orca Protection & Rescue to Release Limited Killer Ale IPA

Seattle, WA – Ghostfish Brewing is set to launch Killer Ale IPA on March 9, 2019, a bold and distinctly Northwest influenced India Pale Ale brewed to benefit Washington-based Orca Protection & Rescue.

Founded in 2018 by Captain Hobbes Buchanan, Orca Protection & Rescue (OPR) is dedicated to the protection and rescue of all marine wildlife in the Salish Sea, by reducing private and commercial vessel harassment, assisting with strandings and entanglements, and removing ghost fishing gear, marine debris and plastics.

“I met Captain Hobbes while I was a passenger on his whale watch tour boat last summer,” stated Ghostfish Co-Owner Brian Thiel. “What I learned about the Southern Resident Killer Whales (SRKW) that day from Captain Hobbes left me pondering what I could do to help improve their survival.”

After learning that Brian was an owner of Seattle-based Ghostfish Brewing, Captain Hobbes contacted Mr. Thiel a few days after their initial acquaintance. He shared more about OPR and what the organization was doing to help save the whales and wildlife in the Salish Sea.

“Brian seemed like he really cared about the whales so I decided to approach him with this partnership idea. Who doesn’t love whales and ales….it just seemed like a match made in heaven….and a great way to raise funds to help save these magnificent animals. Orca whales are looking like the canaries in the coal mine. If we don’t act now to save them, we humans are the next to go,” stated Captain Hobbes.

Representatives of the OPR will be speaking on various topics pertinent to their organization’s mission as they relate to the SRKW population of the Salish Sea. The main topics they will be addressing include food, harassment, noise, and marine debris and plastics.

Killer Ale IPA will be available in limited 16oz can 4-packs and on draft at the Ghostfish Brewery Taproom and at select retail locations throughout Washington. 10% proceeds from the sale of Killer Ale IPA benefit the OPR.

“With the Killer Ale IPA project, we’re hoping to inspire many others to make small positive steps to help our environment.”, stated Mr. Thiel. “The Killer Ale IPA cans will be held together in a 4-pack carrier made of eco and animal friendly paper-based beverage board material from Fishbone Packaging. A small, yet important step for Ghostfish Brewing to be more environmentally responsible.”
