KettleHouse Brewing Co. | MPS Pool Ale
KettleHouse Brewing Co. is teaming up with legendary Seattle-based rock band, Pearl Jam, to launch MPS Pool Ale, a limited-edition Pale Ale brewed with Lemondrop Hops (5% ABV). The collaboration is a tribute to the 2018 Pearl Jam concert in Missoula, MT at Washington-Grizzly Stadium, which streamed for the first time in June 2021. A portion of the proceeds from MPS Pool Ale sales will be donated to Montana Pool Service (MPS), a non-profit founded by Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, who was born and raised in Montana. MPS organizes and funds world-class skateparks in rural and isolated communities for young people.
This beer is true to its name and is an excellent beer to enjoy by the pool, on trails or just to help keep you cool during the warm summer months. Exclusively using Lemondrop hops imparts a unique flavor that gives off summer vibes all on its own.
“Super excited to collab with KettleHouse on the Montana Pool Ale for the Pearl Jam streaming event,” said Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, “KettleHouse has always been about music and community here in Missoula. All contributions go to the new skatepark being built in Superior, MT this Fall. Grab a 4-pack now!”
The MPS Pool Ale was first released at the two KettleHouse taprooms in Bonner and Missoula on Tuesday, June 8, 2021. It’s now available throughout Montana, eastern Washington and northern Idaho on draft and in 16oz 4-packs.
“We’re honored to partner with a world-renowned rock band like Pearl Jam,” said Zach Nelson, KettleHouse head brewer. “The MPS Pool Ale is light, easy-drinking and packed with citric notes of tangerine and lemon zest. It was made for enjoying with live music and when drinkers stream the 2018 Pearl Jam Missoula show, we want them to feel like they are right there, beer in hand.”
The 2018 Pearl Jam Missoula show was available for online streaming from June 18-21, 2021 on Nugsnet. An in-person streaming event featuring the MPS Pool Ale cans, Stream In The Park, took. place at Ogren Park at Allegiance Field in Missoula on June 18, 2021.
