G-Two Imperial Red Ale–a collaboration between Good Life Brewing and Terminal Gravity–has a release party at Bailey’s Taproom tonight Monday, February 16th, from 5-8pm. Noticing a similarity in branding and motivation, but not necessarily in beer style, Terminal Gravity went in to GoodLife Brewing to talk about teaming up for a collaborative beer that not only meshed styles, but also brands. “We loved what GoodLife was doing in the market. They are making really awesome beer that appeals to a wide range of people. Their Sweet As Pacific Ale is by far one of the most appreciated beers in Oregon, and I know they feel the same about our TG IPA. They embrace their home (Bend) and make that the center of that they do. That’s very similar to TG’s essence and brand,” says Kevin Harlander, Terminal Gravity’s brewing marketing manager.
It should come as no surprise that there were some deeper connections between each brewery. Ty is originally from Joseph, OR just up the road from Terminal Gravity’s humble home in Enterprise. Patio, GoodLife’s lead brewer, worked with TG’s head brewer, Frank Helderman, in the early days of Seattle’s beer market.
