Hood River, Or - Collin Godkin, Full Sail’s Packaging Manager, is the proud brewer of the newest Brewer’s Share beer from Full Sail Brewing. The Brewer’s Share small batch program provides an opportunity for Full Sail employees to show off their brewing skills and creativity. Collin’s beer, named “Collin’s Dark Secret”, is an American dark brown ale with a delicious blend of northwest hops brewed with Northwest and European malts. Just the right amount of dark malt gives this brew a subtle cocoa and sweet spice aroma with a wonderful malty flavor all balanced with a delicate hop character. It is a beer designed to help you glide through the rest of winter and you may find yourself asking for more than one in an attempt to unlock this brew’s dark secret. “The beer is dark and my inspiration for brewing it is a secret, hence the name. My goal, not so secret - to produce an easy drinking dark ale. It’s my official drink for viewing the 2010 Winter Olympics,” said Full Sail’s Collin Godkin. ABV 6.2% IBU 31
