Schooner Exact Breweing, Bartell Drugs and United Creations collaborated on producing a special beer to celebrate Bartell Drugs' 125th anniversary.
The beer packaging design pays homage to the fact that George Bartell hopped on a boxcar back in Kansas City and ended up in Seattle, where he began his pharmacy 125 years ago. Boxcar Hopper is a rye bourbon barrel aged strong ale that was brewed and bottled to commemorate the 125th Anniversary of Bartell Drugs. It clocks in at 8.75% ABV.
Boxcar Hopper is available in 22 oz. bottles at all Bartell Drugs retail locations and at the Schooner Exact taproom in SoDo.
United Creations named the commemorative beer and designed the original packaging design.
