First Chair, Last Call | You Earned It Series

Winter Ale

This entry to our You Earned It series is First Chair, Last Call, a winter ale. You Earned It is a program in which our team members take turns brewing a batch of beer on our pilot system. A portion of the sales from draft pours and cans sold are donated to a non-profit of their choice.

An epic crew of mountain-obsessed Bissell team members came together for this one: taproom manager James Krams, packaging manager Geoff Ballou, and taproom experts Nate Travis and Niko Burgess — with Nate Travis providing some killer can art. They brewed First Chair, Last Call to benefit Protect Our Winters, a non-profit that helps passionate outdoor people protect the places and lifestyles they love by focusing its efforts on legislation regarding climate change.

First Chair, Last call has a depth of wintery flavor and a gorgeous deep color thanks to its cozy, caramel-heavy grain bill. A modern twist on the more traditional, maltier ales that make for ideal slopeside refreshment.
