Bellingham’s Aslan Brewing Company (https://aslanbrewing.com/) has been a friend of Bellingham Sister Cities Association (BSCA) for several years now. This year they have donated cans of Tateyama Lager and Punta Arenas Helles Bock for us to give to new and renewing members. Please contact Jeff Eastman (email@example.com) or Scott Blume (firstname.lastname@example.org) to receive yours when you either renew or join!
The Tateyama Lager is becoming a regular spring seasonal for Aslan, so watch for it next spring. The brewers are now interested in a Finnish recipe in honor of Vaasa, perhaps for next year. Our Tsetserleg friends are also interested in suggesting a Mongolian-inspired beer for future development.
Both Tateyama, Japan and Punta Arenas, Chile are Sister Cities of Bellingham along with Vaasa (Finland), Tsetserleg (Mongolia), Cheongju (South Korea), Nakhodka (Russia) and Port Stephens (Australia).
