Graduate Golden Ale from Ten Pin Brewing of Moses Lake, Wash, will debut in Pullman at a release party at 5 p.m. Thursday at The Coug, 900 NE Colorado St. One dollar from each pint purchased will support scholarships.
Other release parties are planned throughout the state. Besides the parties, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of kegs or half kegs of the ale will be donated to the scholarships.
About 200 kegs of Graduate Golden Ale will be produced, according to a news release.
This is the second year that beer sales will help fund scholarships. This year the university worked with Yakima Chief Hops of Moses Lake, Wash., which provided hops for the ale at a discounted price. Last year the school worked with Old School House Brewery in Winthrop, Wash., to release Scholar Pale Ale. Future beer partnerships are planned to support WSU scholarships, according to the release.
