Darcelle XV is Portland's original drag queen. She is frequently introduced on stage as The Bold, The Blonde, and The Beautiful, so when it came to developing the flavor profile, Gigantic Brewing Company knew exactly where to go: locally grown Cashmere and Luminosa hops to be apropos as well as to create a bright and tropical IPA with mango, candied orange peel, and peach notes.

Gigantic Brewing Company’s ongoing collaboration with Weird Portland United (WPU) returns with a Blonde IPA celebrating the work and influence of Darcelle XV, Portland’s original drag queen. Darcelle has been entertaining audiences and supporting the drag and LGBTQ+ community for over 55 years, and holds the Guinness record for being ‘The World’s Oldest Performing Drag Queen’.
