So we’ve been working on this thing for over a year now and although there’s a long way to go, it feels like we’re long overdue for a celebration! It’s tough to be a barrel-aged brewery and not have anything that’s actually been in a barrel ready to sell…
…but we’ve finally got a handful of oak-aged beers that are ready to be shared with the world! We still aren’t set up in the country farmhouse brewery we hope to eventually have, but hope you’ll join us to celebrate and try these beers at our humble home in west Eugene as we open it to the public for the first time. We’ll celebrate with live music, some awesome local food trucks and most importantly, be pouring 10-12 of our beers including 5 new beers, a handful of current releases and some special one-off kegs!
We’ll publish the backstory and a lot more detail on each of these as we finalize blends over the next few weeks, but to give a little preview of what’s coming for you to decipher from the names, the beers set for release that day include – A Touch of Brett, Tangled up in Blueberry, Hop Farm, Gin Hop Farm, and Blackberry Gose.
We’ve also been spending our weekends (with the help of some awesome volunteers - thank you!) bottling each of these beers so you’ll be able to take them home with you to enjoy later as well!
More details on the event!
Who – YOU! And us! And your friends and families (kids welcome)!
What – Alesong Brewing & Blending’s inaugural bottle release and brewery opening! Try all our beers in one place, enjoy some awesome food and live music and take a peek into our cellar to see where the magic happens! Then go home with bottles of your favorites to enjoy later!
Where – Our brewery. 1000 Conger Street, Unit C (behind Tommy’s Paint Pot at 10th and Conger in Eugene)
When – Saturday, August 20th from 2-8 P.M.
Admission – Admission is $15 and includes a commemorative Teku glass and tokens for tastings. Full pours and additional tastings will be available for additional cost and mailing list members who purchase at least 6 bottles in the pre-sale will enter free.
Bottle pre-sale – In the next week or so we will be sending out an email to our mailing list offering a presale of each of the 5 new beers being released in bottle to make sure our loyal customers get first shot at everything. If you haven’t yet signed up for our mailing list, you can do so here (there’s no obligation to buy). Bottles purchased in the presale will be available for pickup on the day of the event and there will also be a limited number of additional bottles available for purchase on site that day.
I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but really the important thing is to put the date on your calendar (gCal or iCal) and sign up for the mailing list if the presale / free event admission interests you.
Start getting excited!!
