It feels like just yesterday we were unveiling our summer beers for you, and here we are now, the leaves are changing, the days are colder and it’s time for some new beers to go with the season!
On November 11th, we will be releasing four new beers and hosting our fall release party for our membership! We’re bringing back some classic Alesong originals, diving deep into fresh hops and of course, there will be fruit!
Rhino Suit – You know the one, the first spirits barrel-aged imperial milk stout we ever released here back in 2016! It’s back with flavors of vanilla and coconut over the velvety chocolatey malty profile of the base stout.
Four Merchants – Another classic! This time around we’ve matured our Four Brothers quad in red wine barrels with just the right blend of spices to complement the complex flavors of the base Belgian-style quad.
Raspberry Parliament – Inspired by the red and brown ales from the Flanders region in Belgium, we initially matured this unique wild ale in Oregon Pinot Noir barrels. It was then moved into 2nd use charred American oak barrels that formerly held bourbon with Oregon raspberries to provide tart and sweet flavors that marry with the mild oak and funkadelic yeast complexities. Ya dig?
Farm Fresh – Fall in the Pacific Northwest brings the harvest of one of our beer-loving state’s most prized crops - hops! We took advantage of this year’s bounty by stuffing fresh Centennial hops from nearby Norton Hop Farm into barrels of an aged, light-bodied, and tart farmhouse ale.
As always, these beers will be released in conjunction with a celebration for our members at our tasting room. From 12-6pm on 11/11 we will have tastings of each of the new beers paired with delicious small bites, and live music from Moonlight Jubilee! Beers will be released online to our mailing list a few weeks prior to the event, and the only way to get into the party is to order from the presale, so keep your eyes peeled for that email announcing the online store! Remaining inventory will be released in our tasting room and to our accounts the following week.
Stay tuned for our release email coming the week of October 28th, and keep checking back here for more on each of these new beers!
