 Enjoy an evening learning about tasting techniques, on and off flavors, and what causes these flavors in your beer. This is a great way to deepen your experience and appreciation of craft beer while celebrating Central Oregon Beer Week!

 The event will be held at the Deschutes Brewery Mtn. Room on May 24th   from 6pm-8pm. Light fare, a pint of beer and all sample/sensory brews will be included for $20 ticket fee. Additional pints will be for sale after the event.

 Class materials will be provided, but please feel free to bring a pen and paper to take extra notes. If you have any questions on this class, feel free to email Ali at aburke@deschutesbrewery.com with any questions. We look forward to seeing you there. Cheers!

The Ale Apothecary › ¡Vamonós! Beer Release @ Ale Apothecary Tasting Room
May 27 @ 2:00 pm – 7:00 pm


[hr]

Let’s Go!

We called this beer ¡Vamonós! (as in ‘Let’s Go’) as our rallying (or empathetic) cry that we’ve had enough of this president and would like to get this ugly political period behind us.  The fact that this beer is quite a bit funkier and tarter than most of our beers seems to fit with this concept.
It is distinctly different from our other beers; it was first soured by lactobacillus and aged in a barrel for a few months prior to the saccharomycesfermentation.  After this fermentation, we aged the beer in another barrel for over a year prior to packaging, using agave nectar as the sugar source for the yeast to naturally carbonate each bottle.  This beer was never boiled and never had any hops added to it!  It is a very old-world example of how beers were made prior to our modern methods.  The low ph environment of the initial lactobacillus activity ‘preserved’ the beer and the alcoholic fermentation by yeast ensured that preservation.
¡Vamonós!
A sour beer for sour times.
