Cascade: Sang Noir – American Wilde Ale 9.3% ABV

Oakshire – Hellshire VII – Russian Imperial Stout 13.75% ABV
Description: We formulated the burliest Russian Imperial Stout that we could dream up and laid it to rest for the last year in freshly dumped bourbon barrels. What has emerged is a massive and deeply complex entity that we are excited to share with the world.
Rogue – Old Crustacean Barleywine (2014) – Barleywine 11.5% ABV
Description: An unfiltered and unfined Barleywine. Intense, robust, malty and dark. The cognac of beers. Rogue’s barleywine is described by beer expert Stuart Ramsey as: “A masterful, intense creation from brewer John Maier….it has achieved a depth and complexity usually associated with well-ages strong ales.”
Fort George – 10th Anniversary Barleywine – Barleywine 12.5% ABV

A strong barley base balanced with heaping hop additions, all carefully aged in Adelsheim and Argyle Pinot Noir barrels in the windows of the Lovell Showroom. With a barleywine this strong, it will get better and better with age – just like Fort George.

2 Towns – Cidre Bouche – Barrel Aged Cider – 7%
Description: Inspired by the bittersweet ciders of France, Cidre Bouché is made using an old-world process called keeving. Starting with 100% traditional cider varieties like Kingston Black, Michelin, Reine des Pommes, Dabinett and Muscat de Lense, we let the fruit ‘sweat’ and intensify in aroma. The apples are crushed and left to soak on the skins before the juice is fermented slowly over the course of a year, and aged in French oak casks. When finished, this keeved cider is rich, thick, and brimming with overripe bittersweet apple character
We are working on getting a barrel aged cider or two as well and we might add another beer or two as well depending on availability before the event. 😀
