Beer & Cider List:

Alesong Brewing & Blending: Cherry Parliament
We initially matured this unique wild ale on Oregon Pinot Noir barrels. It was then moved into second use bourbon barrels with bing and lapin cherries from Hood River, OR, to provide tart and sweet flavors that marry with the mild oak and funkadelic yeast complexities. Ya dig? 7.4% Abv.

Almanac Brewing: Vanilla Cherry Dogpatch
Sour red ale aged in wine barrels with Bing, Rainier, and Montmorency cherries and whole Madagascar vanilla beans. 7.54% Abv.

Almanac Brewing: Cherry Picker
Cherry Picker is our newest fruit-forward Brettanomyces ale. After hand-selecting our best Brett beer barrels with the brightest fruit character, we added Balaton and Montmorency cherries picked from the very highest tree branches, closest to the sun, for maximum ripeness. We then blended the components back together, fusing Brett funk with cherry pie aromas to create a rich, crimson, cherry bomb of a beer. 6.9% Abv.

Bend Brewing: Lovely Cherry Baltic Porter
A blend of year-old and fresh baltic porter aged on Montmorency cherries for three months. 9.5% Abv.

The Bruery: Sans Pagaie
A take on a Belgian-style kriek, which is a sour blonde ale aged in barrels with cherries. The base beer has a subtle funk, which melds gently with the fruit giving this beer flavors reminiscent of coconut, vanilla yogurt and of, course, fresh cherries. A complex beer, perfect for a warm California day in the park with a slice of homemade cheesecake. 6.6% Abv.

Beachwood Blendery: Careful with that Cherry, Eugene
Belgian Lambic-style sour ale brewed with Cherries.

Burnside Brewing: Cherry Sweet Heat
A one-off cherry infused version of Burnside Brewing’s Gold medal winning Sweet Heat, a wheat beer brewed with apricots and scotch bonnet peppers. This special version with the extra sweet and tart twang of real cherries!

Crooked Stave Artisan Beer: Petit Sour Cherry
Tart Cherry is the fourth varietal in our Petite Sour series. This 5.5% ABV beer pours a rich red, with a snap of tartness from the addition of the equivalent of over a pound per gallon of sour cherries, after being primary fermented in oak with our mixed culture of wild yeast and bacteria. 5.5% Abv.

Culmination Brewing: Kriek Noir
A dark Lambic-style cherry sour ale.

De Garde Brewing: Kriek
Double Mountain Brewing: Devil’s Kriek

Engine House No 9: Wild Tacoma Cherry
American Wild Ale with Bing Cherries 5.8% ABV
Deliciously tart wild ale with a brilliant red tone blended from 1-3 year old barrels of our house “Wild Tacoma” mixed culture ale. Racked onto whole Bing cherries from our friends at Diamondback Acres in Chelan, Washington. Crisp, and refreshing with a slight hint of barrel character.

Fort George Brewing/Finnriver Cidery: Shady Grove
A blend of deep red, fruity, tart and funky saison with wild yeast and brett aged in oak wine barrels with a dark black cherry cider, also aged in French oak wine barrels.  It’s a union of sour cider and sour saison aged in wine barrels. 6.5% Abv.

Fremont Brewing: Cherry Bourbon Barrel-aged Dark Star
A one-off Cherry infused Imperial Oatmeal Stout aged in 15 year-old Kentucky bourbon barrels. Blend of 24, 12, and 6 month bourbon-barrel Dark Star. 14.5% Abv.

Logsdon Farmhouse Ales: Krieke Vier
A quadrupel based beer with intense Kriek flavor aged for 4 months in bourbon barrels with cherries. This beer was compiled by the Logsdon crew of 4 with 4 of our initial seizoen yeast strains and 4 more cultures of Brettanomyces and lactic bacteria. Krieke Vier is a big beer with great flavor intensity and incredible cherry complexity that is smooth and easy to drink. 9.9% Abv.

Lompoc Brewing: Kriektucky
Golden Ale aged for 10 months in Heaven Hill Distillery Bourbon barrels on 45 lbs of sour cherries. 5.5% Abv.

Marble Brewing: Cherry Gose
Sharp acidity meets subtle sweetness balanced with clean salinity. Beat the heat with this Red Cherry infused Gose! 4.6% Abv.

Oakshire Brewing: Heart Shaped Box
Bourbon barrel-agedimperial stout with cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, espresso and sweet cherries. 12% Abv.

Ommegang Brewery: Rosetta
Ale aged on cherries. Traditional Belgian Kriek, pleasingly tart with a touch of sweetness. Brewed exclusively for Brewery Ommegang by Liefmans, a sister brewery, in Belgium. 5.6% Abv.

pFriem Family Brewers: Oude Kriek
Adding fresh, Hood River cherries to our barrel aged lambic ale makes us happy, but 10 months later, flavors of cherry pie and the dry, tangy finish are even more satisfying. 5.6% Abv.

Portland Cider: The Queen’s Kriek
We’ve combined Belgian & English traditions with fresh Oregon Cherries and classic beer making techniques to create a dynamic Kriek-style cider.  Aged for over 6 months, with at least 1 month in charred oak barrels for tons of body, character and depth. Dry, and lightly tart, with a little fizz; Truly a cider fit for the Queen.

Prairie Artisan Ales: Vape Tricks
Sour ale aged on cherries. 5.9% Abv.

Propolis Brewing: Grenache Kriek
Grenache barrel aged golden brettanomyces saison with cherries. This is a rare “pre blend” ale straight from the barrel.

Ruse Brewing: Kriek
Flanders red base primarily fermented in stainless with our house ale strain then transfered into pinot noir barrels from Violin Wine on top of 100+lbs/cask of Bing cherries from amazing fruit growers Baird Family Orchards. All bacteria and yeast sourced from the skins of the fruit. 6.2% ABV.

‘t Hofbrouwerijke: Anarkriek, 2016 vintage
Belgian Strong Dark Ale with cherries. 8.5% Abv.

Upright Brewing: Shades
Shades also uses cherries from Baird, although in this case we’re talking Rainiers, which don’t alter the color of the beer. This is deceiving, because it’s loaded with fruit flavor–employing over 100 pounds per cask–although this blend only comprised six barrels. Upright brewers used two different lots of cherries, one notably sweet and the other tart, and inoculated the casks with three different brettanomyces strains. The beer was aged and conditioned just like the Hearts’ Beat, but the brett was pushed further to produce a funkier aromatic profile with a bit more acidity. Both beers are named after a Charles Mingus composition from his album “The Black Saint and Sinner Lady.” 8% Abv.

Wander Brewing: Addo Kriek
European specialty malts. German Noble hops. Mixed culture fermentation. Foeder aged for 9 months followed by 3 months of aging on Montmorency cherries. Crimson hued. Dark tart fruit, oak, clove, effervescent, sour. Dry. 7.3% ABV // 5 IBU // 18 SRM

Wolves & People Farmhouse Brewery: Sebastian Cherry
Tart and lush with rich, pie spice-like notes, our Sebastian Cherry is a blend of several oak-aged Sebastian saisons refermented in the cask with local Montmorency cherries. Try it with with any rich pork dish or even a ripe & aromatic bleu cheese. 6.4%abv

10.28 Tribute to the Gorge

Posted by hilda on October 22, 2017

For many locals The Columbia River Gorge is just as 22489856_1902993516619903_297240066453452288_nmuch a part of their lives as their careers or childhoods; it’s always been there for us. The recent forest fire at Eagle Creek, which left more than 50,000 acres of the Gorge burned, was devastating to many. People were shocked as they watched their favorite trails – the playgrounds on which they grew up – suffer damage because of mistreatment. We owe much to the Columbia River Gorge and it is for this reason a fundraiser will be held for it this autumn.

On Saturday, October 28th from 4-7 PM come dine and drink at Bazi Bierbrasserie (1522 SE 32nd Ave) for a night of tribute to the Columbia River Gorge. On this evening, a collection of photographs – graciously donated by some of the most prolific photographers residing in and around Portland – will be on display and available for bidding via silent auction. Each print is homage to some of the most beloved attractions in the area. 100% of the proceeds from the silent auction will go to the Friends of the Gorge, who is the local non-profit in responsible for the caretaking of the Columbia River Gorge. Bidding will end at 7 pm and winners will be announced soon afterwards. In addition, a portion of all food and beverage sales that day will also go towards the Friends of the Gorge – 10% of credit card transactions and 15% of cash transactions.

Change comes slowly, but through caring and dedication we can ensure the success of both. With your support, we can begin the process of restoring the Columbia River Gorge and increase outdoor awareness so that future destruction caused by negligence may be prevented.

10.27 Kwaktoberfest

Posted by hilda on October 15, 2017

Artisinal Imports bring you Kwaktoberfest on Friday, October 27th from 5-11 PM featuring a tasting tray with Bosteels Brewery three famous beers: Kwak, Tripel Karmeliet and DeuS. 5 oz samples of each for only $15 and the opportunity to take home a Quattro with you. This is your opportunity to try the infamous DeuS, available only in 750 ml Dom Perignon bottles.

About the beers for the tasting event:quattro

  • Deus undergoes a lengthy, costly maturation in the Champagne caves of France. The elegant and labor-intensive “methode Champenoise” produces the best sparkling beverages in the world. DeuS has characteristics of both sparkling wine (fine, velvety carbonation) and specialty beer (rich maltiness) but also exhibits a fragrant, herbal and spicy character quite unique and special. Flavors of anise, mint, malt, lavender, and a barely perceptible hoppiness make DeuS a very sophisticated treat. Only available in 750 ml bottles.
  • Kwak is rich amber in color with a slightly sweet, generously malty character. Hops are subdued, but present a well-considered balance with the juicy ripeness of grain and a fruity, meringue softness.
  • Brewed with oats, barley and wheat, Tripel Karmeliet has soft, full, rich grain character with hints of banana, vanilla, and a slight, pleasing bubble-gum aroma. A restrained hop bitterness offers perfect balance and a gentle counterpart to its substantial maltiness. World’s Best Ale 2008.

No tricks here, just treats and lots of them!!!! So give the Kwak a try, after all, the glass is half the fun!

Paulaner Salvator Doppelbock, 7.9% ABV, head has a caramel hue and the beer is full bodied with a rich, warm chestnut brown color. The taste is unmistakable, with its smooth chocolate flavor, robust dark caramel maltiness and a light note of hops in the background – providing a nice intensity on the palate.’

Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest Marzen, 5.8% ABV, fruity notes of cassis and earthy tones reminiscent of cedar.

The Altengartz Bratwurst available only at Sheridan Fruit Co. is made by a pair of guys with a rich German heritage. The bratwurst will be simmered in each of the 6 beers for the pairing.
