3.12 5th Annual Saison Greetings

Posted by hilda on March 5, 2017

It’s daylight savings time! Spring forward to Bazi on Sunday, March 12th from 11 AM-8 PM for a farmhouse ale tap takeover featuring domestic and imported Belgian inspired beers. The beer and cider lineup includes:

Coldfire Rustic Saison (Oregon): 6.7% ABV, a traditional Belgian Saison made with a blending of yeasts and delivering flavors of apricot, black pepper, stonefruit, honeydew, light banana/clove, & grains of paradise. Herbal and spicy hints with a nice dry finish, make this versatile beer a lovely compliment to almost any meal.

The Commons & Perennial Brewery Collaboration Meriwether (Oregon/Missouri): 5.5% ABV, blend of both brewery house saison yeasts, dry-hopped with German Hallertau hops, finishes dry and minerally.

De Garde Petite Desay (Oregon): 5% ABV, a tart farmhouse style ale with citrus and lemon flavors.

Ninkasi Ginger & Juice Farmhouse Ale (Oregon): 5.5% ABV, Crisp and complex, this Saison is crafted in the traditional farmhouse-style with subtle hints of real ginger and apricot. Distinctively fruity and slightly peppery with an energetic effervescence, Ginger & Juice finishes dry and satisfying, perfect after a long day’s work.

Fort George Tempest Saison (Oregon): 8.4% ABV, imperial amber French saison with cherries and vanilla. Peppery esters from the French Saison yeast, layers of cherries and vanilla bean, punctuated with a dry finish.

Gigantic Lustrous Saison (Oregon): 8% ABV, a golden, effervescent and refreshing farmhouse ale with a kiss of orange peel. For Lustrous Gigantic wanted to bring a summer twist to saison by adding orange peel and dry hopping with Mandarina Bavaria hops. Fermented with French saison yeast, the beer has bright citrus, with peppery and floral notes with a dry finish.

Lost Abbey Carnevale (California): 6.5% ABV, brewed in celebration of Lent and Easter season, Carnevale is light bodied Saison, using Brettanomyces along with Amarillo and Simcoe hops to generate flavor and depth. Carnevale’s complexity grows with time. The citrus notes tend to wane and the wild yeast rears its wonderfully tasting head.

Upright Vert (Oregon): 4.75% ABV, wheat based brew using sun dried black limes that contribute not only an attractive flavor of citrus but also a depth that when combined with the open fermentation method and saison strains, results in a complex profile. The Vert rides the fine line of being easy and enjoyable but full of nuance.

Du Bocq Saison 1858 (Belgium): 6.6% ABV, named “World’s Best Saison” World Beer Awards, 2013 and Gold Medal recipient at the World Beer Championship 2014 Gold Medal, 94 Points and Top-Rated Saison, World Beer Championships, May 2014. First time available on draft in the US.

Saison Dupont (Belgium): 6.5% ABV, straw color, dense creamy head, estery with citrus and spice notes. Named 100 Beers to Try Before You Die.

Saison Dupont Cuvee Dry Hopping (Belgium): 6.5% ABV, the special feature of this beer, which is produced in limited quantities, is that the hops used for the “dry hopping” are different every year. This year, three distinctive hop varieties were selected. For the dry hopping, brews were made from the “Brewers Gold” variety, grown in Germany. The result is a coppery, blond beer, dry and refreshing with sustained bitterness. The use of Brewers Gold in Dry Hopping intensifies the fruity notes (mainly white fruits and citrus) and gives the beer a perfume of fresh hops.

Unibroue A Tout Le Monde (Canada): 4.5% ABV, hoppy with tropical fruit and citrus notes, delicately spiced flavors, citrusy and slightly tart with hints of tropical fruit such as mango and lychee.

Baird & Deward Farmhouse Cider (Oregon): 7.2% ABV, blend of sustainable grown French, English, and American heirloom and cider apples from the Willamette and Hood River Valleys are hand-pressed. Juice is then wild-fermented dry and aged 5 months in French oak barrels.

Sampler trays will be available for purchase. Choose any 4 for $9. Each flight consists of 4 – 5 oz pours. And don’t forget the all Sunday Happy Hour, so come thirsty and hungry!

2.24 Cuvee Van De Keizer Day

Posted by hilda on February 16, 2017

cuveevandekeizerbottleSince 1999 Brouwerij Het Anker has been brewing Gouden Carolus Cuvee van de Keizer, the Grand Cru of the Emperor, every February 24th, to celebrate the birthday of Emperor Charles V. Charles was the only Holy Roman Emperor to rule Europe from Belgium, and he had his court in the small Belgian town of Mechelen, the home of Het Anker. In 1999 Charles Leclef, the 5th generation owner of Het Anker, decided to brew a special beer to honor the Emperor, creating a stronger version of the beer which Het Anker had brewed for the Emperor’s court centuries ago.

On February 24, 2016 from 5-9 PM Wetten Importers is hosting the 2nd annual Cuvee van de Keizer Day, to celebrate this very special brew. Having won numerous international awards, including World’s Best Belgian-Style Strong Beer at the 2015 World Beer Awards, if any beer is worthy of having its own day, it is the Grand Cru of the Emperor.

The two beers and whisky tasting will consist of the Cuvee Van De Keizer, the Gouden Carolus Classic paired with the Gouden Carolus Single Malt whiskey – a refined whisky distilled from the mash of the Gouden Carolus tripel beer.

The tasting will be $12 for pours of the two beers and whisky. If you’re planning a trip to Belgium in the future, ask Hilda, about her recent experience traveling to Belgium and spending the night at Het Anker – one of a few hotels inside a brewery.

  • New Belgium Lips of Faith Anne-Francoise Spiced Dark Strong Ale: 9.5% ABV, collaboration between Orval’s first female brewmaster Anne-Françoise Pypaert and New Belgium’s Peter Bouckaert. Spruce tips and medium-toasted American oak were added to this brooding chocolaty beer, and then wove deeply herbal French Sprisselspalt and spicy Liberty and Willamette hops into the mix.
  • New Belgium Lips of Faith Flowering Citrus Ale:4% ABV, collaboration with Antwerp’s historic De Koninck Brewery is a delightful burst of citrus and flowers, keeping pace with the color and commotion of summer. Sit back and enjoy the pop of key lime and whole lemons; breath in the fragrance of hibiscus, rose petals and strawberry-tinged Mistral hops; toast to life’s pleasant surprises.
  • New Belgium Lips of Faith Golden Ale: 7% ABV, collaboration with Belgium’s Hof Ten Dormaal blends modern Mosaic hops and malted sunflower seeds with Old World ingredients such as Saaz hops, spelt, and wild carrot herbs.
