This is a special beer brewed by all members of Green Dragon Brewing (Rich, Steve, Alex, Warren, Tracy and Dylan) on two back-to-back brew days, December 30th & 31st of 2017. It is a classic Belgian dark strong ale. This special-edition was aged for two months in a Rogue-made, 20 gallon oak barrel with Rogue Dark Rum. It was then cellared and aged for over a year. Look out for the apple, plum and oak flavor characteristics and let it warm you up. Cheers!
Five malts were blended with the base malt to produce this big, wintery, Russian Imperial Stout. The resulting beer was aged for twenty months to smooth out the bite of the large malt bill and produce this smooth but big ol’ stout for Big Beer Month, 2020. The complexity of the grain bill shines through the smooth magnum hop bitter and results in a meld of chocolate, malt, and a touch of vanilla flavors riding on a backbone of a rich, full bodied stout. Enjoy the complex flavors of this Winter bounty.
To start off Big A$$ Beer Month (BABM) 2020, Gelber Drache (Yellow Dragon) is here to bring you warmth, illumination and wealth for the new year. The Sorachi Ace and Citra hops provide a lemony-citrus flavor to this monster. It is big, with a beautiful, long-lasting white head and a lingering bitterness, nicely balanced by the Weyermann pilsner malt.
In Japanese tradition the color yellow symbolizes courage and protection, so don’t be a coward, but enjoy carefully as it is a very powerful beast. Happy New Year!
