Jaggery IPA

The tropical flavors of palm sugar (Jaggery) mixed with sweet malt from Gambrinus combine to produce a tangy IPA for a hot afternoon. Magnum hops are used for bittering and a generous portion of fresh Casdade leaf hops for aroma near the end of the boil to produce a fresh citrus flavor to blend with the jaggery and malt. Clear, clean, and tropically refreshing, Jaggery IPA is great on a hot afternoon.

Barley Bustin’ Wine

The first beer in our Barleywine festival is a wonderful, malty example of what many will have in mind as barleywine; malty, big, semi-sweet with a long, bitter hop, finish.
We brewed this beer in November with a base malt of a 50-50 blend of English and American malts.  Added are small amounts of Vienna and Wheat malt for character and head retention. After a low temperature mash, we decocted five gallons and then caramelized the first runnings. The result is a beer with a huge body, malty with notes of caramel and a good bit of alcohol.  We rounded out the beer with Warrior hops for bittering and Mosaic hops for flavor to bring some balance to this great example of traditional barleywine.

Fresh Hop Blonde

Gardeners all over Portland grow hop plants for their beauty, fragrance, and shade each year. Our guest tonight, a master organic gardener on the West side, grew the hops for this beer and contributed three pounds of Newport hops as well as one pound of Mt. Hood hops. We picked the hops in the afternoon and made this Fresh (hop) Blonde ale with them the next day. Roughly a bag of malted barley went in to the mash. To start the boil we added two ounces of Horizon hop pellets for a mild bittering. Then late in the boil we added the fresh hops for flavor and aroma. The intention was to make a clear, light golden (blonde) ale with the goodness of flavor and aroma from freshly harvested hops. Enjoy the bounty of the PNW garden in your glass.
