Introducing Pesca & La Truffe '18
Release Day: Saturday, March 17th, 2018 from noon-6pm and Sunday March 18th, noon-6pm
Join us tomorrow, this weekend at the brewery for the release of two very special beers: Pesca, a barrel-aged sour with rose hip wild yeast and local organic peaches, and the 2018 edition of our truffled hazelnut stout, La Truffe.
Pesca is a 100% oak-aged wild, dark saison with ample heft (8%abv) and the tang and pop of local organic peaches from Baird Orchards. With plenty of barrel character, Brett, and an indelible new label design by artist Jason Sturgill, Pesca was brewed with a rustic mix of pils malt and wheat primarily, then aged up to 15 months in barrels along with Brettanomyces plus a strain of wild yeasts we propagated from rose hips on the farm, drying the beer and imparting fine, faint tannins, then carefully bottle-conditioned. Recently accepted for the list at NYC's Eleven Madison Park restaurant (wahoo!), we're especially excited about this special release, available only at the farm in 750ml, $20 per bottle, limit 6. 8%ABV, 20IBU.
La Truffe is an annual collaboration with our friends at The Oregon Truffle Festival who, each winter, supply us with an extraordinary haul of ripe Oregon white truffles foraged in the area. The fleeting, earthy, rare air of Tuber oregonensis is not like anything else in nature. Transported into every sip of a supple, silky table stout brewed with a rich variety of grains and a kiss of lactose, truffles call to mind appealing notes of loamy wet dirt and mellow fusels almost like ozone. Our whole, dry-roasted filberts lend a rich, appealing nuttiness that no artificial extract could ever create. Going back over five years in conception, this rigorously handmade but super approachtable stout is one of our favorite projects and batch three (the 2nd in bottles) carries on the tradition most deliciously! $20/6 bottle limit. 4.7%ABV, 25IBU. We will also have a limited amount of La Truffe on draft during the release! Truffle burps are a certainty!
We'll have a deep tap list for the day as usual! See you soon!
