Upright brewing has been providing the good people of Portland with well crafted, innovative beer for a decade now! To help them celebrate we will be pouring some of our favorite Upright Beers, along with a couple of brand new beers, including their first foeder aged beers! The guys from Uprigth will be stopping by as well.
Foeder Doppelbock - classic doppelbock lagered seven weeks in stainless before being moved to the foeder for four weeks, then lagered a few more weeks in stainless. Surprisingly drinkable for the style, with oak tannin balancing a bit of malt sweetness. 8.5%
Sherry-finish Vanilla Quad - open fermented quad, passed through the foeder for three weeks and then transferred to sherry casks with Madagascar vanilla beans for finishing. 10%
Anniversary Saison This is a special ten year version of our Anniversary Saison! Organic malts, the best Oregon grown hops, and extensive barrel aging and bottle conditioning set this batch apart, yielding elements that come together in a way that speaks our language. The classic, pillowing head throws off a rustic yet complex nose - herbal hop, lush apricot, bright lime, warm oak, all of it tinged with dank cellar notes and wild yeasts. On the palate lively and balanced acidity works with a satisfying body rich with wheat and delicate hop and gin oils. This batch has been cellared for proper conditioning and development for over one year, and we hope that you’ll enjoy it straight away as it’s in peak form and ready to celebrate! 6%
Fantasia 2018 - Fantasia is brewed each summer in casks full of fresh peaches, marrying themes from the pajottenland and our own backyard. 6%
Rosa - Rosa is a unique beer blending a young and vibrant saison with a cask of barrel aged Rose, a beer using rose petals and aged in a pinot noir barrel. The resulting beer has an aromatic character similar to the vermouth of Asti, Italy, complimented by earthy brettanomyces flavors. 6%
