Wednesday, September 25th @6pm. An Evening of Fresh Hops with Breakside Brewing

While we’re changing how we’re doing or hop celebration in October, that doesn’t mean we won’t have any fresh hop nights. Since the harvest came early, so are the beers; and that means, one of our fresh hop focused events is going to happen in September.

Breakside Brewing down in Portland has been one of our good friends for the last several years. After hearing that they were coming out with several fresh hop beers in a short period of time, we thought it might be a great idea to grab them all at once at put them on for a special showcase. After all, they brew some of the best fresh hop beers all season.

On September 25th, we’ll be tapping those five kegs and giving everyone a head-start in their quest to try as many freshies as possible during our favorite season of the year. The list of beers includes:

Fresh Sterling Pilsner
Fresh Simcoe Breakside IPA
Fresh Cascade Wanderlust
Fresh Chinook Thirst Trap
Fresh Mosaic Rough Beast

And as a special treat, we’re going to tap The Mountains of Instead, a barrel-aged Apple Ale that we’ve been holding onto for a special occasion.

Thursday, September 19th @ 6pm Aslan/Masonry/Brouwer’s Fremontii Beer Release

We invite you to join us 09/19 for the release of Fremontii. We will be pouring the draft starting at 6pm. Bottleworks will be selling Bottles of Fremontii @ 11am. This beer will only be available at Brouwer’s, Bottleworks, The Masonry and Aslan. We all thought this would be a great way to welcome Aslan to Fremont. Look out there goes the neighborhood.

Fremontii is the result of an afternoon of barrel tasting and blending with Aslan, Brouwer’s and The Masonry. What we came up with was a blend of 3 barrels. 2/3 of the blend consisted of a rustic bock style beer, which was lagered in clean French oak puncheons throughout the winter of 2017. In the spring of 2018 it was re-barreled into second use bourbon barrels and well conditioned wine casks; we took one of each. The other 1/3 of the blend was a 30 month old cask of mixed culture pale Saison. Its difficult to say what “kind” of beer this is, but what we can say is that has well matured acidity, hints of bourbon, and sweet caramel, with classic brett brux in the background. Bottle conditioned with native yeasts and bacteria for 6 months prior to release. 9% ABV
