Admittedly from time to time news slips by the old Beer Northwest news desk. That's usually because I'm more busy drinking the beer or spirits than writing about it. Here are a few tidbits from earlier this week...

New Brews News
This super-refreshing German Hefeweizen features a tart wheat character, banana aroma, and a clove-like spiciness. Helgaweizen derives these wonderful flavors from imported German malt and yeast. No fruit or spices were added. This style is a perennial favorite at the brewery. It is historically correct to serve it with or without a slice of lemon- try it both ways. Prost!

Straight Up IPA
No smoke and mirrors here- this is just a good 'ol fashioned Straight Up IPA. We took some of our favorite malts and favorite hops and brewed them up into this simply delightful combination. In a world of crazy big IPAs (yeah we love 'em too!), this beer offers traditional, good-time, beer-drinking fun.

Tre Otto Amber
To celebrate 8-8-08 we brewed Tre Otto - an American Amber Ale with Liberty and Cluster hops. Expect a balanced ale with a slight toasty and fruity character offset nicely by an American hop character.

Our Weizenbock is a complex beer with that distinctive Bavarian wheat flavor. The aroma reminds one of bananas and apples while the finish is spicy with cloves. Wheat malt and yeast give a distinctive haze to this stronger and darker hefeweizen.

Liberty Red Single Hopped Ale
The seventh beer in our series of single hop Red Ales, Liberty Red brings us the wonders of the Liberty hop. Liberty hops are the American version of the German Hallertau and are known for their aromatic properties and mild bitterness. This beer features a nice citrus flavor with subtle earthy tones. Liberty Red is hopped like an American Pale Ale, with medium bitterness and a bit of dry hop aroma.
