On Wednesday April 4th starting at 6PM we will release our first seasonal beer in bottles – Biere de Garde – at Cheese Bar on SE Belmont and 60th.
Our Biere de Garde was inspired by the farmhouse beers brewed in Northern France and our friend Steve Jones, Proprietor and Cheesemonger at Cheese Bar in Portland, Oregon. When Steve was lamenting about the dearth of food friendly Biere de Gardes in our area we took that as a cue to develop a beer that would fill the gap. Traditionally, Biere de Garde was brewed in Winter and early Spring while the climate was cooler, then garded (lagered) during the cool months, and reserved for consumption during the summer. This beer offers a soft and clean, malt forward flavor with a reserved hop profile.
Biere de Garde will be available on draft and Cheese Bar will have bottles at a discount on the night of the release. We’ll also have bottles available for sale at our Tasting Room beginning this weekend. Hours are Friday 5-9PM and Saturday 4-9PM.
Also on Wednesday at Cheese Bar, beginning 7PM, our brewer, Sean Burke, will be spinning some of his favorite old country western records as part of Cheese Bar’s Brewer DJ Night.
