Beers

We’re a small brewery, which allows us to make many different beers, some regularly, while others are quick creative outbursts. Our rotating beers are brewed year round, but are not always in stock. Most of our beer is available on draft, but some are bottle conditioned in capped 750ml bottles.

Traditionally, Farmhouse Ales were brewed on farms in the French and Flemish regions of Belgium. These beers were born out of necessity as most water was not potable and the farmers needed a refreshing beverage to offer the hardworking farmhands. Our rendition was developed in the spirit of that tradition. The beer pours golden with a floral nose and a soft underlying hop bitterness with a crisp finish.

Flemish Kiss

ABV: 6.5% || Draft & Bottle

Silver Medal 2012 Great American Beer Festival

Right out of primary fermentation this beer is decidedly an American Pale Ale, but as it enters secondary, a bridge to Belgium is built with a dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. A 5 week maturation results in slightly dry, fruity beer with a hint of floral Brett character that will evolve over time.

Pils

ABV: 5% || Draft

A Northern German style Pilsner, which translates to a dry, crisp beer with a strong floral bitterness.

Myrtle

ABV: 5.2% || Draft & (Bottle available during Summer only)

Myrtle has a pleasant acidity from a Lactobacillus fermentation. Lemony Meridian hops grown in Silverton, OR enhance the citrus character of our house Lactobacillus strains and the fruity ester profile of our house farmhouse yeast.

Seasonals

Summer

Fall

Fleur de Ferme

ABV: 6% || Draft & Bottle

A dark farmhouse ale with hibiscus, lavender and chamomile added at the end of the boil. Malted Spelt provides a silky full body that supports the late-kettle flower additions.

Winter

Bourbon Little Brother

ABV: 10% || Bottle Only

A portion of Little Brother is added to Heaven Hill bourbon barrels after primary fermentation where it picks up a rich, bourbon flavor. After a few months this is then blended back with a non-barrel aged version that had been cold conditioning.

Boysen

ABV: 10% || Draft & Bottle

Brewed for the 2012 Holiday Ale Fest, this was a Imperial Belgian Porter fermented with our yeast from De Dolle Brouwers, then finished with Boysenberries in the brite tank.

Spring

Cerise Noir

ABV: 6% || Draft & Bottle

Cerise Noir is a tart, light bodied dark farmhouse ale with sweet and tart cherries added during fermentation.

Biere de Garde

ABV: 5.3% || Draft & Bottle

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. Traditionally, Biere de Garde was brewed while the climate was cooler, then garded (lagered) during the cool months. This beer offers a soft and clean, malt forward flavor with a reserved hop profile.

Summer

Fleur de Blanc

ABV: 5.2% || Draft & Bottle

A white farmhouse with rose hips, rose pedals and elder flowers. The addition of spelt provides a foundation for the delicate floral characters to build on. A wonderful summer thirst quencher!

Myrtle

ABV: 5.2% || Draft & Bottle

Myrtle has a pleasant acidity from a Lactobacillus fermentation. Lemony Meridian hops grown in Silverton, Oregon enhances the citrus character of our house Lactobacillus culture and the fruity ester profile of our house farmhouse yeast.

Beetje Series

A Flemish word for ‘little bit’, the garage brewery lives on through these small batch, experimental, beers.

Plum Bretta

ABV: 5.4% || Currently Available

Plum Bretta is a farmhouse ale fermented with our house culture Brettanomyces blend before aging in wine barrels with 250 pounds of local plums from our friends at High Grove Farms in Helvetia, Oregon.

Brotherly Love

ABV: 10% || Released Every February

Brotherly Love is our Belgian Dark Strong Ale, Little Brother, aged in second-use Bourbon barrels with Northwest grown sour cherries and Ecuadorian cacao nibs roasted by Woodblock Chocolate in SE Portland.
