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.

    Barrels & Bottle - Lots Happening at the Commons Brewery | BREWPUBLIC - Yeast, Malt, and the Pursuit of Hoppiness

    […] Grgas also shared with us some of the recent and noteworthy goings-on happening with this farmhouse-inspired microbrewery. Bottles – We’re keeping Urban Farmhouse and Flemish Kiss as year round bottle offerings, with the hope of consistently having a seasonal bottle and the occasional one-off specialty release.    Currently Wit is our seasonal, but we’re hoping to have Fleur de Ferme, our dark farmhouse with hibiscus, lavender and chamomile, in the bottle for the first time sometime in October. Once winter has arrived we’ll have Little Brother, our Belgian Dark Strong, as well as the Bourbon aged version, Bourbon Little Brother, in bottles. The beer has already been brewed with the straight version conditioning in our cold tank to mellow and develop, while the Bourbon version is already sitting in some wet Heaven Hill barrels.    Barrels – I just picked up a few White Wine barrels from Adelsheim today which we’re going to inoculate with a Brett strain cultured from Drie Fonteinen and hopefully launch a sister product to Flemish Kiss called B Side. This will hopefully be a golden farmhouse ale primary fermented with our house farmhouse strain, then racked into these wine barrels and allowed to ferment with the Drie strain for about 5-6 weeks before being packaged and bottle conditioned.    We’re also expanding our stock of Eleanor, which is a sour farmhouse ale with magic. Originally a single barrel with some unique microflora, we’re hoping to carry over those organisms to other barrels and bottle this beer as a specialty release when it’s ready. Eleanor was originally released at this past Portland Cheers to Belgian Beers where it was one of the People’s choice finalists. We’re pretty excited about this beer and eager to have a bottle conditioned version to reach a wider audience. The release will coincide with a sour tap takeover of our tasting room taps.    There are also few smaller one off projects in the works, like a brett farmhouse ale being aged on fresh Italian Plums and a Gin barrel aged Belgian Single with rye and malted spelt.    In the meantime, Sean just brewed a really crisp, refreshing Golden Ale with homegrown Lemon Balm called Golden Harvest, we’ve got another batch of our Berliner Weisse in the tanks and on Friday we’re brewing our first 7bbl fresh hop beer, a sour farmhouse ale with fresh Meridian hops. Burke also informs us that the brewery will being brewing their Berliner Weiss next week as well.
