Brewed by Boneyard Beer in collaboration with John Harris long time Oregon Brewmaster.
Tony Lawrence, Boneyard’s Brewmaster and Co-Owner, and John Harris met up many moons ago back in their days at Deschutes Brewery. Back then John hired Tony to “wreck his life” as a cleanup brewer. Now 22 year’s later Tony is rocking it down at Boneyard Beer. He called up John and said “we need to brew a beer together and ferment it in the “Harris” tank.” John said the what tank? Tony explained that he names his tanks at Boneyard after people. John said “Wow. you named a tank after me”
So on September 10th Tony and John met up at Boneyard to brew a India Wheat Ale (IWA). Featuring a good portion of wheat malt along with pale malt and a touch of crystal then hopping it well beyond Boneyard’s RPM IPA. Simcoe and Amarillo were used exclusively throughout the process. Aleias IWA has a crisp malt character with loads of citrus and tropical hop flavor coming from using 3.5 pounds of hops per barrel. Aleias was dry hopped 3 times. Only 40 barrels of this 7.1% beer were produced. Get it while you can!
Aleias will be released on October 4th
Roving release party. Come hang with Tony and John.
