One beer that has been inspiration to so many others has been Orval, the famous Trappist beer made at the Brasserie d’Orval. Sean Burke is one such brewer that has been inspired by this beer and has brewed Known Presence, a Belgian-style Pale that will be released on Saturday, August 24th a Von Ebert Brewing – Glendoveer.
Burke’s homage to the classic Orval is not intended to recreate, but rather pay tribute to one of his most beloved Belgian beers with a North American twist. Known Presence was fermented in stainless steel, then moved to oak puncheons to condition with brettanomyces for eight months. It was then taken out of the puncheons and dry-hopped with Santiam and Savinjski Golding Hops before being bottle conditioned. The final beer finishes at 6% ABV.
To support the release of Known Presence a bit more, Von Ebert Brewing – Glendoveer is partnering with renowned cheesemonger Steve Jones of Cheese Bar. On August 24th from 11:00am-3:00pm, Von Ebert’s Glendoveer location will offer a special meat & cheese pairing. For $25.00 ($27.24 after fees) you’ll receive a bottle of the Known Presence plus a glass of the beer to be paired with meat & cheese prepared by Steve Jones from Cheese Bar!
