The first beer releases of 2018 from Alesong Brewing & Blending will take place in early February. During this release on Sunday, February 11th at its Tasting Room south of Eugene, Alesong Brewing will release five new beers – Four Pirates, Kentucky Kilt, Pêche, Rackhouse Reserve, and White.
Taking place from Noon-6:00pm, Alesong’s February beer release will be hosted in its Barrel Cellar. The new beers will be available for tasting for the very first time in Oregon and will be paired with custom chocolate confections alongside live music and a food cart. The tasting room will be open to the public as normal, but the release celebration in the cellar and access to the new beers will only be for those who pre-order, with a 6 bottle purchase waiving the $20 entry fee.
The new release will be available for all in the tasting room and select restaurants and bottle shops the following week. We will feature Rackhouse Reserve as one of the beers at BREWPUBLIC’s 9th Annual My Beery Valentine on February 14th at Bazi Bierbrasserie.
“We are more than happy to help anyone out who is looking for an excuse to ditch their New Years’ resolutions,” says cofounder, Doug Coombs in a prepared statement. “And what better way to get through the rest of these cold winter days than with a few big, spirits-barrel-aged creations or a juicy peach ale to conjure memories of the sunshine?”
