The first release from Calapooia Brewing’s Wine Barrel-Aged Series will be released on Thursday, January 7, in Portland at Chill N Fill. The debut of this new barrel-age beer, Kildirkin Vol. 1 will take place beginning at 7:00pm.
Deriving its name from a small barrel, Kildirkin Vol 1 is Calapooia Brewing’s winter warmer that has been aged in red wine barrels for three months. Chocolate and Dark Crystal malt were used with a hint of Roasted malt & licorice root. The hops used were Apollo, Cascade, and Golding. Kildirkin Vol 1 comes in at 7% ABV and 60 IBU.
Chill N Fill will also be pouring the following selections from Calapooia:
Undertow Imperial Stout
A maelstrom of a beer! Over 1000 pounds of malt, including C-120, Chocolate, Black and Roasted plus 38 pounds of Willamette hops per 7.5 barrel batch create a perfect storm of maltiness and bitter balance. 9.5 abv 50 IBU.
Paddle Me IPA
An IPA-Lovers IPA! Big Marris Otter Pale imported malts, big hops using exclusive and proprietary Simcoe Hops for a pungent, front-of-palate grapefruity flavor and aroma. Nugget and Centennial hops provide mid-range and back-end bitterness. 6.8 abv 72 IBU.
River Dog ESB
A true gem-rich in color and taste; heavily hopped, but so smooth that even non-hop-heads love this beer! Cascade and Willamette hope. 5.5 abv 40 IBU
Check it out Thursday at Chill N Fill while mingling with the brewer until 9:00pm.
