Big Ass Beer Month Release #3 – Andes the Giant Wednesday, January 20th, 5pm-8pm
Guest brewer Dave Napack won a homebrewing competition with the PDX Home Brewers Club and was invited to make one of his homebrew recipes with the Green Dragon Brew Crew. Dave wanted to showcase a big, complex flavor and he collaborated with the crew to create Andes the Giant – an amazing, unconventional Belgian Dark Strong ale using Chilean Patagonia Especial Malt.
Andes the Giant is a malty behemoth which matches the beauty and power of the mountains it is named after. This is a wonderfully balanced and deceptively strong beer that showcases the delicate toffee and raisin notes of the especial barley grown and malted in the Chilean Patagonia. The flavor of the especial malt truly highlights the varietal purity, terroir, uniqueness, and traditions of barley malting in Chile.

Moose & Squirrel Russian Imperial Stout
Red Elephant IRA
Rando IPA – Shades of Amber
