Making its return for the third consecutive year is 2019 Dream State, a foeder aged ale with strawberries from Little Beast Brewing. This fruit forward, foeder-aged ale with strawberries will be the first beer that Little Beast will be able to offer a vertical tasting of when the 2019 Dream State is released beginning at Noon on Saturday, February 29th at the Little Beast Brewing Beer Garden in SE Portland.
2019 Dream State is fermented with seven distinct microflora, aged for more than six months in a Cabernet Sauvignon foeder, and packed to the brim with 100 lbs of fresh, whole Oregon strawberries per barrel. The beer has a full, lush fruit flavor, soft acidity, a funky quality from Brettanomyces, and a complex depth of character.
To make Saturday a bit more special, Little Beast has a cellared beer menu at their Beer Garden containing the 2017 and 2018 vintages of Dream State. Guests will be able to order a three-year vertical on site or to go. If you order the vertical, you’ll receive a 5% discount. Plus, members of the Guardians of Funk bottle club will receive an additional 10% off the price of a vertical.
With only 88 cases produced, 2019 Dream State will live up to the brewery’s tag line of Rare Beer. After the release event, the beer will make its way into Little Beast’s distribution footprint in Oregon, Washington, and California on draft and in limited 375mL bottles.
