This coming weekend will be a big one for Alesong Brewing & Blending as it releases its five new Fall 2023 Beer Releases and winds down its operations at its Alesong on 5th taproom.

Beginning on Friday, November 10th, Alesong Brewing & Blending will release five new barrel-aged beers at its two tasting rooms and across the Pacific Northwest.  This release features new versions of some Alesong fan-favorites as well as a three brand-new beers! The lineup of its Fall 2023 Releases includes French 75, Terroir Project, Rhino Suit, Island Rhino Suit, and its member exclusive, Warm Woolen Mittens.

Here’s a rundown on the five new beers.

French 75
Inspired by the cocktail of the same name, we took a dry, French-style saison fermented with brettanomyces, aged it in Old Tom gin barrels from Oregon-local Ransom Spirits and then conditioned it on heaps of fresh lemon zest, creating a crisp and citrusy beverage with a complex medley of herbal notes from Ransom’s unique botanical blend.

Terroir Project
On this collaboration Alesong is showcasing the wonderful fruit and native microflora from Walnut Ridge Vineyard, just up the road near Junction City. This beer made its debut this past weekend at the Terroir Festival in Arizona!

Rhino Suit
Aged in 100% George Dickel 14 year bourbon barrels, adding delicious notes of bourbon, vanilla, and oak.

Island Rhino Suit
Aged in freshly emptied rum barrels straight from Barbados before receiving a hefty dosing of coconut at packaging, to complete the island vibes.

Warm Woolen Mittens (member exclusive)
Its latest wine grape co-ferment and showcases some really lovely Merlot from Weinbau Vineyard in the Columbia Valley AVA of Southern Washington against the backdrop of a blend of mixed culture farmhouse ales from our cellar. Yes, we know the next line in the song is “bright copper kettles,” but we’ve got that name saved for another special project!

Alesong will host a release party for Blender’s Circle members at its country brewery the weekend of November 10-12 and the beers will be available for all at Alesong’s downtown tasting room beginning Friday November 10th. Rhino Suit and Island Rhino Suit will also be available at retailers throughout the Pacific Northwest.
