Double Mountain Brewery Releases Pêche Cuvee & Devil’s Cuvee
The latest vintages of Pêche Cuvee and Devil’s Cuvee have been released by Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom. Bottles of the two beers are currently available at the downtown Hood River Taproom and SE Portland Taproom in the Woodstock neighborhood. As for wider distribution both Pêche Cuvee and Devils Cuvee will soon be available throughout the Northwest.
“If the other beers we make are our babies, these are our grandchildren,” stated Matt Coughlin, Double Mountain brewer, in a release. “We dote over them, coddle them, worry if they’re too warm or too cold, and give them all the attention when they come to town. And we think they’re pretty awesome.”
Here are details on each of the beers provided by Double Mountain Brewery.
Pêche Mode aged in oak barrels
This Belgian Style Ale is aged for nine months on local Hood River peaches, our special house yeast, and Brettanomyces. Then aged an additional year in French oak barrels.
8.7% ABV, 8 BU
Oak barrel aged Devil’s Kriek Belgian style sour ale with cherries
With this beer we pay homage to the traditions set before us, and welcome the future ahead. Each year, we tuck away a little Kriek in French oak barrels for further cellaring. For this release, we’ve selected the best barrels from our three years of stock to blend. The time in oak gave depth and wisdom and ripened the fruit, imparting sherry, raspberry, and dry red wine characters. 9.5% ABV, 12 BU
