On Saturday, April 11th, The Commons Brewery will be releasing it’s first bottles at its brand new tasting room and brewery beginning when the tasting room opens at Noon. This will be a great opportunity to visit the new location in Southeast Portland.
This bottle release will be for Maybelle, farmhouse ale aged in white wine barrels with Brettanomyces. Brewed in August 2013 at its former brewery and initially fermented with the house farmhouse ale strain, Maybelle then spent 14 months in Adelsheim Vineyard white wine barrels with Brewing Science Institute Brettanomyces Bruxellensis variant Drei. The resulting beer is dry, with a soft acidity and complex brettanomyces aromatics. The flavors in this beer will continue to develop with cellar time.
Maybelle is part of the Beetje Series and will be available in 750ml capped bottles for $10 per bottle and will be available on draft in limited quantities the weekend of the release. The beautiful label art was once again created by Adam Burke, brother of Head Brewer Sean Burke.
The Beetje Series is a celebration of The Commons Brewery’s nano roots. First brewed in 2010 on a one-barrel system in Mike Wright’s garage, these small batch beers pay homage to the rustic brewery that continues to inspire us.
The Commons Brewery opened in December 2011 and crafts small batch, approachable and balanced beers inspired by European brewing tradition and Northwest-grown ingredients. The new tasting room hours are Tuesday through Sunday, Noon to 10:00pm.
