PORTLAND, Ore. – October 21, 2021 – Von Ebert Brewing, winner of the 2021 Oregon Beer Awards’ Medium Size Brewery of the Year, will release three new beers from its Heritage Beer program on Saturday: Realm of Illusion, Flaming Glow, and Under the In Between.
With these releases, the brewery will also unveil a new look and style for the beers falling under its Heritage Beer program. Each Heritage Beer label will now prominently feature a photograph showcasing the farm where some of that specific beer’s ingredients, such as fruit or herbs, were grown. Most of these photographs will be taken by the farmer who planted and harvested the highlighted ingredient, with the label including a photo credit for the farmer.
“Local agriculture plays such an important role in our Heritage Beers,” explained Sam Pecoraro, Head Brewer, Von Ebert Brewing. “We wanted to use the labels of those beers to pay tribute to the farming partners who have helped us produce them, while also making that farming connection even more obvious to consumers.”
Realm of Illusion is a 6.4% ABV blend of puncheon-aged mixed-culture Heritage Beers that were refermented on marionberries from West Union Garden in Hillsboro, Oregon.
Flaming Glow is a blend of foudre-aged beers that were then refermented on two different nectarine varieties – Flaming Fury and Arctic Glow, both from Peachwood Orchard in Hood River, Oregon. The beer clocks in at 6.5% ABV.
Under the In Between is a 4.8% blend of foudre-aged and puncheon-aged mixed-culture Heritage Beers, further conditioned on Szechuan peppercorns with Yuzu zest and juice from the specialty citrus experts at Pearson Ranch in Porterville, CA.
“We’re really excited to release these three beers,” exclaimed Jason Hansen, lead brewer and blender, Von Ebert Glendoveer. “Our Heritage Beers are a labor of love. They require a lot of time and care, and also feature the beautiful agricultural bounty grown by our farm partners. The relationships with those farmers are a big part of what allows us to produce the complex, layered flavors of our Heritage Beers.”
All three of the new Heritage Beers will be available in bottles and limited draft at both the Von Ebert Glendoveer and Pearl brewpubs on Saturday.
