As draft beer continues to take a hit as restaurants remain closed, Von Ebert Brewing will release two new hop forward beers to its lineup of cans. Beginning tomorrow, Von Ebert will have fresh 16oz. cans of Wolf Summoner and Axe to Grind. Joining the canning run of these two beers are Volatile Substance, Sabrage, and Sector 7.
“With the limitations and precautions people are taking in their everyday lives, we felt like we should do something a little special for this canning,” said Sam Pecoraro, head brewer, Von Ebert Pearl, in a statement. “People can’t physically visit their favorite restaurants or bars, but they can still enjoy their favorite beers at home. With that in mind, we decided to make more beers available than usual for this canning, including two customer favorites, Wolf Summoner and Axe to Grind, hitting cans for the first time.”
Here’s a rundown on descriptions of all five beers provided by
Wolf Summoner is an American IPA with Rakau, Galaxy, and El Dorado hops that give it notes of tropical fruit. The 6.4% ABV and 79 IBU IPA has previously been brewed as a taproom draft exclusive.
Axe to Grind is a 5.8% ABV 46 IBU American pale ale brewed with Chinook, Citra, Amarillo, and El Dorado hops. The beer delivers flavors of orange and stonefruit and is often available on tap during the Major League Soccer season. Axe to Grind was originally brewed for fans of Portland’s MLS soccer club, the Portland Timbers.
Volatile Substance, the 6.9% IPA that won a gold medal at the 2019 North American Beer Awards and was named Oregon IPA of the year by The Oregonian.
Sabrage, the 7.0% dry IPA containing Chinook, Citra, and Nelson hops producing effervescent, citrus, and dank notes.
Sector 7, the fan favorite 7.0% hazy IPA with Citra, Simcoe, and Idaho 7 hops.
All five hop forward beers will be available tomorrow, Wednesday, April 15th, at both Von Ebert locations – Glendoveer and the Pearl – for to-go or delivery order.
Then later this week Von Ebert Brewing will release Blameless Muse, a new bottled Heritage Beer. Blameless Muse is a foraged farmhouse ale collaboration with Ordnance Brewing that features Mecca Grade Estate Malt, yarrow flowers, grand fir boughs, ponderosa pine needles and Brettanomyces. Look for Blameless Muse available on Friday, April 17th,
