Bison Organic Beer & Logsdon Farmhouse Ales Collaboration Release & Meet the Brewmasters @ Bridgetown Beerhouse
November 30, 2012 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Bison and Logsdon to debut first-ever 100% organic collaboration beer at Portland’s Holiday Ale Festival and meet the brewers tasting event at Bridgetown Beerhouse.
Berkeley, CA Further proving that organic beer can be just as, if not more, innovative, dynamic and exciting as its conventional counterpart, the award-winning brewmasters of Logsdon Farmhouse Ales and Bison Organic Beer have teamed up to create one of the most unique collaboration beers yet – Cocoa Bretta.
The first-ever 100% organic collaboration beer, Cocoa Bretta is a hybrid blend of Bison’s award-winning Chocolate Stout and Logsdon’s award-winning Seizoen Bretta. This stout-based collaboration beer was brewed with organic Peruvian cocoa, a blend of six organic malts, organic roasted barley and organic oats. It was fermented using multiple yeast strains, and then finished with Logsdon’s proprietary strains of Brettanoymces and keg conditioned with pear juice.
“Cocoa Bretta was our first collaboration beer,” states David Logsdon, Director and Head Brewer at Logsdon Farmhouse Ales. “It is hard to predict how a first attempt might turn out, but in my opinion we have created a unique and very flavorful version of Bison’s award-winning beer.”
Pitch-black with a garnet hue and thick, creamy beige head, Cocoa Bretta exudes a complex aroma profile, boasting notes of chocolate, roasted grains, toffee, caramel and fruit. Dark malt and cocoa flavors combine for a rich, yet medium-bodied and well-rounded beer. Chewy malts linger as cocoa glides across the palate, leaving behind a crisp, fruity and oh-so-mouthwatering finish.
“David is a genius with yeast,” notes Dan Del Grande, Owner and Brewmaster at Bison Organic Beer. “Logsdon’s proprietary yeast strains brought a new level of complexity to my Chocolate Stout recipe that I never imagined possible. It was an honor to partner with the Logsdon team on this truly unique, 100% organic collaboration beer.”
The first-ever organic collaboration beer, Cocoa Bretta is a hybrid blend of Bison’s award-winning Chocolate Stout and Logsdon’s award-winning Seizoen Bretta.
Join brewmasters Dan (Bison) and David (Logsdon) at Bridgetown Beerhouse this Friday for the rare opportunity to taste the Cocoa Bretta collaboration beer side by side with the Bison’s Chocolate Stout and Logsdon’s Seizon Bretta. Bison’s popular seasonal, Gingerbread Ale, will also be on tap!
Official event takes place from 5-7pm. See you there!
