Part of the Kells empire of Irish themed pubs, Kells Brew Pub, will celebrate their 2nd year of brewing all day long on Friday, August 15th. Last year Kells Brew Pub was voted the winner of KGW’s Best in Town Brew Pub.
To assist in ringing in their 2nd year of brewing Kells Brew Pub will be offering two special beer tappings beginning at 6:00pm on Friday. The pub will also have live music starting at 9pm.
Here are descriptions of the two beers.
Kells Barrel Aged Red
The brewers took their Kells Irish Red Ale and barrel aged it for many months in Bull Run Distillery whiskey barrels. Honey and vanilla notes of whiskey dance in your mouth with the light toffee and red fruits of the ale. 5% ABV
Billy Ray Citrus CDSL
Billy Ray Citrus merges the dark roasty richness of a stout with the smooth, easy taste of a session lager. Two-row, caramel, carafa II (dehusked black malt) and Vienna malts are balanced by Northern Brewer, Hallertauer, Mt. Hood and Saaz hops, a great blend of the traditional European noble hops with the freshness of the Northwest. Fermented with lager yeast at room temperature gives this beer its fruity esters and a mild green-apple aroma.
