laurelwood brewing: hipster sunburn SAISON
Farmhouse Ales, like Hipster Sunburn here, were originally brewed to revitalize the farmhands after a long day working in the sun. While we think that's enough to proof this beer's warm-weathered drinkability, we'll also add that it's crisp and dry with tasty bread-dominant flavors and subtle fruitiness.
Fresh Louisiana peacjes are handpicked for this smooth lager, Pale malt gives the beer a sweet, crisp tast, with abundant amounts of ripe, juicy peaches added in the brewhouse to capture the falcors and aromas of real, fresh fruit. All our Harvest Series brews are made with the finest Louisiana-grown ingredients.
AVAILABILITY: Septemeber - December

WARLOCK is brewed to enchant you palate on its own and also to countepoint our Imperial Ale, Pumpking. Make your own black magic by carefully pouring this Imperial Stout into a goblet. Dark and mysterious, the Blackwater Series is a serious high gravity. Reanimate you senses with WARLOCK's huge roasted malt character, moderate carbonation and spicy pumpkin pie aroma.
AVAILABILITY: September - November
SUNRIVER BREWING CO. - RIPPIN NORTHWEST ALE
Amazing dank hop flavor of an IPA, but the easy drinking nature of a pale ale is the greatness behind this ambiguous brew. Hefty whirlpool additions of Citra, Mosaic, and Amarillo hops make this unique ale burst with ripe tropical fruit, freshly squeezed citrus and resinous pine. The finish is distinctly clean, crisp and hoppy, with a restrained bitterness.
NINKASI BREWING COMPANY - OKTOBERFEST (FESTBIER LAGER)
AVAILABLE - SEPT 2016-OCT 2016
To celebrate the harvest, NINKASI decided to brew a beer dedicated to the tradition of Oktoberfest. Using Oilsner malt and hops grown in the Northwest. Oktoberst has a slightly higher ABV than most Bavarian style lagers, followed by a more prolific aromatic hop profile. With a deeper cooper color, this lager has a toasty-malt flavor and a dry finish with earthy, grassy hop notes.
ASLAN BREWING CO. - BATCH 15 IPA
This hazy, juicy IPA is hopped heavily with Citra and Simcoe , then paired with choice American wheat and two-rw barley. Intentionally unfiltered to spotlight the rawness of organiz hops, this IPA is bitter but more flavorful and balanced than the most West coast version.
