Logsdon Far West Fleming – This red ale is brewed in traditional West Flanders style. A combination of light, crystal, and dark barley malt, wheat, and oats are brewed with local whole-cone hops and variety of select yeast and lactic bacteria. We age our red ale in oak barrels for a period of time to develop complex richness, soft tannins, and fruity tart character.The ages beer is then blended with young beer to create the desired balance of malt sweetness with a dry finish.
Logsdon Cerasus (bottle pour)- Organic kriek beer, a barrel-aged Flanders style red ale with two pounds of fruit added per gallon of beer. We added both sweet and tart Oregon cherries during the aging process with a combination of several yeast strains and lactic bacteria to develop a secondary fermentation. The crystal malts, oak tannins, and fruit develope into a soft well rounded beer of Burgundian character.
Logsdon Aberrant – Chuck Porter’s new beer. Golden ale brewed Mt. Hood spring water, Pilsner malt, Liberty hops, pure can sugar, and made extra special with a unique strain of yeast.
Solera The Fez – Sour Farmhouse Ale, 4.2% ABV, 12 IBU. The Fez is a blend of 3 different farmhouse ales containing multiple yeast strains and lactic acid bacteria, barley, oats, wheat and corn. Light and refreshing with addictive qualities.
Solera French Tickler – Grisette-Style Ale, 4.0% ABV, 20 IBU. As Saison was considered the drink of farm workers, Grisette was the brew of the miners. Brewed with pilsner and wheat malts, hopped with Mt. Hoods. A simple, clean and bone dry French session beer.
