AnniBREW Cubed: Beer List Part 2

Here are a few more descriptions of the beers that will be at our 3rd anniversary on July 31st.

Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza is brewed in the Franco-Belgian tradition of strong golden ales.  It’s spicy and peppery with  a gentle hop bouquet and the beguiling influence of wild yeast.  Aged in Oak barrels.  8% ABV

Full Sail ’09 Black Gold was initially brewed in February 2008 and released as their Imperial Stout.  Full Sail ages a portion in Bourbon casks and releases it a year later as Black Gold. We held onto this for an additional year.  Chocolate and caramel nuances blend with the hops for a smooth flavor.  10.5% ABV

Allagash ’08 Curieux is their Belgian Tripel aged in Jim Beam barrels for eight weeks.  The beer picks up soft coconut and vanilla characteristics…and also a hint of bourbon flavor.  We had this at our first anniversary and then held onto an additional keg.  11% ABV

New Holland Dragon’s Milk has a soft, rich caramel malt flavor intermingled with deep vanilla tones swimming in an oak bath.  New Holland brought this beer to OBF a couple years back; I’m guessing there are a couple of people who wouldn’t mind trying it again.  10% ABV

Deschutes Twilight is a lighter, but full flavored summer ale with a balanced malt profile and a harmonious blend of 4 hops. Aged for 6 weeks in Oregon Pinot Noir barrels and dry hopped with Liberty to create a distinctive citrus finish. 5% ABV

Have a few more beers lined up, but waiting for them to arrive and a little more info about them.  Expect one more writeup with beers from Hair of the Dog, Caldera, Lagunitas, Block 15, and Cascade.

  1. Here it lists Hopworks’ Bourbon Kronan the Barbarian but the main list shows Hopworks’ For Those About To Bock. Which will be at the festival?

  2. Arguably, THE event of the month.
    Been looking forward to this for a while.
    Saturday afternoon should prove interesting…
