Our Saison is hopped with a specialty blend of Palisade, Simcoe, Lorel and Mosaic and was brewed by members of the Pink Boots Society to celebrate International Women’s Day.

2) Dubbel Vision (ABV 7.8% / IBU 25)

Our traditional Belgian-style Dubbel is malt forward and brewed with European Black Prinz malt, brown sugar and honey. Starting with aroma and flavor notes of ripe banana, this dark beer then finishes with a pleasant spicy sweetness and just a touch of alcohol warmth that hints at its 7.8% ABV.

3) Tripel Vision (ABV 9.99% / IBU 6)

Our Belgian Tripel adheres to traditional guidelines with its pale straw color from mostly pilsner malt and it’s high alcohol content. The aromas and flavors of peach nectar blend with characteristic Belgian yeast spiciness to make your lips sing!

This highly drinkable Brett spiked Belgian Dubbel was aged for 7 months in oak for a dry, warming alcohol finish with a nutty mellow funk.

Bale Breaker Brewing Company-Yakima

1) Nouvelle Abbeye Tripel IPA (ABV 8.5% / IBU 39)

Nouvelle Abbaye (French for New Abbey) is an interpretation of a classic Belgian Trappist ale. However, we dry hopped this beer with a generous amount of Citra—hence the term Tripel IPA.

2) Cocoa Butter Kisses Belgian Stout (ABV 7.2% / IBU 32)

Cocoa Butter Kisses is blend of American and Belgian styles. Roasted American malt fermented on Belgian Trappist yeast make this creation smooth as cocoa butter.

Black Raven Brewing-Redmond

1) Pour Les Oiseaux (ABV 6.8%)

White Wine Barrel Aged Saison. Pour Les Oiseaux is a blend of complex earthy, fruity, and light tannic flavors with a crisp and refreshing finish.  This ale is aged in French oak white wine barrels with the addition of brettanomyces.

2) La Mort Rouge (ABV 9.3%)

Red Wine Barrel Aged Belgian Strong Ale

La Mort Rouge is born from a marriage between La Petite Mort, our dark Belgian style strong ale, and red wine barrels from local vintners.  This ale is a limited vintage release.

3) sQuad of Ravens (ABV 10.6%)

This Belgian Quadrupel greets your nose with caramel and toast while brulee torched sugar and back molasses meet figs and dates.  Malt and dark stone fruit sweetness pervade the aftertaste.

Boundary Bay Brewery–Bellingham

1) Boundary Bay x North Fork Brewery = Collaboration Belgian Strong Amber Brut (ABV 8.7% / IBU 20)
When North Fork and Boundary Bay brew together it’s likely to get a bit crazy! With the final gravity falling below the density of water (0°P OG), this experimental Belgian-style ale is no exception. Meld in aromas of stonefruit and light cherry, flavors of biscuity and light chocolate maltiness and an extraordinarily dry, brandy-like finish, and you’ve got yourself a taste of madness!

2) Wonderland Belgian Strong Golden (ABV 8.2% / IBU 25)
Wonderland is approachable, powerful and an intricate Belgian strong golden ale with herbal, earthy and spicy notes. Hidden behind billowy lingering head awaits a wondrous and deceptively strong treasure with an artfully balanced body and complex yeast character

Cairn Brewing-Kenmore

1) Midnight Hike (ABV 10% / IBU 30)

Inspired by a trek in Yosemite under a full moon, this Belgian Dark Strong is inky black and strong as the granite that defines the National Park! The Trappist style dark strong presents dark cherries and raisin notes in the nose with rich and spicy ester notes on the tongue with a subtle rose taste. Enjoy your own Midnight Hike!

2) Winter Sunshine Saison (ABV 6.5% / IBU 25)

Bronze medal-winner in 2018 Washington Beer Awards. PNW winters make us dream of our lovely summers–and our Sunshine Saison will take you there, with a wintry twist! We infused our fan-fav Sunshine Saison with sour cherry for a tartness that perfectly matches the floral aroma and classic farmhouse taste on the back end. This clean, crisp and refreshing beer is the perfect way to bring sunshine to any day.

Elliott Bay Brewing-Burien

1) DE RODE DUIVELS (The Red Devils) (ABV 4.5%)

Sour Red Ale made up of a blend of beers aged in wine and bourbon barrels for 8 and 11 months. Hints of red wine with some vanilla sweetness from the bourbon barrels for balance.

2) ELEGAST’S STEED (ABV 5.7%)

A Belgian-style stout boasting aromas of chocolate, toffee, toast, stone fruit, plum, faint peppercorn and clove and named for a legendary elven king that rides a black steed.

3) DRY-HOPPED von BOORIAN (ABV 5.8%)

Out certified organic Belgian-stye IPA packed with some special dry hops added just for the Fest.

Elysian Brewing-Seattle

1) Belg-Frost (ABV 7.5% / IBU 25)

Constructed with the same grain bill as Bifröst, utilizing 2-row barley and Munich malt. The same varieties of hops–Magnum, Styrian Goldings, and Amarillo—were used as well, except the bitterness has been tamed, and late additions were bumped up to balance the very yeast forward character. This is Bifröst gone rustic. Free rise fermentation with Saison yeast yields an earthy spiciness, with notes of peppercorn and citrus zest.

2) Bête Blanche (ABV 8.4% ABV / IBU 36)

A twist on the French expression “Bête Noire”. Bête Blanche is extremely drinkable, blonde and somewhat treacherous. Brewed entirely from Pale malt and augmented in the boil with clear Belgian candy sugar. Bittered with German Northern Brewer and  finished with Styrian Goldings hops. Fermented with Belgian ale yeast.

Figurehead Brewing Company-Seattle

This beer is simple yet complex, easy drinking yet flavorful, straightforward yet endlessly interesting. This is truly a beer that appeals to every type of beer drinker. The monk’s lawnmower beer

2) C’est la Saison (w/ Jamaican Peppercorns) (ABV 7.0%)
A light malt bill and light hopping lets the spice notes in this winter saison take center stage.  We fermented this beer warmer to enhance the spiciness from the yeast and then added additional spice in the form of Jamaican peppercorns.

3) Whatever Floats Your Oats (Belgian Oatmeal Stout) (ABV 5.3%)
Created by our 2nd Beer Education Night class, this beer starts with a classic oatmeal stout profile but was then fermented with our Belgian strain to add additional complexity with notes of banana and spice.
4) Midwhat?!? (dark ale w/ Muscat grape must) (ABV 10%) – First Session Only

Belgian Fest experiment #1. We took the wort from our GABF gold medal winning Midwatch Belgian-style dark strong, fermented it with champagne yeast, and then added Muscat grape must. Only 5 gallons of this beer so stop by early.

5) Midwho?!? (barrel aged saison w/ cherries) (ABV 9%) – Second Session Only
Belgian Fest experiment #2. We took the wort from our GABF gold medal winning Midwatch Belgian-style dark strong, fermented it with a saison yeast, then aged it in a whiskey barrel with a crap ton of cherries. Only 5 gallons of this beer so stop by early.

Kettle Sour Cherry Saison

Flying Lion Brewing-Seattle

1) Belgian Quaddamnit (ABV 13.5 %)

This once-per-year brew is strong and complex.  The malt-heavy body is laced with intense notes of clove, banana, and dried fruit.  In other words, superextrafruitytastesokindsof spicydoses!

2) Belgian Stout (ABV 7.0%)

Heavily roasted with flavors of dried fruit and licorice, this dark and complex Belgian-style Stout pairs well with long winter nights! The carefully chosen grain bill plays out well with a Belgian yeast strain normally reserved for Pales and Wits.

3) Belgian Strong (ABV 9.0%)

The Belgian Strong has a slightly hazy appearance and is light in color. The Strong’s flavor is a complex blend of the fruity esters provided by the yeast with subtle additions of Coriander, Ginger, and Grains of Paradise. The high ABV is perfectly masked in this extraordinarily smooth beer!

A clean malt profile shows off Continental hops and a spicy phenolic flavor from Belgian yeast. Some fruity esters and residual sweetness keep the high alcohol level from overwhelming this beer.

2) Cabaret Sauvage, Ale with Wine Grapes (ABV 7.8%)

A hybrid wine-ale, we re-fermented a dark ale base in oak puncheons for 14 months with whole, fresh Cabernet Sauvignon wine grapes from the Yakima Valley. Enticingly burgundy-hued, with a complex, vinous aroma, it expresses raisin, fruit-skin-spice, port-like, oaky, and floral flavors, culminating in a delightfully dry and clean finish.

3) Voyageur, Two-Year Double Pale Ale (ABV 7.7%)

In 2016 we barreled a freshly brewed double pale ale, and sent it on a (figurative) voyage in oak vessels. After a 2 ½ year trip, the body gained tartness and acidity that complements the citrusy hop, becoming even more aromatic and flavorful with notes of oak, vanilla, sugarcane, dried stone fruit, and whiskey-like caramel.

4) Sombre 2018, Abbey-style Quadrupel (ABV 11.4%)

Aged in oak wine and brandy barrels for over a year and emerging dark and robust, this “double Dubbel,” opens with a lightly spirituous aromatic note, proceeds to dark caramel, bittersweet chocolate, wood, and spice flavors, and finishes each sip with gentle alcoholic warmth.

5) Gyrophare [1st Session], Tart Cherry Saison (ABV 6.2%)

We loaded whole, fresh Washington Montmorency tart cherries into oak wine barrels and extracted all the sweet and sour goodness through a second fermentation on our rustic wheat and barley ale base.  It is aromatic, colored rosé red, and spins through 360° of flavor from the cherries (fruit, skin, and pit), finishing with a balanced and lightly sour touch.

6) Prunette [2nd Session], Plum Saison (ABV 6.0%)

Whole, fresh Washington plums (Italian prunes) aged with our saison base in oak barrels for 1 full year creates a uniquely flavorful ale with plum fruit and skin in the aroma, and a sweet-tart flavor which fades to a gently oaky, funky, tart-fruity aftertaste.

2) Ennui Belgian Pale Ale (ABV 6.19% / IBU 43)

n. [än’we]: a feeling of listlessness and dissatisfaction arising from a lack of occupation or excitement. Brewing can be slow moving sometimes. So we make sure to make our beers as interesting as possible. A light and citrusy Belgo-American Pale in the middle of winter, featuring a hearty dose of Sterling and Citra Hops. More importantly, it comes with a difficult name! Welcome to the Ennui.

3) Method Acting Belgian Tripel (ABV 9% / IBU 15)
n. [ˈmeTHəd · aktiNG]: A technique of acting in which an actor aspires to complete emotional identification with a part. We went to the extreme to make this effervescent, light Belgian style with flavors of bubble gum, banana, vanilla and clove. We only spoke in dutch during the brew, ate a lot of waffles and chocolate, and celebrated Sinterklaas. Can you taste the passion?
