Beardslee Public House in Bothell, WA is releasing three beers this month to commemorate its third anniversary: a cherry sour, an IPA, and a barrel-soured Dubbel. Stop by the pub this month and check them out. Here are the beer descriptions from the brewery, along with some other news.
- The Cherry Sour Ale is back for its annual release. A kettle sour (3.32ph) ale flavored with sour tart cherries, 305 lbs of them in an 8.5 barrel batch, and a touch of Australian fruity Nelson Sauvin hops. This uber popular beer will be available until the end of August (if we are lucky). 17 IBU, 5.3% ABV
- Make Me Hoppy IPA, another Beardslee favorite, also returns. This time, a 20 bbl batch was brewed so it may last twice as long as last time (hopefully 6 weeks). This brew is a double India Pale Ale featuring Galaxy and Mosaic Hops, and the first beer from Beardslee using Cryo Hops (or hop kief – only the resinous glands of the hop cones ). 65 IBU, 7.6% ABV
- The Barrel Soured Dubbel Cut Saw is a Belgian Style Dubbel that is a blend of 2 aged barrels and a touch of our fresh Grappel Belgian Tripel Ale. A 2-year-old Mark Ryan Winery Merlot barrel full of our 2016 batch inoculated with Belgian Roeselare Yeast, 5 labs of mission figs and 3 lbs of golden raisins, was blended with a 1-year-old Makers Mark Bourbon barrel of our 2017 batch that was inoculated with lactobacillus. To round it out, a small percentage of this summer’s Grappel Tripel was blended in. Aromas of biscuits, crackers, sawdust, and tart fruit greet the nose while flavors of fig, apricot, sweet toffee and ethanol coat one’s mouth producing a long lingering finish. IBU: 20; ABV: 7.8% PH: 3.85
