Crux Brewdeck Release: Belgian Gale
(Bend,OR) – We hear quite a bit from guests visiting from out of town that they wish they could get some of our more experimental brews only available in our tasting room. So much so, we created the Brewdeck Release, a bi-monthly bottled release. Every couple of months we’ll make a special pick from the experimental brews available in the tasting room, bottle it up and distribute a mere 100 cases or so to fine craft retailers across the NW.
WHAT IS A BREWDECK RELEASE?
Straight from the Brewdeck to you, this rotating line-up of experimental, small-batch beers are a taste of what’s going on at the brewery right now.
WHAT IS THE FIRST BEER IN THIS NEW SERIES?
Belgian-Style Pale Ale
You might expect Belgian-style golden ales to clash with aggressively hopped American pale ales, with choppy results. But the Styrian Golding, Tettnang and Saaz hops in this beer produce grassy, peppery notes that complement the spicy, clove-like phenols created by the Belgian yeast. Like the North Sea gales across West Flanders, this toasty and aromatic ale smoothes out any rough terrain as it sweeps across your palate.
And anytime you’re in Bend, stop by the Tasting Room at 50 SW Division Street, Bend, Oregon 97702.
