You’re Invited to Meet the Brewer and the Beer – Phil’s Existential Alt
As a continuation of our 21st birthday celebrations, we are proud to announce the next beer in our line up of small batch Brewer’s Share draft beer series – Phil’s Existential Alt. To celebrate the release we invite you to “Meet the Brewer and the Beer” at our Tasting Room and Pub on Monday, September 15, from 5:00 to 7:00PM and at our Riverplace Brewery in Portland, on Tuesday, September 16th from 5:00 to 7:00PM.
This is a great way to give you a chance to meet the brewer who crafted the beer and gives the brewers a chance to show off their mad brewing skills. So come celebrate the existence of beer with us and raise a pint or two of Brewer’s Share Existential Alt with brewer Phil Roche.
Why Existential Alt, you ask? Well according to Phil, Altbier is indigenous to Dusseldorf and Neanderthal man is indigenous to Dusseldorf. The ancient Germans thought a lot about their existence. Early myths contain some 200 verses about the creation of the world. The ancient Germans thought even more about beer, with 400 verses about beer making. “Phil’s Existential Alt” celebrates our existence through our most celebrated beverage…beer!
A generous amount of Munich and Vienna malts give this beer its copper color and toasty-caramel aroma. German noble hops provide complimentary bitterness and a clean, dry finish. “Phil’s Existential Alt” has been cold-conditioned for six weeks and goes down smooth! Our Brewer’s Share beers are only available on tap at our Pubs in Hood River and Portland. (5.1% ABV 43 IBU) Cheers!
