Full Sail Releases New Brewer’s Share Experimental Beer, Bello-Torres y Amigos Lager for American Craft Beer Week
(Hood River, Oregon)– To celebrate American Craft Beer Week (May 13-19th), Full Sail Brewing will release a new beer in their Brewer’s Share Experimental line up: “Bello-Torres y Amigos Lager” crafted by Maintenance Supervisor Eduardo Bello and Bottling Technician Leo Torres.
Eduardo and Leo were inspired by the beers of their native country, Mexico and the fond memories of sharing cervezas with friends and family on hot summer afternoons. Both Eduardo and Leo have been valued members of the Full Sail crew for over 20 years and have since developed a passion for great beer and a deep respect for the art and science of brewing. “We are excited to have the opportunity to share our beer with you and invite you to fill your glasses and raise them with your own friends and family. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed brewing it. Cheers to good times with family and friends. Salud!”
This crisp, light bodied lager was brewed with 2 row pale malt and a touch of corn. NW Glacier and Sterling hops were used throughout to provide a subtle hop character. This is the perfect brew for the warm days of summer. ABV 5.0% IBU 21.5
Full Sail has scheduled a “Meet the Brewers and the Beer” event at their Tasting Room and Pub in Hood River, on Thursday, May 16th from 5:00 to 6:30PM. Join the Full Sail Crew to celebrate and toast a pint of this new brew.
With each Brewer’s Share series beer, Full Sail picks a local charity to receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the beer. Eduardo and Leo have chosen to support the Mid Columbia Community Action Council. Their mission is to alleviate the causes and conditions of poverty in Wasco, Hood River and Sherman Counties. Every keg of Eduardo and Leo’s crisp lager benefits this organization.
The Brewer’s Share series is a line-up of small batch draft beers where each Full Sailor takes a turn hand-crafting their own single batch recipe and a portion of the proceeds benefit a local charity of their choosing. Full Sail’s Brewer’s Share Experimental beers will only be available on tap at Full Sail’s Tasting Room and Pub in Hood River, Oregon, and at Full Sail’s Brewery at Riverplace, in Portland, Oregon. Growlers to go are available. The next Brewer’s Share Experimental will be crafted by brewer Francisco Martinez and is expected in July.
