Old Humbug II
(will return next October) This year’s holiday seasonal is a more traditional winter warmer and will be released in late October. If you recall, last year’s Old Humbug was a Strong Lager with a subtle star anise infusion. This year, Anders has created a very tasty, traditional British style winter warmer, utilizing an ale yeast strain instead of our usual house lager strain. Although this is a stylistic departure from our usual creations, you will not be disappointed. With generous amount of Castle Special B malted barley, which lends a hint of dark molasses flavor, and Challenger, Glacier, Newport and US Golding hop additions balancing the robust yet smooth malt profile, Old Humbug II comes in with a 8.2% Alcohol by volume (ABV) which will keep your tummy warm on those cold winter nights that are just around the corner. Limited quantities of this hand crafted gem are available For those of you who can’t make it to the Tap Room, Old Humbug II has found its way into select local and Portland area accounts but its disappearing quickly.
S.O.B. Barley Wine made its debut on Christmas Eve in the S.O.B. tasting room. This amazing Anders Johansen creation, aged in oak bourbon barrels, is a complex yet remarkably smooth libation that is lightly carbonated and will be presented at room temperature in
5 oz. brandy snifters. This very special offering will only be available in our tasting room until later this spring when it will be available in 22 oz bottles.
