Bailey's Taproom,213 SW Broadway,Portland
This years annual Barrel Aged BeerFest will be on Saturday, August 3rd starting at 2pm. It will not include a souvenir glass and will be general admission, just buying individual four ounce pours. We will be doing a VIP After Party on Sunday, August 4th that will be held in our new space above the bar (known to some as The Upper Lip).
10 Barrel Ransom Imperial Stout- We created a robust stout that delivers flavor that flows throughout the beer. We used flaked barley, brown, biscuit, aromatic, along with some dark malts to create a multi layered malt bill. This is complemented by the hop charge of Magnum and Fuggle. All this is brought together by the aging of the beer in whiskey barrels from Ransom distillery. 9% 75 IBUs
Block 15 Illusions with fresh tart cherries (pin) – Illusions is our new black sour/wild ale matured in 1st & 2nd run bourbon barrels for 18 months. 8.5% ABV.
Breakside Bjork and Poetry – Aquavit Barrel-Aged Braggot. Strong honey ale fermented in stainless steel and then aged in Krogstad Aquavit barrels from House Spirits. 9.2% 39IBUs
The Commons Emilie – Sour brown ale aged in Pinot Noir barrels with Roselare blend and house grown cultures. This is going to be our next specialty bottle release sometime in August. Soft barrel notes, some malt character, complex acids, very balanced. 6.5%
Crux Fermentation Project Tough Love – Bold but nuanced, an homage of sorts to the traditional Russian Imperial Stouts and the ruling style of Catherine the Great. We Construct it with dark, roasted malts, malted rye, and oak-smoked wheat, and then banished it for nine months in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. The aging smooths out the edges on an otherwise bold statement, and bitterness succumbs to tender strokes of vanilla beans, hints of dried cherries, and new layers revealing themselves with each sip.11.5%
Flat Tail Lemon Diesel – A blend of our Little Green Session Dry Hopped Saison, and a 2 year old barrel of Corvaller Weisse that, through the miracle of wild yeast, tasted just like lemon juice! Super bright and citrusy, with notes of guava and tomato vine from mosaic hops, and a crisp , sour, thirst quenching finish. 4.2%
Fort George ‘12 The Three Wisemen – The Three Wisemen honor the holiday tradition of gifting: in this case, gifting your liver an Imperial oatmeal stout that has been lovingly conditioned in Bourbon, Tequila and Rum barrels, then brought back together to form a wonderfully warming, cunningly complex and graciously gratifying Yuletide elixir. 9.9%
Laurelwood Cardinal Sin – A carefully crafted blend of continental malts, spicy and earthy hops, and an Abbey-style yeast that results in a balanced beer with creamy malt textures and a big deep fruit aroma and flavor. We then added barrel aged amber ale that has been sitting on fresh cherries for several years, resulting in a sweet, tart, dark fruity beer. This particular version of the beer has had additional aging time in sour barrels. 10%
Ninkasi Raspberry Oatis – A rich, complex oatmeal stout with just enough hops to balance the copious quantities of dark roasted malts. With the addition of oatmeal for creamy smooth drinkability and a subtle raspberry bouquet up front, this beer delivers a richly-reﬁned oak ﬁnish. For a deliciously sweet take on our year-round favorite, we aged Oatis Oatmeal Stout for ten months in Heaven Hills bourbon barrels, adding Oregon and Washington raspberries in the last two months. 7.2% 50IBUs
Oakshire Funk d’Farmhouse – Save the Farmhouse is our annual creation made for the North American Organic Brewers Fest. In 2012 we fermented a portion with a special blend of yeast and organisms and aged it for a year in Oregon Pinot Noir Barrels. After careful blending, the result is a rustic ale with pleasant fruity aromas and funky undertones. The mild acidity on the finish is a refreshing end and should continue to develop over time. Embrace the Funk! 6.6%
Upright Bailey’s Sixth Anniversary Beer – Single cask Six aged in a pinot barrel we’ve had since the very beginning. It was originally inoculated with brett lambicus and has had various fruits added like currants and cherries, so there’s a distinct fruity undertone. This batch was in there for over 14 months. 7%
