Award Winning Sour

Gold Medal at the 2022 Oregon Beer Awards!

This gently tart, golden soured ale was fermented before being inoculated with our house lactobacillus culture. It is then aged in Reposado Tequila barrels before being blended with ample amounts of grapefruit puree, lime juice and zest. A dusting of Hawaiian sea salt was added to round out this Paloma-style cocktail sour. Hints of oak compliment delicate tequila and citrus notes, while gentle acidity and light salinity combine for a complex refreshing beer that resonates with beer and cocktail drinkers alike.

Label Fowl: The Hermit Warbler

Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife: “Hermit Warblers are endemic breeders in forests of the Pacific Northwest; they migrate to Central America (Mexico south to Costa Rica) during their non-breeding period. A new study at the Andrews Forest aims to document migration routes, locations, and migratory connectivity of Hermit Warbler populations. For instance, where will birds from the Andrews Forest, southern Washington, and the Sierras of California overwinter? For the Hermit Warbler, changing climate and habitat loss in the breeding grounds seem to drive population losses. The new study will help us understand whether climate and habitat on the wintering grounds have similar influences, and whether habitat quality on the breeding grounds influence migration behavior. Stretching our knowledge across seasons and over borders will help us make sound conservation strategies for the migratory Hermit Warbler.”
