Sahatie - Mixed Fermentation Ale ~ 9-10% ABV

She spends over 1 year in our oak barrels during a long, relaxed fermentation prior to a month-long dry-hopping (yes, in oak barrels!). ?Our sensory experience is a tropical & citrus fruit nose of apricots, pineapple, and orange produced from yeast esters and hop oils. The palate is tart and pithy, combining earthy and herbal undertones that evolve as the beer warms & opens up within your glass.

La Tache - Mixed Fermentation Ale ~ 7-8% ABV
The Beer Formerly Known as LA TACHE is the table sour produced year-round by The Ale Apothecary. (TBFKA) LA TACHE is made of malted barley & wheat and Goschie Farms Cascade Hops. The hops are used only for aroma as the balance of the beer comes from acid produced by our house lactobacillus culture. She spends up to one year in our barrels during a long, relaxed fermentation prior to a month-long dry-hopping (yes, in oak barrels!). Our sensory experience is lemon citrus & fermented orchard fruit nose over earthy undertones. The palate finishes with soft lactic acid balanced by the malt body.

NE 22nd Way, Vancouver, WA 98684

With over 25 years of combined brewing experience, Sam and Don set out to produce high quality beer that is consistent in flavor for a refreshing drinking experience. They soon found that many people preferred beer that is lower in bitterness than many wildly hopped local brews. Consequently, their beers are more mildly hopped than many Northwest craft beers. Moderate alcohol content and lower carbonation provide a more pleasant gastric experience. This means you can expect great craft beer flavor that can be enjoyed again and again with your friends.

Ethereal Meads is deeply rooted in the honeys and fruits of the Pacific Northwest. "Ethereal" is our best word to describe the mood of a misty, mossy old-growth forest near our home. It is here we find the inspiration for our interpretations of the fantastic beverage that is mead! Each of our meads is named for a forest mood or creature. Our meadmaster, Gary Gross, found that over many years, practically every time he served his mead, someone would say "you should sell this!" After taking a gold medal on his first try at the largest mead competition in the world, he decided to abandon any thought of doing anything but pursuing his passion; to make great mead and to promote mead as a wonderful beverage that deserves to be much more well-known. A chemical engineer and lifelong singer, he sees mead making as the perfect marriage of science and art. "Making mead professionally is crazy fun," he says.

The Journey for Pono Brewing began back in 2011 when Larry missed working for a brewery and the freedom of expression that comes in the beer industry. He set out to grow a brewery from the ground up that used his past experience brewing for Pusch Ridge Brewing Company out of Tucson, AZ and his time spent traveling abroad in the Pacific Islands and SE Asia. Pono Brewing was born when he set out to use ingredients from the South Pacific to put interesting twists on craft beer styles. Larry met Josh at an event where both of them were pouring their beer. Larry had a beer called Okole Maluna which means “Bottoms Up” in Hawaiian that had Pineapple, Coconut and Taro Root in it and it tasted like a Pina Colada that was a beer. Josh was pouring his Pineapple Express recipe which is a pineapple Kolsch. When the two of them tried each other’s beers, they knew they had to partner together. Along the journey, Larry met Erick through a mutual friend that insisted they meet because they were very similar and would get along well. I guess their mutual friend was right because Erick quickly became part of the group making Pono Brewing a trio. The 3 Amigos decided that it was time to go pro when home brewing awards and awards from partnering with breweries came in. The journey has been 5 years in the making with the road full of bumps, pot holes, curves and bends but luckily there wasn’t any dead ends. Look for their beers coming to you in 2016! Follow their journey along the way.

Fire Cirkl produces unique products, resurrecting brewing traditions from antiquity, around the world, one recipe at a time. All of our recipes have a story and cultural history behind the ingredients they contain. All of our recipes are our own creations. We are among those pioneering the use of herbs other than hops. Unlike hops, there are no published numbers to reference for hitting one's targets. One must invent, experiment, and draw on one's gut and experience. Our recipes are not a result of archeological finds, for example, but rather created from research done on the brewing habits of a particular culture and era. We research a colorful culture and their brewing habits, then create a recipe that captures the essence of that culture, adapting it to appeal to the modern palate. Hence our tagline, "Olde recipes with a modern twist."

My journey to Boring Brewing started 24 years ago when I began my ventures in Homebrewing. I read everything related to brewing I could get my hands on. Some would say I was obsessed. I always wanted to open a brewpub or brewery but it was always a dream for me. The stars seemed to align this last year and it looked like it was possible to open a brewery in a accessory building on my property. After jumping through mounds of paperwork, I finally became licensed to brew beer on a commercial level. This is where I bring you Boring Brewing - a Nano Brewery that is focused on quality. Our beers spend the correct amount of time in the fermenter followed by a cold age in a bright beer tank where optimal carbonation and flavor is obtained prior to making it to your pint glass. Look for our beers at the best establishments.

Ambacht Ales are unique, even here in the Pacific Northwest where brewing is an art. Our handcrafted ales are Belgian inspired and influenced by the bounty of our region. Ambacht ales are made using local, organically grown ingredients. Our flavors are balanced, not too hoppy or sweet, brewed with Willamette Valley grown hops. Ambacht ales are mashed at a low temperature, giving them a refreshing dryness, and have a clean, toasty flavor from our organic malts. All of our ales are naturally carbonated by bottle conditioning with Pacific Northwest honey, which gives them a sweet finish. But perhaps the most important ingredient in our ales is time: it takes about three months from brew day until our ales are ready for you to enjoy!
