EUGENE, Oregon – Eugene, Oregon’s barrel enthusiasts at Alesong Brewing & Blending are releasing four new late winter oak-aged treats in bottles on February 11th. The beers include two clean bourbon barrel-aged and malt forward strong ales, and two fruit forward tart mixed culture ales, one of which is a recent GABF gold medal winner.
Headlining the four new beers is a fresh out of the barrel new vintage of Stonefruit Symphony, a beer that won the GOLD in the Belgian Fruit Beer category at the 2021 Great American Beer Festival® (GABF). Additional new beers making their debut include a malt-forward scotch ale and a coffee-infused Belgian dark strong ale, both aged in bourbon barrels, and a brilliant fruit beer highlighting exquisite raspberries from King Estate’s biodynamic gardens. The new beers are as follows:
Stonefruit Symphony — Hot on the heels of winning a GOLD medal at GABF, this year’s vintage is juicy and refreshing from NW-grown peaches and nectarines! (Full Distribution)
Framboise — Made with fresh King Estate raspberries and aged in our newest French oak foeder, this tart stunner is full of jammy fruit aromas and flavors! (Club & Tasting Room Only)
Kentucky Kilt — Rich and malt-forward, this bourbon barrel-aged scotch ale was given a boost with vanilla beans and is dangerously drinkable! (Full Distribution)
Koffie — Aged in bourbon barrels and finished on whole, locally-roasted coffee beans, this Belgian dark strong ale is the perfect choice for dark winter days! (Club Only)
Stonefruit Symphony and Kentucky Kilt will both be available at retailers throughout the Pacific Northwest beginning mid-February, while our raspberry offering, Framboise, and coffee bean infused Koffie will only be available at the tasting rooms and to Blender’s Circle bottle club members respectively.
