Redmond, WA – Folks in the Eastside are living high off hops these days, ever since Black Raven moved into town. Already this small brewery has won recognition at the Washington Beer Commission’s Winterfest, Beveridge Place Pub’s Hoptoberfest (pub goers vote for their future house IPA), and many other events. So its no surprise that they are once again announcing a couple of beers to log into your olfactory library.
About the Beers, Bourbon Barrel Aged Trickster IPA & Pour Le Oiseaux
Bourbon Barrel Aged Trickster IPA, Release date: Friday 1/22
The Bourbon Barrel Aged Trickster IPA is the latest seasonal release from Black Raven Brewing. A rare bird indeed, only a few kegs exist. This is our wildly popular Trickster IPA that has been hanging out a bit in a bourbon barrel. Based on our preview recently at the Beverage Place Pub Black Raven Brewer's night, this one will go fast! Sorry, no growlers or kegs to go.–source, Black Raven’s Newsletter
Pour Les Oiseaux Release date: Tuesday 1/26
Brewed in a traditonal Saison/Farmhouse style with four grains (Barley, Wheat, Oats, and Rye) and Styrian Golding hops. After primary fermentation, the beer was then racked into four French oak white wine barrels. Two of the barrels were previously used for Viognier and the other two were used for Chardonnay. After months of aging, the four barrels were blended together into what is now "Pour Les Oiseaux". This beer was previewed at Brouwer's Cafe Big Wood festival last month and received great reviews. Sorry, no growlers or kegs to go. –source, Black Raven’s Newsletter
