Press Release

... Portland, OR - The 4th annual Peche Fest at Saraveza and The Bad Habit Room today announces the peachy beer list of the region's only Peach dedicated Beer Fest on Saturday, October 8th, 2016. With 25 rare beers, including a hard cidr, the taplist is as fuzzy and juicy as ever and represents the best of what Oregon has to offer with great beers from Washington and Colorado rounding out the lineup. The Peche Fest also marks the official re-opening of Saraveza, North Portland's beer bar and pasty tavern which has been recently closed for kitchen renovations and a pub refresh. 

In addition to the 24 rare beers and one Cider listed below, Saraveza will have a special peach infused food menu of savory and sweet treats available from 3 - 10pm.


Almanac Beer: Peach de BrettavillePeach de Brettaville is a harmonious marriage of fruit and beer, bringing together our love for brett saisons and farm fresh fruit. We brewed our Saison Dolores and fermented it with twelve different brettanomyces strains, and aged it in wine barrels and our foeders with plenty of juicy peaches and nectarines.
After months of maturing and blending, this saison has developed a balance between earthy funk and stone fruit sweetness with a dry, white wine-like finish, perfect for pairing with creamy cheeses and braised pork. 6.5% Abv.

Bend Brewing: Peach OfferingThis unique and refreshing Sour ale was brewed with Pilsner, Wheat, and Honey Malts and a pinch of Crystal hops. Lactobacillus provides a bright tartness, while the addition of over 100 lbs of Oregon Peaches and Whole Chamomile Flowers contribute soft fruit flavors and delicates floral notes. All we are saying is give Peach a chance! 4.5% Abv.

Block 15 Brewing: Peach Pit WitA blend of young and 3-4 year barrel-matured witbiers, conditioned with heaping amounts of juicy peaches. Featuring tannic peach flavor throughout, Peach Pit Wit highlights subtle notes of Belgian yeast spice and citrus from the young witbier, alongside with complex acidity, gentle barrel character, and a hint of funk from the Pinot Noir barrel-matured witbier. Finishes dry, with an approachable sourness and a pithy, peach pit linger. 4.85% ABV

Fort George Brewery: Spring Fever 
Brewed with Belgian Lioness Yeast from Imperial Yeast in Portland. Pleasantly strong esters of white fruit and clove are evident with this particular strain. A bit of rye was added to compliment the spiciness of the yeast. A lot of honey went in as the wort was transferred to the fermenter, adding complexity and a light but lingering honey flavor. Peaches were added post fermentation, accentuating the fruity esters from the yeast. 9% ABV

Golden Valley Brewery: Brett HavenBrett Haven is Golden Valley’s latest beer to incorporate fresh fruit and barrel aging. This light blonde ale aged 3 months in a bourbon barrel with Brettanomyces yeast before spending another two months in an Oregon Pinot Noir barrel with 100 pounds of fresh Red Haven peaches.  Notes of bourbon, oak, and Pinot meld with light brettanomyces funk and peach blossoms for a nuanced and refreshing beer. OG  1.046 IBU  12 ABV   5.4%

Great Divide: Peach Grand CruPeach Grand Cru is Great Divide’s newest limited offering. Brewed with Colorado fruit picked right at the peak of ripeness, this Belgian-style ale marries two of our home state’s well-known offerings: great beer and fresh Palisade peaches.

Oakshire Brewing: 9th Anniversary Ale A long time in the making, exemplifying a passionate dedication to inspired, small batch beers. We started with a crisp Farmhouse Ale, aged it for two years over a mountain of peaches, and matured it for another month with a smaller wild beer and a second dose of peaches. The finished beer presents a brilliant, hazy orange that yields a robust aroma of citrus notes, fresh peaches and acidic, earthy stone fruits. The sweet and floral peach flavors are followed quickly by a bright, tart, funky finish. Our 9th Anniversary Ale presents a great mix of tastes and aromas – certainly worth waiting nine years to enjoy!
