EUGENE, OR: On Sunday, November 19th from 12 p.m. – 8 p.m., Eugene’s Alesong Brewing and Blending will release four new beers in bottles and is hosting a celebration at its wine country tasting room and brewery (80848 Territorial Highway) for its mailing list members who purchase bottles in the presale (sign up free at alesongbrewing.com/join). The celebration will take place in the barrel cellar, where the new beers will be available for tasting for the first time and paired with artisan cheese bites, live music and a food cart.
The tasting room will be open to the public as normal, but the release celebration in the cellar and access to the new beers will only be for those who pre-order, with a 6 bottle purchase waiving the $20 entry fee. The new release will be available for all in the tasting room and select restaurants and bottle shops the following week.
“We have always viewed these release events as a way to say thank you to our best customers and let them try the new beers first, but have also felt there was room for people beyond our mailing list to share the fun” says cofounder, Doug Coombs. “However, it was becoming harder and harder logistically to provide a great experience for our members while also trying to plan for an unknown number of other attendees and decided to limit attendance to mailing list purchasers only so as to ensure a great experience for everyone.”
New beers being released include:
- Apricot Sky - Mixed culture blonde ale aged in oak barrels with whole apricots
- Terroir: Pinot Gris - Brett fermented farmhouse ale aged in oak and conditioned with Pinot Gris juice
- Vanilla Rhino Suit - a vanilla version of our bourbon barrel-aged imperial milk stout
- Dubbel - Belgian style dubbel ale

ABOUT ALESONG BREWING AND BLENDING: Alesong Brewing and Blending is a small artisan brewery based in the heart of Southern Willamette Valley wine country that crafts unique and small-batch beers with a focus on oak aging and Belgian-inspired techniques, brewing both wild and non-wild beers, using locally grown fruits, herbs and a host of special yeasts and other microbes. Once the beer in the barrels has matured, the team samples and selects each barrel individually to blend. Paying homage to old-world Lambic blenders and artisan winemakers, Alesong believes that the final, balanced blend of a barrel-aged beer is much more satisfying than the sum of its parts or each individual barrel by itself.
