Approaching the first anniversary of their patio-enabled location, at 3412 SE Division Street, Little Beast Brewing Company invites you along with Salt & Straw in celebrating this achievement.
On June 14th, from 12 pm to 8 pm, the brewery will be joined by Salt & Straw's R&D (Research & Development) team coinciding with the three unique beer and ice cream pairings.
Roasted Strawberry Coconut Vegan Ice Cream paired with Dream State (Foeder Aged Ale with Strawberries)
Roasting strawberries does something truly magical. While our favorite Hood strawberries are already amazing in their natural state, roasting them caramelizes their sugars and makes them irresistible. We simply blend the roasted berries with coconut cream and churn in our ice cream makers. Yum!
Aged for over 6 months in our Cabernet Sauvignon foeder and with 7 distinct microflora, Dream State contains 100 pounds of fresh whole Oregon strawberries per barrel. Full of lush fruit flavor, soft acidity and a complex depth of character.
7% ABV / 13 IBU / 375 mL
Sea Salt w/ Caramel Ribbons Ice Cream paired with Golden Stone (Oak Aged Ale with Peaches, Nectarines, and Apricots)
We created this ice cream with Mark Bitterman, the owner and “selmelier” at The Meadow, the internationally renowned Portland salt shop. He actually wrote the book on salt, Salted, a James Beard Award winning cookbook.
We use their Fleur de Sel, which is made in Guatemala from salt pans that are famed for supplying the Mayan Empire at the height of its power. We’ve topped it off by ribboning in hand-burned caramel that we make in house!
A blend of peaches, nectarines and apricots gives a luscious elegance to this farmhouse ale. Prevailing notes of vanilla, toasted French oak & juicy stone fruit.
8.1% ABV / 12 IBU / 375 ML
Double Fold Vanilla Ice Cream paired with Black Cap (Foeder Aged Ale with Black Cap Raspberries)
This ice cream is called ‘double fold’ because our friends at Singing Dog Vanilla in Eugene, Oregon use twice as many vanilla beans when making it! They also work with growers in Papua New Guinea and Indonesia to find the very best organic vanilla, pay the farmers a fair price, and share a percentage of profits when the final products sell. They call it Fair Trade Plus+ and it’s tasty enough to cause the Wall Street Journal to name it ‘the new standard to beat’!
Seven distinct microflora and an abundant amount of whole Oregon blackcap raspberries combine to create a jammy, medium-bodied earthy ale with bright acidity.
8.4% ABV / 12 IBU / 375 ML
Our story is part luck, part strategy and part love (for ice cream, family, local foods, and other stuff we can’t mention here). I (Kim) have been wanting to open an ice cream scoop shop since 1996. I thought it would be nice to have a local spot where you could run into your neighbors, celebrate with your family, reward yourself…whatever! And I love exploring fun, interesting new flavors. After toiling away in safe mode working for several amazing Fortune 500 businesses, I moved back to Portland for love and found the window of opportunity and support that I’d been lacking to jump start my idea.
Founded by partners in life and work, Charles Porter and Brenda Crow, Little Beast is a family brewery with a passion for making great beer and sharing it with others.
We craft wild, wood-aged and blended beer naturally with diverse cultures, including Saccharomyces, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, and wild flora. By harnessing the little beasts that ferment our beer, we capture their untamed beauty and produce farmhouse beers that are diverse in flavor and rare in character.
