Holiday Ale Dinner

Wednesday, November 19th 2008

Beer Lovers,

Sure the forecast is calling for a week of rain and the grey clouds are rolling up the Columbia River as I type this email, but I assure you relief is on the way. The line up for our Holiday Ale Dinner is sure to whisk away seasonal depression disorder for at least one evening. Please see the attached menu for beer and food pairings. An all-inclusive cost of $65 a person will guarantee that you leave with a brighter outlook on the grey days to come. We are also still offering a season pass discount for people who purchase 4 brewer’s dinner tickets at once. The cost for the season pass is $200 all-inclusive. The Holiday Ale Dinner is on November 19th from 6-9pm. Seats are on sale now and are sure to fill up fast. So call 503-325-PINT(7468) to reserve your spot.

North II – Grand Crüe

OG: 1.074
FG: 1.014
ABV: 8%
IBU: 50

Sugar, spice, and everything nice… this is a beer to cuddle up with in front of the fireplace. The best way to describe North II Grand Crüe is a Belgian-style barleywine. This is the second in a series of Fort George beers created for wintertime enjoyment, the Holiday Ale Festival in December, plus the Great Alaskan Beer and Barleywine Festival in January. Our brewers weaved together ingredients from all over the globe including Canadian Pilsner Malt, Golden Promise from Scotland, Belgian Wit yeast, raw Hawaiian sugar, and oats from the mainland USA. North II is gently warming, with a spiciness of cloves and cinnamon, a creamy body, and a ripe peach finish. Come in and enjoy a glass. See you there.
