Events Coming Up At Brouwer’s Cafe


There are some great events coming up soon at Brouwer’s Cafe.  Things get rolling tonight with Ninkasi Brewing Company at 6:00PM with,  “Wait, I thought you guys just made IPA’s?”  Here is some information on the brews from Brouwer’s Cafe’s website:

Ancient Aleiens-Deep mahogany hued and fermented with an Alt yeast strain, it has a clean toasted malt profile that finishes with a bright citrus and floral hop presence. This beer was conditioned on 80 pounds of Chocolate Nibs (from Theo Chocolates in Seattle) with the addition of Guatemalan Coffee (from Water Avenue Coffee in Portland). Ancient Aleiens has a deep dark cocoa taste up front that warms into a sweet coffee expression, finishing with a fruity hop aroma. Smooth toasted malt flavor balances the rich cocoa bitterness. It has the brown hue of iced coffee with a tan head. The coffee sweetens the beer in the middle, lending to nutty, caramel, and chocolate coffee flavors.
IBU’s: 60
ABV: 7.1
Hops: Nugget, Summit, Amarillo and Crystal.
2013 ReNEWale: E.S.B. – ReNEWale Extra Special Bitter has smooth caramel malt notes upfront and fruity esters contributed by the yeast. Kent Goldings and Northern Brewer Hops add a deep earthy and grassy hop flavor and aroma.
IBUs: 44
ABV: 5.8
Hops: Nugget, Northern Brewer and East Kent Goldings
Sasquatch Legacy Wheatwine– A Wheat Wine is a Barley Wine strength beer that is made with a large amount of wheat in its grist. Wheat Wines are typically smoother than their Barley Wine cousins with the wheat exhibiting toasted, bready, and Bock-like malty richness. The Falconer’s Flight hops used for bittering are balanced with the earthy and grassy Willamette and Brewer’s Gold Hops. Elegant, full-bodied maltiness with a balanced finish, this is a big beer with a little bite!
IBUs: 80
ABV: 9.0
Hops: Falconers Flight, Brewers Gold and Willamette
Also pouring will be Allies win the War, and ImperiAle Stout.
Next up, on January 23rd, Brouwer’s welcomes Coronado Brewing Company, out of Coronado, California.  You might remember the name from a little dust up that happened last year, when Coronado Brewing supposedly initiated legal action against Elysian Brewing Company over the name of Elysian’s ‘Idiot Sauvin IPA’ (Coronado Brewing makes a beer called ‘Idiot IPA’).  Nobody but the breweries involved really know what happened there, but Elysian’s IPA has since been renamed Savant IPA.
Some other beers offered by Coronado Brewing Company include:
  • Coronado Golden Pilsner
  • Orange Ave Wit
  • Islander IPA
  • Mermaid’s Red
  • Blue Bridge Coffee Stout
  • Idiot IPA
  • Hoppy Daze
  • Red Devil
  • Frog’s Breath IPA
  • Stupid Stout
  • and more…
Coronado will have a brewery representative on hand to answer any questions you may have about Coronado Brewing or their beers.  Things will get rolling around 6:0oPM.  Come on out and welcome Coronado to the Northwest.
