Seasonal Beers

Home  >>  Seasonal Beers

Every three months, we switch it up our craft beer selection with a rotating stout and a rotating pale ale, along with several other beers thrown into the mix.

This is what we’re currently pushin’ out of our brewery, whether for the season or just a fun, limited one-off.

Curious if one of these seasonal beers is pouring at one of our Portland, Oregon brewery or pub locations, right now?!  Check out our taplists now!

 

 

Belgian Golden Ale

A mix of sweet and spicy aromas are the signature attributes of this Belgian Style Golden Ale. The use of imported malts give this beer a rich golden hue and subtle malt sweetness that is balanced out by the woody, spicy flavors of our hops. Elevated carbonation enhances the appearance, aromas, and flavors.

Organic Espresso StoutLW_Espresso_Stout_22oz

Organic Espresso Stout is our yearly collaboration with Portland Roasting and one of our favorite brews of the year. Every year Portland Roasting is kind enough to let our brewers come out and do a coffee cupping where they get to pick out a special blend of organic coffee for our stout. This year the brewer’s special blend includes organic coffee from Mexico, Peru and a wonderful single origin coffee from Guatemala called “Las Mujeres”. These coffees compliment and accentuates the roast, chocolate and coffee flavors already in the beer. The result is a smooth dark stout that has layers of rich roast flavor. Enjoy!

Rando IPA #20

laurelwood_rando_6pack_2c-2Rando IPA #20 is another fun installment in the Rando IPA series. This experimental IPA uses
a blend of base malts along with triticale flakes, and a small amount of a medium crystal malt to get a mild, spicy wheat-like flavor with a hint of toasty caramel sweetness. We are using some old hop favorites: Ahtanum and Simcoe, which give us some nice floral and dank, citrus qualities, along with some hop varieties we have been loving from our Rando IPA series: Ella and El Dorado, which we get tropical, melon and some spice. This IPA is heavily focused on hop flavor and aroma with big dry hop additions that really shine with the light malt body. The bitterness is assertive yet balanced for a light bodied, big hopped IPA. We are really excited to see this beer in 6-packs and think that this beer will be a great accompaniment for the fall harvest season. This experimental IPA will be best shared with family and friends, cheers!

The Brettfast Club

Welcome to the new age of Laurelwood! This is our first 100% brettanomyces fermented beer, and we’re extremely excited to drink it with you! Brettanomyces (say: Breh-Tan-Oh-My-See’s), (or Brett for short), is a completely different strain of yeast than that of most beers…. Depending on fermentation temperatures and time, brett can give lots of fruit flavors and aroma, tartness, funk, and a dry finish. We used Brett C for its known tropical fruit flavors at warmer fermentation temps, and dry hopped it twice with some of our favorite hops, Mosaic! We hope you love this beer as much as we do! Prost!

Beer Stats

Night Light Session Stout

Easy drinking and stout seldom go hand in hand but that’s what we did here.  Night Light has all the notable characteristics of an American Style Stout; roasted malt aromas and coffee like flavors that are interlaced with a very approachable ABV.  Northern Brewer hops were added to provide a subtle spicy hop flavor and aroma.  The further addition of milk sugar gives this beer a silky smoothness and further increases the drinkability.  Laurelwood turned the lights on so you don’t have to be afraid of the dark.

Beer Stats

  • Alcohol Content: 4.5%
  • IBUs: 45
  • Original Gravity: 14.5º Plato
  • Malts: 2Row Pale, Midnight Wheat, Caramel, Roast, Chocolate and Rolled Oats, Milk Sugar
  • Hops: CTZ and Northern Brewer

Flanders Red Ale

A Belgian-style red ale fermented with Laurelwood’s house ale yeast then soured in wine barrels for one year. We blended the sour beer with fresh beer, tank conditioned for another year, hand bottled and bottle conditioned. This is a very rare, and very special sour beer release from Laurelwood.

Beer Stats

  • Alcohol Content: 4.8 – 5%
  • IBUs: 10
  • Original Gravity: 12º Plato
  • Malts: Premium 2-Row, Malted and Unmalted Wheat, Munich Malt, Special-B, Carafa
  • Hops: Willamette

Dark Vienna Lager

Inspired by immigrant Austrian brewers of the past our Vienna lager has a lightly toasted malt aroma that is balanced with use of Hallertau and Mt. Hood hops.  With a crisp, dry refreshing finish this beer will make you want more!  

Beer Stats

  • Alcohol Content: 5%
  • IBUs: 20
  • Original Gravity: 11º Plato
  • Malts: Great Western Premium 2-Row, Briess Gold Pilsner, Crisp Flaked Maize, Briess Chocolate

Laurelwood House Lager

LW Lager is our take on a domestic lager with just a little more hops than your grandfather might like.  At 4.6% abv this light lager is as easy on the eyes as it is going down!  The use of Pilsner and 6 row malts give this beer a nice malt sweetness but is balanced out by the citrus and tropical hop aromas and flavor.

Beer Stats

  • Alcohol Content: 4.6%
  • IBUs: 18
  • Original Gravity: 9.75º Plato
  • Malts: Weyermann Pilsner, Rahr 6 Row
