Upright Brewing Company "Ives ONE" Still Barrel Fermented Lambic Oregon (375ml)

SKU #1339567

Ives is a label we created for a series of "wild" wheat based beers rooted in the classics from Brussels. In typical Upright fashion, our take is not meant to copy an existing style or specific beer, but to use other examples as a starting point and inspiration. All of the beers under this label use raw wheat and an unusual mash process intended to slowly draw out the barrel fermentation and aging process, creating depth. This first release is a blend of only four casks, all of which were inoculated with orchard yeast and bacteria. After 19 months in the barrel, the beer was bottled still and straight, with no young beer added. The combination of its well aged character, hop rate and the complex fermentation yield a beer with layers of aromas and flavors sharing notes with certain white vermouths, a commonality enhanced by the lack of carbonation.

Additional Information:

Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
Sub-Region:

Oregon

- Highly touted for its Pinot Noirs, Oregon is part of the up-and-coming winemaking industry in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Most of Oregon is directly affected by the climate coming off of the Pacific Ocean, giving it mild winters and wet summers. This makes it a difficult place to ripen grapes, but some say that the harder grapes have to struggle, the more complex they will turn out to be. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are two important and successful grapes grown in Oregon.
