MADCOW BREWING COMPANY (PORTLAND, OR)
Sister Cats Schwarzbier — Black Lager 5.2% ABV
Some cats just want to be different. When out in the country we find many types of barn cats. Some are just normal cats, and then there are the ones that are different…..much like this beer. A true rebel of a beer style, for the misfit in all of us. Schwarzbier (“shvahrts-beer”), is simply German for black beer. This dark lager has notes of roast chocolate, but unlike a porter or a stout it’s light and easy to drink. Very refreshing and soul lifting, it is great beer for the spring or summer when you want greater depth of flavor in your beer.
Golden Guernsey — Honey Rye Saison 5.5% ABV
A Honey and Rye-forward farmhouse ale, this warm weather brew is just what you’ve been looking for. A touch of honey on the nose tangles with the aromas of the Belgian yeast. There is a mild sweetness from the local Pacific Northwest Blackberry and Clover Honey that blends seamlessly with the malted rye. A dry finish is complimented by the subtle spicy notes that linger and round out with hints of faint fruity-esters to create a crisp and refreshing saison.
