More from a press release:

If the other beers we make are our babies, these are our grandchildren.  We dote over them, coddle them, worry if they’re too warm or too cold, and give them all the attention when they come to town.  And we think they’re pretty awesome.” Matt Coughlin, Brewer

 

Pêche Cuvee

Pêche Mode aged in oak barrels

This Belgian Style Ale is aged for nine months on local Hood River peaches, our special house yeast, and Brettanomyces. Then aged an additional year in French oak barrels.

8.7% ABV, 8 BU – Sample Bottle available upon special request.

 

Devil’s Cuvee

Oak barrel aged Devil’s Kriek Belgian style sour ale with cherries

With this beer we pay homage to the traditions set before us, and welcome the future ahead.  Each year, we tuck away a little Kriek in French oak barrels for further cellaring.  For this release, we’ve selected the best barrels from our three years of stock to blend.  The time in oak gave depth and wisdom and ripened the fruit, imparting sherry, raspberry, and dry red wine characters. 9.5% ABV, 12 BU
