Fresh off winning a gold mdeal at the Oregon Beer Awards for Urban Farmhouse Ale, The Commons Brewery will be releasing Clarabelle in bottles on March 12th, 12pm at the brewery’s tasting room.
Clarabelle began as Maybelle, a barrel aged blonde farmhouse ale. It was then aged in Ransom Old Tom Gin barrels for one year before finishing in a stainless steel tank with a blend of Brettanomyces and 500 pounds of peaches from Baird Family Orchards. The result is a rich and aromatic farmhouse ale, with bold peach notes and a balancing floral character from the Brettanomyces and Gin barrels. Clarabelle is ready to drink now, as the deep fresh fruit character is woven delicately into the Brettanomyces profile, but can also be cellared for one year.
