Eugene, Oregon’s Alesong Brewing and Blending has four new bottled beer releases–along with the brewery’s first can–to release starting Sunday, May 27th, at the brewery estate and tasting room, with events to follow at The Upper Lip in Portland and Teku Tavern in Seattle. The Eugene tasting room release is first open just to mailing list members, who can pre-purchase their bottles at alesongbrewing.com starting today. The release party will feature small paired bites and live music from 12pm – 6pm.
Alesong is also hosting remote release and pickup parties for mailing list members in Portland at The Upper Lip on 5/30 from 5-8 p.m. and in Seattle at Teku Tavern on 6/5 from 5-8 p.m. All four beers will be on draft with paired cheese bites for mailing list members who have participated in the pre-sale and the Alesong team will be on hand to chat about the new beers and deliver pre-sale purchases.
“We’ve always focused on our release parties as our preferred way to show off our new beers with food and provide a great experience for our members, and are really excited to expand that to include events in both Portland and Seattle for people who can’t make it down to Eugene,” says co-founder Doug Coombs. “Plus we have a bunch of great new member benefits, including discounts on pre-order beer and tasting room purchases!”
New beers being released include:
- Touch of Brett: Mandarina – Our award winning, dry-hopped 100% brett-fermented farmhouse ale
- Terroir: Pinot Noir– Another in our series of wine/beer hybrids, refermented on whole cluster Pinot Noir from Benton Lane winery
- Raspberry Gose– Tart, fruity and refreshing! The perfect summer quencher
- 2nd Can-niversary Collaboration IPA– Our annual excuse to make an IPA! This year we are collaborating with our friends at Block 15 to bring you the hoppy goodness (draft only outside of OR)

ABOUT ALESONG BREWING AND BLENDING: Alesong Brewing and Blending is a small artisan brewery based in the heart of Southern Willamette Valley wine country that crafts unique and small-batch beers with a focus on oak aging and Belgian-inspired techniques, brewing both wild and non-wild beers, using locally grown fruits, herbs and a host of special yeasts and other microbes. Once the beer in the barrels has matured, the team samples and selects each barrel individually to blend. Paying homage to old-world Lambic blenders and artisan winemakers, Alesong believes that the final, balanced blend of a barrel-aged beer is much more satisfying than the sum of its parts or each individual barrel by itself.
