Von Ebert Brewing releases ‘Obeisance’ Brett Beer in Bottles

One-year-old Von Ebert Brewing has announced its first official bottle release from the new Glendoveer location, a brett beer called Obeisance. This heritage beer is brewed in tribute to Upright Brewing’s 10th anniversary and will be released on Saturday, June 8th for Portland Beer Week. Obeisance was brewed at the oak heavy and foeder/barrel-focused Glendoveer brewery which will host the release party from 11am-3pm on the 8th.

More from a press release:

The beer, called Obeisance, meaning deferential respect, is an homage to Upright Brewing, who is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. The beer is actually two beers that were brewed at Von Ebert’s Pearl Location.  Both beers spent over a year in Oak Puncheons with Brettanomyces. They were then brought over to Glendoveer for blending and the addition of Etrog and Calamondins from Pearson Ranch in California as well as Long Pepper. Calamondins are also known as Calamansi or Philippine Lime and they are a hybrid of Kumquat and Mandarin Orange.  Etrog’s are a citron typically used in the Jewish celebration of Sukkot. The beer was bottle conditioned for over 2 months.

There are only about 70 cases being released on June 8th starting at 11am. There will be a 6 bottle limit for the public and a 12 bottle limit for Von Ebert Stein Society members. There will be keg conditioned Obeisance also available so that folks can try the beer before they buy it. Von Ebert will have brewers available for tours from 11 to 3 and snacks will be provided during the tour for folks buying bottles. The release will only occur at Glendoveer, but the Pearl District will receive a limited number of cases/ kegs for release the following week on June 15th. Obeisance will cost $12 each and they are 500ml (16.9 oz) bottles.
