Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB), the first Certified B Corporation brewery in the Pacific Northwest, has announced it will honor mug club memberships from recently closed breweries, cideries, and bars in the Portland area.
Known Presence is a new Orval-inspired Belgian-style Pale Ale from Von Ebert Brewing (Glendoveer)’s Sean Burke that will be released in bottles this Saturday, August 24th. Rather than try to mimic the classic Orval, Burke has been inspired by it and crafted a loving homage in its tribute. Known Presence will be paired with cheeses by cheesemonger Steve Jones for the ticketed release party event from 11am – 3pm in Von Ebert Glendoveer’s oak cellar.
Known Presence was fermented in stainless steel, then moved to oak puncheons to condition with brettanomyces for 8 months. It was then taken out of the puncheons and dry-hopped with Santiam and Savinjski Golding Hops before being bottle conditioned. The final beer finishes at 6% ABV.
More from a press release:
We could think of no better way to introduce this beer to the world than to partner with renowned cheesemonger Steve Jones of Cheese Bar. Join us on August 24th from 11AM-3PM in the oak cellar at our Glendoveer brewery for a pairing of cheeses and cured meats hand selected by Steve, our chef, and our brewers to pair perfectly with the latest Von Ebert Glendoveer Release.
