Little Beast Brewing is continuing to can new beer and show-off a vast range of beer style expertise, not just the barrel-aged sour fruited beers they are known for. The latest is called simply “Lager” and packaged in bright gold 16oz cans. Along with that, a taproom favorite makes it’s packaged debut with Sylvestris fruited Gose. Both beers are now in single cans and 4-packs in the market, and available through Little Beast’s new home beer delivery service.
More from a press release:
Little Beast Lager is the brewery’s newest seasonal release. At 4.8% ABV, the beer is designed to be incredibly easy drinking with a light malt profile that finishes crisp and clean. The lager is fermented with Augustiner yeast and is brewed with 100% German heritage and German grown hops and malt. Hopped with Hallertauer Mittelfrüh and Perle hops on the hot side, the lager is then lightly dry hopped with Mandarina Bavaria for a soft boost of citrus, spice, and berry flavor.
Little Beast Lager is available now for $16 per 4-pack of 16oz cans for at-home delivery throughout Portland by visiting shop.littlebeastbrewing.com. Sylvestris is a Fruited Gose beer that releases on Wednesday, April 8 to stores and for at-home delivery. To make Sylvestris, Head Brewer Charles Porter transfers a beer fermented with lactobacillus directly onto second-use whole Pinot Noir cluster grapes where it picks up a light rosé color before being blended into another fermenting wort. In addition to the coloration, the fruit gives the beer grape, green peppercorn, and black peppercorn flavors. Coriander and salt are added in true Gose style.
Because the beer has received high praise from fans at the brewery’s beer garden, Porter decided it was time to give the beer a limited package run. Only 250 cases will be produced. The beer is $20 per 4-pack of 16oz cans. Visit shop.littlebeastbrewing.com to order Little Beast’s beers for at-home delivery to most of Portland.
