Upright Brewing Undercurrent Coming Feb. 21

upright-sole-compositionThe first Upright Brewing Sole Composition release in a number of months is ready to debut, as the brewery will offer bottles of Undercurrent beginning on Friday, February 21 at 4:30pm. This barrel-aged, blended strong saison was aged in a combo of whiskey and wine barrels, finishing up at 8.9% ABV.

The details:

  • $15 per 750mL bottle
  • Limit 2 per person (updated 2/20)
  • 124 bottles produced

From the Upright info sheet:

Back in January 2013 we brewed a strong saison to age in several casks we had available – five local whiskey barrels and one wine barrel. The idea was to make a malty dark amber beer that would pickup some oak and spirit notes but drink somewhat balanced. The Undercurrent achieves this character with layered flavors including light stone fruit, cherry, and milk chocolate, while finishing soft, clean and dry. An excellent beer to enjoy as a back to your favorite brandy, or try it with other spirits as well. Named after a Blue Note classic by Kenny Drew. Best drank within 2014.

Upright Brewing is located at 240 N. Broadway Suite 002 in Portland, OR.
