The Commons Brewery Maybelle Farmhouse Ale

Portland, OR – The Commons Brewery will be releasing it’s first bottles at their brand new tasting room and brewery in Southeast Portland. Maybelle, farmhouse ale aged in white wine barrels with Brettanomyces, will be released as part of the Beetje Series on Saturday, April 11th, 12:00pm.

Brewed in August 2013 and initially fermented with our house farmhouse ale strain, Maybelle then spent 14 months in Adelsheim Vineyard white wine barrels with Brewing Science Institute Brettanomyces Bruxellensis variant Drei. The resulting beer is dry, with a soft acidity and complex brettanomyces aromatics. The flavors in this beer will continue to develop with cellar time.

Maybelle  will be available in 750ml capped bottles for $10 per bottle and will be available on draft in limited quantities the weekend of the release. The beautiful label art was once again created by Adam Burke, brother of Head Brewer Sean Burke.  More information about Adam Burke’s art can be found at:  http://www.nightjarillustration.com.

The Beetje Series is a celebration of The Commons Brewery’s nano roots. First brewed in 2010 on a one-barrel system in Mike Wright’s garage, these small batch beers pay homage to the rustic brewery that continues to inspire us.
