Full Sail Brewing Celebrates Oregon Craft Beer Month
Hood River, Oregon - Brewers know the best way to celebrate is to brew a special beer, and in honor of Oregon Craft Beer Month Full Sail Brewing Company will release a new beer in their Brewer's Share line up. The special beer, Andy's Ambrosia Red, was developed by Full Sail Brewer Andy Cummings. The Brewer's Share series is a line up of small batch draft beers where each of the Full Sail brewers takes a turn hand-crafting a single batch recipe of their choosing.
You are invited to swing by and raise a toast with brewer Andy Cummings and the Full Sail Crew to celebrate Oregon Craft Beer Month and to "Meet the Brewer and the Beer" at their Riverplace Brewery in Portland, on Monday, July 13th from 5:00 to 6:30PM and at the Full Sail Tasting Room and Pub in Hood River, on Thursday, July 16th, from 5:00 to 6:30PM.
In Greek mythology ambrosia was considered the drink of the gods. Rightfully so that brewer Andy Cummings has crafted this heavenly red ale; its namesake also means "delightful liquid". This medium-bodied, dry-hopped red ale was brewed with a variety of specialty malts (Crystal, Munich, Honey and Carafa) with a pronounced hop flavor and an emphasis on the aroma from the dry Brewer's Gold hops.
Living up to Full Sail's reputation as "brewers of godlike nectar," Andy notes that his inspiration was to brew something for any beer lover to enjoy midst the summer's hellacious heat. "It's generously hopped, but the alcohol is on the lighter side, making it easy to drink more than just one... and perhaps experience a bit of that immortality." ABV 4.9% IBU 53.
Full Sail's Brewer's Share beers will be exclusively available on tap at Full Sail's Tasting Room and Pub in Hood River, Oregon, and at Full Sail's Brewery at Riverplace, in Portland, Oregon. Growlers to go are also available. The next Brewer's Share will be crafted by Full Sail brewer Nathan Jacobson and is expected in early September.
