May 2012—Vintage Bottle from Cascade Brewing Barrel House: 2008 Vlad the Imp Aler!

Brought to you by: Cascade Brewing Barrel House Facebook | Twitter
Cascade Brewing Barrel House is offering up a vintage bottle to this month's contest winner: 2008 Vlad the Imp Aler (10.3% ABV / 6 IBU)—"This strong NW sour is a blend of strong blonde quads and tripels aged in oak and Bourbon barrels, then further blended with spiced blondes and left to condition for an additional five months." As of today, this beer is tied at #6 in the Top 40 Portland beers list as voted on by you—so you know this is a great beer! Plus, they've already done the cellaring for you and this bottles got 4 years on it. I certainly wish I was eligable for this—my 2008 bottle only lasted two years and I just couldn't wait any longer to open it! The contest this month is a bit different. Instead of a photo contest, we're going to have a very simple mechanism for entering: Contest Closed. Obviously, a big thanks to Cascade Brewing Barrel House for sponsoring this month's contest and coming up with a delicious prize!
