This Dortmund-style lager is the second Prismatic Lager Series release this year following the spring release of Sterling Pils. Established in 2011 with the introduction of Ninkasi’s Helles Belles, the Prismatic Lager Series was created to highlight Ninkasi offerings that are Northwest embellishments of traditional lager styles.
Our botanical ciders share the earthy essence of life in the fields and forests of the Olympic Peninsula. Small batch seasonal production features cider fermented to dry and then steeped with locally harvested Doug Fir and other evergreen needles. We then infuse with organic ginger and sweeten with unrefined organic cane sugar for added depth and balance. Lightly carbonated. Contains no gluten ingredients.
Each batch of pFriem Pumpkin Bier is made with fresh pumpkin and real spices in addition to the standard malt and hops. That’s why every pint is overflowing with aromas of vanilla, notes of cinnamon and touch of caramel. We think you’ll agree that it’s just as flavorful as mom’s pumpkin pie and there’s no baking required.
Don’t be fooled by the powerful hop aroma of Field 41 Pale Ale. This perfectly sessionable, but generously dry-hopped, Pale Ale drinks easy with a smooth bitterness and is named for the hop field that is home to Bale Breaker Brewing Company. Light and refreshing, it’s the perfect beer for a day on the river or afternoon on the slopes.
Pressed golden orange apricots dominate this uniquely tart cider. This highly drinkable and tasty cider shows that apricots can add a bit of zest that brings the cider to life. The apricots add a subtle flavor that is like combining a peach and a plum but not quite as sweet. The Romans and Greeks were on to something when they used apricots as a main ingredient of their drink known as the “Nectar of the Gods”.
Small batch production year-round, featuring cider fermented on the farm using 100% organic apple juice pressed from Washington apples. We ferment the apple juice in stainless steel tanks, then blend with black currant and unrefined organic cane sugar for additional depth, sweetness and flavor. Lightly carbonated. Contains no gluten ingredients.
The story of pilsner starts in 19th century Bohemia when a Bavarian monk smuggled a special yeast to a brewmaster in Pilsen. The story of pFriem Pilsner starts in the Pacific Northwest where it acquires the aroma of fresh grass and flowers and a touch of honey. While there are no monks involved in this pilsner, there is still a crisp and spicy finish.
It’s chocolate brown in color with a creamy texture. A malty beer with just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet. The aroma mostly comes from the malt with a hint of spice added by the hops. Moose Drool is brewed with pale, caramel, chocolate, and whole black malts; and Kent Goldings, Liberty, and Willamette hops. It has an original gravity of 13 degrees Plato, and is 4.2% alcohol by weight, 5.3% by volume.
Pineapples and hops provide a juicy tropical aroma that unfolds into a fruity semi-dry finish. The challenge with bold ingredients is balance and we’ve made it our job to give you just the right amount of hop bitterness to balance out the sweet pineapple. As with our other fruit ciders, we age this one on pureed pineapples, instead to using concentrates or extracts. You get authentic flavor without the sketchy ingredients.
My Grandpa Clyde was born in 1921, on the farm where he would live his entire 92 years. Clyde’s Dry cider is my tribute to his life and his love of the farm. It is a blend of more than twenty varietals, including sweets and sharps grown on the family farm and loved by Grandpa. It has a decent amount of tannic character from the blend and the addition of some locally-picked Manchurian Crab apples.
Logans are generally one of the first berries of the season, and making this sweet, fruity cider floods me with memories of picking them behind where the farm store is today. Logans can’t be picked with a machine as they are too delicate and soft, and those attributes come out in the cider as a sweetness from start to finish.
Flemish Etiquette implores you to wait and see if your host offers a toast before sipping your drink. Where his Belgian Strong Blonde is concerned Pfriem sees things differently. Waiting to taste a perfect harmony of strength and elegance, while sniffing its pear and clove bouquet is like torture. Clean maltiness, invigorating effervescence and just enough bitterness wait for no one.
