    Corvus Frambicus American Raspberry Sour

    Here it is folks, our raspberry sour with all the soul we could squeeze into it. This pours bright and red with strong raspberry and mature soured notes on the nose. It drinks crisp and dry with a slight ‘raspberry hard candy’ note on the front. This soon gives way to a huge acid content which pushes the edge of comfort on the back of the palate. The finish is surprisingly clean and lingering. Brewed and soured using one of our two house sour strains, “Angelica”, which we grew up from wild bacteria and yeasts native to the Skagit valley. Copious amounts of local, seasonal and farm direct raspberries were harmed year after year in the making of this beer. CORBEAUX SERIES – RARE BIRD

    Corvus Kriekus is an old world inspired sour ale brewed with "Van" and "Black Republican" cherries locally sourced in Wenatchee, WA. Corvus Kriekus is identifiable by its balance of sour and wild earthy notes underpinned by deep cherry flavor. Subtle undertones of chocolate, dried fruit, and hay are a result of not only the cherry varietals that were sourced, but the tiny microflora that inhabit the fruit, lending a specific terroir to this rare bird.

With this stately sense of pomp and tradition we would be bringing you our Imperial Stout, Grandfather Raven. However, this is an older, grander bird that had spent over a year honing itself in a 20 year old bourbon barrel. Since then it has been maturing on stainless steel. This robust black ale is full with rich dark caramel, unsweetened chocolate, with hints of coffee all mellowed with smooth oak and top shelf bourbon notes. Stately indeed, but at 11.7% ABV, perhaps it is just a vain attempt to encourage the trickster spirit to act respectably. RARE BIRD!

    Gunpowder Plot Nitro Porter

    This annual release nitro porter celebrates the thwarting of an insidious plot attempted by Guy Fawkes & his band of anti-heroes on November 5th, 1605. Fawkes’ goal was to blow up the House of Lords with barrels of gunpowder. This year we plotted closely with Anchorhead Coffee Roasters, out of Duvall, to create a perfectly roasted coffee exclusively for this beer. We soaked a portion of those pristine beans in top shelf bourbon, and cellared the whole shebang on criminal amounts of cocoa nibs. In order to unify the flavors and give it that classic British feel we conditioned it on Nitrogen. This beer pairs well with Bangers, treacle toffee or burning your Guy Fawkes on a bon-fire. So quench the conspiracy, light your fires and remember the 5th of November.

    La Mort Rouge is born from a marriage between La Petite Mort, our dark Belgian style strong ale, and red wine barrels from our friends at Efeste Winery in the Woodinville valley. In La Mort Rouge, we use multiple specialty malts to create a rich, complex beer and then balance that with red wine tannin from maturation in barrels. This vintage was aged for eight months in red wine barrels and then blended. Only 145 cases are produced each year.

    “La Petite Mort” means “a little death” in French. What’s a little death if it comes in this form? Well worth it we think. This Belgian inspired strong abbey brown ale is brewed with a Belgian Ardennes yeast strain, and a generous three month cellar aging mellows and matures this fine ale. This additional time brings out flavors of dark fruit such as plums and raisins, deep caramel notes, and wonderful earthy tobacco tones.

    2013 Washington Beer Awards: Silver medal – American-Style Pale Ale

    This beer was born out of the joy of late night double batch brewing. The whirring of the pumps and the wails of David Byrne led us to this new IPA idea. Built on a simple malt base this IPA will let the hops talk straight to your head. The hope behind this beer was to make a low alcohol IPA that has the same hop aroma and flavor profile of a standard IPA & even some double IPAs out there. Take a sip, sit back and ask yourself, can I get used to this lifestyle? Well, with a bouquet of hop aroma blasting us in the face and fruit flavors of peach, nectarine, & grapefruit backed up with a clean/dry bitterness leaving us wanting more, we sure can.
