Come into Camas Prairie Winery today and check out what new beers we have in stock.

New Beers in stock @ Camas Prairie WineryNew Import Beers:

Weltenburger Kloster Hefe-Weissbier Hell
Style:
Hefeweizen
Alcohol Content: 5.40% ABV
Brewed in: Germany
RateBeer.com Description:

 This was indeed a great Hefe.  The smell of this brew was fantastic! Loads and loads of fruit and spice with a slight musty lambic like scent hiding in the back.  The mouthfeel was very smooth as the carbonation was almost non-existent with this one.  This is with out a doubt, one of the best Hefeweizens I have had in ages.  Absolutely do try this if you’re a fan of the style.  Score A.”

Brewery Fact: The Abbey Weltenburg is the oldest beer producing monastery in the world and was founded in 1050 A.D.

Golden Pheasant
Style: Czech Pilsener
Alcohol Content: 5.0% ABV
Brewed in: Slovac Republic
Beer Description: 

“Golden Pheasant® is true to the style for the region, a robust, full-flavored beer. It exhibits a great balance between nutty malt flavors, aromatics and delicious noble hop varieties. The finish is clean and refreshing, making Golden Pheasant® a pleasure to drink.”

New Micro Brews:

Great Divide Yeti Imperial Stout
Style: Imperial Stout
Alcohol Content: 9.5% ABV
Brewed in: Denver, Colorado
Commercial Description:

“Great Divide’s Yeti Imperial Stout is an onslaught of the senses. An almost viscous, inky-black brew, Yeti opens with a massive, roasty, chocolate, coffee malt flavor that eventually gives way to rich toffee and burnt caramel notes. Packed with an enormous quantity of American hops, Yeti’s hop profile reveals a slightly citrusy, piney, and wonderfully dry hoppy finish. 75 International Bittering Units (IBUs).”

Odin Brewing – Thor’s Equinox
Style: Belgian Strong Ale
Alcohol Content: 9% ABV
Brewed in: Seattle, Washington
RateBeer Description:

“Pours very, very dark amber with a slight beige head. Nose has a bit of everything – spice, dark malt, chocolate, cinnamon, maybe anise. It brings Mexican chocolate to mind. Med body. Flavor is dark malt, with contributions of dark fruit, chocolate, anise and spices. Still think there’s cinnamon. It’s complex and interesting. Finishes on the dry side.”

Beer Fact: Odin Brewing has taken a different approach than many new brewers, and rather than going for many very big, single batch beers, we are focused on food-friendly beers in a smaller lineup that is readily available year round. (1)

July 2012 Beer of the Month – Westmalle Trappist Ale Dubbel

Image from redsalehouse.com

Brewed by: Brouwerji Westmalle
Country: Belgium
Style: Dubbel
Alcohol by volume: 7.0%
Sale Price: $5.62 + tax

Beer description from brewery:

Westmalle Dubbel is a dark, reddish-brown Trappist beer with a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The creamy head has the fragrance of special malt and leaves an attractive lace pattern in the glass. The flavour is rich and complex, herby and fruity with a fresh-bitter finish. It is a balanced quality beer with a soft feel in the mouth and a long, dry aftertaste. The Dubbel contains 7% alcohol.

Since 1856 the monks have also been brewing a dark Trappist beer along with their table beer. Since the recipe was modified in 1926, they have been brewing slightly heavier beer. This is the foundation of today’s Dubbel.
