The Ale Apothecary
A Note on This Beer
The Brewery: As one of the top 25 UT-rated breweries in the world, The Ale Apothecary is a showstopper when it comes to Sours and Wild Ales from the Northwest. And today’s Be Still Wild Ale features a premiere lineup of exotic, high-end ingredients that’ll leave your palate starstruck.
- Show up with this bottle and get ready to host a flavorful show for your buddies. After you introduce them to this nano-batch sophistication from this world-class Oregon brewery, there will be no denying your craft cred.
The Beer: Using extremely rare Cascara (a.k.a. coffee cherry tea) and Cacao Nibs, the brewers age Be Still for 10 months in Oregon Pinot and Rye Whiskey Barrels. This patient process gives today’s tangy sipper endless layers of wine grape juiciness, oaky vanilla, and earthy herbal notes. Plus, their specialized, unique blend house cultures makes today’s beer 100% free of effervescence, allowing subtle fig and red currant flavors to stand out in a decadent mouthfeel.
- This advanced brew is unlike most other Wild Ales you and your craft friends have experienced, and is a testament to The Ale Apothecary’s meticulous craftsmanship, earning this rare brew a masterful a 93/100 on BA!
The Chase: You could scour every organic, fancy food store and bottle shop around, but you won’t find a single bottle of Be Still. Heck, even on trade forms you’re likely to join a list of Wild Ale fans searching for these Oregon-based brewers that are impossible to find outside the state.
- So unless you grab a bottle now, you and your buds better start packing for one heck of a journey. And even if you trekked deep into the woods of Bend, found the small, forest brewery, and begged for a bottle, chances are, it’d be too late. The Ale Apothecary is renowned for nano-batch brews that are so intricately crafted, they will never be replicated.
