A Note on This Beer
The Ale Apothecary is in a league all its own. Bloomberg calls this Oregon crew the Most Exciting Brewery in the Pacific Northwest because of their natural ingredients and creative brewing methods!
They only craft in highly limited batches, too — they made just 622 bottles of today’s Orobas. And we have fewer than 14 cases of it!
The Oregon crew fermented Orobas with equal parts barley and honey. They started by combining their wort and raw honey, allowing the wild yeast to start fermentation, and aging it in oak for 22 months.
Then, the brewers transferred the beer to Pinot Noir barrels from Domaine Drouhin and aged the elixir with Pinot Noir grape skins for an additional seven months. Finally, they naturally carbonated the brew.
Each opulent sip courses with farmhouse tang and lemon tartness balanced by rich honey, earthy Pinot Noir, and whispers of woody spice.
If you want to be one of the lucky few to taste this incredibly limited release, you’ll have to be quick!
