This Friday, April 8th, Sumerian Brewing in Woodinville celebrates its first anniversary. They’ll have food specials, raffle prizes awarded every hour from 6-9PM, a birthday cake, $1 off beer all day long, and some special beers on tap.
These are just a few of the awesome brews you can look forward to:
Triple IPA (TEST BREW): Not the final for this beer -> we are test brewing this IPA for our summer party. There is a heavy hit of Simcoe hops in it (which we have never used before). It comes in at a little over 10.5% ABV and has a whopping IBU of 130 plus! Limited to 2 max +poured in a Tulip
Cask Conditioned Saison: This beer started as a fun test brew but became much more of a serious contender for our permanent beer lineup (in non-cask form). This beer was made with a Saison yeast, fermented at a higher temp, then placed in a cask with some crushed coriander seeds and orange peel. 6.0%ABV
Porter aged in Merlot barrel: This beer was made on our test system before Sumerian was named. Created in June of 2014 designed to be a Brown Ale, we quickly realized it was more like a Porter. Instead of dumping it out we decided to age it for 5 months in a small French oak barrel that had held Merlot just days before. We decided to blow the dust off this keg and revisit it the other day to see if it was worthy….it has only gotten better! Heavy notes of chocolate and coffee beans, skirted with undertones of a rich port. VERY limited. One tulip per person.
