Product Description

IBUs: 22 SRM: 3.1 OG/TG: 11.8/2.6°P ABV: 4.9% Our Late Hop Helles is fermented with lager yeast, and showcases our proprietary lagering cellar techniques that result in a classic pilsner malt character and smooth, clean finish. Sound like an ordinary Helles lager? Not so fast- its only hop addition is in the whirlpool, not the brew kettle, meaning huge hop taste and aroma with low bitterness.

Details

Varietal: Munich Helles

Region: Oregon

Region Description:

This state’s strict wine laws demand that variety wines must contain at least 90% of the named grape (except for Cabernet Sauvignon). The region’s cool climate comes from its proximity to the Pacific and its primary grapes are Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The latter wine is usually medium bodied, with aromas reminiscent of pears and apples and a surprising depth and complexity. Oregon Pinot Gris is a great food wine, and works especially well with seafood and salmon. Pinot Noir is a more expensive wine here, but that is because it can be such a difficult grape to grow that yields are inevitably low. The best Oregon Pinot Noirs are balanced, fruity and full.
