Hood River, OR-January, 20th, 2014 –Double Mountain Brewery brings a new limited beer to its bottle line up, My Little Runaway-Belgian Style Cherry Ale. This refreshing cherry ale is currently available on draft and by bottle at the Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom located in downtown Hood River. A limited run of bottles and draft will be available in local retail shops and watering holes throughout the Pacific Northwest and parts of Southern California as early as January 26th.
“This beer is like love; it won’t last long, but is so, so very good when it stays with you.” Shares Matt Swihart, owner and brewmaster, “Enjoy this beer while it lasts, since we only made a small batch it will be found at just a handful of places. On a final note,” he adds, “I recommend listening to Slaid Cleaves while drinking this beer.”
Like all beers at Double Mountain, the My Little Runaway is unfiltered for the purpose of preserving freshness and flavor. This cherry ale contains a small amount of natural fruit and yeast sediment that forms on the bottom of the bottle. Double Mountain offers a pouring guide that fits the drinker’s preference:
To Pour clear: Store this beer upright and pour slowly into a glass and leave the last half inch of beer in the bottle.
For a brewer’s pour: Follow instructions above, then swirl the remaining beer in the bottle and add to the glass for that fresh unfiltered straight-from-brewers’-tank flavor!
My Little Runaway, Belgian Style Cherry Ale – 6.4% ABV, 22 BU
Description: Beers can be a canvas for the soul. This little runaway combines the Ardennes fruity yeast, Oregon Van and Bing Cherries and a tiny stolen blend of next year’s Devil’s Kriek to commingle as sweet refreshing cherry ale with the ghost of bitterness. Some beers last forever, some go away, some move to Florida, let’s see if this one stays.
