Using dandelion greens to bitter a Belgian-style ale blossomed from out brewers collaborating with Red Rock Brewing. This being our sixth interpretation together since 2008. Expect a wonderfully complex ale fermented with wild Belgian yeast and blended with just a touch of w0od-aged beer. Bitterness imparted from dandelion greens and grains of paradise will have you blowing wishes for sips.
Cascara Quad is a dark, strong and surprisingly delicate ale made with dates and coffee cherries. Channeling the Trappist tradition, it’s brewed with an ethereal malt bill, and spiced with the fruit of the coffee bean (cascara). The aroma brings dates, cherries and pipe tobacco right to the nose and builds layers with hints of spice and fruity Belgian yeast. Once on the palate, Cascara Quad starts swinging clove, fig and molasses. Each sip offers sweet warmth, deep complexity and fleeting dryness.
Rich, dark, and infused with the complex sweetness of abbey-grown plums.
Ovila Abbey Quad is heady with aromas of caramel, rich malt, and dark fruit balanced by the spiciness and delicate fruity notes of a traditional Belgian yeast. This complex beer is a collaboration between Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and the monks of the Abbey of New Clairvaux. It features sugar plums grown on the grounds of the Abbey and harvested by the monks in Vina. We hope you enjoy this collaboration ale.
Named after Abbot Gregorius Eisvogel who first guided the refugee monks from Alsace,France to Abbey Banz in Germany until they reached their final destination, Stift Engelszell. Abbot Gregorius then led the Trappist Monastery for over 25 years. This special recipe incorporates organic honey from local beehives around St.Engelszell as well as the unique use of an Alsacian wine yeast.
Vicaris Winter ale pours an intense dark brown, almost black. The nose is a warming mix of licorice and ground coffee. Flavore of anise, sweet molasses and roasted coffee dominate the palate. Like all of Dilewyn’s offerings, Vicaris Winter is never filtered. Instead it is only cold clarified by lagering for at least one month. This is one reason why the beer is so well attenuated and smooth. You would never guess it was 10% ABV.
The Cuvée du Château the culmination of 20 years of brewing expertise. Both the flavor and the taste of the Cuvée du Château are those of a mature Kasteel Donker after 10 years of cellaring. The elegant velvet maturity of the dark brown beer, with notes of roasted and caramelized malt, followed by a subtle bitterness of fine English hops in the finish, make this prestigious "ale" a top gourmet beer that even the most demanding beer afficionado will not ignore.
A stronger version of our Lost and Found Abbey Ale brewed to a more contemplative alcohol content. Massive in every stretch of the brewing way possible this is the sort of beer that will remind a beer drinker who considers themselves a saint that even saints stray as sinners from time to time.
Not for the faint of heart, this beer weighs in at a heavenly 10% ABV and is available in 750 ml bottles and on draft at select locations.
