Harvester Brewing Releases St. Denny Dubbel Style Ale April 12th

 

Harvester Brewing is pleased to announce the latest release out of their dedicated gluten-free brewery in the Experiment Ale series, a Dubbel style ale made with Belgian candi syrup.

 

Similar to Harvester’s other beers, the Dubbel is made using roasted chestnuts but is differentiated by the addition of dark Belgian candi syrup. It’s lightly hopped with Styrian Goldings, and fermented with a blend of two gluten-free Belgian yeast strains.

 

When Harvester founder James Neumeister was starting out as a homebrewer, he contacted homebrewing legend Denny Conn and asked him where he could learn to brew using the batch-sparge method that Denny advocates when homebrewing. Denny invited James over that weekend and after a day of brewing under Denny’s tutelage, his word quickly became the rule when James was homebrewing, prompting his other brewing partners to start referring to Mr. Conn as ‘Saint’ Denny. This background, combined with the common practice of Belgian style beers having ‘Saint’ names, led to the name St. Denny for this beer.

 

St. Denny Dubbel style ale will be released at Harvester Brewing this Friday, April 12th at an event from 3:30 to 7pm.  A very limited amount of the St. Denny Dubbel will be available on draft, only at the brewery.  Bottles will roll out to store shelves next week and are available to order through Harvester’s online store now for shipment starting April 15th.

Harvester makes some of the best GF beers out there. My brother is on a GF diet prescribed due to Lyme Disease, so I’ve been sampling with him as he’s tried various GF beers and ciders. We came across Harvester in a local shop when he was visiting me in Bend, OR. The dark ale is great…even compared to regular beer. If you’re outside of their distribution areas (OR, WA, ID, VT I think), they do have an online store and ship to most states. It isn’t cheap, but is well worth it if you’re a beer lover, especially considering the options in other parts of the country. Just shipped him a sampler of 12, 22oz bottles for his b-day, cost around $115 including shipping and handling.
