Ashley of Brewvana stopped by and we talked about brewery tours -- the bus seems like the ideal way to visit breweries (no duii!). Be sure to ask her about visiting Ambacht when you arrange your tour.

Monaco Cup
Ambacht's Golden Rose Ale was selected by Chef Andrew Garrett from Cafe Nell to pair with his crowd-pleasing pork and beans for a pairing that won the Monaco Cup!

Portland's Cheers to Belgian Beers 2011

We had a great time and enjoyed hearing the comments on our Honey Triple, our smooth, dry triple with the added complexity of my own wild flower honey. We will be releasing more of this this fall so look for it before the holidays.

KSW Beer Line Caught Beer Reviews
Greg says: Rye beer lovers are going to love rye beers, and we're okay with that; however, there are more-drinkable rye beers out there. You're better-off going for something like Ambacht Brewing's Golden Rye Ale...

Portland Beer and music
Jason says some very nice things about Ambacht Black Gold Porter and Golden Rye Ale.

Beer O'Clock
We also met Portland's Beer Goddess Lisa Morrison, who invited Tom to join her on the 3rd of July episode of her weekly radio show Beer O'Clock with The Beer Goddess, which airs Saturdays at 3 to 4pm on News Radio 750 KXL. Be sure to tune in, or check out the podcast.

"When they say Beer, we say Organic"
We had a great response to the two Ambacht ales being poured this year's North American Organic Brewer's Festival (NAOBF). Folks tasted and enjoyed our Black Gold Porter, (which is dark in color but light on the tongue, and is a dark biere de garde rather than a porter). Most tasters were also impressed with our Black Gold's rye cousin, Golden Rye Pale Ale, which we think is delicious and refreshing. We had a great time meeting folks, and had our first major media exposure on KGW Channel 8's Live at 7 news program:

Portland Cheers to Belgian Beers
We bottled up some of our PCTBB entry and they will be ready in a few weeks. We hit the bullseye in the beer selector dart-throw and could make anything we wanted. We were curious what Wyeast's Farmhouse (3726PC) would do to our Porter recipe, so we cooked up a batch and I think we hit another bullsey with this one -- this yeast brings new flavors to the party!
I served up our beer during the first shift at PCtBB and had a great time chatting with folks. Here is a picture of Brandy and Tom at PCtBB 2010, serving up Ambacht. The folks at BrewPublic had some nice things to say about us!

Our days of flying under the radar are over. BrewPublic stopped by and interviewed me and now our cover is blown! At least we have a little bit of beer to taste. So if you are in the neighborhood stop by to say hello and try a beer or two. Here is a map to our location.
