Tin Dog Brewing announces barrel-aged beer releases

Washington Beer News - Mon, 10/16/2017 - 9:49am

As originally published on


Tin Dog Brewing opened four years ago in Seattle’s South Park neighborhood. Much of their focus is on Belgian-style and farmhouse-style ales. Last year they began barrel-aging some of their beers. This Saturday, October 21st they will release a couple of them for your enjoyment. Here are the details from the brewery:

Tin Dog Brewing Barrel Aged Release Event

October 21st from 1 – 4 PM

Tin Dog Brewing has been perfecting the art of small batch, fresh, local Belgian and Farmhouse style ales almost exclusively over the last 4 years. We came in 8th in the standings at the Belgianfest in 2016. The natural progression for us was to start to barrel age. Last year, we started putting our farmhouse ales in French Oak wine barrels and are ready to share the tasty results of our first and second limited release selections.

Our first Barrel Aged selection has a story to tell. At grape harvest last year, a neighbor had some extra White Concord grapes. We brewed some Saison with Nelson Sauvin hops, chosen for their white wine characteristics and added the grapes to our secondary fermentation. Finally, we chose a French Oak Chardonnay barrel and aged the beer for 9 months. The result we are calling a beer wine hybrid. It has a tart Chardonnay start with an intense oak, hop and malt finish.

Our second selection in our Melange Une, our first blended beer. We have taken three different Barrel Aged beers at different stages in their aging, the oldest having aged for a year, and highlighted the best qualities of each.This is a beer with a peach aroma and taste and a tart lemon drop finish.

We are hosting our first Barrel release event for these small batch beers on Saturday, October 21 from 1-4 PM.

Tin Dog Brewing
309 S. Cloverdale St, A2
Seattle WA 98108

The brewery is located at the front of the Cloverdale Business Park. We have more than doubled our size this year, so there is plenty of room for all. Look forward to seeing you there.

Pike Brewing introduces a new, old beer

Washington Beer News - Fri, 10/13/2017 - 12:20pm

As originally published on

Pike Brewing just introduced a new autumn seasonal beer, Pike Organic Double Oatmeal Stout, but for me it’s more than a seasonal beer from a beloved local brewery. This one represents a big part of my personal beer history. Below, my personal history with this beer. Below that, the story of the beer itself.

When I started drinking beer back in the 1980s, there was no such thing as craft beer. The revolution was in its infancy. As a teenager I was introduced to beers like Rainier, Olympia, and Budweiser. Beers like Heineken and Lowenbrau were considered the good stuff.

As a teenager, I didn’t think about beer too much. Beer was for drinking, that’s all. It was nothing more than a fizzy beverage with pleasant psychotropic effects. I clearly remember the day all of that changed.

At a friend’s house, where his English emigrant father allowed us to drink beer responsibly, I opened the fridge and found something unfamiliar and odd. It was a bottle of Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout. Curious and yet unaware, I opened it and drank it.

The rest is history. Not long after that I began home brewing. I became a beer hunter once I was of legal age. Now, here I am.

My lifelong love affair with beer is due directly to the influence of two men: Darol Hinton, who stocked his fridge with Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout way back in the 1980s, and Charles Finkel, the man responsible for importing that beer to America in the first place. Today, you probably know Charles as the patriarch of Pike Brewing Company, but before owning the brewery he imported beer.

I thought the story had come full circle this past summer when I was fortunate enough to visit and tour the old Samuel Smith’s Brewery in Tadcaster, England, but I was wrong. The circle was completed after I got home from England to discover that Pike Brewing was releasing an Oatmeal Stout of its own.

Enough about me and my story, here’s the story of the beer:

Pike Organic Double Oatmeal Stout- New Autumn Seasonal

Certain beers embody and capture a beer style more than any other. When it comes to oatmeal stout, the beer that sets the standard is Samuel Smith’s Oatmeal Stout. This world classic has a long relationship with Pike Brewing Company since Pike founder, Charles Finkel, conceived the idea of reviving a classic, yet extinct, beer style.  He introduced the idea to Samuel Smith for which he was the importer and then worked alongside their Head Brewer, Allister Ross, to arrive at the color and taste.  Charles designed the logo and label that adorns the bottles and introduced the beer in the U.S. in the late1970s.

Pike Head Brewer, Art Dixon, sought to mirror all the characteristics that drew him to this Smith’s oatmeal stout, such as its silky mouthfeel, warm chocolate tones and roastiness, and then take it up a notch with Organic Double Oatmeal Stout.  Always interested in the details that can set a beer apart, Art took extra care in selecting a unique blend of 6 malted grains and rounding them out with organic oats. He then added his west coast style to the brew with a late addition of Willamette hops, a relation to England’s famed Fuggle hops.

Pike Organic Double Oatmeal Stout is dark and incredibly smooth. The beer’s inviting malt aromas bring you into a silky and round mouthfeel and chocolate, roasty and caramel flavors.

Pike Organic Double Oatmeal Stout is available now on draft and in 22 oz. dinner bottles.

ABV – 7.5%
IBU- 30
OG –  1.070
°L – 24

MALT VARIETIES: Organic Pils, Crystal, Munich, Chocolate Malt, Roasted Malt, Malted Wheat, Rolled Oats

HOP VARIETIES: Nugget, Goldings, Willamette
