Hopworks : New Release for Cheers to Belgian Beers

Thanks to Hopworks for this delightful update - something new and delicious to look forward to! 

"Debuting on draught at Portland’s Cheers to Belgian Beers on April 21, this new series of bottle conditioned beers features classic European styles through our own Northwest perspective. The first in this series is an Abbey Ale. The second in the series is a Belgian Pale Ale, launching in July.

Hopworks Organic Belgian-Style Abbey Ale

Made with this year's PCTBB yeast, Abbey is made with five different organic malts and organic dark brown sugar, resulting in a complex multi-layered aroma.  The flavor is equally rich with a caramel malty sweet, fruity flavor finished with effervescent carbonation and a smooth, warming alcohol finish."

ABV: 6.5%           
IBU: 18  
Plato: 20

Bottles available May through June 2012.
