We have a Logsdon Farmhouse Ales Event on , Tuesday, July 22nd starting at 6pm. What better time to drink We thought it would be a great time to pour some of the Logsdon Beer in the cooler. We will be pouring:
Far West Vlaming (6.5%)
Our organic red ale is brewed in traditional West Flanders style. A combination of light, crystal, and dark barley malt, wheat, and oats are brewed with local whole-cone hops and a variety of select yeast and lactic bacteria. We age our red ale in oak barrels for a period of time to develop complex richness, soft tannins, and fruity tart character. The aged beer is then blended with young beer to create the desired balance of malt sweetness with a dry finish.
Seizoen Bretta (8%)—we will have ’13 and ‘14 vintages
Our organic farmhouse ale is brewed in small batches on a traditional farm brewery as it has historically been made for hundreds of years. This unfiltered bottle of seizoen, with its beeswax seal, is naturally refermented and carbonated with select yeast strains producing fruity and spicy flavors that are balanced by hops and a soft malt character. Special Brettanomyces yeast provides added dryness and crisp complexity. For the most satisfying results, store upright in a cold, dark place and enjoy in a proper glass.
The Conversion Ale (7.8%)
Logsdon’s first wild ale, this is a tart, juicy ale brewed in the farmhouse tradition and opened to wild fermentation.
And their newly released Tripel.
Please join us on Tuesday, July 22nd.
On Wednesday, July 30th we are hosting a Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Across America event.

At our event we will have all 12 beers available on draft, for your imbibing pleasure. There will also be an opportunity to win a trip to Sierra Nevada Beer Camp to brew a beer with other Beer Camp winners. Here's a trailer that tells the story better than we can.
