Peach Food Specials
Peach Braised Pulled Pork Sandwich with Smokey Peach BBQ Sauce & Peachy Coleslaw
Almanac Brewing: Brandy Barrel Peche
Historically, fruit-infused sour beers were a way of preserving the summer harvest. In that tradition, this blonde ale was added to brandy barrels with high-summer peaches, hand-picked by the Loewen family at Blossom Bluff Orchards in Reedley, California. We aged this liquid gold for six months until we needed a reminder that summer will come again. Pair with Prosciutto, crusty bread and fruit preserves.
Block 15 Brewing: Fuzzy Wuzzy
berliner/farmhouse hybrid with brett and peaches, briefly aged in 2nd run Gin barrels.

De Garde Brewing: Vielle Peche
Deschutes Brewery: Peach Slap
Originally created for the Portland Fruit Beer Fest, brewed again due to popular demand!A crisp, tart, Belgian ale brewed with juniper berries and pink peppercorn. The addition of house made peach and habanero syrup rounds out this light and refreshing beer with a little subtle heat.
Dogfish Head: Festina Peche
A refreshing neo Berliner-Weisse.
Served as an apertif or summertime quencher, Festina is delicately hopped and has a pale straw color. To soften the intense sourness, Berliner Weisse is traditionally served with a dash of essence of woodruff or raspberry syrup. In Festina Peche, since the natural peach sugars are eaten by the yeast, the fruit complexity is woven into both the aroma and the taste of the beer so there is no need to doctor it with woodruff or raspberry syrup. Just open and enjoy!
Elysian Brewing: Depeche Mode Dry Hopped Peach Sour
This melody maker of Lactobacillus, combined with Peach Purée and Citra hops, brings the new wave synth to your palate. Meanwhile, pale, white wheat, and rye malts gets the balance right. Trust us – you just can’t get enough. 10.3 OG, 14 IBUs, 4% abv

Oakshire Brewing: Peach Reunification
Reunification Berlinner Weisse aged on fresh peaches for one month. 4.5%
Upright Brewing: Fantasia batch 4
It differs from previous batches in that we blended 80% beer aged one year on oak with 20% beer aged two years (from batch 3). I feel like we got extra depth from having two different peach varieties and different aging times, so even though we haven’t really tasted the truly finished beer yet, I think it’s going to be a great batch based on samples. Abv is 5.75%
