fermenting away!

We’re making beer! Upright Brewing Company is in full production mode right now and the photo attached to this post shows the very early stage of fermentation for batch number six as viewed from above our open top vessels. Brewer Gerritt Ill and myself began by filling thirteen used pinot noir oak barrels with two different long term projects before starting our year round brews. Look for Upright’s first farmhouse style ale to be available in most beer-centric establishments within a couple weeks and catch us at this year’s North American Organic Brewers Festival the last weekend of June where we will be pouring a hop-less spelt beer made with several different herbs and spices. We should also have our weekend tasting room open by that time as well and are looking forward to meeting more of Portland’s beer lovers in person.

Cheers!
