SIGNATURE BEERS

INDIA PALE ALE

DRAFT & 500ML : 5.8% ABV 

Carefully crafted to fully express its curated hops and yeasts, Ferment India Pale Ale brings the hops without being buried by bitterness. The biscuity, lightly sweet malts and fruity, dry yeast notes impart an herbaceous aroma to give the ale a complex nose of peach, tangerine, and red cedar.

PALE ALE

DRAFT & 500ML : 4.8% ABV

Ferment Pale Ale is inspired by the brewing traditions of Burton-on-Trent at the turn of the 19th century. Heirloom malted barley and hop varieties come together with a specially sourced English ale yeast to produce a result that is crisp and refreshing, featuring a complex depth of character with notes of tea, marmalade, and a hint of rose.

WOODSMAN PORTER

DRAFT & 500ML : 5.6% ABV

Ferment Woodsman Porter   embodies the spirit of Ferment. Malts from England, Belgium, Germany, and Chile come together in a mash imparting a rich, fruity character.

FermentsBrewing_ProductShots_Calisch_WEB

DRY STOUT

NITRO DRAFT & 500ML : 4.5% ABV 

Ferment Dry Stout embodies the spirit of the extremely quaffable, midnight-black ales of Dublin. A pale mash and unique black sparge technique imparts a gentle acidity to the beer along with a clean, delicate roast character in this surprisingly refreshing dark ale.

FermentsBrewing_ProductShots_Calisch_WEB

ESB

DRAFT & 500ML : 5.4% ABV 

Ferment ESB Extra Special Bitter is almost paradoxically complex. Rich flavors and aromas are complimented by a clean, dry finish that makes it a perfect pair with a wide range of foods. Yes, you have permission to have another.

BOTTLE CONDITIONED BEERS

BDG.jpg

BIÈRE DE GARDE

DRAFT & 500ML BOTTLE CONDITIONED : 5.8% ABV 

OBA2020_Bronze_transparent.png

A farmhouse ale styled after the traditional brews of the Pas de Calais and Nord regions of France. Our Bière De Garde is brewed with malts from France, Germany, and England and utilizes hops from throughout Europe to provide balance and present a delicate spicy / herbal character. It is then fermented with our wild yeast from the slopes of Mount Hood producing un véritable terroir.

WRS.jpg

WHITE RIVER SAISON

DRAFT & 500ML BOTTLE CONDITIONED : 5% ABV 

White River Saison follows the tradition of small farmhouse breweries of Wallonia. We combine malts and hops from the Belgian, French, and German and fermented yeast captured from the wind on the slopes of Mt. Hood to create an ale that is refreshing and complex.

The Sentinel -website.jpg

THE SENTINAL

DRAFT & 500ML BOTTLE CONDITIONED : 5.3% ABV 

The Sentinel mixed culture Saison was first fermented with our own yeast strain isolated from the wild on Mt. Hood. It then spent the better part of a year in French oak wine barrels where Brettanomyces was allowed to develop. Finally, a charge of Doug Fir tips handpicked from the forest surrounding Hood River was added to create an ale mildly sour and wildly complex.

IMPERIAL STOUT

PREMIUM BARREL AGED

500ML : 11% ABV 

Originally crafted by English Brewers for the Russian Czar, it is the bold monarch of craft beer styles. This rendition has notes of coffee, dried fruits, juicy berries, leather, and oak.

BARLEYWINE

PREMIUM BARREL AGED

500ML : 11% ABV 

Brewed with a blend of seven different malt varieties from England and aged for a year in French oak wine barrels, Barleywine Ale explores deep layers of dried fruit and toffee.

L'OR DE NOIR

PREMIUM BARREL AGED

500ML : 11% ABV 

What happens when you cellar a French farmhouse ale in red wine barrels? The result is a far from ordinary ale. This “Gold of Black” ale, a collaboration with Idiot's Grace Winery, seeks to recreate the lost character of the original Bière de Garde style described in L’ Industrie de la Brasserie from 1880 as a “highly special brew... with a very vinous flavor”.

WHACK & PEEL STOUT

FARM TO MARKET SERIES

PREMIUM BARREL AGED

500ML : 11% ABV

SULTANA IPA

DRAFT & 16OZ CANS : 6.9% ABV 

The newly released Sultana Hop variety and El Dorado Hop Hash have joined forces to dominate this Northwest-style IPA with a powerful blend of citrus, pineapple, and dank herbal hoppiness.

A NOBLE LOOSE OBJECTIVE

UNFILTERED HOPPY LAGER

DRAFT & 16OZ CANS : 5% ABV 

While lagers tend to be seen as cold and restrained, Loose Objective has adopted some contemporary ale-brewing techniques to loosen things up. Using a cool whirlpool and dry hopping with a mix of noble hops from Germany, this unfiltered brew brings some extra chill to our lager offerings.  

GALAXY IN A CAN

DOUBLE IPA

16OZ CANS : 8% ABV 

Best experienced with your eyes closed. Galaxy in a Can brings the mindblowing wonder of Galaxy hops from Australia.  Bold yet refreshing with a touch of haze, an initial blast herbal notes gives way to a swell of passionfruit and guava.  

VIENNA-STYLE LAGER

DRAFT & 16OZ CANS : 5.4% ABV 

Rich in color from Vienna Malts, this lager is slightly sweet but brings the hop flavor with only a touch of bitterness.

BRIGHT WEST IPA

DRAFT & 16OZ CANS : 6.5% ABV 

Celebrating the most iconic beer style to emerge from the Great American West, Ferment Bright West IPA loads Chinook, Crystal, Mosaic, and Cascade hops into a brew of fossil-fuel free pilsner malt. Bright West is then filtered to the brilliance of a perfect Pacific Sunset. The result is a quite dry bright golden ale supporting a thick head of foam, rich with the pine and citrus best enjoyed with good friends and an adventurous spirit.

_z1a2496-edit.jpg

HELLES BOCK

DRAFT & 16OZ CANS : 6.9% ABV 

As the days become cooler and shorter this golden German-style lager offers a warm depth of imported malts balanced by peppery notes of noble Tettnanger and Saaz hops.

Dan Peterson 2.jpg

Growing up in Vermont, Dan Peterson spent nearly as much time in the woods as anywhere else. An interest in life sciences led to a curiosity of the phenomena of cell biology. Dan studied Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at The University of Vermont to stoke that curiosity. Upon completion of his degree, Dan remained at the University as a lab tech studying novel breast cancer treatment strategies.  

As long days in the lab began to lose their luster and a seemingly harmless hobby of home brewing began occupying his headspace Dan left on a solo cross-country road trip and returned determined to be a brewer of great beer. He and his high school sweetheart, Jenn, packed up their things, said goodbye to their hangout, an art studio turned brew space in an industrial part of Burlington, and hauled off to New York City to take brewing and culinary arts seriously. 

 

The following eight years saw Dan develop his brewing and beer lab-guy skills at the Brooklyn Brewery, start a family, and move to Hood River. Two and a half years each at Full Sail as a Brewer and at pFriem as Head Brewer gave him some valuable experience and friendships. Now as Brewmaster at Ferment, Dan aims to share his love for good food and drink with all.
