In all, well over 100 beers will be poured at this year’s Belgianfest.

Tickets are on sale now. Below, the list of breweries and the beers they’ll pour. See our previous post for more details about the event. 

American Brewing Company

1) Fall Harvest Sour

This beer is our sour biere de garde brewed with barley, oats, wheat and rye. It pours a deep red color with a nice beige head. Aromas of sour cherries, spice and citrus come forward as you raise the glass to your nose. A medium bodied beer with flavors of rye spice and sour cherries that finishes smooth with a silky mouthfeel given by the oats. 6.8% ABV / 20 IBU

2) Fireside Farmhouse

Our Fireside Farmhouse ale is a combination of a Belgian saison and a winter warmer. It pours dark brown with a slight red hue and a thin tan head. Aromas of cocoa and sour cherry abound from the glass. Roasty flavors meld perfectly with the spice of the rye and tart fruitiness from our signature yeast blend. Moderately high carbonation dances across your palate leaving you with a mouthful of spice and tart fruity flavors. 7% ABV / 26 IBU

Anacortes Brewery

1) Solstice Sour

Our rare dark, barrel aged sour will grace your palette with delicate prune notes, subdued chocolate flavor, grippy tannins and an effervescent tart plum aroma. Pairing suggestions include dark chocolate, cherries and goat cheese. We’re not afraid of the dark. 4.8% ABV

2) Brett IPA

Our inaugural “wild” ale is dry and crisp from secondary barrel fermentation with Brettanomyces. This unique session IPA has a hoppy aroma that combines citrus, leather and a slight barnyard funk while delivering a delicately bitter finish. Celebrate bacteria – it’s the only culture some people have! 5.8 % ABV

Aslan Brewing Company

1) Belgian Blonde

Belgian Blonde dry hopped with Nelson Sauvign and grapefruit peels. 6% ABV / 18 IBU

2) Barrel Project #2

Barrel project 2 is a blend of 75% American lager 25% red saison finished in a Hungarian oak barrel for 10 months with Brettanomyces Lambicus. 5.4% ABV / 16 IBU

Beardslee Public House

1) Widow Maker Wit

Widow Maker Wit Light, crisp & refreshing Belgian style wit. Flavored with orange peel & coriander. This wheat ale is a 400-year-old beer style that died out in the 1950’s; it was later revived by Pierre Celis at Hoegaarden, and has grown steadily in popularity over time. Wit means “white”, a name that describes the beer’s pale color and cloudy appearance. “Widow Maker” is a logging term meaning a loose limb that may fall on a logger and make that loggers spouse a widow. 5.5% ABV / 28 IBU

2) Dubbel Cut Saw

Our Dubbel is complex rich and malty. The Belgian yeast provides aromas of savory spice and dried fruit. We aged this in a Mark Ryan Winery french oak merlot barrel for 3 months with black mission figs and golden raisins. “Dubbel (Double) Cut Saw” is a type of saw that has cutting teeth on both sides. 8.6% ABV / 20 IBU

Big Al Brewing

1) Time Capsule March ’15

A barrel-aged 4-grain Petit Saison, a classic table beer originating in the farmhouses of Belgium, meant to be consumed during a hard day of work in the field. Light bodied, packed with flavor and supremely sessionable. 3.5% ABV

2) Time Capsule August ’08

This unique beer commemorates the opening of Big Al Brewing in August, 2008. A fractionally blended sour brown ale, this one of a kind beer has been growing with Big Al Brewing since day one. We’ve blended our favorite batches of beer with our house sour culture and aged the mixture for over 7 years in stainless steel.

Black Raven Brewing Company

1) Raven De Garde

Strong Pale with Brettanomyces. This Northern France inspired strong pale hybrid has gone through a seven-month secondary fermentation with the “wild” yeast strain brettanomyces lambicus, then dry hopped in order to meld bright fresh hop aroma and accent with aged wild yeast character. Pear and citrus hops play with tropical fruit, smooth earth, and light hay flavors from the wild yeast. 7.4% ABV

2) Corvus Frambicus 2015 Vintage

American Raspberry Sour. This pours bright and red with strong raspberry and mature soured notes on the nose. It drinks crisp and dry with a slight ‘raspberry hard candy’ note on the front. This soon gives way to a huge acid content which pushes the edge of comfort on the back of the palate. The finish is surprisingly clean and lingering. The base was brewed back in 2012 and soured using one of our two house sour strains, “Angelica”, which we grew up from wild bacteria and yeasts native to the Skagit valley. Copious amounts of local, seasonal and farm direct raspberries were harmed year after year in the making of this beer. 5.6% ABV / 9 IBU

Boundary Bay Brewery

1) Wonderland (2013 Batch):

The beer is a moderate golden-orange color with a fine, clean, off-white head that laces elegantly in the glass. Flaked wheat and pilsner malts enhance the head retention and body; while the use of acidulated malt, proper yeast handling, and high carbonation result in a deliciously crisp, refreshing warm-weather beer with a definite citrus-like tang! With subtle-to-moderate Belgian-yeast aromas of clove, complex fruit esters, and mellow herbal, earthy, and peppery flavor undertones. 8.5% ABV

2) Not Shawn’s Saison:

A balanced, dry, crisp, and memorable beer, inspired by Belgian Farmhouse saisons This Saison is bright as crystal and provides a sun-kissed straw/golden color. Given a little extra time in during the fermentation process to allow the free-rise ferment (no temperature control) to work it’s magic. Very subtle notes lemon and melon create refined aromas similar to a French-inspired Saison. Though subtle the Tardif noble hops harmonize with local Alba malt from Skagit Valley Malting. Flavors of white pepper, melon and tangy pear are prevalent upon first taste. 5.5% ABV

Diamond Knot Craft Brewing

1) The Binnacle

A Light Belgian-Style Ale. Pours golden yellow with a spicy aroma. Subtle flavors of honey and cloves. Finish is light with a slightly dry sweetness. 5.5% ABV / 20 IBU

Dru Bru Brewery & Tap Room

2) Summit – Belgian Pale Ale

A light bodied, bronze colored, session ale with flavors of pear, apple and mild pepper. A Belgian Abbey yeast, first cultivated by Trappist Monks, produces a complex blend of fruit ester and mild phenolic flavors to create a refreshing and unique summer beer experience.

2) Sour Weisse

Touched by lactobacillus through a traditional souring process where we let this naturally occurring bacteria – found on all barley – have free reign of the wort before we boil it and ferment with our house yeast. This all-natural process lowers the pH of the wort giving it a pleasant tartness. We then ferment out any residual sugars with our house yeast so the beer finishes dry and delicious. 4.0% ABV

Georgetown Brewing

This effervescent beer was fermented cold to suppress a heavy Belgian character, resulting in a light bodied, dry ale. Citrus aromas come from the addition of orange peel and coriander, and the spicy, bitter from Equinoz and Sterling hops. 8.6% ABV

Odin Brewing

2) Thor’s Sunstone

Tripel. The Viking’s sunstone was a calcite crystal used to help locate the sun even in the cloudy northern seas. Artfully crafted and deviously strong, Sunstone Tripel effervesces with white peach, tangerine and clove flavors and is a worthy reward for any storm-drenched Viking’s homecoming. 7.9% ABV

An unrestrained wild ale in every aspect! This one is a Belgian-style witbier we aged in a red wine barrel for 18 months, along with a touch of Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus to give it something special. A little bit of funk and tartness accentuate the citrus, spice, and wheat, which makes for an incredibly complex yet still refreshing ale! 5.4% ABV / 18 IBU

A unique style, brewed with Trappist yeast, this beer brings together the spicy and fruity notes of a hefty quadrupel with the dark and chocolatey flavors of a classic stout.

3) Ursus Spelaeus

Named for a long extinct Russian Cave Bear, Ursus Spelaeus is as deep and dark as the caves its namesake inhabited. Spelaeus has thick, rich maltiness with notes of chocolate, coffee, toffee, and subtle licorice in the nose and on the tongue with just enough hops to keep it balanced. The Belgian yeast strain adds touches of fruit, herbs, and spices.

4) Entendez Noel – Macallan Barrel aged

Like most big Belgian holiday beers, Noel is bursting with subtly complex flavors and fits no particular beer style. Its explosion of sensations comes from just Belgian Pilsner malt, cane sugar, Motueka hops, Trappist yeast, water, and fermentation.
