Lowercase Brewing's first bottle release happening now
October 3, 2017 - 10:35 AM- by Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog -
For the first time ever, Lowercase Brewing is about to release its first bottled beer. This week they'll release their Red Wine Barrel-Aged sQUASH.
"The sQUASH is our normal fall seasonal and it’s basically a pumpkin beer, but instead of using pumpkin we use butternut squash because it actually tastes like something." Explains Chris Smith of Lowercase Brewing. "Then we use whole spices in the last bit of the boil to bring everything together. Drinks like a nice, rich brown ale with some vegetative and spice notes."
The beer is officially released tomorrow (Wednesday, October 4th), but early birds can get it today/tonight at the brewery's taproom in Georgetown. (The taproom is usually closed on Tuesdays.)
Description from the brewery: "Bottled in 750ml champagne bottles complete with corks and cages this highly carbonated beer spent close to 1 year lying to rest in Mercer Family Vineyards Red Wine Barrels. Dry, bubbly and heavily influenced by the wine, this is unlike any "pumpkin" beer we've ever made. Only 288 bottles were produced, so supplies will be pretty limited. We will also have samples available to try at the taproom."
