THE BEER HERE
IS NEAR & DEAR

Glasses full of Baerlic Beer

Literally translating to ‘of barley’ in old english, bærlic reiterates the fundamental idea that all things, no matter how complex or involved, can always be traced backward to a single, simple core or point of view.

Our point of view comes from a belief that we are all in this together and that our actions shape our world – by being honest, we are approachable; by being consistent, we are trusted; by being considerate, we can sleep at night; and by choosing to keep it simple, we are able to do this really well.

EASTSIDE

Yeast: Imperial Pilgrimage
OG: 1.058
ABV: 6.5
IBU: Enough

WHAT THE FLUFF 7.0

NW HAZY IPA

Crazy Hazy, Juicy Loosey Northwest Hazy IPA. 7.0 is brewed with loads of Centennial and Nugget hops for a depth of fruity and herbal dank flavors and aromas. What the fluffin’ fluff?

Malts: Premium 2-Row and Wheat
Hops: Centennial and Nugget
Yeast: Imperial Juice
OG: 1.061
ABV: 6.6

SHop CLASS: CENTENNIAL

SINGLE HOP IPA

Hops: Centennial
Yeast: Imperial Flagship
OG: 1.058
ABV: 6
IBU: 75

TWIN PINES

DOUBLE IPA

A big & bold double IPA so saturated with pine, stonefruit and tropical hop character that we devilishly grin when we think about how many hops were harmed in the making of this beer!

Hops: Centennial, El Dorado, Simcoe & Chinook
Yeast: Imperial Flagship
OG: 1.072
ABV: 8.1
IBU: enough

NICE & EASY

SALTED OAT GOSE

Gose (say "gose-uh") is an ancient salty & slightly sour beer originally from Leipzig, Germany. Aromas of sweet oats are complimented by a slightly tart & saline finish. Hits the spot! The Gatorade of beer!

Yeast: Imperial Independence & Lactobacillus
OG: 1.044
ABV: 4.9
IBU: 7ish

Yeast: Imperial Flagship & Pilgrimmage
OG: 1.051
ABV: 5.5
IBU: 40

ROOTYTOOTYFRESH’N’FRUITY

Malts: Best Pils, Wheat, and Bob's Raw Oats
Hops: Doesn't Matter
Yeast: Imperial Independence & Lacto 2
OG: 1.044
ABV: 4.9
IBU: 7ish

READ BETWEEN THE LINES

BRETT PALE ALE

We took our Early Bird Pale Ale and left it alone with the wild-like Brettanomyces Bruxellensis yeast for 6 months where it took over to create a really fruity and dry beer with some rustic notes.

Hops: Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial & Azacca

OG: 1.047
ABV: 5.8

BAERLIC BEERS OUT IN THE WILD

Unlike most breweries, we self-distribute our beer throughout the Portland metro area. That means that all the hard work of relationship building and maintenance (we love our accounts!), account management (staying organized) and beer delivery (actual heavy lifting) we do ourselves. We believe this keeps us more connected with the end consumer (you) and let’s us speak more clearly for ourselves. So, in addition to our taproom, you’ll find Baerlic beers at these Portland area bars, restaurants and other fine establishments.

WHAT THE HELL IS A BAERLIC?

Say bear-lick…like a bear licking the foam off a frosty mug. Etymologically, it’s an old-english adjective meaning “of barley.” As in there’s beer and then there’s baerlic beer! But feel free to use it whenever you want to describe something that you can’t get enough of. As in: “These waffles are baerlic!”

THE WHO’S WHO OF WHAT’S WHAT

Born out of an undying passion for the perfect pint of beer, Baerlic Brewing Company is a collaborative entity created by us, Ben Parsons and Richard Hall. After years of brewing on the small scale in a basement and winning numerous awards in amateur competitions all over the region, we decided that we should finally give in to the voices in our heads and move toward a small scale production brewery and taproom.

When we say The Beer Here Is Near And Dear, we mean it. We strive to work in as close a proximity as possible for all our ingredients, materials, vendors, supplies, and suppliers. And that allows us to absolutely love the beer that we brew.
