WED. NOV. 12TH from 6 to 9PM Join us as we host Natasha from Global Beer Network for a Belgian Holiday Ale Tasting. We’re opening some presents early this year including some very special kegs and fancy glassware to go with it! Natasha will be sampling from bottles of: Cognac Barrel-Aged Scotch de Silly and Piraat Triple Hop and we’ll have these amazing offerings on draft:
Gulden Draak Brewmaster’s Reserve
This Exclusive Gulden Draak combines the technology and the craftsmanship of the traditional brewing process. By letting the beer mature on Whiskey Barrels it gives it a distinguish and gentle finish that you have never tasted before. 10.5% ABV
Kasteel Winter Ale
Kasteel Winter is a unique departure from the standard Christmas ales known for their potpourri of cinnamon and clove. In fact, it stands alone as one of the most decadent and elegant Quadruples of Belgium in its own right. This 11% ABV beer pours a Chestnut brown with an off-white head. The nose is rich, with a warming scent of Coffee, Toffee, and Dried Fruits. The mouthfeel is rich and sweet like that of melted candy. The key ingredients to this delicacy is Belgian Chocolate and Coffee…noteworthy phrases in any brewers handbook. All of these elements come together to provide an after taste reminiscent of a tootsie roll.
And to cleanse your palate:
Bavik Premium Pilsner, is considered one of the best Belgian Pilsners, and is certainly one that survived the onslaught by Interbrew-Labatt, which tried, and still tries to take over as many Belgian breweries as possible, to shut them down and to stop brewing their beers.
Bavik Premium Pilsner has been brewed since the creation of the brewery in 1894. Indeed, the emergence of the Pilsner, only a few decades earlier in Bavaria and Czechia, was one of the main reasons Mr. De Brabandere started his brewery. Read about the history of the brewery on the brewery-page. The Bavik Premium Pilsner has a very strong market in the Southern part of West Flanders and in theWestern part of Northern France. This is in fact the ‘local’ market for the brewery, and this market is still growing at a healthy pace. 5% ABV

More about Jeff: Jeff’s brewing career began as many others; he loved beer and really enjoyed home brewing. As he was not satisfied at his job, he decided to leave for brew school. It was there that Jeff made friends with the current owners of GoodLife Brewing in Bend, Oregon. “They were nice enough to let me intern there for four months before I left. It was greatly needed for as they were starting to get really busy.”
Jeff Schauland attended brew school at the Siebel Institute in Chicago. There he went through a very intensive program that covered everything from malting to fermentation to the building of brewhouses. Upon graduation, Jeff went on to study at the Doemen’s Academy in Munich, Germany. There he studied under the Brewmaster of Uerige an amazing Alt brewery in Dusseldorf, Germany. This course was much more hands. Brewing, packaging, and lab work were the main focus. Following this, his class was taken to breweries throughout Germany, Austria, and Czech Republic so that they could experience how large operations work.
Upon graduation from Doemen’s, Jeff was fortunate enough to start working at GoodLife Brewing in Bend, Oregon. There he served as the Lead Brewer for about 2 1⁄2 years, which was excellent experience because he was around through a period of extremely rapid growth. He got a great deal of experience in production, ordering, shipping and receiving, bottling and canning, as well as brewery expansion. The skills that Jeff has learned at Goodlife Brewing will apply well to continue and expand the legacy of Silver Moon Brewing in Bend.
