Kells Brewpub is celebrating its second year of brewing with a party for all this Friday. There will be two special tappings at 6pm:
Kells Barrel Aged Red: The brewers took their Kells Irish Red Ale and barrel aged it for many months in Bull Run Distillery whiskey barrels. Honey and vanilla notes of whiskey dance in your mouth with the light toffee and red fruits of the ale. 5% ABV
Billy Ray Citrus CDSL: Billy Ray Citrus merges the dark roasty richness of a stout with the smooth, easy taste of a session lager. Two-row, caramel, carafa II (dehusked black malt) and Vienna malts are balanced by Northern Brewer, Hallertauer, Mt. Hood and Saaz hops, a great blend of the traditional European noble hops with the freshness of the Northwest. Fermented with lager yeast at room temperature gives this beer its fruity esters and a mild green-apple aroma.
Live music will start at 9pm.
Kells Brewpub is located at 210 NW 21st Ave. Kells Brewery features a 10-barrel stainless steel brewhouse made locally by Metalcraft Fabrication. The brewery houses six 10-BBL fermenters, two 20-BBL fermenters, one bright tank, and a centrifugal filter from Pall Corporation to filter the Lager.
Kells Brew Pub is open to all ages seven days a week from 11:30am to close Tuesday through Friday, 9am to close on weekends, and 4pm to close on Monday. For more information, visit www.kellsbrewpub.com or call 503-719-7175.
