Beer By Angela

Upright Brewing Company Six

I love rye.  Rye bread, rye whiskey, and rye beer.  We have an excellent rye beer made in Texas called Real Ale Full Moon Pale Rye which tends to be a standard go to for me.  So I was excited to come across this in a grocery store in Portland, OR.  Upright Brewing is all about farmhouse inspired beers using saison yeast and Northwestern ingredients.  The beers are numbered based on their starting gravity (pre-fermentation sugar content) in Belgian brewing degrees.  The Six displays abundant rye spice characteristics along with some bubble gum derived from open fermentation.  It has a dry refreshing finish and me eager to try their other beers.
