Logsdon Farmhouse Ales Cerasus, an organic tart red ale brewed with Oregon cherries, took first in last month’s Portland Cheers to Belgian Beers Brewfest.
Cerasus eclipsed 40 other brewery entries to garner the people’s choice for the best-tasting beer at the event. The winner also picks the yeast strain(s) for in the 2013 competition.
PCTBB 2011 festival was the debut of Odell’s Logsdon Ales, where Seizoen Bretta also took first place, winning the people’s choice award in their first year.
“It has been a good start going in to our second year now winning this coveted competition back-to-back,” said master brewer Dave Logsdon.
Logsdon Seizoen, Seizoen Bretta and Kili Wit are available in stores and restaurants around the valley. Cerasus will have a limited release this summer along with Peche ‘n Brett peach beer and Far West Vlaming; an organic tart red ale brewed in the Belgian West Flanders style.
