The Commons Brewery is releasing Trillium, the next edition of their Beetje Series of small batch beers. Sour beer fans should take special note, as this looks promising! Check out the details in the news release below.
In addition, Josh from The Commons told me that Trillium was aged in Pinot Noir wine barrels for 12 - 18 months. The brewery will have about 60 cases available for sale beginning tomorrow (July 3) at 5pm.
July 3 update: I visited The Commons and tasted Trillium during the release event. I love sour beers and it did not disappoint!

The Commons Brewery Releases Trillium
Portland, OR – The Commons Brewery will be releasing Trillium, a new sour farmhouse ale as part of the Beetje Series on Thursday, July, 3rd at 5:00pm at the brewery Tasting Room.
Trillium is a dry hopped blend of wine barrel aged farmhouse ales fermented with our house farmhouse yeast, multiple strains of Brettanomyces and our house lactobacillus culture. The 50/50 blend is composed of a version of Urban Farmhouse ale in barrels with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis and multiple house grown cultures and a kettle soured farmhouse ale aged in barrels with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis and Brettanomyces Lambicus. The blend was then dry hopped with whole leaf Meridian hops.
Trillium will be available in 750ml capped bottles for $15 per bottle and will be available on draft as well in limited quantities the day of the release. The beautiful label art was once again created by Adam Burke, brother of Head Brewer Sean Burke. More information about Adam Burke’s art can be found at http://www.nightjarillustration.com.
The Beetje Series is a celebration of The Commons Brewery’s nano roots. First brewed in 2010 on a one-barrel system in Mike Wright’s garage, these small batch beers pay homage to the rustic brewery that continues to inspire us.
The Commons Brewery opened in December 2011 and crafts small batch, approachable and balanced beers inspired by European brewing tradition and Northwest-grown ingredients. The tasting room is located at: 1810 SE 10th Avenue, Unit E (entrance on SE Stephens between 10th & 11th). Tasting room hours are Thursday 5-9pm, Friday 5-9pm, Saturday 2-9pm, and Sunday 2-6pm.
