Full Sail

Full Sail Pub Ale Series

A Rotating Series of Ales Previously Enjoyed Only by Guests at the Brewery

NOW SERVING: Extra Special Bitter (ESB)

A medium bodied ale with caramel complexity and a crisp finish.

LIMITED EDITION ALE - AVAILABLE FOR 90 DAYS ONLY
APRIL TO JUNE

The telltale signs of Spring arrive in the Gorge as mountain bikers begin to replace snowboarders and the snow melt feeds the rivers as white water rafters and kayakers anticipate the first runs of the year. Flowers cover the mountain meadows and blooms fill the orchards in the valley. Our pub staff knows that our ESB will be just the right beer to welcome Spring in the Gorge. ESB is a traditional ale brewed with attention to balance, highlighting both malt and hops. A combination of crystal malts give this beer its orange hue, and caramel complexities. UK and US Challenger hops were used exclusively throughout. Aromas of dry caramel and herbs are followed by a malty, medium bodied palate finishing with caramel flavors and a crisp bitterness. ABV 6.5% IBU 35

ABOUT THE PUB SERIES:

Anyone lucky enough to stop for a pint at our Pub in Hood River, Oregon, will tell you: It’s a spectacular place to share a beer with friends.

We can offer you a taste of our pub in this rotating series of classic ales previously enjoyed only by our guests at the brewery. Each selection will be available for only 90 days before the next gets its turn to shine. Just like each epic season in the Gorge.  Enjoy. – The Full Sail Crew

WHAT'S NEXT IN PUB SERIES

English Pale Ale - A thirst quenching copper ale with light malty flavor and mild hop character.

Summer in the Gorge might just be our favorite season because our pub deck, overlooking the mighty Columbia, provides the best view in town. Sailboarders and kiteboarders skip across the river using brightly colored sails, while whitecaps and mountains provide the backdrop for the perfect beer to raise a glass with friends. English Pale is a traditional copper ale with flavors of toast, light caramel and a mild hop finish. This thirst quenching pale ale is brewed with a blend of crystal and 2 row pale malts. Willamette and Golding hops provide a slightly fruity note to round out the light malty flavor.
AVAILABLE FOR 90 DAYS ONLY - JULY TO SEPTEMBER
ABV 5.0% IBU 30

Wassail Winter Ale
- This holiday treat is deep mahogany in color, has a full malty body and a pleasantly hoppy finish.

A few unmistakable signs tell us when winter has arrived here in Hood River. The waterfalls in the Gorge start kicking out the jams. The snow report for the backcountry regains its hold over us. And the Wassail starts flowing once again. We’ve brewed Wassail every holiday season since 1988, and it’s now as much a part of the festivities as sharing a roaring fire with our closest family and friends.

It's no wonder this multi-medal winning Winter Warmer is one of our favorite beers to brew. Choosing our ingredients for Wassail is like taking time to choose the perfect gift. Each year we carefully select the best hops and malts to brew this special beer. This year’s Wassail is brewed with a range of caramel malts and dark chocolate malts giving it a deep mahogany color and a full malty body. We used a blend of Pacific Northwest hops for a pleasant hoppy aroma and finish creating a deliciously balanced beer that appeals to both hop and malt lovers alike. In other words, a Christmas miracle.
AVAILABLE FOR 90 DAYS ONLY - OCTOBER TO DECEMBER
ABV 7.2% IBU 56

Nut Brown Ale -
A smooth, malty & easy drinking dark beer.

After a long day on the mountain carving turns in deep powder, snowboarders and skiers make their way down the mountain to warm up and relive all those great runs in our pub. Our British style nut brown ale helps fuel the stories of deep powder and epic yard sales. The combination of 2 row pale, crystal and chocolate malts impart an array of malt and chocolate flavors in a medium bodied ale with an extremely smooth palate. Fuggle and Mt.Hood hops contribute a slightly spicy aroma and finish to complement this beer’s malt character.
AVAILABLE FOR 90 DAYS ONLY - JANUARY TO MARCH
ABV 6.0% IBU: 31
