Food & Cooking 2016 — photo 1 of 372: This huge 25.4 oz bottle of Six Saison Style Beer holds as much rye beer as a normal 750 ml wine bottle. That’s 3.4 oz more than the standard bomber size. Since I love the taste of rye bread and rye whiskey, and I’m always ready to taste a new beer, I decided to give rye beer a go. I stopped by Belmont Station, featuring more than 1,200 different bottles of beer. After some discussion, the helpful staff recommended this beer made by Upright Brewing right there in Portland. According to the brewer:
“Six is a dark rye saison with layered malts, pleasant stone and mineral notes, and a dry finish. Grist [malt]: pale, caramel, rye, and roasted barley. Hops: sterling.” Measurements: 6.7% ABV • 20 IBUI don’t know if I can connect very well with their description, but after some sips, my taste buds told me that I really like this beer. Too bad they only sell it in such huge bottles that cost $10. But maybe once a year I can splurge ... or else stop by their tasting room and see how much the 5 and 12 ounce portions cost. In the end, the bottle may be cheaper. April 23, 2016.
