The Brew (July 2009)
Full Sail Brewing LTD 03
As the newest creation from Full Sail Brewing, LTD 03’s name has a double meaning: limited edition and Live the Dream. The pilsner-style lager, pale golden in color and featuring a spicy floral hope aroma and a malty medium body, captured the brewers’ dream of creating unique beers that celebrate creativity and brewing heritage. LTD 03 is available in six packs and on draft until September.

Black Butte XXI
To celebrate Deschutes Brewery’s 21st birthday, the brewery is releasing a limited batch of Black Butte XXI — a doubled-up, barrel-aged version of Deschutes’ flagship ale, Black Butte Porter. Brewers added Theo’s Chocolate cocoa nibs from Seattle, dry-hopped it with 100 pounds of Bellatazza’s locally roasted coffee, and then aged some of it in Stranahan’s Colorado whiskey barrels. XXI will be available on tap and in wax-dipped,
22-ounce bottles starting June 27.

Samuel Adams OctoberFest
Beginning in August, Samuel Adams OctoberFest will be available from The Boston Beer Co. Five roasts of barley are combined to create a harmony of flavors including caramel and toffee that are balanced with the bitterness of Bavarian Noble hops. Rich, deep, golden amber in color, Samuel Adams OctoberFest transitions patrons from the lighter beers of summer to the heartier winter brews.
