    3 Notion Fridays

    We're kicking off the new year with a rad event later this month.
    Be sure to check it out below!
    Here are your 3 Notions for this week...

    Quadruple Can Release!!

    Ledge Bier
    We are excited to head into 2020 with a new flagship beer in the lineup! Ledge Bier Pilsner is made with Saaz and Hallertau hops along with Barke and Pilsner malts. It’s clean, crisp, and crushable. $15/4pack

    Apricult
    We gathered around the cauldron with our friends at Brujos Brewing to bring you this enchanting beverage. This sour IPA was fermented with Apricot and Tangerine and dry hopped with Citra hops. $20/4pack (7.8% abv, single batch)

    Steady Mobbin
    Made in collaboration with our homies at Claim 52 Brewing, we loaded this IPA with Peach, Pineapple, Mango, and Passionfruit. *contains milk sugar $20/4pack (7% abv, single batch)

    Mandala
    This hazy IPA is packed with a unique blend of Nelson, Strata, and Galaxy Southern hemisphere hops. $18/4pack (7.2% abv, single batch)

    New on Tap at Alberta


    Oatmeal Crumble
    Brewed with hand toasted oats, Pilsner malt, and a touch of wheat, Oatmeal Crumble was conditioned on organic cinnamon, almonds, Madagascar vanilla beans, and a generous dry hop of 3+ lbs per barrel.

    Seekers and Finders
    We came across a unique Southern hemisphere hop which has yet to be named. The aroma reminded us of a classic West Coast IPA, so obviously we had to try it out. When it comers to hops, we'll always be a Seeker and every once in awhile... we find what we're looking for.

    I tried Dogfish Head Beer For Breakfast made with pork scrapple, maple syrup, roasted chicory, coffee, applewood smoked barley and lactose and I thought it was surprisingly tasty. So I guess I’m adventurous. But for some reason, Oink! doesn’t sound as appetizing.

    A few years ago I tried Captain Beef Heart, the Upright / Burnside collab which had charred beef hearts in the boil. So the bacon in Oink! doesn't throw me that much.

    Full disclosure: I trust Upright more than I trust Great Notion.

    Also: You tried a beer made with scrapple? Ain't no doubt in my mind that's adventurous.

    Trying some Oink right now. Mehhhh.... It's not awful, but I wouldn't want to order a large glass of it. The bacon flavor is very prominent, and doesn't seem to blend in all that well with the base stout. Would give it an A for innovation and creativity, and a C- for execution.

    Segway Dance Party (7% abv)

    Envisioning a dance party where everyone is atop a two-wheeled personal transportation device is silly and will likely bring a smile to your face. Dry-hopping Segway Dance Party with over 7 lbs. per barrel of Simcoe, Citra, and Motueka was also silly, but sipping the outcome brings a smile to our faces.

    Berry Pusher (5.4% abv)
    Fermented with flaked oats, buckets of wildflower honey, strawberry, and blueberry puree, this sour will have you coming back for more.

    A Brief History (6.8% abv)

    This IPA was fermented with a blend of 3 Kveik yeast strains (pronounced “kuh-vike”) and was dry hopped with 100% Citra hops. This yeast originated in Norway and was passed down from generation to generation within the family, and also shared among fellow brewers in the region. Thanks to Portland's Imperial Yeast Co, we are able to share this unique IPA with you.

    That was a very limited special release for their 60th Anniversary. I don’t think they will ever release anything like that again. Beer was probably one of their best ever. As for the party thanks for the tips this is exactly what I was looking for. I love great beer, but I love a good party more so green beer it is!

    New Beer

    Pineapple Pillows
    NE IPA
    6.75% abv

    Pillows made of pineapple probably wouldn’t be very cuddly but they sound delicious! We added pineapple during every part of the brewing process then dry hopped with Motueka and Sabro for a soft yet assertive hop flavor. Available now at Alberta and Beaverton.

    Frenched Toast 2017
    Imperial Stout
    11% abv

    Old beer, but freshly tapped at NW! This throwback collab with Horus Aged Ales is an imperial breakfast stout brewed with cinnamon, maple syrup, and vanilla beans that were aged on Pappy Van Winkle bourbon. Notes of brown sugar, boozy vanilla, and a hint of spice. This is the last keg of its kind, so come by for a pour before it is gone forever. Only at NW.

    COVID-19

    We know Coronavirus is at the forefront of everyone's mind right now, and we want to assure our guests that we have upped our already rigorous hygiene and sanitation practices in accordance with CDC recommendations. As of now, we are operating as usual, so come by for a beer! If you do decide to self-quarantine, make sure to stock up on cans for the duration (you can always check our pub IG stories for up-to-date availability). Most importantly, use your best judgement to stay safe and healthy.





    Cheers,
    GNB Fam

    Current Friday update (3/20/20)

    3 Notion Fridays

    Happy Friday, everyone!
    We hope you're hanging in there in these crazy times!
    Here's how to stay safe, sane, and hydrated in your 3 Notions for this week...

    [​IMG]

    Stay Safe

    We know there is an abundance of information out there already on how to stay safe during this time. We encourage you to stay informed and practice safe habits for your own protection and the well being of the community. The CDC and WHO have helpful up-to-date information available on their websites.

    As a brewery, safety and sanitation are always a priority for us and we're taking extra precautions and measures right now.

    Our taprooms are closed to dine-in services and we're using this time to make sure everything is sanitized and squeaky clean for when we can welcome you all back!

    If you're coming in to pick up to go beer, remember we are not accepting cash at this time and offering extra virtual high fives to those that bring in their own pens to sign those credit card receipts!

    Stay safe and wash those hands, fam!

    Stay Thirsty

    Thank you all for continuing to support us during this time by buying to go beer. We know there are so many local businesses in need of your support right now and it does not go unnoticed that we have some of the most loving and loyal beer fans out there.

    There is plenty of beer to go in both 16oz cans and 32 oz crowlers (special 3 for $30 right now) at all three locations and we plan to stay open for takeaway from 12-7pm everyday as long as possible. To go options and limits are posted daily to Instagram stories on @greatnotionalberta @greatnotionnw and @greatnotionbeaverton

    Next week we plan to drop Luminous 06, a rainbow sherbet inspired take on the Luminous series! Along with the beer we'll be selling Luminous skateboard decks with the dope Luminous artwork from Chad Eaton (@timberps). We are also planning on releasing a fresh batch of Blueberry Muffin so it's going to be a tasty week! Plans for Saturday releases will continue to be suspended for the time being so you can come pick up these new releases any day of the week once released.

    It goes without saying these are uncertain times and the above information could change. We will do our best to keep you all informed through Instagram and Facebook of any changes. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for your continued patience, love, and support. We feel it.

    Stay safe, sane, and thirsty!

    Catch a Flight with Pauly

    The latest episode of Catch a flight with Pauly is now available on our IGTV and YouTube. On this week’s episode we are joined by personal trainers Evan and Laura from Vive Fitness here in Portland, and they give us some tips on having balance in your life, making time to work out as self-care, and how to get rid of that beer belly! Evan and Laura show us some great exercises using little to no equipment so you can try it at home while we’re all quarantined. *DISCLAIMER: we filmed this a couple weeks ago when social distancing wasn’t what it is now and gyms were open.

    Stay safe, sane, and thirsty!

    Greetings all! So it looks like Blueberry Muffin is available on Tavour. I loved it when I visited the taproom last summer.

    My question is: how long does this beer last and still taste good? This batch was canned on March 3rd and the earliest I would get it is middle of April. I probably also wouldn’t drink through all cans right away. So would 2-3 months on it still be fine?

    I've had cans that were well past a month old, and I don't recall much difference in taste. I would assume the blueberry taste would start to fade sitting too long. I know their maple syrup beers don't age very well.

    Anyone tried Laid Off Logger yet? I'm curious how much they're charging for it when I can already get some great pilsners from Von Ebert and Wayfinder.

    New to the area and excited to pick up GN more frequently but had a quick question for those in the know. On IG they usually note Single Batch or Double batch, does that just refer to the quantity brewed or are they doing anything different with the beer? Over Ripe recently said 7% double batch but I googled Ripe and it is also 7% so I am thinking it is probably just that they made more.

    Just refers to the quantity brewed.
