Saraveza New Updates — Monthly Archives: 08 2014


Wednesday, August 6, 2014

  WED. AUGUST 20TH FROM 6-9PM - Claim 52’s Assistant Brewer, Joe Buppert & Sales Manager, AJ McGarry, will be in-house pouring samples and answering all questions beer!  We’ll feature several of their European inspired brews on draft, including:

-Kölsch:  Kölsch is a traditional German-style pale ale that was first coined in Cologne around the 1900s.  This German Alt style bier features prominent hops and finishes crisp, leaving hints of melon and pear.  The McKenzie River is mostly to blame for our award winning Kölsch as its mineral profile is perfect for the style.
5.2% ABV, 25 IBUs

-“Sugalumps” New Zealand IPA:  Southern Cross, Pacifica, Motueka hops and a Southern Cross/Motu Dry-hop. Tropical Fruit nose.  Medium Bitterness.  Light amber in color.  Flavors are sweet pine, citrus, and some fruity tropical notes-  passion fruit/guava.
6.3% ABV, 70 IBUs

-“Monks Brunch” Belgian Strong Ale: Complex fruity esters with a honey like sweetness, oranges and sweet candy notes. Smooth medium body with some alcohol heat.
8.3% ABV, 20 IBUs

About Claim 52: 

Established in 2012, Claim 52 specializes in small-batch European style ales such as Kolsch, brewed with a Northwest flair, as well as more familiar beers like pale ales, reds, wheats, and of course, IPAs. Their 3.5 bbl brew system is scalable so they have the flexibility to take advantage of seasonal ingredients and pilot new styles so there’s always a changing rotation at the brewery.

Hand crafted, each batch turns out a little different but is consistently tasty and delivered to fresh from the tank to the tap.  They focus on the integrity of ingredients, practicing long-standing brewing techniques and uncompromising quality to create unique, approachable and flavorful beers that pair well with great food and good friends.

Brewing just about 30 – 40 barrels a month, they are a family-based operation striving to create a genuine connection between our suppliers, customers and the establishments serving their beer.  Their beers are self-distributed, allowing direct interaction with restaurants and the ability to tailor beer styles to seasonal menus and changing customer preferences.

The name, Claim 52, refers to the pioneer land claim in south Eugene where local home-brewer Trevor Ross set up his system in his garage about five years ago.
