OG: 1.065 – 1.090 FG: 1.012+
SRM: 12+ IBU: 40+
Aroma: Aroma may be of moderate to high levels of fruitiness. Banana, bubblegum esters are not appropriate. Hop aroma may range from balanced, to assertive.
Appearance: Copper to walnut brown. Copper tones may be noted. Brown and/or red colors are appropriate. Clarity medium to high.
Flavor: Medium to high caramel flavor. Hop bitterness and flavor are clearly apparent and may be moderate to high to unbelievable, but are always in balance with the malt. Old ale type fruit flavors may be present from low to high. A fresh, citrus/floral finish.
Mouth Feel: Medium to full body. Medium low to medium carbonation. Stronger versions may have a moderate alcohol warmth.
Overall Impression: These are beers with substantial flavor and body, even the ones at the bottom end of the gravity range. Hops are a main component, but there is always rich malt compliment to balance.
Drinkability is a critical component of the style. They are beers that you want more than one of, despite their size and strength.
Examples: Think Sasquatch Olde Ale, Rogue Mogul Madness.
While sponsored by the Northwest Legends Foundation, the Sasquatch Homebrewing Competition is made possible through the generosity and hard work of the Cascade Brewers Society who are organizing and producing the event. Like many professional brewers, Glen started as a homebrewer. In Eugene, he was a dedicated member of the Cascade Brewers Society. Glen always remained close to his roots as an avid supporter of homebrewers by sharing ideas, recipes, and techniques.
The Sasquatch Homebrewing Competition is a tribute to the huge impact that the homebrewing community had on Glen's life and continues to have on the craft brewing movement.
