The Abyss Beer 2017 Reserve

Abyss BEER.jpg

A deep, dark Imperial Stout, The Abyss has almost immeasurable depth and complexity. Hints of molasses, licorice and other alluring flavors make it something not just to quaff, but contemplate.

As for the great “drink it now or let it age” debate, we stand clearly on the fence. Distinct and delicious on release, the flavors meld and fuse into an entirely different pleasure after a year or more in the cellar.

*2017 release date at our Pubs and Tasting Room in Oregon: November 17th
(Released every Nov/Dec: 2006-present)

The “remarkably limited” 100% barrel-aged variants of 2017:  The Abyss Rum and The Abyss Tequila, will be released at the above locations on December 1st.

Smithfield Ham

The flavor of southern hospitality. America's original artisan ham can only be cured within the Smithfield town limits (as decreed by law)! And the traditional handcrafting process has never changed – resulting in a superior lean ham, rich in color and robust in flavor. 


Copper & King American Brandy

copper & King.jpg

A blend of superb exclusively copper pot-distilled brandy with real character and depth of flavor mingled in a unique, modern American style. Small batch distillation of superior, highly aromatic wine selected for exceptional quality.


DogFish.jpg

Dogfish Pennsylvania Tuxedo

A spruce-infused pale ale, Pennsylvania Tuxedo pays homage to the flannel-suited hunters and gatherers who dwell deep in the backcountry of north-central PA.

Brewed in collaboration with family-run outdoor clothing company Woolrich, Pennsylvania Tuxedo is a sessionable concoction with a grassy citrus kick complemented by the resinous conifer notes of fresh green spruce tips. We went into the forests of north-central Pennsylvania and Georgetown, Del., to pick these fresh tips ourselves.

A dry yet doughy malt backbone lets the hops and spruce shine while still balancing out the bitterness, making this one an easy sipper.

A Midwinter Night's Dram

A limited release of High West Rendezvous Rye finished in French oak port barrels. 

How to Enjoy

We recommend that you enjoy this special spirit neat, due to its many layers of complexity, next to a warm fire as the snow piles up on the window sill. Also pairs beautifully with Fig Newtons!

The Name

Named after "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" by William Shakespeare.

Back Label Story

"Are you sure That we are awake? It seems to me That yet we sleep, we dream." - Demetrius, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act 4, Scene 1 - Wm. Shakespeare
Greetings good gentles and ladies. At High West, we consider whiskey an indispensable part of making it through the long cold winter. One taste of A Midwinter Night’s Dram alongside a cozy fire will surely transport you to a dreamlike state. This limited release whiskey is a sumptuous marriage of our Rendezvous Rye finished in both port and French oak barrels. The rye forms a beautiful base of vanilla, caramel and cinnamon; the port barrels enhance with plums and dried fruits; the French oak provides a spice accent. For us, A Midwinter Night’s Dram tastes like a proper Christmas plum pudding with lovely mulling spices, dried fruits, and crème anglaise. 
So join us good ladies and gents. Gather ‘mongst thy family and friends, and raise thy glass to winters that are "Swift as a shadow, short as any dream; Brief as the lightning in the collied night." - Lysander, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act 1, Scene 1, Wm. Shakespeare
Lysander describes how quickly true love can vanish. This is how we feel about a dram of this whiskey. However, if you savor it slowly, we can attest that A Midwinter Night’s Dram will help you through the coldest night. 
Fare thee well, David Perkins

tranche_de_Morbier_-_Copie_zoom.jpg

Morbier Cheese

Morbier is a semi-soft cows' milk cheese of France named after the small village of Morbier in Franche-Comté. It is ivory colored, soft and slightly elastic, and is immediately recognizable by the thin black layer separating it horizontally in the middle. It has a rind that is yellowish, moist, and leathery.

Traditionally, the cheese consists of a layer of morning milk and a layer of evening milk. When making Comté (cheese), cheesemakers would end the day with leftover curd that was not enough for an entire cheese. Thus, they would press the remaining evening curd into a mold, and spread ash over it to protect it overnight. The following morning, the cheese would be topped up with morning milk. The aroma of Morbier is strong, but the flavor is rich and creamy, with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
