OROVILLE — Nearly two months after opening the new restaurant and stage, Feather Falls Casino Brewery is now serving its own microbrews.
While the casino could serve beer made by others, it had to wait for a separate state permit to serve its own brews. On Wednesday, brewmaster Roland Allen announced the seven-ale lineup is finally being served.
Allen, who worked previously for Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., among others, helped develop the recipes for the new brews, which include:
* Maidu Pale Ale, a full-bodied American pale ale;
* Coyote Spirit, a light-bodied amber ale;
*Broken Arrow, a dark ale with hints of chocolate;
* Feather Falls Thunder, a creamy, sweet apricot wheat ale;
* Naughty Native, a bold, hoppy American India pale ale;
*Blackjack Brew, a sweet stout with cocoa and coffee scents;
*Dancing Trees, a spicy, crispy Hefeweizen unfiltered blond ale.
The ales are available by pitcher, pint or seven-glass sampler.
The brews were named in part by members of the tribe, the Concow-Maidu of Mooretown Rancheria, which owns the casino and brewery.
The brewery was the result of an $8 million expansion and remodel of a portion of the casino. The restaurant opened in early December, but the quest for the permit pushed back the brews” introduction.
