Deschutes Brewery is joining the low-carb, light lager market with its latest year-round canned beer: Da Shootz! The beer has been available on draft for a short while already and cans are hitting the market; on Friday I received two from the brewery. Think “lifestyle lager” along the lines of …

According to Jay Brooks, today is something called “Prohibition Remembrance Day” which is the day in 1919 that the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, which caused national prohibition to go into effect starting in 1920. Raise a beer today in defiance of Prohibition! And here’s the Ore

Portland-based Cascade Brewing has released its 2019 beer calendar, featuring a lineup of eight core releases throughout the year, along with three collaboration brews and seasonal draft-only releases.

Recently Ooligan Press sent me an advance review copy of The Widmer Way, the new forthcoming book by Portland beer writer Jeff Alworth. I read the book over the holidays and found it to be a relatively quick and enjoyable read. I’ll start with full disclosure: I’ve known Jeff Alworth …

Portland’s Breakside Brewery might take the cake for Oregon’s most overachieving brewing company, evident in the brewery’s just-released 2019 beer calendar (which of course, doesn’t account for the dozens of pub-only beers that will be released). In addition to the IPAs, strong ales, and sours, I&

Late last week the newest seasonal bottled beer from Hood River’s Double Mountain Brewery arrived: Brut IPA. It’s available in the brewery’s refillable 500ml bottles and I have to say it’s the most elegant packaging of the various brut IPA’s I’ve seen so far. It’s also the first

Bend’s GoodLife Brewing announced today the addition of two new year-round releases for the new year: Sippy Cup Hazy Pale Ale and Bavarian Lager, both coming to draft. This is notable as there were only four year-round beers prior, I believe (though there are a number of seasonals). I’m always …

Deschutes Brewery celebrates its thirtieth anniversary this year, and while much has changed in the past three decades, the annual release of its winter ale, Jubelale, remains a comforting constant.

Back in mid-November I received the Contrarium two-pack from Silver Moon Brewing, a pair of barrel-aged, Brettanomyces-tempered blonde ales. The conceit behind the packaging is that one bottle represents the beer aged only in Chardonnay wine barrels, while the other was aged in a combination of Cabernet, Syrah, and

Today’s Advent beer pick comes to us from Detroit, Michigan, home of Atwater Brewery, which originally focused on brewing German-style lagers but now has a wide variety of ales in the lineup.
