Beer Review: Firestone Walker Double DBA (Release #1)


"DDBA is our flagship beer brewed at double strength.  It is amazingly similar in many respects to our barrel fermented DBA and possesses everything we love about that beer times two.  English caramel malts lend rich toffee character that pairs well with assertive medium toast American oak barrels."

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Appearance: (4.0)
-  This beer poured a very huge light tan head that was a fluffy 2-3 fingers of thick foamy head over the top of a rather dark and ruby-like copper brew. Thin layers of creamy head reside over the brew while a medium sized ring is left. Solid.

Smell: (4.0)
- Big notes of vanilla and oak with a kiss of bourbon. It's a little hot and would be a nice aging brew. Huge sweet molasses-like malts with a caramel punch. Rather sweet. Bready notes are certainly present as well.

Taste: (3.5)
- Big sweet molasses and caramel notes with a lovely grassy and earthy hop bitterness present as this beer is fresh. Light heat flavors from the alcohol. Lovely vanilla dessert with an oak bottom. Solid brew, but for me doesn't touch a lot of other barrel aged beers. The flavors are great from the aging process, but i am not sure if the beer is.

Mouth Feel: (3.5)
- Medium bodied, slightly sticky, a nice chewy flare, and well carbonated. Curious what this would be like without the use of a standard British Ale yeast. It's not too syrupy at all from the aging which is nice. The base beer must have been. Overall not a bad feel.

Overall: (3.5)
- This beer is nice after the whole process. I doubt that I would like the base beer that much, and to be honest I don't care much for the basic DBA beer from Firestone. I find most to be too malt forward. This however is a nice dessert beer with a nice sweet touch. The malt, caramel, and vanilla is solid, but I would still like a little more bitter rather than dry heat from the alcohol... though I'm reviewing this beer a tad fresh. Got another in the cellar.

Beer Review: Mt. Hood Brewing Ice Axe IPA

"Tasting Notes:
Well balanced to allow the caramel of the malts to be up front with the subtle finish of hops added during the 120 minute boil.
Ingredients:
Malts:  Crystal, Munich, 2-Row Pale, Malted Wheat
Hops:   Centennial, Mt. Hood, Magnum, Golding, Willamette
Profile:
IBU:    60
ABV:   5.7 percent"

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Appearance: (4.0)
- This beer is mostly clear, and a nice dark caramel color. Orange really. There was a nice chunky foam finger of head at the pour, and what is left is a chunky spotty layer over the brew with a bit of a ring of lace. Overall looks like a good English style IPA.  


Smell: (3.5)
- Certainly a wonderful aroma of darker more creamy flavored malts in the nose. Light brown sugar, wheat, and a baked bready aroma. Light grassy and earthy hops lend a little aroma, but not so much. Not bad smelling for the style. But certainly not a typical NW IPA. 


Taste: (3.5)
- This is one balanced and tasty brew. There is a nice subtle punch of very early boil hops that lend this beer some killer bitterness with its grassy an zesty hops. Certainly a little spice kick to them. The smooth caramel and bready malts really provide the balance. Lovely full flavor for being as light as it is in ABV. 


Mouth Feel: (4.0)
- This beer has a pretty big body and is very nicely carbonated. Nice creamy texture, and isn't overly sticky or chewy. It's nice bitterness doesn't make it at all too drying either. It's quite nice.


Overall: (4.0)
- This is a solid beer from start to finish. It's also a nice IPA to let warm up a little to really get a lot out of its malt character. Nice bready grain flavors and a super good and unique bitterness to balance. Certainly worth the try. It's quite the session beer as well, and also a meal in a bottle.

Going To Experience This Years Oregon Brewers Festival?


I was lucky to make last years because of a wonderful certificate the folks at Big Al's in Vancouver gave me. It allowed me and a friend to attend and enjoy some wonderful beers. I hope to make this years as well, but I didn't take time off  this year from work like I always do to attend. I hope to make a road trip into Bend and spend a few days there this year. 

I was sent the media newsletter package, which was put together very well, and I will embed it here in this post to try and get the information out there as best as possible for the readers here, and make it more compact and organized. 

This year they are introducing a sour beer tent. That is so awesome. A geek like me might just spend every ticket and second of time in that spot, because I know most at the fest could care less about sour beers. But times are changing, and craft beer is still growing at a very rapid pace.

Beer Review: Rogue VooDoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale


Rogue Ales’ latest creation appeared in the WW office this morning, a collaboration with Voodoo Doughnuts called the Bacon Maple Ale, based on That Doughnut. Whilst we’re loath to give any attention to this blatant gimmickry, after tasting it, we feel a civic obligation to warn anyone who might be considering splashing $156 on a case.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Appearance: (3.5)
- A nice amber colored brew with fluffy light beige fingers of head that settle to a thin spotty blanket and large ring of lace. Most transparent brew.

Smell: (3.5)
-  Big heavy maple syrup aroma, this puppy really does smell like a maple bar. Sweet, crispy glazed maple bar. Lot's of smoke hiding behind the maple aromas, woody and earthy character. A somewhat basic amber ale malt and beer is so gently hiding behind the other flavors. Interesting, and not bad. The maple lingers in the nose a very long time.

Taste: (4.0)
- Lots of smoke in this puppy, and I actually really like it. Woody charred grain husks, like smoking some good meats outdoors. Nice actually subtle maple flavor as compared to the aroma. A pretty basic amber ale backbone. I dig it. Certainly drinkable.

Mouth Feel: (3.5)
- A little sticky and creamy, well carbonated, and not really super chewy. It's just a touch dry from its light hopping, and is overall pretty nice to the palate.

Overall: (3.5)
- Pours like a Rogue Amber, smells very strong of maple, and tastes more strongly of smoke. It drinks well, and is actually worth the try in my opinion. I have heard a lot of bad things about it, and I think they are mistaken. I for one though love smoked beers. Certainly not worth the price tag though.

Beer Review: GoodLife Brewing Mountain Rescue Pale Ale


"Here at GoodLife Brewing Company in beautiful Bend, Oregon, we embrace Mother Nature and all her mountains, streams and lakes. We often celebrate our "good life" outdoor adventures with a great beer afterwards -- like this one, our Mountain Rescue Dry Hop Pale Ale. We made it to honor the many mountain rescue teams out there who make the wilderness a safer place for all.
So, go play in the mountains around us. And toast to the good life you live. Cheers to Mountain Rescue teams everywhere!
Malt: NW Two Row, Melanoidin, Crystal 60, Carafoam
Hops: Centennial, Cascade, Pacific Jade 

5.5% ABV | OG:14oP | IBUs 40" 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 


Appearance: (4.0)
- Pours a lightly cloudy copper with a quickly fizzing bubbly white head. Scattered bubbles, and various blotches of foam left about and a medium ring of chunky lace left about the glass. Nice looking ale.

Smell: (3.5)
- The malt forwardness is strong, and something I don't really favor in a beer, especially a pale ale. A super bready malt aroma with a backbone of caramel and husky grain. On a positive note, a nice pine and grassy hop hits hard up front, and finishes with a very pleasant floral aroma. I do like the hop aromatics quite a bit in this one.

Taste: (4.0)
- Biscuit, bread, subtle and not-so-sweet caramel, pine and earthy hop bitters, and a super balanced floral hop. So glad the flavor made up for the aroma. Nice full flavor, and all grain goodness with a great hop presence. I almost have to cutoff air intake via the nostrils though when I enjoy this beer.

Mouth Feel: (3.5)
- Nice full body for a light pale. Creamy, crisp, only a touch dry, and certainly chewy. No super sweet syrupy chewiness though. Perfectly carbonated. Drinks more like a robust IPA.

 Overall: (3.5)
- This beer does indeed stand out. The feel, and balance is unmatched..  yet not something I would expect in a light drinking pale ale. It is a full bodied, full flavored ale that could almost be considered a meal. That's very good, but I am rating a pale ale here. A standard table ale? An amber? Might get even higher marks from me. Solid, and certainly worth the purchase. I look forward to more offerings from this long time and well known brewer in the Northwest.

Beer Review: Oakshire Brewing The Perfect Storm Double IPA


"Just when you think we couldn’t top our last round of single batch beers, we go and do something like this – and totally blow your mind! We’ve got 4 new single batch beers flowing out of the brewery: Glen’s Hop Vice, Perfect Storm IPA, Reclamation Lager, and Wir Trinken. Upcoming single batch beers include Graduation Ale and a Chocolate Orange Porter. Still have a hankering for Big Black Jack, Zwarte Nacht, Meandering Monk, or Hippie Town Brown? You’re in luck because we have trace amounts still here at the brewery in either bottle form or kegs- these supplies are very limited so please email info@oakbrew.com to get the most current information. 

Glen's Hop Vice is our tribute to the late Eugene Brewer Glen Falconer; we released this beer for the Sasquatch Beer Festival in his honor. This Imperial IPA is a lesson in simplicity, using just one type of malted barley (Vienna Malt) one hop variety (Citra) and one yeast strain (American Ale yeast). The three ingredients come together with pure McKenzie water to produce a very complex ale.
Our Double IPA, aka Perfect Storm, is packed with copious amounts of six PNW hops for wildly aromatic refreshment and over the top flavors. Intense hop bitterness looms over a juicy malt body and lingers after each sip, coming together in the Perfect Storm of Ales. This assertive beer should be paired with assertive foods and served in smaller glassware to savor the hop forward aromas and flavors.

We’ve also created a Czech-Style Pilsner: The Reclamation Lager. A bright golden lager with a soft bread-like aroma from the floor malted Bohemian malt. It’s light bodied and refreshing; with a sharp spicy Noble hop flavor and aroma.


We drink light beer = Wir Trinken Hellesbier! Inspired by Bavaria, straight out of Oakshire. This is a bright, light, golden lager with mild bready malt aromas and very little hops. It’s refreshing and easy to drink- the perfect German Session Beer! Ok- this may not be the newest addition to our line-up as it’s been out for a few weeks now; but it’s so good that we thought it deserved another shout out." 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Appearance: (4.0)
- Pours a nice clear copper penny color. Fluffy finger and a half of white thick head, fizzled slowly down to a thin and lightly spotty paper-thin layer over the brew. Half-inch of solid lace sticking to the glass. A pretty beer.

Smell: (3.0)
-  A grainy, malty aroma. Biscuit, sweet bread, and light brown sugars. Seems like German malts, some that I am not too fond of in an IPA. Slight tart aromas, fruity hop, fruit salad... just a tad off for me.

Taste: (3.0)
- Certainly a fruity mix with the bready and grainy sweet malt. Lots of caramel, bitter grassy and earthy hops, and an interesting nutty waldorf salad-like flavor. Certainly a spicy bitterness. Overall it just isn't quite there for me. Big diacetyl flavors...

 Mouth Feel: (3.5)
- Medium body, slightly syrupy and sticky, and well carbonated. Bit cloying and dry from the good bitterness. Chewy yes.

Overall: (3.0)
- Can't say I am digging this beer. I have had it on tap a few times, and I feel the same about it in the bottle. After having a Fat Tug IPA, this beer falls very short. It's earthy bitterness and mouth feel is decent, but the malt and nutty fruit just doesn't hit the spot.

#PDXBEERGEEKS First Anniversary Celebration At EastBurn July 21, 2012


The #pdxbeergeeks community group celebrates first anniversary with Special Release from Short Snout Brewing

Portland, Oregon - Just one year ago, during Oregon Craft Beer Month, a couple of beery people met up over beers during Belmont Station's Puckerfest. After an hour or so of hearty laughter and general mirth, they moved the party to a local brewery in an effort to further their #31beers / #31breweries accomplishments for Oregon Craft Beer Month. Born from initial friendship over local beer, and the resulting organization of a group of locals, monthly gatherings have ensued to enjoy and discuss craft beers, share homebrew, support local venues, welcome folks from out of town, and support craft beer in the Portland Metro area and beyond.

PDX Beer Geeks / #pdxbeergeeks© (the brain child of Michael Umphress (@mmcooljam) and Emily Engdahl (@emilyengdahl)) took flight quickly, developing into a small group with an informal gathering at Short Snout Brew. Beers were enjoyed... Brainstorming was done... and the rest, as they say, is history. Now over 500 fans strong, and in celebration of their first anniversary, join the PDX Beer Geeks / #pdxbeergeeks© as they toast this first great year.

The party includes special beers from Fort George, Natian, and The Commons, in addition to a special release by the little nano-brewery who hosted the very first meet-up, Short Snout Brewery of Milwaukie, Oregon. Debuting the Blackberry Sage Porter, the friendship fostered at that first Short Snout gathering propelled the geeks forward into a wonderful community, celebrating the cheer of beer all over our great nation.

A fun filled evening of friends gathering and beer drinking will be had at EastBurn the evening of July 21, 2012.  Several raffle prizes will be available throughout the evening. Raffle tickets will be available for sale at the event. Prices are $2/ticket or $10/10 tickets. Tickets will also be available with specific beverage purchases for raffle prizes including:

 
  • Brewvana Brewery Tours gift certificates
  • Eastburn gift certificate
  • Bridgetown Beerhouse gift certificate
  • Vintage Cocktail Lounge gift certificate
  • HikesandPints.com gift certificate

Full Sail Brewing Welcomes New Brewer’s Share Experimental Beer – Clinton’s Wertzbier

Brewery Invites you to Meet the Brewer and the Beer


Hood River, Oregon – To celebrate Oregon Craft Beer Month, Full Sail will release a new beer in their Brewer’s Share Experimental line up: Clinton’s Wertzbier brewed by Brewer Clinton Wertzbaugher. Wertzbier is a Rauchbier which is a traditional German beer style using smoked barley malt. In fact, rauch means smoke in German. Used modestly in this recipe, the smoked malt imparts a delicate smoky character to Wertzbier. Munich malt complements with a pleasant sweetness. At 5.6% ABV and 17.5 IBU, this lager has a light body with a spicy hop nose from Czech Saaz hops, and finishes clean and crisp with a hint of smoke.

"I made this beer to celebrate the good times of summer. Two of my favorite things about the season are campfires and barbeques with friends.  Since I can’t always be around a glowing fire with buddies, I wanted to brew a Rauchbier to remind me of these good times. In just a sip, the smokiness transforms my bar stool into a camp chair. As a summer beer, it is brewed lighter in alcohol and less smoky than a traditional Rauchbier.  I used my favorite hops, Saaz and Crystal, and balanced it with Smoked, Munich and pale 2 Row malts. It makes for a unique and easy-going summer companion,” said Wertzbaugher.
Full Sail has scheduled two Meet the Brewer and the Beer” events to showcase this new beer. The first Meet Brewer and the Beer event will be at Full Sail at Riverplace in Portland, Tuesday, July 10th from 5:00 – 6:30PM. The second is at the Full Sail Tasting Room and Pub in Hood River, on Thursday, July 12th from 5:00 to 6:30PM. Join the Full Sail crew to celebrate and toast a pint of the new brew. 

With each Brewer’s Share series beer, Full Sail picks a local charity to receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the beer. Clinton has chosen to support the Oregon Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and every keg of Clinton’s Wertzbier benefits this organization. The National MS Society funds more MS research, provides more services to individuals with MS, offers more professional education and furthers more advocacy efforts than any other MS organization in the world. 

The Brewer’s Share series is a line-up of small batch draft beers where each Full Sailor takes a turn hand-crafting their own single batch recipe and a portion of the proceeds benefit a local charity of their choosing. Full Sail’s Brewer’s Share Experimental beers will only be available on tap at Full Sail’s Tasting Room and Pub in Hood River, Oregon, and at Full Sail’s Brewery at Riverplace, in Portland, Oregon. Growlers to go are available. The next Brewer’s Share Experimental will be brewed by Brewer Gavin Lord and is expected in late September.

 In recognition of the positive impact that Oregon craft brewers have made to our communities, the entire month of July has been designated by the Governor as Oregon Craft Beer Month. “It is an honor to brew a beer for Oregon Craft Beer Month with one of my own recipes,” added Wertzbaugher.
