Some may be tired of the 16oz can world we live in but when it is utilized by places like Hair of the Dog or another Portland Brewery, Little Beast, it opens up many possibilities. Granted both Wolf Camp Saison and Hot Break Sour are “hoppified” in line with expectations from the packaging in customers minds, I hope to see something even wilder in future seasonal releases.

Little Beast has roots in Logsdon Ales and is earning a great reputation. I have yet to have one of their “wild, wood-aged and blended beer” but I am looking forward to when I see a bottle on shelves here.
Bes, in particular caught my eye…”Bes / Tart Wheat Ale. Brewed with Belgian malts, Lemon Drop Hops and chamomile flower then fermented with a blend of unique Saccharomyces yeast and conditioned with Lactobacillus. Juicy, bright and balanced. Notes of pineapple and citrus.”
