While I am enjoying Denver. You get this review of a beer from Oregon that is at GABF. Rogue!
“FEARLESS BREWING COMPANY RELEASES 2009 STRONG SCOTCH ALE
Those of you who have been waiting patiently, or not so patiently, for the release of the 2009 Fearless Strong Scotch Ale can begin to relax. Fearless Brewing Company will celebrate the Autumn Equinox and its Strong Scotch Ale with a release party on Saturday, September 19th. Fearless Strong Scotch Ale is known for its deep, malty character with caramel undertones. Because hops were not abundant in Scotland, the beer traditionally has a lower hop rate. The 2009 batch has an alcohol content approaching 9 percent. Taps will begin pouring the Strong Scotch Ale at 3:00 pm on September 19th. To add to the celebration Fearless will feature a few menu specials as well as their famous Hungarian Mushroom soup.”
from Pelican Brewery in Pacific City, Oregon comes…
La Fleur Amère- With an abundance of floral, herbal hops and a rich, malty foundation, La Fleur Amère marries an assertive English-style IPA with exotic Belgian-style yeast. Brewed especially for the Oregon Brewers Guild’s “Cheers to Belgian Beers” event, but making a return appearance only at the Bite of Oregon, La Fleur Amère features a sparkling light gold color, an aroma of floral, earthy, herbal hops and a fruity, spicy yeast character. La Fleur Amère is dry-hopped with more than a pound of hops per barrel and finishes with a clean, snappy balance of malt flavor, hop bitterness, and slightly tart, spicy yeast character. ABV 7.% IBU’s 65 16.4 Plato
Another addition to the crowded but thriving Oregon beer scene is this Hillsboro based brewery.
Here is their current list of beers…
Cyclone Cream ale, Apricot Cream ale, Schwindel Alt, High-Altitude Amber, Razz Wheat & Friar Mike’s IPA.
These two guys started out home brewing then they just kept making more. The only logical thing to do was open a brewery.
…and I am ticked off about it. Siskiyou Brewing in Ashland. They carry Caldera, Rogue and beer from the outback of Central Point, Oregon.
The wonderfully, quirky folks at the McMenamin’s chain are also on the growing bandwagon of beer and desserts.
I just hope they don’t use their Jalapeno Wheat beer in a float.
Spontaneous Beer review of French Prairie Blanche from McMinnville, Oregon’s Golden Valley Brewing..
Ninkasi Brewing is located in Eugene, OR, and has been brewing high quality beers, in the Northwest style, since 2006. The Eugene location gives regional access to some of the highest quality brewing ingredients in the world, including pure cascade mountain water from the McKenzie River, Eugene’s sole municipal water source, and hops from the Pacific Northwest. Our focus is on flavorful, balanced beers, and we enjoy what we do. We are solely a production brewery, which allows us to fully devote our resources to creating the best beer possible. The overwhelmingly positive response we’ve received since or inception makes us very happy to be brewing in a region where people love great beer.
