Eugene Brewery Crawl: 1st stop Steelhead Brewery

In July of ’07 we first met Teri Fahrendorf, Steelhead Brewery’s Brewmaster for 17-years, as she was “following the clouds of wort steam across the nation” in her pink boots.

Though she has moved on from Steelhead, it was beer I have wanted to taste since meeting and talking to her.  I was not disappointed.

I ordered a custom sampler tray including the Orange Wheat, Bombay Bomber IPA, Raging Rino Red, Hopasaurus Rex, Glacier Pale Ale and the Doublin Dry Stout.

When my server was filling my samples I noticed that she added something to one of them.  She confessed that the Orange Wheat is just their Hairy Weasel with a splash of orange juice.  The Raspberry Ale is a beer brewed with raspberries and not just the blond with a splash of raspberry juice.

All were tasty, but I settled on a Glacier Pale Ale for my first pint of the day.

Thumbing through their menu I noticed the name of their seasonal winter brew.  Looks like I will need to head back up in the winter.
