Eugene City Brewing is a couple blocks south from Steelhead, and is owned by Rogue. The place was empty. Now it was before noon on the Monday after Easter, but still…where was everybody? They had a large group of taps so I got closer to take a look.
Instead of me choosing I told my server to choose for me; that I tend to lean toward IPA’s, Porters and Stouts, and would rather have something that I would not find just anywhere.
What I got was Contraband IPA, Glen Ale, an Imperial Porter and an Imperial Stout. Maybe it was just me that day, but I could not finish them…they just didn’t taste good. That day I was preferring the pale ales. It was time to find HopValley.
