Bend Brewing Company

My Friday included visits to four brewery/ brewpubs (Bend Brewing, Deschutes Brewery & Public House, Silver Moon Brewing, McMenamins Pub & Brewery) and two watering holes (Summit and Blacksmith). My first stop of the evening was Bend Brewing Company. I had them pour samples of Elk Lake IPA, Outback Old Ale, Axe Head Red, Pinnacle […]


After a long drive I was greeted with pizza and beer

Between Portland and Crescent we had winds, rain, snow, hail, sleet and fog.  We were lucky we didn’t hit any ice coming over the 58.  After 4-hours of crazy weather and car snacks, the pizza and beer tasted awesome.  The beer is a light bodied ale from Cascade Lakes Brewing Company called Rooster Tail Ale.  […]

A quick stop at Alpine Beer Company

New After my appointment in El Cajon I ventured just a few more minutes east. I was hoping they still had some Nelson IPA, but no…this batch only lasted a week.  I feel fortunate to have had a few pints of Nelson at Churchill’s 2009 Hopocolyps a week and a half ago. Alpine posted new […]


Hot Rocks and Homework

Not quite a full 22oz pour, but still better than a 4oz taster.   I expect to be up late, so I doubt this is my only post for the evening.
