Samuel Adams Imperial White

While out today I purchase one each of the Samuel Adams Imperial Series.  Today’s sampling was the Imperial White, a wheat ale brewed with spices, which clocks in at 10.3% alc./vol.  wow


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. […]


Friday’s Brewery #4 was McMenamins Pub & Brewery

Considering that the Oregon brewpub Guide is only ten pages, and that includes the cover and the pull out map, and that McMenamins Pubs covers over two pages front and back, it would seem McMenamins is as common to Oregon as taco shops are to southern California.  McMenamins represents 48 of the 138 listed brewpubs […]


Friday’s Brewery #3 was Silver Moon Brewing

Having had Bend Brewing and Deschutes beers before, I pretty much knew what to expect.  Silver Moon Brewing, on the other hand, was someone I had not heard of.   It was also just a couple of blocks east of Bond and within walking distance. The first thing I noticed was the tight range of alcohol […]


Bend Watering Holes

While visiting with Tanya, at Bend Brewing, I asked her where she would recommend I go to grab a good pint of beer.  She said The Blacksmith Restaurant.  That it had a decent tap list and even a better bottle list, and that is was located in the building right behind Deschutes Public House.  So […]


Friday’s Brewery #2 was Deschutes Brewery & Public House

One block over and one block up from Bend Brewing you will find Deschutes Brewery & Public House..OK maybe you won’t find it..but I did. Top to bottom and left to right, I ordered my set of six tasters.  I like the idea of putting it on a pad. Though it does not show well […]


A Deschutes by the Deschutes

I arrived at Deschutes Brewery yesterday just in time to watch the last of their guests leave and witness them dragging in their  “Beer Tasting” sign. While the rest of my party enjoyed the comfort of a warm dark movie theater, I decided to sit outside in the sun, have a pint and down load […]


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.  […]
