Ashland

Took the weekend off to travel down to Ashland to take in a play and just generally relax. We did visit Standing Stone Brewing Company and I had their samplers (no meals), but I notice that southern Oregon generally doesn’t have much in the way of breweries. The other one in Ashland is Caldera Brewing, but they’re a brewery only, no outlet other than dock sales. And there’s really nothing in Medford to speak of.

So the trip turned into more of a winery trip, and that was pretty good, too. Other than that, it was a nice weekend off… we had the laptop, but I mostly avoided getting online except for a couple of times.

I’ll be posting my photos and review of Standing Stone in the next day or two. Back to it!

    Huh? What about Walkabout Brewing in Central Point? I loooove the Working Man’s Ale… hope they are still around!

    Glad you had a nice trip! :)

    Uh… well, I missed that one! Shoot!

    I can’t believe I did that… they’re gonna revoke my beer card for sure… :)

    Caldera is one of Oregon’s best breweries. I wish they had some kind of tasting room. Or maybe they do. Dunno. Standing Stone was, a coupla years back, fine, but not stellar. Improved?

    Standing Stone is pretty middle-of-the-road. They have a nice facility, and beers are fine, but not stellar (to borrow a phrase).
