The Brew Site

Back from Portland…

Came back from Portland yesterday to find a package from Flying Dog at my front door: they had sent me a PR package containing their new Woody Creek White. Nice!

Also had dinner and beers at Laurelwood Brewing Company‘s new(ish) Public House in Northeast Portland. We had the kids with us, and I’d been hearing that Laurelwood’s new place is very kid friendly (it is), so it was nominated.

At the Portland Saturday Market, we stopped at the Rogue booth and I bought a bottle of their never-before-seen (by me, anyway) Portland Saturday Market Artisan Ale… very exclusive, it would appear.

Finally, a trip to Trader Joe’s found a $9.99 12-pack of an amber beer (I don’t have it in front of me at the moment, and can’t remember the details), "Northwest" ale, possibly from Hale’s Ales… though it doesn’t seem to be any of the beers listed on their site, so who knows. I’ll have more to report when I crack into the box after I get home.
