Weekend in review: 2 anniversaries plus cider

Actually, this is more of a review of this past Saturday rather than the entire weekend, and is mostly in photos. Both Deschutes Brewery and Crux Fermentation Project celebrated anniversaries on Saturday, Deschutes their 27th and Crux their 3rd. Since Crux was starting their party earlier with their annual Cruxapalooza, we headed there first for lunch, arriving shortly before they officially opened at 11:30.

Over a Pint: Pat “Patio” Shea of GoodLife Brewing

Here’s a new monthly feature I sort-of stumbled into this month: Over a Pint. The idea behind this comes from beer writer Brian Yaeger, who kicked it off last month; here’s Brian’s premise and description: “Over a pint.” Sort of in the vein of The Session kicked off by Stan Hiernymous exactly 8 years ago in 2007 and still going strong. The Session entails a different blogger each month conceiving a disparate topic related to beer … Continue reading →
