OBF 2007: Brief note

More extensive writeups will follow, of course, but I must say, the Oregon Brewers Festival was really, really good this year. Lots of good beers, a few misses, and at least one that was good but very odd.

It was also the first time I’ve been considered "Media" for blogging. I had a badge, even. Something I could definitely get used to.

I hit all but one of my target beers, I believe. Pretty good! A quick note on my two favorites: Red Thistle Quercus from Golden Valley Brewing (pinot oak barrel aged red/ESB) and Bourbon Barrel Abbey Dubbel from Flying Fish (just like it sounds). Both were amazing. (Though I’ve seen a few online reviews from people who didn’t like the Bourbon Barrel. All I can do is shrug.)

More to come tomorrow and later this week.

    Loved the Red Thistle Quercus. Didn’t try the Bourbon Barrel. Sounds like I should have. Oh well, that’s what I get for keeping it to a small number of samples…
