Happy Hump Day; we’re halfway through the week and it’s been a slow start for Oregon beer news. I’ll be collecting news throughout the day and updating this post. If you have any to share, please let me know.
- Hats off to Homebrewers, at the Bier Stein from 6 to 9pm. Homebrewers can bring their 22oz bottles of homebrew to be transported back to Bend for a “thorough Deschutes Brewery Sensory Panel evaluation” and there will be prizes for best label, flavor, and so on.
- At Taylor’s Bar and Grill from 9 to 10:30pm Deschutes beers will be a special price (though no mention of how special).
Deschutes at the Bend Pub is also hosting the latest stop in the Brewed Awakenings book tour, from 5 to 8pm. There will be plenty of The Abyss and Hop in the Dark on tap plus a “special one-night-only appearance of Brewed Awakening IPA” that they brewed in honor of the book.
The Green Dragon (Portland) is hosting a Brew Crew “nano release” for Yarr’O Pale Ale, brewed by Ted Assur of the Oregon Brew Crew. The beer sounds like a hybrid English-American style pale ale which is aggressively dryhopped with dried yarrow blossoms (a common ingredient in old gruits). It’s 5% abv with 94 IBUs. The release party runs from 5 to 8pm.
