Oregon Beer News, 11/16/2011

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.

Deschutes Brewery‘s Base Camp continues in Eugene today, with a couple of events this evening:

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.
