Oregon Beer News, 12/20/2011

Here’s the Oregon beer news for Tuesday, December 20th. I’ve noticed (and suspected) that the news is quieter this week (for obvious reasons), but there’s still stuff going on. I’ll be updating this post throughout the day so please contact me if you have news to share.

To continue with the “last minute Christmas shopping” theme I started yesterday, The Bier Stein (Eugene) has just the thing for you: “Hey, all you last minute shoppers! We have plenty of great gift ideas for that craft beer lover in your life! We have a great supply of assorted glassware, gift packs, specialty beers and gift certificates available for any amount you would like. Have a great Holiday, Cheers!”

And, Oakshire Brewing (Eugene) posted about a new “Oregon IPA” 4-pack that is on the shelves now: “New IPA Bomber boxes which include 22 ounce bottles of delicious Oakshire Watershed IPA, 10 Barrel Apocalypse IPA, Lompoc C-Note and SOB’s Nice Rack. They are retailing for around $20.00.” That’s a good price for a nice selection and coverage of Oregon’s IPAs.

Breakside Brewery (Portland) is closed today for their company holiday party, but will be open again and pouring beers tomorrow.

Ninkasi (Eugene) has posted a picture of the collaboration brew they did with Stone Brewing and The Alchemist—their “More Brown than Black IPA”—by which I’m guessing it should be hitting shelves here in Oregon soon. One to look for!

Upcoming tastings, releases, and “Meet the Brewer” events:

Happy hours, specials, and cheap pours:
