Southern Oregon Brewing (?)

Apparently there’s a new brewery in Medford (Oregon): Southern Oregon Brewing Company. Found about them from this article here:

Southern Oregon Brewing Co. has released its first beers and has opened a tap room for public tasting and sales at its brew house. A golden ale and a porter are on tap.

Tap room hours are 4 to 10 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The tap room is at 1922 United Way in Medford, behind Lava Lanes. Tasters at the 24-foot bar and tables can view brewery activity through two large plate-glass windows.

Owner Tom Hammond and brewer Anders Johansen, whose resume includes stints with Pyramid and Deschutes breweries, are brewing once a week. Southern Oregon Brewing’s 20-barrel brew house is capable of producing 620 gallons per batch.

They don’t appear to have a website yet, or appear online anywhere else, so they appear to be brand new. That’s cool, southern Oregon is under-represented for breweries, in my opinion. Perhaps I’ll give them a call to find out more.

    I visited the tap room and found their beers to be excellent. I will definately look for them when I go out.

    The brewer, Anders Johansen, has worked for Pyramid and Deschutes (he created Mirror/Mirror). This is the third brewery he’s built. He’s also a distiller: http://www.dolmen.arbre.us/index.html

    The dude can brew!
