Review of Steelhead Brewing

Found this review of Steelhead Brewing Company (Eugene, Oregon). I can’t say for sure, but I think we might have been there, once—we went to one of the microbreweries in Eugene some years ago, and I can’t exactly recall which one.

Steelhead has at least four regular ales on tap at all times: Hairy Weasel Hefeweizen, Barracuda Blonde, Raging Rhino Red — which won the gold at the Great American Beer Festival in 1991 — and Bombay Bomber IPA. Prices of these ales range from $2.75 to $5.25. Steelhead also offers plenty of seasonal and dark beers, such as the Strawberry Blonde, the Pacific Crest Porter and McFaddin’s Oatmeal Stout. For those who like to stick to the domestic beers, Bud Light and Michelob Ultra are also available. But not even teetotalers are left out — Steelhead also specializes in two flavors of freshly brewed root beer.

For those more concerned with the environment of Steelhead rather than the specialty drinks, Steelhead offers a friendly, lively, outdoorsy atmosphere great for dinner parties, casual get-togethers and dates. The only real drawback to the whole scene is the lack of diversity found inside. The servers were friendly when they had time to come by the tables, which was pretty rare but understandable on a busy Saturday night….
