Weekend in review: Corvallis (again), Goses, and botanicals

This is a bit of a late writeup as the past weekend grows more distant, but it turns out we hit a lot of breweries and drank a lot of beer last weekend! On Saturday we visited Corvallis, my wife and I and our friends Paul and Sandi, and ended up stopping at six(!) places for the day before coming back home that evening. Sunday you’d think would be mellower but I ended up with … Continue reading →

The main plan was to visit Block 15 Brewery, with a possible stop at Flat Tail Brewing as well; I had … Continue reading →

Today is my birthday, and as such the other tradition I’ve attached to this Advent Calendar (the first being the selection of Anchor Christmas Ale each year) is that I pick an entirely indulgent, not-necessarily-holiday beer for today’s selection—sort of a “vanity” pick for a big delicious beer that I would love to drink. This year I’ve selected a beer that is an appropriate holiday selection as well: Block 15 Brewery‘s Figgy Pudding. I’ve been … Continue reading →
