Received this week: Local winter ales

I was fortunate to pick up a couple of (complimentary/marketing) winter seasonal beers this week from Worthy Brewing and McMenamins Old St. Francis School: I stopped in at Worthy on Thursday after work to try the premier release of their new Powder Keg Winter Ale, a “winter IPA” that’s 7.1% abv, and ran into both my friend Lindsay Landgraf (Worthy’s social media and PR person) and Brewmaster Chad Kennedy. We chatted up beer and the … Continue reading →

Naturally, given that I’ve been following the progress of Worthy fairly closely since it was announced (you can review my Worthy-related posts here), it was a given that I’d be attending this opening, and documenting it. Here’s my … Continue reading →

Go Time (Worthy Brewing)

“Go Time” in this case refers to “Go Time Xtra Pale Ale,” the very first beer brewed by Bend’s Worthy Brewing which hit the taps at a few select places this past Friday. So, Friday after work we headed over to the Broken Top Bottle Shop to grab some dinner and try this first beer. You can see it’s a bright copper color with a creamy head. Not sure I myself would have called it … Continue reading →
