Upcoming beers

You’ve noticed that I’ve been reviewing more beers lately. I’ll be doing a lot more of that over the coming weeks and months; part of what I’ve done with some of my Christmas and birthday money this year was buy a bunch of beer that I haven’t had before, and I plan to post a review and tasting notes for each.

I suppose if I’d made any New Year’s resolutions, this would be one: try as many new beers as I can!

Anyway, I thought I’d post a list of the beers I’ve bought recently to try. Not counting the ones I’ve already reviewed this year. (Not doing links, either… I’ll link them as I review them.)

  • Celis White
  • Alaskan Winter Ale and 2005 Smoked Porter
  • Otter Creek Copper Ale
  • Siletz Chocolate Porter and Winter Warmer Ale
  • Melbourne Brothers Strawberry
  • Pelican Brewery India Pelican Ale
  • Saison du Pont
  • Rogue FestivAle
  • Trappistes Rochefort 10
  • Dogfish Head Aprihop
  • North Coast 2004 Old Stock Ale
  • Anderson Valley Winter Solstice

I’ve also been eyeing Widmer’s Snow Plow milk stout and Goose Island Stout, which I saw at Fred Meyer…

Side note, to Central Oregonians: I’ve said this before, but I think Newport Avenue Market on the westside really has the largest and best beer selection in town.


  1. I’m not crazy about the Celis beers (but others like them) offered by Michigan Brewing Company.

    The Goose Island Stout (and all of their others) are excellent – out of Chicago.

    Another good one to look for is Dragon’s Milk, brewed by New Holland in Michigan. They now only sell in 22 oz. bottles for a little over $7.00.
