Challenging Beers for the Past 25 Years

Challenging Beers for the Past 25 Years

Portland's Hair of the Dog plans a birthday bash
To the Central Oregon resident who only occasionally pays a trip to Portland, it can often seem like the city grows a couple new breweries with every visit.

Barrel Season

Deschutes, Crux bring out yearly favorites
Time to clear some space in the ol' beer shed.

Revisiting Rogue

Despite stumbles, it's still Oregon's most widespread beer brand
Considering that Rogue Ales produced nearly 100,000 barrels in 2017 (according to Brewers Association figures) and distributes its beer, cider, soda and distilled spirits to 50 U.S. states—and worldwide from Thailand to Norway, local Oregonian beer nerds still sometimes treat the brand as something of a joke.

The Great Pumpkin Beer Roadshow

An old fall tradition returns
It is now well into the fall season, and everyone who enjoys a good ale knows that the cooler weather means only one thing: Fresh hop ales, barrel-aged stouts, tart fruit bombs, pumpkin beers!

Drinking Socially

Untappd is for more than just nerds
Since its launch in 2010, Untappd has been the smartphone-owning beer nerd's best friend—apart from happy hour and a reliable ride back home.

Beer Vegas

Fine craft in the city that never sleeps
Craft beer is now so mainstream that even in downtown Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world, there is a barrel house.

Oregon Cleans Up at GABF

The most medals ever at American beer's biggest event
The advertising slogan for the 2018 Great American Beer Festival sums it up better than anyone else could: "4000+ Beers.

Salem's Beer Scene Heats Up

Garage breweries setting the tempo in the Cherry City
Compared to Bend's booming beer scene, Portland's dozens of craft sites and all the many wineries of the Willamette Valley, Oregon's capital city has never been known as a hotspot for craft beverage fans.

Fresh Hops Are Here

Dozens of seasonal beers on their way
There's no doubt that craft beer is a nationwide trend—one that now has many regional specialties.

More New Breweries (Again)

Boss Rambler leading the latest crop
It's a bit of a running joke at this point.

The Little Woody Cheat Sheet

Small fest, big beer
Labor Day is here, and with it comes cooler weather, football on TV, and (in the case of Bend) the end of heavy traffic.
