A Very Juicy Summer

A Very Juicy Summer

Sunriver and Fort George join the haze-o-lution
Whenever a new fad comes up out of nowhere—whether it's fidget spinners, Hypercolor T-shirts, or any smartphone game ever—the backlash usually follows pretty quickly after.

Where Does the Water Go?

How breweries deal with tricky wastewater
For a growing brewery, one of the thorniest issues to deal with is what to do with all the wastewater—and not the kind people produce after having a few beers, either.

Gambling on Casino Beer

Nevada's semi-hidden & decent brew
Any Bendite who's ever gone on a cruise or stayed at a fancy Nevada casino resort knows that good craft beer just isn't part of the package there, most of the time.

The Hefe-Weight

Widmer launches 100 events for 100 days of summer
Oregon beer, astounding as it is to believe, continues to grow.

A Visit to the Apothecary

Paul Arney's wild-ferment brewery finally opens a tasting room
It's hard to believe, but Paul Arney has been producing some of Oregon's most unique and complex beers for nearly six years now.

A Day in Hell (or Eugene)

Hellshire Day kicks off Oregon's busy beerfest season
Warmer weather is finally here, and with it comes the irresistible desire to go out, purchase some wooden tokens, and try every beer in the universe, four ounces at a time.

Bend Brewsters

The scene stands out for its female D leaders
It is no longer a great novelty to see women in professional brewing—especially in Oregon, where the sheer size of the scene dictates that at least a few must be involved, statistically speaking.

Get Sour for May

A small flood kicks off the heart of spring
Ten years ago, when craft beer was just beginning to explode across Bend, the average beer drinker in the region could be asked about their favorite "sour" beer and left wondering what the heck that meant.

Some of That Sweet, Sweet Hop Bud

Lagunitas and its nod to the origin of "420"
The Lagunitas Brewing Company of Petaluma, Calif., is such a massive brewery these days that—thanks to being half-owned by Heineken International—it no longer counts as a "craft brewer" the way the Brewers Association defines it.

Grounding the Flight

A case for enjoying a taproom visit without a billion little glasses
It's a typical Saturday afternoon at Crux Fermentation Project: families and dogs outside, diners and beer nerds inside, and what seem to be half a dozen taster trays underneath the taps, waiting to be filled.
