Beer Geek - Ecliptic's 1 Year Anniversary

Oct 23, 2014 -- 8:37am

Thanks to John Harris of Ecliptic Brewing for coming on the radio this morning.

Seems like yesterday when the rumors were flying about where is brewery would be and what name he'd give it.

In the past year, Ecliptic has brewed 120 batches of beer & become a go-to establishment in Portland's Mississippi neighborhood...

His Filament Winter IPA is a favorite of mine.  

This morning, John brought in a growler of his Rigel Sparking Reiseling Anniversary Ale.  It's easy drinking goodness....

  

As you heard on the radio, there are two events coming up to celebrate Ecliptic's anniversary...

TODAY from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. its a Solar Eclipse Viewing Party.  Sure it's gonna be a grey day, but that won't stop the party in the parking lot!  

THIS SATURDAY, October 25th, Ecliptic will debut Oort Imperial Stout, as well as other special beers from its vault. The restaurant will feature anniversary ribs from chef Molitor, and newly designed Ecliptic t-shirts will be available for sale. Harrris will also host complimentary brewery tours at noon, 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Several bluegrass-style bands will entertain throughout the day, including:

●      3 – 4 p.m.: Roadopossum, Harris’ band

●      4 – 5:30 p.m.: Erin’s Off the Cuff

●      5:30 – 7 p.m.: Vlad and the Hats

●      7 – 9 p.m.:Jack Straw

Beer Geek - Thunder Island turns 1!

Oct 16, 2014 -- 10:11am

Happy 1st anniversary to Thunder Island Brewing in Cascade Locks.  Brewer Dan Hyman stopped by the First Edition Beer Geek this morning to talk about their big birthday bash coming up on Saturday.  

  

They've come a long way in the past 365 days, recently installing a 7 barrel brewhouse to keep up with demand.  It replaces their originaly 2 bbl system, which just couldn't make beer fast enough, which is a great problem to have.

It's great place to visit: right on the Columbia River, with a fantastic view of the mountains on the Washington side of the water...

Saturday's party is from Noon to 9 p.m. & will feature a sour beer tasting, food trucks, and live music.

Beer Geek - Still time to get "fresh"

Oct 09, 2014 -- 8:03am

Fresh Hops: this must be the most exclusive style of beer brewed in the Northwest....   Seriously, where else in the country can a brewery pick up the hops at the local farm and dump them into the brew kettle within an hour or so?

The last big festival dedicated to these one-of-a-kind beers is this Saturday: the St. Paul Fresh Hops Festival.  2-10 p.m.  $10 admission gets you a festival glass & tokens.  25 beers available for sampling.  21 and older.

 

 

Beer Geek - Oregon Beer Showdown

Oct 02, 2014 -- 9:20am

As heard on the radio this morning, the Oregon Beer Challenge is underway at the Portland Business Journal.  Its a March Madness-style bracket featuring 64 different breweries seeded 1-16 in 4 different regions.

Thanks to Andy Giegerich from PBJ for coming on the radio to talk Beer Bracketology!  

Bigger breweries (like #1 seeds Widmer, Deschutes, Portland & Ninkasi) were ranked based on beer production.  Other "at large" bids were given to lesser known breweries around the state, including one of my favorites, Brewers Union Local 180 in Oakridge.

Voting is open to the public & continues thru most of October.  It will be interested to follow.  Just like with the real March Madness, upsets are likely!
