Beer Geek - Award-winning Homebrew

Nov 20, 2014 -- 9:26am

The Beer Geek's friends at Growlers Hawthorne are hosting a fun tasting this Saturday.

It's the winners of their first "Amateur Brewer Challenge"...      a Northwest IPA from the homebrewing team of Gabe Sainz & Rob Stangland.  

You can meet both of the guys, sample their beer & take home a growler at 3 p.m. on Saturday...

Their beer, brewed with copius amounts of citra and Mosaic hops, will also be on tap at Portland U-Brew & Pub starting Sunday.  PUB is where they actually brewed their award-winning beer.

Please give Growlers Hawthorne a "like" on Facebook.  It's a great place to sample and grab beer-to-go.

Beer Geek - Beer & History

Nov 06, 2014 -- 9:51am

Beer & history...   two of my favorite topics.

If you were listening to the Beer Geek radio segment this morning (podcast below), you heard Peri Muhich with Friends of Lone Fir Cemetery talking about efforts to restore Bottler's Tomb.  They have a big fundraiser coming up, at which we will also learn the winner of a homebrew competition to brew the official Boettler Bier.

Here's how the Friends of Lone Fir describe it: "(we) set a challenge to the Oregon Brew Crew; brew a German style beer for a chance to be recognized as a Bottler brother and brew the “Boettler Bier.” On Aug. 16th, seven Oregon Brew Crew members had a “beer brew off” at Lone Fir Cemetery. The public tasted ten specialized beers and voted for the brewer and their beer to be recognized as the Boettler Bier."

The finalists:

Vienna Lager – Brewer, Will Minderhout
Munich Helles – Brewer, Will Minderhout
Heritage Hefe – Brewer, Tracy Hensley
Dune Kill Fight Son aka “Dunkelweizen” – Brewer, Dylan VanDetta
Translator Weizenbock – Brewer, Rick Okamura
Haferflocken Helles – Brewer, Dean Ehnes

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.
