Beer Geek - Winter Craft Beer in the 'Couve

Dec 10, 2015 -- 9:25am

If you didn't get enough craft beer cheer at the Holiday Ale Festival in Portland, go check out this weekend's Vancouver Winter Brewfest at Esther Short Park.  

It features a great beer lineup from various Washington breweries you don't regularly see in Portland along with a fantastic list of holiday beers from no fewer than TWELVE breweries that are cranking out fantastic beer in the greater Vancouver area.  I think the craft beer scene in Vancouver is growing faster than anywhere else in the region right now.

 

Also happening this weekend: Occidental Brewing Company's Humbug Lager Fest.  It's Saturday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.    It will feature a wide variety of lagers (light to dark, easy drinking to strong and bold) from Occidental and other local breweries.

 

Finally a shout-out for the Beer Geek's friends at Imperial Bottle Shop & Taproom in Southeast Portland.  They are celebrating the "21 Days of Festivus" by posting daily giveaways on their Facebook page. Winners will receive prizes ranging from $5 gift cards and swag from local breweries.  The awesome Grand Prize is a , a $1 growler-a-week for all of 2016!  There will be special tappings too.  Stop in and say "hi" to Alex & Shawn.

Beer Geekl - How Much Is Your Craft Brewery Worth?

Nov 19, 2015 -- 7:39am

How about one BILLION dollars?  New York-based Constellation Brands, which owns big brands including Corona, Robert Mondavi wines and Svedka vodka, is buying San Diego-based Ballast Point Brewing for 1-billion dollars.  Yes, that's billion with a "B"!

Over in Central Oregon, Bend Brewing Company is selling, but not to a beer giant.  A Denver couple named Packy and Leslie Deenihan is buying the family run company and plans to keep it that way.

Beer Geek - A Very Special 30th Anniversary

Oct 22, 2015 -- 7:50am

This weekend you can enjoy a pint of the beer that started it all for Brian and Mike McMenamin.  The "new" brew was dervied from a combination of old brew sheets from Hillsdale and Cornelius Pass Roadhouse, which also brewed "Hillsdale Ale" back in 1986 and 1987...

Check out some Hillsdale Ale Fun Facts from the Beer Geek's friends at New School Beer....
