Beer Geek - Attack Owl IPA

Mar 19, 2015 -- 9:12am

Remember this story from back in February?

First came the warning signs....   

... and then...

... which caught the attention of the national media...

... it's even inspired T-shirts by one of the owl attack victims....

... and now, as heard on the radio this morning, Salem's Vagabond Brewing Company has brewed up Attack Owl IPA!  Let's hope the beer gets as much attention as the signs did, because Salem's craft beer scene is an up and coming place. as owner Dean Howes told Beer Geek listeners this morning, Vagabond just celebrated its 1-year anniversary in January and is now one of a half dozen local craft breweries to call Oregon's capitol city home.

If you head that way, check out Vagabond along with Santiam Brewing, Salem Ale Works, Gilgamesh, McMenamins Thompson & the RAM.

Beer Geek - Culmination Brewing

Mar 05, 2015 -- 4:54pm

A big Beer Geek "cheers" to Tomas Sluiter from Culmination Brewing, Portland's newest brewery...

Tomas has been open about a month at  2117 NE Oregon St,, about 4 blocks north of Sandy Boulevard (about a 10 minute walk from Migration Brewing).  

 

One of his signature beers is a delicious Black IPA...

...modeled after one of his favorite brews at Founders Brewing in his \hometown of Grand Rapids Michigan. Yes, a fellow beer lover and brewer who is also a lifelong Detroit Tigers fan!

 

  

Cheers to Tomas who is living the "exhilerating and terrifying dream" of opening and running his own brewery.

Check Culmiatnion out on Facebook & Twitter.  Better yet, go visit their taproom and say "hi" to Tomas and company!

Beer Geek - Cheers, Jerome...

Feb 19, 2015 -- 9:48am

 

No radio segment this morning due to our coverage of Jerome Kersey's passing.  What a sad day for Portland.  A class act who gave us so many memories and never stopped giving back to the community.  RIP Jerome.

Now onto the craft beer fun.  No shortage of events this weekend.  Lompoc's Black Out Beer Fest is Friday (4p-10p) at Sidebar.  19 dark beers from 15 local breweries.

Next door, the Chowder Challenge is coming up on Saturday 12-4p at Lompoc's 5th Quadrant.  

Over at the Green Dragon, Firkin Fest (Saturday 11a-6p) will feature cask beers from 40 breweries. It's the way many beers were meant to be quaffed: cellar temperature & naturally carbonated.  Really brings out the subtle flavors & really showcases simple styles like mild ales, ESB's and stouts.  

If you REALLY want to enjoy a firkin/cask/real ale treat, head to Brewers Union Local 180 in Oakridge on Highway 58 east of Eugene.  It's worth the trip to enjoy Oregon's only Real Ale pub.

One piece of news: Looks like Two Kilts Brewing Co. won't be coming to Hillsboro after all, according to this story on OregonLive...

Coming up on the radio next Thursday, February 26@ 7:40 a.m.: Dan Malech and Rob Lutz from Portland's Stormbreaker Brewing will be live in studio to preview next Saturday's Brewstillery craft beer & distillery festival...
