    Been enjoying pFriem pilsner lately, it's just clean and good, not pricey either. This year, it will be a destination ride to Hood River for me just to check out this brewery.

    :drink :freaky :beer

    Which versions of stout? I tend to darker brews for myself, but include the lighter ones for my friends.

    Yes, we're working on a plan now. We will probably start heading down the night of April 26th from the Tacoma area.


    I did not see any KTM's there besides the small street KTM that camped close to me. Was it too far to ride your KTM or was there a problem on the way south?
    It was a good camp this year and surprised to see Allagash show up with a keg of oak aged Saison. That was a treat.

    Actually 4 versions. I brewed an Russian Imperial Stout and aged in in a bourbon barrel. I also brewed a three stouts using the same recipe and used three different yeasts in each batch. Then blended the three with varying percentages of the RIS to taste. Bottled them all and now sitting in a cool, dark corner of the basement.

    I have two vintages of the Kriek; love that beer. Saving the two bottles I have left and hoping they continue to develop in the bottles.

    Like @PNWRR I've been getting down on the lighter ales as the days get longer. Lately, Buoy's Czech Pilsner is my go-to. I lvoe that beer. When I want to mix it up and stay in a similar style, Full Sail's Session is always good for one or three. And if I'm really missing Montana, a Montucky Cold Snack is always a great, inexpensive option.

    WAY LATE OF A REPLY - I didn't make it down. Work got in the way, but my buddies did make it. They were both on BMW 800's. I finished up a brew of Hazy IPA and it is my last brew for the Harmon Brewing Co. I have decided to leave the company after almost 10 years. If anyone knows of a brewery that is opening and needs some help or if anyone needs any help at their brewery I am available and looking at my options. I am also interested in starting something up if anyone is interested in that.

    Or if your free and want to meet for a beer, I have time!

    Have a great Holiday everyone.

    Hey Jeff, sorry to hear that. Hope it was a good move for you. If you’re in the area drop in for a beer.

    Got MrsYo up early on Black Friday. We got to our local grocer just as they started selling the Bourbon County Stout (2017 release) at 0700. There was already quite a line. I took the Mrs because there was a limit on how many bottles each person could purchase (3 x 2017, 1 x 2016)

    On Dec. 1 the 2017 edition of C.B.S. will be released. I'll repeat my process.

    It looks like the whole Oregon City economy is going to Dope and Beer. Tap rooms / breweries are springing up from tip-up slab commercial buildings to old pizza houses for Dope. The city has a rule that the dispensary can not use the Maryjane leaf for advertisement, so they just write Dope, Blow, and Weed on the buildings. Which are mostly located next to a vape shop.

    Thank you, I have never had such a hard time with making a decision. I hope to stay in the industry, and hope to meet you for a beer one day.

    Well, I ran my last keg dry. Since I am not in the game at the moment I had to buy some beer! I usually would go for something fancy but I am trying to pinch my beer pennies. I picked up a 12 pack of Lagunitas 12th of never. It's a little light but overall is tasty and going down easy.

    Have a great day all!

    Good Morning all,

    I picked up the new issue of Northwest Brewing News and wanted to give a shout out to Dave at Flat Tail. He is quoted and is featured as one of the Northwests best Wild Beer Brewers. Congratulations Dave!

    On the beer drinking front the couple of memorable offering that I have enjoyed lately have been, New Braunfels Hopfenstopfen, Fremont Coconut B-Bomb and Block 15 Hypnosis.

    Have a great Christmas weekend everyone.

    Last night at the Eastside Club Tavern in Oly (the beer drinker's friend since 1942), I had the Snowcap (reliably good) and the Arrogant Bastard (can't pass it up) on tap.

    Last week same place, it was the HUB A-Bomb on cask (excellent), the Arrogant Bastard, and a shared half of the Cabin Fever (an old favorite but I didn't like it).

    The Eastside has 42 taps and rotates the beer on a regular basis. In you come into Olympia, check it out. Remember that it is not fancy, it is a beer place (no hard liquor, limited wine and cider) and it is cash only.

    I was at the Eastside yesterday. Adam and I both belong to the same motorcycle club (River City MC) and are best of buds. We ride Dirt Bikes, Adventure Bikes and Scooters together. I enjoyed the Imperial Frambozen and the Fathom IPA yesterday. I made/created the Maryilyn's Mandarin Wheat for them. I think the Eastside is the best beer bar around and perfectly fancy.

    Hopefully I will see you around next time I visit.

    Drinking some Firestone Walker Sucaba. At 13.5% it is deliciously dangerous!
