Our staff love where they live, and we want to share all our insider tips, tricks, and hot spots that make our city so livable. We know that Portland is known for its epic craft beer selection, and fall brings out the best of the spiced brews. Before you head out on your historic movie theater date, make sure you...
This sounds absolutely delectable! "Sticky Toffee Stout is heavy handed with loads of brewer Marshall Kunz’ favorite British caramel malts, and gobs of oats, chocolate and dark fruit. The tanks were filled with bags upon bags of Medjool dates and Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans to take this stout up to eleven. Massive dark fruit and dessert wine-like notes melt into syrupy chocolate, topped with a dollop of sweet cream vanilla decadence."
Away Days Brewing
We love a beer with a local story: "Snow Plow Milk Stout, a classic winter beer with a soft and creamy mouthfeel and roasted chocolate notes, was first brewed in 1999 as the first winning recipe of the Collaborator Project, an annual homebrewing competition with the Oregon Brew Crew. Snow Plow clocks in at 6% ABV and incorporates lactose (milk sugar), wheat, black malt, and oats that give it a soft, creamy mouthfeel and notes of roasted malt that rounds out nicely..."
From their website: "Everything that goes into our beer comes from the earth, which is why we time the release of Farmers’ Annuary to coincide with the harvest season for hop farmers and grain producers in the Northwest. This year, we worked with earth-to-beer producers of fine craft brewing malts, Skagit Valley Malting to create a completely new malt. They put their already delicious wheat through the Pilsner Malting process in order to create a light color and breadiness perfectly suited to the hand-selected Strata and Chinook from Indie Hops. In Farmers’ Annuary, we’ve combined the best that the Northwest has to offer in an original, custom-made IPA so light, smooth and zesty that it could only have come from the earth.
What we harvest from the land, we will give back in delicious beer."
Old standby Jubelale from Deschutes Brewing lets everyone know the holiday season is upon us. So yeah, maybe it's a winter beer, technically, but it comes out every November, so we're calling it Fall, okay?? Plus, the art changes every year, so that's fun too! "Perfect for a cozy winter gathering, this is a festive ale characterized by a large malt body balanced with hop bitterness derived from a variety of American and European hops."
From Tavour.com: "Swirls of rich toasted wheat, brittle toffee, and a kiss of lemongrass course through each sip. Deep and complex, it's a bit like Honey Bunches of Oats cereal drizzled in caramel with a clean, crisp finish." Sounds like fall to us!
