Oregon Brewers Festival Reviews and drinking list.

Oregon brewers festival

Here is a list and short review of the beers I tried at the brewfest this year. Again reviews are not how good the beer is, or how well it sticks to style guidelines, just how much I liked them.

Day 1

Laughing dog black IPA - Forgot to rate not off to a great start.

Kona Coco-Loco - Coconut overtones but not overpowering a good, unique beer. B+

Pyramid Outburst- Forgot to rate

Cascade brewing summer Gose - sour bot refreshing B

Upright Reggae Junkie Gruit - terrible no hops F-

Hales Supergoose IPA- good standard Hoppy IPA B+

Summit horizon red ale - Forgot to Rate

My Emily ale house jells canyon IPA- overwhelming bubble gum aroma C+

Ninkasi brewing company maiden the shade amazingly robust hop flavor not overly bitter A+

Oakshire Overcast espresso stout - a very espresso-y beer. Thick B

Terminal Gravity Single Hop Double IPA - I couldn't pick out what its single hop was but definitely a double IPA B

At this point in the evening my taste buds stopped working and I decided my rating was over. Also it was getting late and I was getting really drunk.

Day 2
The second day I decided to try all full glasses instead of any samplers because the lines were so damn long.

Redhook big Ballard imperial ipa - Good and hoppy strong B

Rogue ales 21 - very malty almost a boch C+

Bayern Brewery Dump Truck Extra Pale Ale - Don't remember much about it but it was good. A-

Ram restaurant and brewery barefoot wit - I was really excited to try this one of the only wits at the beerfest but it let me down. Too many earthy undertones C+

Double mountain brewery and taproom the vaporizer - Mildly hoppy light beer refreshing B-

Three creeks brewing co Creekside kolach - Forgot to Rate

Natian brewery Destinatian I had never heard of this brewery so I decided to try it. Hoppy but smooth B-
