|Co-Founder Garret Wales and Head Brewery Whitney Burnside|
Co-Founder Garrett Wales talked to us a little bit about why their head-brewer Whitney Burnside was chosen for the Portland Brewery. In putting together the team for the Portland 10 Barrel, Whitney was chosen because of her innovation and creativity. Coming from a culinary background, which was currently lacking on the 10 barrel team, Whitney brought a new perspective to the brewing team.
Whitney will basically just be doing R&D Brewing in Portland. There will 20 taps at the brewpub, 10 of which will be Whitney creations. If a beer becomes popular enough to bottle, the recipe will be transferred to the production brewery in Bend. This will allow Whitney to work on developing new and unique beers without having to worry about production schedules.
|20 Barrel Brew House|
The first beer out of the new 20 Barrel Metal Craft brewhouse was Pearl IPA. A fantastic beer using Cascade, Mosaic, Simcoe and Amarillo hops.
All around this was a great experience if you can put aside the politics of being owned by a corporate beer giant I think you'll have a great time. The food is very good and the staff is phenomenal, very attentive and customer oriented. Not to mention the new creative beers that Whitney will be putting out.
