Found the oatmeal ale down in the Hawthorne area for 2.75 a pint. Very good beer.
Stone Cali-Belgique, Dogfish Head Theobroma, and I just can't drink enough Good Lyfe Sweet as the Pacific.. A few of the current favorites although it changes almost daily
Also 21st Amendment's newish ESB was spectacular.. Anyone in Medford who hasn't had Apocalypse Kandikornholio needs to go try it
Innis and Gunn Irish Cask, first time they've used a stout style beer in the series and obviously aged in irish whisky barrels (for 2 months). Definitely my favorite of theirs so far, though it would probably be called a porter in the US, not a whole lot of definite roast character.
P.S. Trying to work out an idea for my first stout homebrew, remember really enjoying Pike XXXXX Stout on tap, and its a fairly basic recipe. Pale, Crystal 60 or 120 (not completely sure), and Roasted w/ Chinook, Willamette, and Goldings hops. 7.0% 65 IBUs. Remember it being fairly black with a slight char, so the amount of roasted barley is probably significant, around 10 percent?

I was at Pike on Thursday. Picked up a growler of Space Needle IPA. Good drink. More of an English style IPA. Then I found a new brewery in Woodinville called Triplehorn. Grabbed a growler of their IPA (outstanding) and a growler of their red (nice & smokey). Also sampled their Milk Stout aged in Jim Beam barrels and on nitro. 10.5%. Holy shizzit it was good. I recommend anyone in that area to check them out. Said they've been open about 6 months.
Mac n jacks African amber mmm
Had a bottle of La Fin du Monde at family turkey dinner and grandma asks what's that. I say its beer, and she goes that not beer, beer is lighter. I tell her what your thinking of is only a very small percentage of what beer is.
Bottle of The Bruery Motherfunker, flatter than a bicycle tire. First bottle I had wasn't bad, too bad this was a goner. If you got a bottle drink it.
Slightly off topic, but since I can't find the old barbecue thread i wanted to share.
I'm doing my first pulled pork of the year using wood from my friends Orchard; pear, apple, and cherry along with Hickory chips and briquettes.
It's a 4.5 pound roast and has been on 6 hours. Probably have an hour and a half to go.
Drinking a Hop Stoopid by Lagunitas, the old standby.
I can be there in an hour. :)
Bottle of Deschutes Red chair always refreshing.
And you are more than welcome! It's still cooking because I'm having a hard time getting it to get up to 190 degrees. Stuck on 167. Going to be a late dinner.
Had enchiladas for dinner. Drank a couple of Sessions and a bomber of Elysian Savant IPA.
Waiting for Easter. Ordered a 3 lb. pork loin and the wife is going to roast it with herbs. I'll have to break out a growler of something nice to go with it. Not sure what yet.
Alright. I'm still waiting for my pulled pork to finish. Just opened Adam from Hair of the Dog.
Sweet, love me some Hair of the Dog. About to pop a bottle to finish up my week of vacation. Be back with a pic.
End of vacation beer.
Nice! Like the Buddha in the background too.
Thanks. Hope your pulled pork turned out great.

So let's say one of us were to be opening a brewery in Central Oregon. Hypothetical of course! Any name ideas for the brewery out there from our beer community?!
Love central Oregon for many reasons, but it's geologic features are second to none in the United States. It's the second most geologically diverse area in the world, and basalt is the abundant rock.

Thanks man ... keep em coming!
Yep...batch 3 2012. Still got a bottle each of batch 1 and 2.
Was going to suggest High Desert Brewery but a Google search turned one up in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Just had a Boneyard Notorious Triple IPA. 12% ABV and 80 IBU. Very tasty.
