I do not even know where to start with this place, Drake and I were complaining about how long of a rail/bus ride it was from where we were staying in Portland but none of that mattered by the time we left here, just to give an overview of what this place is like, the eating area and bar is upstairs, the brewing area is downstairs with a den-style bar outside of it as well, they sell bottles of Cuvee, Apricot, Blackberry, Kriek, Vine, and Sang Royal currently, they have an awesome outdoor area with a bunch of tables, grass area, and barbeque pit, you cannot beat the atmosphere here, I will start off by saying that Ron and Curtis are two of the funnest brewers to be around of all time, as well as being very generous and inviting, we got here around 11:30 am and did not leave until well after 6:00 pm, that is saying a lot for how short of a time slot we had for the trip, this was hands down my favorite beer stop in Oregon, and perhaps ever, I went here with the expectation of trying a new beer or two, not a couple dozen, Ron came out of the brewing area to greet us, then we sat down at a small bar and some of the famed Mouton Rouge, great sour by the way, we started talking and soon realized that his daughter goes to the same very small school Drake and I graduated from, quite the coincidence, we had a few more beers there including a Belgian porter called Bain de Brugge and then Vienna Delight, then we "angered" Ron and he took us into the barrel room where over one hundred and thirty oak beasts currently reside, plans for three hundred total in the future, we grab a snifter and start tasting stuff straight from the wood, one of only a few times I have ever done this anywhere and it was simply awesome, we tried several things that have not been released yet and might not ever will, after that we made our way into the freezing cold storage room where I tried my favorite beer of the whole trip called Gold Yeller, wow that is an amazing sour and will sure wow people when it is released, we had some other great things in there like Nightfall and their Saison as well, later on we went outside and talked about our beer experiences and opened some vintages of his Apricot and Vlad the Impaler which I had enjoyed previously at last year's Strong Ale Festival in Carlsbad, later on we went back inside and had a bottle of a 2005 vintage barleywine that Drake and Ron had grabbed out of their storage room, we had a few more beers and some food, talked some more, and then were on our way, I could not even believe what we were able to see and do here, their beer is absolutely amazing and it frustrates me that it does not get the respect it deserves yet, give it time though as people will start to figure out how good this stuff really is, they do not use brettanomyces in their beer but the lacto they use gets better results in my opinion, it is also easier to work with and allows to experiment more and more, I expect huge things from this brewery in the future and hope I can keep in touch with these guys, I can go on and on and on about how much of a blast IO had at this place, do yourself a favor and pay them a visit

One of the last breweries I tried before flying home and I must say, it is the best in town. That is saying much because there are like a million of them around. Their sours are amazing and a must try. If I had more time , i would come back and try everything they have on tap. If you have time, check it out, you wouldn't regret it.

Cheers!
