Brewer's Notes



A traditional copper-colored German lager. Begins with rich malt aromas, followed by a smooth malty palate. Finishing with just a touch of hop spiciness and alcohol warmth.

German Munich and Vienna malts

Oktoberfest is out! Bottles available in Grants Pass right now. Coming to Medford, Cave Junction, and Brookings next week.


Firefighter Smokey Red Ale

Firefighter smokey red ale was inspired by the color of the sun one particularly hot smoky day in August. This beer is made to honor the hard work of everybody involved in the aggressive and swift response to the massive wildfires that threatened our communities the summer of 2014 and every summer. CHEERS!

Firefighter is back, on tap now!

We will be filling bottles on Wednesday.







Dark brown with aromas of crushed berries and a palate packed with malt complexity and depth. This brew boasts over 20 lbs. of Oregon’s favorite wild fruit per barrel, and just enough hops accentuate the berries and balance their sweetness.

Well we made it through July, kinda.  Got our new tanks in and have been working through all of the growing pains they brought. It's amazing how much deffered maintenance you find when upgrading a system. Our newest brewer Brandon Crews has been settling in. We really appreciate the skills he brings with him.

I need to check on my filter, gotta go...

We brewed the second half of a double batch of IPA today in Grants Pass, also did lots of clean up and organizing in GP today. Continued to work on the Bottling line trying to get put back together for next week bottling run, sorry stout drinkers no bottled stout this week until line is back up and running hopefully early next week.

Checked up on the three batches of Vienna Lager in Cave Junction and begin crashing the third batch of Vienna. First batch will be ready in about 3 weeks with consecutive batches following each week so for those Vienna fans we should have a steady supply coming out of Cave Junction through the Summer.   Also started the process of bringing up the Saison yeast in anticipation of brewing a Rye Saison next week.

Back in Grants Pass Dry hopped previous batch of IPA in anticipation of getting it filtered at the end of next, in time for the Memorial Day and Boatnik celebration.

Today I finished filtering the Kolsch, tore apart the Glue label drum, scrubbed out the hot liquor tank, and handful of other chores around the brewery and in the garden.
