A pungent ode to the most wonderful, lupulin time of the year: fresh hop beers. For this month’s Drink Portland review, that’s Laurelwood’s only-in-September version of Workhorse IPA, also available at the Fresh Hop Fest in Hood River.
This Drink Portland review coincided with the debut of pFriem Family Brewers in Hood River. If you’ve ever tasted this or any of their other Belgian-style beers and/or IPAs, you’re glad they did (debut).
The first of my monthly local beer reviews for Drink Portland. Because it’s fun to get paid a little bit to sit down and reflect on the beer in hand. In the summer of 2012, that beer was BridgePort’s seasonal ode to another of Beervana’s nicknames, Stumptown Tart, which I tied into both OBFs (Oregon Brewers Fest AND Oregon Berry Fest. Oh yeah.)
