Guest Beer:

Ground Breaker Brewing - Portland, OR

Olallie Ale, 4.5% ABV, 30 IBU

"Olallie is brewed with blackberries and rose hips and then finished with copious amounts of Crystal hops for a classic Northwest aroma.  Olallie is made light and dry with only a hint of bitterness."


Angie's Mystery Beer:

North Coast Brewing Co. - Fort Bragg, CA

PranQster Belgian Style Golden Ale - 7.6% ABV, 20 IBUs

"Belgian Ales represent the height of the brewers’ art. Sophisticated brewing techniques, yeast blends, and unique flavoring elements have elevated the beers of Belgium to the status enjoyed by wine in other countries.

PranQster follows in this tradition using a mixed culture of antique yeast strains that produce a floral nose, a full fruity flavor, and a clean finish."
