As an independent and employee owned brewery, you know that we put our hearts and souls into every drop. With Brewer’s Share we’re proud to showcase the people behind our award winning brews by introducing our individual brewers by name and beer.
In 2008 we created our small batch Brewer’s Share series as an opportunity for each of our individual brewers to express their creations to be shared on tap exclusively in our pub. Since our crew came up with so many great beers, we decided to share a selection of them with beer lovers everywhere.
The beers in our 2013 line-up include Vendell Veizen, Phil’s Existential Alt, Chris’s Summer Delight Berliner Weiss and Big Daddy J’s Imperial Lager. With each Brewer’s Share series beer each brewer picks a local charity or organization to receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the beer. We will release one Brewer’s Share at a time and a new beer will be released for each season.
Our Brewer’s Share Series is available in 22oz. bottles and on draft.
The fourth beer in the series "Big Daddy J's Imperial Lager" developed by Assistant Brewing Supervisor, Jason Munoz will be released in 22oz. bottles and on draft in September and will be available through autumn.
An easy-drinking small batch beer hopped with German Hallertau Hersbruckers to fuel your inner Beer Czar.
The J in Big Daddy J’s is our own Jason Munoz, an OSU brew-sci grad who recently became a bonafide Big Daddy. This big-yet-balanced lager celebrates the latest milestone in his big -- and now ever-so-slightly-less-balanced -- life. Congrats Jason!
According to Jason, BDJ is simple and delicious. It’s golden in color and hopped with Hallertau Hersbrucker hops, perfectly balanced so that it's clean and drinkable smoothness makes that 8% alcohol go down so easily. (IBU 28)
The inspiration for the name “Brewer’s Share” came from that mysterious portion that vanishes from a barrel during aging that brewers refer to as the “angel’s share,” and that led to “Brewer’s Share,” an equally mysterious offering that appears during inspiration. Brewer’s Share can also mean a unit of ownership, as in stock. Consider this program to be an Initial Pub Offering (IPO). Whenever you purchase a Brewer’s Share you get a unit of ownership – one share of the batch. As a shareholder you have the right to consume the beverage. In doing so you will also be investing in the public good – as each brewer not only chooses the recipe, they choose a local charity or organization that will benefit from each bottle sold – Which can bring an excellent return on ingestion (ROI).
With each Brewer’s Share series beer, Full Sail picks a local charity or organization to receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the beer. Jason has chosen to support Helping Hands Against Violence who is dedicated to serving victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking by focusing attention on said issues through education and outreach.

Dry hopped to amplify the aromas and flavor. Available in 22oz. bottles and draught. ABV 6.5% IBU 68

A new addition in 2013 to our Brewer's Share bottle line up "Vendell Veizen" was developed by Assistant Packaging Supervisor, Wendell Bryant it was released in 22oz. bottles and on draft in January.
Wendell is an accomplished home brewer who loves to share his creations with friends. We were so impressed with his Weizen Bock recipe, we let him loose in the brewhouse to work his magic on a supersize scale. Congrats, Wendell: looks like your circle of friends just increased by 100 fold. Wendell enjoys German style biers, is a big bock fan and likes malty beers, so he decided to make a Weizen Bock. Vendell Veizen is a bock style wheat bier, that is reddish amber in color and has tropical fruit flavors with a slight malt sweetness. "It’s got a good amount of body and flavor,” says Wendell. ABV 7.2% IBU 21.
Wendell has chosen to support OHSU Knight Cancer Institute with his Brewer's Share. OHSU Knight Cancer Institute is known worldwide for our contributions to the fight against cancer.
A generous amount of Munich and Vienna malts give this beer its copper color and toasty-caramel aroma. German noble hops provide complimentary bitterness and a clean, dry finish. The beer has been cold-conditioned for six weeks and goes down smooth. ABV 5.1% IBU 43.
When asked what his inspiration was for Phil’s Existential Alt, Roche replied, “Altbier is indigenous to Dusseldorf and Neanderthal man is indigenous to Dusseldorf. The ancient Germans thought a lot about their existence. Early myths contain some 200 verses about the creation of the world. The ancient Germans thought even more about beer, with 400 verses about beer making. "Phil's Existential Alt" celebrates our existence through our most celebrated beverage...beer!”
Phil has chosen to support Friends of the Children of Portland. Friends of the Children (FOTC) is a revolutionary mentoring program that provides paid professional mentors, called Friends, to our community’s most vulnerable children. FOTC selects youth in kindergarten and mentors them through high school graduation (12 ½ years). Through the support of Friends, children are learning the skills to become healthy members of our community.
Chris’s Summer Delight is an unfiltered, refreshingly tart small batch Berliner Weiss beer, brewed with 50% wheat malt and just a touch of Hersbrucker hops A perfect German style sour brew with a dry finish for a hot summer day. ABV 4% IBU 9.
When asked what the inspiration was for his beer Chris said simply “I love summer. When I found out that my beer was going to be brewed at the beginning of summer, I immediately thought of the perfect style, a Berliner Weiss. This is an easy drinking, unfiltered beer made with 50% wheat malt, a tiny amount of hersbruker hops and a touch of lactic acid to give it a refreshing tartness.” After careful and numerous tastings Chris’s beer was pronounced delicious. The beer is dry and crisp with a slight tartness and flashes of lemon. On a hot summer day this is the ultimate outdoor beer. It is traditionally enjoyed in Berlin beer gardens with splash of sweet red berry syrup or a green herbal syrup that work well against the tart and acid flavors of the beer.
Chris has chosen to support the Oregon State University Brewing Sciences Program, from which Chris is an alumnus. The program is one of the few in the nation that studies all aspects of producing beer, wine, and fermented foods.
