This Weekend is the 12th Annual Portland Fresh Hop Beer Fest


The Portland Fresh Hop Beer Fest is this weekend! It's your chance to try fresh hop beers from a variety of innovative Oregon craft breweries, including our Fresh Hop Pilsner, brewed with Oregon grown Salmon Safe Perle Hops.

Fresh Hop Pilsner is a hop lover’s delight, the freshly harvested Perle hops impart floral and sweet fruit notes to this special edition Pilsner. The beer presents a deep golden hue and white foamy head with a delicate floral and spicy nose. A pronounced malt body and slight sweetness complement flavors of mango, papaya, and spice that end with a crisp hop finish. Combined, this makes for a refreshing late summer brew. (ABV: 7.3% IBU: 54)  This special brew is also available on draft at our Brew Pub in Hood River.

Date: October 2nd and October 3rd, 2015 
Location: Oaks Amusement Park, 7805 SE Oaks Park Way, Portland, OR 97202

It's Time for O'fest


Why fly to Munich for a genuine Oktoberfest Lager when this one could be inches from your lips?  O'fest is the latest release in our rotating line of classic beers called the Full Sail Pub Series.

This four-time, gold-medal winner is a smooth, malty lager brewed in the true Bavarian style, using two-row pale, Vienna, caramel and imported roasted Munich malts, moderately hopped with imported Czech Saaz and Yakima sterling hops. It is complex and beautifully balanced, with flavors reminiscent of honey, nougat and roasted nuts. O’Fest is now available in six-packs and on draft. Prosit! ABV 5.7% IBU 26

Oregon's Moonstruck Chocolate Craft Brewers Truffle Collection


Beer and chocolate, you bet!  We are so honored to be included in the Oregon Craft Brewers Collection by Moonstruck Chocolate Co

Inspired by Oregon’s farm-to-glass craft brewing movement, Julian Rose, Moonstruck’s Master Chocolatier, has teamed up with the original craft beer pioneers to develop a rich, full-bodied truffle collection. The collection features four distinct flavors–rich, nutty sweet, dark and intense, and fresh and hoppy, using four types of beer: wheat, brown, porter, and our ridiculously tasty Full Sail IPA.

The hoppy flavor of the Full Sail IPA ganache is a result of a clever blend of milk, dark, and ivory chocolates with just the right amount of beer reduction to bring out the freshness loved by so many beer drinkers. 

You can get purchase any single flavor, or the 12 piece mixed collection from Moonstruck Chocolate Co. online.

Dry Hopped Pale Brewed to Support Ales for ALS


We teamed up with our friends at Loftus Ranches and Yakima Chief - Hop Union and brewed a special Ales for ALS beer that benefits the ALS Therapy Development Institute. This year’s special hop blend includes Mosaic and Equinox combined with five experimental varieties.

This special Pale Ale is a straw colored brew with a soft malty body and moderate bitterness. Dry hopped with the special hop blend, aroma and flavor take center stage. Aromas of tropical fruit with notes of guava, melon and stone fruit on the palate. Balanced and delicious. Swing by our Brew Pub to join the exploration of experimental hops and support this great cause. ABV 6.9%, IBU 32
