Oregon Brewers Festival 2010 First Glimpse

Here's a quick list of what I've liked and disliked so far at the OBF.

Liked: Lompoc Son of C-Note, Oakshire Buzz Tent Pinot Strong Ale, Rogue 21,Green Flash Le Freak, Bayern Bock .

Disliked: Great Divide Hoss, Rock Bottom Oud Heverlee, Bruery 7 Grain Saison.

At first I liked the Natian Red Ale, but Angelo pointed out it has a kind of nail polish flavor  (he's right).  So, maybe worth a try, but beware.

Anyone have other recommendations pro or con?


  1. I really enjoyed the Hop Valley Brewing Alpha Centauri Binary.

  2. Oh good, Hop Valley is on my list of things to try, didn't get to it yet!

  3. Great, your three dislikes are among my list of beers to try at the fest. Looking forward to comparing notes later in the weekend.

  4. That's funny, I really liked the 7 Grain Saison. I was looking of for a clovey wheat beer, and enjoyed that one a lot.

  5. I liked all the ones you liked, but I liked all the ones you didn't like, too! Though the Bruery's saison was not the strongest, and the Oud Heverlee can only be appreciated when you have the Heverlee City Council brochure (sorry--more on that in the future). Hoss was fun and tasty, but I couldn't defend it to beer geeks.
