–New Beers–

Structures Brewing

Group Think IPA

4.7% ABV. Brewed with oats and hopped at the same rate as many of their double IPAs.

Summer IPA at 4% ABV. Brewed with oats and spelt. Hopped with citra, amarillo, chinook and simcoe.

Aslan Brewing

Mines of Moria (Dry Hopped Grisette)

5.5% ABV // light body + lemon & lavender notes + refreshing

An interpretation of a nearly forgotten style, said to once be brewed for the miners from the Hainaut province of Belgium. Similar to a saison, this beer is quite refreshing. It draws upon use of Mistral hops in both the whirlpool and dry hop to create a faint fruitiness reminiscent of sweet lemon peel with herbal notes of lavender. A fascinating farmhouse strain from a tiny brewery in Belgium was employed for fermentation, which gives this beer a distinct, yet balanced farmhouse character.

Menace Brewing

Santiam SMASH

Brewed with two-row pale malt and hopped with santiam
