Craft Beers From the Pacific Northwest, All the Time
From time to time, we will highlight the beer selection at one of our restaurant locations, and give you a brief bit of background on the brewery, as well as a link to their website. Check them out — we hand select each beer, and do our best to represent all the great breweries of the Pacific Northwest, featuring finely crafted seasonal selections whenever available.
Belmont Laughing Planet Local Beer Selection: October 2012
Bayern Dancing Trout Ale: Dancing Trout Ale is a German Wheat Ale, the filtered version of a true Bavarian Hefeweizen. It is aged a minimum of 28 days. All the way from Missoula, Montana.
Boneyard Diablo Rojo: Described as a malty, red ale with a subtle hop profile, one that makes it perfect for the fall season. More on Diablo Rojo.
Alameda Brewing P-Town Pilsner: From the heart of the Beaumont Village in Northeast Portland. This 5 Barrel (155 gallon) brewery began producing craft beers in 1996. More on the ales of Alameda Brewing Co.
Epic Brewing’s Pfeifferhorn Lager: A full strength and quaffable American lager with a hint of European flavor. Pfeifferhorn lager has a subtle malt flavor, and clean, crisp finish. A fine spicy and slightly herbal noble hop profile which barely lingers on the palate, 5.3% alcohol by volume. Utah’s first brewery since Prohibition (from Salt Lake City).
2 Towns Ciderhouse Pearadise: Semi-sweet pear cider, 7.5% ABV. Hand crafted in Oregon with all Northwest ingredients, Pearadise lives up to its namesake. Sweet and subtle hints of juicy pear and a light body truly make this pear cider a delectable treat. Made from 100% NW pears.
21st Amendment Back in Black IPA: Inspired by Paul Revere’s midnight ride, we rebelled against the British style IPA, embraced the more aggressive American version and then recast it in bold, brave, defiant black. Our Black IPA is a Declaration of Independence from the tyranny of the expected. Sourced from “far away” down in San Francisco.
