Brew Crew Release: Cascadian Bitter

What: Green Dragon Brew Crew release of Cascadian Bitter
Wednesday, June 15th @ 5pm
ABV: 5.5%, IBU: 50

This week’s release from the Green Dragon Brew Crew was brewed in the style of an Extra Special/Strong Bitter with a distinctively Oregon twist. In addition to the classic East Kent Goldings hops, the Brew Crew used Oregon grown high-alpha Horizon hops for extra bitterness. The mash was made entirely of malted Full Pint barley, a variety developed at Oregon State University.

Despite the name, Cascadian Bitter is a simple, but elegant beer that brings together the best of British and Oregon brewing traditions. Drop in Wednesday for a pint!

CANCELLED: Crafts & Drafts

We canceled this weekend’s Crafts & Drafts Street Fair because of rain. The whole idea of Crafts & Drafts was to paint the intersection outside of the Green Dragon with some beautiful artwork depicting the skyline of Portland and the city’s history of craft beer.

But we can’t paint in the rain.

Stay tuned. We’re looking at other dates and when we find one we’ll post the new information here.

Brew Crew Release: Lube For Life IPA

What: Green Dragon Brew Crew release of Lube For Life IPA
Wednesday, June 8th @ 5pm
ABV: 7.8%, IBU: 54

Lube for Life IPA is the first in a series of distinctive beers from the Green Dragon Brew Crew that are full-bodied, smooth, tasty, and thirst quenching. Crafted from organic barley with a small portion of wheat and Munich malts, the Brew Crew infused this IPA with a generous portion of Cascade hops.

Each sip of Lube For Life IPA is resinous and packed with flavor. This is not an aggressive IPA but rather a fresh blend of malt and lasting hops – without the lobotomy.

Join us at the Green Dragon this Wednesday for a pint of Lube For Life IPA.

Brew Crew Release: 1872 Pale Beer

What: Green Dragon Brew Crew release of 1872 Pale Beer
Wednesday, June 1st @ 5pm
ABV: 6.7%, IBU: 146 (not a typo)

With this week’s release, the Green Dragon Brew Crew takes us back in time to what beer tasted like two centuries ago. 1872 Pale Beer is made with a recipe from the 1872 edition of William Dick’s Practical Receipts and Processes. The Brew Crew strived for accuracy, using historical brewing methods and ingredients. The recipe features hops, malt, and yeast strains available in the 1870s.

1872 Pale Beer was brewed in collaboration with Oregon State University Archives for Portland State University’s June 4th Archaeology Roadshow.
Drop by for pint this Wednesday. Can you remember the last time a history lesson was so much fun?

Meet The Brewer: Fremont Brewing

What: Meet The Brewer with Robert Fulwiler of Fremont Brewing
When: Thursday, May 26th @ 5pm
Brews: Dark Heron IPA, Gose, Bourbon Barrel Abominable, Summer Ale, Sister Imperial IPA, Interurban IPA

Robert Fulwiler of Fremont Brewing drops in tonight with an amazing selection of brews. When are you going to see so much variety from one brewer in one night? This will be a Meet The Brewer to remember. Drop and and join us for a pint.

Fremont-Brewing-BW-logo copyThe Tap List:

Dark Heron IPA: The one off official beer of Emerald City Comicon. 60 IBU, brewed with HBC 438®, Mosaic, and Chinook hops. ABV: 6.6%

Gose: The gose is created through the infusion of an organic Indian coriander and sea salt infused into our kettle Sour Weisse.

This time around they used an incredible sea salt made in the San juan Islands by Brady Ryan. This salt lends a rich briny character that really makes this batch of Gose shine.

Bourbon Barrel Abominable (BBOMB): A bourbon barrel-aged edition of Fremont’s winter ale has a warming spicy aroma and rich carmelly notes of bourbon, wood and vanilla added to dark roasty chocolatey malt flavors and subtle hopping. 14.5% American Strong Ale, 100% bourbon barrel aged.

Summer Ale: A SMASH beer, all Amarillo hops and 2-row malt Pale Ale. Tangerine in a glass. ABV: 5.2%

Sister Imperial IPA: Fremont’s current Imperial Series. Brewed with Calypso, Cascade, Chinook, and Columbus hops. ABV: 8.5%, IBU: Mind your own business.

Interurban IPA: A year round IPA. Named after an iconic statue in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. Brewed with Chinook, Centennial, and Amarillo hops. ABV: 6.2%, IBU 80.
