ForeLand Beer
« on: September 22, 2021, 03:59:30 PM »
Today we went and harvested a couple hundred pounds of Pinot Gris grapes from one of our favorite local growers, @michael._.wright
These will be blended with some mixed culture beer, aged, then packed when ready. This is a very special collaboration for us and we are very excited for this wine/beer hybrid.


This was started by one of the brewers at The Commons (popular brewery that closed down and where Modern Times took over)

They've been doing lot's of great WCipas, lagers and pilsners.  A bit on the higher end side, but everything has been great so far.
i'm not good at putting this stuff in words but i can't see myself with anyone else except maybe urbanhack.

Sounds really good. I tried a couple beers from The Commons back in the day that were great.

The Commons had great stuff when I was in Portland.  They freaked out when we told them we watched a couple mice scurry into their pump room, though.

Radial patterns - Trade Winds IPA? Did we just make that up? The answer is, YES! You see we believe that beer should be a fluid thing (literally and figuratively). If types or styles never changed, we would just be drinking the same beers over and over again. If brewers never spread their wings a little, we wouldn't have things like Italian-style Pilsner and Cold IPA. All unique and enjoyable outside of the base "style". So what is a Trade Winds IPA? Well, what we imagined was marrying together the base of a West Coast IPA, the hops from a Southern Hemisphere IPA and the dry, delicate finish of some of the Japanese lagers through the use of rice.....and that is how Radial Patterns - Trade Winds IPA came to be.

They also just opened a new tap room in PDX called The Study!  They may have moved into my top 3 breweries out here.
