Season 4, Episode 11 – This week, John returns from his recent trip to Portland, Oregon, and brings beers from The Commons and Baerlic with him.
John recently went on vacation with his girlfriend (Yvonne) of 13 years to the wonderful beer city of Portland, Oregon, and he brought back back eight beers from two breweries to share on the podcast. Turns out, there are A LOT of craft breweries in Portland, Oregon, and the hype you’ve heard is totally real. It’s way rad! John couldn’t bring #allthebeers back, so this week we’re focusing on two breweries that John was really impressed with.
First up is The Commons Brewery. The Commons is a GABF award-winning brewery that is making beers to please both the beer-geekiest hophead and the discerning Belgian-style beer drinker. After visiting the brewery, John could reasonably say that most of the brews from The Commons are totally on point and straight up delicious. You MUST stop by The Commons Brewery if you find yourself in Portland.
Next up is a brewery that is new to the 4B crew, Baerlic Brewing Company. This was a brewery that John and Yvonne kind of stumbled upon while wandering around downtown Portland. Turns out, they make really good brew that’s a bit outside of the norm for craft beer.
If you find yourself in Portland, Oregon and you’re looking for some excellent craft beer, rest assured that you’ll definitely be able to stumble into a random brewery (or 20) and drink something awesome.
Keep it up, Portland.
BREW THE SHIT OUT OF IT.
