Oakshire Brewing
« on: October 16, 2010, 10:23:13 PM »
Anyone had any of their beers?

My brother in law brought me a mixed case of 22s, and they're universally good. 

The rye is smooth and easy drinking, although a tad sweet to me.  And no aftertaste to speak of.

The amber is not quite as hoppy as I want it to be, but really good anyway.

The espresso stout is a great beer, firm coffee flavor and well balanced.

I'll let you know about the IPA and Harvest when I get there . . .

I've had many Oakshire beers.  They're good people and big supporters of homewbrewers.  AAMOF, we're holding our club's annual Learn to Homebrew Day event at the brewery.  Great people, great beers.  Try their Harvest Ale or Watershed IPA and I think you'll be impressed.

That's great Denny, I always like to hear when it's good people behind good beer.

I'm looking forward to the harvest and IPA, but couldn't get to them last night. :)

Haven't had the opportunity to try any of these yet but if I'm ever out your way I'll look them up.  8)

Their brewer was at my local brewpub before moving west and is a hell of a good guy. I'm glad to hear good things about his beers; I just wish I could get some to try out here.

Matt _is_ a hell of a good guy!  Maybe you should get out here and try the beers in situ!  :)

Yes, Matt was well liked here.  I am waiting for the day when I can make it out there to try some of his beers at Oakshire.

We'll definitely give it a try next time we're in the PNW.
