Ep. 324 – Hidden Gems (7/1/2019)
One of Portland's best kept secrets, is Upright Brewing, and if you can find it, you will be introduced to one of the city's most interesting and coveted brands. Having just expanded their hours, we are invited to a private Bottleshare Meetup by our friend from Tasting Nitch (Video Blog), featuring some of her favorite picks smuggled in from accross the pond (Arbor Ales, Pressure Drop Brewing, and Trappisten Abtei-Tropfen). Speaking with Head Brewer and Upright Brewing's founder Alex Ganum about his latest hits and departure from conventional ideas, as the landscape of his lineup becomes more deliciously daring. Also Warren Wills recounts about his recent escapades and beer commentary on his favorite picks, Beer enthusiast Don Scheidt brings a 'Rare Barrel' pick from A Sour Beer Co., as Other picks include Buriel Beer Co., Hill Farmstead, Upland Sour Ales, Bibine Red grape Ale, a wine from Liten Buffel in Buffalo NY, and Cellarmaker's Chronic Juice Hog. There were others but you'll have to listen or check out Instagram to find out. Damian goes North to meet a long lost brother, Bronwyn is overwhelmed by the reception of beers upon her return, and Ryan has an announcement in the same vein as well. So many different beers, on this episode of Brew Happy!
