Old Town Brewing’s Award Winning Beer in Bottles
Tuesday, June 09, 2015
These bottles can be purchased at various retail spots throughout Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washinton. The flavors are OTB’s Shanghai’d IPA and Sun Dazed Kölsch.
OTB describes their Shanghai’d IPA as being a medium-bodied IPA with grapefruit as one of the signature ingredients. Meanwhile, the Sun Dazed Kölsch has a “crisp, clean but fruity aroma and flavor.”
OTB is very excited about the new bottles. To share the excitement, they’re in the process of visiting some of Portland’s local bottle shops to host tastings. The next tasting event is at Saraveza Bottle Shop and Tasty Tavern on June 10th.
At the event, guests will taste brews, ask questions, and purchase some of the bottles.
“Our beer reflects the personality of this incredible city and the people in it. We could not be more excited for our beer to be in the hands of the people whom inspired it, and to share our beers with enthusiasts across the region. It’s a huge moment for our whole team, to see our bottles on the shelves next to the breweries we admire, and truly marks a huge milestone for us – I’m so proud,” said Adam Milne, owner of Old Town Brewing.
Old Town Brewing Bottle Release Event, Saraveza Bottle Shop and Tasty Tavern, 1004 Killingsowrth St. Wednesday, June 10th, 6-9 pm.

Upright Brewing Oyster Stout
Oyster Stout sounds strange, right? Just imagine your stout with a salty kick and a mineral taste at the end. It turns out to be very flavorful, time tested concoction. Locally, Upright Brewing makes a tasty one in their seasonal portfolio and looks like it will be released shortly after the first of the year.
Rogue Ales Beard Beer
While most beer is brewed with carefully cultivated yeast strains, there are any number of wild yeasts that can be used, though this one is decidedly the strangest. Somehow Rogue Brewer John Maier “discovered” a natural yeast ideal for brewing in his beard. Yuck. Stylistically, an “American Wild Ale, if you are really interested in trying it yourself, you can buy a bottle here.
Wynkoop Brewery Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout
What started – and should have ended – as an April Fools’ Day prank led to the release of Wynkoop Brewery’s Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout. They only sell it in two packs. Get it? I won’t suggest where you might buy this one, dear reader, because I like you and would not do that to you.
Rogue Ales Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale
Rogue Ales Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale has been on the market for a while and is ubiquitous in Portland, as are the other mistakes they brewed to taste like Portland’s biggest tourist trap’s products. Good for Rogue for hopping on the tourist bandwagon by partnering with Voodoo Doughnuts on this uniquely Portland beer. This beer drinker has to admit that drinking this beer forced me to admit that not everything is actually better with bacon.
Evil Twin Turkish Delight
Me: What does Turkish Delight taste like?
Beer store clerk: Um, it tastes like Turkish Delight.
Me: Um, okay. What is Turkish Delight?
Clerk: Just try it.
Tastes like put coffee and cardamom in my darker ale. Nuff said? I’m not chomping at the bit to try either Turkish Delight or the Evil Twin’s Turkish Delight beer again. It is available locally at Belmont Station if you are interested.
Bison Brewing Organic Gingerbread Ale
Ginger. Nutmeg. Cinnamon. No I’m not talking about a dessert or even a hot beverage but Bison Brewing’s Organic Gingerbread Ale. Somehow, it works to create a great flavored porter. Yum. Rumor has it that John’s Market still has a few sixers of this one left.
Rogue Ales Sriracha Stout
Apparently 2014 was the Year of the Rooster, with millions more discovering Sriracha, a simple staple in Vietnamese restaurants (and a product that has stayed stocked in my fridge since at least 2005). Never one to miss hopping on a bandwagon, Rogue Ales brewed a stout with it. Shocking, right? It tastes exactly like you’d expect: like someone pranked you by sneaking some hot sauce into your otherwise tasty stout when you went to the loo. The only place to find this gem is at Rogue Hall until more is released after the first of the year.
