The Summer of Lagers

White Owl Social Club, 1305 SE 8th
Sat-Sun 11a to 9p
$20 = mug & 10 tix
Adults only

There haven't been this many lagers in Oregon since Weinhard bit the dust.  I don't know what Jung would say about it, but I know there's something in the collective unconscious.  I go to Germany and the Czech Republic, develop some kind of persistent lager itch, and glory be--brewers back home offer dozens of chances to scratch it.  If you have not, like me, been hoovering up these fine tipples, you have an excellent opportunity over the weekend: Lagerfest, an inaugural effort at showcasing some of these little lovelies.  You will see over to the right a list of the beers (click to enlarge), and therefore observe that it's long enough that even if you have been hoovering, there's plenty of reasons yet to go.


  1. Uinta win's for best obscure beer name pun

  2. It was a well-run fest, except for the fact that they were only pouring half the beers at a time, and there was no indication in their posters/promo material that this would be the case. Only 1 of the Base Camp beers was pouring, and the none of the things I was looking forward to trying for the first time (10 Barrel, Burnside, Bridgeport, Ft George, Lompoc Saaz All, and a couple others) were pouring when we went on Saturday.

    I'm not sure if this is an attempt to save money buy only renting one reefer truck, or a sneaky way of trying to get people to come both days, but either way I wasn't a fan of the system.
