Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Hoppy Lagers On the Fly

Share

Sometimes, you just want a damn beer. You know the kind Peaks & Pints speaks. Beer that tastes like beer. Beer that you’d reach for while mowing the lawn or complaining to the cable company. Beer for sitting on the patio or watching a baseball game. Good old, regular, plain, normal, lager. Sorry, but brewers are messing with your damn beer. They’re making lagers hoppy. They’re switching out Galena hops for low-cohumulone hops —Simcoe, Magnum, Horizon — or going all in with American C-hops, adding citrus and tropical fruit flavors. These brewers know bitterness is often going to be more

Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, the founder and man behind Evil Twin Brewing, was a physics and English teacher in his native Denmark before starting Copenhagen’s Ølbutikken, a highly regarded beer store. He’s also an evil twin himself. His brother, Mikkel Borg Bergsø, brews under the Mikkeller label. Jarnit-Bjergsø, however, has done his best to outshine the good twin. He founded Evil Twin in 2010 as a nomadic brewery. Like his brother Mikkel, Jarnit-Bjergsø would concocts a recipe for his beer and hand it to another brewery with some extra capacity. This contracted brewing partner brewed, bottled, priced and sold the beer, then

Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Coolship Beer On the Fly

Share

A coolship (termed a koelschip in Flemish), for the uninitiated, is an open vessel fit for spontaneous fermentation; its large surface area allows unfermented beer, or wort, to cool more efficiently. Once the steaming wort is added to the coolship, it sits there, mingling with indigenous bacteria and wild yeast in the air that give wild beers distinct characteristics like funk and sense of place. Yes, it can be a scary situation for modern breweries. Brewers do everything possible to clean and sterilize their facilities to prevent “infections” of their equipment. However, in making beer that relies on wild fermentation,

Rob Lutz’ beer career began as a keg washer at Amnesia Brewing, the North Portland brewery that opened in May of 2003 on Mississippi Avenue. Amnesia moved to Washougal, Washington, then folded. Lutz went in the opposite direction. In late 2014, he and Dan Malech opened StormBreaker Brewing in Amnesia’s former spot. Their creative beer lineup earned awards. The duo opened a second spot in Portland’s St. John neighborhood, as well as expanded their Mississippi location, adding an axe-throwing platform.

It’s National Devil’s Food Cake Day! Devil’s food cake is a wholly original American creation and a truly classic confection; the earliest known recipe appeared in The Janesville Gazette in 1905. Devil’s food cake is richer, darker and fluffier than any regular chocolate cake can ever be — it has been called the chocolate version of an angel food cake. And it’s all thanks to the use of cocoa powder and the extra dose of baking soda it calls for. Recipes use hot or boiling water as the primary liquid. While chocolate cake usually calls for melted chocolate, devil’s food cake

His experience at De Kroon gave him the necessary skills to continue on with his own brewery.

Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Pale Ales On The Fly

Share

Pale ales originated in the UK in the late 1700s after reliable methods existed to produce pale barley malt, and that meant pale-colored beer. At first, the new pale malt was expensive, so the pale beers were limited to wealthier drinkers. But as pale malt became more affordable, pale-colored ales displaced dark ales in popularity, slowly overtaking porter and stout. Bass Brewery of Burton-upon-Trent, England made pale ales famous, thanks to their local hard water suited for the production of pale ale. This alkaline water not only brings an impression of dryness in the finished beer, but also rounds out

Anyone who’s ever sipped a finely crafted ale around a campfire probably finds some truth in the adage “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” Things are not looking good for our great nation’s purveyors of campfire hoppy holy water. To put it mildly. Although many breweries have completely overhauled their sales models in the past few weeks, finding ways to package their beer and sell it to-go from curbs or windows, or via delivery, this is not sustainable over the long term, as revenues for most have been cut in half, by two-thirds

El Dorado is a baby among some of the other hop varieties. Born and bred in Moxee Valley, Washington, CLS Farms developed El Dorado in 2008 and released it for sale in 2010. Still, there are three reasons why American born El Dorado is pulling serious weight in the craft beer scene. First, it’s all about the aroma in El Dorado — a bold, fruity aroma. Second, despite its strong aroma that elicits notes of citrus, pineapple, mango, apricot, and even Jolly Rancher candy, El Dorado has a remarkably strong alpha acid content, making it a good dual-purpose hop for

Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Cocktail Beers On the Fly

A crossover between the beer and bartending worlds has started emerging in breweries: beers inspired by the flavor profiles and recipes of cocktails. When beer is your job, you don’t necessarily want to go home and drink more beer. So it’s no shocker that on his or her down time, brewers like a stiff cocktail — which has led to craft beers that taste like cocktails; what a vicious, delicious cycle this is. The base is beer (usually, but not always, a strong one), but then the brewer became a bartender, measuring in specific ingredients that seem like novelties until

Contrary to common assumptions, the 5th of May — Cinco de Mayo — is not Mexico’s day of independence. That’s Sept. 15, the day in 1810 when Mexico declared its independence from Spain.

Viva Zaragoza! That battle ended on May 5, 1862, and Cinco de Mayo is now celebrated on May 5 all throughout Mexico but with added gusto in the state of Puebla, not to mention in
