Instagram Outsider: Tiger Gourding, Whip Opening, Hop Harvest Finale

Be sure to keep tagging us @peaksandpints for your chance to be featured on Peaks and Pints Instagram Outsider. And, please, wash your damn hands; wear your damn mask.

What’s a Doomsday Clock? Perhaps the question is not what it is, but more importantly, what time does it read. First designed in 1947 by artist Martyl Langsdorf for the magazine’s cover, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, the clock is symbolic of the likelihood of a human-made global catastrophe. Langsdorf, whose husband, Alexander Langsdorf, worked as a physicist on the Manhattan Project, used the clock to indicate the urgency needed to warn the public of the dangers of such powerful weaponry. What time is it now? Over the years, the amount of minutes to Midnight has waxed and waned due to world events. In 1947, it was 11:53 (7 minutes until Midnight). The most time until Midnight was in 1991 at the end of the Cold War (17). Since then, the clock has inched closer to the stroke of global catastrophe, reaching an unprecedented 100 seconds to Midnight at the beginning of this year. The reasoning identifies the existential threat of nuclear war and climate change as main factors, but warned that these dangers have been exacerbated by “sophisticated, technology-propelled propaganda” and by “influential leaders that denigrate and discard the most effective methods for addressing complex threats—international agreements with strong verification regimes—in favor of their narrow interests and domestic political gain.” Given the events that have occurred since the Bulletin’s January clock setting, it would be easy to surmise that Midnight is even fewer seconds away. Still, to us, the Doomsday Clock is a symbol of hope, a reminder that no matter how many seconds there are, there is still time to turn back the clock. We named this beer Doomsday Clock not to capitalize on gloom, but to spread awareness of the genuine threats our world faces. Whether you buy this beer or not is irrelevant. Should the contents of this bottle give you the time to consider the dangers we all face as human beings, to scrutinize what we hold to be true (or what others claim to be the truth) then here you go. It’s getting late, and right now would be a good time for some thoughtful (and hopeful) time management.

We’re thrilled to announce the release of The Untended Bloom, a Skagitonian barrel aged saison, and The Dry Table Boysenberry Mead, an effervescent mead refermented with locally grown boysenberries. These products were created to be the official beer and mead of Tulip Town. We applaud Tulip Town’s innovation over this challenging year and wanted to support their goals to showcase local products and foster a healthy local economy. Both of these beverages will be available for sale by the glass and bottle at Tulip Town starting tomorrow 10/3 at their membership planting party and throughout the harvest season as well as at our taproom and with select retail partners. Label art contributed by Emma Young and Robin Crandall.

⚡⚡⚡Fresh Hop Season⚡⚡⚡ . . Fresh Fuzz…this year we teamed up with @royfarms_hops and used Strata pellets that were harvested, kilned, pelletized and brewed with, within 72 hours. Yes we know, these are not wet hops…but they are as fresh as they come. Its a peach and orange deeelite! $18 per four pack. 7.2% abv . . Fresh Wave…we have brewed iterations of this beer with @brouwerscafe a couple times over the years…as they were our very first account nearly five years ago! Thanks, guys! This year we added an embarrassing amount of Citra into this beer…to the point of calling it oily AF. Pours like that orange drink we all had at the mall years ago, and smells of mango, papaya and whatever other fruits that sound cool. It’s bitter, but it will mellow over the next few weeks. $22 per four pack. 8.2% abv.

“More often than not, it’s Pelican that we’re drinking. I love their beer, but the tradition is much more than that — it’s a matter of community. When I drink their beer, I’m always reminded of how much living on this coastline has taught me.” “When I first moved here, I’d never lived in a small community, much less one as special as Pacific City. I didn’t realize how important it is: the cohesiveness, the inter-connectedness, the support. It’s so much more important than most people realize. That ethic affects the way I fish, the way I live, and the way I drink beer. It’s what I want. The power of community is one of the most important things I’ve learned in my time on this coast — and in my life.” Joe’s eyes crinkle with humor as he recounts his tales, and his eyes scan the horizon. He’s counting the hours to twilight, remembering that he’ll be pulling his suburban into the parking lot at Pelican Brewing before the next day’s dawn. ~ Read the full story of Joe’s adventures > link in bio #UPDRIFTADVENTURE ~ Adventurers Joe Hay from @haystackfishing / Photos by: @alexandrapallas + Writing by @charlotteaustin

For the seventh installment of our in-state collaborations to celebrate 10 Years of Breakside, we have teamed up with our friends from NW Portland: Von Ebert Brewing. . Even though Von Ebert is a relatively new brewery, it’s helmed by folks who have had huge influences on Breakside in the past 10 years. Sean Burke has been a friend of Breakside since day one, and he helped Scott and me move the original Dekum tanks down into the basement! Sam Pecoraro is a close friend as well, and as many of you know, he brewed for us in Milwaukie for about seven months between 2017 and 2018 before leaving to take over the Pearl pub for Von Ebert. The beers those guys made at The Commons was a huge influence on us as well. . Together, we decided to take on the challenge of making a new West Coast double IPA. Our goal was to make a DIPA that was as pure an expression of hop character as possible, with little interference from esters, yeast, or malt sweetness. The hops in question are Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin, Waimea, and Comet– two North American stunners that provide huge amounts of grapefruit, berry, mango, and sweet pine. The two Southern Hemisphere varietals, known for their intensity, add in notes of petrol, canteloupe, papaya, and white Bordeaux. . Who is Giuseppe Warlock you ask? They’re the Keyser Soze of Northwest hops, the talisman of clear IPAs, a graffito scrawled in a bathroom, a Nessie, perhaps real, perhaps not, an unsubstantiated belief, and the spiritual godparent of this delicious beer. . . . . #breakside #breaksidebrews #breaksidebrewery #seekandenjoy #cheers #supportlocal #drinklocal #travelportland #supportlocalbusiness #independent #employeeowned #beersnob #beer #breweryoftheyear #explore #pnw #portland #collaboration #collab

RELEASING THIS WEEKEND: FLICKER Fall might officially be here on the calendar, but at Block 15 it hasn’t truly arrived until we’ve got Flicker IPA on draft and in 16oz cans—so let’s celebrate the season this Saturday at our south Corvallis Tap Room and Brewery. Inspired by Autumn’s warm days and crisp nights, Flicker was designed to spark conversation and community while delivering a delightfully unique hop profile with notes of melon, lychee, stone-fruit, and pine. As always, our Drive-Thru sales remain the only place for you to buy fresh kegs and corni-fills for your kegerator alongside cans and bottles of both seasonal and year-round beers, vintage selections from our cellar, and crowlers filled fresh from our taps. Pre-orders for Flicker are now open through the link in our bio (https://b15tr.square.site), and will remain open until Friday at 9am. Flicker will then be available on draft and in 16oz cans when our Tap Room opens on Saturday. Flicker will be brewed often, canned fresh, and delivered to the finest bottle shops and grocery stores around the Pacific Northwest all throughout the fall. #DeliveringHoppiness #OregonBeer #CraftBeer #Block15 #FlickerIPA
