PEAKS AND PINTS BEER HIGHLIGHTS
EMERGING SUNSHINE, Block 15 Brewing: Emerging Sunshine is a crisp golden IPA bursting with citrus, mango, and floral notes from Northwest grown Strata, Amarillo, Citra, and Centennial hops. Its crisp 2-row malt base is gently rounded out with additions of flaked barley and honey malt, while fermentation with American ale yeast lends Emerging Sunshine a clean, refreshing finish. 6.75%, 16oz cans
SUPER NEBULA, Block 15 Brewing: Each year, Block 15 matures Super Nebula — an imperial version of our Nebula stout — in unique bourbon casks, before selecting origin-specific cocoa nibs to complement the blend. 2019 Super Nebula was matured in Four Roses bourbon barrels and then conditioned on organic direct trade Tanzanian cocoa nibs. 11%, 500ml bottles
CRAFT CHOICE CLICKABLES
Germany now drinks two thirds of what it did in the 1970s. But expanding microbreweries and new attitudes shows it’s never been a better time to be a beer drinker in Germany.
Growler’s Taproom, the utilitarian refilling station on Southeast Hawthorne in Portland, has always functioned best as a well-scrubbed showcase for a 40-strong tap list appealing to high-level beer connoisseurs. But head down a rickety back staircase late some weekend night and you’ll find an equally well-curated selection of genre-spanning local artists performing amid academia-themed bric-a-brac.
The Pour Fool says Deschutes’ new “Da Shootz!” American Pilsner “is just simply a beautiful can ‘o beer. It would be just as beautiful in a bottle or a Mason jar or an old sneaker.”

DARK & HAZY NIGHTS WITH FORT GEORGE, Parkway Tavern: Astoria’s Fort George Brewery is the most ambitious stout-maker in Oregon, releasing more than 20 different big, dark beers every February and throwing Festival of the Dark Arts out at the windy coast. Once again, Peaks and Pints hung out at the brewery’s “dark” festival this year, sipping a wide array of some of the most flavorful and adventurous dark beers from around the nation on tap while watching glass blowers, tattoo artistry and wood and ice cravers. It was awesome. Fort George compliments the festival with a road show of several of its stouts, which lands at the Parkway Tavern tonight. 6 p.m., no cover, 313 N. I St., Tacoma
