Fresh Hop Jörmungandr IPA

In Norse mythology, the Midgard (aka World) Serpent, named Jörmungandr, was the middle child of Loki & Angrdoða that Odin threw into the sea. It grew so large that it encircled the entire globe and grasped its own tail. When it releases its tail, Ragnarök (the war of the gods) will begin and Jörmungandr will face Thor and be destroyed before Thor himself dies.

This beer was made in honor of this epic tale. Generous amounts of locally sourced ingredients including, Bravo and Centennial hops, paired with all Mecca Grade specialty malts, make this a truly special PNW IPA. In this version, 19# of fresh Centennial from Crosby Hop farms were added to the whirlpool.

Mexican Lager

Inspired by the brewer’s from one continent and brewed by brewers on another, this Mexican Lager reflects that shared brewing history by bringing together two Green Dragon Brewers to create this refreshing and quaffable summer crusher. Made with pilsner malt and flaked corn, artfully complimented with subtle European hop varieties. Add a lime, if you’d like – no offense, it’s summertime. ¡Salud!

ABV: 5.1%

IBU: 18

Suggested Food Pairing: Rogue Hummus, Dead Guy Fish & Chips, Brewer’s Burger

Grisette

Grisette is a fairly obscure farmhouse style that evolved from the mining region in the Southwest of Belgium. Our interpretation consists primarily of Pilsner malt with a healthy portion of flaked wheat and rye gently hopped with Saaz and Comet for balance.

It’s a brilliant straw-colored beer with a persistently fluffy meringue-like head. Grisette presents itself with a sweet rustic grain aroma including notes of bubblegum, hay, and pepper. It finishes dry with lingering notes of white pepper and spicy hop character for perfect balance.

This is a superb summer crusher designed for warm days on a sunny patio!

Altbier (This is Portland, NOT Düsseldorf)

This intensely flavorful and bright copper ale incorporates Weyermann Barke Pilsner malt as its foundation and a touch of German crystal malt to produce deep rich malt aromas, fermented warm, like an ale, and then matured cold to create an extremely pleasant “lagerlike crispness,” that even Jeff would approve of.

With smooth, rich flavorful notes of toffee, fresh baked bread, hints of honey, and subtle underlying esters of dark fruit, this refreshingly clean specialty beer inspired by those found in Düsseldorf has arrived in SE Portland to be enjoyed by lager and ale fans alike!

Colden Summer IPA

This cold and refreshing beer pairs perfectly with a nice rainy June afternoon on your patio. Listening to the torrential downpours as you wait for summer to officially start on the 4th. In the meantime get ready with this cold IPA to help transition from winter warmers to summer sippers.

The grain bill for this beer includes 70% pilsner malt and 30% rice syrup solids, lending to a drier finish.

The Weihenstephan yeast offers a good balance of floral and fruity aromas, and gives clean flavors that pairs wonderfully with the hop bill.

Centennial, Mosaic, Amarillo and a hopshot for good measure. Punching your palette with notes of stone fruit, pine, bubblegum and citrus.
