East Side Bitter (ESB)

This English ale comes to the Eastside of Portland, as part of the latest in the Garagleand series. Inspired by the brewers of Burton-on-Trent, this ale is built on traditional British roots using a single-step infusion mash, combining floor malted Halcyon Barley malt, biscuit, crystal, and a touch of chocolate malt. This amber ale delivers notes of bread and biscuit, with restrained toffee flavors, all balanced with the perfect trio of Northern Brewer, Fuggle and Willamette hops – and Burtonized water for an authentic experience.

Drachenrauch – Dragon’s Smoke

This traditional smoked Märzen is part of the Garageland series from one of our newest GD brewers. Brewed for the last ten years in a small garage in SW Portland, this recipe has been scaled up, cleaned up, and has gotten some new boots.

Utilizing a single decoction mash, and built on a hearty base of Weyermann Smoked Malt, this lager provides a depth of balance between the beechwood smoke profile that carries throughout and the elegant and clean German amber lager character.

So get out your b*!l$#it detector and have a pint or two!

Crossover Milk Coffee Blonde

Crossover MCB bridges the artificial divide of what can be. This category defying ale is built on Maris Otter, flaked oats and barley, and English hops artfully added to balance sweetness of the malt and lactose sugar.  ‘Dry-beaned’ with Stumptown’s Holler Mountain imparting the bright aromas of milk chocolate, toffee, and pleasant notes of crisp green bell pepper.

Like DRI’s influential album by the same title, this is a beer for all, no matter the length of your hair, (or time of day!).
