This amber-colored Extra Special Bitter is the perfect break from your current adventure, whether you’re kickin’ back with a pint in our taproom or taking a growler or six pack time-out in the mountains or on the water. Vienna and Munich specialty malts lend a rich, satisfying body that’s carefully balanced by a selection of classic Oregon-grown Willamette and Cascade flavor and aroma hops. Take a break with our Trailside ESB, because there’s no need to rush past the good stuff.

On only the clearest of nights, you can see two bright flashes on either side of the moon.  These phenomena, called moon dogs, are fitting for the name of this brew-- a session lager that’s equal parts hoppy bright and toasty dark.  We brought together a clean, low-ABV lager body with the chocolate and roast of specialty malts, then dry-hopped with our favorite new experimental hop varietal to let its tropical hop character shine.

Our Late Hop Helles is fermented with lager yeast, and showcases Base Camp's proprietary lagering cellar techniques that result in a classic pilsner malt character and smooth, clean finish.  Sound like an ordinary Helles lager?  Not so fast- its only hop addition is in the whirlpool, not the brew kettle, meaning huge hop taste and aroma with low bitterness.  Hoppy and quaffable, the Hop in the ‘Pool is a perfect blend of innovation and tradition.

A Belgian Witbier in appearance and malt bill, the Lost Meridian Wit has a cloudy and opaque white color and silky mouthfeel from the use of loads of wheat and oats.  Then the recipe takes a firmly untraditional twist.  Meridian hops deliver a brightly citrus and refreshing mimosa-like character with flavors of orange and champagne dominating the aftertaste.

We took the opportunity to brew an homage to the total solar eclipse, which travels across Oregon this summer, for this year’s Cheers to Belgian Beers.  Our idea is a simple one:  take a fruity, spicy, daylight-pale Belgian tripel, and brew it with roasted malt extract for unexpected and radical total darkness.  Behind this beer’s black appearance, you’ll find all the flavors of spice, berries, and toffee you’d expect from a traditional Belgian tripel.  Cheers!

A four-petalled Trillium flower is the Northwest’s version of a four-leaf clover, a touch of magic that you can find only so often out in the great outdoors.  This mellow, mild, Brettanomyces-inflected pale is a true four-petal spring beer, brewed with malted oats and wheat for a velvety smooth body and knocked out with Meridian and Horizon hops.  We then racked it into neutral oak barrels to finish on Brett, making for a bright, dry, fruity beer.  Limited quantity available.

Our take on the malt-forward fest biers of Bavaria.  Extensive malt aroma and taste trials over several years led us in crafting this recipe, a subtly-hopped amber lager that rides the crest between dry and full-bodied, not too sweet but definitely not lacking in deep, malty goodness.  Lagered on our in-house toasted oak to round out this brew’s flavor profile.

The latest installment in our Barrel Fermented & Conditioned series of farmhouse-style ales.  The French brewing tradition of bières de mars (lit. “beers of March”) lives on in this slightly hazy, mellow golden farmhouse ale.  Fermented with saison and Brettanomyces yeasts in oak barrels for a true farmhouse ale.  Finished with our favorite new experimental hop varietal, which combines with the Brett character to contribute bright, tropical flavor and aroma.

Our yearly anniversary beer, brewed in celebration of our fourth year spent doing what we love.  A tart and funky strong amber saison.  It showcases pilsner malt, wheat malt, and flaked wheat, then fermented with our two favorite saison yeasts.  We then add to the complexity of this beer with an extended aging in red wine barrels, where it’s dosed with brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and Willamette Valley-grown Pinot Noir grapes from Goschie Farms.

Fruity, floral hops meet velvety, dark malt in our Cascadian Dark Lager.  It delivers loads of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine aroma thanks to Meridian hop additions at knock-out and in the lager tank.  Light sweetness and toasty, roasty malt provide counterpoint to a solid hop bitterness.  For a beer of this dark color, the Celestial CDL finishes surprisingly light and clean thanks to its fermentation and lagering character.

Back by popular demand, the Ultra Gnar Gnar is crafted to deliver big hop taste and aroma over a smooth velvety ride of specialty-malted barley and oats.  It features six different Oregon-grown flavor and aroma hop varietals, adding notes of citrus, pine, and tropical fruit to this unique IPA.  As good as first tracks in fresh powder, or a perfect set on your last paddle out.  Harness the Gnar!

We don’t filter our beer, but we have a beer filter we’d inherited with our other brewing equipment.  Get rid of it?  NAH.  We modified and rad-ified it, so now we have our very own, one-of-a-kind, custom, in-line hop infuser.  Like fresh, bright hop character?  This is the brew for you.  Knocked out in batches of only a few kegs at a time, we’ll have a new Smooth Hoperator beer on tap regularly.  Inquire with taproom staff for info on today’s offering.

The S'more Stout is an absolute all-star: Aromas of chocolate, coffee, fig, and smoke invite you in to a gigantic maltiness that is distinct in its smooth and refined character, with flavors of chocolate and hints of smoke mingling with rich caramel, fruit, and warming alcohol.  Top with a roasted marshmallow-- its sweet, toasty nose a perfect complement for this deep, complex stout-- and you have the ultimate S'more experience!

This trek to the frontier of craft beer innovation starts in England with a solid IPA backbone, on to Belgium with its mixed Brettanomyces fermentation, through the fruit tree groves of the west coast for some mellow, subtly fruity complexity (fruit additions change periodically-- check with your server for current variety), and finishing in the Willamette Valley for a very not-subtle, imperial-strength dry hop addition in the conditioning tank.

Times like these had our brewers crafting the perfect brew for these dark days, a roasty and rich imperial stout fermented in a mix of red wine and bourbon barrels.  Chocolate in the nose, malty and oaky up front, tart and funky-- thanks to a dose of brettanomyces-- to finish.  Built to warm the body and soul in the darkest of months, best enjoyed at twilight hunkered near a raging fire, or at sun up when you’re waiting for first light to hit the mountain, river, or trail.

The latest in our series of all-Brettanomyces fermented, soured fruit beers.  It’s bright and acidic from a native malt-based Lactobacillus kettle souring, making for a low pH that allows our Brett strain to ferment quickly and cleanly.  Its tart acidity provides a perfect opportunity to showcase the bright and tart flavors of fresh Oregon plum, added as a puree during the later stages of fermentation.

Literally “Hood Shadow,” an homage to our city’s mountain.  Developed by brewer Bizzy Gross of the Timbers Army Fermentation Corps for this year’s Duane Graf Homebrew Competition (which, by the way, she won by a landslide), then scaled up to shareable quantities by a coalition of Bizzy and the Base Camp brew crew.  A Northwest twist on the traditional Bavarian wheat ale, with fruit and spice aromas playing in step with Mt. Hood hops.  Prost!
