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.
It’s back! This latest release in our Wildwood series of barrel-fermented farmhouse ales won gold at OBA 2017. It’s an annual celebration of the hop harvest, bringing together everything we’re most excited about in brewing: top-shelf Bavarian malt, multiple saison yeasts plus a locally-isolated brettanomyces strain, an all-barrel fermentation and conditioning, and family farm-grown Strata fresh hops straight from the Willamette Valley.
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 journey through Belgian and Pacific Northwest brewing traditions, demanding step-by-step attention and care. This saison’s crisp body melds with the floral, citrusy, pepper spice of Grains of Paradise. A hint of specialty honey malt lends balance, while Willamette Valley-grown dry-hop additions round out this beer’s spectacularly complex aroma. Truly, this is a beer that’s worth our efforts.
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. Fully lagered with our proprietary conditioning technique to round out this brew's flavor profile. Pröst!
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.
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.
Our Nomadic trek continues! Months of careful aging in a blend of red wine and spirits barrels changed this big, bold, brett-inflected IPA into a tart, fruity, super complex and category-bucking beer. Brettanomyces and wild flora continued their slow fermentation processes to spin off flavor and aromas of stonefruit, citrus, and funk. These profiles will change as you let your glass slowly warm. Enjoy!
