Beer Name:  The Passion of the Homer


Beer Description: In addition to being paired up with Alameda, we both decided to pair up with our local donut shops and use our favorite donut as inspiration. This Passion Fruit CDA is modeled after Blue Star's Passion Fruit Cocoa Nib donut, dry hopped with Galaxy, Citra, and Simcoe hops, and aged on 10 lbs/bbl of passion fruit puree. Although a darker ale, we decided to make this taste and appear to be on the lighter side. The result is light bodied and refreshing...Oh, it also goes great with the donut!


Beer Stats: 7.5% ABV. For IBUs ask Homer



Beer Name: Ding, Ding! I'd Like to Dry Hop a Toast


Marrying Occidental's passion for traditional German lagers with the Pacific Northwest's love for all beers dry-hopped, this rye lager is yours to have and to hold.   Dry-Hopped with Mandarina Bavaria.


Tasting Notes: Notes of tangerine and citrus on the nose with a dry, spicy, clean finishing mouthfeel from the rye and pilsner malt bill.


Beer Stats: 5.5% ABV, 35 IBUs

Yours Truly (Base Camp!)


Beer Name: Honey Chestnut Pilsner


Beer Description: 60 pounds of local NW honey along with 10 pounds of local chestnuts -roasted over an open fire, in house!- shine in this delightful southeast PDX collaboration, a smooth and crisp, solidly hopped, pilsner-style beer.  Drinks great on its own, or even better as one half of the most Oregon-centric black and tan ever created...


Beer Stats: OG- 12.4     TG- 2.4     ABV- 5.4%     IBUs- 25     SRM- 3.4




Beer Name: Nevørmind Oyster Stout


Beer description: We traveled to the cold, salty waters of Netarts Bay to source the oysters for our roasty, briney Oyster Stout from Nevør Shellfish Farm. Into the boil we put 12 dozen oysters and 45 liters of oyster "liquor". Welcome to the ocean in our "Surf n' Turf" collaboration with Uptown Market.


Beer Stats: 5.8% ABV, 28 IBUs




Beer Name:  Out with the Old


Beer description: Unfiltered American Style Dark Wheat with Smoked Cherries.  Subtle aromas of dark fruit and hints of smoke from the cherries provide a unique profile that is enhanced by the flavors of dark malts.  The addition of 40% malted wheat further provides a complex mouthfeel that is balanced out by just the right amount of hop flavor.


Beer Stats:  OG:11.2P AE: 1.7P ABV: 5% IBU: 20ish

Beer Name: Sir Douglas MacStouterson


Beer Description: An oak barrel fermented Irish Style Stout brewed with and conditioned on Douglas Fir, the official Oregon State tree. The dry roasty finish of the stout blends nicely with the sweet woodiness of tight grain Douglas Fir lumber, while the Douglas fir tips brighten the hop character a bit. This beer is designed to be enjoyed by itself or in an Oregon inspired Black and Tan by blending it with Base Camp's Honey Chestnut Pilsner.
