I’ve posted many of these photos live on Facebook as they were happening, but for all the non-Facebook users out there, I thought I’d recap my recent trip west. Here are a few beer-related pictures form the trip with explanations at the bottom.
1) Just some of the bomber selection at our local supermarket Fred Meyer. 2) The Alaskan and Sierra Nevada selection and yes you can buy cases in a grocery store. 3) More bombers at Fred Meyer…one of each please. 4) A peek inside our fridge on day two 5) Two wonderful beers in some cool Parkbrau Pils glassware direct from Germany. 6) Great Divide Titan IPA in some more authentic glassware. 7) Two favorites easily available out west…it’s been a log time since we’ve been able to find a fresh Jamaica Red. 8) A little east coast Gemini in some cool German Romer Pilsener Special glassware. 9) Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale. 10) Yes we enjoyed the Great Divide Titan IPA and I forgot to snap a photo of the Lagunitas IPA. 11) My three favorites, Deschutes Abyss 2009, Alaskan Baltic Porter 2009 and Moylans Hopsickle. 12) Deschutes Inversion IPA with some Alaskan Amber Ale. 13) Our sampler tray at Northern Lights Brewery. 14) The tap handles at Northern Lights (LOVE the Solar Winds). 15) Deschutes Hop Henge Experimental IPA. 16) Widmer special Clinkerdaggers Unfiltered Amber Ale (over looking a great view).
