Big Beer Friday in Portland

Watching my RSS feeds as I work during the day often brings me news to write about for clients. It also brings me considerable distractions – like the fact I’ll be wandering Portland today picking up some big beers which have surfaced in 22 ounce bottles. Check these babies out:

Lucky Lab Pavlov’s Russian Imperial Stout (port barrel-aged…port barrel from Abacella winery…sat for a good six months soaking up all the complex flavors of the wine soaked oak.)
Deschutes Abyss (imperial stout, aged in French oak, pinot noir, and bourbon barrels since March.)

If you get cut off by a Prius near Belmont Station or Lucky Lab on Hawthorne this afternoon, sorry in advance – I’m just on a hunt for good winter beers :)

    Plenty of great winter brews out there – not just at Belmont Station… The NW Lab, Amnesia, anyone pouring the Ninkasi Oatis, and on and on.
