Due to a snafoo at the UDABC we have ended up with 5 cases of North Coast Pale Ale. This beer has been called the "finest pale ale available nationally." There is a chance that we will be seeing this beer on a more regular basis. For now though this 5 cases is all we have.
This Fresh Hop Pale Ale is all about celebrating the hop harvest in the fall. Fresh picked hops have to be added to the brew immediately and in abundance. Roughly 680 pounds of Crystal hops from Doug Weathers' farm outside Salem, Oregon are added to each 120 barrel batch in addition to some dry kilned whole flower hops. That adds up to approximately 5.7 pounds of hops per barrel brewed. Another deliciously interesting beer in Deschutes' Bond Street Series.
