The heart of Oregon wine country also grows #craftbeer innovation

New article in the Oregon Beer Growler’s February issue

For five years now, I’ve been writing monthly for the Oregon Beer Growler. For both beer fans and for folks in the business, the OBG talks about all things in Oregon’s craft beer industry.

For the new February 2018 issue, I got to talk with the founders of 2 new fascinating breweries in McMinnville, Oregon. This wee place in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley wine country is no unlikely #craftbeer hotspot though. It’s also the home to some snazzy taprooms, and to Heater Allen Brewing, one of my personal fave breweries and one of the few US breweries that exclusively brews craft lagers (email me if you want to know why that’s so impressive).

One brewery, Allegory, has some very cool plans for experimental and aged beers. The other, Evasion, is cranking out some fascinating gluten-free beers that they think of as gluten-free beers for anybody.

The OBG is available online and in print, here’s where to get it:
