About Winter Warmer Fest II
Winter Warmer Invitational
Come by to try hearty winter beers, including: Crystal Brewery's Wee Heavy Strong Scotch Ale (aged in a Hogshead Whiskey barrel), and Roseburg Station's Black Hole Imperial Porter (aged in Hogshead/American Oak barrel).
Our brewers will be on hand to chat more about their creations. These showcase beers are at happy hour pricing all night.
The Commodore’s Reserve Barleywine
The Commodore has made available, once again,
his private reserve, a rich, full bodied and smooth barleywine. This
precious cargo has notes of dark fruit and the already complex flavor
profile has been complimented with the addition of an oak spiral that
was soaked in our very own Longshot Brandy. At nearly eleven percent
alcohol by volume, this barleywine commands even The Commodore’s respect
and is sure to have you setting sail for new horizons.

The Black Hole Imperial Stout
Deep, dark, thick and rich: beware the Black
Hole. Gravitational forces and a rotating mash paddle work to
concentrate this great mass of beer atoms into a glass of beer so strong
and so dark that not even light can escape. The Black Hole is an
Imperial Stout weighing in at a massive 7.35% alcohol by volume. Dark
matter in the form of Dark Crystal, Brown, Chocolate, Blackprinz,
Roasted Rye malts and Roast Barley, along with 2-Row Pale and NW Pale
Ale malts, combine with the lupulin, alpha acids, beta acids and
essential oils of Nugget and Goldings hops, and whiskey and oak flavors
from over a month of aging on oak marinated with our McMenamins Monkey
Puzzle Whiskey, to warp space and time into a singularity of intense
strength and flavor that will tear your atoms apart from the inside out.

Death Star 15m
Chris Oslin and Brady Romtvedt
Last year’s champion returns.
Now 15 months old, this ale has matured from a ham-fisted, hop-headed
youngster into a brandy-sipping connoisseur of higher pleasures. Savor
the notes of fig and brandied fruit that permeate the rich layers of
this black barley wine. Feel the alcohol slowly warm your body as hop
flowers dance between the vertebrate of the ale’s 1000 pound backbone.
Finally, raise your glass and toast a year’s worth of good memories and
the beneficence of Father Time.

Wee Heavy Strong Scotch Ale
Mark Goodwin and Dan Black
This strong Scotch ale is a malt
lover’s dream. It was made as traditional as possible using all
European base malts and fermented at a cooler temperature. Doing this
discourages the production of unwanted esters while encourages the
sweetness you look for in a strong Scotch ale. Hints of smoked and
peated malt were added to bring out the robust character of this ale.
It is dark burnt orange in color with an off-white lacey head and has a
bready caramel nose with hints of smoke, dark fruit and a chewy
sweetness on the palate.
Malts: Marris Otter, Pale Wheat, Pale Munich, Smoked Malt, Peated Malt, Caramel Munich 60L, Black Malt, Victory Malt
OG: 1.083 TG: 1.024 ABV: 7.6 IBU: 26 SRM: 19
Buzz Words: smoke, sweetness, caramel
