About Beer Tasting: New Coolship #1 and more

Beer Tasting: New Coolship #1 and more

Sometimes McMenamins brewers move on to other ventures, but they’re always part of the family. Former Kalama Harbor Lodge brewer Zak started Little Hop Brewing, then joined up with his alma mater for a creative collaboration: Coolship #1. And we’ll be celebrating its release by tasting with the brewers, Zak and John from Kalama Harbor Lodge Brewery.

Come by for a taste or a bottle to go, and while you’re here, grab a sip of Barrel-aged Cookie Patch Batch and Mosaic Deluge IPA.

The beers:

Kalama Harbor Lodge + Little Hop Brewing Collaboration: Coolship #1
This ship sailed in on the cool breeze of collaboration with our friends at Little Hop Brewing. Made with Oregon raspberries, the inaugural beer out of Kalama Harbor Lodge Brewery's Coolship Program was spontaneously fermented in French oak and aged on fruit, emulating a centuries-old method from brewers of Belgian Lambics. After brewing, the beer is cooled in open-air "coolships," allowing contact with native, wild yeast. It is tart, fruity and one of a kind.

Mosaic Deluge
Mosaic Deluge is a Hazy IPA brewed with only Mosaic Hops. It inundates you with big juicy flavors of tropical fruit, citrus and mango.

Barrel-aged Cookie Patch Batch
Made with a ridiculous amount of the brewer’s favorite Girl Scout cookie, Samoas, this beer is dessert in a glass.  Rich caramel and chocolate flavors blend with coconut to make it sweet and decadent, just like the confection sold by your local troop.
