What's a SMaSH?

SMaSH is an acronym for "Single Malt and Single Hop". Why SMaSH? The idea is to break brewing down to its basic elements and emphasize the flavor of a single malt and single hop variety. SMaSH emphasizes the flavor of a single malt and a single hop, letting both the brewer and you understand what each bring to the beer.

Some styles like Pilsners, Lagers, and IPAs work better as SMaSH beers than others do, but the style chosen by our participating Oregon brewers is entirely up to them, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Stop by our SMaSH Fest for a chance to taste every one of these beers:

10 Barrel Brewing Co.
In Bloom             
Spring is here again, and the Saison is in bloom. Full Pint Pilsner Malt from Mainstem Malt provides a soft sweetness to a light and crisp malt body. Loral Hops in the whirlpool and dry-hop awaken this beer with fragrant hints of rose petals and lemon tree blossoms. Fermentation characteristics from the Farmhouse yeast burst to life with white pepper and hints of licorice. Find a spot in the shade of a tree and take some time to experience this lush and lively Saison.

Smokey the Beer             
We brewed Smokey the Beer just for SMaSH Fest. This smoky, malty American Session Ale is a Single Malt and Single Hop beer featuring Liberty Hops and Vienna Malts. We smoked a portion of the Vienna Malt using pecan and apple wood chips, creating a subtle, tasty, smoky flavor. Cheers to SMaSH beers!

Fremont Brewing
Summer Ale tastes like tangerine flowers in a glass, endless days brewed into a nectar of barley and hops. Four hundred twenty reasons to enjoy this beer. Our answer to bigger is better, Summer Ale is as simple as craft beer gets. One grain, one hop. Simplicity...yet, so much more.
Malts: 2-Row
Hops: Amarillo
ABV: 5.20%   IBU: 45

Hops: Centennial, Cascade, Citra              
ABV: 4.70%   IBU: 45

Old St. Francis School Brewery  
Smash It Up       
This Pale Ale was brewed exclusively with Pale Ale Malt and Simcoe Hops. This SMaSH beer keeps things simple in the ingredients department but boasts some delicious thirst-quenching flavor. The Pale Malt provides a much fuller malty taste than your typical 2-Row and is complemented by the citrus flavor and aroma of the Simcoe Hops.          
Malts: Pale Ale
Hops: Simcoe    
ABV: 5.16%   IBU: 21

Portland Brewing           
Red X SMASH     
Red X SMASH is a single malt, single hop beer. Using Red X Malt from Best Malt in Germany, the base beer is a red malty ale, hopped and dry-hopped with fruity Amarillo Hops. The malty sweetness and hoppy brightness bring to mind citrus and tropical fruits.

Hops: Amarillo
ABV: 6.60%   IBU: 80                                                                  

RiverBend Brewing
Passion Of The Hop
Pilsner Malt and Mosaic Hops. Which translates to a light-bodied IPA bursting with tropical flavors of guava, melon and grapefruit -- then finished off with passionfruit puree for that extra bit of fruity deliciousness.            
Malts: Pilsner    
Hops: Mosaic    
ABV: 6.40%   IBU: 50

Experimental Americanized Belgian Abbaye, mysterious and previously unknown until it hit the earth. Might as well drink up!

Sunriver Brewing Co.    
Flashback IPA    
Our 2018 COBW SMaSH IPA is brewed with 100% Maris Otter Pale Malt and Mosaic Hops. The English-grown malted barley is a blend of Crisp and Simpsons brands, and features a rich, sweet biscuit flavor. Four different forms of Mosaic Hops provide layers of blueberry, papaya and tangerine.  
Malts: Maris Otter          
Hops: Mosaic    
ABV: 7.20%        

Wild Ride Brewing         
More is Les SMaSh IPA  
Sometimes the best things in life come from keeping it simple. This IPA uses only one type of malted barley and one variety of hop, creating a SMaSH beer. Northwest Premium 2-Row lays the foundation of this beer by creating a simple, sweet flavor, before layers of Equinox Hops are added throughout the brew. These hops offer a floral aroma, a pleasant citrus and tropical fruit flavor, and contribute a rounded bitterness to the beer. The end result is more deliciousness with less ingredients in this hop-forward IPA.          
Malts: Northwest Premium 2-Row          
Hops: Equinox
ABV: 7.50%   IBU: 90

Worthy Brewing
Single in Bend   
Single in Bend was brewed with German Pilsner Malt and Calypso Hops. It has a crisp, clean and light-bodied malt profile with a sweet, tropical flavor and aroma.
