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.
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

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

and aroma of the Simcoe Hops.

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
