Non-McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 28 of 73: After enjoying an award-winning, refreshing Hopworks Urban Brewery Organic Lager Northwest Pilsner with a goat-cheese lamb burger at Portland’s The Observatory restaurant, I was delighted to find out I could enjoy the beer at home as well. It is not sold where I live in Albany, so once in a while when I am in Portland I stop by a Fred Meyer to pick up a four-pack of 16 oz. cans. According to the brewer:
“Our Northwest-style pilsner is all malt all the time. Spicy and herbal notes from organic Perle hops balance the delicate honey flavor from organic two-row malt and light caramel malt. This golden lager is dry and refreshing with surprising depth of character. All malt American craft lager • delicate honey malt body • classic herbal hop notes • clean, dry finish.” Measurements: 5.1% ABV • 32 IBUObviously I really like this beer, or I wouldn’t keep buying it!
