Another entry for my beer travelogue…
MT. HOOD, Oregon, August 2015 — With the weather turning colder, I’m reminiscing about my late summer trip to Oregon. My trip took me from the mountains to the sea, and to a couple of brewpubs in-between.
The highlight of my meeting on Mt. Hood…
…was dinner at Mt. Hood Brewing Company.
- Ice Axe India Pale Ale, this British-style IPA is Mt. Hood’s flagship beer (5.7%)
- Cascadian Pale Ale, a crisp, unfiltered Pale Ale dry-hopped with Cascadian hops (5.4%)
- Highland Meadow Blonde Ale, Mt. Hood’s lightest beer surprised with lots of flavor (3.7%)
- Cloud Cap Amber Ale, a well-balanced Northwest-style Amber (5.0%)
- Multorporter Smoked Porter, an easy-drinking Porter (4.8%)
- Hogsback Oatmeal Stout, a rich Stout with coffee and chocolate notes (4.7%)
- Belgian Pale Ale, the seasonal brew on tap
I was most impressed with: The line-up of beers was solid, but I really enjoyed the food. The appetizer menu included Pub Fry Poutine, and anytime I can get Poutine in the States, I am one happy customer.
And oh by the way: Mt. Hood Brewing Company offers a dog menu on their patio with six menu items, including Peanut Butter Bacon Biscuits and Frozen Yogurt Peanut Butter Balls. How cool is that!Follow @boabeerblog
