Cellar Update: Hair of the Dog Matt

October 22nd, 2009 · 3 Comments · Beer Reviews, Oregon Breweries

In the interest of science (ha!), I figure I might as well post some notes on beers I pull out of my “cellar” to sample. Even though some of them (like this one) you’ll have a tough time buying anywhere for any price. You can always try to trade for rare beers on Ratebeer.com or Beeradvocate.com. Hair of […]

July 28th, 2009 · 4 Comments · Oregon Breweries

February 25th, 2009 · 4 Comments · Beer Releases, California Beer, Events, Oregon Breweries, Washington Breweries

As if it won’t be busy enough already at these events, I just wanted to send a reminder about today’s special releases over at Bottleworks. It’s going to be easy to burn through money today, but it’s going to be much more rewarding than investing in the market these days. Wednesday is a big day […]
