About Bigfoot Mojo

Blugrass duo

Upright bassist Belinda Underwood and national mandolin champion Josiah Payne met on the bluegrass scene in Portland, Oregon, as hired hands in other award-winning bands. Musicians in multiple genres since childhood, they both grew up in family bands before moving to Oregon, and were feeling orphaned without their families until they found each other in 2012. After playing together for 3 years as "Josiah and Belinda", they adoped the mascot of the Northwest when they became Bigfoot Mojo.

Songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, they have many creative offerings, including this new incarnation. Josiah and Belinda continue to mesmerize audiences with groove-based melodies and impeccable vocal harmonies (the kind that sound genetically-blended), setting a new standard for original music which defies genre boundaries.

Bigfoot Mojo plays with other amazing guest musicians to create a trio, quartet or bigger. Lately they have been featuring world-traveling guitarist Pete Kartsounes, when he is home from tour! Also featured is the young national twin fiddle champion Wilhelmina.

Josiah and Belinda also play together in the high-energy bluegrass band The Wild Wood and in their Middle Eastern funk band, Al Farasha.

About Silver Lake 66

Modern Americana

Maria Francis and Jeff Overbo define modern Americana with a winning amalgamation of classic country, folk and blues. Their songs have been hailed by numerous publications and radio stations for their knack of authentic, heartstring-tugging songwriting, impeccable harmonies and ardent guitar-playing. For nearly a decade through the 1990s, Francis and Overbo called Los Angeles home when they fronted a band called The Ruby Trees. The couple performed in a slew of local LA clubs, which includes appearances at Ronnie Mack’s Barn Dance at The World-Famous Palomino Club. Following a move to Portland, Francis and Overbo dealt with illness-related adversity that sidelined them from performance. But rising healthy and happy,  they found themselves adopted by a likeminded tribe of Portland musicians who helped them get back into the art of music-making. It was then that Silver Lake 66 was born. In August of 2016, the duo released a new LP, Let Go Or Be Dragged, featuring a collection of songs drawn from personal experiences of travel, love, loss and adversity. A group of local veteran musicians from the Portland Americana community round out the vocally driven, warm, tremolo-laden sound. The album has been a resounding success with Americana radio, receiving airplay from over 55 stations throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe. The album hit #19 on the Roots Music Report’s album chart, and the song “San Francisco Angel” reached #18 on its singles chart. 

The Huffington Post’s Randy Radic describes Silver Lake 66’s music as “elegant simplicity” and “the real McCoy.” For Folk’s Sake’s Jonathan Frahm calls the duo “the real deal” and highlights their “sweet harmonies that mesh the entirety of their sound together.” 

About The Hillwilliams

Bluegrass

The Hillwilliams are a group of Portland, OR musicians who have come together to celebrate the high lonesome sound and hot picking of traditional Bluegrass.

Brought together initially by admiration for bluegrass masters like Bill Monroe and The Stanley Brothers as well as 1970s bluegrass supergroup Old and in the Way, The Hillwilliams blend three strong vocalists, smoking fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo and doghouse bass, into a fun high energy mix, that harkens back to classic bluegrass, while exploring an exciting sound of their own. Whether they are playing the best of the traditional bluegrass repertoire, or playing their own original bluegrass songs, their shows are fun, high energy events that leave audiences asking for more.

The Hillwilliams' first album of original material, "Hill Yeah!", was released in February of 2015.

Meltdown: Salt & Straw Meets Little Beast Brewing at Little Beast Brewing

Image sourced from Little Beast Brewing Beer Garden

Image sourced from Little Beast Brewing Beer Garden

Approaching the first anniversary of their patio-enabled location, at 3412 SE Division Street, Little Beast Brewing Company invites you along with Salt & Straw in celebrating this achievement.

On June 14th, from 12 pm to 8 pm, the brewery will be joined by Salt & Straw's R&D (Research & Development) team coinciding with the three unique beer and ice cream pairings.

Roasted Strawberry Coconut Vegan Ice Cream paired with Dream State (Foeder Aged Ale with Strawberries)

More on Strawberry Coconut Vegan Ice Cream from Salt & Straw

Roasting strawberries does something truly magical. While our favorite Hood strawberries are already amazing in their natural state, roasting them caramelizes their sugars and makes them irresistible. We simply blend the roasted berries with coconut cream and churn in our ice cream makers. Yum!

More on Dream State from Little Beast Brewing

Aged for over 6 months in our Cabernet Sauvignon foeder and with 7 distinct microflora, Dream State contains 100 pounds of fresh whole Oregon strawberries per barrel. Full of lush fruit flavor, soft acidity and a complex depth of character.

7% ABV / 13 IBU / 375 mL

Sea Salt w/ Caramel Ribbons Ice Cream paired with Golden Stone (Oak Aged Ale with Peaches, Nectarines, and Apricots)

More about Sea Salt w/ Caramel Ribbons Ice Cream from Salt & Straw

We created this ice cream with Mark Bitterman, the owner and “selmelier” at The Meadow, the internationally renowned Portland salt shop. He actually wrote the book on salt, Salted, a James Beard Award winning cookbook.

We use their Fleur de Sel, which is made in Guatemala from salt pans that are famed for supplying the Mayan Empire at the height of its power. We’ve topped it off by ribboning in hand-burned caramel that we make in house!

More on Golden Stone from Little Beast Brewing

A blend of peaches, nectarines and apricots gives a luscious elegance to this farmhouse ale. Prevailing notes of vanilla, toasted French oak & juicy stone fruit.

8.1% ABV / 12 IBU / 375 ML

Double Fold Vanilla Ice Cream paired with Black Cap (Foeder Aged Ale with Black Cap Raspberries)

More on Double Fold Vanilla Ice Cream from Salt & Straw

This ice cream is called ‘double fold’ because our friends at Singing Dog Vanilla in Eugene, Oregon use twice as many vanilla beans when making it! They also work with growers in Papua New Guinea and Indonesia to find the very best organic vanilla, pay the farmers a fair price, and share a percentage of profits when the final products sell. They call it Fair Trade Plus+ and it’s tasty enough to cause the Wall Street Journal to name it ‘the new standard to beat’!

More on Black Cap from Little Beast Brewing

Seven distinct microflora and an abundant amount of whole Oregon blackcap raspberries combine to create a jammy, medium-bodied earthy ale with bright acidity.

8.4% ABV / 12 IBU / 375 ML

About Salt & Straw

Our story is part luck, part strategy and part love (for ice cream, family, local foods, and other stuff we can’t mention here). I (Kim) have been wanting to open an ice cream scoop shop since 1996. I thought it would be nice to have a local spot where you could run into your neighbors, celebrate with your family, reward yourself…whatever! And I love exploring fun, interesting new flavors. After toiling away in safe mode working for several amazing Fortune 500 businesses, I moved back to Portland for love and found the window of opportunity and support that I’d been lacking to jump start my idea.

...

3-Way IPA Release at The Beer Junction

3-Way IPA Release at The Beer Junction

Press Release

[Astoria, Oregon] The concept is rock solid. Each year Fort George travels the Pacific Northwest, tastes a lot of great beer, and looks for two breweries making innovative and exciting IPAs. After the invitations are extended in late summer, the collaborators come to Astoria to hang out, share more beer, and most importantly work together on a concept for the next 3-Way IPA.

SUMMER 2019 LINEUP

For 2019, Cloudburst Brewing joined the party. This award winning Seattle brewery brings with them a ton of experience, lead by Steve Luke, the former head of experimental brewing at Elysian and creator of the Space Dust IPA recipe, among others. And they also brought the Corporate yeast strain for this year’s beer. Where did they get it? We weren’t asking any questions.

Although Ruse Brewing in Portland is only two-years-old, these folks are definitely not unknown in the brewing world. Co-Founders Devin Beware and Shaun Kalis came from Culmination Brewing before branching out on their own. And already Ruse has been voted by the Willamette Week Oregon Beer Awards as both best new brewery and best small brewery in Oregon.

BETA IPA TESTING

After three days of getting to know each other in Astoria, they began the Beta IPA process with the first small batches starting in November of last year. The initial idea was to brew something in between a New England style hazy and a West Coast IPA - unfiltered with pilsner malt, red wheat, golden promise, plus ample discussions about pH levels in the whirlpool and the amounts of each hop addition.

Hops are the final and perhaps most important component to the 3-Way IPA collaboration. Sourcing the thousands of pounds needed to brew this beer can be tricky. Three hops were initially chosen - Cashmere, Idaho 7, and Citra. However, they also hatched a plan to try out different dominant dry hops in each batch, while also making minor adjustments to the rest of the recipe.

THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR

3-Way IPA combines all of the fruit-forwardness of a hazy, but with that classic touch of bitterness from a West Coast IPA. Many Beta IPA test batches were brewed (and enjoyed) to achieve that balance. The result is a bright, citrus fruit bomb that doesn’t finish too heavy or sweet. And it also doesn’t hold back on the hops.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. As an added wrinkle to this year’s collaboration, that dry hop will also rotate throughout 3-Way IPA season. The first batches are heavily dry hopped with Citra (notes of orange juice, grapefruit zest, and bitter lemon peel). As the weeks go by, supporting hops will take a starring role. And you’ll be able to see which hop is dominant by checking the bottom of your can.

For those of you with tickets to Lupulin Ecstasy, taste the new 3-Way IPA on Saturday, May 25th at the historic Flavel Mansion & Grounds, surrounded by lupulin delights from every 3-Way IPA collaborator throughout the years. If you don’t have a ticket, unfortunately it is sold out. But 3-Way IPA will be on sale at Fort George starting Sunday, May 26th. And at the brewery, there are no limits on can sales.

Join all three collaborators for the first release parties in Seattle on Friday, May 31st at Chuck’s Hop Shop Central District, and in Portland at Ruse Brewing on Saturday, June 1st. Then look for 3-Way IPA cans & draft releasing at pubs & bottleshops near you, starting June 3rd. Fort George is distributed only in the Pacific Northwest.

3-WAY IPA CELEBRATIONS

Come hang out and enjoy a pint of 3-Way IPA with us. You’re guaranteed to find it on tap at these locations, on these days. Or, you can always search for Fort George beer at fortgeorgebrewery.com/beerfinder.

"Beer Quest 5k Fun Run and Brewfest" at Stormbreaker Brewing Company

image sourced from Stormbreaker Brewing Company

As part of this year's PDX Beer Week festivities, we are working with StormBreaker Brewing to host the third annual Beer Quest and Mini Beer Fest! This will be a casual but competitive beer "quest" involving many of the North Portland area breweries.

Participating breweries coming soon!

Starting at 10:00 am, you will make your way to each of the participating breweries to get a hole punch in your beer quest card. There is no set route, so how you get there is up to you! Run/bike/walk/unicycle/pogo stick, doesn't matter. (Just make sure you get your cards punched by 11:15.)

Miles covered will be roughly a 5K. Once you get your card filled out, head back to StormBreaker and redeem your beer quest card to get tasters for the beer fest. Each hole punch is redeemable for one 4 oz pour of that brewery's beer. Gain points along the way to become the Beer Quest Champ!

Ticket includes entry, event taster glass, 8 taster tix, event T-shirt, live music and tons of fun!

10% of our proceeds help support our nonprofit partners, the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, Dollar For Portland, and Life Vest Inside.

Registration is limited, so sign up today!

About the Run
We like to keep things relaxed so this may be different than other “races” you’ve done. We don't keep track of your finish time, and you won’t get a medal when you finish. Instead of closing down the streets, we ensure a safe and fun running route on sidewalks, through parks, and along trails!

Course details are coming soon!

3-Way IPA Release at Elizabeth Station

3-Way IPA Release at Elizabeth Station

Press Release

[Astoria, Oregon] The concept is rock solid. Each year Fort George travels the Pacific Northwest, tastes a lot of great beer, and looks for two breweries making innovative and exciting IPAs. After the invitations are extended in late summer, the collaborators come to Astoria to hang out, share more beer, and most importantly work together on a concept for the next 3-Way IPA.

SUMMER 2019 LINEUP

For 2019, Cloudburst Brewing joined the party. This award winning Seattle brewery brings with them a ton of experience, lead by Steve Luke, the former head of experimental brewing at Elysian and creator of the Space Dust IPA recipe, among others. And they also brought the Corporate yeast strain for this year’s beer. Where did they get it? We weren’t asking any questions.

Although Ruse Brewing in Portland is only two-years-old, these folks are definitely not unknown in the brewing world. Co-Founders Devin Beware and Shaun Kalis came from Culmination Brewing before branching out on their own. And already Ruse has been voted by the Willamette Week Oregon Beer Awards as both best new brewery and best small brewery in Oregon.

BETA IPA TESTING

After three days of getting to know each other in Astoria, they began the Beta IPA process with the first small batches starting in November of last year. The initial idea was to brew something in between a New England style hazy and a West Coast IPA - unfiltered with pilsner malt, red wheat, golden promise, plus ample discussions about pH levels in the whirlpool and the amounts of each hop addition.

Hops are the final and perhaps most important component to the 3-Way IPA collaboration. Sourcing the thousands of pounds needed to brew this beer can be tricky. Three hops were initially chosen - Cashmere, Idaho 7, and Citra. However, they also hatched a plan to try out different dominant dry hops in each batch, while also making minor adjustments to the rest of the recipe.

THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR

3-Way IPA combines all of the fruit-forwardness of a hazy, but with that classic touch of bitterness from a West Coast IPA. Many Beta IPA test batches were brewed (and enjoyed) to achieve that balance. The result is a bright, citrus fruit bomb that doesn’t finish too heavy or sweet. And it also doesn’t hold back on the hops.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. As an added wrinkle to this year’s collaboration, that dry hop will also rotate throughout 3-Way IPA season. The first batches are heavily dry hopped with Citra (notes of orange juice, grapefruit zest, and bitter lemon peel). As the weeks go by, supporting hops will take a starring role. And you’ll be able to see which hop is dominant by checking the bottom of your can.

For those of you with tickets to Lupulin Ecstasy, taste the new 3-Way IPA on Saturday, May 25th at the historic Flavel Mansion & Grounds, surrounded by lupulin delights from every 3-Way IPA collaborator throughout the years. If you don’t have a ticket, unfortunately it is sold out. But 3-Way IPA will be on sale at Fort George starting Sunday, May 26th. And at the brewery, there are no limits on can sales.

Join all three collaborators for the first release parties in Seattle on Friday, May 31st at Chuck’s Hop Shop Central District, and in Portland at Ruse Brewing on Saturday, June 1st. Then look for 3-Way IPA cans & draft releasing at pubs & bottleshops near you, starting June 3rd. Fort George is distributed only in the Pacific Northwest.

Boxers & Brews is an annual fundraising event benefitting MustLuvBoxers Rescue held in the Cairn taproom. The event features custom tee shirts, raffles, face painting, emcee services by Heather from WARM 106.9 and a donation from Cairn of $1 per pint sold during the event. All proceeds go directly to this all-volunteer rescue. The event will also host two food trucks for the humans and the Seattle Barkery for the pups. There will be lots of boxers in attendance and all breeds are welcome.  If guests bring a donation of dog food, MustLuvBoxers will offer 2 free raffle tickets for the numerous raffle drawings through the afternoon event.

The team at Cairn truly cares about animal welfare. You can feel it in their taproom and from their support of our annual fundraiser Boxers And Brews. It’s a super fun day celebrating dogs and beer!”

Jen Boyd, Cairn co-owner, said “Being part of the community is so important to the Cairn team. Support for local animal rescue efforts holds a special place in our hearts at Cairn. We adopted our own dog, Rosie, as a rescue from Homeward Pet Adoption Center in 2017. She’s a daily reminder of how important it is for every dog to have a home full of love and laughter. We’re delighted to partner with MustLuvBoxers again for a day of dog fun, fundraising, and beer! A taproom full of pups is the absolute best afternoon. ”

MustLuvBoxers Rescue strives to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome unwanted and abandoned Boxers in Washington State, including Seattle, WA and surrounding areas throughout Western Washington.

This brewfest began 22 years ago when brewer Chris Oslin formulated the idea based on his love of hockey. This event would turn into the Stanley Cup of brewfests! The winner only holds the growing trophy temporarily before it's returned to its home at the Thompson, just like the Stanley Cup. This event turned into quite the community affair, as a local Salem Brew Club would do the judging. We think it's still a matter of public interest as the voting is now done by you! Join us and try 22 total brewfest offerings. There will be 6 ciders and 16 Ales along with a discovery hunt. Also, don't forget to drop your ballot.

The first batches are heavily dry hopped with Citra (notes of orange juice, grapefruit zest, and bitter lemon peel). As the weeks go by, supporting hops will take a starring role. And you’ll be able to see which hop is dominant by checking the bottom of your can.

For those of you with tickets to Lupulin Ecstasy, taste the new 3-Way IPA on Saturday, May 25th at the historic Flavel Mansion & Grounds, surrounded by lupulin delights from every 3-Way IPA collaborator throughout the years. If you don’t have a ticket, unfortunately it is sold out. But 3-Way IPA will be on sale at Fort George starting Sunday, May 26th. And at the brewery, there are no limits on can sales.

Join all three collaborators for the first release parties in Seattle on Friday, May 31st at Chuck’s Hop Shop Central District, and in Portland at Ruse Brewing on Saturday, June 1st. Then look for 3-Way IPA cans & draft releasing at pubs & bottleshops near you, starting June 3rd. Fort George is distributed only in the Pacific Northwest.

3-WAY IPA CELEBRATIONS

Come hang out and enjoy a pint of 3-Way IPA with us. You’re guaranteed to find it on tap at these locations, on these days. Or, you can always search for Fort George beer at fortgeorgebrewery.com/beerfinder.

3-Way IPA *can release at Ruse Brewing

3-Way IPA *can release at Ruse Brewing

Press Release

[Astoria, Oregon] The concept is rock solid. Each year Fort George travels the Pacific Northwest, tastes a lot of great beer, and looks for two breweries making innovative and exciting IPAs. After the invitations are extended in late summer, the collaborators come to Astoria to hang out, share more beer, and most importantly work together on a concept for the next 3-Way IPA.

SUMMER 2019 LINEUP

For 2019, Cloudburst Brewing joined the party. This award winning Seattle brewery brings with them a ton of experience, lead by Steve Luke, the former head of experimental brewing at Elysian and creator of the Space Dust IPA recipe, among others. And they also brought the Corporate yeast strain for this year’s beer. Where did they get it? We weren’t asking any questions.

Although Ruse Brewing in Portland is only two-years-old, these folks are definitely not unknown in the brewing world. Co-Founders Devin Beware and Shaun Kalis came from Culmination Brewing before branching out on their own. And already Ruse has been voted by the Willamette Week Oregon Beer Awards as both best new brewery and best small brewery in Oregon.

BETA IPA TESTING

After three days of getting to know each other in Astoria, they began the Beta IPA process with the first small batches starting in November of last year. The initial idea was to brew something in between a New England style hazy and a West Coast IPA - unfiltered with pilsner malt, red wheat, golden promise, plus ample discussions about pH levels in the whirlpool and the amounts of each hop addition.

Hops are the final and perhaps most important component to the 3-Way IPA collaboration. Sourcing the thousands of pounds needed to brew this beer can be tricky. Three hops were initially chosen - Cashmere, Idaho 7, and Citra. However, they also hatched a plan to try out different dominant dry hops in each batch, while also making minor adjustments to the rest of the recipe.

THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR

3-Way IPA combines all of the fruit-forwardness of a hazy, but with that classic touch of bitterness from a West Coast IPA. Many Beta IPA test batches were brewed (and enjoyed) to achieve that balance. The result is a bright, citrus fruit bomb that doesn’t finish too heavy or sweet. And it also doesn’t hold back on the hops.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. As an added wrinkle to this year’s collaboration, that dry hop will also rotate throughout 3-Way IPA season. The first batches are heavily dry hopped with Citra (notes of orange juice, grapefruit zest, and bitter lemon peel). As the weeks go by, supporting hops will take a starring role.

GateCity IPA for North Helpline at Watershed Pub & Kitchen

This is the second time we’ve made this beer to raise money for the charity North Helpline, a poverty assistance and food bank service right across the street from our brewery. Their essential work is summed up by their motto:

“We believe that all deserve adequate food, housing, and respect. We assist our neighbors in obtaining basic needs that affirm their human dignity and worth.”

Watershed Pub & Kitchen, North Helpline, and Hellbent Brewing all came together again to create a beer and an event that support our neighborhood--the Northgate and Lake City communities (hence “GateCity IPA”). A host of local bars and restaurants are participating to make the GateCity IPA project come to life. At every location during Seattle Beer Week (May 10th-May 19th), $1 per pint of GateCity IPA will be donated to North Helpline.

Pub Crawl Information

Another reason to check out this beer is that last year, at the Washington Beer Awards, GateCity IPA won the gold medal in the American Style IPA category!! It’s brewed with all Washington ingredients, including malt from Skagit Valley Malting and aggressive amounts of Citra, Simcoe, and Mosaic hops from the Yakima Valley. This beer is a pale IPA with gentle bready overtones from the malt and vibrant mango, papaya, citrus and pine aromas from the hops.

ABV 7.3% 62 IBU
