Oregon & Washington – It’s been brought to our attention that come this February a familiar friend will be pouring from a tap or bottle soon.

Started in the heart of Portland, Oregon, Laurelwood Brewing has been making a name for itself with its neighborhood public houses and breweries. Recently they expanded their operations into Battle Ground, Washington, just outside of Portland to better serve eager fans from the Evergreen state. If you have ever set in foot to one of their locations then you know what to expect from this nice and hoppy ale.

If you still need more of a reason you are sadly out of luck because if winning the Great Lakes National IPA Championships, isn’t enough then we can’t help you.

As a special note as well, it’s been told to us that on top of this wonderful beer, you can start looking for Free Range Red and Green Elephant IPA on draft as well. As always check with your local independent grocer, bottleshop or bar. And if you can’t find it on draft or in the bottle ask them to order a case or keg.
