(OR) Get It Now (Again) ... Oakshire Brewing's Ill Tempered Gnome

image Eugene, OR - We don't say this enough, but Oregon really can put on a show of brewery muscle when they want to. We took some time to speak to some of the more oft ignored breweries (Caldera, Hop Valley, Bend, etc.) and find out what they have in store for us this month and even got a preview of what is to come.

Located in Eugene, the boys (and girls) of Oakshire brewing have been slowly making a name for themselves, not just in the heart of Duck country, but also in the Rose City. Of their beers that is most recognized we are sure you would agree on Overcast Espresso Stout. But like all things festive, another beer will make its Seasonal appearance.

Brewery Description

Hoppy, Brown Ale

ABV: 6.8% / IBUs: 65 / OG: 15.5° Plato

Availability: Winter Seasonal Nov 1-March 1
Take a little gnome home this winter!  However, don’t put him in the front yard.  The neighbors might steal him & he’ll definitely lose his cool! He’s a malty, hoppy brown ale of pure winter deliciousness. Enjoy!

Our Thoughts.
You Should Try This. Listed by some as a Winter Warmer and by the brewery as a Hoppy Brown Ale, we cannot argue against either. Look for this beer in your closest IGA (Independent Grocers Association), bottleshop, or pub.

Also this month, be on the lookout for Three Hearted Strong PAle Ale.

In the coming months, look for our notices on Oakshire Marzen, Doppelbock, and the return of the Very Ill Tempered Gnome.
