EUGENE, OR: Eugene-based Alesong Brewing and Blending was named Oregon’s “Best New Brewer” and the #6 “Best New Brewer” worldwide for 2017 in RateBeer.com’s annual RateBeer Best awards. The RateBeer Best Awards reflect the results of millions of user generated beer ratings on one of the world’s largest beer rating sites, ratebeer.com. The “Best New Brewer” awards represent the top ranked breweries that started collecting ratings on or after June 1, 2016. That group totals over 6,400 new breweries, of which Alesong ranked #6 worldwide and #1 in the state of Oregon.
“We’re thrilled to be named as one of the world’s best new breweries! We have always watched who wins these awards to see which new breweries we should be following that maybe we haven’t seen in our local area yet” says Brian Coombs, one of Alesong’s three founding partners. “To see our name on that list is an incredible honor!”
Alesong’s brewery and tasting room is located 20 minutes southwest of Eugene at 80848 Territorial Highway and is open to the public Friday-Sunday throughout the winter months. Their beer is available at better bottle shops throughout Oregon, Washington, Colorado and California. For more information, please refer to their website: https://www.alesongbrewing.com.

ABOUT ALESONG BREWING AND BLENDING: Alesong Brewing and Blending is a small artisan brewery based in the heart of Southern Willamette Valley wine country that crafts unique and small-batch beers with a focus on oak aging and Belgian-inspired techniques, brewing both wild and non-wild beers, using locally grown fruits, herbs and a host of special yeasts and other microbes. Once the beer in the barrels has matured, the team samples and selects each barrel individually to blend. Paying homage to old-world Lambic blenders and artisan winemakers, Alesong believes that the final, balanced blend of a barrel-aged beer is much more satisfying than the sum of its parts or each individual barrel by itself.
