Beer List - Beers Made By Walking Eugene



Beers Made By Walking - Eugene
November 5 • 5-8pm
The Bier Stein • 1591 Willamette St, Eugene, OR 97401

Our first-ever Eugene focused beer tapping is coming up on November 5 and we have compiled an extraordinary list of beers/ciders that are inspired by natural areas in the Southern Willamette Valley. The beers come from a collaboration with the McKenzie River Trust after a series of public walks with brewers this summer. See below for details and don't forget to join and share our Facebook event!

The 6 beers, braggot, and cider will be available together only on Nov. 5 at the Bier Stein, beginning at 5pm. Come in any time that night to try them before they disappear. You'll also have the opportunity to meet many of the brewers and the folks from McKenzie River Trust. This event is a fundraiser for the MRT.

The Beer List:

Agrarian Ales - Close to Home
Yarrow centric with several other herbs that call the Willamette River floodplain home. Yarrow in the kettle, in the fermenter to inoculate culture, and in the keg. 8 IBU, 5% ABV

Claim 52 Brewing - Conservation Sour 
Inspired by a walk through the Berggren Watershed Conservation Area. While enamored with all the property had to give we drew particular interest in the fresh scent of lemon balm, the taste and flavor of mustard seed to the natural habits plethora of pollinating plants. Which in the end drew us to concoct Conservation Sour incorporating lemon balm, mustard seed, honey, and hops. 5 IBU, 5.3% ABV
