Oakshire Brewing Company, Eugene Oregon. This is the new tasting room that is just down the street from the Hop Valley Brewery so I visited them both.

This brewery has a large tasting room with roll up open bay doors. They sell about 5 different types of glassware including the "can" type made of glass and the elusive imperial pint glasses. The first beer I had was the Reclamation Czech pilsner, this beer has a malt aroma of a classic Czech pilsner with a crisp and clean flavor, a good balance between the malt and hops a very nice beer, worth the stop on its own. The next beer was the Watershed IPA, this beer has a good hop aroma from Simcoe and Amarillo plus other hops. The hop flavor has a deep profile and plenty of Rahr 2 row plus some Munich malt. This beer has about the best aroma in an IPA I have had this trip. I'm gonna get a six pack of this to go as it come in the can (now that I'm home entering this review and have had time to drink a few more I really like this beer and will be going back for more)...the next beer was the Ride your Bike Double Red Ale. This beer was cask conditioned and has a moderate hop flavor and a good maltiness to balance, not the best Red ale I've had on this trip but still a good beer. The last beer was the Overcast Expresso Oatmeal Stout....on Nitro....this beer has a lite mouthfeel per style....and a good creaminess from the oatmeal and Nitro....it has a tan head that persists and a slight astringency ok per style....another good beer. This is a cool brewery and worth the stop if you are in the area. I would suggest grabbing some Watershed IPA in cans for your next hike! Visited July 20, 2014

Oakshire is way on the outskirts of Eugene, so you reallly need to have a car to visit, and they are normally only open Saturday afternoons, but it's well worth the journey, especially since their beer is so good and is currently only available in Oregon.

The building is a warehouse with a garage door opening in the front that leads into the first of two rooms. The outer room serves as the tasting room and has the brew kettle and mash tun. On the left is the tasting room bar with beer on tap as well as 22 oz. bottles (3 of their beers are bottled right now), t-shirts, and hoodies for sale, right next to the grain mill and stored grain. In the middle are picnic tables and a home-brew set-up (eventually they plan to offer homebrewing classes). On the right are the brew kettle and mash tun. The lighting is industrial, as befits a working brewery. You really are right in the middle of the brewery when you visit.

The back room has the fermenters and the brite tanks, as well as a refrigerated area.

We tasted the Amber, the Watershed IPA, another seasonal IPA, the Overcast Espresso Stout, the Cornucopia Frog's Wort Pale Ale (right from the brite tank!), and a Rye Cascadian Dark Ale made for the local KLCC Microbrew Festival. All were good.

They don't serve food but there is regularly a mobile foodcart (Devour) that sets up in the parking lot and serves grilled panini sandwiches and soups (the food looked quite good).

This is Eugene’s other up and coming brewery and they have really made a lot of progress in just a couple years. When I arrived, Jeff and Matt were hard at work (well mostly Matt) brewing for the inaugural fill of the new 80 BBL fermenter. It should take about 30 hours. The brewery square footage was doubled last year so they currently have some maneuvering room plus there is a nook with taps for tastings (and in the not too distance future, pint sales). I got to sample the IPA, Imperial IPA, Amber and Espresso Stout. Both the IPA and the Stout will be available in bottles soon so I should be able to take some home with me on my next trip north. There is a limited amount of parking in the lot. Tasting hours are currently Saturdays 12-4. One added note: we can all look forward to Matt’s contribution to the second Collaborative Evil series at GABF this fall.
