Base Camp Brewing
Base Camp Brewing Grand Opening Friday and Saturday 11am-11pm 930 SE Oak St., Portland, OR 97214

Please help me welcome Base Camp Brewing (Facebook / Twitter) to the Portland beer scene! The official grand opening weekend party/extravaganza starts today at 11:00am.

Last night at a pre-opening gathering, they were pouring five great beers: Paölschienbier, In-Tents India Pale Lager, Out-of-Bounds Brown, S'more Stout (garnished with a marshmallow), and Hoptastic Voyage Fresh Hop IPA. The In-Tents India Pale Lager is their flagship beer, and it was my favorite of the night: medium-bodied, hoppy, nice light tannic oak notes, crisp finish. You can already find this beer in aluminum bottles at your favorite bottleshop.

I'll have more notes and photos of the beer and space later this weekend, but I wanted make sure to get an introductory post up before their grand opening event kicked off today. Congratulations Base Camp!
