Hop Rhizomes Available for Pre-Order

We are about to order a bunch of hop rhizomes (root cuttings). Hops are a very nice climbing perennial that grow great here. Even if you don't brew beer, they are a great landscaping vine.

We plan on ordering Cascade, Centennial, Willamette, Mt. Hood, Sterling, and Nugget. We will have limited availability, so we recommend pre-paying by the end of the week (by Friday, February 26 at noon), for the discounted price of $4 each. You can call our store or send your contact info and request via our contact page.

Portland Cheers to Belgian Beers includes Homebrew Competition

The Portland Cheers to Belgian Beers (PCTBB) will have it's fourth annual festival on May 1, 2010 at Hopworks Urban Brewery. The festival consists of local breweries brewing Belgian-style beers, all using the same strain of yeast. This year they are adding a homebrew competition. Start brewing soon, especially if you want to enter a stronger brew that needs aging.

The yeast this year is a limited edition Wyeast 3726 Farmhouse Ale. Our store is one of the few carrying this yeast. It is a limited run so when we run out--we run out. More information past the cut...

Rogue Pacman Yeast (Wyeast 1764-PC)

A new shipment of Wyeast just arrived. Available here is the Pacman yeast, from Rogue breweries. A fairly neutral strain with a dry mild fruit finish. Pacman's flavor profile and performance make it a great choice for so many different kinds of beers. A few that are suggested: American Pale Ale, American Amber Ale, American Brown Ale, Brown Porter, Cream Ale, American IPA, Imperial IPA, the list goes on.

Alcohol Tolerance: 12% ABV
Flocculation: med-high
Attenuation: 72-78%
Temp Range: 60-72F (15-22C)

Try this yeast in your next batch of homebrew.
