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.

New Inventory Arriving Each Week

This week we just received a new shipment of new products. We have some nice new pint glasses, featuring some of Oregon's favorite brews: Rogue's Dead Guy, Bridgeport's Blue Heron, and Portland Brewing's MacTarnahans.

From Wyeast we've added the Cider and Sweet Mead yeasts, as well as Northwest Ale yeast. We've added a bunch of other little items as well, such as the wine thief, which makes taking samples of wine or beer out of your carboy very easy.
