  • Bend Brewing Co is now pouring Eclipse Black IPA, Scarlet Imperial Red, Axe Head Red, Sexi-Mexi and Ching Ching.  Great line up!!!  And while we’re on the subject of BBC, The New School did a great brewer profile piece on Tonya and Ian at BBC.
  • And the Tonya Cornett popularity train keeps rolling … she and Curt Plants of GoodLife collaborated around the new Scotch Ale offering from GoodLife: Scottish Heart, and it was released last Wednesday.  I have yet to try it, but here is the published information from them:  “This caramelized, malt forward Scotch Ale is brewed in honor of St. Andrew and is a brave, collaborative effort of two brewers, Tonya Cornett of Bend Brewing Company & Curt Plants of GoodLife Brewing Company.”
  • Finally, let’s not forget that 10 Barrel’s new brewery construction is still ongoing. Check out their Facebook pics for a couple of new updates and a grainy video of the epic Pray for Snow party.
Cheers!
