We’ve heard rumblings about a new brewery opening up in HIllsboro, Oregon for some time now. And thanks to our boy DA and his Beer Around Town blog, we’ve discovered some deets. According to the brewery’s website, they are brewing in small one-barrel batches. The production only facility currently has their flagship Friar Mike’s IPA on tap at O’Brien’s Pub in Hillsboro and has beers available via dock sales. O’Briens features karaoke on Saturday nights along with a decent assortment of microbrews on tap. The pub is a beer-only establishment and features a gentlemen by the name of Luke Beerwalker behind the bar.
Here’s some other beers available from Vertigo pulled from their website:
Cream Ale: A light refreshing beer. Crisp with a soft, light malt flavor. A great introductory beer for those new to craft micro brews. IBU’s: 15, SRM: 3.8, ABV: 4.6%
Apricot Cream Ale: Vertigo’s refreshing cream ale with a hint of apricot. A favorite at weddings!
IBU’s: 15, SRM: 3.8, ABV: 4.6%
Schwindel Alt: Award winning Northern German Alt bier recipe. Carefully brewed and lagered at colder
temperatures for a smooth, clean taste. IBU’s: 33, SRM: 13.7, ABV: 5.1%
High Altitude Amber Ale: A well-balanced American Amber brewed with copious amounts of Northwest Cascade hops. IBU’s: 39, SRM: 13.0, ABV: 5.4%

Columbus, Amarillo and Cascade hops. Sure to please hop-heads everywhere. If you see Friar Mike,
be sure to say “Cheers!” IBU’s: 76, SRM: 8.7, ABV: 6.1%
Raspberry Wheat: An incredibly delicious mix of wheat beer and real raspberries. There are nearly 15 lbs of raspberries inevery barrel. Not overly sweet and extremely refreshing. IBU’s: 24, SRM: 5, ABV: 4.8%
