Facebook Event Page
Beers Made By Walking is a program that invites brewers to make beer inspired by nature hikes and urban walks. Each walk is different, each beer is a portrait of that landscape. This summer we invited five breweries to go on nature walks. A botanist/herbalist on each hike identified edible and medicinal plants along the trail and these plants were then used to create innovative beers. We invited brewers in distinct parts of the state and the participating brewers are Coalition and Upright (Portland), Flat Tail (Corvallis), Standing Stone (Ashland), and Deschutes (Bend). The beers are experimental in nature
On October 20th, join us as we tap these five beers inspired by hiking trails in different parts of Oregon. The beers will be available together for one night only, from 3-8pm. From 3-5pm you will have the chance to meet the brewers from Coalition, Flat Tail, Deschutes, Standing Stone, and Upright. Visitors will pay per beer and 100% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Northwest Trail Alliance.
A description of the beers you try at Beers Made By Walking:
Coalition Brewing – Ale with Stinging Nettles and Salmonberry
Deschutes Brewery – IPA with Juniper and Sage
Flat Tail Brewing – Fresh Hop Cherry Saison with Corvallis Cherries and Yarrow

Steen, a Portland, OR transplant now living, working, and quaffing in Colorado Springs, CO where he curates art, nature, and botanicals, into his latest beer-art series. Beers Made By Walking is “a program that invites brewers to make beer inspired by nature hikes and urban walks. Each walk is different, each beer is a portrait of that landscape. The program happens in multiple cities each year.” This series has become quite a hit for craft beer enthusiasts around the Rocky Mountains and even drummed up national recognition when it was featured in Draft Magazine (read here).
Now, the series makes a stop in Portland at Belmont Station and will showcase some of the Pacific Northwest’s most imaginative and creative breweries showcasing some mouthwateringly unique one-offs. These will include Standing Stone (Ashland, OR), Upright (Portland), Flat Tail (Corvallis, OR), Coalition (Portland), and Deschutes (Bend, OR). No tickets necessary for this event, just pay by the beer. 100% of the proceeds from these beers will benefit Northwest Trail Alliance.

A recent visit to Standing Stone Brewery in Ashland inspired me to finally select a topic for the weekly blog my school, the Bainbridge Graduate Institute (BGI) requires of its students. A small school, based out of Bainbridge Island, BGI aims to create change agents through their MBA in Sustainable Systems program.
Up until this point, we had the liberty of selecting any topic of interest, so long as we discussed sustainability and business. This quarter, we were asked to pick a single topic for the entire quarter. I had no idea what to write about for three whole months.
While enjoying a pint of Standing Stone’s Oatmeal Stout, I marveled at the brewpub’s sustainability initiatives. Shiny bikes stand front and center upon arrival, waiting for the day they can go home with an employee who has put in 1,000 hours and agrees to bike commute at least 45 times within a year of receiving their new ride. Report cards detail the brewery’s use of energy, waste, and water. And, like many Oregon breweries, they support their local community events.
Experiencing Standing Stone’s commitment to people, planet, and profit led me to declare that I would write about sustainability in the brewing industry as my blog topic. I love beer and want to make this world a better place, so I thought, “why not marry the two?” Read More…

When our friends at Oakshire Brewing in Eugene invited us to join them for the this year’s Boonville Beer Fest, we couldn’t help but to say yes. Despite feeling a little beat down by the previous week at Eugene’s inaugural beer week, Boonville’s legendary fest was one we’d been eying for sometime, and since 2011′s marked the 15th annual occurrence of this event, it seemed logical that this would be the year we checked it off our beer bucket list.
Tucked in amidst looming Read More…

Hop vines hit their stride in May, making it the perfect time for the brewing industry and beer enthusiasts to celebrate the time honored beverage. Aptly, The American Homebrewing Association is holding its “Big Brew” on May 7, while American Craft Beer Week, coordinated by the Brewers’ Association, is May 16-22.
Standing Stone Brewing Co. has a full lineup of happenings on tap for American Craft Beer Week (ACBW), as well as a specialty beer. All take place at the brewery at 101 Oak St, Ashland, Ore. “The world of beer is fascinating and diverse,” says co-owner Alex Amarotico. “We’re looking forward to helping the community celebrate and discover all it has to offer.” Activities are posted on Standing Stone’s website event calendar and blog, and include:
Each night, Standing Stone will offer beer and food samples for guests, and will feature special beer and food pairings. The “Declaration of Beer Independence” will also be on display to sign.
