Now with its first two beers completed, Coin Toss Brewing Co. will make its official launch in its hometown of Oregon City on May 16th. Though its brewery and taproom are currently being built out, this tapping will take place at the historic Trail’s End Saloon in Oregon City from 5:00 to 9:00pm.
The introduction of Coin Toss Brewing into its local market will feature the release of Black Hohl Cascadian Dark Ale and George’s Honest Ale. We recently sampled both of these beers at this year’s Spring Beer and Wine Festival and were pleased with both offerings that were brewed at Coalition Brewing and PINTS Brewing. This will be an excellent way to let its hometown craft beer fans sample the beers that will soon be brewed near by.
“What better place to debut our history-themed creation product than at the Trail’s End Saloon,” said Coin Toss Brewing Co. founder Tim Hohl. “We love the atmosphere, the friendly people and a growing interest in local craft beer.”
Black Hohl CDA, the brewery’s flagship beer, is dark and hoppy with a malty backbone and a touch of roast. Two-row, Crystal, Victory and Chocolate malts are complemented by Columbus, Chinook, Centennial, Cascade and CTZ hops. It comes in at 6.1 % ABV and 65 IBU.
George’s Honest Ale is the first offering in Coin Toss’ Heritage Series, which showcases beers brewed based on historical recipes. It’s an interpretation of a beer brewed by George Washington at Mount Vernon. Sweet molasses plays an integral role in this beer, as do Cluster hops and six-row pale malt. These ingredients closely resemble those used by our Founding Father in the 1700s. George’s Honest Ale is 6% ABV and 25 IBU.
The release party will feature samples and pints of both beers. Food will be available for purchase, and door prizes will be awarded throughout the evening. Oregon City blues favorite Rae Gordon will perform a special acoustic set. Minors are allowed until 7:00pm.
