Tuesday August 24, 2010 marks the 14th anniversary of Alameda Brewhouse. The Beaumont Neighborhood brewpub has been a staple for craft beer zealots since its inception in 1996. Located on Southeast Fremont Street at 47th Avenue, the pub has championed great beers like the award winning Black Bear XX Foreign-style Stout and recently the El Torrero IPA and the Yellow Wolf Imperial IPA, a both true West Coast renditions of the style formulated by current lead brewer Carston Haney who has been in charge of brewing at Alameda since 2008. Other imaginative beer styles that Haney has executed well include a unique Cascadian Farmhouse Ale, a peppery and effervescent beer brewed with Upright Brewing’s French Saison yeast and dry-hopped with copious amounts of high alpha American Palisades; and the Irvington Juniper Porter, a chewy brew with lots of chocolate malt and black strap molasses to give it a hearty underbelly. A hint of juniper blends adds to the chocolate to give it new and unique flavor.
For Alameda’s special day, in addition to their stellar line-up of year-round beers, look for the return of the Cascadian Farmhouse as well as a Grizzly Bear Imperial Brown Ale and a brand new Cascadian Dark Ale (Black IPA). All these beer for $1.40 ALL DAY!
Alameda Brewhouse is located at 4765 NE Fremont Street in Portland, Oregon. Look for the giant metal hop out front or call (503) 460-9025 for more information.
