When I first moved to Oregon 14 years ago, one of the first regional craft beers that really tickled my fancy was Golden Valley Brewing‘s Tannenbomb Ale. A big chewy, rich English Strong Ale built exquisitely for cold and rainy Pacific Northwest winters. Boasting more than 110 pounds blended Pale, Carastan, and Crystal malts per barrel, this is, as the commercial description accurately assesses “a beer of true character and distinction.” With all these big mealy malts in the mix, Tannenbomb is perfectly seasoned with a generous hopping schedule of Chinook, Liberty, and Fuggles, before being dry-hopped with Willamette Kent Goldings for a mouthwatering aromatic beckoning.

Join both Golden Valley at their McMinnville brewpub or their new Beaverton establishment on Thursday October 4, 2012 for the release of their massive winter warmer, the almighty Tannenbomb!
