When the sun starts to shine (any day now) there’s nothing better than a great micro-brew. I’m lucky enough to have a beer brewing husband who works for one of the best breweries in the Gorge. Double Mountain Brewery and Taproom is located in downtown Hood River, Oregon and serves up some of the most amazing beer in all of Oregon and Washington. This summer I’m really into these beers…
VAPORIZER // Dry-Hopped Pale Ale
Featuring nothing but Challenger hops from the Yakima Valley and our house Pilsner malt from British Columbia, The Vaporizer is light-colored, alluringly hoppy and supremely tasty.
HOP LAVA // IPA
This big, glowing, powerful IPA is packed with copious amounts of Northwest hops. The considerable hop flavor is balanced with a sturdy backbone of malty goodness.
HONEY BADGER // IPA
Honey Badger don’t care! But you will. Double Mountain brewer Greg Balch designed this beautiful brew, comprised of IRA wort and blackberry honey from Queen Bee Apiaries. Fermented with a French wine yeast from Burgundy, which lends its own unique flavors. It’s a rich and luxurious beverage.
