Short story for Corvallis, OR

Four breweries downtown. All excellent.

Flat Tail

Block 15

Sky High

Oregon Trail

 

Probably leaning Block 15 as the fave for beer, but the rooftop patio at Sky High kills. attachicon.gifIMG_1889.JPGattachicon.gifIMG_1891.JPG

Ahhh, my home town!  Grew up there.  I was just there last Monday-Wednesday.

Deschuttes just came to Raleigh, NC. Draft only but bottles soon. Now if we could only get Ironhorse (Irish Death) or Funky Buhda (Last Snow) my life would be complete.

Every pub in town has Irish Death on tap.  Iron Horse Brewery is 100 miles away.  It's not my fav dark beer, but it's certainly drinkable.

21st Amendment Brewery's Watermelon Funk Sour Ale

http://21st-amendment.com

WaterFunk3b.JPG

 

We have transformed our summertime watermelon wheat beer into Watermelon Funk, a mind blowing, shake your booty, interlocking sour bass lines with syncopated sweet fruit notes and downbeat aromas and we give you all that in a signature groove with the hip and sway of Lady Liberty.

 

Alcohol Content: 6.7%

Color: Pale Straw

Hops: Magnum

Yeast: French Saison

Malts: Two-Row Pale, White Wheat

Special Ingredients: 100% Fresh Watermelon Puree, Lactobacillus planterum

 

 

Beer School Is in Session

I hope that you took the time to watch that video. It's a great lesson in how beers come into existence and how sours can be made commercially. I didn't know the story about the original version that was made in collaboration with Russian River. Did you catch him mention Toronado in there? That San Francisco bar has an amazing beer selection on tap, and holds a special place for me because that's where I first tried “that beer with the funny name”, Pliny the Elder.

 

I've been known to enjoy 21st Amendment's Hell or High Watermelon wheat beer in the summer. It's light and refreshing. I can't down many though, as the wheat beer taste gets old on my palate.

 

In contrast, there is nothing old about Watermelon Funk as it really does blast the watermelon madness well beyond its lightweight sibling.

 

DRINKABILITY: Funk Yeah

For the uninitiated, sour beers can be quite the first sip experience. Most people either love or hate them. Not much middle ground. Personally, I love them, and the more sour the better as far as I'm concerned. Keep that in mind as you read.

 

Watermelon Funk has plenty of sour. I hate it when you buy a sour that isn't sour. I want my mouth to pucker so hard that it's almost inside out after swallowing the funky elixir. This one delivers a nicely tart finish that feels balanced overall.

 

“Balanced Sour” seems like an oxymoron, but Watermelon Funk has enough going on in the non-sour arena to balance the tart. The saison yeast taste definitely comes through, adding to the overall complexity and enjoyment.

 

As one who likes sours, I found Watermelon Funk quite drinkable and satisfying.

 

GOLFABILITY: Danger of Watermelon Crawl

Golfability is a two-fold category. First, would you enjoy drinking this as you play, and second, would drinking this put the stink eye on your golf performance.

I actually drank the first one of these on the course. Packed it in blind based upon the Hell or High Watermelon pedigree. Luckily, it was a welcome quench during the hot afternoon round. Actually had two of them on the front. It happens, it was warm.

 

After two of them, I felt like I had hit the zone for lubed links, but be aware that this one has a 6.7% kick, compared to the 4.9% in Hell or High. As a sour, it almost doesn't taste like beer, and it's easy to tip back that one that puts you in the bag with your bag.

 

Buyagainability: Funked It Up

I'm not totally sure if this beer is limited in its run. It's not listed as a seasonal, rather as a part of the Insurrection Series for 21st Amendment. I have no clue about that series. My guess is that it will be their experimental line.

 

Regardless, I'll grab another sixer of Watermelon Funk for the remaining hot months, both at the course and the pool.

Well, that sounds good.  Let's go in here and see if I can get one.

EDIT:  Nope, no 21st Amendment beer, but the Reuben sandwich was really good with a Lagunitas IPA.  I told them with a name like Amendment XXI, they really need to carry 21st Amendment Brewery beer.

Ha, love it - sounds like the country song: "I'm not good at ((work stuff)) .. but I'm pretty good at drinkin' beer"

 

Anyway, same here - barely adequate golfer, pretty good beer drinker.

"Save The Robots"

Yeah, no kidding, that's the name Radiant Pig gave to this IPA

IMG_20170711_204108423.jpg

 

Light in color but strong on flavor - a good one!

 

Sorry, Dave but passed on the Watermelon one...

 

Tried the Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale next. Nice but a touch on the malty side for me, though still very drinkable ;-)
