10 Barrel reaches its Apex

Kicking off PDX beer week enjoying 15 taps of 10 Barrel brewing at Apex in SE Portland. This one is the One Hop Wonder Strong Pale, which I think might be my favorite of theirs that I have had to date! Really nice hop paired with a hefty, fruity biscuity malt. We also really liked the Red Vine Sinister. The description of red licorice was a little scary, but honestly, this was a really well made beer. The red vine was clear, but so was the traditional, dark, sessionable ale. It was just like drinking beer through a red vine straw – they even nailed the airiness of the red vine. This was a total mindfuck of a beer – beer and candy flavors at the same time. But not sweet at all. Lastly, unless you are enjoying a Belgian waffle at the time, we recommend you steer clear of the Mighty 45 Bourbon Maple.

Get out there and enjoy some beer at your favorite haunt! A PDX beer pint will get you discounts all over town.

See you out there!
