Formerly Liberty Brewing, until Fritz Maytag said "no". Oregon Ale and Beer Company (Jim Koch's West-Coast company) is apparently located at this same address. It's all very confusing...
Saxer purchased the Nor'Wester brand after the latter company bit the dust in 1997.
My Opinion Of The Beers That I've Tried:
13.0 points overall
Jack Frost Winter Doppelbock (bottled)
Style 12 - Bock
- 14.5 points - Beer #29-2374, Willow Glen Liquors, San Jose CA, December 28, 1997
Bright red, high carbonation, huge head. Sweet, earthy aroma. Pretty thick, kinda bitter. Lots of caramel. A little metallic at the very end. Thanks to for the bottle!
Style 21 - Fruit / Vegetable Beer
- 12 points - Beer #11-816, The HopYard, Pleasanton CA, March 23, 1995
Pale, moderate carbonation, OK head. Fruity nose...like hops, not lemon. Tastes like sweet lemon soda. Some malt behind that. Might not be bad without the lemon. Twelve points is very generous.
Oregon India Pale Ale (bottled)
Style 5 - English-style Pale Ale
- 11 points - Beer #12-847, Empire Tap Room, Palo Alto CA, April 4, 1995
Light amber, clear, good carbonation and head. Smells like Redhook. Bah! ...to Tettnangs. Sour flavor, biscuity. Some bitterness in finish, but not a lot. Some astringency.
Style 15 - Classic Pilsener
- 16 points - Beer #4-248, 1993 Oregon Brewers Festival, Portland OR, July 31, 1993
Yellow, pretty transparent. Smells very American-Lager-like. Tastes very clean. Fairly thick and sweet.
Three Finger Jack Stout (bottled)
Style 11 - Stout
- 11 points - Beer #12-851, Empire Tap Room, Palo Alto CA, April 4, 1995
Very dark brown, some fizz. Black smell, sorta smoky, a little off. Good body. Sharp. Burnt. Sharp. "The only lagered Stout we know about."
