There are a variety of authentic, hand-crafted ales and lagers available for you to enjoy at Southern Oregon Brewing Company. Some of these that you can start with include-
- Big Blue Pilsner- Big Blue’s solid pale malt backbone is perfectly intertwined with noble hop additions and then lagered for 100 days. This pilsner is bold, yet balanced with a spicy nose, subtle heat and a crisp, dry finish. If you are looking to go big, take two, enjoy your evening and call me in the morning. Be careful, this one will catch you by surprise.
- Black Heart Imperial Stout- Startlingly rich and complex as its roasted, chocolaty malt aromas and flavors are balanced perfectly with Warrior hops. A slight alcohol heat lends a spice to this mammoth beer which finishes with a creamy smooth texture on the palate. Black Heart is full of body and not for the faint of heart.
- Old Humbug- A traditional winter ale with specialty malts that lend a hint of dark molasses flavor. This ale will help keep your belly warm during this holiday season.
