      Deschutes and Rouge have brewpubs in Portland, they might have something on their sites.
      Best thing to do is use Google Maps and use "Near By" option once selected Portland and then search Beer.
      Wait are we talking Maine or Oregon?

      Then check out their site they might have a gift card option.
      I just did the "Near By" search and came up with this for just page 1.
      I saw on the list they have a Rock Bottom, they must offer giftcards online, they are pretty decently sized.

      Last night between my fiance and I we enjoyed each one of the SN Beer Camp Beers, and I have to say
      I couldn't pick my favorite of the four. All of them were special.
      DIPA - Just a solid DIPA, not to hoppy not to malty very well balanced.
      Black Ale - This was great, doesn't have the typical burnt flavor found in most black ales, juniper was nice also.
      Weisenbock - WOW, this also was perfect to the style, liked this one more than the SN 30th WB they released last year.
      CA Common - If this was a little lower in ABV% this would be an idea session beer.

      I wish they would continue making these, they are great!
      Also wish SN would make a mixed 12 pack of the regular releases and add a seasonal as the 4th style:
      Pale, Torperdo, Keller/Stout, Seasonal
      I would buy these all the time!

      Last night my wife and I went to a tasting event for La Trappe's Oak aged Quads. Interesting stuff. Only one batch, Batch #3, has been imported to the US before and they got a small amount of the other batches for some tasting events.

      Cool event, always fun to try something new. I think I'm going to put together a little oak aged beer assortment for memorial day...

      Batch #1 was my fav.

      New Oak Heavy Toast 18.2%
      New Medium Acasia 9.1%
      Port Medium Burnt 36.4%
      Port Medium Toast 36.4%

      Holy crap! That was a good beer. I went to a beer tasting party thing for my friend getting his plate at the flying saucer over the weekend. Some of what I had:

      - Rocky Mountain Brewing - Da Yoopers (cherry pie beer, tasted phenomenal!)
      - 2009 or 2008 Dark Lord (white wax)
      - Lost Abbey Deliverance
      - Goose Island Vanilla Bourbon County Stout
      - DFH Hellhound
      - 1997 Sam Adams Triple Bock
      - Pliny the Elder
      - Brewdog Sink the Bismarck!
      - Upright Oyster Stout
      - Trinity Brewing TPS Report
      - New Glarus Raspberry Tart

      Some really good stuff!

      On a sad note, my beer fridge stopped working today and it is 100* outside. I keep it in the garage.

      Innis & Gunn, has anybody ever had this before? I've been loving oak aged beers lately and this popped up on my radar. I haven't really searched for it yet but it looks like it may only be available on the east coast. Is it worth searching out or just meh?

      Sierra Nevada's 30th anniversary series of Grand Cru. Very good.

      I picked up a 4 pack of Jordan's Double Chocolate Stout. Pretty good, but at $9 I expected a bit more. Has a very creamy mouth feel. I found the chocolate flavours a little subtle, but that isnt necessarily bad. The most prominent flavour I found was coffee. Overall its better that the Miller Light I have been drinking since I moved.

      Got a sixer of Short's Irish Stout in the fridge.

      on another note after last Friday i cannot drink Rolling Rock anymore

      great lakes lake erie monster: a hoppy ipa. it was good, i'm just not an ipa person.
      great lakes honey ale: excellent ale, with the sweetness/taste of honey.
      great lakes black out stout: desert in a glass. amazing imperial stout! i will have more of this, saturday.
      sam adams summer ale: very light, tangy beer. you can taste the lemon in it. refreshing after a long day!
      samual smiths oatmeal stout: i plain didn't like it. haha.

      if you can't tell, i'm a little partial to great lakes.

      nothing wrong with that.

      i'm going to have to find some of the GLB Honey Ale. sounds great. hopefully my local places carry it, but i doubt they do. for some reason, even being in NE Indiana, they tpyically only have a couple options for Great Lakes Brewery.

      I think Great Lakes Lake Erie Monster and DFH 90 Min are a great comparison, they have a very similar flavor profile, but LEM has a better hop profile than 90 Min, IMO. 90 Min is just too malty for me; I like my DIPA to have a hop kick to them.
