Ok, as I usually tell people up front, I am notoriously tough on fast food joints. What I seldom get to say is Im even tougher on breweries, beer pubs, etc. I'm not a big consumer of beer and am very picky. That being said...Oakshire Brewing, you can relax and enjoy!! Tough thing to say when reviewing a brewery but I only like Porters & Stouts unless I need something else for cooking... and even then I can be too picky for my own good. I have tried many over the years and recently found Oakshires Overcast Espresso Stout is an outstanding Stout! Rich, full of flavor and a perfect beer to sit by a fireplace or campfire and let the day be no more. The flavor is smoother than many other Stouts and not harsh like some. Well done!!
The new tasting room is awesome; I've filled my corny keg here for years, but only recently has it become a "desination" that outstrips its keg-filling utility. It has a nice industrial vibe to it, and they have excellent, often innovative beers on tap that range beyond the ordinary run you'd find at restaurants in town. Kudos to Oakshire, especially, for experimenting with Belgian styles--too many breweries in Eugene, and Oregon generally, get stuck in IPA-mode. Oakshire has some authentically interesting beers, second only to Gilgamesh perhaps in their inventiveness.
OMG, the Overcast Espresso Stout is just so flipping yummy!! Of course their other beers are good too but I love coffee and good beer. Combined is just too exciting and Jeff does it right!
Not much of a beer drinker but the hazy pale ale was delicious. Definitely recommend it for anyone who is mainly a beer drinker.
I just love the Oakshire amber... take a few growlers home for the week and I know that one of my favorite local beers is in the fridge waiting for me.
