Max's Fanno Creek Opening - May 5

Max Tieger, who was formerly the brewer at Tuck's (westside), has been working on his own new brewery down the road in Tigard. For those of us who have a hard time rousing ourselves to go further than walking distance for a beer, that seems like a trek, but apparently it's worth it (so goes the buzz on the Brew Crew listserv, anyway). So mark it on your calendar:
Max's Fanno Creek Brewery
12562 SW Main St., Tigard (directions)

Grand Opening, May 5th & 6th
11:30a – 11:30p

On tap will be:
  • Farmer's Daughter - Belgian Strong Ale, light in color, with coriander. Malty, not a big hoppy beer, and one of my favorites. 6.5% abv
  • Golden Ale - One of our lightest beers, dry-hopped with Crystal hops, this beer will keep you going all summer long. For a little variation, we sometimes will offer a Habanero Golden Ale. 5.0% abv
  • IPA - Nice hoppy Northwest style IPA, dry-hopped with Centennial and Cascade hops for a wonderful citrus aroma. Come try a sample glass! 5.5% abv
  • Nit Wit - Classic Belgian Wit (wheat) style. Smooth, well balanced example and one of the favorites from the "regulars" crowd. 5% abv
  • Stout - Big, bold and beautiful. 6.5% abv
  • Scottish 100 Shilling - Amber beer typical of the Scottish style - small to medium hop profile and nice malty flavor. Made with 2-row, Munich and Roasted Barley grains and Yakima Goldings hops. 6.5% abv
In honor of the Grand Opening, Max is tapping some special beers:
  • Aged Smoked Märzen - German amber lager beer / Octoberfest style made with 20% smoked German malts for a well-balanced and delightful beer. 5.3% abv
  • Year old Belgian Tripel - Grand-Cru style Belgian Ale, light in color, big on flavor. Malty, big beer, come in at 9% abv
  • 2 yr old Imperial Stout on Nitro - Very dark in color, big beer that ages well (we will have Imperial Stout over 1 year old on Nitro tap at the grand opening!). 9% abv
Some pretty fascinating beers there. Two year old stout for a new brewery--nice foresight, and a great way to christen the joint. The Farmer's Daughter, Tripel, and Smoked Märzen look to be worth a sip, too.

As always, holler if you go and let us know.
