05/14 at 07:00 PM Hair of the Dog / Scott Carsberg Dinner****SOLD OUT**** Tonight we're combining Hair of the Dog, one of the finest breweries in the world, with the food of James Beard award winning chef Scott Carsberg. Our aim is to push the boundaries of what food and beer can do together, and with this combo I don't think we'll have a problem. Ticketing info soon to come. Hair of the Dog Brewing Company Alan Sprints - Brewmaster Hair of the Dog Brewing Company was founded in November of 1993 with the purpose of providing beer lovers with new and unusual beer styles. Creativity and originality have been cornerstones of the company's philosophy since it was founded. Each Beer has its own name and unique identity; like the people who have inspired them. The brewery is family owned and operated, a proud member of the Oregon Brewers Guild as well as the Pacific Northwest's rich brewing heritage. We produce over 600 barrels of Beer a year in our 4 barrel (120 gallon) Brewhouse and bottle approximately 5000 cases a year. The rest of our beer is served on draft in our tasting room and at a few select accounts in Oregon and elsewhere. Hair of Dog is proud to be one of the first breweries in America specializing in the production of high alcohol, bottle conditioned beers as well as experimenting with the barrel aging process since 1994. Currently, the brewery has 180 oak barrels used to age Beer from 6 months to 8 years. We use new oak as well as previously filled spirit and wine barrels. All the Beer is made by two Brewers, Jesse Shue and Alan Sprints. We are also dedicated to buying local products for both the Brewery and restaurant in an effort to keep as much of our money in our community. We work directly with farmers whenever possible and are proud to say that 99% of all the ingredients we use are produced within a 350 mile radius of the brewery. Our Organic Pilsner malt is from Gambrinus Malting in British Columbia, the water runs pure from the Cascade mountain range, hops are grown in Oregon and Washington and both bottles and labels are made in Portland. Since we opened all the graphic design has been created by the Felt Hat of Portland. The original brewing equipment has been recycled from other industries and is still in use today. After Brewing all the ingredients are used for animal feed by a local farmer. Scott Carsberg - Chef "The idea that cooking is a craft appeals to my passion and instinct. There are no limits or borders in cooking, only the constant pursuit of simple perfection. I use only the best ingredients, with two to three elements on each plate, in a combination that highlights flavors and accents seasonality. In my kitchen, the best of the carrot stays as a carrot. Condiments are applied to a dish as an accompaniment, not to over power. This is the essence of Italian influence in my cooking. During the process of creation, I do not forget my fellow artisans, craftsman, and mentors who have come before me. I remember the farmers who produce the foudation of the dishes I create. Their craft and knowledge must be treated with respect and shown in a light of undisguised purity. Minimalism puts a creative person in a state of nakedness and reveals the true artist. Therefore, the vulnerability of minimalism has to be supported with the ingredients of the highest quality. Conformity is for the technician. Simplicity is for the cook."

5/19 from 12 - 4 2013 Cascadia Soccer Beer Fest
Cascadia is known for its passion for beer and for soccer. Rival supporters from Portland and Seattle have for a rare moment put the rivalry aside for the shared love of beer. Come celebrate Seattle Beer Week with us at the Pine Box and try beers from Portland and Seattle supporter groups. Timbers Army and Gorilla FC will be represented by beers brewed for them by local breweries. The Vancouver Southsiders have been invited to the event as well, though their beer is still in the developmental stages. It will be a celebration of soccer, and the beverages we like to drink! While the groups differ in who they support on the field, we all share a love of beer. Here is a chance to meet members from both supporter groups and the supporters behind the beer.
The lineup (with potentially more to be added) is:
Widmer Brothers Brewing, Green & Gold Kolsch(Portland,Oregon)
Green & Gold Kölsch is the creation of longtime Timbers Army member Abram Goldman-Armstrong, who won the “Full 90” category of the 2012 Timbers Army Homebrew Competition with this recipe. Goldman-Armstrong has been brewing variations of the Kölsch style since becoming acquainted with it in its native Cologne, Germany, while attending the 2006 World Cup; he entered his latest version of the style into the competition, which incorporated his homegrown Hallertauer hops. Malts: Two-Row Pale Hops: ABV: 5.2%, IBU: 35
Dicks Brewing Co.: Au GFC (Centralia, Washington)
Dick’s Brewing Company is also working with GFC and they have produced the Dick’s Au GFC. The Dick’s Au GFC is a Golden Ale brewed with American Two Row, Malted Wheat, and Magnum hops. The Au GFC is dry hopped with 3 distinct varieties; Saaz, Mt. Hood and Tettnanger. The first sip brings refreshing crispness with a slightly sweet malty aftertaste. The dry hop adds a nice floral and herbal backbone to the beer making it a great session beer. Julie Young, Owner and Dave Pendleton, Head Brewer of Dick’s Brewing Company said, “We are very excited working with GFC as we are huge football fans! We love supporting GFC’s charity activities and are happy we can do that through our beer.” ABV: 5.5%, 45 IBU
Lompoc: Kick Axe (Portland, Oregon)
This light, copper-colored beer packs a big floral nose with notes of citrus & pine. The malt delivers mild caramel flavors and the Cascade hops finish with a clean and crisp grapefruit bitterness. Our tribute to the Timber’s Army. A crisp, easy drinking pale ale. Dry hopped in the fermenter with Cascades giving of a huge hop aroma. 5.2% ABV, 40 IBU.
Big Al Brewing Co.: Civ’s White IPA (Seattle, WA)
Big Al Brewing created for Gorilla FC Civ’s White IPA which is made using American Two Row, Malted Wheat, Unmalted Wheat, Oats, and given bitterness and aroma with Nugget and Cascade hops. This beer was designed with balance, flavor, and drinkability in mind. A refreshing wheat beer, with a unique Belgian character, balanced by an assertive bitterness and bright hop aroma and flavor and comes in at 6.0% ABV. Alejandro Brown President/Head Brewer of Big Al Brewing had this to say about the project “We are proud to partner with Gorilla FC who share our passion for Seattle Sounders FC and our commitment to community. We look forward to raising many pints of Civ’s White IPA and funds for local charities while supporting our beloved Sounders with this remarkable organization!” 6.0 ABV, IBU 58
