Beer Blast for April 28, 2017
When It Rains, It Shines
Worthy Beer Blast for April 28, 2017
Strata IPA On The Rise
It pays to be prudent, if not skeptical. Is this beer really that good? Does the new hop really make a difference? Will beer lovers really love it?
Worthy has been working closely with our friends at Oregon State University and Indie Hops on pilot brewing with their new hop, X-331, which IH is naming “Strata.” This is the new open-pollinated Perle with the tropical, terpiffic, multi-layered flavor profile that’s been generating a bit of buzz recently.

Stoker Red On Fire
Worthy’s new release, Stoker Red Ale, continues to light it up. We released this hoppy red ale a few months ago in 12 ounce cans to fill the need for drinkable reds that deliver a crafty hop punch.
Based on retail and draft sales, and customer feedback, we are stoked.
At the Earth Day Brewshed Brewfest last week in Springfield, the people spoke. They awarded Stoker Red first place in the inaugural brewfest against 17 other brews.
The Brewshed Brewfest was sponsored by the Oregon Brewshed Alliance in an effort to raise money for Oregon Wild, a non-profit working hard to keep our waters wild, fresh, pristine and brewable. Read more…
Planning a party? Worthy’s new banquet hall, the marvelous Hop Mahal, is now open and ready to spark and feed your imagination.
We think you’ll like it. Check out the repurposed barn wood, certified Cuckoo Wood and enchanted art work, featuring “Andy Warhops,” “Klanks,” “It’s Easy if You Try,” and “The Big Bang.”
Discover Beertopia – A place for epiphanies.
In next month, we plan on opening up the upstairs “Star Bar,” an adult only mezzanine with a clear view of the Cascade Mountains as well as the sound stage in our beer garden.
If the weather cooperates, which it will, we are pleased to announce that the Hopservatory, which is operated by the Worthy Garden Club, a 501©(3) non profit, will also open. With the help of The Obervatory at Sunriver, the Worthy Garden Club will be offering tours of the cosmos.

More Beer Please
After maxing out it’s original brewhouse from 2013, Worthy has made the jump. We’ve added a ton of new equipment. The new shiny toys will allow Worthy to hit North of 40,000 barrels.
Take a trip inside the brewhouse with Dustin Kellner, Worthy’s Master Brewer. In Bay No. 1, we’ve upgraded every tank, except for two. And we have begun to build out Bay No. 2 with three Big Bertha 240 bbl fermenters and one shiny 240 bbl brite tank.
Those two original tanks? They’ll help Worthy continue to brew specialty smaller batch beers whenever it strikes our fancy. The Big Mothers will help us meet a growing demand in existing markets, which include Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Northern California.
As always, we appreciate your support. For a real live, in person tour, give us a call.
Fake Craft? Follow the Money
Does it matter to you where your “beer money” goes?
Do you care if the bottle or can of beer you’re about to buy, the label on which looks and sounds crafty, is in fact fully or partially owned by a gargantuan, multi-headed foreign conglomerate?
Do you hope and believe that by buying that “crafty” beverage you’re supporting local jobs? Local “Mom and Pops?” Local values? Local non-profits?
Do you “vote with your dollars” and try to make choices that favor the homegrown Davids against the corporate Goliaths? Read more…
