A new brewery on the coast hell yes I am going to go seek it out. Found the time and we found the place it was time to see what was new. SKW which is the initials the Brewer/Owner he was there and we talked beer and found out what I could. Steve was very nice and we talked hops, barley and special Newport water. I had the taster tray and found there where some good brews and some that needed work. The Old Oil Stout was a great brew. But I have to be fair and impartial as much as I can be the Sunset Red there was something wrong with this brew it was slick and oily and very off with the aroma and flavor. Now to go back and be nice the Felony IPA was also very nice. It seemed hit and miss with some of the brews. Hey I am going to give Steve a break he is on a new 1.5 barrel system and still dialing in the recipes and the brews. I wish him all the luck he has a great music line up on weekends and some tasty treats when you are hungry. Be sure to sop by and say hi. Steve is a great host and I wish him all the best.

SKW was a gem of a find, after feeling grossed out with Rogue. I saw their sign from the street, Googled and found out that they were a hatchling brewery in town. Wandered in and as the only customer, had a nice chat with the brewer/owner/operator. He’s pouring his heart and soul into getting the place off the ground by doing almost everything himself, from brewing to pouring. There’s not many frills, but the beer that flows is impressive. Incredibly fresh, clean, bright, expressive takes on classic styles that are really rich and uncompromised. The Common had the most flavor for that style I could imagine. And the dopplebock was sinfully smooth and really complex. Conveniently located, this is a great alternative to Rogue’s overbearing, mediocre presence and a place to real support the little guy doing his own, unique thing.
