Eugene Water and Electric Board is celebrating their 100th anniversary this year and Oakshire is delighted to be making three seperate beers to honor their 100 years of service to Eugene. Some of you may remember the first beer released earlier this summer, Green Power Pale Ale. The second beer to be released will be entitled Land Trust Lager and will be an Octoberfest style beer. Land Trust Lager gets it’s name from the unique partnership between EWEB, Oakshire and Mckenzie River Trust. Land Trusts are non-profit organizations directly involved in the permanent protection of land and its natural resources for the public benefit. The McKenzie River Trust (MRT) is a local land trust that works to protect land in eight different watersheds in western Oregon by accepting donations of property, buying land or helping landowners establish legal restrictions on their land that protects their conservation values. Protecting the clean, pure water of the McKenzie River is where MRT began its efforts in 1989, and today that exceptional water from the McKenzie is the #1 ingredient in local beer. All proceeds from Oakshire’s Land Trust Lager go to the Berggren Demonstration Farm project, located on land owned by the McKenzie River Trust along the lower McKenzie River. To learn more about MRT and the Berggren Farm Project, take a look at this video. Land Trust Lager will be released at 16 Tons on September 8th in conjuction with the Eugene Pearl District annual block party. To learn more visit Eugene Pearl District for further details.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Dirty amber, a little fiery, large frothy off-white head, decent lacing.   Soft toasted malt nose, a little grainy and bready.   Very smooth on the tongue, very nice maltiness, decent sweetness, a touch of toastiness and whole wheat bread.   Wow, I was really surprised by this one.   I am really liking it.   I wished more fall seasonals were this good.   Also having this about 8 months after it was out, and its still great!   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Clean finish, bready, very malty, touch of sweetness, a bit of graininess that is in check given its sweetness.   Very clean and enjoyable, great malt presense.   Yeah, really good stuff!
