COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Collaboration Stein beer from Tomme Arthur and Tonya Cornett of Bend Brewing.

It’s not too often the brewing process requires us to make beer in a mind over matter sort of way. Hot Rocks Lager presented us an opportunity to work with Tonya Cornett of Bend Brewing Co. on a collaborative project. Working with our brewers to bring her recipe to fruition, she decided to "Rock It" old school.

You see, not too long ago, brewers produced beers by pulling glowing orange rocks from raging fires. The sizzling rocks were heated until they glowed like hot magma and were then dropped into the wort causing it to boil. Smoke, steam and volcanic rolling boils became the hallmarks of what German brewers call "Stein Beer". Hot Rocks Lager was brewed this way and transported us back in time. The production of this beer made for a memorable experience. As collaborations go, this one ruled. Because as everyone knows, playing with fire is cool.

A little rye in the aroma. Dark brown and very very cloudy. This has a home-brew Englishness to the beer. Quite tasty stuff.

There’s a common taste in most of Port Brewing beers. I want to say it’s a combination of nutty and creamy. Subtle, but reoccurring. This one had a bit more kick than I expected. The color threw me off for sure. Vanilla Nutty cream with a zingy aftertaste. Great beer!
