Claim 52 Brewing, TJ’s Gardens collaborate on craft cannabis and beer project

BeerPulse - Sat, 04/21/2018 - 11:36

(Eugene, OR) – For the second year running, Eugene businesses have teamed up to create a product that highlights what Oregon is known for: craft cannabis and craft beer. In time for 4/20, Claim 52 Brewing will be offering two limited-release beers, both inspired by TJ’s Gardens’ award-winning cannabis.

There is a reason cannabis characteristics can be used to create an exceptional beer. Humulus lupulus (hops), used by brewers to flavor and preserve beer, is derived from the same ancestor as Cannabis sativa (cannabis) and both are members of the Cannabaceae family of flowering plants. Female hops and cannabis flowers have physical similarities, and both contain terpene compounds. According to Travis Mackenzie, co-founder of TJ’s Gardens, “At TJ’s, we focus on using plant genetics with unique terpene profiles. Terpenes are the organic compounds that give each of our cannabis strains a unique taste, aroma, and effect.”

After smelling the different cannabis strains that TJ’s Gardens had to offer, Claim 52 head brewer Bryce Fisher decided to create a recipe for a hazy IPA that captured TJ’s famed strain, Durban Poison. Using citrus zest, grapefruit puree, Simcoe and Citra hops, the beer mimics the strain’s fresh piney, citrus flavor and aroma. For the IPA, Fisher made an excellent choice of cannabis type. HighTimes magazine, the definitive resource for all things marijuana, named TJ’s Durban Poison the “Best-Tasting Bud on Earth” in 2016.

The sweet berry aroma and floral flavor of TJ’s Mountain Berry Kush inspired the head brewer to create a Berliner Weisse style of beer. Fisher brewed the sour beer with x hops and over 900 lbs. of blueberry, strawberry, and blackcap raspberry puree grown in the Willamette Valley by Stahl Bush Island Farms.

Partnerships between craft cannabis and craft brewing industries have, to date, been rare. Even without much precedence, collaboration made a lot of sense to both Eugene companies. Claim 52 and TJ’s Gardens focus on developing flavorful and enjoyable offerings, and they value community involvement highly. As head brewer Bryce Fisher put’s it, “Claim 52’s goal is to make dank beers, being inspired by Tj’s flower helps us do just that.”

Claim 52 and TJ’s will be celebrating the release at both their locations on Willamette St in downtown Eugene, Oregon, on April 20. The newly opened taproom and the TJ’s on Willamette dispensary will feature custom glassware and merchandise to commemorate the event.

About TJ’s Organic Gardens

With farms in both Oregon and Washington, TJ’s Gardens is committed to growing perfect marijuana—developing and acquiring spectacular genetics and then allowing the plant to reach its natural genetic potential before processing at the optimal time. TJ’s Organic Gardens is also known for donating free hemp oil to any child with a seizure disorder and OMMP card. Their signature dispensary, TJ’s on Willamette, is located in downtown Eugene, Oregon. There they offer a hand­picked collection of flowers, edibles and extracts sourced from their own gardens as well as from trusted partners. Learn more at tjsgardens.com and at visittjs.com.

Oakshire Hellshire Day 2018 details announced

BeerPulse - Sat, 04/21/2018 - 08:52

(Eugene, OR) – For the fifth consecutive year, barrel-aged beer lovers will gather in Eugene, Oregon for Oakshire’s annual Hellshire Day. This renowned barrel-aged beer festival features over 40 rare barrel-aged beers from around the country, served up in a single day on Saturday May 12th. The festival’s headlining beer is Hellshire VIII; Oakshire’s 2018 Vintage release in the Hellshire series of bourbon barrel-aged imperial stouts. In addition to the Saturday event, aficionados of specialty beer may start the celebration early, on Friday evening May 11th with The Hellshire Experience; an intimate all-inclusive evening with Oakshire’s Lead Brewer Dan Russo and Founder Jeff Althouse, featuring Vintage draft pours from the beer library, food and live music.

On Saturday May 12th at noon, Hellshire Day kicks off with an incredible variety of barrel-aged beers, available in a small, casual, beer festival atmosphere. Due to extremely limited availability for many of the beers, the list evolves, but currently shows 36 breweries represented and 31 beers determined (see attached). “It’s a great honor for us that our brewery friends from around the country continue to share their rarest beers with us,” said Dan Russo, Oakshire’s Lead Brewer and curator of Hellshire Day’s beer offerings. The festival will also feature food carts Buck Buck (fried chicken), Oregon Wood Fired Pizza, Bing King (Chinese street food) and more. Live music throughout the day will round out Hellshire Day (and evening) wrapping up at 8pm.

Oakshire Founder Jeff Althouse describes the fest as “a celebration of the pinnacle of craftsmanship in beer making. Hellshire Day showcases rare and special beers from a variety of independent brewers. The community gathering of beer makers and beer drinkers at Hellshire Day is a rare experience in the underworld of barrel-aged beer.”

The Hellshire Day Barrel-aged Beer Festival will run from 12pm-8pm at the Oakshire Public House, located at 207 Madison Street in Eugene. $30 In-advance (thru 5/11/18), available now at oakbrew.com/hellshire or at Oakshire Brewing’s Public House, or $35 at the Fest. Tickets include festival entry, festival glass and 5 tokens. Most beers are one token ($2) per 4oz pour.

Hellshire Day, May 11, 2018 also marks the release of the eighth installment of Oakshire’s barrel-aged Hellshire series. Hellshire VIII is a take on Mexican coffee: a big and bold chocolaty imperial stout aged in 4 Roses Distillery Kentucky bourbon barrels. Showcasing a natural and sweet vanilla from the wood; cinnamon, cocoa nibs, coffee, and escalating peppers, Hellshire VIII takes after the Especial versions of the previous two years. “The spiciness comes through as a warming pepper sensation across your palate, super smooth and crazy drinkable for the high ABV” said Dan Russo, who also leads Oakshire’s barrel aging programs. Clocking in at 14.0% ABV, Hellshire VIII is a bold and otherworldly stout available in 22oz wax dipped bottles with label art by Weirdo Artist Sean Aaberg.

Hellshire VIII Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with cinnamon, cocoa nibs, coffee, vanilla beans and dried peppers is available at Hellshire Day $20 per 22oz bottle

Furthermore! On Friday, May 11th (Hellshire Eve) from 6-9pm we celebrate the Hellshire Experience with the Oakshire Team, live music, food, and Vintage pours from the beer library. This behind- the-scenes all-inclusive warehouse party will give barrel-aged beer fans and industry professionals the chance to try Hellshire VIII for the first time along with other special vintage offerings. Also included is an extremely rare Oakshire Vintage Brunch in Hell 750ml Bottle for each guest to relive the experience in their own time. The first bottling for this perennial favorite is a divergent offspring of Hellshire VIII’s base beer laid to rest in a freshly dumped St. Croix Rum Barrel. This single barrel breakfast inspired beer features and Organic Vermont Maple Syrup and single origin Columbian varietal coffee roasted by our friends at Slightly Coffee Roasters.

The Hellshire Experience will run from 6pm-9pm at the Oakshire Public House, located at 207 Madison
Street in Eugene. $100 Advance Tickets (thru 5/10/18) available now at oakbrew.com/hellshire or at Oakshire Brewing’s Public House. Hellshire Experience Tickets also include an 11am VIP Hellshire Day festival entry, festival glass and 5 tokens. Most beers are one token ($2) per 4oz pour.
