Oakshire Brewing - Ill Tempered Gnome Winter Ale
After my last beer review, some bitches freaked out because I called the brewery a piece of shit for being so arrogant despite the high caliber of their beer. This evening, however, I picked up a 22oz from Oakshire Brewing and to my utter delight their label reads as follows: "Humble brewers of delicious beer." For this I love you Oakshire. This is the first time I have seen any of their beers in Portland and it looks like they are moving up the ranks as Point Blank is their new distributor. This is hands down one of the best winter brews I have consumed and I have thrown back many, many, many winter brews from all over the West Coast. I will continue to look for their other beers and purchase them accordingly. Great job, Oakshire. You are the shit! Good luck in your future endeavors and I will be supporting you along the way. 4.75 out of 5. Drink it.
