Upright Brewing - Five
I happened to discover Upright Brewing the other day via the interwebs and they seemed right up my alley. It appears that most of their beers are in the Belgian tradition and they are located right across the Broadway Bridge in NW Portland. Their tasting room is only open on Saturday and Sunday from 1-6pm (cash and check only) but they state that their beer can be found at most specialty bottle shops and on tap at most bars. Bull-fucking-shit. I tore my area of town apart trying to find a single 750ml bottle to no avail and I have never seen this shit on tap anywhere. This beer is harder to find than a disease free hooker that is over the age of 18. As I found out, however, both are just as sweet when obtained. I found their full line at John's Market and took home "Five." Five is a farmhouse style that is pretty "hopped" up. I have to say this is the best fucking Belgian I have had that is not imported and it is even up there amongst the best imports. I think I have a new favorite brewery. Amazing, just amazing. 5 out of 5. Drink it.
