A Note on This Beer
Oregon’s Willamette Valley is beer paradise. The lush valley floor is home to the state’s most prodigious hop farms, and countless breweries dot the landscape from Eugene to Portland.
But, if you’re looking for Lagers, head straight to the little town of McMinnville, where you’ll find Heater Allen Brewing — winner of Oregon Live’s People’s Choice Award for Best German Style Beers in the State!
If you’re really lucky, they might have a can or two of today’s McMinnville Harvest Lager.
To craft this tribute to the valley, the brewers started with their own German Pilsner recipe, but flavored it with Willamette Hops!
Each crisp sip shines with breezy floral notes and hints of fresh baked bread crust. Nuances of lemon zest linger on the tastebuds long after the last sip, along with a bold pop of pithy bitterness that practically screams ‘Pacific Northwest.’
If you ever find yourself in the top left corner of the country, do yourself a favor and spend some time exploring the Willamette Valley. And, when you see the signs for McMinnville, follow them straight to Heater Allen.
Until then, a clean, crushable sip of McMinnville Harvest Lager can show you what this beer paradise tastes like.
