Long Brewing, a 3.5 bbl. pico brewery out of his home in Newberg, Oregon, will be at Corvallis Brewing Supply for a few hours pouring their Kolsch, Pilsner, and IPA. Although Paul Long is a retired engineer, he grew up in the mid-Willamette Valley helping his dad out on the family farm. When the price of hops dropped like a hot rock, during the 1970's, his dad pulled out the fields and converted to other commodities. But, to this day, Paul has a great connection with the hop farmers of the Willamette Valley and he knows how to use those pungent little cones! Knowing how to use hops does not mean bashing them into the beer with an over-abundance. Rather, a delicate hand at the right moment for the right effect for the good of the entire beer.
Paul's beer is sincere, clean and a true definition of "craft" brewing. The tasting is free and since it's six-pack Friday you an enjoy a 15% discount on 6 or more bottles.
