Oregon Coast Jazz Party Celebrates Ten Years of Jazz

John-Clayton-(w)2World class jazz musicians will perform at the 10th annual Oregon Coast Jazz Party Friday, October 4 through Sunday, October 6. Concerts take place at the Newport Performing Arts Center and the Shilo Inn Suites Hotel in Newport.

Picante, one of Portland’s finest Afro-Cuban groups, will be a featured band at the Party.

Old Rasputin: One of the Top Ten Stouts from the West Coast

North Coast Brewing Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, 12 oz bottleLaurie Delk of 100 beers. 30 days. just chose Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout as one of her top ten favorite stouts from the West Coast:

“Rich, homemade molasses cookies, baking spices, clove, nutmeg, cardamon, and even pepper prickled my nose. On the palate, tobacco and dark, dark chocolate with its trademark bitterness, a wonderful complement to the sugar and spice.  And this one is everything nice.”

North Coast Brewing Releases Grand Cru

North Coast Brewing Grand CruWe’re very excited to release our latest premium beer, Grand Cru. We’ve had a good time exploring the brewing possibilities outside of the standard beer styles; Grand Cru doesn’t fit neatly into any established category.

Reminiscent of our Gold Medal-winning Twentieth Anniversary Ale, North Coast Grand Cru is brewed exclusively with Pils malt, with an addition of agave nectar in the kettle. It’s subtle, complex, and lightly hopped with a deceptive 12.5% ABV, and aging it in oak gives this unique beer an extra dimension. The result is really champagne-like.

North Coast Grand Cru will be available in July in 500 ML bottles with a cork and wire finish and in 1/6 BBL kegs in limited markets throughout the country. Read more.
