10 Barrel Brewing Co / Cider Weisse

10 Barrel is inventing its own beer style by fermenting crushed Granny Smith and Pink Lady apples and blending it with its GABF award-winning Berliner Weisse. The result is a dry, crisp and refreshing sour beer with a hint of something a little different. It's low in hops so you'll be able to taste the fruit as well as the wheat, and its golden color will shine in your 2014 commemorative glass. And it's light-bodied and moderate in alcohol so you can get back in line for this one.

Old Town Brewing Co / Yosteamite Sam

In keeping with the outlaw spirit of beloved prospector (and namesake of this sessionable beer) Yosemite Sam, Old Town’s common beer bucks convention with a big dry hop of Northwest grown hops. A single infusion mash of Pilsner, caramunich and aromatic malts was dry-hopped with Centennial and Ahtanum hops. A clean-fermenting yeast lets those simple, straightforward doses of hops shine through. This beer is light-bodied with a clean, crisp finish; nothing common about it.

Omission Beer / O'Shandy

This unique gluten-free beer is brewed from traditional brewing malts (two-row pale and caramel) then crafted using a special process to remove the gluten. The hop bill includes Alchemy in kettle, and Citra in the whirlpool and dry-hopper. The "Shandy" flavors come from the addition of grapefruit peels that give the beer a big citrusy flavor. Challenge your friends to see if they can tell it's gluten-free!

Paradise Creek Brewery / Huckleberry Pucker

According to the brewery, most people’s first statement when tasting this beer is “Wow! It’s like drinking a sweet tart.” This award winning, amazingly tart, sour mash Berliner Weisse is tempered with the sweet essence of great Northwest huckleberries. The huckleberry aroma draws you in and the tartness makes you come back for more. Don’t miss this unique sour.

Payette Brewing Co / Blood Orange IPA

You can get some vitamin C with your vitamin B with this beer. Its sweet malty base is derived from a grist of two-row, crystal, honey and Munich malts, which is then hopped to balance with Centennial, Chinook and Columbus hops, lending a citrusy hop flavor and aroma to the brew. The bright, tart flavors of blood oranges add to the beer's complex flavors, plus make it extra refreshing!

Pelican Pub & Brewery / Phil's Pils

This isn't your father's pale, fizzy lager. Pelican's pre-prohibition lager (aka "pre-pro") will stand up to any craft ale with its hefty malt base (Pilsner and dextrin malts), hop presence (three doses of Oregon Ultra hops), body and flavor. This rounded, malty brew underwent three weeks of cold fermentation with a highly attenuative lager yeast to give you that clean, crisp finish. If you haven't tried a pre-pro before, you'll be thanking Pelican for the introduction.

pFriem Family Brewers / Hoppy Wheat

Most American wheat beers are light, malty brews with only enough hops to balance, but pFriem has turned that around with a hop-forward version you'll want to try before it's gone. Four additions of Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops – including at whirlpool and two separate dry hop additions– provide the hop flavor and aroma with moderate bitterness to balance the Pilsner and wheat malts. Soft Mt. Hood water keeps the bitterness at bay.

Port Townsend Brewing Co / Extra Special Hop Diggidy

The grain bill for this one is simple – almost 100% premium two-row, with a touch of caramel malt – leaving plenty of room for you to taste the multiple doses of Amarillo hops. The beer is dry-hopped twice with Amarillo – once "warm" in the fermenter, and then again in the cold conditioning tank. This gives the beer extra hop flavor without extra bitterness.

Portland Brewing Co / Raspberry Oregon Honey Beer

The original Oregon Honey Beer won a Bronze Medal at the 1994 World Beer Cup and Silver at the 1995 Great American Beer Festival. Twenty years later, it's resurrected for the festival and as a limited-release offering, Oregon-sourced white clover honey is added to the kettle during the boil. Red raspberry puree from Oregon Fruit Products Co. is added on the second day of fermentation. A moderate hop schedule includes Nugget for bittering and Willamette for flavor and aroma.

Prodigal Son Brewery & Pub / Huckleberry Wheat

This light-amber wheat ale keeps the hops (two additions of Mt. Hood) on the down-low so you can taste the huckleberries added post-fermentation right before kegging. The huckleberries, picked from Sawtooth Berry Felds at Mt. Adams and Catherine Creek in the Grande Ronde Valley, supplement the sweetness of two-row, white wheat, Vienna and acidulated malts in the grist. California Ale yeast keeps it clean so you can taste what Mother Nature and her clever brewers intended.

Rock Bottom Brewery / Cascadian Kölsch

Rock Bottom employs a special brewing process in this beer, known as ""Cascadifying."" That means taking a perfectly good European style and adding a ton of American hops to it. In this case, Kölsch beer – a light, crisp beer fermented cold like a lager with an ale yeast – gets Cascadified with Nugget, Citras and, of course, Cascade hops. The hop bitterness balances the malty base, letting the hop flavor and aroma prevail. The yeast is fruity, yet restrained – in short, the perfect representation of the beer's Teutonic roots.

Rogue Ales / Rogue Dopplesticke

This beer is described as a "super strong double altbier." Brewed with 100% Weyerman malts and fermented with Kölsch yeast, it has a traditional German alt flavor and enjoys the benefit of "free range" Oregon water and a dry-hopping schedule that includes Revolution and Alluvial hops, grown especially for Rogue. Feeling Rogue-ish? Of course you are!

Scuttlebutt Brewing Co / Jalapeño Tripel

This beer will surprise you. Not a burner at all, it's surprisingly refreshing and drinkable. The broad pungent flavor of jalapeño and serrano peppers ally beautifully with the pear and clove flavors contributed by the Belgian wit yeast. Two-row barley malt and rolled oats provide lots of fermentables – and ferment they do, up to 9% alcohol. Nuggets do a little bit of bittering, and Tettnangers provide hop flavor and aroma, but not so much that you lose the pepper flavors.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co / Double Latte Coffee Milk Stout (Collaboration with Ninkasi Brewing Co)

Brewed for Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp Across America collaborative 12-pack in collaboration with Ninkasi Brewing, this beer was inspired by the perennial café favorite. Double Latte combines two of the greatest things in life: good coffee and great beer. Oregon’s Ninkasi Brewing knows its way around a good cup of joe. Featuring cold-press coffee from the legendary Stumptown Coffee Roasters and a dose of milk sugar, this coffee milk stout is a rich and roasty treat.
