President’s Day weekend marked the return of Zwickelmania, a day long, state-wide celebration of Oregon craft beer. Sponsored by the Oregon Brewers Guild, Zwickelmania gives craft beer lovers a behind the scenes look into their favorite beers and the breweries that make them. This is a day when breweries open their doors to the public offering free tours and samples, often times right from the fermenters. The name Zwickelmania actually comes from the term zwickel, which is the valve on a fermenter that brewers use to pour samples and see how the beer is coming along.

Hometown: Roseburg, Oregon
Favorite Beer: Right now? Give me something dark and hoppy. Oakshire O'Dark:30, Laurelwood Ink Heart CDA, or Deschutes Hop in the Dark come to mind. Also, Firestone Walker Velvet Merlin or Wookey Jack. I have a particularly soft spot for great sessionable rye beers and amazing pumpkin beers, like Fort George Quiet Rye-It and Southern Tier Pumpking. I'm a Portlander, so a big hoppy Imperial IPA is always going to get my attention. Honestly, too many amazing craft beers to name out there which I am a fan of.
Favorite Beer Haunt: Horse Brass, Belmont Station, Caps & Corks, Bottles, and Roscoe's.

The long awaited opening of Worthy Brewing was kicked off with a very successful soft opening on Monday in which there was a sizable crowd and a wait to be seated. This seemed to be a great start for the grand opening that is planned for April 5th. The brewery is a bit off of the current Bend Ale Trail path but the reason is very obvious being the massive facility has room to flaunt it’s 29,000 sq. ft. of space. Unfortunately,the brewery wasn't open for tours but they made up for it with an extremely friendly and apologetic (even though it wasn't warranted) staff, quality menu and a taster tray that cradled their five opening releases. The taster tray is designed to hold six tasters but they only had five available consisting of:
