Some beers from Northern California and Oregon

This amber brew from the Dunsmuir Brewery Works was pretty good. Unfortunately, the accompanying food -- this seems more a restaurant than a true brewery -- was undistinguished and over-priced.

The Black Bear Diner in Klamath Falls wanted to serve me a Budweiser, so I settled for this from a large Portland brewer. Not bad for a blonde beer.

This Ninkasi IPA from Eugene Oregon was superb. Unexpectedly, the Spinner's Seafood, Steak and Chop House in Gold Beach where I encountered it is a high quality restaurant, serving fresh fish and even decent veggies.

This Shastafarian Porter from the Mt. Shasta Brewing Company in Weed, CA was uninteresting -- surprisingly tasteless. But you gotta love what they are doing with the bottle caps. Apparently the big manufacturers who supply these things didn't like their message; then the bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms got into the disapproving act. But since the brewery rallied citizen support -- and they are after all located in the town of Weed -- WEED FOUGHT THE LAW AND WEED WON!
