2 Reasons Why I am Drinking Claim 52 Beer

One of the newer breweries in town, Claim 52 is quickly finding a consistent place in my pint glasses. I have tried almost all of their beers and there are two that really stand out.

The Claim 52 Kölsch and the Motueka Extra Pale ale.

Both are crisp, light, and so refreshing. Very drinkable beers and with light bodies, one just doesn’t seem like enough. These beers make me wish it was a hot summer day so I could enjoy them in the sun. The darker Stormbringer Oaked Stout was underwhelming and the Pressure Drop IPA was not the same hop punch in the face I am used to around the Eugene. I have not gotten a chance to try the Lotuseater Double IPA. Perhaps that will have the hoppiness I am accustomed to. Still very a new brewery the beer offered and styles made is likely to grow and evolve  I recommend trying all their beers, but if you see the Kölsch or the Motueka on tap, get a pint. I am betting you will get more than one.

If you haven’t gotten a chance to try any beers you probably missed Zwicklemania and their tap take over at 16 Tons Cafe.  You can find a pints all over town or head over to West 11th area on Fridays for dock sales. I got my last pint at Whirled Pies on Monroe (great Happy Hour). Here are a couple pics from their location at 1030 Tyinn Street, Suite 1
