Sarah's Beer of the Week 05.03.18

Bend Oregon.  Home to a LOT of amazing beer.  I have friends who vacation there, solely for the beer.  While I haven't been, I do enjoy finding beers from there to try.  This time, I spotted something interesting at Whole Foods.   A bomber.  Ahh...Freak Oat Oatmeal Pale Ale.  Yep, oatmeal pale.  That's not something you see every day.  This is from Silver Moon Brewing.  I found it smooth, and crisp, yet a thicker mouthfeel.  And yes, hoppy, but not overly so.  Rumor has it, the oatmeal is what gives it the smooth and creamy mouthfeel.  Definitely pine forward, more so than I would have thought for a pale.  This was a fun beer to try, as it's different, but not outside of the scope.  Meaning, I don't need wacky ingredients, but change is also good.  I will continue to try beers from Bend, and I suggest you do the same!
