Back in 2017 I went to Denver to attend my first Great American Beer Festival. On my first night there I went to the Pink Boots Society Rare Beer event. That’s where I met Brewer Cat Wiest. At the time she was working in Santa Cruz, but then flicked me a note saying she landed a job in Oregon. During my visit to the Oregon Coast last November I thought I would stop by and catch up with Cat at her new position at the Pelican Brewpub in Pacific City, OR.
I was very fortunate to visit a beautiful part of British Columbia. I traveled highway 16 in the Northern part of the Provence recently and I made a stop in the community of Terrace. Sherwood Mountain is a brewery focusing mostly on lagers and has been quite successful in the local area. On a very busy Thursday afternoon, I sat down with the brewer and co-owner Darryl Tucker.
