Grains of Wrath PDX

With avid interest, we follow the careers of certain brewers that stand out in a sea of hops and barley.  Returning guest, Michael Hunsaker has definitely had our attention.  His long journey from East to the West will work up your thirst, but don't worry their newest location will yield more beer, to help your holiday cheer.  Damian also returns, shaking off a somber stretch on the opposite coast with some of his favorite beer styles, Ryan learns to rock a bit harder, and Mike attenuates a new brew deck. Focused distribution straddles two sides of the Columbia River, this week, on Brew Happy!
