We used to get Big Rock beers here 20 years ago, and I remember liking them. Good find!
I had the IPA and the Tannen Bomb from Golden Valley Brewery in McMinnville, OR. Absolutely wonderful. The Tannen Bomb was maybe the smoothest, cleanest winter warmer I've had.
Also enjoyed an India Red Lager (I know, don't get me started) which was brewed as a collaboration between Hopworks Urban Brewery and Deschutes for Portland Beer Week. Really interesting. I'm not much of a red/amber fan, but they got the malt just right and it definitely expressed the hops and the yeast, too.
I don't like pumpkin beers much, either, Mark.
