OregonLive and Labrewatory collaborate on #FakeBrews IPA

Let’s make a beer! The Oregonian/OregonLive and Labrewatory collaborate on #FakeBrews IPA
Ever wondered what it’s like to make a beer?
Yeah, me too. So, I’m going to do just that.
I figured if I’m going to write about and critique beer and breweries, I should have a hands-on understanding of the process, its complexities and its challenges. And I figured readers might want to know how it’s all done, too.
So I reached out to Nick Herrera, the head brewer at North Portland’s Labrewatory to see if he’d be willing to pair up with The Oregonian/OregonLive and do a beer collaboration – an endeavor I know very little about.

Less than two years after unmanageable debt and a bank foreclosure forced San Diego-based Green Flash Brewing to sell to a holding company, auction off its $20 million expansion brewery in Virginia Beach, close its Southern California barrel-aging facility, and pull beer distribution from 42 states to concentrate on its home and neighboring markets, the brewery that helped pioneer the industry-transforming west coast IPA style has quietly returned to the eastern seaboard.
