Why we selected Jubelale:

You know the summer is over, and the holidays are coming when you see the first bottles of Jubelale hit the shelves. Despite the subtle recipe changes from year to year, it is truly a classic. It pours dark, has a sweet malty presence, mixed with a spicy overtones, along with a well balanced hop presence.

One of my favorite beers to look forward year to year.

Father, husband, co-founder of #pdxbeergeeks, super nerd, and lover of craft beer. When not on full time daddy duty, I can be found at local beer events in the Portland area.

About PDX Beer Geeks:
One night not long ago (Wednesday, July 20, 2011 to be exact) a couple of beery people met up over beers during the Upright Brewing event at Belmont Station’s Puckerfest. After an hour or so of hearty laughter and general mirth, they moved the party to a local brewery in an effort to further their #31beers / #31breweries accomplishments for Oregon Craft Beer Month. Born from initial friendship over local beer, and the resulting discussion of organizing a group of locals for quarterly gathering to enjoy and discuss craft beers, #pdxbeergeeks is the brain child of Michael (@mmcooljam) and Emily (@emilyengdahl).
