Why I selected the Figgy Pudding:

This was the first beer ever bottled by Block 15 and the second year they have released it, selling quickly each year. A dark, rich ale that gives off sweet aromas of molasses and brandy with the taste of the figs and sweet spices throughout. This is one of my favorite beers anytime of year, but certainly on a cold winter day when a little warming is needed. Block 15 does an amazing job barrel-aging and blending many of their beers and Figgy Pudding showcases that perfectly. It’s also a great beer to cellar and enjoy months or years later.

About Beaver State Beer:

I have been working on Beaver State Beer since September 2011. I spent my childhood on the coast of Maine before moving to a small town east of Salem, Oregon for my high school years. I graduated from Oregon State University in December 2010 and now work full time in downtown Portland. Since I have been of legal age I’ve loved everything about craft beer and its prevalence in Oregon. I’ve spent time tasting, distributing, and also more recently, brewing craft beer (but mostly just tasting). My passion grew to where I felt I had to start writing and I have loved every minute of it.
