Head down to Ground Kontrol to not only drink delicious beer by Laurelwood, but challenge their brewers to an arcade game or pinball table of your choice. With a huge selection of classics ranging from Ms. Pac-Man to Mario Kart and the biggest & best pinball selection in the Pacific Northwest, you’re sure to find your specialty! If you best the brewer, you’ll win Laurelwood prizes!
We’ll have some special selections available at the bar to enjoy before, after or during your brewer battle! Buy a Laurelwood and you’ll get a raffle ticket that will put you in the running for a grand prize: a pair of Laurelwood’s Portland Timbers tickets!
- Piston Pale Ale – A pale ale with a bit of a hoppy punch to keep you on your toes, as well as pleasant citrus (think grapefruit) and pine notes.
- Gose the Gozerian – Laurelwood’s take on the classic beer style that originated in Leipzig, Germany! Gozerian gets its tart, lemony flavor from the Lactobacillus bacteria (say that three times fast) used to acidify the beer. This bacteria is very similar to those found in yogurt or sauerkraut. That tartness is balanced by coriander and salt’s savoriness thanks to Portland’s Jacobsen Sea Salt, who extracts their product from the Oregon Coast! Gose the Gozerian can be best described as hazy, light, refreshing, and very sessionable… Just in time for summer.
- Workhorse IPA – An extremely well-balanced yet flavorful IPA with a heavy handed dose of hops in the kettle, hop back, and 2 separate dry-hop additions. A slightly sweet finish helps balance the hop bitterness and creates an ale that is both big on flavor yet remains quite drinkable.
With three excellent Laurelwood beers available at the beer (while they last!), everyone will walk away a winner – but only those that beat the brewers will walk away with fabulous prizes!
