Oregon Trail

The Oregon Trail Brewery is in an odd location. It’s tucked into a corner of the Old World Deli, which has all sorts of old European facades inside to give you the feeling that you’ve stepped into a 19th century European village. Unfortunately, the cheap, cafeteria-style tables and chairs detract from the feeling. The little deli in the back has the Oregon Trail beer on tap, but they don’t have any formal taster trays. One of the women working there improvised with those little plastic salsa containers, though, and she gave me some complimentary chips to go along with the pint I eventually ordered. Did a brewery tour, which was fun. They’ve crammed a lot into their small but vertical footprint — the rooms aren’t particularly big, but they have three floors and have incorporated gravity into the beer-making process. Fun. Also got to try their Hopdoctor, a hopped-up version of the Beaver Tail, and it was really good.

Oregon Trail: the Old World Deli refreshment — Corvallis, OR

    Rob’s Picks

  • Wit – very drinkable, really nice balance
  • Brown Ale – very drinkable
  • Beaver Tail Kolsch – very drinkable
    The Rest

  • IPA – hoppy and crisp, but more on the soapy than citrusy side
  • Ginseng Porter – odd but okay. Ginseng flavor not too overpowering, but brewer said they were dialing it down a bit.
