Beers with Beshear: The Oregon Pale

Kindsey Bernhardover 1 year


You've heard the phrase "Beers with Beshear," and now it's coming to Thursday through Sunday. Like many Kentuckians across the state at 5:00 pm, we are going to start having a "Beer with Beshear" on the website. With taprooms, bars and restaurants closed across the state, the craft beer industry in Kentucky is suffering. Each day we will highlight a different Kentucky craft beer to show our support of all the amazing breweries across our Commonwealth.

Mirror Twin Brewing: The Oregon Pale

When I saw Mirror Twin Brewing in Lexington released this beer, I HAD to get my hands on it. So on Tuesday, I drove from Northern Kentucky to Lexington to grab a 4-pack of The Oregon Pale. The Oregon Pale is a play on the famous computer video game, The Oregon Trail. The game was created in the 70s, but was popular in the 90s and early 00s. There was nothing better than when you walked into computer class in grade school and you got to play The Oregon Trail all class. In case you've never heard of the game, it was meant to teach school children about the realities of 19th-century pioneer life on the Oregon Trail. As a Pale Ale, this beer has the right balance of refreshing and crisp and hoppiness, which is why I love Pale Ales. You could easily crush all four 16oz cans, but I wanted to save this beer for as long as I can. No need to worry about dying of dysentery when it comes to The Oregon Pale. Style: American Pale Ale (APA) ABV: 5.9% IBU: 30 Description: A quarantine has left the wagon full of beer. You may:
  1. Drink beer.
  2. Drink beer.
  3. Drink beer.
  4. Drink more beer.
