Beers with Beshear: The Oregon Pale

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.

Shoutout to my Willie in the background. And yes, he is named after Willie Cauley-Stein.

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.

    All for supporting the local breweries. If what you do on Friday thru Sunday at 5 is listen to the governor talk on the radio/internet give updates you are a complete and total loser. Focus on other things, family, friends, and yourself. The virus is apart of everyones lives, it’s not magically going to disappear. The news doesnt change, it’s healthier to stay away on the weekends. Everyone I know personally that drink to the news is about as interesting as tax work on your birthday. Drink with good company, check on people, have a zoom happy hour. Say what you want about the governor he’s the best we have in the situation we’re in, he’s done a lot of good. However everyone could agree, there hasnt been a single individual state wide who would look at that him and say “yah he seems like the type of guy that would be a great time to sit down and have a beer with!” Beshear just isnt that guy, he comes across as the guy that wipes his pecker after sitting in a stall to go tinkle.
