  • Double Mountain Kolsch
  • Angry Orchard Crisp Apple
  • HUB Organic IPA
  • Double Mountain Hop Lava

Angry Orchard Crisp Apple offers a crisp and refreshing cider mixed with the  sweetness of the apples producing a subtle dryness for a balanced cider taste. The fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, ripe apple flavor make this cider hard to resist.

It pours a pale yellow color with a slight foam layer. The aroma is a mixture of smooth and sweet. It has an ABV of 5%  and IBU of 20.

Kolsch, brewed by Double Mountain is a light German Ale and produced with a light body, delicate fruitiness and rounded maltiness which is attributed to the unique yeast strain commonly used. The Kolsch is unfiltered and more generously hopped than its German cousin. It offers a 5.2% ABV and 40 BU.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!

Katelyn Convery

Katelyn Convery

Katelyn Convery joins Mock Crest Tavern Saturday evening, July 12th at 9:00 p.m.

Katelyn was born in Portland, Oregon, and is a singer-songwriter who draws inspiration from the human experience and her travels across the world.

She purchased her first guitar at the age of 16, taught herself to play, and started writing simple songs. She continued writing songs in high school and during her first 2 years of college at the University of Oregon. However, real inspiration didn’t hit until she traveled to Europe in 2006 to attend a study abroad program in Oviedo, Spain.

“Leaving the country for the first time was like being reborn. It was like breaking free of my self-made cocoon and finally being able to see past the end of my nose. It began a period of processing my feelings and observations through song-writing. And it’s never really left me since.”

Katelyn now resides in Cape Town, South Africa, where she hopes to record a full-length album including her most recent songs in the next year.

Brumby consists of a long-lasting group consisting of three cousins and a life-long friend. Tyler was given a left-handed set of strings for his ninth birthday and the lives of  him and his friends were forever changed. Drummer, Dylan Self, and bassist, Spencer Tingey, followed suit in the following years. Later, Oliver Tingey picked up a microphone and it was that moment they realized their potential.

In the 80′s he moved to Portland, Oregon. After several name and band changes, The Blueprints were born.

Today he sings lead and harmony vocals; plays the keyboard, and harmonica, as well as writes and records his own music. Feel free to listen to his music and learn more about him on myspace.
