Coin Toss Brewing to host fresh-hop showcase
Fresh-hop season is in full swing as Coin Toss Brewing hosts "OC Fresh Hop Showcase" through Sunday, Oct. 6. Six different beers brewed by Oregon City's five breweries are on tap.
"As brewers, this is absolutely our favorite time of the beer year," said Tim Hohl, founder of Coin Toss Brewing. "There is so much delicious local beer happening in Oregon City, we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to show off what our hometown breweries can create with this once-a-year style."
