Vertigo Taproom features the best from our brewers. We opened with a handful of favorites but expanded to include our customer’s favorite selections of beer. The following beers represent the wide selection (usually) available in our taproom. In stores, restaurants, and taprooms around the Hillsboro (and surrounding) communities, we offer a limited selection. Our customers are our biggest supporters, if you want our beer at your favorite watering hole, tell them about us and our beers.

Left, Nut Brown
IBUs: 27 | ABV: 7.1
Good Things are better during the right season. It is spring/summer and the [left] Nut Brown season has passed. Our Winter Warmer, our American brown ale is brewed with Golden Promise base malt for the nutty character, tempered with an abundance of Crystal 120L, Munich and chocolate malts to give it a malty richness. Northern Brewer and Mt Hood hop additions balance the nutty, malty profile. The kicker is the five pounds of honey per barrel to finish the flavor.

“SuperDude!” Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stout (Coming Soon)
IBUs: 50 | ABV: TBD
We are getting ready to brew this bad boy again, so stay tuned. Dude will Abide! Aging for six months in a Big Bottom Whiskey Barrel, this dark full-bodied stout absorbs maximum amounts of bourbon character and flavor. Rich and smooth, the “SuperDude!” is our best stout yet.
Tropical HeatWave Blonde (Coming Soon)
IBUs: 15 | ABV: 5.1 | Scoville Heat Index: Brutal!
Our “Tropical Blonde” with a kick; the key lime tropical flavor infused with habanero chili heat. More than a subtle spice, a flavorful burn. On its own or in a blend (try the Razz or Arctic Blast) to tone down the heat. Consume at your own risk.
