Southern Oregon Brewing Weekly Newsletter



You’ve heard of what the I.R.S. is doing for you and if you are lucky you already have a hot little government check in your hands. Well S.O.B. has its own version of this wonderful plan designed to jump start our economy! KEG BEER!

Lets consider the economic impact of keg beer.

It costs about a $1.10 a pint or $0.07 per ounce. That’s cheaper and fresher than bottled craft beer!

It supports your local brewery….that would be us! Southern Oregon Brewing Company is trying to create family wage jobs with benefits and plans to return at least 5% of our profits to this community. Help us support Southern Oregon.

No bottles or cans to worry about recycling.

Let’s see our government do that for you!

Just in case you forgot, we have kegs of our three flagship beers (Gold, Pale and Porter) as well as our increasingly popular IPA in our cooler waiting to be adopted by a loving home like yours! Our kegs hold 13.2 gallons of fresh handcrafted draft beer which is approximately 100 pints. If you have a kegerator, it will stay fresh for several months...if it lasts that long! You know you want one!

Beer Tasting tonight at Chadwick’s Pub and Sports Bar/Rogue Regency Grill

Tonight from 5:00 pm to 8:00 S.O.B. will be serving samples of three of our fine hand crafted beers on the Regency Terrace at Chadwick’s Pub and Sports Bar/Rogue Regency Grill. They will be serving Tri-Tip steak and Oysters and we will be pouring some cool refreshing adult malt beverages to help cool you off. Julie Tolar, Pub/Restaurant Manager at the Rogue Regency would love to hear what you think about our beers! Drop by and have a dinner and a beer at Chadwick’s Pub and Sports Bar/Rogue Regency Grill tonight.

Multiple Beers in Multiple Places!

This week we have several of our favorite beer spots serving two S.O.B. beers. Joe’s Bar and Grill is pouring both our Porter and our Gold while the 4 Daughters Irish Pub is pouring our Gold as well as our Porter. These two fine establishments join The Brewery Restaurant in Grants Pass as places that offer you a choice of fine S.O.B. beers. Thanks to everyone who supports local beer. Remember, eat local and drink local!

Picking a Distributor!

The meetings in Portland went very well and we are moving in the right direction. We hope to make a decision in the near future.


We now have 70 S.O.B. Growlers in stock for your buying pleasure! If you don’t have one yet, now is the time to come in to the tap room and get yours. We sold our last shipment in 5 weeks and this set is going quickly. If you like to have fresh hand crafted draft beer in your refrigerator then an S.O.B. Growler is the way to do it!

Tasting Room Hours Change:

From now on….Saturday 3:00-9:00 Come out on Saturday and support our later hours. If we get the crowds, we will push it to 10:00. Make the S.O.B. Tap Room part of your Saturday Night fun.

T-SHIRTS: New Colors and New Styles and more sizes

We have our latest shipment of S.O.B. T-shirts in stock now. We have a full supply of shirts in many colors including Prairie Dust and Stone Blue. A new style of women’s shirts is also available. Drop by and get your shirts before we run out of your size again.


Southern Oregon Brewing Company will continue to host scheduled tours on Saturday afternoons. If you haven’t had a chance to check out how we make beer and look at our shiny stainless steel up close and personal, this is your opportunity. This week, your tour guide will be our Head Brewer, Anders Johansen! Come get the brewer’s perspective on how the brewery operates. The tour begins at 4:00 pm and will last approximately 30 minutes. It will finish in the Tap Room where you will receive a complementary pint or sampler tray of our refreshing malt beverages or a soft drink. Kids are welcome.

Here at 38 Central, our new restaurant in Downtown Medford, we pour your Gold-- a great brew with a clean smooth finish. Our chef loves to pair up our BBQ Ribs (the spicy House Made BBQ sauce is cooled so nicely with your great beer!); our Champange Battered Fis and Chips (with fresh caught ling cod and such a delicate batter, the Gold just makes the dish!); or our WORLD FAMOUS (ok, Medford Famous) Mac N' Cheese (it is the finest Mac n Cheese, made better with a pint of SOB GOLD!). He loves the fact that we have such great beers around our valley, and we love to bring our food into that mix!
