Eugene Magazine: Lamb (Venison) Recipe

Rack of Lamb (or Venison)

“I grew up in the Appalachian Mountains in south central Pennsylvania,” says Burnheimer. “Where I am from everyone has venison throughout the winter even if you don’t hunt. Neighbors give out backstrap like it was candy corn on Halloween.”

Season your rack generously with salt and pepper. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Heat up your pan, add oil, tilt pay away from you, and place in oven and cook to internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit (medium rare). Take out of the pan and rest for at least 10 minutes before serving. Reserve pan juices.

Quince Red Wine Reduction

Heat up remaining pan juices from the rack recipe until the juices sizzle. Add red wine of choice, reduce till it starts to get sticky add a ladle full of quince cooking liquid, reduce till sticky, add a dab of butter and whisk, picking up all the bits on the bottom of the pan. Assemble dish with celeriac, quince, rack and finish with sauce and fresh thyme. Serve to people you love.

Eugene Weekly: The Growler Rush

Just imagine: The year is 1777 and, after a long day commanding troops in the Revolutionary War, future first President George Washington just wants a brewsky. A striking figure with silver mane, ruffled collar and white culottes, Washington gallivants around the colonies swinging a bulbous vessel frothing with his compatriot Samuel Adams’ brew (most likely a porter). Maybe the vessel even has some old-timey hand lettering like read more…

Register Guard: Make it Fizz!

America’s love affair with soda began long before icy bottles and cans were portrayed in ads quenching the unquenchable summer thirst.

At the same time that our forefathers were brewing root beers, people were discovering the supposed health benefits of drinking carbonated water from mineral springs.

Root beer was something made by farmers, alongside beer, wine and cider. The cellared beverages were products of a bountiful Read More…

Eugene Daily News: An Afternoon at The Agrarian Ales Hop Farm

As I turned onto West Crossroads, I thought for sure Siri (my navigator) had gotten mixed up! Surely there could not be a brewery out here. This time of year it is a familiar sight seeing those large sprinklers going off in the fields. This one in particular caught my attention because it reached the other side of the road. I began my plan of attack, sneaking up on the sprinkler, to time it just right when I saw the sign for Agrarian, this side of the water.

The Register Guard: New breweries build on local beer boom

Based at Crossroads Farms near Coburg, where Tilley’s parents have farmed since 1984, Agrarian Ales doesn’t use the controlled conditions typical of modern breweries. “We’re brewing Old World style,” explains Tilley. “During winter when it’s 50 degrees in the brewery, we brew beers that can handle the lower temperatures, such as lagers and kölsches. In the summer, we’ll brew more Belgian saisons and French bier de garde styles, where the yeast can handle higher ambient temperatures.”

The Portland Mercury: Oregon’s Wild

Agrarian’s Tobias Schock is the dirtiest brewer I have ever met. He’s covered in dirt and mud when I meet him. “Tobias has been weeding in the hop fields,” Tilley explains. Before that he was tending peppers, and before that he was checking pressure levels in the brewery. He’s proud of the dirt on him, and every day he works hard to earn his end-of-day “Field Bier,” Agrarian’s light, dry work beer.
