Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Amnesia's Dusty Trail Pale

Bouncing around Portland for Music Fest NW, we took a break from the cosmically awesome collection of bands that had descended on the city to sip some brews at Amnesia Brewing, an excellently rustic beer-hall style brewery and pub at the north end of the city. With temperatures tickling the three-digit mark, a cold beer sounded swell, but an overly hoppy one, well, sounded like a punishment to our dehydrated palates. We opted, at the recommendation of the perfectly Portlandia-looking bartender, for the Dusty Trail Pale Ale, a dry-hopped creation that, unlike many Northwest pales, wasn't too spicy. And this is great, considering the Northwest trend of hopping pales to the point that they're essentially IPAs. This beer is crispy and, when served as cold as the pints we tasted, works well as a fall beer... that is, if fall continues to be this damn hot.
