New Beers: 7/19


New Beer 7:19:13This week LifeSource is happy to present to you, the discerning craft beer-loving public, some very special releases! First off, we’re excited to welcome the arrival of San Diego’s Ballast Point, who until recently were only available to enjoy in draft format within the borders of our great state. Now in bottles, we are rolling out their flagship Sculpin IPA and the massive El Dorado Double IPA. Brewers from this region have garnered a reputation for rich, bristly hop profiles in their IPAs, and these offerings are right on par. Also out of San Diego comes Stone’s long-awaited ‘w00tstout’, brewed as a collaboration between Stone Brewery,’s Drew Curtis, and actor Wil Wheaton of Stand By Me  and Star Trek: The Next Generation. An odd grouping, one might suggest, but apparently website founders and sci-fi icons know a thing or two about brewing monstrously delicious barrel-aged stouts! Along with a special and seasonal release from Heater Allen, Double Mountain, New Belgium, and Schooner Exact, you’ve got yourself an amazing lineup of new bottles to savor whilst relaxing in your sun-soaked method of choice! Cheers!

What’s New at LifeSource?



You can now find gluten free egg noodles nestled amongst the pastas on aisle 7. This gluten free tagliatelle from Jovial Foods was created in the traditional Italian method with carefully selected varieties of rice. Now you can eat traditional Italian gluten free! Try this healthy pasta in your favorite recipe.

emmerAlso new to the grocery shelves local Emmer Flour from Camas Country Mill. Made from Emmer Farro grown in Junction City, OR and milled in Eugene. This ancient grain has a weak gluten structure which makes it easier to digest for many non-celiac individuals with wheat sensitivities. Closer to Durum (pasta) wheat than bread wheat, Emmer will not rise significantly in bread making but its delightfully sweet and nutty flavor is fantastic in flatbreads, pitas, pastas and baked goods.

And watch for Einkorn Flour coming soon!
