Norman Ale – Hop Stories Video

Hopstories Collaboration #1: Norman and Calapooia Brewing from Eric Buist on Vimeo.

The band Norman approached Calapooia Brewing to create a beer that tasted like their music. The result is a perfectly balanced Pale Ale. Look for the beer all over Oregon and scan the QR code on the bottle to receive a free download of the entire album.

News and John Vanderslice show

It’s been a while, but we’ve been busy behind the scenes working on the release of our third studio full length.  Artwork is 90% done, and we’re gearing up for a release here soon.  Everything is looking and sounding great.  The music is melting away at me as I prepare for an official announcement of the release date and album title.

Also, some new shows have been added to the calendar, and there will be more to come.  I speak for all of the Norman crew by saying how much we’ve missed playing out.

One show I’m really excited about is with the one and only John Vanderslice, and it’s in Salem of all places.  John has been a long time inspiration and it just so happens that he’s a total sweetheart too.  It will be nothing short of an honor to join him for a set.  Check here for tickets and see what he’s all about if you haven’t heard JV:

Looking forward to sharing more, but want to just let you know the sleeping giant known as Norman is about to wake back up.
