Free Tastings & Other Events

Beyond simply selling beer, we want to educate and expose people to the dizzying array of beer, cider and mead available in Oregon. To facilitate this, we frequently offer free tastings, "Meet the Brewer" nights, theme weeks, and other special events. These events offer an excellent way to learn about styles and the brewing process, as well as meeting the folks responsible for creating your favorite adult beverages. Unless otherwise noted, all events listed as "tastings" are free and open to everyone over 21 years of age.

Snowdrift's orchard is set against a dramatic backdrop of basalt cliffs in sunny East Wenatchee, Wash., where they have been growing apples for over 30 years. Come taste a wide variety of their offerings, including their dry, semi-dry, summer red and their perry, made exclusively from central Washington perry pears.

Jeff Alworth's 'The Beer Bible' Book Release & Signing

We are excited to help long-time Portland beer writer Jeff Alworth release his new book, The Beer Bible. Described as, "the comprehensive, authoritative book that does for beer what The Wine Bible, with 550,000 copies in print, does for wine," Alworth's book is the result of years of research spanning over 17,000 miles, six countries, and 52 breweries. Jeff will be on hand to talk about his new book, and of course, there will be books for sale and Jeff will happily personally sign them for you. Come get the first look into what promises to be both an engaging read and a valuable resource!
