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.
We couldn't have the Craft Brewers Conference go by without a tap takeover with the brewery that made our 18th Anniversary beer this year, Barley Brown's from beautiful Baker City! Join founder/owner/brewer Tyler Brown as he busts out some special stuff that's never made it out of the brewpub until now! We should have most of the beers up and running when we open at noon, but this is the largest tap takeover we've ever done, so please be patient if something isn't pouring right away.
Here's the full line up:
Yup, "The Bros" -- Jason and Todd Alström will be on-site, along with a number of BA magazine and online writers and contributors. Help us put the final flourish on a successful Craft Brewers Conference, Portland-style, and also give us a hand in getting rid of some of the partial kegs that will have piled up all week long!
Dogfish Head, with its slogan, "analog beer for the digital age," has been named the Official Beer for Record Store Day, a celebration of the unique culture of record stores and the special role they play in their communities.
With the help of concert poster artist Marq Spusta, Dogfish Head has created the Official Poster of Record Store Day. The limited-edition poster is now available for free at Belmont Station while supplies last.
Spusta's art also appears on a mini traveling turntable from Crosley. Featuring built-in stereo speakers and 3 speeds, the Dogfish Crosley will be on display during our Record Store Day event! Bring in a favorite piece of vinyl and play a couple of tracks!
Best of all, at 4 PM we will be giving the turntable away to a lucky winner in a raffle. Everyone who attends the party gets a ticket, so come on by, listen to some tunes, enjoy some great beer with the Beer Advocate gang (see event listed above) and cross your fingers that you win!
