At Belmont Station, we don't just sell you beer, we want you to learn about it too! We believe that every beer has a story. That's why we host a lot of great events. From Meet the Brewer nights to can release parties and from simple in-store tastings to Puckerfest, our annual weeklong celebration of sour and wild ales, we hope you take away a little more about the beverages you're enjoying. Unless otherwise noted in the event description, events have a free entry. You must be 21 or over to enjoy tasting events. Please be prepared to present proof of age. Cheers!

Belmont Station 20/20 Kick-Off Party

Saturday April 1 | 11 AM (at the Horse Brass)/1ish(Parade) – All Hours

We’re kickin’ it old school and starting this 20 Days for 20 Years celebration at The Horse Brass Pub, where Belmont Station got its start in 1997 as a side project (literally – it was next door to the Brass).

Hit the Brass, grab a beer, and enjoy a slice of complimentary birthday cake, because at 1 PM, we march! A Scottish piper band will lead this ragtag parade of revelers north a few blocks up 45th Street to Belmont Station’s current location, where we will be joined by the Three-Headed Hop Monster IPA, a collaboration from Barley Brown’s, Boneyard and Melvin – an encore brew of this popular beer that was revived just for this party!

Bring a thirst, because we also will be tapping several other very special beers! Some are drafts we rarely see around these parts, and many were made just for our anniversary -- some of which will also be released in collectible bottles and available in the bottle shop to take home:

Many brewers and brewery reps will be on hand to chat about our special anniversary beers, plus there will be plenty more libations and at least a toast or two!

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A CASH ONLY EVENT IN THE TAPROOM! ATM on site, but plan to bring cash! Credit cards welcome at all times in the bottle shop.

Finnriver Rare Cider Tasting

Sunday April 2 | 2-5 PM

Cider lovers rejoice! One of the Northwest’s favorite cider makers, Finnriver, will be in the bottle shop, sampling an enticing array of their amazing ciders -- including a few that rarely make it off Finnriver's farm on the Olympic Peninsula -- selected especially for our 20th anniversary celebrations.


Golden Russet -- the inaugural release of Finnriver’s new ‘Orchard Series’ ciders – handcrafted almost exclusively sourced from Finnriver’s Chimacum Valley orchard.

Fire Barrel 2016 Harvest -- aged in Washington rye whiskey barrels for about 5 months, it offers whispers of whiskey and rye spice, smoky aromas and notes of caramel and vanilla with a soft tannic finish.

Both Golden Russet and Fire Barrel 2016 will be available for sale in the bottle shop, along with other Finnriver ciders.

Additionally, in the taproom, Ginger Bug, will be pouring. Made with organic white ginger from a family farm in Kauai, it is a brand-new, one-off draft-only cider that will only be available in Portland at Belmont Station at this time.

Finnriver always hosts informational and exciting tastings, and we are very pleased to feature them during our “20/20 (20 days for 20 years) Anniversary Celebrations”!

Fremont BS IPA Release Party

Monday April 3 | 5-8 PM

When was the last time someone offered you a nice, cold can of BS? Well, Seattle’s Fremont Brewing is doing just that! There might be more to the moniker (maybe they are Sounders fans?) but we prefer to think of this delightful IPA’s name as a nod to Belmont Station’s initials and our big anniversary -- and the “20” on the cans confirms it! Brewed with several Belmont Station employees, who made the trek up to Seattle on brew day, these cans are limited and are guaranteed to go fast! The Fremont crew will be in-house around 5 PM to chat about Fremont and this beer in particular -- and maybe offer us all a little BS!

Buoy Belmont Imperial Extra Red Ale & Stormbreaker Station-to-Station DIPA Release Party

Tuesday April 4 | 5-8 PM

Both Buoy and Stormbreaker brew crew members will be on hand to help launch these beers brewed especially for Belmont Station’s 20th Anniversary with Belmont staff on-site during brew days! Buoy’s draft-only BIER (Belmont Imperial Extra Red) Ale will be pouring in the taproom, and Stormbreaker’s Station to Station IPA will be on draft -- plus 22-ounce bottles of Station to Station (with very cool labels) for sale in the bottle shop to take home! It’s guaranteed to be a fun night with some tasty beers!

Additionally, Sera of Faery Hair Sparkles joins us on the back patio from 5-8 PM to sparkle up our hair (and beards and mustaches …)! Many of you have noticed that several Belmont staffers have subtle sparkly threads in their hair -- that’s Fairy Hair Sparkles! Check out her Facebook page to get a better idea of what these magical threads are all about and plan to sparkle it up with us -- if you dare to be different!

German Bier + Fairy Hair Sparkles = German Sparkle Party!

Mini-Puckerfest Kickoff with Flat Tail & Cascade!

Friday April 7 | 5-8 PM

Our summertime sour and wild beer celebration is coming around for a shorter stay April 7-9 as part of our 20/20 Experience -- 20 days of events to celebrate 20 years of Belmont Station! (Don’t worry, our regular Puckerfest will be here as usual in July, too!) And, just like the big Puckerfest, if you don’t fancy sours, there will definitely be some other tasty Belmont Station exclusive beers on tap to enjoy! But if sours and wild ales are your thing, this will be the place to be!

To help kick things off, our friends at Flat Tail Brewing have created a very special edition of their DAM Wild series: Belmont Station 20th Anniversary Sour Ale, made with 20 special ingredients to honor our 20 years in business (stuff like raspberries, cranberries, lemongrass, pink peppercorns and more). We will be pouring this lovely beer in the taproom and we will have special commemorative bottles available for sale in the bottle shop! Brewmaster Dave Marliave will be around 5-8 PM for what we expect will be some Flat Tail shenanigans -- and to hand out some Flat Tail swag.

Plus, it’s another edition of the Battle of the Belmont Blends! Our pals at Cascade Brewing have once again invited the entire Belmont staff to join them for a pair of special blending sessions. We split up into two groups and each blended what they think is the winning blend. But YOU get to vote on your favorite. The Cascade crew will be on hand to help us out, and a little after 8 PM, the votes will be tallied and the winning blend will be announced for bragging rights among the Belmont Staff -- at least until the next round!

Other Cascade beers on tap: 

 Jamberree: sour wheat ale aged in an oak wine barrel with 100 pounds of blackcap raspberries for 12 months, then blended with bourbon barrel aged sour quad, leaving the blackcap unadulterated in its richest, most jammy expression. 8.1% ABV

Pits-Burgh Punch: A blend of sour blond and spiced red ales aged for up to three years in oak wine and bourbon barrels with cherry pits, apricot noyaux, and vanilla beans, adding a complex cherry, almond, and floral note to the blond beer component of this blend.6.8% ABV.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A CASH ONLY EVENT IN THE TAPROOM! ATM on site, but plan to bring cash! Credit cards welcome at all times in the bottle shop.

Mini-Puckerfest Day 2 Featuring Block 15 & de Garde

Saturday April 8 | 2-5 PM

Puckerfest regulars know that Block 15 and de Garde have a mutual admiration thing going on. And far be it from us to keep these two great breweries from enjoying each other’s company -- especially when they bring a beautiful array of sour and wild ales to share!

De Garde blended a barrel-aged beer for our 20th anniversary! Called The Station, it’s available in very limited amounts for sale in the bottle shop -- while supplies last. For all you de Garde collectors out there, this is a must-obtain bottle! We also will be pouring some other stunning de Garde beers, and, of course, Trevor and Linsey will be hanging out with us at least from 2-5 PM talking and drinking great sours!

De Garde Draft: 

That’s also when the Block 15 gang will be here! Block 15's Draft List:

Mini-Puckerfest Day 3 Featuring Ale Apothecary, Upright, Double Mountain & Firestone Walker

Sunday April 9 | 2-5 PM

We conclude our Mini-Puckerfest with a fantastic lineup!

Ale Apothecary: Paul Arney brings us Belmont La Tache, an exclusive and rare blend of his popular La Tache made with raspberries and loganberries just for our 20th anniversary! This one is a sourheads dream, and Paul says it can be laid down for up to three more years, showing different nuances with age. Available exclusively in the bottle shop, you will want to get some before this rare treat disappears. Paul hopes to be on site during the event to chat and share some beer!

Upright: Alex Ganum will be in the house 2-5 PM to present Ives. Just for Belmont Station's 20th anniversary, this is a sneak preview of a bottle Upright plans to release later this year. Alex describes Ives, which was named for American composer Charles Ives, as “a straight blend of four barrels filled in the summer of 2015. The base was formulated and brewed for long term maturation with plenty of raw wheat and aged hops, then slowly fermented in the casks with a mix of yeasts and bacteria selected from our favorite existing barrels at the time. The earthy nose is followed by a sharp tartness up front, then opens with a rounded grain profile mid palate, finishing on the softer side with complexities throughout.”

Double Mountain: Rainier Kriek 2013 -- a rare keg indeed, this was the last year Double Mountain named what is now Tahoma Kriek after the gorgeous cherries that make the beer. Come try this beautiful kriek on draft!

Firestone Walker: Bretta Rose Berliner Weisse: A rare keg of this delightful Barrelworks Berliner-style Weisse magically made it to Portland for our 20/20 Anniversary Experience!

Hells (YEAH!) Bells!

Monday April 10 | All Hours of Operation

Belmont Station becomes BELL’Smont Station once again as this awesome Michigan brewery brings us another load of goodies from Kalamazoo! A Midwest treat at the midpoint of our 20/20 Experience: 20 Days of Events for 20 Years! 

In what is a very rare occasion, we got a chance to design and brew a one-off anniversary beer that we had the honor to brew on the original Bell’s system, which is now mostly used for pilot brews and small batches. The finished product, Bell’s Belmont Station 20th Anniversary Ale, will be tapped at high noon! (Don’t worry, we have plenty of this exclusive draft-only beer!) The only other place it’s being poured at this time is at Bell’s Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo!

Other Bell’s on draft: an exclusive Mango Habanero Oberon Ale (very rare and the first time in Oregon!) and everybody’s favorite, Two Hearted Ale!

Of course, for sale in the bottle shop, we will have a big stack of cans of Two Hearted Ale and this year’s recently released Oberon Ale -- and who knows what else our friends at Bell’s will surprise us with!

Friday April 14 | 4 PM-Close

What better way to kick off a weekend than with a deep vertical lineup of Deschutes’ Black Butte anniversary beers, XXV, XXVI, XXVII, and XXVIII to be exact!

In the bottle shop, look for a ridiculous amount of great vintage beers from our cellar! It’s a great way to fill in your collection, or start a new one! During this particular event, we will be featuring an assortment of well-kept vintage bottles from Deschutes. We also will be kicking off our Silent Auction of a complete vertical of The Abyss, from 2006-2016,including two variants. The auction will run April 14-20, with the winner being announced April 21.

The Besties!

Monday April 17 | 5-8 PM

The Oregon Beer Awards named Oregon’s best breweries of 2017 in three sizes, based on production: Baerlic for small brewery, The Commons for medium-sized brewery and Breakside for large brewery. Belmont Station for a third year running was named Best Beer Bar/Bottle Shop in the same awards ceremony. And because we are all friends, we thought it would be fun to have a Besties Night, celebrating not only great beer, but the wonderful community of friendships that support our craft beer culture!

Folks from all three breweries will be on hand to swap stories and enjoy each other’s beers. Don’t forget to ask Baerlic about why their saison has such an unusual name!

Pouring in the taproom:

The Commons is also bringing us a very limited bottles of Maybelle and 2013 Bourbon Little Brother available in the bottle shop to take home!

Samuel Smith’s Salute! & Tax Relief Party

Tuesday April 18 | 5-8 PM

Samuel Smith’s was one of the imports that inspired the first generation of America’s artisan brewers, so it’s fitting that we celebrate all that this amazing brewery has brought us and taught us! In addition to a nice array of Sam Smith’s bottles for sale in the bottle shop, we will have select bottles available for on-site consumption all day long. Around 5 PM, Merchant du Vin’s chief storyteller Tom Bowers will be in the taproom to tell us more about Samuel Smith’s and lead us in the annual salute.

We also will feature a Samuel Smith’s-inspired collaboration by local brewers 54°40’ and the upcoming Grains of Wrath brewing. A few folks from both breweries will be on-site, along with Alan Sprints from Hair of the Dog and John Harris from Ecliptic, all of whom will say a few words about how Sam Smith’s inspired them. We will also be pouring a Hair of the Dog beer especially chosen by Alan and the 19th Anniversary Ecliptic Belmont Station Barley Wine!

We’re Not Done Yet!

Wednesday April 19 | 5-8 PM

Closing Ceremonies

Thursday April 20 | 4:19 PM-8 PM

What better day to end this 20th Anniversary madness than on April 20, or 4/20? And what better way to commemorate the day than with a Triple Double -- a trio of Double IPAs! 

Lagunitas The Waldo’s Special Ale -- the quintessential 4/20 beer. To make sure everyone has some in their hands at 4:20, we will tap the keg at 4:19. Hey! This obviously ain’t our first rodeo! Expect some fun giveaways from the Lagunitas folks too!

Sixpoint Brewing will be joining the party with the 4/20 release of Puff, their hazy, unfiltered version of Resin that also is becoming a 4/20 tradition -- so much so that Sixpoint will be giving away Puff rolling papers, perfect for stuffing with whatever you want to puff on while getting your Puff on!
