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.
White Salmon, Washington's own Everybody's Brewing will be adding a third style of beer to their can lineup with the addition of the Local Logger Lager. And the first place in Portland where you can get these shiny-new cans will be right here at Belmont Station. The Local Logger Lager is 4.8% ABV, 28 IBU's, and is described by Everybody's Brewing as "A crisp, effervescent beauty. Not too hoppy, but not too light. The perfect balance of flavor and refreshment." Come taste this delicious lager and Everybody's other canned beers, Country Boy IPA and Little Sister ISA, finally in cans just in time for summer fun!
Famed homebrewer-turned-pro Jamil Zainasheff brings his Heretic Brewing beers to Oregon for the first time ever! Bottles will be available and Jamil will be on hand to chat, and even sign bottles you bought. Jamil is bringing in Evil Twin Imperial Red Ale, Evil Cousin West Coast Imperial IPA, Gramarye Rye Session Pale Ale, Chocolate Hazelnut Porter and Shallow Grave American Porter. Jamil's name might be familiar to many craft beer fans and homebrewers. He is the host of "The Jamil Show" and "Brew Strong" on The Brewing Network. What's more, Jamil has brewed every style of beer described in the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) Style Guidelines and contributed to the guidelines revisions of 2008. He has also co-authored two books on beer and homebrewing: "Brewing Classic Styles: 80 Winning Recipes Anyone Can Brew" (with John Palmer) and "Yeast: The Practical Guide to Beer Fermentation" (with Chris White).
Join Coronado Brewing for a tasting among their bottle beers, including their new Señor Saison, a de-seeded jalapeno saison with just a hint of heat. Plus we will have their always popular Islander IPA and the Señor Saison on tap in the biercafe! Here's what the brewery has to say about their new Señor Saison: Just south of our brewery, Baja California's burgeoning spirit of craft brewing reminds us a lot of our own with Mexican brewers looking to make a name for their region. We've enjoyed keeping an eye on the exciting new beers coming out of Tijuana, Mexicali, Ensenada and Valle de Guadalupe, and celebrate the rise of craft beer south of the border with this reimagined farmhouse ale. Brewed with agave nectar and jalapeño peppers, it combines a touch of spice with fruity esters derived from Belgian yeast. Like the brews of our cross-border amigos, this cerveza takes craft to new and interesting places.
