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.
Our week long celebration of funky and sour beers returns for its ninth year! We're still trying to wrangle brewers and get them to commit to kegs, so check back for more info soon. Here's what we've got lined up so far:
We're kicking off the week by hosting Breakside as they release their incredibly popular Passion Fruit Sour in bottles. We'll have folks from the brewery on hand to chat, and we'll be pouring several tasty treats:
This is guaranteed to be the largest collection of Cascade sours ever assembled outside the Barrel House. They're busy digging through their cellar stash to find some tasty treats, so check back soon for the line-up!
We're bringing back our friends from the gorge for another night of fruit filled fun. This year we'll be helping them launch bottles of Peche Mode, their new Peach-infused sour ale. We'll also have it on tap alongside Devil's Kriek and Tahoma Kriek, their two delicious sour cherry ales. Who knows, they may have other surprises as well!
As much as we love having the brewers and owners on hand for Puckerfest, it can be tough to drag them away from their breweries. This is even more difficult when their breweries are located hundreds of miles away. We'll be featuring some of our favorite out of state breweries including Crooked Stave (CO), Russian River (CA), Firestone Walker (CA), New Belgium (CO), and more! We've been stockpiling some of these kegs for years, so even though the brewers won't be on hand you'll still want to come see what we pull out of the cellar.
After last year's incredibly successful team night it was only natural to bring these two back again. We'll be pouring several different beers from both breweries, and we may have a few special bottles available that day as well!
Join Alex and his crew as they bust out some delicious funky offerings. We'll be pouring Small World Saison, Saison du Blodget, Fantasia, a new, unnamed "Fantasia-esque" brew with rainier cherries, and maybe more!
We've got a few fun surprise beers in store for the last night, and space permitting we'll throw on a few popular leftovers from earlier in the week.
