Beyond simply selling beer, we want to educate our customers and expose them 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 beers, meads and ciders. Unless otherwise noted, all events listed as "tastings" are free and open to everyone over 21 years of age.

Halloween Pre-Funk Party
Get your costume together for a test-drive at Belmont Station, as we turn this place out for a night of special draught beer, awesome best-costume prizes (glassware packages, gift certificates, etc.), and we'll ALL be taking over the patio to shake our bones as DJ Murphy spins some wax to keep it movin'... It's gonna be a blast, it's likely gonna get weird, it's not gonna be one to miss.
Here's a partial list of the beer treats we will be pouring that night:

Coast to Coast Toast 4
Vanberg & DeWulf, who founded the Coast-to-Coast Toast three years ago, was the first company to specialize in importing Belgian beers to the US. The principals of Vanberg & DeWulf (Don Feinberg & Wendy Littlefield) have been tireless champions for Belgian beer and now "honorary Belgians" all from independent family run producers. Although Wendy and Don are now retired from the craft beer industry, we want to honor their legacy by continuing to celebrate the influence they and the beers they've introduced to the market have had on the American craft beer scene. Join us this year in celebrating their iconic work and bidding them farewell. To celebrate this big send-off, we will be pouring Dupont Triomfbier Vooruit, a smoked saison made with the addition of smoked crystal malt, lending citrus flavors of sweet orange peel and grapefruit, balanced with a hint of campfire smoke. Triomfbier was brewed only once before in celebration of the 100 year anniversary of the Vooruit art center in Ghent, so we are very excited to be able to pour this in the Biercafé!
