Beer Geek - Oregon Craft Beer Month

Jul 09, 2015 -- 9:33am

Oregon Craft Beer Month 2015 is officially underway...  the pinnacle is, of course, the Oregon Brewers Festival July 22-July 26th at Tom McCall Waterfront Park.   But more on that later!

2 beer releases tonight! Surfing Saison, a collaboration between Culmination Brewing & Yachats Brewing will be tapped tonight, 5-7 p.m., at the Culmination Brewery, 2117 NE Oregon St.  It's a chance to meet both brewers, Charlie Van Meter from Yachats and Tomas Suliter from Culmination (wish him a Happy Birthday if you go).

     

At Gigantic Brewing Company (5224 SE 26th Avenue, Portland), it's a beer release and art show featuring new work and label art from Yu Suda.  Gigantic's newest beer, Ume Umai is brewed with plum and black rice.  

This Saturday, Portland's legendary Horse Brass Pub will mark its 39th annivesary and toast the late Don Younger on his birthday.  Several one-off beers on tap along with a couple of favorites including Rogue's YSB.

Speaking of craft beer pioneers, McMenamins Brewing recently filled keg number 1,000,000!  Now that's a lot of Terminator and Hammerhead.  Local beer writer John Foyston is reportedly on a mission to find the exact location of this keg!

If you are looking for a festival this weekend, Lagerfest will be happening on Saturday at the White Owl Social Club (SE 8th and Main in Portland).  50+ craft brewed lagers from Oregon, Washington, California & around the country.

The First Edition Beer Geek airs every Thursday morning at 7:40 a.m. on First Edition with Tim Hohl & Terry Travis.  Follow me on Twitter @timhohl & use the hashtag #BeerGeek for breaking craft beer news during the week!

Beer Geek - Cheers to Belgian Beers

May 07, 2015 -- 9:38am

Thanks to Brian Butenschoen with the Oregon Brewers Guild for coming on the radio this morning to talk about the 9th annual Cheers to Belgian Beers festival. It's happening tomorrow and Saturday, May 8th and 9th in North Portland.

It's a great chance to experience the amazing flavors and styles of Belgian beers.  Unique to this festival is the fact that nearly every beer is brewed with the same Belgian yeast strain.  Equally unique is the way they make sure that nobody brews the same beer: a dart throw determines each beer's color and style!  How wonderfully Beervana!  CLICK HERE for this year's beer list...

The festival has a great venue, too: MCF Brewing Systems, formerly Metalcraft, on N. Tillamook just off Interstate (and the MAX Yellow Line).  It's like getting to drink beer in the brewery factory!  Plenty of space in the warehouse and an nice outdoor area too.

What: Cheers to Belgian Beers, Belgian-Style Beer Fest

When: Friday, May 8th from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.and Saturday, May 9th from noon to 8 p.m.

Where: MCF Craft Brewing Systems, 723 N Tillamook St., Portland – Map

How: Admission is free. There is a $15 charge for a stemmed glass and five taste tickets, which is required to taste. Additional tastes are $1.  CASH ONLY. This is a 21 and over only event.
