Free Tastings & Other Events

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.

Monday June 27 | 5-7 PM

Merchant du Vin has a great catalog of lovely and impressive imports, and their rep, Tom Bowers, always delightfully shares not only samples of some of these amazing Belgians, Brits and more, but he is so knowledgeable, you will feel like you should pay him tuition just for being able to taste these beers! A full list of what he plans to pour will be posted here as soon as we can get it, so keep an eye on this spot.
