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.
Buoy Bottles Release Party
Tuesday, March 31 -- 5-8 PM
We are thrilled to be joining our friends over at The Beermongers in helping the Buoy Brewing crew launch their first-ever bottled beers! On March 31, at both locations at the same time, Buoy will release two bottled beers: their delicious IPA here at Belmont Station and their equally tasty Czech Pilsner at The Beermongers! It's a cross-town Buoy party that could only be done in Southeast Portland. ;) Make a stop at both places to meet some of the Buoy crew and pick up some bottles to take home! Of course, we will have something yummy from Buoy on tap as well: Czech Pils and Single Hop Citra IPA!
Mazama Bottles Tasting
Wednesday, April 1 -- 5-7 PM
Swing on by the bottle shop for a tasting of several of Mazama's beers. And, of course, we will pour something really tasty from this Corvallis, Oregon-based brewery in the biercafe as well. Watch this space for more details!
Silver Moon Tasting
Thursday, April 2 -- 5-7 PM
Fresh from Bend, Silver Moon Brewing will be on site pouring a variety of their bottled beers for you to taste. In the biercafé, we will be serving Highway 97 IPA on draft.
pFriem Family Brewers Portland Bottle Premiere
Wednesday, April 8 -- 5-8 PM
We are honored to be the first place the pFriem Family Brewers will be releasing their highly anticipated bottled beers outside their Hood River brewery, (which happens on April 3). pFriem is set to launch 23 bottled varieties in 2015, including annual, seasonal, barrel-aged and limited varieties. The Classic Series will be offered in a capped, 500ml bottle, while the Select Line and Barrel-Aged beers will be packaged in corked and hooded 375 ml bottles. We are still awaiting news on which beers will be available in the bottle shop, so watch this space for updates and plan to join us, Josh, Annie and Matt for both a release party and a tasting of these long-awaited bottled offerings. Of course, it's not a party without something on draft, so rest assured we will have something very special from pFriem pouring in the biercafe as well.
