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.

Green Flash Treasure Chest 2014 Breast Cancer Fundraiser
Come out to Belmont Station and help us #raiseaglass2014 with Treasure Chest 2014! We will be pouring Green Flash Plum Little Freak along with at least one other Green Flash offering to help raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. And from 5-8 PM, buy a Green Flash beer and get a free Treasure Chest pint glass to take home (while supplies last). There will also be some other fun giveaways! A portion of our proceeds will go toward Green Flash's Treasure Chest fundraiser.
What is Treasure Chest? Established in 2011 by Green Flash Co-Founder and breast cancer survivor Lisa Hinkley, Treasure Chest is the brewery’s annual charity program. Treasure Chest 2014 includes a limited release beer and regional event program that allows distributors, retailers, and customers to help raise money for breast cancer charities.

Beers Made By Walking Pub Crawl/Fundraiser
Belmont Station has been thrilled to be a part of the Beers Made By Walking events since inception, so when organizer Eric Steen approached us about doing it again, of course we said yes!
Eric wanted to make it a bigger event this year, with more breweries involved, so we threw out the idea of making the Beers Made By Walking event an actual walking event! So this year, our friends at The Cheese Bar and The Horse Brass Pub will be joining us in tapping these beers inspired by ingredients seen as brewers took hikes around their homes and breweries.
Participants are encouraged to make the urban hike from one location to the other to enjoy all the beers that will be on tap. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Forest Park Conservancy, which inspired eight of the beers during a summer series of public hikes with brewers led by the Conservancy. The remaining beers come from state-wide breweries that have participated in other Oregon-based hikes. Examples of the brews that will be available include: a beer made with yeast and bacteria harvested in an old growth area of Forest Park, another will be brewed with Salal Berry, a berry that is seen in the late summer on some trails.
Drinkers can visit any of the three pubs in any order from 12-5 p.m. For those interested in a scheduled walk between venues, our friends at Oregon Walks have organized a walking tour as part of their Walktober program. The tour begins at Belmont Station at noon, and you can sign up for it here.

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.
