I will start with Bailey's Belgianfest. I am ashamed to admit that this will be my first beer event at Bailey's. It seems every time they have an event I am either working, out of town, or my wife is giving birth to our second child. Stupid childbirth, always getting in the way of a good beer event. Anyway, I am excited about the lineup of Oregon brewers bringing Belgian inspired beers to this event. A few of the beers that I am looking forward to from the list include those from Astoria, Barley Brown's, Cascade, Beetje, Deschutes, Ft. George, Laurelwood, and Upright.
Bailey's Taproom. Saturday, November 13th. Admission from 4-11pm. Beer served until Midnight. $15 gets you a very nice tulip glass & 5 tokens. Pour = 1 token = $1.
Brewing Up Cocktails 2 sees the return of creative beer cocktails from the minds of Ezra Johnson-Greenough (The New School Beer Blog), mixologist Jacob Grier, and Hop & Vine owner Yetta Vorobik. The first installment during Oregon Craft Beer Month was a great success. The drinks this time around look quite interesting and there is quite a buzz building, especially for the Hot Scotchy. See Ezra's blog for an in depth description of what went into each cocktail as he has profiled a different cocktail each day this week.
Hop & Vine. Saturday, November 13th 6-10 pm. Cocktails individually priced.
