Though Oregon Craft Brew Month officially ends Friday, the beer events keep flowing in Portland. I’ve compiled a list below of some of the best this weekend (check out On Tap for a comprehensive list).
From 11am today until closing time Sunday the Concordia Ale House (3276 NE Killingsworth) is hosting the 2009 Concordia Cup.
12 Imperial IPA’s will battle it out for best Imperial IPA in Oregon. The Winning brewer will also “Captain” Oregon’s BEER BRAWL III team to compete against Washington and California.
$12.00 entitles you to a taster tray and the voting privilege.
The 15th annual Bones and Brews fest takes place both Saturday (11am-9pm) and Sunday (11am-7pm) up on NW 15th between Everett and Glisan. The event is a benefit for the Oregon Zoo. Over 20 beers will be available to accompany the BBQ from various vendors, a BBQ contest, and the Kobe Bleu Ball eating contest! There’s also a charity dog wash and live music. Kids and dogs are welcome.
On Saturday head to Bailey’s Taproom (213 SW Broadway) for their Two Year Anniversary Barrel Aged Beer Festival, aka AnniBrew 2. A tasting glass and three tickets for samples will set you back $10. The beer list is truly astonishing.
