5th NW Coffee Beer Invitational

DATE: Saturday, January 27th, 2018
TIME: 12:00 – 7:00pm
LOCATION: Goose Hollow Inn, 1927 SW Jefferson St, Portland 97201

This year is the 5th NW Coffee Beer Invitational, Portland’s intimate mid-winter beer festival where talented beverage-makers are asked to get creative with locally-roasted coffee. We have a cidery and a meadery in the line-up alongside 19 outstanding breweries. To celebrate our 5th year, we asked past festival-favorite brewers Alan Taylor (PINTS and Zoiglhaus Brewing), Ben Nehrling (Fire on the Mountain Brewing) and Kevin Shaw (Buoy Brewing) to collaborate with Din Johnson (Ristretto Roasters) and make a special anniversary beer. Brewed at Buoy in Astoria, it will be released at the festival.

All beverages are in competition and a best of show winner will be announced at the festival. Nicole Kasten (Beer Connections), Sarah Pederson (Saraveza), and John Foyston (long-time Oregon beer writer) will bring their expert palates to our judging table.

The cozy tent at the Goose Hollow Inn is our venue again, so join us for unique beverages in a “stimulating” atmosphere. Great food from the Goose will be available throughout the event and we will have live music from The Michael Shay Trio (12:00-3:00pm) and festival favorites
Logger’s Daughter (3:30-6:30pm).

$20 admission includes a festival glass and 10 taster tickets.
Family friendly. Tickets at the door only.
