Come on out to the ‘Mongers and raise a glass to John. They will be featuring some of the man’s favorite classic brews on tap as well as some new faves and a collaborative fresh hop brew made with John and The BeerMongers atPortland U-Brew. 5pm-midnight (look for the man of the hour around 5pm)

“Killer Cologne” is brewed at Vancouver, Washington’s Heathen Brewing with lead brewer Rodney Stryker teaming up with Old Town’s Bolt Minister. Minister recently won awards at last year’s Great American Beer Festival (gold medal for best fresh hop beer) and at 2014 World Beer Cup (silver medal for Kolsch-style beer). Upstart Heathen Brewing is making waves with their clean hoppy West Coast pales and IPAs. The “Killer Kologne” is a hybrid style dubbed a “Cascadian Kolsch-style ale” or “IPK (India Pale Kolsch).” This means it is a hopped up rendition of the easy drinking German-style lager-like ale. 6% ABV, 66.6 IBU. Look for this beer on tap at events throughout KillerBeerWeek!
