Lompoc Brewing to release Portland Parkways Premium Pilsner in celebration of Portland Sunday Parkways program
PORTLAND, Ore. (April 2, 2018) – Lompoc Brewing is proud to announce the upcoming release of Portland Parkways Premium Pilsner in six-packs of 12-ounce cans. The event will take place at Lompoc Sidebar from 4pm to close on Thursday, May 10. Lompoc’s Portland Parkways Premium Pilsner is an unofficial tie-in to the City of Portland’s monthly Portland Sunday Parkways, a series of events that offers traffic-free routes encouraging the community to explore Portland’s city streets and neighborhoods; the 2018 season will kick off with its first event on May 20. Lompoc Brewing will be donating money to the Sunday Parkways program from every case of Portland Parkways Pilsner sold.
A golden straw colored German style pilsner, Lompoc’s Portland Parkways Pilsner is clean and crisp, with a bready maltiness that is balanced by the spiciness of Saaz hops. It is a session beer, coming in at 5% ABV, and an ideal beer to sip during the summer months.
“Lompoc Oregon is knitted from the fabric of our local community, and we can’t think of a better way to support and celebrate our citizens,” explained Lompoc owner Jerry Fechter. “We’re especially excited to host Lompoc beer gardens offering Portland Parkways Pilsner throughout the Portland Sunday Parkways events; look for us along the routes!”
The can’s artwork, which features a colorful and whimsical scene of bicyclists traveling through a Portland neighborhood, was inspired by the brewery’s “Lompoc Oregon” campaign, which emphasizes the idea that Lompoc, Oregon is a state of mind. You won’t find Lompoc, Oregon on any map, but you can find it wherever you go; if you’re here, then you’re already there.
With its brewery and two of its pubs located along the busy North Williams bicycle corridor, Lompoc Brewing has always been a proponent of Portland’s bicycle culture. It was an early adopter of the on-street bicycle parking corral, positioned at its Fifth Quadrant location. Meanwhile, across the street is an 18-rack hub with bikes for Portland’s BIKETOWN bike sharing program. Lompoc Tavern in Northwest Portland is a featured destination on the popular BrewCycle tour.
The City of Portland Sunday Parkways promotes healthy active living through a series of free events opening the city’s largest public space – its streets – to walk, bike, roll, and discover active transportation while fostering civic pride, stimulating economic development, and represents the community, business, and government investments in Portland’s vitality, livability, and diversity. A series of five traffic-free events take place in Portland’s beautiful neighborhoods one Sunday a month May through September.
The Portland Parkways Pilsner six-pack release will take place at the same time as Lompoc releases its Enter the Dank IPA in six packs; the May 10 release party will offer a special $6 for a six-pack of both beers. Lompoc Sidebar is located at 3901 N Williams Ave. For more information, visit LompocBrewing.com and follow @LompocBeer, #ParkwaysPilsner
