Here’s your chance to taste 18 beers and ciders inspired by the trails in Portland’s amazing Forest Park. Four different bars in SE Portland will tap the trail-inspired beers: Bazi Bierbrasserie, Belmont Station, Horse Brass Pub, and Likewise.
The featured beers/ciders come directly from a collaboration with the Forest Park Conservancy, which sent experts to lead monthly hikes with brewers in Forest Park. Cumulatively, the beers create a drinkable landscape portrait of Forest Park. Proceeds from the sales of beers will benefit FPC’s work restoring Forest Park.
You can visit any of the four pubs from 12-5pm. There will be a scheduled walk between the four bars, the tour begins at Belmont Station at noon and ends at Bazi Bierbrasserie.

Belmont Station – 4500 SE Stark Blvd. Portland
Horse Brass Pub – 4534 SE Belmont St. Portland
Likewise – 3564 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland

Commemorate when the Belgians said “enough” to the Dutch. Enough with the wooden shoes. Enough tulips. And they celebrated their independence by doing what they do better than anyone – they had a beer festival.

Every July 18, the Belgians honor Saint Arnoldus with a feast in Brussels. He’s most famous for urging his congregation to “Drink Beer, Not Water” during a plague epidemic. Because beer is sterilized in production and the local water was the source of the sickness, people were saved. A true miracle!
A special taster tray featuring Huyghe brewery will be available for $12 (4 – 5 oz pours) and consists of Deliria, Delirium Argentum, Delirium Nocturnum, and Delirium Red.
Attendees will receive a complimentary St Arnoldus t-shirt and/or Delirium Tremens glass with every tray purchase (while supplies last).
