On Thursday, November 20th from 7-10 PM come and celebrate everything Portland has to offer in the way of web series – to name a few, Mad House, The Screenprinters, The Haunting of Sunshine Girl Network, Fart Knocker Boner Squad – and more!
Feel good and donate canned goods or cash for the Oregon Food Bank and gain a swag bag from Mad House, including coupons for local businesses, party worthy glow sticks, and a raffle ticket for prizes to be raffled off throughout the eve
ning. SO BRING CANNED GOODS right in time for Thanksgiving to support those in need locally in Portland.
This is a release party and NOT A SCREENING, so it will be completely informal (sorta like web series) and radstastic. We’ll show an episode of each web series at some random point throughout the evening on Bazi’s amazing 114″ HDTV.
Mad House will have its internet debut on November 28th on The Haunting of Sunshine Girl Network, and this is a way to see the first couple episodes a week before the big release.
Raise a glass at Bazi on Thursday, November 13 from 5-10 PM with other Belgian beer aficionados around the globe as we join the 4th Annual National Coast to Coast Toast celebration. More than 700 bars and restaurants participated in last year’s events.
Leading to the official toast at 8 PM, Bazi will be celebrating with a special 4-Taster Beer Tray featuring some of the top beers in the Vanberg & Dewulf portfolio. This year we will be highlighting Brasserie Dubuisson Scaldis, Scaldis Noel, Scaldis Prestige de Nuits, and Scaldis Cuvee des Troll. The taster tray will be available for $15 and each beer consists of 5 oz pours.
About the beers:
Scaldis Prestige de Nuits 2009: 13% ABV, cask-conditioned strong ale aged in Cotes de Nuits burgundy barrels is the best marriage of beer and wood. A perfect 100 on RateBeer and BeerAdvocate four years running from a brewery that’s been in operation longer than Belgium has been a country. Only night that this beer will be available by the glass. Retails for $68 a bottle.
Scaldis Noel: 12% ABV, warm and inviting without being too sweet, flavors of malt, caramel and nuts with a touch of dry spice on the finish.
Scaldis Ultra Strong Ale: 12% ABV, chewy but nutty maltiness and a superb balance of clean, dry aromatic hoppiness in the finish. Scaldis has earned a Gold Medal at the World Beer Championship.
Scaldis Cuvee des Trolls: 7% ABV, blonde Belgian flavored flavored with orange peel, aromas of apple custard tart, crisp dry medium-to-full body. Scaldis has earned a Silver Medal at the World Beer Championship.
All Souls Day Beer Festival
On November 1st from 4-10 PM, Bazi and Imperial Bottleshop (3090 SE Division St) are joining forces to co-host a new annual autumn beer event, Día De Los Muertos Festival De Cervezas (All Souls Day Beer Festival).
The Día De Los Muertos Festival De Cervezas will take place concurrently at both locations offering festival goers the opportunity to walk less than half mile between the two and experience an eclectic mix of death-themed beers, beers named after the dead, and Mexican-influenced beers that pay homage to the country of the holiday’s origin. While close in proximity, the two bars are far apart in their approach to beer. Bazi features Belgian-inspired beers from near and far, and Imperial focuses on local American craft beer.
For $10, attendees will get a commemorative glass goblet and two drinks tickets, each good for a 5 oz pour. Additional drink tickets will be offered for $2 each, and every drink ticket used will automatically get entered into hourly raffles for exciting prizes. Pre-purchase is encouraged and check-in can take place at either location. Visit Eventbrite to purchase tickets.

Artisinal Imports bring you Kwaktoberfest during the entire month of October and a special celebration on Friday, October 31st from 5-10 PM featuring a tasting tray with Bosteels Brewery three famous beers: Kwak, Tripel Karmeliet and DeuS. 5 oz samples of each for only $15 including a souvenir Kwak glass while supplies last. This is your opportunity to try the infamous DeuS, available only in 750 ml Dom Perignon bottles.
How to WIN Kwak swag:
- Every time you order a Kwak beverage, you will be able to choose from various prizes – Kwak buttons, Bosteel Brewery t-shirts, etc.
- Kwak away during every Ducks game! Order the Quattro for only $27 during every Ducks game in October (it’s like getting a free Kwak beverage) plus you’ll get to take a single Kwak glass home (while supplies last).
- Attend our Kwaktoberfest celebration on Friday, October 31st during our final party. Raffles will take place every half hour starting at 6:00 PM. Order the tasting tray for only $15 and take a Kwak glass home plus a big chance to win a Quattro.
About the beers for the tasting event on October 31st:
- Deus undergoes a lengthy, costly maturation in the Champagne caves of France. The elegant and labor-intensive “methode Champenoise” produces the best sparkling beverages in the world. DeuS has characteristics of both sparkling wine (fine, velvety carbonation) and specialty beer (rich maltiness) but also exhibits a fragrant, herbal and spicy character quite unique and special. Flavors of anise, mint, malt, lavender, and a barely perceptible hoppiness make DeuS a very sophisticated treat. Only available in 750 ml bottles.
- Kwak is rich amber in color with a slightly sweet, generously malty character. Hops are subdued, but present a well-considered balance with the juicy ripeness of grain and a fruity, meringue softness.
- Brewed with oats, barley and wheat, Tripel Karmeliet has soft, full, rich grain character with hints of banana, vanilla, and a slight, pleasing bubble-gum aroma. A restrained hop bitterness offers perfect balance and a gentle counterpart to its substantial maltiness. World’s Best Ale 2008.
No tricks here, just treats and lots of them!!!! So give the Kwak a try, after all, the glass is half the fun!

Brewpublic is celebrating six years of bringing their readers information about craft beer in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. With this anniversary comes their annual KillerBeerWeek and the first Killer Belgian Fest hosted by Bazi on Wednesday, October 22nd from 5 PM – 10 PM.
Brewpublic and Bazi have round up some of Oregon’s best and some favorite West Coast offerings on this occasion. Look for rare treats and a few old favorites including:
10 Barrel Black Currant Crush: 4.5% ABV, Berliner Weiss, hazy orange color, tart flavor, tannic black currant note, surprisingly drinkable and refreshing.
13 Virtues Jean-Claude Van Damn: 10.5% ABV, strong dark aged in pinot noir barrels for three months. Notes of dark fruits including raisins, plums, figs, and dates with the barrels adding hints of cherry, vanilla, and oak.
Ambacht Belgian Brown: 8% ABV, dubbel style, dark brown, nice size tan head, tropical esters, caramel and toffee notes, medium-light bodied.
Agrarian Ales Porch Song Saison: 7.2% ABV, burnt orange, super bright fruity flavors with solid autumn malt backbone and a nice tart finish.
Breakside Apollo Dionysus: 9.7% ABV, This is the barrel-aged version of our collaboration beer with Widmer Brothers Brewing, Saison a Fleurs. The base saison is made with jasmine, chrysanthemum, and Szechuan peppercorn. The beer was then aged for five months in Old Tom Gin barrels from Ransom Spirits. The result is a botanical, tart, and very dry beer that is as reminiscent of a summer cocktail as much as a heavy hitting barrel-aged beer.
The Commons Flemish Kiss: 6.5% ABV, pale ale, slightly dry, fruity beer with a hint of floral Brett character. Silver Medal GABF!
Double Mountain Morder Weizen: 7% ABV, fresh hop wheat beer, standard weizen (with a little more malt) and gets a healthy dose of fresh Magnums (around 150lbs.) and ferments on our Kolsch yeast. Ripe cantaloupe, spicy grass, and dank papaya dominate the nose.
Fort George Magnifera Indica Belga: 7.3% ABV, mango fruit beer, strong spicy notes with earth tones that leave a peppery finish.
Ecliptic Facula Tripel Wit: 7.9% ABV, Facula are the bright regions of the sun that surround sunspots. The beer is golden in color and reminds us of our Sun. The base beer is brewed in the Belgian Tripel style and refers to the amount of malt needed to make the beer. This smooth, easy drinking beer has notes of honey, while the yeast adds a slight spiciness to the beer and compliments the lower hopping rate. Coriander and Orange peel were added in the kettle to make this hybrid style.
Gigantic Le Petit Batard: 4.3% ABV, table saison expressing the floral, spicy and fruity notes of the yeast.
Hopworks Apple Saison: 5.8% ABV, a traditional Belgian Golden Ale with juice from Organic Washington and Oregon apples. Delicate floral aromas layer over tart flavors of freshly picked Honeycrisp and Gala apples. A subtle wheat malt body gives way to a refreshing, effervescent finish. Crisp and delicious as a Fall day in the orchard.
Logsdon Spring Break Saison: 6.5% ABV, this is the original Logsdon beer that was blended to create the Solera dark saison bretta collaboration.
Lompoc Forbidden Fruit Saison: 5.9% ABV, saison brewed with 64 lbs of black currant by Bazi’s owner for their anniversary, ruby golden color, white lasting head, fruity aroma and taste, tart finish.
Migration Brewing Fletch’s Freshest Belgian Pale Ale: 5.6% ABV, fresh Meridian hops, strong lemon aromas and flavors with some tropical fruit notes.
Oakshire Daft Punkin: 5.7% ABV, autumn farmhouse ale, hazy golden color, big aroma of ripe fruit intertwined with subtle fall spices. Light bodied, crisp spiciness and a mild heat from the peppers.
pFriem Fresh Hop Belgian Blonde: 6% ABV, brewed with a large quantity of Fresh Equinox Hops from Yakima, Washington. Dank, peach, fresh pine aromas lift from the glass. It gives flavors of lime, strawberry, and green pepper. It finishes zesty and fresh.
Stone Stochasticity Quadrotriticale: 9.3% ABV, Belgian-style quadrupel brewed with a special grain called triticale.
Upright Todo Modo: 3.8% ABV, using Saison Dupont’s yeast strain, session-style hoppy saison, nice fruity contrast, bit of tartness on back-end.
