Beer and Cider List (so far):

Block 15 - Cuvee Rouge 2013
Flanders inspired red ale matured in oak brandy barrels. Open fermented with our special blend of brewer’s yeast, two brettanomyces, and acid producing bacteria. A blend of five barrels matured 15 & 25 months in our wild cellar. Wonderfully complex malt body, aroma, and flavor with a balanced sour finish.

Burnside Brewing - Carribean Chutney
A special alternate version of Burnside's medal winning Sweet Heat. This one with Carribean spices, Lime, Cilantro and Yellow and Red Peppers in addition to Sweet Heat's Apricots and Scotch Bonnet chili's.

The Commons - Dark Czar
An Imperial Stout and Baltic Porter blend with Stumptown Guatemala Finca el Injerto coffee and vanilla beans.

Lompoc - Mon Cheri
This Belgian style golden ale was brewed with the Ardennes yeast strain giving off a mild fruitiness and finishing with a coriander spiciness. 5.5% ABV

Ninkasi Brewing/Devil's Backbone - The Devil Went Down To Oregon
Imperial Dark Rye collaboration beer with Virginia's acclaimed Devil's Backbone Brewery. 7.2% ABV.

Reverend Nat's - Applie Pie
Apple pie is a blend of mixed fermentation cider with Mexican piloncillo and bourbon barrel-aged apple wine spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Heavy fruit notes from the cider and subtle spice from the apple wine combine to create a unique wintery, pie-like drinking experience. 8.0% ABV

Oakshire Brewing - Hellshire IV
The breweries fourth entry into the Hellshire series is a blend of 3 different beers matured in bourbon and brandy barrels. Oakshire's Very Ill Tempered Gnome was the base beer and after aging and blending the final product is akin to an Old Ale or Barleywine. 10.3% ABV

Upright Brewing - Spollen Angel
A Belgian-style tripel – a fitting style to pay tribute to one of our favorite brewers, Chris Spollen. The crew here met him during his days at Amnesia up the street from us, but he’s played a big part in making Oregon beer great for much longer. More important than his contributions to the brewing community is Chris’ special personality that makes him a true blast to crush a couple beers with. The Spollen Angel is one we think he’d enjoy sharing – with a big spicy nose and well integrated layers of malt, hops, and yeast notes. 9.4%

Barley Browns: TBA

Hopworks: TBA

This should be a great event and opportunity to support a good cause with a chance to try some rare and exclusive beers.
