Portland, OR – Portland Beer Week (www.pdxbeerweek.com) runs from June 9 – June 19 and Bazi Bierbrasserie (1522 SE 32nd Ave – Hawthorne District) will be hosting 3 events to celebrate domestic Belgian-inspired beers and those imports that inspired it all. Here are the details for all three events:
Tuesday, June 14 from 5 PM – 9 PM: Battle of the Belgians
It’s Flag Day so what an appropriate day to have a friendly U.S.A. versus Belgium beer competition. Four U.S.A. Belgian-inspired styles will be selected to go against four Belgians. Think wit vs wit, saison vs saison, you get the point. Last year Belgium won 3-1. This year’s Battle lineup includes:
So join us on Tuesday, June 14 between 5-9 PM. It’s your opportunity to try some of these beers side by side and let your palette decide your preferred style. Cost: $15 for 8 – 5 oz tasters.
Wednesday, June 15 from 5:30 PM – 9 PM: Mussels from Brussels
The ultimate challenge, Mussels from Brussels returns for its 4th year. Five breweries (Breakside, Fat Head’s, Lompoc, pFriem, and Upright), five secret sauces created by each brewery for dipping in one pound of mussels served with fries, and paired with their Belgian-inspired beer.
But there’s only one “Mussels from Brussels”. Will reigning 3-time champion Alex Ganum of Upright Brewing and his team prevail? You be the judge.
Seating will take place every 30 minutes between 5:30-8:30 PM. Awards ceremony will take place at 9 PM once all votes have been tallied. Limit of 10 persons per seating. Cost is $28 per person plus processing fees and pre-purchase is required via Eventbrite.
Sunday, June 19 from 11 AM – Noon: PDX Beer Week Workout
