Initial Brewery and Beer List Released for 12th annual Cheers to Belgian Beers
Discount code available for a limited time for advance tickets
To ensure diversity among the beers submitted—as well as show off the creativity of Oregon’s craft brewers—the color and strength of each brewery’s beer was determined by a dart throw held earlier this year. Depending on where the dart landed on the board determined whether that brewery would brew a Belgian-style beer that was light or dark in color, with amber as the midpoint; and low or high in alcohol, with six percent being the midpoint. Breweries that hit a bullseye got to select their own color and strength.
Portland’s Cheers to Belgian Beers takes place inside The North Warehouse as well as outside in the tented parking lot. Food is available from Urban German Grill and Monk’s Deli; Brewed Oregon will be selling Oregon craft beer gear and apparel. Street parking is available, but limited. Attendees are encouraged to take public transportation — the TriMet Bus Line 35 stops one block away and the Yellow Max Line stops two blocks away — or ride their bike, with complimentary bike parking available.
