Living in Portland, you probably don’t need to be reminded that we are awash in good beer. But while we might share a pint with friends or argue over our favorite brews, it is easy to overlook how the drink gets to our glass. Beer is one of the oldest artisan foods (arguably the oldest) and its production is a story of community and agriculture. Luckily, we have some great resources for learning about this craft; Local brewmaster Christian Ettinger, of Hopworks Urban Brewery, nods to this heritage as he looks to the future with his holistic, sustainable business model and frankly delicious beers.
Join Slow Food Portland on Tuesday, October 28 for an evening beer tasting and brewery tour with the Hopworks team, to learn about their commitment to making great beer in a green-conscious manner. And if you haven’t yet tried Hopworks’ Survival Stout (brewed from a combination of seven grains - talk about old school!), that beer is reason enough to trust what Ettinger has to say.
When: Tuesday, October 28th, 6:30 - 8:30
Where: Hopworks Urban Brewery, 2944 SE Powell Blvd
This event will be limited to the first 60 people who sign up.
