Alehouse Event "Mini-Puckerfest Kickoff" at Belmont Station

  • Belmont Station 4500 Southeast Stark Street Portland, OR, 97215 United States (map)

Mini-Puckerfest Kickoff with Flat Tail & Cascade!

Friday April 7 | 5-8 PM

Our summertime sour and wild beer celebration is coming around for a shorter stay April 7-9 as part of our 20/20 Experience -- 20 days of events to celebrate 20 years of Belmont Station! (Don't worry, our regular Puckerfest will be here as usual in July, too!)

If you don't fancy sours, there will definitely be some other tasty Belmont Station exclusive beers on tap to enjoy! But if sours and wild ales are your thing, this will be the place to be!

To help kick things off, our friends at Flat Tail Brewing have created a very special edition of their DAM Wild series: Belmont Station 20th Anniversary Sour Ale, made with 20 special ingredients to honor our 20 years in business (stuff like raspberries, cranberries, lemongrass, pink peppercorns and more). We will be pouring this lovely beer in the taproom and we will have special commemorative bottles available for sale in the bottle shop! Brewmaster Dave Marliave will be around 5-8 PMfor what we expect will be some Flat Tail shenanigans -- and to hand out some Flat Tail swag.

Plus, it's another edition of the Battle of the Belmont Blends! Our pals at Cascade Brewingonce again invited the entire Belmont staff to join them for a pair of special blending sessions. We split up into two groups and each blended what they think is the winning blend. But YOU get to vote on your favorite. The Cascade crew will be on hand to help us out, and a little after 8 PM, the votes will be tallied and the winning blend will be announced for bragging rights among the Belmont Staff -- at least until the next round!

Other Cascade beers on tap: 

  • Jamberree: sour wheat ale aged in an oak wine barrel with 100 pounds of blackcap raspberries for 12 months, then blended with bourbon barrel aged sour quad, leaving the blackcap unadulterated in its richest, most jammy expression. 8.1% ABV
  • Pits-Burgh Punch: A blend of sour blond and spiced red ales aged for up to three years in oak wine and bourbon barrels with cherry pits, apricot noyaux, and vanilla beans, adding a complex cherry, almond, and floral note to the blond beer component of this blend.6.8% ABV.

ATM on site, but plan to bring cash! Credit cards welcome at all times in the bottle shop.
