Alehouse Event "Mini-Puckerfest" at Belmont Station

  • 4500 Southeast Stark Street Portland, OR, 97215 United States (map)
Mini-Puckerfest Day 2 Featuring Block 15 & de Garde

Saturday April 8 | 2-5 PM

Puckerfest regulars know that Block 15 and de Garde have a mutual admiration thing going on. And far be it from us to keep these two great breweries from enjoying each other's company -- especially when they bring a beautiful array of sour and wild ales to share!

De Garde blended a barrel-aged beer for our 20th anniversary! Called The Station, it's available in very limited amounts for sale in the bottle shop -- while supplies last. For all you de Garde collectors out there, this is a must-obtain bottle! We also will be pouring some other stunning de Garde beers, and, of course, Trevor and Linsey will be hanging out with us at least from 2-5 PM talking and drinking great sours!

De Garde Draft:
  • The Pas: Wild Ale aged in Oak barrels blended from 3 years
  • Special Rouge:Sour red fermented and aged in a foudre with Montmorency cherries and raspberries.
  • Dame Rouge: Wild oak fermented and aged saison, refermented in oak with Montmorency cherries and raspberries, then blended with 20% two year old oak aged saison
