  • Belmont Station 4500 Southeast Stark Street Portland, OR, 97215 United States (map)
Mini-Puckerfest Day 3 Featuring Ale Apothecary, Upright, Double Mountain & Firestone Walker

Sunday April 9 | 2-5 PM

We conclude our Mini-Puckerfest with a fantastic lineup!

Ale Apothecary: Paul Arney brings us Belmont La Tache, an exclusive and rare blend of his popular La Tache made with raspberries and loganberries just for our 20th anniversary! This one is a sourheads dream, and Paul says it can be laid down for up to three more years, showing different nuances with age. Available exclusively in the bottle shop, you will want to get some before this rare treat disappears. Paul hopes to be on site during the event to chat and share some beer!

Upright: Alex Ganum will be in the house 2-5 PM to present Ives. Just for Belmont Station's 20th anniversary, this is a sneak preview of a bottle Upright plans to release later this year. Alex describes Ives, which was named for American composer Charles Ives, as "a straight blend of four barrels filled in the s ummer of 2015. The base was formulated and brewed for long term maturation with plenty of raw wheat and aged hops, then slowly fermented in the casks with a mix of yeasts and bacteria selected from our favorite existing barrels at the time. The earthy nose is followed by a sharp tartness up front, then opens with a rounded grain profile mid palate, finishing on the softer side with complexities throughout."

Double Mountain: Rainier Kriek 2013 -- a rare keg indeed, this was the last year Double Mountain named what is now Tahoma Kriek after the gorgeous cherries that make the beer. Come try this beautiful kriek on draft!

Firestone Walker: Bretta Rose Berliner Weisse: A rare keg of this delightful Barrel works Berliner-style Weisse magically made it to Portland for our 20/20 Anniversary Experience!
