Portland, OR – It’s fast becoming the first complete week in June and already the stress of getting that special father something is climbing. Instead of getting them a fancy tie, a new set of shaving razors or any other possible ‘gift’ why not instead have a beer with him. Starting on the 19th you can have a pint with your ‘Pa while supporting a worthy cause or just to ring in another year of Summer.
“Lompoc will be pouring its Organic Flower of the Gods and Organic Bald Guy Brown as a preview to the North American Organic Brewers Festival. For every pint sold of those two beers, we will donate a portion of the proceeds to Locks of Love. There will also be a special BBQ menu and folks can sign up for Bald Guy Brigade memberships, which get you a T shirt and 10% off food and drink for a year - such a deal! Amaze your friends and take your picture in the giant Jerry Fechter cutout.” –source, Lompoc Brewery

NAOBF Beer Preview / Locks of Love Fund Raiser, Lompoc Brewing’s Fifth Quadrant Pub
3901 North Williams Portland, OR
If the sight of bald people and the opportunity to sample two beers before NAOBF isn’t your thing, then we suggest an afternoon at the Raccoon Lodge.
“Raise your pint to mark the first day of summer at the Raccoon Lodge & Brew Pub's annual Summer Solstice Celebration. The family friendly, all ages event features an afternoon of live music, including Cascade Brewmaster Ron Gansberg's bluegrass-folk band, Black Lodge, and The Redeemed, a Portland-based Cascade Country band with a hint of rockabilly and swing. No cover charge. There will be delicious bbq meats roasted over an applewood fire as well as other food for purchase.
Most exciting will be the debut of "The Four Goses of the Apuckerlypse!" This is a one-time opportunity to try and compare all four of Cascade Brewing's Goses that have been stored away specifically for this party. We'll be pouring last fall's, winter's, this spring's and debuting this year's summer gose: a classic style gose, this fairly light wheat beer was brewed with coriander and salt and soured slightly. There will also be a full barrel of our Summer Solstice IPA based on brewer Jon Berry's recipe and made with Summit and Chinook hops. The ceremonial rolling out of this barrel on a handcarved wooden cart will take place at 5 pm. Rumor has it there may also be an appearance of The Vine!” –source, Cascade Brewing
