Portland, OR - Listen up you procrastinators, if you haven't made any plans tonight, get over 1914 North Killingsworth Street!
Starting at 3 (PM) and running till midnight (AM), The Hop & Vine is celebrating their second year. Included in this celebration will be limited edition beers, killer wine, cocktails, food, and of course live entertainment.
Starting at 3PM Breakside Brewing, will be tapping a special beer, a Gose, as an homage to Hop & Vine’s achievement. Note, as previously mentioned, these guys’ beer isn’t technically anywhere else, so this is not to be missed.
Here is what The Hop & Vine had to say about tonight's party.
We have several special treats to taste starting at 3 and continuing throughout the evening. At 7:30 The Fruit of the Legion of Loom & Fenbi will be playing in the backyard. And at 10pm we will be tasting to the Old Tom's Barrel aged Apricot Ale from Upright Brewing and a Cupcake! –source, Hop & Vine’s Facebook fan page
Entertainment will be provided by Fruit of the Legion of Loom, starting at 7:30, for those looking to show up late for the entertainment.
Finally at 10pm sharp, Upright Brewing will be tapping their super rare keg of Old Tom Gin Barrel-Aged Apricot Anniversary Ale.
"This beer is aged in barrels that Yetta acquired for Upright particularly for this use. Only 1 barrel was made of this beer." -source, Ezra from the New School 'blog'

2nd Year Anniversary, The Hop & Vine

Appreciated by many beer geeks, North Portland’s the Hop and Vine does not immediately jump out as a beer destination. The vibe comes off at first as more catering to the classic wine bar aesthetic, but dig a little deeper toward the coolers in the back of the restaurant and you will see things differently. Yetta Vorobik painstakingly curates the bottle selection and tap offerings (the bar has five rotating taps), and the prices are nearly impossible to beat in Portland. Toss in excellent food and Portland’s best outdoor bier garden, and I guarantee that this small contender will rise to the top of your list of favorite bars in the city. –source, Ben Edmunds ‘contributor’ for the New School ‘blog’
