This coming Saturday, June 22nd, both Seattle and Portland will participate in a simul-release, celebrating the collaboration of Reuben's Brews and Old Town Brewing Company. The collaboration in question? That's the "Tiki Room Piña Colada Hazy IPA" of course. Originally brewed at Old Town Brewing, this the beer's description alone will no doubt inspire thoughts of Magnum P.I., Hawaii Five-0 or tiny umbrellas.
The perfect summer companion. Pacific-sized waves of ripe pineapple floods the palate delivering an ocean full of juicy and fruity character, rounded out by a welcomed toasted coconut finish with hints of vanilla and heavy cream. Paris [sic] best with questionably bold Hawaiian shirt and toe rings.

Starting at 12 pm, Portland's Old Town Brewing will host food specials, live Hawaiian music, while serving 2 Tiki-inspired cocktail beers plus Tiki Room Piña Colada Hazy IPA. Starting with live music, look for Franci Doo & Friends performing authentic Hawaiian music complimented with hula dancers. In true form, the special food of the day will be Slow-roasted Khahula Pork served in Hawaiian bread sliders. In addition to all of this, the first 40 through the door, wearing Hawaiian-style attire, will receive a free 16-ounce custom "TIkI ROOM" glass.
Described by the brewery as having notes of "fresh pineapple juice" and "coconut" this beer will pair well with spicy carnitas, fruit salad, or shrimp on the grill. Whether consumed, on draft, at the brewery or at your next backyard luau; we think that Tiki Room Piña Colada Hazy IPA will pair great for your next Summer outing.

Historic ties to Portland run deep within Old Town. Opening its doors as a family-run pizzeria in April of 1974, Old Town Pizza became a hub for like-minded people with a radical agenda. It stood as a beacon for the local community; a place to break bread and enjoy your neighbor. Over 40 years later, not much has changed in that regard. Built within the heart of the historic Old Town neighborhood, inside one of Portland's oldest standing buildings (The Merchant Hotel), Old Town Pizza & Brewing is a relic of past and present.
Adam Milne, a devoted Old Town Pizza customer, celebrated his ninth birthday at the restaurant and immediately fell in love. That experience stuck with him until 2003, when he purchased the downtown pizzeria from the Accuardi family. In 2008, Adam built a second location in the Northeast district of Portland, in his very own neighborhood, which would soon become Old Town Brewing. To compliment [sic] the rich historic build of the downtown pizzeria, the new location was constructed using reclaimed materials that circa'd the 1800-1900's, evoking an atmosphere of Northwest authenticity and sustainability. Three years later, OTB began filling its first tanks with beer. With a passion for community, it was only a matter of time before Milne discovered that same passion inside the beer community. This driving force has lead to two major expansions, a number of prominant [sic] awards, packaged beer, distribution, new jobs, and a deep obsession to make some of the world's best beer possible.
After the birth of their first child Reuben, Adam and Grace embarked on a mission to brew bloody good beer. Originally from the UK, Adam turned a passionate hobby into a family-run brewery crafting nationally and internationally recognized beers in a wide variety of styles. Since opening in 2012, Reuben's has won awards for its beers around the world including at the Great American Beer Festival, the World Beer Cup, the Washington Beer Awards, and has been a top 10 brewery at the US Beer Open three times. Find Reuben’s Brews in the Pacific Northwest and at its taproom located at 5010 14th Ave NW in Ballard, open 7 days a week.
