#1 – RYE BEER FEST
The first is the first ever Rye Beer Fest, a new event put on by Taplister, a website that helps beer geeks find their favorite beers on tap and discover new ones in Portland and beyond. This is a fundraiser for the nonprofit organization I’ve been involved with, We Love Clean Rivers, Inc. Funds raised will go towards recreation-based clean ups on Portland Metro rivers.
The Rye Beer Fest, a celebration of the revival of rye beers, will be held at the Spirit of 77 (500 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Portland, OR) during Portland Beer Week. The fest will take place on Friday June 8, from 4-10 p.m. and will feature special one-off rye beers like Hopworks’ Fight for your Rye’t to staples such as Upright Six and Oakshire Line Dry Rye. In addition to rye beers, there will be rye whiskeys paired with the rye beers that were curated for the fest. Entry to the event is free. Beers will cost $1 for a 4-ounce sample, $2.50 for a 10-ounce pour of beer and $5 for a 20-ounce pint. The price of the whiskeys is to be determined.
