“What the hell is a Baerlic?
So there you have it! Straight from the horse’s (bear’s?) mouth! Of Barley! Who knew?
We’re proud to partner with the folks at Baerlic during our frequent Brew Cruise tours. Participants get a chance to stop at their beautiful space, located just west of the historic Ladd’s Addition neighborhood. Though they’re possibly known best for their Cavalier Classic cream ale, it’s easy to find something tasty in their ever-rotating, 10-tap selection. They’re constantly experimenting and bringing in seasonal flavors and ingredients to capture a bit of the dynamic tradition of beer. With well over 80 breweries in PDX, the Brew Cruise has no shortage of options, but Baerlic has been a favorite of ours since it opened in 2014. We were pleased when just a year later, Thrillist Magazine named it among their top breweries in Portland in 2015. Come along to visit their lovely, mellow taproom, always full of natural light and great music.
On the Brew Cruise, we take participants to two local breweries, where they can sample Portland’s flavors at their own discretion, then come back to the shop for a final microbrew pint on the house. Aside from this liquid tourism, our guides offer local and historic insight into the neighborhoods we pass through, along with trivia on the city’s brewery culture.
Next time you’re in town, book a brew cruise to find out what all the fuss is about!
