CBC Events: Belmont Station’s killer events all week

All during the week of the Craft Brewers Conference, Belmont Station has got a great lineup of events taking place—some days they even have two back-to-back events. Belmont Station is one of Portland’s very best¬†bottleshops and beer bars (as well as a favorite of mine) and they are pulling out all the stops for CBC week. Here’s the lineup: Monday, April 13 Victory Meet the Brewer & Deep Cocoa Bottle Release, 5 to 7pm: Meet … Continue reading →

CBC Events: Lompoc Brewing’s week-long medley

On Wednesday, the 15th, starting at 6pm the Central Oregon Brewers Guild is holding … Continue reading →

Deschutes Brewery’s “Beer Machines” at CBC

One of the more unique events taking place during next week’s Craft Brewers Conference is Deschutes Brewery’s and Columbia Distributing’s official CBC event Beer Machines:¬†A Steampunk Ode To The Craft Revolution. (It’s listed as the official CBC nightly event for Thursday, April 16.)
