CBC Events: Brits & Yanks at Saraveza

Among the many, many events taking place next week during the Craft Brewers Conference is one taking place at Saraveza on Wednesday the 15th starting at 7pm: Brits & Yanks, A Toast to Tradition. (Saraveza’s link is here.) Unfortunately this one is taking place concurrent with the Central Oregon Brews & Beats so I doubt I’ll be able to attend, but this frankly looks fantastic:

Join us for a tribute to Samuel Smith featuring IPAs, Pale Ales, ESBs, Porters & Stouts all directly or indirectly influenced by Samuel Smith’s classic brews that include: India Ale, Oatmeal Stout, Organic Pale Ale, Imperial Stout & Taddy Porter.

Here are a few of the brewers & breweries who will be bringing us their finest to raise a glass in tribute:

  • Anderson Valley – Wild Turkey Bourbon BBL-Aged Oatmeal Stout – Head Brewer: Fal Allen
  • Breakside – Bergamot Special Bitter – Brewer: Nao Ohdera
  • Brooklyn- Wild Horse Porter & Some Surprises – Head Brewer: Garrett Oliver
  • Ecliptic – Pegasus ESB – Founder/Head Brewer: John Harris
  • Fremont – Dark Star Imperial Oatmeal Stout – Director of Brewing Operations: Matt Lincoln
  • Ninkasi – Vanilla Oatis Oatmeal Stout – Founder/Brewer: Jamie Floyd
  • Pelican – Silver Spot English Style IPA – Head Brewer: Darron Welch
  • Rogue – Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout – Brewer: John Maier
  • Sierra Nevada – Pale Ale – Brewery Technical Director Danny Khan

Samuel Smith’s will be bringing bottles of all the favorites including:

  • Organic Pale Ale
  • Oatmeal Stout
  • Nut Brown Ale
  • Imperial Stout
  • Taddy Porter
  • India Ale

Try the originals alongside their unique US counterparts. A line up and all-star cast like this will be one for the history books.

If I can be there, even for a bit, I will be. (No entry fee that I’m aware of.)
