Killer Beers of Bend (in Portland)

The Brewpublic blog is turning two this month, and they’re celebrating by holding “KillerBeerWeek” later this month—and it starts out with Killer Beers of Bend at The Beermongers bottle shop and micro bar on October 20th. Starting at 5pm, you’ll be able to taste some of the fine beers of Bend that you may not otherwise see elsewhere—the full list was forwarded by Angelo, and it’s after the jump.

And, big congrats all around to Brewpublic, one of the best beer blogs around, done right and on point as always.
