From noon to 10pm, $1 from each pint sold in the Tasting Room will go to Science Factory.” Make sure to get over to their tasting room today for a pint or three!
Deschutes Brewery (Bend): Tuesdays are Community Pints days at the Bend and Portland pubs, where $1 from every pint sold goes to benefit a local non-profit. Unfortunately I haven’t seen which organizations are receiving the benefits this month but still a good opportunity to head down to one of the pubs and help out with a few pints of some fresh hop beers.
Cascade Brewing (Portland) has 2015 Pumpkin Smash going on tap today: “Enjoy the creamy smoothness of the 2015 Pumpkin Smash on our Nitro Tap beginning today at opening, only at the Barrel House. Pumpkin Smash is a blend of select quad ales aged in bourbon and brandy barrels for up to 22 months with pumpkin and spices. Made with house-roasted pumpkins grown on Portland’s Sauvie Island, this Northwest sour ale features robust pumpkin and spice flavors ending with a rich, warming finish.”
Thunder Island Brewing (Cascade Locks) is hosting their Tap It Tuesday meet the brewer event tonight from 5 to 9pm: “It’s Tap It Tuesday! Come throw back a beer and meet our Head Brewer Andrew Rosette and try some of our beers from the cellar. It’s one of our last sunny patio days, so soak in the suds and sunshine while you can. Andrew joins the Thunder Island Brewing family after spending a couple years in Ireland starting up Killarney Brewing Company, before that he was at Double Mountain. Outside of the brewhouse, you’ll find him mostly outside on the trails.”
