Now in its third year, Baker’s Dozen Coffee Beer & Doughnuts Fest changes things up a bit with offering two sessions. With these new changes the 3rd annual Baker’s Dozen will take place on Saturday, March 11th from 10:00am–1:00pm and 2:00–5:00pm at Culmination Brewing.
For those that have not experienced a Baker’s Dozen event, come hungry as the founder, Brian Yaeger, has searched the entire Portland metro area for the best doughnuts to be paired with the best coffee beers from Portland and beyond. Unfortunately the rumors are not true and Tugboat Brewing did not send its very rare Coffee Chernoby. Maybe we will all luck out next year.
Admission includes all 13 coffee beers, morsels of all 13 doughnuts, and a souvenir glass. Actual coffee will be provided, too, along with house-made breakfast options available for purchase. Live jazz can be enjoyed throughout the fest.
Tickets to both sessions are limited to 350 each and only available for those 21 years of age or older. However, Baker’s Dozen is a family friendly event and all ages are allowed, but the youngsters will have to plead with you to access a doughnut as these are only designated for those with a beer.
Advance tickets are $29.66 after online fees and if available, will be $30.00 at the door. At last year’s event this sold out in advance to 700 patrons. Tickets can be purchased here: Merctickets.com/go/BakersDozenPDX.
