It’s too bad that the Craft Brewers Conference here in Portland only takes place over four days. Breweries, distributors and bar owners are cramming about a months worth of events into this very short timeframe so planning is of an essence for all craft beer lovers.
The latest bar to announce its CBC schedule is APEX Bar and its one that will surely delight the masses. APEX will be hosting 4 consecutive days and nights of craft beer bliss.
Day 1 – Tuesday, April 14
On the opening night of CBC, APEX will be hosting two different tappings. The first will begin at 2:00pm when 11 of the taps will be home to import legends, Shelton Brothers.
Then at 7:00pm will feature an evening with Firestone Walker and Boneyard Beer. These two breweries have a close friendship that began when Boneyard’s Tony Lawrence spent some time working at Firestone prior to launching Boneyard.
Day 2 – Wednesday, April 15
If Tuesday was not enough, Wednesday afternoon will bring a sequel to the original Gigantic & Friends that took place in 2013 as part of Gigantic Beer Week. For this go-round, Gigantic Brewing has returned the invite to Three Floyds and Solemn Oath while inviting Lost Abbey, Beau’s All Natural, Sun King and Surly to the tapping that launches at 2:00pm. Look for the new collaboration that Gigantic brewed with Three Floyds on their recent visit to Portland a few weeks ago. Not sure if this afternoon will feature an official assembly of the Order of the Black Phoenix but there are sure to be some former Rock Bottom brewers presenting their beers. Read More…
