On Thursday February 16, 2012, APEX pub (1216 SE Division St., Portland, Oregon) will host a special collaboration event with start-up brewery Gigantic. The soon to open Southeast Portland brewery headed by Ben Love (former Hopworks brewmaster) and Van Havig (former Rock Bottom Portland brewmaster) has teamed up with four of Oregon’s best breweries to produce four distinctly unique and flavorsome beers. Collaborating brewers include Oakshire Brewing‘s (Eugene) Matt Van Wyk, Breakside Brewery‘s (Portland) Ben Edmunds, Pelican Brewery‘s (Pacific City) Daniel Pollard, and Laurelwood Brewery‘s (Portland) Vasilios Gletsos.
Here’s the full details from Ben at Gigantic:
When: Thursday Feb 16, 5-9pm
Where: Apex – 1216 SE Division St, PDX, OR 97202
The Gigantic lads, Ben Love and Van Havig, have not only been busy building the Gigantic Brewery & Tasting Room at SE 26th & Steele in Portland, but they’ve also brewed up a series of collabo (aka. collaboration) beers with their brewer friends around Oregon. This is your chance to try all the collabo beers in one place and meet the brewers. Join Ben and Van – along with all the other collabo brewers (Ben Edmunds, Vasilli Gletsos, Daniel Pollard, and Matt Van Wyk) – for a night of drinking and celebration! The beers will be on tap at the Apex. Remember to bring your dollar dollar bills y’all (Apex is cash only).
