Four Double Mountain Bottles

Press Release:

- Returnable Half-Liter Bottles Hit the Shelves of Portland Bottleshops Oct 15 -
- Kickoff Release Party at Belmont Station 10/15 5-8pm -
The wait is over! After more than five years in the works, Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom of Hood River, Oregon, is shipping its first truckloads of bottles to the Portland market. The brewery’s core brands – Kölsch, Vaporizer, India Red Ale (IRA) and Hop Lava – will be on shelves and available for purchase on October 15 at fine bottleshops in the metro area.
The beers, which until now have only been available in bottles at the brewery’s Taproom in Hood River, come in unique half-liter bottles and will retail single-serve for approximately $3.99 per bottle. The bottles, imported from Germany, are made of thick-walled glass, allowing them to be cleaned and reused many times. Retailers who sell Double Mountain bottles will be segregating returned bottles for a return trip to the brewery. Visit www.DMReturns.com to learn more about this green program and to find participating retailers.
The folks from Double Mountain will be all over Portland for a few weeks, pouring samples and meeting fans at various bottleshops.

In addition to bottle samplings and keychain giveaways, the Café side of the Station will be pouring some tasty DM draft selections including KillerGreen Fresh Hop IPA, Killer Red Fresh Hop IRA, and Ferocious Five Bourbon-Barrel Brown Ale.
“Belmont Station was one of Double Mountain’s very first draft accounts in Portland, delivered out of the back of my car,” according to DM co-owner Charlie Devereux. “It seems fitting that we kick off the bottles in style at their shop.”

Fire & Brimstone Smoke and Chili Beer Fest @ Saraveza/The Hop & Vine

Saraveza and The Hop & Vine Present Fire & Brimstone

 

Fire & Brimstone, an annual celebration of chili and smoke beers, is returning to Portland for a second go, this time in two locations. North Portland’s The Hop & Vine will be joined by street-mate Saraveza in presenting the event the weekend of September 15th and 16th. Tasting sessions will be Saturday 12-7pm and Sunday 12-5pm.

Both locations will offer special food pairings, the lion’s share of which will take place at Saraveza. Their “Smokin’ Bamberg Onion” plate will be a $20 all-encompassing meal, complete with a peach-chili dessert and tasters of all five smoke/chili beers they’ll be pouring. The Hop & Vine’s pairing will bring the magic of the chili to the plate via offerings of a coconut & garden chile-steamed plate of clams, prawns and scallops as well as a pair of harissa-rubbed lamb ribs and a smoked chile ice cream.

Local favorites like Burnside’s Sweet Heat and Breakside’s Smokey Porter will join offerings from national stars like Dogfish Head and Stone, who will be, in turn, be joining international heavy hitters like Mikkeller and the aforementioned Schlenkerla. Between them, the two bars will be serving 17+ unique and diverse chili and smoke (and, in some cases, both) brews from all over the globe!

Pedicab transport will be provided by PDX Pedicab to participants between the locations, but if participants choose to walk, they can easily follow the chiles on “the smoke trail”, a path of smokin’ chile peppers painted along the Killingsworth sidewalk to guide the way.

At both locations, $20 will get you 10 tasting tokens (all 5oz pours will cost 1 token). A Fire & Brimstone tulip glass can also be purchased by participants for $4 (or two tokens) while supplies last. Additional tokens may be purchased for $2 each.

Both venues will also be open for regular business.

The Hop & Vine, which recently celebrated its 4th Anniversary, is a bar & bottle shop servicing North Portland & beyond, offer a depth & breadth of libations & edibles both local and global. They are located at 1914 N Killingsworth St.

Inscribed on a tablet dating back to 1800 BC, the “A Hymn to Ninkasi,” a poem that describes the first-known recipe for beer. From Europe to Egypt, women dominated the brewing world. Men were not permitted to brew and women ran the beer halls and taverns.
