Occidental Brewing Co. will host their Second Annual Humbug Lager Fest. The small festival being held on December 14 from Noon to 10pm at Occidental in Portland’s St. Johns neighborhood will feature delicious lager beers from several Oregon breweries and beyond.
With tongue firmly planted in cheek, Occidental decided it was time to offer Portland beer enthusiasts a respite from fruitcake beers during the holiday season. This annual fest will give quaffers an opportunity to enjoy crisp, clean lagers from the Commons, Upright, Heater Allen, Breakside, Rock Bottom, Firestone Walker, Ninkasi, Ayinger, Oakshire, Lompoc, Southern Oregon, Hopworks, Old Town, and of course, Occidental.
There is no admission fee to this indoor festival, and full pours will be available in addition to tasters. Beer will also be served in glass.
While slaking your thirst with these marvelous lagers, fill your belly with the hearty cuisine of Urban German and enjoy tunes spun by Brewer DJ’s.
