Bazi Bierbrasserie To Host Battle of the Belgians, Mussels from Brussels and a Beer Workout This Week

This week Bazi Bierbrasserie keeps an active beer calendar with three events. Celebrate Battle of the Belgians on Wednesday, Mussels from Brussels on Thursday and a Beer Workout on Saturday morning.

Here are the details for all three events provided by Bazi…

Wednesday, June 14: Battle of the Belgians
It’s Flag Day so what an appropriate day to have a friendly US versus Belgium beer competition. Four US Belgian-inspired styles will be selected to go against four Belgians. Think wit vs wit, saison vs saison, you get the point. Last year Belgium won 3-1. This year’s Battle lineup:

Wit: ColdFire Wit vs Lefvbre Bruxelles de Chambly
Saison: Migration Saison de Blanc vs Du Bocq Saison
Tripel: Occidental Tripel vs Bazi Hofbrouw Tripel
Quad: Upright/Bazi Quad vs Straffe Hendrik Quad

Join us on Wednesday, June 14 between 5-9 PM. It’s your opportunity to try some of these beers side by side and let your palette decide your preferred style. Cost: $15 for 8 – 5 oz tasters.

Thursday, June 15: Mussels from Brussels
The ultimate challenge, Mussels from Brussels returns for its 5th year. Five breweries (Breakside, Culmination, Lompoc, pFriem, and Upright), five secret sauces created by each brewery for dipping in one pound of mussels served with fries, and paired with their Belgian-inspired beer.
But there’s only one “Mussels from Brussels”. You be the judge.

Seating will take place every 30 minutes between 5:30-8:30 PM. Awards ceremony will take place at 9 PM once all votes have been tallied. Limit of 10 persons per seating. Cost is $28 per person plus processing fees and pre-purchase is required via Eventbrite.

Saturday, June 17: PDX Beer Week Workout
Nourish Northwest loves good beer as much as they thrive in healthy living and exercise! Let’s celebrate our city’s beer culture for PDX beer week with a 30 minute HIIT (High-Intensity Interval-Training) workout starting at Nourish Northwest followed by a short .8 mile walk/run down the street to Bazi. Start time is 10:30 AM so plan to arrive 15 minutes early.

At Bazi you will be greeted by owner, Hilda Stevens who will give you a quick intro on Belgian beers and provide samples of both of Bazi’s house beers – A tripel brewed in Belgium and quad brewed in collaboration with Upright brewing.
