As we approach National Beer Day later this week, Altabira City Tavern will celebrate the occasion when it hosts A tap takeover and food pairing featuring Culmination Brewing. National Beer Day is celebrated to honor the day, April 7, 1933 when it was once again legal to purchase 3.2% beer (4% ABV). This date predates the official repeal of Prohibition that took place later the same year on December 5th.

Beginning at 3:30pm and lasting until closing time on Thursday, April 7, Altabira will serve a flight of Culmination beers that can be paired with beer-inspired cuisine from chef Luis Escorcia. This special food and beer pairing menu will be able to be ordered at anytime throughout the evening and into the night. Culmination brewer, Paul Francis will be on hand to answer any questions you may have regarding Culmination Brewing as patrons can dine either inside the restaurant or its rooftop patio that offers an amazing view of downtown Portland.
