We are approaching mid-November and N.W.I.P.A. has a jammed pack ½ month of events planned for the IPA beer bar in Portland’s FoPo Neighborhood. Events this month include Burger Mondays with Fat Head’s Brewery and Breakside Brewery, Belching Beaver and Three Weavers Nights and Black Friday with Goose Island.
If you haven’t made it to a Burger Mondays at N.W.I.P.A, you’re definitely missing out. Jackson Wyatt does one phenomenal job at cooking up a tasty burger that pairs well with one of the rotating IPAs. What makes his burgers so special is that he prepares these meaty delights sous vide style and then sears them on a grill. Burger Mondays only takes place during the fall and winter and each week he only prepares a limited amount of burgers that can be purchased in advance online here. Don’t disappoint yourself and order in advance!
Here’s what to expect at N.W.I.P.A. during the remainder of November all described from Wyatt himself.
