10 Barrel Brewing Beer Wars Invades Portland

10 Barrel Brewing Beer Wars Brewery List Portland

What began three years ago at its Bend Pub, 10 Barrel Brewing is finally bringing its popular Beer Wars to Portland. Beer Wars will be held outside of 10 Barrel Brewing in Portland, as the streets will be closed down out front on Saturday, August 27, from 5:00 to 8:00pm.

When Beer Wars premiered in 2013, it pitted IPAs brewed by breweries from Bend, Portland, Seattle and San Diego against one another. The tasting was not done blind so maybe that is why the locals from Bend won that year.

In 2016 Beer Wars has changed and all of the tasting of the 30 various IPAs are done blind. Guests will know which breweries are featured but will not know from which taps its beers are pouring. This year there are 30 different IPAs pouring from 5 different states, Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho and Colorado.
