With 2018 just around the corner Bailey’s Taproom is ready to leave 2017 in the rearview mirror and welcome in the New Year with three events during the month of January. After celebrating its 10th anniversary last year and hosting the most events it ever had to honor this milestone, it looks as if the team at Bailey’s plans to keep the fun rolling into the coming year.
Mark your calendars for Blend Your Own Coffee Stout on January 9th (at The Upper Lip), 9th AnnualCellarFest on January 20th, and Engine House No. 9 Meet the Brewer on January 30th.
Blend Your Own Coffee Stout Tuesday, January 9 – 5:00-8:00pm
Taking place up above Bailey’s Taproom at The Upper Lip, Running Man Distributing is bringing in Perennial Artisan Ales and Ex Novo Brewing for Blend Your Own Coffee Stout.
Perennial’s Sump is an annual Imperial Stout release that is proudly blurring the lines between beer and coffee. They’ve decided to separate the two parts so you could masterfully blend your own coffee stout. We got local heroes, Ex Novo, on board for this event to do something similar with Case Study Coffee here in Portland. And just for good measure, we asked the Imperial Restaurant team to bake some sweets that would pair well with your coffee & beer blended creations. Representatives from both breweries will be on hand to talk us through the blending process and share their inspired caffeinated experiences.
Blend Your Own Coffee Stout Tap List: from Perennial
-Prodigal Imperial Stout base beer
-Sump Coffee Kyoto-style coffee
-Sump Imperial Stout
from Ex Novo
-Non-Coffee Quaker Shaker Oatmeal Stout base beer
-Case Study coffee
