On Saturday our biggest and baddest event of the year returns to one of the best beer bars in the land. Yes, its time for our 9th Annual KillerBeerFest at Bailey’s Taproom on Saturday, October 28th!
When we enter day 9 of Killer Beer Week we return to one of our favorite bars to celebrate with you, our loyal readers. This year we worked hard with Bill Murnighan of Bailey’s Taproom to create one KILLER tap list. We reached out to breweries both near and a far to bring some amazing beers to the 26 taps at Bailey’s.
There will be a few debut beers to Portland pouring including the latest Bailey’s Taproom Hausbier. For this one the crew at Bailey’s collaborated with Shaun Kalis at Ruse Brewing for Eyes of the Moon Table Saison. We also have the only keg in existence of KillerBerlinerWeisse from Alesong Brewing & Blending. This version of its Berliner Weisse features Cucumber, Lime, and Black Pepper!
Beyond these two debuts we have some very rare offerings from the likes of Reuben’s Brews, Crux Fermentation Project, Everybody’s Brewing, Pizza Port Brewing, Beachwood Brewing and more!
Doors open at Noon, there’s no cover and there’s no better way to spend a Saturday than perusing this KILLER beer list of 26 options.
