With its humble beginnings back in 1997, Belmont Station opened its doors across the breezeway from the world famous Horse Brass Pub. In 2006 Belmont Station relocated to a much more spacious location a few blocks north on SE Stark Street. This year marks the 22nd Anniversary for Belmont Station and the popular beer bar and bottle shop will celebrate this milestone on Monday, April 22nd.
For its 22nd anniversary, Belmont Station has partnered up with four Oregon breweries to assist in four special anniversary beers that will be on tap and a few also available in cans. Here’s a rundown on these four beers.
Barley Brown’s Belmont Anniversary IPA – a draft-only offering that founder/brewmaster Tyler Brown says is one of the original recipes for his famous Pallet Jack IPA. (A current version will be pouring alongside it for those wishing to taste the difference).
Culmination Psychic Oasis Hazy Double IPA – brewed with Motueka, Citra and Mosaic hops.
Ruse 45th & Stark IPA – this West Coast IPA is named for the corner where Belmont Station lives.
Wayfinder ‘Tasties’ Export Lagerbier Hell – a refreshing lager dedicated to Belmont Station’s employees who call getting a small sample of a beer at the bar after their shifts “grabbing a Tastie.”
In addition to these four 22nd Anniversary beers being poured, some other special beers will be pouring during the celebration next Monday. Plus, since the anniversary takes place on Earth Day, a portion of the proceeds from the day will be donated to Friends of Trees.
