Craft beer is king here in Portland and two and a half years ago the city’s western suburbs received a killer craft beer bar of their own with the opening of Orenco Taphouse. For the third year in a row we are stoked to team up with the team at Orenco Taphouse for Killer Beer Week to bring you Killer Oregon Coastal Brewery Night on Thursday, October 22nd from 6:00 to 11:00pm.
After loading up the taps last year with Eugene and Corvallis beers for their first Killer Beer Week event and then Bend beers last year, Orenco Taphouse brings us beers from the Oregon Coast when its doors open at 3:00pm. Some of the killer breweries for Killer Oregon Coastal Brewery Night include favorites such as Fort George Brewery, Pelican Brewing, Astoria Brewing, Rogue Ales and others. These long established breweries will be pouring alongside more recent additions to the coast including Yachats, Buoy Beer, Rusty Truck Brewing, Seaside Brewing and Arch Rock Brewing.
Here’s a rundown on some of the featured beers of Killer Oregon Coastal Brewery Night.

Though the event officially kicks off at 6:00pm the taps of Orenco will begin pouring Oregon Coastal beers when the doors open at 3:00pm. With 20 taps to choose from the selections will be pretty killer and can save you a trip out to Highway 101.
With the taps all loaded up with some the finest offerings from the Oregon Coast just hop on the MAX and head to Hillsboro. Located just a short 5 minute walk from the Orenco/NW 231st Ave MAX Station, Orenco Taphouse is an easy train ride from Portland.
