What began as a growler fill shop two years ago that has transitioned over time into becoming a top craft beer bar, North Portland’s Tin Bucket will celebrate its 2nd Anniversary from May 20th to 23rd. To make this 2nd Anniversary even more special the team at Tin Bucket has been saving kegs from the past year and will be serving these malted treats to its loyal customers.
One of the highlights of this event will be the beer that Tin Bucket created with Trevor Rogers at de Garde Brewing in Tillamook. This special blend called The Broken Down Truck will only be available at Tin Bucket on Friday, May 22nd. This is a blended beer from three different barrels from de Garde’s Lambic inspired program and is only available in bottles.
Also further on down the road be on the lookout for the beer that Tin Bucket assisted on in Bend, OR with Ale Apothecary, Therapy Ferret, a rhubarb sour beer aged in three different whiskey barrels from Raven and Rose should be available later this year.
