Tin Bucket 3rd Anniversary Celebrations

Tin Bucket

Portland’s Tin Bucket will be celebrating its third year in business with a few nights of events next week from Wednesday, May 11 through Friday, May 13. The festivities will kick off on Wednesday when Tin Bucket will be taking over The Upper Lip for a Tin Bucket Staff Celebration and Tap Takeover. Then on Thursday it’ll be a Corvallis beer night when Block 15 Brewing and Flat Tail Brewing will come full force to Tin Bucket for a night that’ll feature some favorites and rare offering’s from the Corvallis breweries. But the week culminates on Friday for Tin Bucket’s Anniversary and Keg Tappings with a list of 30 beers that will sure make for one fine Friday the 13th. Then on Sunday, May 15, Tin Bucket will release its Anniversary Beer, Therapy Ferret that was brewed with The Ale Apothecary.


TinLip will be an evening when the staff from Tin Bucket will invade The Upper Lip and take over the beer bar’s 6 taps. TinLip will take place on Wednesday, May 11 from 4:00 to 10:00pm. Here’s the Draft List for the TinLip:

  • Logsdon – Peche n Brett
  • Arch Rock – Gold Beach Lager

On the following evening the celebration moves to Tin Bucket where the taps will be occupied by two Corvallis breweries, Block 15 Brewing and Flat Tail Brewing. The taps will begin pouring at 5:00pm. What beers will be pouring? Rest assured as these details are still being worked out but expect some staples and rarities from both breweries.

Not all bad things happen on Friday the 13th. This is especially true this year when Tin Bucket brings out 30 rare and tasty beers from its cellar. The beers will be tapped when Tin Bucket opens at Noon and will flow until the kegs run dry.
