As we close out 2015 and welcome in 2016 tonight, there are many great craft beer events to help in the celebration. We may be a bit partial to the event we are hosting at Bailey’s Taproom but whatever you choose to do make sure to make it a safe night.

With the addition of Lyft and Uber, along with the fleet of various Portland taxis there are numerous options to travel safely. And best of all TriMet is free on New Year’s Eve after 8:00pm. Busses will run on normal weekday schedules and all MAX lines will have an extended late night service until about 3:00am.
