Earlier this year Melvin Brewing signed with General Distributors to bring its beers from its home state of Wyoming to the Portland market. Around this same time the brewery began to can a few of its beers. This past June, Melvin Brewing did a one time drop of its cans to Portland that were sold at McMenamins 23rd Avenue Bottle Shop. Now their lineups of cans are available throughout Portland.
Still on a high from winning a Gold medal at the 2016 Great American Beer Festival for its Fresh Hop Melvin IPA in the Fresh or Wet Hop Ale category, Jeremy Tofte, co-founder of Melvin Brewing will be in Portland for a few launch events. Events will take place at Belmont Station, The BeerMongers, APEX, Bridgetown Beerhouse, and Roscoe’s as part of Killer Beer Summit.
Today from 5:00 to 7:00pm Melvin Brewing will be at Belmont Station for a CANSeañera Party. In the Bottle Shop there will be three cans of Melvin Brewing to enjoy, Hubert MPA, Melvin IPA, and 2×4 DIPA. Then in the Bier Café look for Aserisk, 2×4 DIPA, Brosaic, and Hubertin on tap.
Then tomorrow Melvin Brewing will be setting up shop at the corner of SE Division and SE 12th for Barmuda Triangle at The BeerMongers and APEX. Beginning at 5:00pm look for Hubert MPA, 2×4 DIPA, Brosaic and Killer Beers on draft at APEX while across the street at The BeerMongers, they’ll be pouring Asterisk on draft. Plus The Mongers will be selling cans of Hubert MPA, Melvin IPA, and 2×4 DIPA.
On Thursday the Melvin crew will be heading to Bridgetown Beerhouse pouring Hubert MPA, Melvin IPA, 2×4 DIPA, Brosaic, Killer Bees, and Asterisk from 5:00 to 10:00pm. Look for Melvin’s can offerings as well.
