North Portland will be home to a couple of quality beer events during the second full weekend in August when the 6th Annual IIPA Festival returns once again to Saraveza Bottle Shop & Pasty Tavern and its next-door neighbor, The Bad Habit Room on August 15-16. This fest will already be joining the 11th Annual North American Organic Brewers Festival that will already be in progress from August 13-16 at Overlook Park also in North Portland and just a short 30 minute walk away.
This year’s edition of Saraveza’s IIPA Fest will feature over 30 rotating Double & Some Triple IPAs served alongside some tasty Double Bacon BLTs. Also returning this year from its humble beginnings as a Hamm’s Oasis is the popular Berliner Weisse Oasis. There will also be live music to keep a lively atmosphere going that’ll feature Flat Rock Stringband, Voodoo Voltage and the Bad Habit Room’s very own, Rob Bonds.
IIPA Festival hours will be Saturday, August 15th from 1:00 to 9:00pm and Sunday, August 16th from 1:00 to 8:00pm at both Saraveza and The Bad Habit Room.
