After months and months of delays Wayfinder Beer located in Portland’s southeast industrial area will finally tap its first beers brewed in house on Saturday, June 10th.
Since Wayfinder Beer opened its doors over eight months ago it has been serving from a draft list of guest beers and collaboration beers that its brewer Kevin Davey has been brewing with local breweries. Over the past eight months Davey has collaborated with Baerlic, Breakside, Hopworks, 54 40 Brewing, Widmer, Mt. Tabor, Gigantic, Zoiglhaus, Pints, Fatheads, Ecliptic, Occidental, Ross Island, Alameda and Ancestry. An amazing run of some tasty collaboration beers!
But when the doors open on Saturday at 11:00am guests will be able to order Kevin’s first two beers, Wayfinder Hell and Doomtown IPA. Here are descriptions from the brewery on the two beers that will be tapped on Saturday.
