Gigantic Brewer Van Havig - It's Going To Be HugeLikely Oregon’s most anticipated new brewery opening of 2012 is Gigantic Brewing. Headed by two regional craft beer all-stars, Van Havig, who spent 16 years brewing at Portland’s Rock Bottom, and Ben Love, who held down posts at Pelican Brewing in Pacific City and Hopworks Urban Brewery in Portland. Together, the two look to produce a year round IPA and a wide variety of rotating seasonals, specialties, and one-offs. On Wednesday May 9, 2012, Gigantic celebrates the fruits of their labors by kicking off what promises to be one hell of a non-stop party. Here’s the good word from the brewery:

Join us for the opening of the Gigantic Brewing Taproom and Champagne Lounge. Doors at 3pm, open til 9ish. Gigantic IPA & The City Never Sleeps on tap along with our collaboration brews and guest taps. Come celebrate!

Gigantic is located at 5224 SE 26th Avenue (at Steele) in Portland, OR. For more on Gigantic, check out their site: www.giganticbrewing.com

Okay, just for fun, we changed the lyrics to the Pixies song “Gigantic” to fit these guys. Lame? Maybe, but we love these guys!

It’s gonna be huge fa sho’

What a gas it is to see them

Make beer every day

Into a Southeast place

With her lips she sipped

Lovely legs on the glass

Perhaps a big black stout

What a hunk is Mr. Love

Make beer every day into a Southeast place

Beers both pale and dark, Van brews ’em on a whim
