Drinking Rare Beer For Angelo at Bad Habit Room
November 24, 2013 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
To give a little back to Angelo De Ieso, founder of Brewpublic, who has given so much to our Portland beer community, Cascade Brewing, will be bringing two extra special beers from the vault to share with a few lucky beer lovers. The opportunity to try these extremely rare beers is limited to 22 tickets and will be offered on a first come/first serve basis. ALL proceeds will go directly to Angelo to help covering his mounting medical bills. And to top off the evening the Bad Habit Room will be showing Angelo’s beloved New England Patriots take on the Denver Broncos.
Cascade Brewing’s 2007 Cuvée du Jongleur is a blend of select barrels of Flanders Reds, Triples, and Blond Quads that have undergone lactic fermentation and barrel aging up to 18 months. This Belgian Ale is bottle conditioned by 4 months of lactic fermentation and aging. The six years of cellar aging has softened and rounded this beer and it now has sherry notes in the finish.
Cascade Brewing’s 2007 P-Quad is Vlad (before it was called Vlad), which has not been spiced and was aged in a Pinot Noir instead of Bourbon barrels. Nearly all Vlad is now aged in Heaven Hills Bourbon Barrels. The original Vlad was a blend of Bourbon and Pinot barrels, so the P-quad is a single component of the original Vlad. The six years in the cellar have turned this “staff only” beer into a tart yet sweet little surprise. Tasting this, then Vlad really reveals the journey.
One ticket gets you 2 oz of Cuvée du Jongleur, 2 oz of P-Quad and the satisfaction that you are helping out someone who has been invaluable to Portland’s Craft Beer world. Only one ticket per person. You are welcome to share your rare beer samples with a friend. Tickets will be redeemed on Sunday, November 24th between 5-9pm in Bad Habit Room. As part of our ongoing fundraising efforts, you will also have the opportunity to purchase additional beers on draft. A full menu will be available.
The first 22 to send in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Drinking Rare Beer for Angelo” and their name, address and phone # in the body of the email will be notified that they made the list. Those notified have one week to come into Saraveza to reserve their space. To make your reservation you must have your ID and $25 cash.
We have started to receive donations from people’s private cellars. We will be putting these rare bottles on display and will hold a silent auction during the event to raise more money for Angelo. If you have bottles that you would like to donate please email email@example.com.
