HUB to Pub charity ride: Hopworks will celebrate the new location’s opening with a fun ride including owner/brewmaster Christian Ettinger. Led by Portland Bicycle Tours, the ride departs from Hopworks Urban Brewery (2944 SE Powell Blvd.) and travels along the waterfront before hooking up with the Williams Ave. “Bike Highway” and arriving at BikeBar.

The ride departs Hopworks at 5 p.m. and is expected to arrive at BikeBar at 6 p.m. Signups for the ride begin in the back parking lot at 4:30.

A $10 donation gets you BikeBar schwag and 2 tickets for free beer at BikeBar’s grand opening. Wear your favorite HUB shirt and get an extra ticket.

Local brewery tour company Brewvana will also run a shuttle from Hopworks to the new location between 5:30 and 8:30 p.m.
