Bailey's Taproom's 3rd Annual BelgianFest

Bailey's Taproom crew

By Michael O’Connor

Bailey's Taproom's BelgianFestNobody loves Belgian beer as much as the Bailey’s crew, which is why for the third year in a row, we’re letting all those esters and adjuncts, fruit and funk run free on our taps. This year’s festival starts Saturday, November 10th at 4 PM for General Admission, or 2 PM for the VIP Experience.

What’s the difference, you ask?

General Admission begins at 4 PM and there’s no cost at the door. You pay for what you drink. Simple, right? Tastes (4 oz) cost either $2 or $3, depending on the beer, while fills (10-12 oz) will cost $4 or $6.

Meanwhile, VIP patrons will get a head-start on these twenty unique brews by gaining entry two hours earlier in a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere. Because admission is limited there will be plenty of seats available and no long lines or crowding. Tickets are only $25 and include the cost of your first six 4 oz tastes (HINT! if you’re smart about your free tasters, early entry almost pays for itself!)

For the list, we’ve assembled a motley assortment of styles, from the traditional and classic to the what-were-they-smoking? All twenty Belgian-style beers are brewed locally by some of our favorite Oregon brewers and we’re happy to report that they’ve really outdone themselves this year. Take a look at our nearly complete list below and keep your ears and eyes open in the following days for further details and reveals!
