Double Mountain, one of the best breweries in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, has just informed us of their third anniversary party (you have to say “par-tay” when it’s this cool).
Double Mountain co-founder Charlie Devereux says “Come on down to Double Mountain and help us celebrate three years of fantastic beers, tasty fare and good times with friends. We pay homage to our great family of fans every March with a big blowout party… It’s our way of saying thanks for supporting us all the year round.”
Well, if it’s anything like last year’s Double Mountain party, you know you’re in for a real treat.
This year’s gig promises to be bigger than ever, featuring:
*A 40’x60′ heated tent right in front of the brewery;
*At least fourteen Double Mountain beers on tap, with some rarities from the “archive”;
*Homestyle Mexican food specials, including some killer tamales made by Silvia’s mama;
*Great bands all day and night. Here’s the lineup:
–2:30pm PARIS SLIM (slide guitar blues guru)
–4:30pm GARRETT BRENNAN and the GREAT SALT LICKS (acoustic roots supergroup)
–7:00pm TONY SMILEY and the BIRD (our favorite loop ninja)
–9:00pm CHRONICLE (conscious reggae, on the dance floor)
And as always, the entertainment is FREE!
For all you out-of-towners, Double Mountain’s good friends at the Hood River Hotel are offering a special $89 rate in honor of our gig. Call (800) 386-1859 or visit them online at www.hoodriverhotel.com to book.
This year’s party will be kid-friendly until 8pm. If you have any questions, give us a buzz at 541-387-0042, or shoot us an email at email@example.com. Hope to see you on the 13th!
If all this isn’t enough DM goodness for you, check out the release of their new beer “The Empire Strikes Back” on March 4, 2010 at Moon & Sixpence. This British-style pub is the perfect hosting place for this IPA made with all-English malts and hops — Maris Otter pale, Crisp “coloured malt”, Fuggles and Goldings hops. Currently sitting on a bed of dry-hop Goldings. Devereux says “This is my one-beer-a-year-I-brew (which was Das Boot last year) in honor of our Anniversary. We’ll be doing the meet-the-brewer thing and raffling off schwag.” May the firkin be with you!
