The Hop and Vine Mixer

Looking for something to do on a Wednesday night…well look no further. This Wednesday, December the 29th at The Hop and Vine, two beer icons will be mixing some cocktails for a good cause.

The Hop and Vine

Shake off the Christmas blues and warm up for the New Year with two of the beer worlds great personalities the Sweet Little F*cker Jamie Floyd of Ninkasi Brewing and the Publican and Jack-of-all-trades Jim Parker (down from Bellingham, WA) who will be taking over The Hop & Vine bar Wednesday evening starting at 6pm.

Each of them are concocting 3 special cocktails for the menu and those drinks will be only $6 a piece with $1 of every purchase going to the Oregon Humane Society.

Don’t worry beer geeks we will also have some tasty brews on tap including Ninkasi’s Imperial Stout the Unconventionale but tonight will be a chance to see what these reputable beer pioneers can offer up in the booze and mixology departments. Both have history behind the bar rather than in front of it so this should be an interesting night offering the chance for them to cut loose and have a fun time. Come out and say hello and knock back a few for a good cause!
