Bottles, located on NE Fremont and 51st, will be celebrating their 4th holiday party with a new twist this year. On Saturday, December 20th, from 7:00 to 9:00pm, Bottles will be hosting their inaugural Nightmare Before Beermas Party. This will be an evening full of great beer, food and prizes along with being a fundraiser for Albina Head Start.
The evening will feature some rare specialty beers. Bottles will have six special beers on tap from Goose Island, Oakshire, Sierra Nevada & Bells, and Finnriver on their newly renovated back patio.
The tap list will feature the following:
Goose Island Bourbon County Stout
Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee Stout
Oakshire Very Ill-Tempered Gnome
Sierra Nevada / Bells Maillard’s Odyssey Imperial Dark Ale
Finnriver Cranberry Cider
Finnriver Heated Spiced Cider
“We have been hard at work building the new roof for our back patio, so we can have our friends enjoy a tasty pint on our back patio without enjoying the lovely Portland winter weather” says Bottles co-owner Brant Kunze.
Bottles will also be running a charity drive for the Albina Head Start program (albinahs.org). Please bring school supplies for young children to drive assist in their growth. Pens, pencils, crayons, paper, paint, etc., it’s all appreciated. Once collected, Bottles will be donating everything to the school to help make a child’s school day that much more enriching.
Anyone who makes a donation will receive a raffle ticket for prize drawings throughout the evening. Sierra Nevada and Oakshire will be donating prizes along with some prizes from Bottles. More presents under the tree equals more happy kids. Win!
Come in costume, come to donate, come to sample the beers during this fun filled evening.
