Help Me Wakonda!

Beach dunes of Florence, Oregon

Okay. Here’s where I spot a rare event on our favorable beer calendar.  The Wakonda Meet the Brewer event at the Green Dragon (now run by Rogue) is a rare chance to palate the Central Oregon Coast brewery’s offerings. Formerly of Alaska, the somewhat obscure Oregon production brewery will make a trip to Portland, a three hour drive from Florence. We received the announcement from Ross Baechle at Rogue about this event.

Baechle says: Wakonda Brewing will be joining us this coming week!  The information is as follows.

Green Dragon Brewpub presents “Meet the Brewer” Tuesday December 30th 2008, featuring Juanita Kirkham of Wakonda Brewing from 6:00p to 8:00p.

Wakonda Brewing is a production brewery out of Florence, OR that opened in 2004.  They recently added a tasting room that opened in October of 2008.

This is only the second time Wakonda’s beers have been poured in a Portland pub.

Featured beers:       Timberbeast IPA

Beachcomber Cream Ale

Black Elk Stout

The Green Dragon is located at 928 SE 9th Ave Portland, OR 97214.

I hope you had a great holiday!”
