The Inaugural NW Coffee Beer Invitational will take place on Saturday, January 25th at the famous Goose Hollow Inn located in Southwest Portland. This tastival will be the first of its kind to feature the two drinks that Portland is famous for, coffee and beer.
Being curated by brewer about town, Dave Fleming, the NW Coffee Beer Invitational is sure to bring out some interesting roasty brews. Fleming has asked talented brewers to show off their creativity at an intimate mid-winter “tastival.” The event is focused on interesting, freshly-brewed beer made with locally-roasted coffee. The emphasis will be on flavors and an abv of 7% or less.
The cozy Goose Hollow Inn on SW Jefferson will be hosting this tastival from 1:00 to 7:00pm on Saturday, January 25th. Since the “Goose” is a bit small inside they will being hosting the tastival in an outdoor tent. Goose Hollow Inn will offer its unique, convivial atmosphere along with special savories on the menu to complement the brews. And to compliment all of these coffee beers will be Donuts! The delicious Donut-O-Rama cart will be parked outside to serve up warm crème brûlée beignets.
