BMBW Beer List for Oct. 11 in Portland, OR

Beers Made By Walking - Portland 2014Sat. October 11th /// 12-5pm
Belmont Station /// Cheese Bar /// Horse Brass Pub
Pay per pint

This coming Saturday, Beers Made By Walking and Forest Park Conservancy will celebrate the end of a summer-long series of hikes with brewers by tapping sixteen beers. Each of the beers have been created after the brewers hiked an Oregon trail, gained inspiration from the landscape, and used local plants in their place-based beer.

On October 11th, from 12-5pm, the beers will be available at three of Portland’s famous beer bars: Cheese Bar, Belmont Station, and Horse Brass Pub. Drinkers can visit any of the three pubs in any order from 12-5pm. Pint sales at all three locations will benefit the Forest Park Conservancy. For those interested in a scheduled walk between venues, our friends at Oregon Walks have organized a free walking tour between the three bars.

Check out the list of beers, organized by their tap locations:
