15th Annual Invitational Barley Wine and Big Beer Tastival

15th Annual Invitational Barley Wine and Big Beer Tastival

Come join us for the the 15th Tastival at the Qimby Beerhall Friday, February 28th and Saturday, March 1, from noon to 10 p.m.

We have a total of over 50 beers so far!  We will have about 25 on tap at any one time and we rotate through as the event progresses.

An event glass and four tasting tokens are just $14 and extra tickets are $1.75 each (you’ll need double tickets for special rare beers).  See the tentative line up below.

Did you know the first barley wines were actually Greek?  Well, sort of.  According to Wikipedia, the Ancient Greeks brewed krithinos oinos, barley wine, although hops were not used until Bass made the first modern beer sold as a barley wine in 1870.  Here in America the first modern barley wine did not come around until Anchor brewed Old Foghorn in 1976. In the late eighties BridgePort fired out the #1 bottling of Old Knucklehead here in Portland.  Here at the Lucky Lab we have brewed Ol’ Yeller since 1998.  At this year’s Tastival we will have a vertical tasting of four year’s worth of Ol’ Yeller plus the Son of Ol’ Yeller.

-Cheers!
