Brewer’s Night with Ex Novo, Wed. Aug. 31st, 5-7pm

When Ex Novo founder, Joel Gregory, sat down to plan his brewery, he knew he wanted it to make a positive impact on his Portland, OR community. The best way he know how was to make the business non-profit from the start and split what it earns between four causes: Fr1ends of the Ch1ldren, International Justice Mission, Impact NW, and Mercy Corps. And in 2014, Ex Novo (“from nothing”) became the first Not-for-Profit brewery in the country.

Come in and help support the cause with a pint, Wednesday, August 31st, from 5 to 7pm. We will have some awesome one-off brews, raffle off some rad brewery schwag and you’ll get the opportunity to meet brewery founder Joel Gregory. On tap we will have some seasonally appropriate, refreshingly different brews from Ex Novo, including Cactus Wins the Lottery Prickly Pear Berliner Weisse, Dot the O Kölsch, V for Vienna Lager, Fresh Hop Session IPA, and the flagship Eliot IPA. Don’t miss this event!

Event Date: 
Wednesday, August 31, 2016 - 17:00 to 19:00

Brewer’s Night with Silver Moon, Wed. Aug. 17, 5-7p

on Sat, 08/06/2016 - 22:39

The history of Silver Moon Brewery is entwined with the history with Bend, Oregon. What started as Bend’s first brew shop evolved into Bend’s 3rd local brewery and tasting room, as well as the only brewery that doubled as a speakeasy. The torch was handed to Bend locals Matt Barrett and James Watts in 2013, beginning a new lunar cycle for Silver Moon

Join us Wednesday, August 17th, from 5p to 7p as we host James Watts and the crew from Silver Moon, and tap up some of their out-of-this-world brews. You may even get to snag some rad brewery schwag as well.
