Brewstillery at StormBreaker Brewing!
Beer ~ Spirits ~ Jucy Lucy Burgers ~ and More!
On Saturday Feb 24th, 2018 from Noon – 8 PM StormBreaker Brewing will be hosting the 2018 edition of Brewstillery – Portland’s Beer and Spirits Pairing Festival!
They will have 21 Breweries, 20 Distilleries, and one great burger!
This will be my 4th year attending this awesome Portland Beer Festival, and each year it just gets better!
Below, at the end of this article – I have advance photos of the program so you can read about each pairing and scope out the ones that you want to enjoy when you attend Brewstillery.
Between the Brewstillery Media Preview I attended and the Portland Beer Podcast Brewstillery 2018 Preview I recorded, I have been lucky enough to enjoy quite a few of the Beer/Spirit Pairings they will be pouring this year.
Of the ones I have previewed – my very favorite 2018 Brewstillery pairing was the
Nocino Vlad – Cascade Brewing Orange Vlad + Stone Barn Brandyworks Nocino
I also really enjoyed these parings-
Gin Beast: Little Beast Brewing Bes Tart Wheat ale + Rose City Distilling Cricket Club Gin
Mesclando Sabores – Baerlic Brewing Oatmeal Stout + Engenho Buritide Minas Famosinhade Minas Cachaca
Noble’s big Triple – StormBreaker Brewing Barrel Aged Big Bottom Triple XL IIIPA + Big Bottom Distilling Bourbon Finished in Port Casks
To Peach Their Own: Ecliptic Brewing Carina peach sour ale + Townshend’s Distillery Bluebird Alpine Liqueur
Breakfast Time! Great Notion Brewing Double Stack Imperial Stout + Bull Run Distillery Oregon Single Malt Whiskey
Douglas Rain: Pelican Brewing Umbrella IPA + Clear Creek Distillery Douglas Fir Brandy
The Jucy Lucy Burger!
They have a fantastic burger at Stormbreaker Brewing — The Jucy Lucy!
This gem of a burger is inspired by the wonderful regional burger you can get in the Twin Cities, is a fontina cheese stuffed burger and it comes with bacon jam, iceberg lettuce, tomato and herb aioli.
My suggestion – go to Stormbreaker for Brewstillery and have some off the Beer and Spirit pairings and then take a break and fuel up with the Jucy Lucy before going back for even more of the 2018 Brewstillery Beer and Spirit pairings!
