What a way to end Oregon Beer Craft Month: twelve unmarked Oregon Imperial IPAs in 3 ounce tasters for $13!  Of course, not everyone out there is a hophead, but for those of us that love big imperial IPAs, this is a fun event every year.  Work your way through the tasters, take some notes, and mark your top contender on the ballot.  Concordia Ale House does heavy lifting when it comes to counting the votes.  And very importantly, does it with a smile!  In a town where service can be mediocre at best, Concordia Ale House is a great stop for friendly and knowledgeable staff.  If anything can test the staff, it's five days of pouring 12 beer sampler trays, and still smiling on the other end.  Thanks Concordia!

While the event may be over, you still have a chance to try all of the contenders as they are currently available on draft.
