Barleywine and Big Beer Tastival 2010

Brewpublic's annual Killer Beer Week is back, and it kicks off in just two days!  Jeck out the awesome events coming up next week in the official press release:

It’s official, KillerBeerWeek is back and this time Brewpublic has gone bigger than ever before. Starting on Sunday October 16 and lasting until Sunday October 23, KillerBeerWeek aims to deliver some of the best and most interesting beers the region has to offer at some of the best pubs in the Portland area.

Here’s the lineup of events scheduled for KillerBeerWeek 2011:

KillerBeerSummit @ Roscoe’s 8105 SE Stark St. Sunday October 16 4PM-close Montavilla’s best craft beer spot serves up special kegs and some of our favorites of the year for this badass night of craft brew quaffing. Roscoe’s knows how to get a party started so don’t miss this KBW kickoff celebration. Look for a range of styles and many brews you will love.

KillerPumpkinFest @ Green Dragon 928 SE 9th Ave. Monday October 17 5PM-close A devastating lineup of killer brew graces the taps at this inner SE PDX brewtopia. On this evening more than 15 gourd-eous pumpkin brews will fill the taps including a Hopworks and Breakside hollowed out pumpkin “casks.” This ultimate pumpkin blowout will also feature multiple food items such as pumpkin pie, toasted pumpkin seeds, and pumpkin cookies.

Killer Beers of Southern Oregon @ Bottles 5015 NE Fremont St. Tuesday October 18 5PM-close Bottles has quickly asserted itself as one of the best places for great beer in not only the Beaumont Neighborhood, but also in Portland. Oregon is a big-ass state so we’ve decided to head south and wrangle up a nice assortment of craft beers from Southern Oregon breweries such as SOB, Caldera, Wild River, Klamath Basin, Standing Stone, Draper, and more.

Killer Beers of Central Oregon @ The BeerMongers 1125 SE Division St. Wednesday October 19 5PM-close Our third installment of this event featuring craft breweries from Bend and Beyond. Mouthwatering goodies from Bend Brewing, Cascade Lakes, Deschutes, Boneyard Beer, GoodLife, Below Grade, 10 Barrel, and Three Creeks. Yee haw!

Killer Beers of Washington State @ By The Bottle 104. West Evergreen Blvd., Vancouver, WA Thursday October 20 5PM-close By The Bottle is undoubtedly Southwest Washington’s best place to find an array of craft brews.  For the second year Brewpublic loads up the taps here with Washington pours unavailable in Oregon. Look for specialties and one-offs from Naked City, Silver City, Fremont, Ice Harbor, Black Raven, Chuckanut, Boundary Bay, and more!

Brewpublic’s 3rd Brewniversary Party! @ Saraveza 1004 N. Killingsworth Friday October 21 6PM-close Saraveza is our home away from home. The staff is our family. The beer is utterly killer every day of the year. On this night we toast our friends, family, and loved ones who make this place Beervana. Look for phenomenal offerings from Upright, Boneyard, Laurelwood, The Commons, Walking Man, New Old Lompoc, Mt. Tabor, De La Senne, and Roots. Smeirlap!

KillerBeerFest !!! @ Bailey’s Taproom 213 SW Broadway Saturday October 22 4PM-close This is our salute to the brewers who blow our minds and have won our hearts. Not just great brewers, but friends and those who are insane about craft beer the way we are. For this, the climax of our KillerBeer festivities, we have curated an eclectic lineup of some hard to find one-offs to share. This year’s KillerBeerFest will also feature a handful of beers brewed with Rooibos dedicated to our favorite brewer Alex Ganum of Upright Brewing.
