Brewvana Brewery Tours

Tired of seeing heart shaped boxes full of chocolate? Sick of sales on roses? Or maybe you just need a good excuse to drink great Portland beer on a Tuesday. Brewvana Portland Brewery Tours feels the same way! They've created a great package which includes beer, dinner (and more beer), and a movie (and more beer)! Check out the details from the official press release:

BREWVANA Portland Brewery Tours is hosting a Valentine's Day BEER LOVE Tour for beer lovers in Portland. Taking place on Tuesday, February 14th from 5:30 - 9:30 p.m., the tour will feature two breweries and a screening of "The Love of Beer," a documentary about women in the craft beer industry.

"For many of us, beer is what we love unconditionally day in and day out," proudly states BREWVANA founder Ashley Rose Salvitti. "Turning Valentine's Day into a celebration of beer is the perfect way to embrace the liquid that we love with the people that we love."

The tour will begin at Cascade Barrel House for their weekly Tap it Tuesday event where a barrel is tapped in front of the crowd. Cascade specializes in very unique barrel-aged and sour beers. Tour participants will sample beer and get a behind-the-scenes tour of the brewery and barrel room with Preston Weesner, Cascade's Barrel Tender & Blender.

The second stop will feature dinner and a sampling of several beers at Breakside Brewery. Releasing 92 different beers in 2011, Breakside produces more beer on their small seven-barrel system than any other brewery in Oregon.

The final stop will be at Saraveza's Bad Habit Room for an 8 p.m. screening of "The Love of Beer", a documentary about women in the craft beer industry filmed in Oregon. Donations will be accepted and BREWVANA will be raffling off T-shirts to raise money for the film's producer.

Tickets for BREWVANVA's BEER LOVE Tour are $69 per person and are all inclusive, consisting of the tour of Cascade, the dinner at Breakside, the screening of "The Love of Beer", and beer at each location. Tickets are available at BREWVANA's website.

Seating is limited and reservations must be made in advance. Pick-up locations and times for the tour are 5 p.m. at SW Salmon Springs Fountain, 5:15 p.m. at the Oregon Convention Center and 5:20 p.m. at APEX, a beer bar located at 1216 SE Division. Drop-off at the same locations at the conclusion of the tour.
