Portland's Cheers to Belgian Beers Saturday, Apr 21st 12:00pm-9:00pm @ Metalcraft Fabrication 723 N Tillamook St.

Portland's Cheers to Belgian Beers is back again this Saturday. It's a 9 hour event, features many one-off beers, there are brewers on hand, and it's a great price! This one is easy people: get your butts out to Cheers to Belgian Beers! If you're not going to listen to me, check out the details below.

The People's Choice winner from the previous year chooses the yeast strain that the brewers will use at the following year's event. Last year marked the first year that there were two tied winners: Hopworks Urban Brewery and Logsdon Farmouse Ales. Most of this year's beers are made with Hopworks' yeast choice: the Wyeast 3864 Canadian/Belgian yeast strain. As noted on the Wyeast page, this strain is mainly used in styles such as Belgian Golden Strong Ales, Belgian Pale Ales, Belgian Specialty Ales, Belgian Tripels, and Witbiers. A few beers were brewed with the Wyeast 3763, Roeselare Ale Blend, mainly used in Flanders Brown Ales/Oud Bruins, Fruit Lambics, Gueuzes, and Straight (Unblended) Lambics.
