2013 Malt Ball Saturday, Feb. 2nd 2pm - Midnight (2 sessions) The Wonder Ballroom Tickets

You know something big is coming when things are set on fire in the promo video. Put together by the Portland Mercury and the Oregon Brewers Guild, this year's Malt Ball looks pretty damn great. In fact, the most expensive ticket—for both sessions—is $25 and includes 8 tasting tokens, a commemorative mug, and a heap 'o live music: 12 bands over 10 hours! You can also attend just one of the sessions for $15 which gets you 4 tasting tokens, a commemorative mug, and access to live music sets from 6 different bands. Couple that with a stellar list of Oregon breweries and you may just have the deal of the year. Experiencing music is much better than just listening to it, just like drinking a beer is better than looking at a picture of it. You can do both at the Malt Ball, so check it out a week from today!

Volunteer beer servers may still be needed, so you can lend a hand and get in for free!
