Public Tasting

UPDATE 2/8/19: Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of the attendees of Stout Bout, we have decided to reschedule the event due to predicted winter snow conditions in Portland. The new date of our event and results announcement is now Saturday, February 23rd, 2-5pm at Baerlic Brewing. We're sorry for those of you who had plans built around us, but we'll be sure to make it up to you in two weeks!

The public stout tasting is comprised of the brewers who have performed the best in the Stout Bout homebrew competition. Our gracious hosts, Baerlic Brewing, help us celebrate these local legends in back of their brewery every February. This year's free public tasting takes place on Saturday, February 9th 2019 from 2-5pm at Baerlic Brewing.

Come try a dozen or more homebrewed stouts FOR FREE! Enter our raffle, enjoy some of Baerlic's offerings, and warm up on a cold February Saturday afternoon with us.
