Every year Portland Brewers Collective hosts the Stout Bout Public Tasting and Raffle. This is a chance for the homebrew and beer-loving communities to come together and celebrate all things stout during depths of winter. We will have more than a dozen stouts to taste during the event. Come early, the most popular stouts run out quickly every year!
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!
This year's free public tasting takes place on
Saturday, February 9th 2019 from 2-5pm at Baerlic Brewing (2235 SE 11th Ave, Portland, OR 97214).
Please note that this is just the public tasting -- the BJCP-sanctioned homebrew competition judging will take place the weekend prior.
Stout Bout People's Choice Award
As part of the public tasting, we will allow the general public to have vote on who wins the Stout Bout 2019 People's Choice Award.
We will award our People's Choice champion in the last 30 minutes of our public tasting.
BJCP Awards Announced
At the end of the event before announcing our People's Choice winners and after our raffle winners are chosen, we will announce the results of the BJCP-sanctioned portion of the competition. This will include medals for the top 3 beers in each category.
You won't want to miss our awards ceremony--the medals we get are customized for Stout Bout and change ever year. Grab your piece of history and enter today!
Partnering with our sponsors, Portland Brewers Collective comes together once a year to offer a public raffle in support of our club. All proceeds go directly to the benefit of the club and our pursuit of supporting the larger Portland homebrewing community.
Raffle winners will be announced a half hour before the event ends.
Stay tuned for announcements about the prizes we will have this year! Past years have included immersion chillers, boil kettles, conical fermenters and much, much more!
Do I need tickets?
No tickets required! This is a free event that is open to the public.
We encourage your support in the form of raffle tickets which will be available for purchase, as well as by buying pints from our gracious hosts Baerlic Brewing.
How do I get invited to pour my beer?
Enter Stout Bout as a brewer and be one of the best performers at the competition.
This is not an objective selection process, every year we pick whatever the 10-15 participating brewers we feel did the best. Feel proud if you are picked, it means we thought you beer was something everyone should try!
If you do intend on entering the BJCP competition, please reserve at least 1-2 gallons of your beers for if you get picked for the public tasting.
Portland Brewers Collective is proud to have the following sponsors for the Stout Bout 2019.
