May Flowers! Hop Events + More

[Click Here for Single Hop – Triple Blind Taste Fest Answers]

Join us Saturday May, 13 as we continue celebrating “10 Years with Bailey’s Taproom” with our May Flowers! hop events. We’ll have plenty of taps flowing at both bars with Cloudy, Hazy & Single Hop Ales for a dimensional, yet educational experience. Downstairs, at Bailey’s Taproom, we’ll celebrate the recent haze craze with beers as cloudy as our beloved Northwest skies at our Head in the Clouds event. Upstairs, at The Upper Lip, we’ll hold the Triple Blind Single Hop Taste Fest. Tasters can blindly purchase six beers made with Single Hops and guess from a bank of varietals to win prizes (and bragging rights!).  Admission is free and the event will be rocking from noon to midnight! We hope to see you there.

Also During the Month of May:

Our HAUSBIER program is going into it’s third season with the Flat Tail collaboration, Solo Dolo! The gang at Bailey’s Taproom have long been friends & fans of the Flat Tail crew and it’s no lie that we ask for a keg (or 3) of Licentious Goat every time we meet. So, when it came time to draw up ideas for a collaborative ale, we decided to make a Kid. No really, a Kid is a baby Goat. Designed for Spring weather, we shrunk down the Licentious Goat recipe to an India Session Ale, decided to use solely Simcoe for hopping, and of course, included a kiss of those lovely herbs that gives the Goat it’s unique flavor. Expect to see Solo Dolo on tap starting Mid-May!

On May 10th our good friends at Tin Bucket are celebrating their 4th Anniversary! It’s become a tradition that they takeover The Upper Lip for a night away from the taps and get on the right side of the bar for a change. Dubbed TinLip, the crew curates a pretty impressive list of their favorites, rarities, pop some bottles, and cheers until Jason gets partially naked &  screams “Don’t trade it, just drink it!” Or, uh, so we imagine 😉 Admission is free but we’ll kick out anyone who makes beer buyer jokes to Jim & Bill.
