BelgianFest VII, NEW Hausbier Series, Krieks


Join us this Saturday, November 12th as we celebrate our 7th Annual BelgianFest!

Bailey’s Taproom will be home to our annual celebration of  Belgian-style beers from our favorite Oregon breweries. Admission is free!

Debuting at BelgianFest VII, Bailey’s Taproom will feature a rotating house beer, or Hausbier. Brewed by a different brewery each quarter, expect easy-drinking, sessionable styles that fit the seasons and our tastes. The series will be exclusive to both Bailey’s Taproom and the current participating brewery. This program will be lead by our in-house Advanced Cicerone® & Assistant Manager, Ryan Spencer of the Imperial Session beer-pairing dinner series. We invited our longtime friends, The Commons, to collaborate on the debut beer of the series. In our brainstorming meeting, we lamented over our love of well-crafted Witbiers. Once we got talking, the beer became something different but the root of the Wit style still lies as our main inspiration.

from The Commons Head Brewer, Sean Burke:

“We landed on doing a White Lager, with some newer German hops…and spicing it for the appropriate season. … Basically we’re taking inspiration from a Wit, but using lager yeast.”

Hausbier: White Lager will be tapped Saturday, November 12th (noon-midnight) for our annual BelgianFest celebration! And…

Since we’re going all-out on Belgian-style beer, we thought we’d let our sister bar, The Upper Lip, get in on the action.

Introducing… Kriek’n On A Come Up at The Upper Lip

This will be a mini-fest within a fest celebrating the fine art of sour cherry ale. We noticed a trend in our coolers recently and figured BelgianFest would be an opportune time to showcase this lovely stone fruit. We’ll tap six American sour cherry ales at noon then change out the taps at 6PM for six examples from Europe. The hours will be the same as BelgianFest.

Note: You cannot roam between our bars with open containers. Feel free to open tabs at both bars and migrate once beverages have been 100% consumed. Thank You!
