Join us for Portland’s first annual Starkbier Fest! This lent tradition dates back to the middle ages, when monks would fast from Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday. Because the monks believed that liquids not only cleansed the body but also the soul, they would make plenty of liquid instead of solid bread from their grain, and then drink it in copious quantities…the more, the holier. While our fast won’t last 46 days, we can still celebrate their sacrifice by consuming delicous strong biers.
We will have featured doppelbocks on draft and in bottles as well as food specials to help you absorb these high ABV beers. Follow this event for updates on the bier line up and the specials as we release them.
