Stickmen Brewing Co. participating in Cheers to Belgian Beers
Lake Oswego-based Stickmen Brewing Co. will participate in the 12th-annual Cheers for Belgian Beers Festival taking place June 1 and 2 at the North Warehouse, 723 N. Tillamook St. in Portland.
More than 70 breweries will take part in the competition, using the same primary yeast strain — Precious — a classic Belgian yeast that features a very mild character balanced with moderate fruitiness. This year the brewers were also given the option to add a secondary aging strain, Suburban Brett, a yeast that "produces complex and balanced aromas of sour cherry and dried fruit," according to organizers.
Stickmen Brewing Co. will send its Raison D'un Petit, a Belgian Dark Strong Ale fermented with the Imperial Yeast Precious strain and then aged for almost three months in Rex Hill Pinot Noir barrels with the Suburban Brett strain.
Admission to the festival is $20 for one souvenir beer goblet and eight drink tickets. Purchase at MercTickets (https://tinyurl.com/yb2u8zp5). For a limited time use code c2bb18 for an advance discount.
Cheers to Belgian Beers will take place from 1 to 9 p.m. Friday, June 1 and noon to 8 p.m. Saturday, June 2. Visit oregoncraftbeer.org/c2bb for more.
