When Beers and Bands Collide: Sabertooth Collaboration Beer Tasting

This is a past event. Saturday, May 4 at 3:00pm

McMenamins Crystal Ballroom 1332 W. Burnside St., Portland, OR 97209

3 p.m. beer tasting and vendor gazing; 4:30 p.m. music.

Inspired by the way brewing often intersects with music, and the way that music often intersects with beer, the Sabertooth Microfest embraces this collaborative spirit by pairing McMenamins brewers with musicians to brew a beer and utilize the perfect occasion and optimal venue to showcase their specialties. Some musicians have requested a particular beer style, or relied on the brewer to listen to the band's music and see what inspiration strikes. A few of the bands will even be present for the brew, adding a certain quintessence that only this kind of partnership can generate. From Session Ale to Stout, each of these beers will offer insight into the varying psyches of the creators, and they're available for one night only!
