Beer Geek - Winter Craft Beer in the 'Couve

Dec 10, 2015 -- 9:25am

If you didn't get enough craft beer cheer at the Holiday Ale Festival in Portland, go check out this weekend's Vancouver Winter Brewfest at Esther Short Park.  

It features a great beer lineup from various Washington breweries you don't regularly see in Portland along with a fantastic list of holiday beers from no fewer than TWELVE breweries that are cranking out fantastic beer in the greater Vancouver area.  I think the craft beer scene in Vancouver is growing faster than anywhere else in the region right now.

 

Also happening this weekend: Occidental Brewing Company's Humbug Lager Fest.  It's Saturday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.    It will feature a wide variety of lagers (light to dark, easy drinking to strong and bold) from Occidental and other local breweries.

 

Finally a shout-out for the Beer Geek's friends at Imperial Bottle Shop & Taproom in Southeast Portland.  They are celebrating the "21 Days of Festivus" by posting daily giveaways on their Facebook page. Winners will receive prizes ranging from $5 gift cards and swag from local breweries.  The awesome Grand Prize is a , a $1 growler-a-week for all of 2016!  There will be special tappings too.  Stop in and say "hi" to Alex & Shawn.

The First Edition Beer Geek airs every Thursday morning at 7:40 a.m. on First Edition with Tim Hohl & Terry Travis.  Follow me on Twitter @timhohl & use the hashtag #BeerGeek for breaking craft beer news during the week!
