Belmont Station is Oregon’s most acclaimed bottleshop and taproom, and last Thursday celebrated its 19th anniversary. This Monday, March 20, the shop’s official 19th Anniversary beer, a barleywine from Ecliptic Brewing, will be released in bottles. I stayed late at the anniversary party that coincided with St. Patrick’s Day to enjoy a late night toast of a ceremonial half gallon of Barley Browns Pallet Jack poured into an oversized (huge) Orval chalice and passed around. I followed it with an Underberg for good measure.

Though you may have missed the party, there is still time to hit up the 19th Anniversary Bottle Release today, Monday, March 21st. The official beer brewed with Ecliptic Brewing–a barleywine aged in bourbon barrels for about a year–will go on sale at noon, and Brewmaster/Owner John Harris and the Ecliptic crew will be on hand from 5-7pm. If you have had John’s BBA Orange Giant Barleywine, you know he is a master of this style, and many of the Belmont Station anniversary beers are highly coveted items. Don’t miss it.
