3 Year Anniversary NYE Celebration: A Benefit for Morgan Miller

This New Years Eve the New School continues our annual anniversary celebration tradition, but unlike previous years the party will be invite-only this year. Of course, I would like to invite the loyal readers of the blog, so without inviting the whole public you can email me at samuraiartist@newschoolbeer.com for an invitation. Space is limited, so if you don’t RSVP, I may close the invitation window before you get a ticket. The party will be taking place at a popular brewery which will be closed for the occasion and will feature 10 different breweries in attendance, each with their own special beer. We will also be raffling off everything from brewery schwag and gift cards to rare vertical flights of bottles and even Hood River hotel room stays.

Like previous years, the NYE celebration is also a benefit and our host brewery and all of our sponsors have been kind enough to donate all beer and raffle prizes to raising money for Ninkasi Brewing brand manager Morgan Miller, who recently had heart surgery. The party costs nothing to get into if you have the invite, but 100% of all sales will go to Morgan to help with hospital bills.

Featured beers/breweries:

10 Barrel: Candy Cane Sinist0r
Deschutes: Saison de perle
Ninkasi: Redunkelulous Dunkelweissen
Upright/Bushwhacker Collaboration: Old Tom Barrel-Aged Lambic blended with Bull Run Temperance Barrel-Aged Pear Cider
Breakside: Imperial Cascadian Dark Ale
Widmer:Imperial O’Ryely Dark
Lompoc: Prime Directive IPA

The party will run 730pm – 1am with a Brewvana Brewery Tours shuttle home at 12am and 1am for just $10 a person. We will also feature a free midnight toast.


A huge thanks goes out to all the breweries donating their time and beer to this benefit and to all those who have supported The New School over the last 3 years!
