So, what is beercycling all about? Simply put, combines (in our opinion) the two greatest things on the planet: beer tasting and bicycle touring. Tours to vineyards have been popular for years, but brewery tours are becoming more and more common as well. This makes it easy for anyone to plan a trip to taste their favorites right from the source!

Bazi, located in the heart of the Hawthorne District just south on SE 32nd Ave, is a Monks watering hole. A full service bar, Bazi brings centuries of brewing expertise under one roof by pouring domestic and imported Belgian craft beers. Wine and a premium liquor selection compliment many along with signature cocktails. The food menu blends a heritage influenced by the French, Dutch and German. Just like the European tradition, Bazi embraces all local sport teams and encourages enthusiasts to gather together to cheer for your local team on a 114” HDTV!
