Affligem Tasting Seminar at Bazi Bierbrasserie


Portland’s Belgian/European inspired bier bar Bazi Bierbrasserie is hosting an Affligem Tasting Seminar this Thursday, December 18, starting at 7 PM. The seminar will last approximately one hour.

Affligem has been brewing the most outstanding abbey beers in Belgium for over 950 years. The beers are still brewed according to the Belgian Benedictine monks’ strict traditions of purity and craftsmanship, maintaining Old World quality and complex flavors for which they have become renowned. Affligem beers have won high ratings and reviews with beer connoisseurs and international trade publications, and have been recognized for outstanding quality in The World Beer Cup, the Brewing Industry International Awards, and the International Beer Challenge, among others.

Participants will get to learn the history of the brewery all while experiencing four of the brewery’s beers: Blonde, Dubbel, Noel, and Cuvee. The official Affligem Tasting Tray will be used as part of the seminar. Each beer pour will consist of 1-12 oz pour (Blonde) and 3-8 oz pours (Dubbel, Noel and Cuvee). The seminar costs $24 including gratuity. At the end of the seminar, attendees will be able to take the tasting tray and corresponding glassware home.

Reservations can be made online at or by calling 503.234.8888. There’s a limit of 20 participants for this event.
