NWIPA Announces November Beer, Cider & Wine Events

NWIPA Portland

Gangsta rap-inspired southeast Portland beer bar and bottleshop N.W.I.P.A. has announced its November beer and wine event schedule. As usual, it’s a packed month with special guest chefs, cideries, breweries, and even a wine class.

Swift Cider Bottle Release – Thursday, November 12th 6:00 to 9:00 PM
Swift Cider is a revival, a redemption and a reinvention of American hard cider. We call it craft cider because we make it by hand in Northeast Portland using nothing but locally grown apples, whole fruit, hops and spices. That means no sugar, no water, no apple concentrate and no candy apple flavor. Craft cider is crisp, and by crisp we mean dry. A dry finish means less residual sugar, less residual belly aches, and a fine balance that invites you back for more.
We will have one cider on draft and be sampling bottles of Swift’s other offerings from Aiden and the crew, including the Dank Hop!

Stealth #2 (Pop Up/Menu Takeover) – Wednesday, November 18th 6:00 to 9:00 PM

Goose Island’s Bourbon County Stout is released on this day too. To celebrate we will be pouring 2014 BCS and Vanilla Rye kegs plus much, much more.

De Garde’s Bu Rice Release featuring Nevor Shellfish – Saturday, November 28th – 2:00 to 5:00 PM

We are honored to be holding the PDX release of De Garde’s Bu Rice bottles. This beer was concocted during Brad Basile’s tenure at De Garde. Bu Rice is a golden wild ale aged for approximately a year in Gin, Dry Vermouth and neutral oak barrels. It has a huge citrusy character with a big herbal backing. Dry, briskly carbonated and pretty much awesome!
Brad and De Garde were nice enough to select us as the place to release this beer. Bu Rice will be in bottles only, 750 ml. We will be doing bottle pours and hope to have a couple of different De Garde beers on tap plus some other choices from Trevor, Linsey, and Brad. Travis from Nevor Shellfish will also be in attendance shucking oysters for a real coastal experience in the heart of FoPo.
