Barrel Aged Beer and Cider Fest at the Civic Taproom


The Civic Taproom, one of downtown Portland’s few beer bars, is hosting the Barrel Aged Beer and Cider Fest this Saturday, January 30th, from noon to midnight. While barrel-aged beer is increasingly common, we do not see so many barrel-aged ciders often, much less all in one place like here!

The Civic is dedicating its entire tap system to barrel aged libations for a Saturday full of special beers collected over the last several months. Each keg has been hand-picked by The Civic’s General Manager, Sean Hiatt.

Tickets are priced at $25 and include a souvenir glass plus a complete tasting flight of every barrel aged beer and cider on tap.
