The Hop & Vine Closing Celebration & Ampersand Bottle Releases


Sadly, last month The Hop & Vine in N. Portland announced it would be closing at the end of July; now the venerable NoPo beer bar has announced closing celebrations. Through the end of the month, The Hop & Vine will be hosting an 8th anniversary party, Pig Roast, Luau Party and Ampersand bottle releases.

Join The Hop & Vine on Friday, July 22nd, for its 8th Anniversary Luau Shenanigans Closing Party and help celebrate 8 glorious years of business in North Portland. In order to blow it out for their last two days of business the Hop & Vine is planning to hold the 8th Anniversary Party in style by throwing a Luau themed party on it’s huge patio located at 1914 N Killingsworth St.

Starting on Friday at 3pm the Hop & Vine crew welcomes friends of new and old to join them with the spirits from the tropical island gods to celebrate in Luau style with a pig roast at 6pm and pineapple cocktails all day and night.

The Luau shenanigans will continue late into the night, but the fun won’t end then. The Hop & Vine will be open on Saturday July 23rd for it’s final time. The food specials, grab bags, and drink specials will continue!

“We will be celebrating the last 8 wonderful years we have shared at the Hop & Vine with all our friends we’ve made along the way”, said owner Yetta Vorobik-Yakobson. With the Hop & Vine officially closing it’s doors on the night of Saturday July 23rd we would like to invite you to this final Anniversary Luau and Celebration which will last from Friday July 22nd until we close our doors one last time late on July 23rd!

The Hop & Vine announced in June that it would be closing its doors at the end of July and would have additional Ampersand Fermentation releases before closing.

On Wednesday, July 20th, the Hop & Vine will be releasing bottles of its Volume 3, Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 specialty collaboration beer releases. This is the first Ampersand Collaborations release brewed by the husband and wife team of Yetta and Chad Vorobik-Yakobson at their Colorado brewery, Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project and aged in Oregon’s Ransom Spirits Barrels. Chapter 1 is a Golden Sour Botanical Ale Aged in Old Tom Gin Barrels. Brewed with botanicals to match the character of a smooth barrel-aged gin this beer strikes a balance with the herbaceous notes and tart lemony sour characteristics. Chapter 2 is a Burgundy Sour Ale Aged in Rye Whiskey Barrels. This sour beer blends equal parts tart cherry notes with spicy Rye Whiskey and French Oak notes. Produced in extremely small amounts, less then 10 cases are available of each beer. Come in on July 20th to taste these two limited release beers and pick up your bottles before the Hop & Vine closes!
