Aslan Brewing Portland Kickoff Party


Bellingham, Washington’s four year old brewery and pub Aslan Brewing is launching distribution in Portland through General Distributors with a launch party September 1st from 4-8pm at Bailey’s Taproom. Aslan is a Certified B Corporation who also makes USDA Certified Organic Beer. They will be bringing ten of their styles to the launch party to tap, as well as schwag.

From the website the brewery describes their namesake: Aslan, a lion is the King of the Jungle, a regal figure rooted in nature, and aslan is the Turkish word for lion. This aligned our desire to operate a world-class brewery all while preserving the raw and exotic elements of the world. Through hard work and perseverance, we brewed over 130 original pilot batches, connected with local brewers and beer lovers alike, and designed a business plan catered to craft quality and creativity.
