Bailey’s Taproom & The Upper Lip Announce January 2018 Events

Bailey’s Taproom and The Upper Lip

Bailey’s Taproom and their The Upper Lip bar in Portland have announced some of their early 2018 events like Blend Your Own Coffee Stout, CellarFest and hosting Engine House No. 9.

On Tuesday, January 9th The Upper Lip will host an event with Running Man Distribution called Blend Your Own Coffee Stout.

Perennial’s Sump is an annual Imperial Stout release that is proudly blurring the lines between beer and coffee. They’ve decided to separate the two parts so you could masterfully blend your own coffee stout. We got local heroes, Ex Novo, on board for this event to do something similar with Case Study Coffee here in Portland. And just for good measure, we asked the Imperial Restaurant team to bake some sweets that would pair well with your coffee & beer blended creations. Representatives from both breweries will be on hand to talk us through the blending process and share their inspired caffeinated experiences.

The Draft List:

from Perennial

-Prodigal Imperial Stout base beer

-Sump Coffee Kyoto-style coffee

-Sump Imperial Stout

-Coffee Abraxas

from Ex Novo

-Non-Coffee Quaker Shaker Oatmeal Stout base beer

-Case Study coffee

-Kill the Sun
