Brewed by Gnomes Launches “Gnomes on Tabor”

You may remember Brewed by Gnomes, a startup Portland gypsy brewery that makes unusual farmhouse-inspired styles including hopless gruits. Brewed by Gnomes had kind of found a taproom in Growlers Hawthorne that dedicated a room to the brewery, but the business changed hands and the taproom went away. Well, Brewed by Gnomes is back with a new Hawthorne Boulevard partnership, this time with Tabor Bread on SE 50th that they are calling “Gnomes on Tabor” and launching this Sunday, June 17th at 4:30pm for Portland Beer Week.

Tabor Bread is an amazing tiny bakery and cafe that has served beer and will now dedicate its taps to Brewed by Gnomes beer. Tabor Bread chef Gevara is creating a special small plate food program to pair with Brewed by Gnomes beers and kombucha.

Keeping with the mystical, fantasy story-book vibe of the Brewed by Gnomes brand story, the launch party is called “Beer, Food and Magical Gnome Stories.” Owner Shay Hosseinion will lead the event with a story telling session on his history and brewing background and just how his magical gnome brewery came to be. There will, of course, be drinks and bites, and there is no charge to visit. Stories start at 5pm sharp. 

Sunday June 17th at 4:30pm
5051 SE Hawthorne Blvd 97215
In a special PDX Beer Week event:

“Beer, Food and Magical Gnome Stories”

Shay will tell the tales of
“The Swedish Farm Gnome of Springtime” and
“How Shay came to talk with the Gnomes”
