Cherry Festivus makes Mother’s Day Comeback

Cherry Festivus – a celebration of cherry beers (and cider) with Woodblock Chocolate will return for Mother’s Day 2019 at Saraveza and the Bad Habit Room. The 4th annual event returns after a one year hiatus when previous venue Bazi Bierbrasserie closed. This year’s event will feature an expanded lineup of cherry beers in a variety of styles from sour Krieks to cherry Imperial Stouts, light cherry wheats to Belgian-style Quads. Woodblock Chocolate will provide bars for pairing and Saraveza will have a special food menu. Best of all, tickets for this event are only $10 or $15 advanced with a chocolate bar included!

After its one year absence, Cherry Festivus expands the lineup with draft beers at Saraveza, a bottle bar outside the tavern and even more taps opening up in the adjacent Bad Habit Room at 3pm. Tickets will be available at the door for $10, and include a collectible branded glass and 2 drink tickets, but if you purchase in advance you get 3 drink tickets and are guaranteed a glass. For $15 secure a glass, 3 drink tickets and a bar of Woodblock Chocolate! Additional drink tickets will be $2.

The Portland Cherry Festivus makes a great excuse to get out on your own, with friends, or your mothers to discover amazing beer and cider. Cherry Festivus will feature a lineup with beers and ciders from De Garde Brewing, Boon, Ex Novo Brewing, Alesong Brewing & Blending, Block 15 Brewing, Urban Family Brewing, Three Magnets Brewing, Little Beast Brewing, Dwinell Country Ales and more. Full taplist and food menu to be announced soon.
