Portland Beer Week and Wayfinder Beer are bringing back an old popular pairing event previously held at The Hop & Vine with the help of Nicky Farms. The Brewers Burger Brawl originally debuted as one of the first Portland Beer Week events but was later held in the summer, by the late great Hop & Vine pub and bottleshop on N. Killingsworth. The newly revamped Burger Brawl is a lunchtime, ticketed event that pits four brewers against each other for their best burger recipe and beer pairing on Wednesday, June 12th with 1130am and 130pm seatings.
The Brewers Burger Brawl is one of a few recently announced 2019 Portland Beer Week events that are now on sale, including the Portland Beer and Cheese Fest and the official closing event Snackdown. Portland Beer Week is June 7-16th, 2019 with more events being constantly updated at https://www.facebook.com/PDXBeerWeek/
The 2019 Brewers Burger Brawl competitors include the host Wayfinder Beer, versus Von Ebert Brewing, Stormbreaker Brewing and pFriem Family Brewers. Each participant will cook their own giant slider sized burger at grill stations in front of the brewery. Each ticket holder gets a plate with all four burgers and 5oz pours of each breweries beer, plus complimentary Wayfinder fries and Salt & Straw ice cream. Additional beers will be available for purchase at the bar.
