On August 24th, Ex Novo Brewing will host their 2nd annual “Lagerhosen,” a mini-fest celebration of Lagers from 12-9pm at their original Portland pub. This years event will feature more breweries than before with more activities and specials.
More from a press release:
Ex Novo has invited 21 top tier breweries with over 20 GABF medals in Lager categories alone from the Northwest, New Mexico, and beyond. Each brewery will have their own table and dedicated tap to pour their amazing lagerbiers, and will have representatives there to chat about their take on the style. Ex Novo will also be pouring 7 lagers of their own, including the popular Perle Haggard Pilsner and Most Interesting Lager in the World.
Food specials throughout the day will be available for purchase and will focus on traditional German fare. Regular food menu items will also be available.
For $20, attendees will receive a custom Lagerhosen mug to keep, and 8 wooden nickels each good for a 12cL pour at any table. Additional wooden nickels will be available to purchase for $1. Come early from Noon-1pm and meet the brewers or brewery staff at their tables! Tickets available here:
