A Special Evening with Hair of the Dog Brewing & Sneak Peek at Our Newly Remodeled Bad Habit Room!
Sunday, September 23, 2012
Saturday, October 6th, 6PM: As many of you are aware, one of Portland’s (and the rest of anywhere’s) finest brewers, Hair of the Dog’s Alan Sprints, was invited to participate in a special collaboration with world-class Belgian brewery, DeProef, this year. The result of this meeting has been the delightfully round and layered Flemish-Style Sour Red that is “Flanders Fred,” which made a limited run here in Portland with bottles and even harder to find draught pours for the pleasantly pleased palates of the HOD faithful.
“Flanders Fred” is a blend of HOD’s classic strong golden ale, “Fred” (named in honor of Portland’s own venerable “Dean of American Beer Writers,” Fred Eckhardt), and a special “Publican’s Cuvée” from Bockor (released only for special events such as this). The outcome is something not to be missed and thanks to our friend, Tim Ensign and his booming new brand management company, Powered By Yeast, this evening’s festivities will not only showcase “Flanders Fred” on tap, but also “Fred” and the “Publican’s Cuvée”. This will allow guests to taste the base components and create their own versions of this beautiful blend themselves.
...If that’s not enough, the newly luxurious Bad Habit Room is putting an additional spin on this event with the rare opportunity for guests to purchase 4oz pours from very special vintage Hair of the Dog bottles from over the years. That’s right, folks, we’re pulling up some of Sarah’s special bottles from the cellar and my oh my, are they in prime condition for an indulgent quaffing…
So, please join us for what’s sure to be a very special evening in what’s become quite an elegant space (even if it does have the heart of a jezebel)…our Bad Habit Room. See you there.
