C’mon Transplants, Let’s Make Founders Feel At Home!
Wed. Feb. 8th, 4pm: Yes! Yes! Yes! One of the Midwest’s favorite and most acclaimed breweries is making its debut in Portland. You’ll start to see their beers on shelves in early February. This should wet your whistle for Saraveza’s explosion of Founders Brewing on Wednesday, Feb. 8th!
Saraveza will have some usual suspects and barrel-aged beers on draft paired with Founders’ co-founder Mike Stephens and some additional Founders big wigs and brewery reps. It’s our job to make this Midwest group feel at home here in Portland. Let’s welcome this crew and one of America’s founding craft breweries to town with style. Stay till 8pm when the Brewvana bus will swing by and take you to East Burn to continue on with the festivities.
Here’s our draft line-up on Wed. Feb. 8th:
Frootwood - Cherry ale aged in bourbon & maple syrup oak barrels.
Azacca IPA - Made with Azacca hop (citrus and mango) and a touch of caramel malt.
Lizard of KoZ - Imperial stout brewed with fresh Michigan blueberries, rich chocolate and vanilla aged in bourbon barrels.
Rubaeus - A raspberry ale and a Founders flagship.
All Day IPA - Founders kingpin IPA.
Centennial IPA - Centennial based with malty undertones. Sweet, juicy and not too bitter.
Porter - Cozy like velvet. It’s a lover, not a fighter.
Red’s Rye IPA - Best super fresh and that’s how we’ll be pouring it! Amarillo dry hop, imported Belgian caramel malts and a generous addition of rye malt.
We won’t let you go home empty handed. In addition to the swag Founders will be bringing, Saraveza will have package of: Breakfast Stout, Backwoods, Dirty Bastard, Imperial Stout, Lizard of Koz, Frootwood, All Day, Rubaeus, Centennial, Porter and Azacca.

Thur. Jan. 19th. 5pm: We’ll be tapping “Altogetherness” in honor of the following day’s presidential inauguration. This lager was collaborative brew between Widmer Bros. and 54-40’ that was distinctly created with unity. On this day we raise a glass and celebrate coming together, not pulling apart.
