Downloadable Pamphlet, Cool Beers, Food And More
In preparation for this year’s Portland Farmhouse and Wild Ale Fest, here’s some good information:
DOWNLOADABLE PAMPHLET: We’ve made a big decision to go pamphletless at the fest this year. In an effort to be environmentally conscious yet still provide the people with all the beers available throughout the weekend, we’ve compiled a list that you can view and print HERE. (This list will be posted at the event as well.)
FOOD: In the tent we’ll have some food options made especially for the fest: Roasted Chicken Salad Sandwich, Meat & Cheese Plate and a Cheese Plate. Food will be for purchase with cash or a credit card. Saraveza’s kitchen will also be open and serving its regular menu.
PARKING: Take advantage of fest parking in the lot across Killingsworth Street from Saraveza.
Logsdon “Saraveza Sour”: A fest exclusive, this single, unblended barrel brewed in the style of “Methode van Lembeek” is available at the fest and for bottle purchases to take home!
Benedictine Brewery: Beers made by monks! These beers are not usually found outside of the Mt. Angel Abbey. It’s an honor to pour these special brews.
Level Brewing/Upright “Phantom Ghost”: Portland farmhouse classic brewery, Upright paired up with the highly anticipated Level Brewing to make this collab. Level is expected to open sometime in Spring 2017 and is the brainchild of local beer legends Geoff Phillips (Bailey’s), Jason Barbee (Deschutes, Ex Novo) and Shane Watterson (Laurelhurst).
Little Beast: Logsdon’s founding brewer, Chuck Logsdon is debuting beers from his new brewery, Little Beast.
Wolf Tree “2015 BA Spruce Tip (w/ Brett): Wolf Tree Brewing is one to watch in 2017. Recently taking a gold at the Oregon Beer Awards for their Spruce Tip ale, this Seal Rock brewery needs to be on everyone’s must try list.
And there are so, so, so many more. Here, take a peek!

TUES. MARCH 14th
5:30pm: Q&A, swag give away.
Question: If I drink “Two Flowers IPA,” will I pass a drug test? Answer: Yes. There is no THC (the psychoactive element found in marijuana) in this beer. Only CBD and hemp oil.
Question: Will I get high if I drink this beer? Answer: No, but you will feel the effects of the CBD. It will feel more like you’ve been relaxing in a hot tub with a, you guessed it, beer.
These questions and more answered by Coalition Brewing after we tap “Two Flowers IPA,” the first commercially produced Cannobidoil (CBD) Hemp infused beer in Oregon on Tuesday, March 13th.
With this breakthrough beer, Coalition hopes to encompass a true collaboration of these true “kissing cousings,” hops and cannabis.
