Bigger Badder Blacker Week
Tuesday, Jan. 21-Monday, Jan. 27

Our annual trek to The Dark Side returns once again during the short days and long nights of winter with really rare, big, luscious brews to enjoy!  But charting your course through Bigger Badder Blacker Week ain't like dustin' crops, boy! That's why we have put together a list of features for each day so you can plan your visits accordingly. We still have a few details in the works, too, so keep a watch on our website and check out future newsletters for updates! 

Here's your Bigger Badder Blacker Survival Guide:

1/21/14 - Bigger Badder Blacker Kickoff: We're getting the party started with special offerings from some favorite Oregon breweries:

Block 15 Super Nebula
Full Sail Black Gold Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout 2011
Full Sail Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout 2013
Boneyard Suge Knite
Deschutes Black Butte Porter XXIII 

1/22/14 - Rasputin's Birthday (5-8 PM): The Russian mystic, Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin, would have turned 145 this year, so we are honoring him with a special keg of North Coast Barrel- Aged Old Rasputin VX. We also will be offering a special cheese and beer pairing flight featuring three of Steve Jones' cheeses to pair with the Rasputin XV, Old Stock Barley Wine and Brother Thelonius Belgian Strong Ale. Even better: the first 30 patrons who purchase the cheese & beer pairing flight will get a special Old Rasputin glass to take home. Not a bad way to celebrate a 145th birthday!

1/2 3/14 - California Night featuring Green Flash Brewmaster Chuck Silva (5-8 PM): Chat with Green Flash's Chuck Silva and sip some Silva Stout as we explore the dark side of our southern neighbors. We also will pour The Bruery Cuir Stone Espresso Imperial Russian Stout and Bear Republic Old Baba Yaga 2009.

1/24/14 - Deschutes/Goose Island Class of '88 Party + Bigger Badder Blacker Beers (5-7 PM): To celebrate their concurrent 25th anniversaries, Goose Island and Deschutes brewed  Class of '88 Belgian-Style Ale. And they are launching both versions of their beer right here at Belmont Station during Bigger Badder Blacker Week. While technically not Blacker, with a distinct oak boldness from being barrel-aged, this collabo should be considered Badder (in a good way), and at 10% ABV, it's certainly Bigger! But to sweeten the pot, both breweries are bringing something Blacker to the table. Goose Island will be offering their famous Bourbon County Stout (the only keg in  Oregon that we know of), and Deschutes will bring along their highly acclaimed Black Butte Porter XXIV. Brett Porter, who used to brew for Deschutes, and now brews for Goose Island, will be on hand for the festivities, along with a few of the great folks from Deschutes brewery, too! The biercafe will be CASH ONLY at this event and the beers are available starting at 5 PM.

1/2 5/14 - Import Day: We can't go Bigger Badder and Blacker without enjoying some of the best from other parts of the world. We will be pouring Struise Black Albert, Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Natale and Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break.


1/26/14 - Sunday Funday: That's Midnight Sun and we will be pouring two years' of their Berserker plus, from a state with lots of sun to grow crops, we will be offering Nebraska Brewing's Black Betty Russian Imperial Stout and Sexy Betty, the same RIS aged in cognac barrels.  

1/27/13 - Goose Island Bourbon County Stout Day: A very limited number of bottles of Goose Island Bourbon County Stout and two other rare BCS beers recently was sent to Oregon for the first time in two years. Because of that, and the very high demand for this delicious beer, we want to make it so as many people as possible can enjoy it. So, instead of selling it to the few customers who were lucky enough to make it into the shop first, we will be pouring flights from bottles of the Bourbon County Stout, the Bourbon County Backyard Rye and the Bourbon County Coffee Stout on our last day of Bigger Badder Blacker Week. The flights will be available starting at 5 PM sharp, so come early -- you won't want to miss it!

Orlison Oregon Launch
Tuesdsay, Jan. 28, 5-8 PM
If you haven't heard of Orlison Brewing, don't fret; you will. Brewing exclusively lager beers under the slogan, "Brew No Evil" this Airway Heights, Wash., brewery has been pushing the lager limits and creating award-winning beers. We will be pouring a few of their luscious lagers in the biercafe and holding a tasting of their canned beers in the bottle shop to give them a big Oregon welcome! Watch our website and upcoming newsletters for more.
Breakside Salted Caramel Stout Release
Thursday Jan. 30, 5-8 PM
The highly anticipated return of this dessert-like milk stout promises to be a fun time. Breakside Brewmaster Ben Edmunds and a bunch of his brewery posse will be on hand as we pour the first sips of this year's Salted Caramel Stout. We also will be pouring Breakside's Oude Noire Black Saison with Orange Peel as the perfect complement. The popular Wanderlust IPA will also be on tap for those needing a hop fix. In the bottle shop, brewer Will Jaquiss will be pouring tastes of the full line of Breakside's bottled beers.
Chill Out!
One of the most often-asked questions we get a Belmont Station is whether we can quick-chill a bottle from the shop so it can be enjoyed in our biercafe. And finally, the answer is YES! We recently invested in a nifty Cooper Chiller, which, using a combination of ice, water and a super-fast spinning technique to chill bottles and cans in as little as 3 minutes. How it works without making the contents foamy defies logic, but it does! Come check it out sometime soon and chill out with us!
