Tomorrow: Brews for New Avenues (BFNA)

Who’s in Portland this weekend?  Would love to see this even hit capacity!

PORTLAND, OREGON: – Some of Oregon’s most sought-after beers will be at the third annual Brews for New Avenues (BFNA), the nonprofit beer event that hosts Portland’s only live auction of unique craft beers. Oregon breweries and private collectors are partnering with New Avenues for Youth’s ambassador board to produce an all-star auction list that is garnering national attention from beer writers and enthusiasts, including Hair of the Dog’s Dave (single bottles sell for $2,000 at other auctions), three bottles from de Garde and Deschutes’ The Abyss (2006 – 2013 full vertical). The full list of beers can be viewed at!2014-event/c4ww

Brews for New Avenues will have on tap over 40 international and domestic craft beer kegs, including Cantillon’s Iris and de Struise’s Imperialist, alongside Cascade’s Honey Ginger Lime, Upright’s Engelberg and 10 Barrel’s Uberlliner (an imperial version of “German Sparkle Party Berlinerweisse” and has never been sold in the Portland market). This year, Brews will also feature a bigger, better “Wall of Beer,” where event attendees can donate $10 and select one mystery bottle. Some bottles will be rare, others just delicious. Additional highlights include beer-centric raffle items, chocolate stout beer floats, food carts (People’s Pig and Pulehu Pizza) and live music (The Get Ahead and The Sentiments).
