Roadhouse Brewfest - July 19, 2014

Rule Number 3: Be nice.

Seriously, who doesn't love "Road House"? In my opinion, "Dalton the Bouncer" is Patrick Swayze's greatest role. Don't come 'round here talkin' 'bout "Ghost" or (gag) "Dirty Dancing". Those films are for girls! No, "Road House" is EPIC...


Okay, maybe not quite as epic as I remember, but it was an awesome flick. Hey, talking about roadhouses... (How's that for a horribly contrived segue? Huh?) Did you know that McMenamins has a roadhouse in Hillsboro? Well, they do, and they just so happen to be putting on a beer festival this month! Awesome!

Taking place at Imbrie Meadow, the Roadhouse Brewfest is a day of great beer, live music, family activities and food. Sip brews from McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse Brewery, John Barleycorns Brewery and Oak Hills Brewery, and from their friends at Three Mugs Brewing Company, Heater Allen, Ambacht Brewing, Vertigo Brewing, Golden Valley Brewery and Two Kilts Brewing Co. Guests are invited to tour the brewery and distillery, chat with enthusiastic brewers and distillers (don’t forget to collect your passport stamp!), and wander the six-acre former farmstead, a colorful oasis with buildings and barns dating back to the mid-1850s. On the grounds you’ll also find Imbrie Hall Pub, which was built from original timbers from Portland’s Henry Weinhard’s brewery. See the full list of beers available for tasting here.
