Brews for New Avenues – Rare Auction Beers for Charity

Brews for New Avenues – Rare Auction Beers for Charity

Brews for New Avenues – a local charity event, is back for their 3rd year on September 6th at a larger venue – The Leftbank Annex. As usual the beer lineup for this event, both rare beers on tap and even rarer bottles available for auction is outstanding and we have a sneak peak at some of them.

Brews for New Avenues is a signature event of the Ambassador Board of New Avenues for Youth. The Ambassador Board is a group of young professionals dedicated to raising awareness about New Avenues in the community, assisting in fundraising for the organization, and fostering the development of future community leaders. Click here to learn more.

Here are the top-10 auction items currently in the Brews lineup:

1) Hair of the Dog – Dave (live)
2) Hill Farmstead (8+ bottles – live)
3) Crooked Stave (18 bottles, mostly Cellar Reserve Members only- live)
4) de Garde (multiple 3L bottles – silent and live)
5) Deschutes – The Abyss (2006-2013 full vertical – live)
6) Grote Dorst van ’t Kasteel 2010 (live)
7) h.ertie Trippel 2013 (silent)
8) The Lost Abbey – Isabelle Proximus (silent)
9) AleSmith – signed Speedway Stout variant set (6 bottles – live)
10) New Glarus (15 bottles – silent)

There are a number of more possibly more special bottles on their way but as they have not been received yet organizers are loathe to reveal them.

Other than that, the format is generally the same as last year, but it is being held at the Leftbank Annex

VIP 2-5p (SOLD OUT); limited to 100 people, silent auction, rare kegs (Cantillon Iris will be on tap at 2 when we open), Cheeses from Cheese Bar and charcuterie from Olympic Provisions.

General Admission 5-10:30p; $10 gets you a mug, beer, and raffle ticket; additional beer tickets are $5; live auction (see above for some of them, but there should be 6-8 items total once we receive everything), bands, food carts; we will also be showing the Ducks vs. Michigan State game (the second half should start right around when GA starts). Also, for the first time this year, we will have a silent auction during the GA event. The silent items indicated in the list above will likely be at VIP only, but one thing I can tell you will be available during the GA silent auction is a full Firestone Walker Parabola vertical (2010-2014) and some Bruery Reserve Society stuff. We also have the Wall of Beer back this year and improved: $10 lets you select an item from the wall (numbered in paper bags) and you’ll get a limited, vintage, and/or out of market craft beer to take home. Limited to 2/bottles/person/hour (we will be refreshing the wall about every hour) in order to allow as many people who don’t normally trade for or cellar beer to get something as possible.

Beer Hall: Brews For New Avenues, Organic Beer Fest, IIPA Fest, and the Sour Beer Summit

Even in a global craft beer market which favors real, local brews and the highest possible quality, Portland stands alone.

We are the only place on earth to host an organic brewers festival, the best at raising massive amounts of cash for at-risk youth with rare-bottle purchases, and the most willing to celebrate the quality of our hoppy ales by inviting other national competitors for a blind taste test.

Yep, it's always an awesome time to live in Beervana.

The only known organic beer festival in the world returns for a 12th year, promising to save the world with each sip of sustainable alcohol—55 beers, meads and ciders, including weirdball ale made with foraged Chaga mushrooms and a hemp shandy. Kids get free soda from Crater Lake, if you bring them. A "reusable, compostable cornstarch cup" goes for $7, with tastes a buck apiece thereafter, plus a free token if you rode a bus or bike. Overlook Park, 1599 N Fremont St. 12-9 pm August 25-27, 12-5 pm August 28. Free .

Goose Island Non Migration Week

Goose Island is migrating to Eugene instead of Portland for its annual Migration Week—but fuck it. N.W.I.P.A. is tapping a ton of Goose Island anyway, with IPA, Sofie, Lolita, '15 Bourbon County Stout Coffee and '14 Bourbon County Stout Vanilla Rye. But perhaps most importantly, there will be Chicago-style dogs made with Portland-style Olympia Provisions franks. N.W.I.P.A., 6350 SE Foster Rd. 6-9 pm. Free.

Roscoe's Sour Beer Summit

Roscoe's annual celebration of sour beers kicks off this Friday, bringing fresh sour ales from acclaimed breweries like Crooked Stave, Allagash, and Rodenbach from keg to tap for the whole weekend. With such an incredible assortment of pucker-inducing selections, we suspect the neighborhood's sales of Tums will skyrocket. Roscoe's, 8105 SE Stark St. 2 pm August 26, 11 am-2:30 am August 27-28.

Brews for New Avenues

Brews for New Avenues is one of our favorite charity events of the year. It's the world's largest rare-beer auction—think Cantillon—with special one-off collaborations among premium brewers, plenty of beer tappings and appetizers for the crowd, oysters and all sorts of other wonderful things, all of which to benefit homeless or at-risk kids. It's sold out six ways to Sunday, but they'll open up a few tickets at the door. Check brewsfornewavenues.com for details. Left Bank Annex, 101 N Weidler St. 5-10:30 pm. Sold Out.

Now in its seventh year, Saraveza's celebration of strong hoppy beers continues with fresh selections from Great Notion, Fat Heads, and even a purpose-brewed beer from Fort George. With double beef burgers and a Berlinerweisse oasis for the palate-fatigued, there's plenty to look forward to here. Saraveza, 1004 N Killingsworth St. 1-9 pm August 27-28. $20 for a commemorative glass and 5 drink tickets.

Five states enter. Four will leave looking like chumps. As they've done in Bend for five years, 10 Barrel is inviting breweries from five different states—Colorado, California, Washington, Oregon and Idaho—to bring out their IPAs, and everybody who shows up blind-tastes the beers. Best state owns it all. Last year's winner was Oregon—and this year's entrants are 10 Barrel, Barley Brown's, Boneyard, Breakside, Buoy and Deschutes. Even with Fat Head's, Great Notion and Culmination out of the running, we predict a repeat. $5 admission, $1 per taste. 10 Barrel Brewing, 1411 NW Flanders St. 5 pm. $5.

Parker Hall is a writer, musician, and home brewer from Portland. He is a graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio, where he studied jazz percussion with drum legend Billy Hart (Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock). Now a freelance writer and professional member of the city's jazz and indie rock scenes, he spends most of his days writing, playing music or drinking brews in his spacious North Portland basement.

Even in a global craft beer market which favors real, local brews and the highest possible quality, Portland stands alone.

We are the only place on earth to host an organic brewers festival, the best at raising massive amounts of cash for at-risk youth with rare-bottle purchases, and the most willing to celebrate the quality of our hoppy ales by inviting other national competitors for a blind taste test.

Yep, it's always an awesome time to live in Beervana.

The only known organic beer festival in the world returns for a 12th year, promising to save the world with each sip of sustainable alcohol—55 beers, meads and ciders, including weirdball ale made with foraged Chaga mushrooms and a hemp shandy. Kids get free soda from Crater Lake, if you bring them. A "reusable, compostable cornstarch cup" goes for $7, with tastes a buck apiece thereafter, plus a free token if you rode a bus or bike. Overlook Park, 1599 N Fremont St. 12-9 pm August 25-27, 12-5 pm August 28. Free .

Goose Island Non Migration Week

Goose Island is migrating to Eugene instead of Portland for its annual Migration Week—but fuck it. N.W.I.P.A. is tapping a ton of Goose Island anyway, with IPA, Sofie, Lolita, '15 Bourbon County Stout Coffee and '14 Bourbon County Stout Vanilla Rye. But perhaps most importantly, there will be Chicago-style dogs made with Portland-style Olympia Provisions franks. N.W.I.P.A., 6350 SE Foster Rd. 6-9 pm. Free.

Roscoe's Sour Beer Summit

Roscoe's annual celebration of sour beers kicks off this Friday, bringing fresh sour ales from acclaimed breweries like Crooked Stave, Allagash, and Rodenbach from keg to tap for the whole weekend. With such an incredible assortment of pucker-inducing selections, we suspect the neighborhood's sales of Tums will skyrocket. Roscoe's, 8105 SE Stark St. 2 pm August 26, 11 am-2:30 am August 27-28.

Brews for New Avenues

Brews for New Avenues is one of our favorite charity events of the year. It's the world's largest rare-beer auction—think Cantillon—with special one-off collaborations among premium brewers, plenty of beer tappings and appetizers for the crowd, oysters and all sorts of other wonderful things, all of which to benefit homeless or at-risk kids. It's sold out six ways to Sunday, but they'll open up a few tickets at the door. Check brewsfornewavenues.com for details. Left Bank Annex, 101 N Weidler St. 5-10:30 pm. Sold Out.

Now in its seventh year, Saraveza's celebration of strong hoppy beers continues with fresh selections from Great Notion, Fat Heads, and even a purpose-brewed beer from Fort George. With double beef burgers and a Berlinerweisse oasis for the palate-fatigued, there's plenty to look forward to here. Saraveza, 1004 N Killingsworth St. 1-9 pm August 27-28. $20 for a commemorative glass and 5 drink tickets.

Five states enter. Four will leave looking like chumps. As they've done in Bend for five years, 10 Barrel is inviting breweries from five different states—Colorado, California, Washington, Oregon and Idaho—to bring out their IPAs, and everybody who shows up blind-tastes the beers. Best state owns it all. Last year's winner was Oregon—and this year's entrants are 10 Barrel, Barley Brown's, Boneyard, Breakside, Buoy and Deschutes. Even with Fat Head's, Great Notion and Culmination out of the running, we predict a repeat. $5 admission, $1 per taste. 10 Barrel Brewing, 1411 NW Flanders St. 5 pm. $5.
