When: 04/23/2016| 12-5pm

Where: Baerlic Brewing | Portland, OR


Saturday, April 23rd is Baerlic Brewing‘s 1st Annual Reinheitsge-Not Beer Fest. We’ll be Celebrating Ingredient Freedom with 13+ Northwest breweries! Urban German will be slinging brats and our friend DJ Short Change will be laying down the tunes.

Reinheitsgebot? More like Reinheitsge-Not!

April 23, 2016 marks the 500 year anniversary of The German Beer Purity Law of 1516.  Also called the Reinheitsgebot, this law states that beer can ONLY be made from Water, Barley, Hops and Yeast. But that’s just boring! So Baerlic Brewing pulled together some of their favorite brewery friends in the Northwest to celebrate the world’s oldest beer rules by brewing beers that break them. Come drink beers brewed beyond Water, Malt Hops and Yeast! Let’s Celebrate Ingredient Freedom!
