The Rye Beer Fest, a celebration of the revival of rye beers and will be held at EastBurn (1800 E. Burnside St., Portland, Oregon) on June 10. The fest will take place on Friday June 10th, from 4 p.m. until 2 a.m. and will feature 20 rye beers. The cost of the fest is $10 and includes a glass and four tickets good for 1 beer or 4 (4 ounce) samples. This year we have added a focus on rye whiskey. For $10 get a whiskey back variety card which includes 3 (1/2 once) shots. From 7-9pm don’t miss out on mixologist Jacob Grier creating his the official rye beer fest beer cocktail. Then starting at 10 am live music starts. It is sure to be a good time for a good cause, The Children’s Cancer Association.

Our beer is Holden Caulfield. Modeled after an English Sparkling Ale, this peppery sipper has notes of alienation and cynicism, with a subconscious desire to belong. Our warehouse guy, Jordan, wrote the recipe for this beer incorporating malted and flaked rye, along with some German Vienna malt. He is heavy handed when it comes to the use of Palisade hops and this beer reflects that.
