Base Camp’s CollaboFest Returns For Third Year
Last night I had the opportunity to preview the beers for Saturday’s Collabofest presented by Base Camp Brewing, and I was not disappointed. I tried a majority of the beers and felt a few beers stood out. Gigantic Brewing’s Nevørmind Oyster Stout and Ruse Brewing’s Astral Frequency. On Saturday I look forward to trying all of the collaborations.
The Collabofest is Saturday, January 28th at Base Camp’s brewhouse and taproom in southeast Portland (930 SE Oak Street) from 2 pm to 8 pm (1pm-8pm for VIP’s)
General Admission ticket includes a festival mug, a Collabofest beer passport, and eight tasting tickets! - $27.40
VIP tickets include a festival branded Miir stainless pint, a Collabofest beer passport, eight tasting tickets, early entry at 1 pm to meet the brewers, and a pint of your favorite collabobrew! - $43.33
