Join me on May 4 2019 from 3 until 11 pm for my fifth annual Night of 1000 Tepaches! (What is tepache? Read below.)
(Facebook user? Event is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/2269453753334228/)
I’ve partnered with 19 craft producers throughout Oregon and Washington to collaborate on Tepache blends to create an incredibly diverse set of flavors. Expect Belgian sours blended with Tepache, crisp pilsners blended with Tepache and dark stouts blended with Tepache.
Check out this excellent list of local breweries!
- GREAT NOTION
- ARCH ROCK
- OLD TOWN
- WIDMER BROTHERS
- EX NOVO
- GRAINS OF WRATH
- VON EBERT
- LITTLE BEAST
- ENSO WINERY
Now for the first time, I’ve expanded beyond Oregon to include two of my favorite breweries in Washington:
- THREE MAGNETS
And while I’m doing firsts, why not collaborate with some non-alcohol beverage producers to create some very low alcohol blends?
- HAPPY MOUNTAIN KOMBUCHA
- GROUNDWORKS COFFEE
- PORTLAND SODA WORKS
But enjoying Tepache blends isn’t the only activity on tap for the evening:
- I’ve hired in my favorite Korean-Mexican food truck, KOI FUSION, to provide nourishment to everyone.
- My friend DJ JIMBO will be spinning records from 6 to 9 PM.
And back by popular demand is my Beer-and-Tepache Blending Bottle Share starting at 8 PM. Entry to the Bottle Share requires one bottle of beer, cider, wine or what-have-you (no liquor please) that you believe will be a great combination with Tepache. I’ll provide all the Tepache, you bring the mixers! In years past, we’ve had such crazy beers as Westvleteren, 3 Floyds Dark Lord, Russian River sours, Heady Topper and more.
I could not be more excited about another party to celebrate Tepache, the Mexican wild-fermented pineapple drink that I first made in 2014. In the intervening five years, the rest of the world hasn’t quite caught on as much as they should, considering the deliciousness and versatility of this unusual beverage. Please join me!
Tickets are available at the door. $25 gets you a commemorative tasting glass and 10 tokens. Additional tasting tokens are available for purchase.
Doors open at 3 pm and please note that my Taproom will NOT be open prior to 3 pm on this very special day.
Oh! and please use hashtag #1000Tepaches on social media for this event!
