About IPA Invasion VI Brewfest
McMenamins brewers will lead tours of the onsite brewery from 12 noon ’til 6 p.m. on the hour, so see just how the IPA and other brewing magic happens.
All hail, Mighty Columbia! We raise a pint (or four or five) of India Pale Ale to thee!
Set on the banks of the lovely river at the McMenamins on the Columbia pub, this beer gathering pays homage to IPAs hopped to the gill and sometimes quite high in alcohol content. Mmmm.... First brewed in England in the 18th century, IPA is a popular style of beer among American craft brewers, most notably here in the Pacific Northwest where our hops are abundant.
So settle in at one of the pub's outdoor tables (or indoors if it's a bit gloomy out), set yourself up with a selection of freshly brewed McMenamins IPAs handcrafted specifically for the occasion and just let the world float on by you...
We’ll have six McMenamins IPAs for you to sample, handcrafted at our fellow McMenamins Washington breweries: East Vancouver, Queen Anne, Six Arms, and Mill Creek; and at our own McMenamins on the Columbia Brewery, as well as at McMenamins Edgefield Brewery.
We also welcome our three guest IPAs on tap for the occasion, from: Mt. Tabor Brewing, Loowit Brewing Company and 10 Barrel Brewing Company.
Order up taster trays of three of your choice of this array of beers within the hop-forward IPA style.
