About Spring Sour Slam Invitational

Spring Sour Slam Invitational

The largest of McMenamins' breweries, the Edgefield Brewery opened in 1991 in the old cannery building of the former Multnomah County Poor Farm. There's a lot of history on these grounds that's believed to fuel the flow of creativity. This team produces beer of impressive quality, stunning imagination and in grand volume. Come meet the Brewers and bring your curiosity as they're a communal wealth of knowledge. Enjoy this one time offering because when it's gone, it will be no more.

This event is an Official Limited Edition Beer Tasting! You can obtain an experience stamp, getting you one step closer to a $20 gift card, if you've purchased the Passport Insert that allows for additional experience stamps.

About Tropic Heat Sour

Tropic Tart is a kettle-soured ale brewed with pink guava puree, coconut and habanero peppers. The heat contribution from the peppers is very minimal and creates a pleasant backround quality that lingers. This slight spiciness accentuates the fruity, full guava taste that is this beer's foundation. Coconut was also added to pleasantly blend all of the fine flavors together.
