News: Oregon: Portland: Lompoc Brewing suspends Chowder Challenge and expands Black Out Beer Fest hours
PORTLAND, Ore ... Lompoc Brewing has announced that its annual Chowder Challenge will take a hiatus this year to address venue and space issues. In its place, the brewery has expanded its popular Black Out Beer Fest to an all-day event.
Admission into the event is free; tasting packages are required to taste the beers and cost $20, which includes a souvenir 15.5 oz glass mug and eight beer tickets. Additional beer tickets are available for $1 apiece. It costs four tickets for a full mug of beer or one ticket for a taste. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Community Transitional School.
Black Out Beer Fest ticket sales will take place at the door in Sidebar; advance tickets are not available. The beers will be served in both Sidebar and in the tented and heated parking lot adjacent to the Fifth Quadrant pub. The event is for ages 21 and over, although minors and attendees are welcome inside the Fifth Quadrant pub.
Follow LompocBrewing.com or @LompocBeer on social media for updates to the beer list.
Lompoc (pronounced Lom-Pock, much to the chagrin of Californians) creates eight flavorful year-round beers, plus a ridiculous number of seasonals. You can find Lompoc in 12-ounce and 22-ounce bottles and on draft at locations in Oregon and Washington, and at its five Portland neighborhood pubs: Fifth Quadrant and Sidebar in North Portland, Hedge House and Oaks Bottom in Southeast, and the Lompoc Tavern in Northwest.
