Jan 21st is the Eighth Annual CellarFest at Bailey’s Taproom
What – CellarFest is a day where Bailey’s pulls out a handful of special kegs that they have been saving for this day of exploration into the fine art of cellaring beer.
Half of the fun of enjoying cellaring beers is seeing what happens to the beers as they have aged over time.
From the CellarFest 2017 Facebook event page – “Oxidation and time are two elements that may allow beers to open up and unveil new flavors. Sometimes, harsher alcohol notes mellow out over the years and we get a product with rounder edges and softer tones. Either way, we love to see how some of our favorite beers change and gain further insight into the lifespan of certain styles & labels.”
Time – CellarFest runs from Noon – Midnight Saturday Jan 21st
Address – Baileys is located at 213 SW Broadway Portland, Oregon

More Info From Bailey’s about CellarFest 2017:
“We debuted CellarFest in the winter of 2010 with the idea of gaining more knowledge about the aging process and cellaring capability of certain beers. We tuck away a handful of kegs yearly that we think will evolve in some way over time.
“Now in it’s 8th year, CellarFest has become one of our most anticipated annual events. This year’s iteration is the official kickoff for our year-long 10 year celebration. Join us for a day of exploration into the fine art of cellaring beer.”
