Awwww, the best thing about winter is certainly the big, bold beers that warm us and the Holiday Ale Festival is a community celebration of these warming winter ales. Held in the heart of the city, in Pioneer Courthouse Square, this festival showcases unique winter warmers in a cozy setting. Our head brewer, Matt Lincoln, has hand blended a special beer just for the festival - Mexican Hot Chocolate Imperial Stout with Coffee. We give this to you, beer drinkers of Portland, to fend off the cold and warm your dark days. Cheers!
