With a title that sounds like it should be a romantic comedy starring Julia Roberts and a suitably generic leading man, Beer.Cider.Love is an event that celebrates the passionate pairings of exceptional food with beer and cider.

Beer.Cider.Love brings together two of the Northwest’s premiere craft beverage producers, the Ft. George Brewery of Astoria, Oregon and the Finnriver Farm and Cidery of Chimacum, Washington. Hosting this event is The Brooklyn House restaurant of Portland.

The purpose of this second-annual gathering is to showcase the products of Ft. George and Finnriver in combination with the farm-to-table, European-style, comfort food of The Brooklyn House.

Five courses, all locally sourced, will be served that will each pair a beer from Ft. George and a cider from Finnriver with selected items from The Brooklyn House menu. Beginning with a cheese plate and finishing with chocolate tort, this is one event that is sure to bring in rave reviews.

Tim Ensign of Ft. George will offer the Quick Wit Belgianesque ale, the Vortex IPA, and the Cavatica Stout. Finnriver’s Jana Daisy-Ensign brings the Finnriver Artisan Champagne Style Cider, the Raspberry Brandywine, the Fire Barrel Bourbon Barrel Aged Cider, and the Finnriver Cacao Brandywine.
