Portland, OR (October 18, 2017) – It’s the time of year as we here at BREWPUBLIC celebrate our anniversary with our annual Killer Beer Week from October 20-29, 2017. As BREWPUBLIC turns 10 years old next year, we bring you, our devoted readers, 10 days of Killer Beer Week to close out our ninth year.
If you’ve ever attended a BREWPUBLIC Killer Beer Week you know that we love to get creative. Our motto has always been and remains “Yeast, Malt, and the Pursuit of Hoppiness”! Great beer, great people, lots of fun, and this year we have lined up 10 Portland area events that bring our love of craft beer to the forefront.
For BREWPUBLIC’s 2017 edition of KBW we have 10 days of special beer events lined up. This year we return with many of our popular events along with a few new ones at a couple of new locations around the Portland area. So, without further adieu, here’s the venue line up for our 9th anniversary celebration a.k.a. Killer Beer Week 2017.
Killer Beer Summit

Killer Case of the Mondays
Monday, October 23

Lombard House will help get us through the dreaded start of the workweek with a Killer Case of the Mondays. Publican Brian Koch will open his pub on a Monday (normally its closed on Mondays) and will serve some killer beers from Little Beast and more while watching some football on the television. Since Brian is a big Philly fan, Lombard House has become a gathering place for Eagles fans. On this Monday night the Eagles will take on the Washington Redskins.
Killer Matt Fest + Cribbage
Tuesday, October 24
The BeerMongers – 1125 SE Division – Portland, OR
With our revolving yearly event of Name Fest shenanigans, 2017 will be the year of Matt. Back in 2011 BREWPUBLIC’s Angelo De Ieso decided that there were a rather significant number of brewers named Ben. So, Ben Fest was brought to life. Since that fateful day at the Grain and Gristle it was decided that other packs of similarly named craft beer personnel were in need of their own special days. Sean Fest, Mike Fest, Chuck Fest, Chris Fest and Dave Fest followed. This year we honor the Matt’s of the craft beer world with this special night at The BeerMongers. Look for beers and appearances from brewers named Matt from Alesong, Double Mountain, Hopworks Urban Brewery, Pint’s, Rogue and more!
Tuesday night is also the weekly night of cribbage at The BeerMongers. Cribbage game boards will be available but if you have a lucky one from home feel free to bring it along.
