Thursday Getaway: Collabofest

January 28 2016

This weekend, you'll find us in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Rain or shine, we'll be imbibing alongside Portlanders at the second annual Collabofest, sponsored by Base Camp Brewing. The spirit of the event is in its name; collaboration among some of the best craft breweries is what it's all about, which is why the event will feature 16 breweries, as well as two cideries, as they collaborate to create new innovative brews and ciders. The event organizers wanted to provide a high-quality, sustainable solution for their VIP participants while they sample all of these collaboration brews, so we were happy to add some Klean Kanteen class to the occasion! All VIP attendees will receive a stainless steel pint to sip (or chug) their tasty samples from while they take in this one-of-a-kind event. 

This year, Collabofest is also supporting two local Oregon non-profits, including the Oregon Natural Desert Association and Oregon Brewshed Alliance. The focus will be on sending funds and support to help protect the Oywhee Canyonlands and Oregon watersheds in an effort to keep local lands protected and Oregon beer clean! 

We'll be there this weekend, not only to support the sustainability of the event, but to celebrate the brewing community of Portland and the creativity that can come from collaborations like this. Join us, and get your tickets here! See you in Portland.
