Come one, come all, from Friday June 7th to Sunday June 9th, the Weird Beer Bonanza rolls into Portland and takes over Imperial Bottle Shop on Alberta Street! You will be amused by the mysterious, speculate the strange, ponder the peculiar, be astonished by the abnormal, fawn over the freakish, and most importantly… drink some weird-ass beer!!! As part of your Portland Beer Week, be a little daring and try some brews that strayed from the beaten path to scintillate your taste buds with the weirdest of ingredients and brewing methods.

The Weird Beer Bonanza commemorative drinking jar costs a mere $5 (or bring last year’s jar). Drink tickets are $2.00 each or 10 for $15! All weird beers will also be available via our standard pricing for pours and sampler trays.
