SNACKDOWN! a Brewer/Chef Pairing Party
Sun, Jun 17, 2018 from 1pm - 4pm
Portland Beer Week & Gigantic Brewing present SNACKDOWN! on Sunday June 17th at The Evergreen event space above Loyal Legion. SNACKDOWN! is a fun and entertaining food and beer pairing event where 10 of Portland's best Chefs and 10 Oregon Brewers are paired into 10 Brewer/Chef teams to make their greatest snack and beer pairing. Guests will choose their favorite pairing and the winners will be awarded the SNACKDOWN Belt!
This event is designed to be more fun and loose than you're standard beer dinner. Imagine a WWF style Smackdown with brewers and chefs hyping their pairing on the mic - possibly while sporting wrestling themed costume. DJ Rev Shines will be on the decks keeping the party live. $49 includes all 10 small plates and TEN 5oz beer pours + a collectible glass. All proceeds after expenses go to P:EAR
Join us for great beer, great food and a real party!
SNACKDOWN! Is the official closing event of Portland Beer Week.
