2015 Urban Beer Hunt Comes to Portland

On Saturday, October 10th, grab your favorite costume and a group of friends and join us for the Portland 2015 Urban Beer Hunt.

The Urban Beer Hunt is a 21 and over, rain or shine, 3 - 5 mile scavenger hunt that is simultaneously a race to the finish line.

Teams of two to ten people will receive clues via text messages to solve puzzles, participate in beer challenges, and race to a “mystery location” (aka the finish line).

Although the hunt is a “race,” participants have the option to travel by city bus or by foot. 

Of course, it wouldn’t be a race worth running if prizes weren’t involved. Keeping the runners on their toes, the Urban Beer Hunt gives participants the chance to win prizes or money based off their ranking. The top ten finishing teams win. 

Some of the things participants will want to bring are a cell phone, an internet connected device, a street map or GPS, a digital camera, five individual $1 bills per player, water, and tickets to the event.

Whether you win or lose, the Urban Beer Hunt will be a great way to kick off the fall season. 

Purchase tickets HERE.

Upright Brewing Oyster Stout

Oyster Stout sounds strange, right? Just imagine your stout with a salty kick and a mineral taste at the end. It turns out to be very flavorful, time tested concoction. Locally, Upright Brewing makes a tasty one in their seasonal portfolio and looks like it will be released shortly after the first of the year.

Rogue Ales Beard Beer

While most beer is brewed with carefully cultivated yeast strains, there are any number of wild yeasts that can be used, though this one is decidedly the strangest.  Somehow Rogue Brewer John Maier “discovered” a natural yeast ideal for brewing in his beard. Yuck. Stylistically, an “American Wild Ale, if you are really interested in trying it yourself, you can buy a bottle here.

Wynkoop Brewery Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout

What started – and should have ended – as an April Fools’ Day prank led to the release of Wynkoop Brewery’s Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout. They only sell it in two packs. Get it? I won’t suggest where you might buy this one, dear reader, because I like you and would not do that to you.

Rogue Ales Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale 

Rogue Ales Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale has been on the market for a while and is ubiquitous in Portland, as are the other mistakes they brewed to taste like Portland’s biggest tourist trap’s products. Good for Rogue for hopping on the tourist bandwagon by partnering with Voodoo Doughnuts on this uniquely Portland beer. This beer drinker has to admit that drinking this beer forced me to admit that not everything is actually better with bacon.

Evil Twin Turkish Delight

Me: What does Turkish Delight taste like?

Beer store clerk: Um, it tastes like Turkish Delight.

Me: Um, okay. What is Turkish Delight?

Clerk: Just try it.

Tastes like put coffee and cardamom in my darker ale. Nuff said? I’m not chomping at the bit to try either Turkish Delight or the Evil Twin’s Turkish Delight beer again. It is available locally at Belmont Station if you are interested.

Bison Brewing Organic Gingerbread Ale

Ginger. Nutmeg. Cinnamon. No I’m not talking about a dessert or even a hot beverage but Bison Brewing’s Organic Gingerbread Ale. Somehow, it works to create a great flavored porter. Yum. Rumor has it that John’s Market still has a few sixers of this one left.

Rogue Ales Sriracha Stout

Apparently 2014 was the Year of the Rooster, with millions more discovering Sriracha, a simple staple in Vietnamese restaurants (and a product that has stayed stocked in my fridge since at least 2005). Never one to miss hopping on a bandwagon, Rogue Ales brewed a stout with it. Shocking, right? It tastes exactly like you’d expect: like someone pranked you by sneaking some hot sauce into your otherwise tasty stout when you went to the loo. The only place to find this gem is at Rogue Hall until more is released after the first of the year.
