Rye Fest 2015Taplister.com and EastBurn Present the 4th Annual Rye Beer Fest
A Benefit for Dawn to Dusk & Children’s Cancer Association

Portland, OR. – Rye Beer Fest Tap List, Official Beer and Live Music Announced.

The Rye Beer Fest, a celebration of the revival of rye beers, will be held at EastBurn (1800 E. Burnside St., Portland, Oregon) during Portland Beer Week. The fest will take place on Friday June 12th, from 4 p.m. until 2 a.m. and will feature over 20 rye beers.  Profits from this year’s fest will support Dawn to Dusk Paddle Fund for the Children’s Cancer Association.

Each year the festival organizer, Kerry Finsand, likes to assist with brewing one of the beers for the fest. This year Kerry had the privilege of brewing with Lompoc Brewing’s Spencer Gotter. The collaboration beer is called Lemon Rye-zome. They used Soracha Ace hops and Lemongrass in this summer inspired brew.
