Friends, we are proud and excited to announce The New School 5th Anniversary New Years Eve Party to take place at Bazi Bierbrasserie at 1522 SE 32nd on, you guessed it – New Year’s Eve. This is a big milestone for us and it’s been an amazing five years with especially big changes in 2014 that included our big website redesign and adding a number of great new contributors like Mike Sardina, Michael O’ Connor and John Chilson. In celebration we are having our biggest blowout party yet from 7pm – 1am on December 31st we will be rocking 10 special taps at Bazi with rare beers and a cider as well as raffling off all sorts of prizes and food from guest chef Paul Kasten. Advanced tickets are $5 and all proceeds from this event will go to charity – Guide Dogs for the Blind.
Special thanks to “El Gordo” the New School’s ever trusty editor who provides an invaluable service, also to the continued great contributions from Bend correspondent Branden Andersen and columnist Brian Yaeger as well as Corey Weddington who is responsible for our new website and keeping things working.
Beer and Cider List (so far):
Block 15: Cuvee Rouge 2013
Flanders inspired red ale matured in oak brandy barrels. Open fermented with our special blend of brewer’s yeast, two brettanomyces, and acid producing bacteria. A blend of five barrels matured 15 & 25 months in our wild cellar. Wonderfully complex malt body, aroma, and flavor with a balanced sour finish.
Burnside Brewing: Carribean Chutney
A one-off wheat beer with the addition of Apricots, Scotch Bonnet Chilis, fresh Lime, Thyme leaves, Red and Yellow peppers, black peppercorn and diced Cucumbers.
The Commons: Dark Czar
An Imperial Stout and Baltic Porter blend with Stumptown Guatemala Finca el Injerto coffee and vanilla beans.
Lompoc: Mon Cheri
This Belgian style golden ale was brewed with the Ardennes yeast strain giving off a mild fruitiness and finishing with a coriander spiciness. 5.5% ABV
Ninkasi Brewing/Devil’s Backbone: The Devil Went Down To Oregon
Imperial Dark Rye collaboration beer with Virginia’s acclaimed Devil’s Backbone Brewery. 7.2% ABV.
Reverend Nat’s: Apple Pie
Apple pie is a blend of mixed fermentation cider with Mexican piloncillo and bourbon barrel-aged apple wine spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Heavy fruit notes from the cider and subtle spice from the apple wine combine to create a unique wintery, pie-like drinking experience. 8.0% ABV
Oakshire Brewing: Hellshire IV
The breweries fourth entry into the Hellshire series is a blend of 3 different beers matured in bourbon and brandy barrels. Oakshire’s Very Ill Tempered Gnome was the base beer and after aging and blending the final product is akin to an Old Ale or Barleywine. 10.3% ABV
Upright Brewing: Spollen Angel
a Belgian-style tripel – a fitting style to pay tribute to one of our favorite brewers, Chris Spollen. The crew here met him during his days at Amnesia up the street from us, but he’s played a big part in making Oregon beer great for much longer. More important than his contributions to the brewing community is Chris’ special personality that makes him a true blast to crush a couple beers with. The Spollen Angel is one we think he’d enjoy sharing – with a big spicy nose and well integrated layers of malt, hops, and yeast notes. 9.4%
Barley Browns: TBA
Tickets are on sale via Paypal for only $5 and include a buffet style dish from Chef Paul Kasten: Pork Collar braised in wort and sliced into portions, served over roasted winter veggies simmered in the pork braising liquid, and fried sage.
Raffle Tickets will be on sale for $2 with multiple chances to win everything from Double Mountain Kriek t-shirts, Allagash Brewing Hat, Portland Beer Week shirts and even the new book “Oregon Breweries” by Brian Yaeger, the 2015 Oregon Beer Calendar, bottles of Barley Browns Chaos (limited to 666 bottles), a coupon for one of the first Growler Works uKeg’s and even a New Belgium Cruiser bicycle.
