Beer Connoisseurs – Not Beer Snobs.. Michelob Tasting 9/17

Belmont Station (4500 SE Stark St) is one of my very favorite spots for beer in Portland. It’s a great store and pub where the focus is on great tasting and unique beers.¬† In a move that shows the absolute difference between being a beer connoisseur and beer snob Belmont Station is having a Michelob Brewing Tasting on Wednesday September 17th from 6-8pm.

Here’s their blurb which speaks volumes:

We try real hard not to have an attitude. Sometimes it still creeps in, like when they told us the new line of Michelob beers are vastly improved and truly delicious. So we said bring it on. Let the people taste them. Here’s your chance to taste Michelob Porter, Pale Ale, Dunkelweisse, Amber Bock, Pumpkin Spice & maybe more. And take home 6 packs on sale.

Tastings are Free and open to all over 21.

    What’s a beer sob? Stop crying, no beer’s that bad. Well, maybe that Chelada stuff…

    Thanks for the kind words and publicity!

    I think that’s a beer S.O.B. which I’d be proud to have as a moniker – sounds much tougher than "snob."

    Beer Snob…. Not Sob… Note to self, don’t write posts late at night after drinking Wild Flemish Beer.

    Many moons ago, there was a weekly called "Paperpack Jukebox" that had a fortified wine tasting. I think somebody needs to take up that banner and run with it.

    I think thats really cool. Kudos Belmont Station for keeping an open mind and making it all about the taste, not the label.

    I’d recommend a blind taste test as well to keep tasters minds free.

    The date for this was changed. I went last week and they had no idea what I was talking about when I asked about a tasting. I found a printed calender of tastings and it says this was changed to Oct. 1st.

    That’s Odd. Gordon from Belmont Station was the first to comment on the piece and didn’t mention the date change. I’ll check with them the next time I am out there and see what the story is.
