Feast Portland is our city’s premier food event, attracting chefs and food lovers from all over the U.S. And if there’s nothing we love as much as Portland’s great food carts, it’s beer (and yeah, a shot of whiskey doesn’t hurt either). That’s why Food Carts Portland is excited to offer our readers the chance to win two (2!) tickets to Feast Portland’s Baby Got Beer Back tasting panel on Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 4:15 – 5:15 pm at the Portland Art Museum’s Sculpture Garden.
Want to win two tickets to Baby Got Beer-Back? Please tell us your favorite beer and Portland food cart pairing in the comments below. Bonus points if you can weave in a whiskey reference and make it rhyme! Here’s an example, “Bridgeport’s IPA, paired with Bro Dog’s bratwurst is A-OK!”
What’s Baby Got Beer-Back you ask?
BABY GOT BEER-BACK
The whiskey-with-a-beer-back has a long and hallowed tradition in the watering holes of North America. Take your beer-back to the next level by discerning the best pairing for a bourbon (pilsner or pale?) or an Irish whiskey (the obvious stout). We’ve enlisted four discerning palates to share their favorite pairings and help you hone your beer-back knowledge.
Baby Got Beer-Back is just one of Feast’s Tasting Panel events. The Tasting Panels run throughout the day on Friday, September 20, and Saturday, 21st. Other Tasting panels include, but are not limited to: Cocoa Comforts, The Best NW Wines You Aren’t Drinking, Aged and Infused drinks, White Wines and the Shoreline seafood tasting, and more! Check out Feast’s complete lineup of tasting panels.
