TUES. MARCH 14th
5:30pm: Q&A, swag give away.
Question: If I drink “Two Flowers IPA,” will I pass a drug test? Answer: Yes. There is no THC (the psychoactive element found in marijuana) in this beer. Only CBD and hemp oil.
Question: Will I get high if I drink this beer? Answer: No, but you will feel the effects of the CBD. It will feel more like you’ve been relaxing in a hot tub with a, you guessed it, beer.
These questions and more answered by Coalition Brewing after we tap “Two Flowers IPA,” the first commercially produced Cannobidoil (CBD) Hemp infused beer in Oregon on Tuesday, March 13th.
With this breakthrough beer, Coalition hopes to encompass a true collaboration of these true “kissing cousings,” hops and cannabis.

MONDAY, FEB. 20th: A group of local beer rebels are organizing to fight inequality through beer. This movement, a.k.a. Beer Party PDX, wants to effectively protect and promote basic civil rights including voter access, freedom of speech, and equal rights pint by pint.
What’s happening? Your favorite beer bars across the city, Saraveza included, are hosting fundraisers for the American Civil Liberties Union. Saraveza will be donating the equivalent of your pint purchase to charity.
If you want to support the cause, join with us and enjoy a pint of Montavilla Brew Works “Closer to the Hops” IPA. This Pacific Northwest IPA is light golden and bright with a dry, snappy finish. This beauty is brewed with 2-row, Pilsner, Vienna and a bit of Crystal malts. Magnum, Cascade, Sterling, Centennial hops contribute to the bitterness, and a big dose of Mosaic hops provide great tropical aroma.
