More than 50 big, bold, beautiful beers at this year's Bacchanal

With over 50 barleywines in the queue, the Beveridge Place Pub’s 7th Annual Barleywine Bacchanal promises to be a daring celebration of America’s most audacious beery creations. We list all of the barleywines below. This year the Bacchanal will run from Friday, Feb. 26 through Saturday, March 6.

For those of you frightened by such swarthy suds, they will also be pouring their eight regular house beers; however, 24 taps will be dedicated to the barleywines. Amazing. You aren’t expected to drink a pint of each, though you are welcome to try. Sampler trays will be the more rational approach.

Gird thy liver. Get ready for an unprecedented display of the biggest, boldest brews the Bev has ever assembled.

The Events

Within the week-long Bacchanal, they will feature five special event nights:

  • Sunday, Feb. 28 – PDX to SEA. Featuring offerings from four great Portland brewpubs.
  • Monday, March 1 – Vertical I. Three years worth of brew from three different breweries.
  • Tuesday, March 2 – Vertical II. Three more from three others.
  • Wednesday, March 3 – Party like it’s 2006. Featuring the last of some ’06 vintage barleywines.
  • Thursday, March 4 – Ultimate Rare Barleywine Night. A cask of Fish 10-Squared on the bar and they’ll be pouring Full Sail Old Boilermaker 98 (barrel-aged since 1998).
