    Apparently Modern Times Portland is popular, as they are already expanding

    Von Ebert East is perhaps slowly becoming The Commons 2. Sean Burke has their first coolship up and running and is also joined by Jason Hansen, formerly of Sante Adairius Rustic Ales in Santa Cruz and Garden Path Fermentation in Washington.

    I like Modern Times a whole lot but I sure hope they're not expanding too fast.

    I like many things Modern Times, but too felt quite surprised by an expansion this quickly.

    On the one hand I feel like the NE is underserved with taprooms so this should be a good fit, but on the other hand Oakshire seems like a more touristy brand and those types of locations seem to do better in the Pearl. I suppose we'll see, but I'll definitely stop by.

    There seems to be an inordinate amount of good beer on tap right now in PDX (see some of the recent posts in the NWWBAYD thread). I assume Bailey's is doing some sort of cellar festval event, as currently they have things like 09 old foghorn, 09 Adam and 12 alaskan smoked porter on tap. Also, have heard that Tin Bucket will be holding their annual gound hog day event on super bowl Sunday, with all kinds of Fremomt goodies on tap (rusty nail, coconut bbomb, kds variants, etc).

    Modem Times has historically been very smart about expansion. I think they got this.

    Anyone heard any word about the annual triple IPA fest at NWIPA this year? They typically hold it in early March, but so far I've been unable to find any info about it.

    I've gone the last couple of years and always enjoyed it.

    How does the Oregon Beer Awards work from an attendee perspective? I saw it was $30 a ticket, is that just to watch the awards get handed out? Or do you get some drink tickets or something? I've been to the GABF session where they hand out awards probably half a dozen times and while it's neat to see who wins, it's certainly not something I would specifically pay to do.

    Yes, it’s just admission to the ceremony. It’s a bit more loose than the GABF awards ceremony, probably owing to it being an evening event vs. a morning one. If you like rubbing elbows with brewery and other industry people, it’s a fun celebratory night. If not, there’s no real reason to go. They also live stream it.

    The live stream option is nice, I'll try and remember to watch that next year.

    Is Modern Times PDX eligible for beers that were originally created in Portland or are they still considered a California brewery?

    Gold- GABF 2018
    Gold- NABA 2018

    As I understand it, they would be eligible but MT doesn't enter competitions. The award they shared for Best Collaboration was via the OBA Academy's nomination and voting process.

    What a coincidence--so did I.

    IPA sixpacks were $12.99. Pilsner was $11.99. Pricier than I was expecting. But..To be fair*...these are Whole Paycheck prices.

    ("Letterkenny" fans may read this with the drawn-out voice and the hand gesture.)

    Yeah, that's $1 above the RRP (in both cases).

    Just reviewed the Oregon beer awards. I realize a lot of these are dependent on who enters and what beers they bring, but holy cow 10 Barrel cleaned up!

    I also bought them at Whole Foods and experienced the same prices, but I don’t generally find they mark up their beer more than anyone else (unlike the rest of the store).
