East Burn Annex
1800 E. Burnside

Thursday, February 24

Full Sail Brew Master John Harris hosts this tasting featuring a 2009 and 2011 Bourbon-Barrel Aged Stout. Hors d'oeuvres to pair with the tasting include clams casino, chocolate covered Neuske bacon, and sweet potato blini with pork tenderloin.

After its initial release in January 2010, Full Sail's Black Gold Bourbon Imperial Stout was aged for a full year in Bourbon casks from Kentucky. This extended aging presents hints of vanilla and oak. This, combined with the robust character of the Imperial Stout make for a smooth, wonderful taste experience. Black Gold was named one of “the best” barrel aged beers in the US by Men's Journal and took home a silver medal at the 2006 Great American Beer Festival® in the Wood and Barrel Aged Strong beer category.

Space is limited. To reserve your space in person, stop by the Upstairs Bar at EastBurn! Or reserve online by visiting

    I like beers and tasting them. Seriously, this intrigues me. Bourbon-barrel aged stout? I’d like to give that a try.

  2. Leonard February 21, 2011 at 11:14 am #

    Sounds like a fabulous event!

  3. Celeste R. February 21, 2011 at 11:15 am #

    I’ve never been to a beer tasting before, and I’d like to experience it. :)

    My boyfriend says that he has never met a stout he liked. I would love to change that.

  5. trish February 21, 2011 at 11:16 am #

    This sounds amazing!

  6. Christian Joseph Majewski February 21, 2011 at 11:17 am #

    Sounds like a fabulous pairing of food and aged stout and East Burn is an awesome place!

    I haven’t had good Bourbon since visiting the distilleries in my best friend’s state of Kentucky. Please remind me of those good times.. !

  10. Nicole February 21, 2011 at 11:50 am #

    Yes yes yes! Beer, bourbon, delicious food, East Burn and a brew master. All these things make me very happy. I would love to go. Thanks for doing so much cool stuff, PDX Pipeline!

    My first pint in a pub was a stout at the tender age of 20 (it was legal, I promise): an imperial pint of Guinness, in Ireland. Stouts and porters have been favorites since, and this stout sounds particularly amazing (and like it’d blow that Guinness out of the water, especially with that food. Delicious.)

  12. Amber February 21, 2011 at 12:31 pm #

    I would like to attend because I love East Burn and have met a great guy whom I’d love to take here for our third date!

  13. Kimberly February 21, 2011 at 1:10 pm #

    I love beer more than I like most people I know! And this one sounds amazing! I want to go!

  14. Morgan February 21, 2011 at 1:12 pm #

    Thanks for keeping us up to speed on all the best brewery-vents PDXPipeline – East Burn is quickly becoming my favorite spot to try all of the best new beers!

  15. Petra Alexander February 21, 2011 at 1:30 pm #

    This would make up for not taking my sweetie out on V-day because we were too broke.

  16. Roddy jasa February 21, 2011 at 1:41 pm #

    I’ve never tried a sweet potato blini with pork tenderloin before

  17. Chris February 21, 2011 at 3:19 pm #

    I have been looking for a reason to go back to East Burn and this event sounds like just the right occasion and you can’t go wrong with stout! Win-win!

  18. MatthewT February 21, 2011 at 3:25 pm #

    I would like to leave a comment that wins, but I just realized this tasting is for beer and not bourbon! I am a big fan and supporter of oregon beers…just enjoy local spirits as well.

  19. Teneka February 21, 2011 at 3:46 pm #

    I would soo love this! This will be my boyfriend’s first day off in 2 weeks & he LOVES stout! Even better if it’s bourbon-barrel aged!Life & schedules have been insane, so we could both use some fun…with Skee-Ball even!

  20. Amy Kelter February 21, 2011 at 4:05 pm #

  21. Matthew February 21, 2011 at 9:37 pm #

    Please, please, please pick me! I would love to go to this. Of all the free tickets you’re giving out this would be the best.

  22. Lori February 22, 2011 at 12:41 am #

    Bourbon Stout,
    it makes me shout,
    “I sure need a fun night out!”
    I missed “V.D.”
    ‘Cause my man’s at sea,
    making some cash
    for rent with me.
    You’re not fakin’-
    Are they really makin’
    Chocolate bacon?
    If that is so,
    I’ve GOT to go.
    Pipeline will you make it flow?

  23. Chris February 22, 2011 at 2:07 am #

  26. Ben February 22, 2011 at 5:08 pm #

    It’s interesting to see that, out of all the ticket giveaways PDX Pipeline throws out to Portlanders, the most popular are always the ones involving alcohol.

    Are we a city of freaks? Yes. Alcohol freaks? Definitely.

  27. gray ayer February 22, 2011 at 10:01 pm #

    I have toured many a bourbon facility in Kentucky and considered buying one of their used casks simply to store in my kitchen for its aromatic discharge. And though most alcohol these days gives me an allergic reaction of taking my feet itchy, my love of stouts rules out.

  28. Kyle Krause February 23, 2011 at 11:23 am #

    I’m a beer brewer and reviewer, fanatic, promoter and enthusiast. I’m a fan of Full Sail and an ever bigger fan of Bourbon Barrel beers. I freakin’ love East Burn.

    That being said, there is NO ONE who will enjoy those free tickets more than myself (and my lady friend). Seriously.


  29. eileen ruelas February 23, 2011 at 11:26 am #

    I would like tickets because frankly I loooooooooove Bourbon!

  30. Ben Davenport February 23, 2011 at 12:17 pm #

    I would love the tickets because I am a beer geek and trying bourbon-barrel aged anything sounds absolutely delicious.

  31. Kenny Schmidt February 23, 2011 at 12:31 pm #

    Eastburn simply is the best bar in Portland.

  32. Jess February 23, 2011 at 12:47 pm #

    After working 60 hrs/week they let me go last thursday for not working hard enough. I could really use a pick me up!

  33. Soco February 23, 2011 at 6:40 pm #

  34. Bonnie Grimm February 23, 2011 at 10:34 pm #
