Celebrate the winter holidays by re-living your high school days at Breakside Brewery’s Winter Formal on Saturday December 15th at the Melody Ballroom. This adults only flashback features 10+ craft beers and a dance floor presided over by the likes of DJ Anjali & The Incredible Kid and Boy Eats Drum Machine plus contests and prizes.

Remember that High School dance your couldn’t get a date to go to? Or maybe the one you had the time of your life at with your first girlfriend or future wife? Breakside Brewery gives you the chance to relive or re-imagine that time with the mind-blowing addition of delicious craft beer.
Dress “Portland Formal” and bring your dancing shoes to compete for prizes like: Sharpest Dressed and Best Couples Dance or vote to crown the King and Queen of the ball.

Or just get your picture taken by our on site photographer. With a full liquor bar and 10+ beers on tap from Breakside Brewery as well as friends Burnside Brewery and The Commons Brewery with some rare barrel-aged beer tappings throughout the evening you wont go thirsty. Snacks will be included but we recommend eating dinner ahead of the formal.

Tickets are $12 or $20 with 2 drink tickets. Bring a donation for Toys for Tots and receive a free drink ticket (must be a new unwrapped toy). Tickets available at Stranger Tickets.

  9. Dani December 5, 2012 at 7:27 pm #

    I’d like to attend because I need an updated memory and winter formal photo. Wore a stretchy black dress from Ross and had a super-awkward dinner at Stanford’s–YIKES!! Don’t know if it gets much worse than that!

    I would love to go to this to repay my 17 year-old self for the extremely boring prom of my senior year of high school. This will be much better for 3 reasons.
    1. The final song will not be by Shania Twain
    2.Breakside beer is a hell of a lot better than Mt. Dew and Pepsi
    3. Since I would be going with my wife, there’s a good chance that I’ll actually be getting laid!

    Plus: I feel kind of like Don Draper when I get to get drunk in a nice suit!

  11. Casey December 5, 2012 at 10:00 pm #

    Free = more fun!

  12. griz December 6, 2012 at 12:36 pm #

  15. Sara December 6, 2012 at 3:24 pm #

    I asked 7 people to my senior prom and went by myself :/ Can this situation be rectified?

  16. Tania Porter December 6, 2012 at 3:38 pm #

    My ballgown is *always* at the ready! I actually have a family even that day that I have been desperately trying to avoid…this would be the best excuse ever!!

  17. Erica December 6, 2012 at 3:48 pm #

    I would proudly put on heels and grab my partner to dance and be merry! Oh the jolly fun we would have!


  18. Marianne December 6, 2012 at 3:52 pm #

    OMG, I so want to go to this!

  20. Cheryl December 6, 2012 at 4:08 pm #

    My boyfriend looks damn good in a suit, and even better in a suit while drinking beer. And I have lots of lovely dresses, in which I’d look even better drinking beer.

  21. Jenny December 6, 2012 at 4:35 pm #

    woohoo! i just got really excited when I saw this. I love to dance, and my brewer boyfriend loves nw beer. this seems like the perfect way to get him on the dance floor.

  22. August December 6, 2012 at 4:52 pm #

    Looking forward to drinking some fantastic beer and getting crazy on the dance floor

  23. Andrea December 6, 2012 at 5:28 pm #

    Because my freakin lame lesbian buddies once again ixnayed my ball gown theme for our annual New Years party and I wanna GLAM IT UP dammit! They’d more likely volunteer to pick up my dog’s poo than put on a dress.

  24. Jill December 6, 2012 at 5:32 pm #

    My 50 Shades of Grey man and I would love to attend this fine event..he looks fabulous in his suit and grey tie ;)

  25. Lee December 6, 2012 at 5:58 pm #

    My leisure suit needs to get out of the house! My liver needs the proper care and feeding it deserves!

  26. Amanda December 6, 2012 at 6:14 pm #

    Nothing better than a lil dancin and a lot of beer… :)

  27. Ian December 6, 2012 at 6:27 pm #

    Sounds like a blast, would love to go!

  28. Autumn December 6, 2012 at 7:27 pm #

    The only Winter Formal I get to attend is the one at the high school at which I teach where I have to chaperone. Please let me have a little teenage fun-minus the teenagers, thank you.

  29. Brandy December 6, 2012 at 8:36 pm #

    My husband and I have been married for 8 years (just 2 days after the Formal!) but we have NEVER been to a FORMAL. They have been offered many times over the 12 years we have been together in the cities we lived BUT 0% have been of interest to him UNTIL NOW! Winning tickets would be a Christmas Miracle/Great Anniversary Gift/Insanely Awesome… and I have funds to get him a cool tie (that highlights my hotness!). Thanks! :)

  30. DeDe December 6, 2012 at 10:29 pm #

    Can anyone say Date night with out kids! Beer, formal, dancing and with a Hot husband… Yes please (:

  31. Santa December 6, 2012 at 11:15 pm #

    I just bought Ron Tonkin’s red cashmere evening jacket at Goodwill and it’s hissing at me from the closet, “Take me dancing!”

  32. Stony Curtis December 7, 2012 at 8:55 am #

    All good things begin with “B”… Beer, Bottles of Beer, Barrels of Beer, Ballroom Blitz… !
    Please throw my Bowler in the ring!

  33. Mary December 7, 2012 at 10:00 am #

  36. Erica December 7, 2012 at 1:12 pm #

    Wow, perfect excuse to call up the boy from high school who got away!

  37. Lindsay December 7, 2012 at 1:15 pm #

  44. Matthew December 8, 2012 at 6:19 pm #

    Nothing wrong with this. I listened to Zeppelin and Pink Floyd in high school. I’m sure I didn’t miss much in the way of breakdancing.

  45. Ted December 9, 2012 at 8:24 pm #

    I want to take my beautiful wife to this and visit the photographer, since the photographer at my prom refused to take a picture of my date and I because he told me, “your parents will hate that pose.” Fail.

  46. Kimberly December 9, 2012 at 10:58 pm #

    Amazing event would love tickets!

  47. PQ December 10, 2012 at 11:11 am #

  51. Anne P December 13, 2012 at 4:49 pm #

    Me, me, pick ME! Want to treat the hubby to get him out of the house. I’m on his list ever since my mom moved in with us (to our dining room) a month ago, and I spent too much money getting her organized.

  52. laura December 13, 2012 at 10:16 pm #

    Indian Djs and formal wear! Sounds perfect.
