Next month, the streets surrounding Rogue Ales’ Green Dragon Bistro will be the backdrop to The Wedge 2015, the Oregon Cheese Guild’s signature event celebrating all things cheese. Hundreds of tantalizing handmade cheeses, specialty foods, and craft beverages will be available for tasting and purchase from more than 40 regional creameries, wineries, and artisan food and beverage producers.
Cheesemakers will be on hand to inform and guide guests through the samplings. Bring a cooler and stock up on these often hard-to-find gems! There is no admission charge to enter The Wedge festival grounds. Sampling cheeses and specialty foods requires purchase of a tasting ticket, available in advance for $15 or at the door for $20. All tickets come with a $5 voucher to purchase your favorite new cheese! Tasting tickets and information at www.thewedgeportland.com
In addition to the wide selection of Rogue Ales and other beers at the Green Dragon, this year’s event will feature offerings from our cider partner Wandering Aengus Ciderworks. And for the first time, Wedge attendees will be able to partake in a Wine Flight – $10 for tastes from all participating wineries and a commemorative glass to take home. Activities include cheese wheel bowling, photos with our mascot, and a visit from the dairy princesses!
Mouthwatering seminars are $10 each, including samples, and will take place in the barrel room throughout the event:
