The 4th Annual Baker’s Dozen is Portland’s, and the world’s, only coffee beer and doughnut festival. It features three things Portland does best: beer, coffee, and doughnuts. Portland is home to several dozen craft breweries and independent roasters so the marriage of the two made in hoppy, caffeinated heaven. Those results then pair hedonistically with doughnuts. Mix’n’match; no single coffee beer is designed to complement any particular doughnut. Last year the event sold out in advance and tickets are limited to 500 (to ensure attendees can sample everything).
Paid admission includes samples of every unique coffee-infused beer and delectable doughnut morsel (most will be quartered). Each beer incorporates a different local roaster’s beans. Brewers excel at experimenting with base styles on which to layer coffee notes over, ranging from traditional stouts and porters to cream ales and a rauchbier. The line-up this year features mostly Portland breweries but also a beloved one from Corvallis and two from Washington:
The mostly Portland line-up includes: 54-40 (Washougal, WA) Baerlic, Block 15 (Maple Cream, which is the very last keg in existence of the Cosmic Cold Brew series), Coalition (“Wake an’ Bacon” CBD-infused rauchbier), Culmination, host Ecliptic, Fremont (a rare keg of “Coffee Cinnamon B-Bomb”), Hopworks, McMenamins (featuring McMenamins house-roasted coffee and house-distilled Hogshead Whiskey) Widmer Bros.
Roasters include Badbeard’s Coffee/Microroastery, Bespoken Coffee Roasters, BlackRose, Cellar Door Coffee Roasters, Coco Donuts and Coffee, Heart Roasters, Olé Latte Coffee, McMenamins Coffee Roasters, Modern Times Coffee, Nossa Familia, Water Street Coffee, and more.
Doughnut makers include Annie’s Donuts, Blue Star Donuts, Coco Donuts, Churros Locos, Delicious Donuts, Donut Byte Labs, Helen Bernhard Bakery, Joe’s Donuts out of Sandy, OR, Mama’s Mini Donuts, Staccato Gelato, and more.
