Wow! December is a busy enough month as it is and then throw in a few extra family fun events at OMSI, a beer and coffee collaboration, and a DIY event with Pigeon Toe Ceramics and California Olive Ranch and you've got a month of collaborations!
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 6TH
GroundWorks Coffee is teaming up with local Portland, Oregon brewers for a "brewers' series" to create unique coffee beers to feature a different Groundwork organic coffee roast chosen by the brewers and featured in a style of beer that's not typically combined with coffee.
The series kicks off on December 6th with Stormbreaker Brewing. Stormbreaker has created a delicious Coffee and Cream Ale called " MOCABE LO SABE" featuring single origin coffee beans Groundwork sourced from the MOCABE Organic Farmer Co-Op in the Chiapas region of Mexico. This beer has a luxurious bouquet of bittersweet chocolate and organic coffee, with creamy, full bodied mouthfeel from flaked wheat, flaked oats, and lactose. Subtle brown sugar sweetness is imparted by the light roast of the organic Mexico coffee beans, combined with the malt backbone of American 2 row barley. It's balanced with NW Cascade and Willamette hops.
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14TH
California Olive Ranch has teamed up with a local favorite, Pigeon Toe Ceramics for a special workshop.
This collaboration is in celebration of California Olive Ranch’s “Made Right, Here” national campaign which aims to give a voice to other makers that are equally dedicated to artfully crafted, sustainable products. Together, the two makers have synced up to host a truly special workshop. On Thursday, December 14, California Olive Ranch and Pigeon Toe will offer olive oil tastings, Pigeon Toe tumbler customizations, and complimentary drinks and bites by Olympia Provisions at Tillamook Station.
