Sixteen rad local craft brewers. Sixteen rad collaborative beers. Only at Collabofest.
Join us for Collabofest, our fourth annual celebration of Portland craft beer's collaborative spirit. We've brought together a group of sixteen local breweries, paired up everyone via blind draw, and will be debuting the resulting two collaborative beers from each pair at the festival. Base Camp's Collabofest benefits the good work of the Nature Conservancy-- connect with them at the festival or find them online @Nature_Oregon!
Grab your VIP or GA now-- we're offering a $5 discount for all presold tickets.
Online tickets will include a service fee-- swing by Base Camp's taproom to get the same great pricing without any fees (and a chance to enjoy a pint, while you're at it!).

we're celebrating our birthday!
With all our love and gratitude, thank you for your support over these last five years. We're so excited to be celebrating our fifth year spent doing what we love. Thank you for making it possible.
Our killer plans for the whole week are as follows (scroll a bit to find details on our Brewers' Reserve releases):
As is fitting for the "wood anniversary," we'll be kicking it up with a week-long tastetacular of barrel-aged beers from our Brewers' Reserve. Join us at 5pm each evening to grab a glass of these extraordinary brews-- available for that night only!
Our friends at Geeks Who Drink will be joining the party with a session of their always-awesome trivia. What could make it better? ALL. DAY. HAPPY HOUR. Grab deals on pints, pitchers, growler fills, and grub from our food cart partners. Trivia starts at 7pm.
A special anniversary week edition of our weekly $2 glasscapade features half pours of our fourth anniversary brew, the #4 Barrel-Aged Imperial Saison. This brew was fermented with our two favorite saison yeasts, then aged in red wine barrels, where it was dosed with brett, lacto, and Willamette Valley-grown Pinot Noir grapes from Goschie Farms. It's super tasty. One keg, serve it 'til it blows! Tapping it at 6pm.
Wild Confluence Media is dropping in to present two short adventure films exploring British Columbia's most urgent conservation issues. Q&A with filmmakers Colin Arisman and Luke Kantola, a raffle to support conservation efforts and win awesome prizes, and an overall benefit for the Mountain Caribou Initiative. Doors at 7pm.
Live music each night, beginning Thursday, highlighted by Letty Isabel and Ariel Cook on Saturday evening. Catch these tunes 7pm - 9pm.
We've got our by-invitation Industry Night party going down in the brewhouse-- if you work with our distributor, one of our ingredient suppliers, or are brewfriends with the Base Camp crew, hit us up for an invite!
We'll also be doing a progressive raffle, awarding selections from our specialty bottles:
For our five year celebration, it seems only right that we do $5 pints! All our beers, minus our Brewers' Reserve special releases, will be on special all day long.
Swing by earlier in the day to score deals on cases, six packs, and bottles, straight outta the brewhouse. The crew will be wheelin' and dealin' all afternoon, 12pm - 4pm.
And cupcakes. Time TBD. . . so get here early!

COLAB Bourbon Barrel-Aged Tripel (10.5% ABV)
A dry and spicy Belgian Tripel brewed in collaboration with Icicle Brewing Co., with added layers of molasses and vanilla from its extended aging in bourbon barrels.
Barrel-Aged Bretta Livin' Raspberry (5.6% ABV)
A spin-off of Base Camp's rotating sour beer offering, Barrel-Aged Bretta Livin' Raspberry is fruity, puckering, and funky from the amplifying effect of wood on wild fermentation.
Bourbonator TripleBock 2015 (9.1% ABV)
Brewed in collaboration with Eastside Distilling, the Bourbonator TripleBock is a brash and boozy bock taken to the next level with the soothing effects of Eastside's Burnside Bourbon barrels.
Barrel-Proof RCTID (10.0% ABV)
Barrel Proof 5th Anniversary Olde Stock Ale (11.2% ABV)
The heart and soul of #5-- Base Camp's fifth anniversary offering-- the straight barrel strength Olde Stock ale is vinous, funky, earthy, and immensely warming. Also debuting tonight: a fresh-brewed English Mild ale, and our #5, a traditional and carefully-executed blend of the two.
Wood Stove Dry-Hopped Winter Warmer (7.8% ABV)
A hoppy, northwest-style take on a winter warmer, the Wood Stove features velvety malt, delightful bourbon character from its time in an Eagle Rare barrel, and a late dry hopping to ramp the comfort factor up another notch.
Oude Bruin (6.5% ABV)
A carefully selected blend of barrels is tapped for this Belgian-style sour brown ale, sharp and bracing yet quenching and fruity.
Barrel-Aged, Brett'd 3rd Ann'y Belgian Dark Strong (12.3% ABV)
A mellowed and bretted version of the Belgian dark strong we knocked out for our third anniversary in 2015. Immense, complex, and ultra funky.
Barrel-Aged, Soured S'more Stout (8.3% ABV)
A tart and funky Flanders-style spin on Base Camp's hallmark S'more Stout, aged in Stein Distillery rum barrels.
Barrel-Aged Henri's Bière de Table (5.7% ABV)
Developed in collaboration with Henry's Tavern in 2016, this traditional French-style bière de table was carefully aged in a Buffalo Trace barrel for 15 months-- thanks to the Hollywood Beverage gang for the hook-up!

Dog Days of Summer
fundraiser for OHS & OFOSA
Join the Base Camp family in support of the good work of the Oregon Humane Society and Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals on Saturday 7/8!
We're incredibly excited to be hosting this event, a good cause that really hits home for many of us on the crew. Most of our dogs and cats were, at some point in their lives, shelter animals. Most of us look to adopt shelter animals when we have the opportunity to bring an animal into our families. Most of our friends and neighbors think the same way. Unfortunately, there are thousands of dogs and cats that still rely on the services of OHS and OFOSA. We put together this event as a way for us to leverage our livelihood to benefit all these animals still needing a family.
Adoptable dogs from OHS and OFOSA will be hanging out on the patio all afternoon-- join 'em with a pint to help them find their forever homes. Base Camp will be donating $1 from each pint of select beers to these groups. Know a friend that needs some puppy love? Meet us here on Saturday!
