What You'll Get
During Prohibition, bootleggers made their own booze by burying grapes underground or catching moonbeams in a jar of water. Procure alcohol the easy way with today's Groupon to The Hoppy Brewer in Gresham. Check out what The Hoppy Brewer currently has on tap. Choose between the following options:
• For $3, you get a beer tasting (a $6 value). This option also includes a 10% discount on any beers purchased after tasting.
• For $10, you get $20 worth of home-brewing supplies and ingredients.
Prominently situated on Main Avenue in historic downtown Gresham, The Hoppy Brewer arms brewmasters with the supplies, ingredients, and wherewithal to create and assess high-quality suds. Take a seat in the outdoor courtyard as you sip, swish, and practice underwater breathing techniques in six 3-ounce samplings from the establishment's rotating selection of featured beers, which may include pours of Alameda El Toreoro organic IPA and Boulevard Tank 7 Farmhouse ale. Or, gain home-courtyard advantage by collecting hops ($1.99–$2.49/oz), malt extract ($16.99–$19.99/7 lb.), and base malt ($0.89–$2.49/lb.) and brewing a custom ale from the comfort of a vacationing relative's home.
Groupon is donating $1 from every Portland deal sold on Portland Beer Day to the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation's scholarship fund; up to $2,000 will be donated. Named for the late brewer Glen Hay, the foundation provides area brewers with opportunities to further their craft. In 2011, it is offering educational scholarships to the World Brewing Academy at the Siebel Institute and to the American Brewers Guild.
