2015 Malt Ball! The Fourth Wall and Coalition Brewing / by Stephen Agustin

The Malt Ball is a beer/music festival put together by the Portland Mercury and the Oregon Brewers Guild. We've been working with Coalition Brewing to craft a beer that reminds us of home. It will be called the Hawaii Five-0-3 IPA. We're very excited to unveil it on Saturday. 

Pre-ordering tickets is a good idea...they can be had here. ($25 for the whole day + 10 tastings / $15 per showcase + 5 tastings, $20 at the door per showcase)
