Crow's Feet Launches Monthly Beer Tastings 

The shop by the river goes stout-mad on St. Patrick's Day

For more than two years, Crow's Feet Commons has been a go-to spot for skis, snowboards, bicycles, coffee, beer, breakfast sandwiches, and anything else one would possibly need living in Bend, save maybe for toilet paper and cold medicine. The bottle and tap collection has been particularly stellar from the get-go, offering everything from enormous cheap cans of Old German to complex, high-gravity craft from places like Evil Twin and The Bruery.

Bar manager Jared Smith is the man to thank for that, and beginning next week, he's debuting a new monthly tasting series that merits attention. On March 17 (St. Patrick's, of course), Crow's Feet will break out bottles of five rare stouts, $3 per 4-ounce tasting or $12 for a full flight. For fans of heavy dark beers, the event's a must, featuring offerings like Harviestoun Brewery's Ola Dubh 18 (a Scottish stout aged in 18-year-old Highland Park Whiskey barrels) and Danish brewer Herslev Bryghus' Black Force One Bourbon Barrel Edition, a smoked imperial stout they only released 375 bottles of. (Maybe "rareness" isn't something you can taste, but hey, it makes you feel special, right?)

Smith and the Crow's Feet crew will follow up this debut event with a food pairing with Spork on April 22 to coincide with the debut of Pfriem Family Brewers' bottle line, as well as a tie-in with The Commons Brewery and Portland-based mobile raw bar Oyster Social on May 16. If you're looking for exotic beer riverside, you know what to do.
