Lompoc Brewing’s 5Q debuts Bob’s Braggot, celebrates the storming of the Bastille

This Saturday, July 11th starting at 11 a.m. and continuing well into the afternoon at 5 p.m., make sure you are along the super hip stretch of N. Williams in Portland that is home to Lompoc’s 5th Quadrant and Pix Patisserie.

Lompoc Brewing’s 5th Quadrant and its new Sidebar will host the Bob Farrell Braggot Release Party from noon until 5 p.m. Bob’s Braggot is a traditional braggot (half ale and half mead) made with Willamette Valley honey from Buckwheat and Fireweed wildflowers. The beer was brewed with Bob’s help before he lost his battle with cancer in the Spring of 08. Lompoc finished the braggot in the fall of ’08 and the brewers believe it has aged enough to serve. Bob would be proud. Portions of the proceeds go to the Oregon Brew Crew and to Farrell’s family for medical costs. Enjoy a glass in the Sidebar or take a 22 oz bottle home for $9.00

Step outside into the beautiful July sunshine and enjoy Pix’s Bastille Day Block Party from 11 a.m. with live music, DJs, 5k Mini Marathon and a dog parade.

Wait! There’s more! For a mere $1, toss one of the loveable Lompoc brewers into the Dunk Tank to benefit Locks of Love and the Bob Farrell fund, tour the brewery and enjoy another beer in the Bastille Day Beer Garden.
