Join your hosts Pono Brewing and EatFeastly, along with six bartenders, five restaurants, local wine+spirits, hundreds of Oregon oysters and an elite list of Shandy cocktails as we come together to mingle at this cocktail-style event called Shandytown. We’re stoked to eat all our friends’ food paired with a shandy recipe created by one of six top bartenders all working with one of our beers to compete to be “Mayor of Shandytown.”  You, the spontaneous, one-night-only-citizens of Shandytown can exercise your right to vote for your favorite.


Shandytown pdx bartender line up


Bartenders from Portland’s favorite places will each create a Shandy using Pono beer, their favorite spirits, and a bunch of bells and whistles to battle for the title of “Portland’s Best Shandy” and you are the judge. Taste through all six shandy variations, then vote for the best.
And the candidates for Mayor of Shandytown are ….
Angel Teta – Ataula
Eric Nelson – Shipwreck
Nathan Gerdes – La Moule
Jesse Card – Critical Hit PDX
Natasha Mesa – Raven & Rose
Michelle Ruocco – Han Oak

(Also available for purchase: Pono Brewing beers, Dear Mom Wine Shangria! Shandybacks, Sangrita and other surprises, because we love your taste buds.)

Shandytown pdx food line up


Benjamin Bettinger from Big’s Chicken is going to wow us with his well-loved chicken alongside Carlo Lamagna doing a Twisted Filipino dish, Tournant cracking oysters, and of course the chefs at T9 (Brent Richford’s Taqueria Nueve) will be cranking out tacos. Then, to wrap it all up in a sweet finale, Eb & Bean is scooping frozen yogurt.
Your $45 Ticket includes six shandy cocktails and food until you’re full. Join us to finish out summer with a ridiculous food and beverage line-up and support the good work of Growing Gardens.
