Monday, September 28th

Join us in Portland’s Pearl District for lunch at the renowned Deschutes Brewery followed by a Portland-style pub-crawl on the BrewCycles!

Lunch: Following the first day’s presentations, lunch will be provided for all at the Deschutes Brewery, 210 NW 11th Ave, Portland, one of many craft beer breweries in the Portland area.  The food and non-alcoholic beverages for meeting participants are covered with the meeting registration fee.  You may also bring a guest, at an additional cost and with prior registration, see details below.

BrewCycle: Afterward, you are welcome to join the group on a BrewCycle pub pedal, 1425 NW Flanders St, Portland.  Board a bicycle built for 15 and collectively pedal to the Lucky Labrador Beer Hall, where you can enjoy beer brewed right behind the bar.  Then on to the Bridgeport Brewery, Oregon’s oldest craft brewery, to explore their take on the perfect Portland brew.  From beginning to end the trip will take 2 hours.

Participation in the BrewCycle Pub Pedal is limited to 30 people, and requires pre-registration as part of your online meeting registration process.  The cost of the BrewCycle trip is covered in the meeting registration, although the added cost for the beers at each stop are not and are to be paid personally at the bar.  (For anyone opting to not pedal, there will be alternative transportation available.)

If you are visiting from abroad, please be sure to bring your passport as it will be required for age verification by alcohol servers and some bars don’t accept international driver’s licenses.  You may also bring a guest, at an additional cost and with prior registration, see details below.  If you have already registered for the meeting and would like to register yourself for the BrewCycle, please email imum2015-inquiries@stccmop.org requesting participation and you will be registered on a BrewCycle.

Guests: You may bring a guest to lunch and/or the BrewCycle, for a single additional fee of $50.  You must register and pay for your guest in advance at the time you register for the meeting.  If you have already registered for the meeting and would like to register a guest to accompany you to these events, please contact imum2015-inquiries@stccmop.org.

This event promises to be a great opportunity to get to know your fellow IMUM participants on a fun and engaging level - so rain or shine, prepare for a memorable afternoon!
