Green Dragon Shindig

I'll be out of town through the weekend, but before I go, here's an event I regret to have to miss. Maybe you can check it out and report back. It sets a pretty high standard for brewing events.
Ninkasi Brewing and Pop Tomorrow Present a live concert and music video release party by local Indie band The Grokkers*and a meet-the-brewer event all in one.

Jamie Floyd of Ninkasi will be bringing a ton of special Ninkasi beers made exclusively for this show. So don't miss out on a rare opportunity to drink some unique beer and to meet the brewmaster himself.

Saturday May 31 at 8pm
Green Dragon Bistro
928 SE 9th Ave
Portland, OR 97214
(503) 517-0606
Added bonus: one of the Grokkers works at Belmont Station, so there are further beer connections here.

*The band elucidates: The Oxford English Dictionary defines grok as "to understand intuitively or by empathy; to establish rapport with" and "to empathize or communicate sympathetically (with); also, to experience enjoyment." Other forms of the word include "groks" (present third person singular), "grokked" (past participle) and "grokking" (present participle).

[Post updated with the date and time. Sorry!]
