A Public Service

Someone has figured out a way to harness fandom’s biggest talent for charity. This weekend in Portland the OryCon Fan Lounge will host a benefit craft beer tasting on Friday, November 9 from 9-11 p.m.  All proceeds go to the Susan C. Petrey Clarion Scholarship Fund.

“There will be more than 40 different local craft beers available for tasting, for a small donation,” explains John Lorentz. “The beers include large number of seasonals and one-shot…as well as a vertical tasting of the 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010 vintages of The Abyss imperial stout, from Deschutes Brewery.  (The 2006 vintage alone will run you $150 if you purchased online today.)”

The OryCon Fan Lounge is in Room 1455.

  1. I kind of wonder what happened to the 2008 vintage.

    But this looks like both an admirable thing, and a fun thing for those so inclined, and if I were 1) there, and 2) liked beer, I would certainly sign up.

    I just missed buying it that year. (The bottles of The Abyss came from my cellar.)
