The 4th Annual Toast event is an opportunity to taste from a wide variety of over 120 spirits from across the Northwest, the Country and the Globe. Whether your spirit preference is Whiskey, Rum, Gin, Vodka, Tequila, Brandy, Liqueurs – or even unique spirits like Absinthe and Aquavit – the estimated 30 distillers and producers at TOAST will have it covered. TOAST allows small distillers and producers to showcase their handcrafted spirits, while providing an opportunity for the public to experience the diversity and quality of craft spirits from Oregon and beyond.
Ted Pappas explains how this year’s event will be bigger, “This year we will have multiple events throughout the greater Portland area highlighting local distillers along with some of our outstanding restaurants leading up to the event. It’s the first step to transforming our event from a few days to a week of activities.”
Continuing this year will be the Food Cart Court, where several of Portland’s favorite food carts will be cooking up their respective specialties for purchase. Rain or shine, covered seating will make this a convenient and enjoyable post-work destination on Friday evening, or dinner on Saturday.
Sponsored by The Oregon Distillers Guild, TOAST takes place this year on Friday, April 11th and Saturday, April 12th on the sky bridge level of the World Trade Center in Portland. Hours are: April 11th, 5pm to 10pm and Saturday, April 12th, 4pm to 10pm. Admission at the door is $25 each day, and $20 tickets can be pre-purchased online at www.oregondistillerytrail.com/
The location of the event is Two World Trade Center, 121 SW Salmon Street, in downtown Portland. Tickets include single day admission, interaction with over 30 spirit producers, taste spirits from around the world, and a tasting glass, while they last. Bottles will be available for purchase to take home, and parking is $5/day at the convenient underground parking lot at the World Trade Center.
