Let's take a ride on Conflict-of-Interest Pony once again... Yes, the Old Gold is run by good friends of the Mercury (ever since that key party, they will not stop texting us), but we'd be remiss if we didn't tell you about the super-duper event the North Portland bar is hosting tonight.

Ordinarily, the OG keeps their taps under strict supervision, but starting at 4 pm, GoodLife Brewing is taking them to the prom for the most magical night of their lives. Beers from the Bend brewery will be flowing from most of the taps, and there will be rare brews, plus special beer-and-whiskey pairings designed just for tonight. The Old Gold's menu, too, will be centered around GoodLife beers—we have been told there will be offerings like: Beer-braised pork sandwich with Mountain Rescue Pale Ale pickles and fresh beer mustard; Pass Stout beer cheese fondue with warm bread and apples; and Comatose Imperial IPA doughnut bites rolled in sugar, which have been described as "totally ridiculous."

The Tap Takeover starts at 4 pm and rolls until the taps run dry, so your post-work boozing plans just got made. The Old Gold, 2105 N Killingsworth
