Portland’s Gigantic Brewing Company is taking their 8th anniversary online for a virtual party this Saturday May 9th. Starting at noon, Gigantic’s founders Ben Love and Van Havig will be hosting a DJ party on facebook live with special guests from around the world and raising money for the Oregon Food Bank.
In normal times Gigantic would celebrate their anniversary with an all-day party in the taproom with $2 beers, and they aren’t going to let the occasion go by without some sort of party.
The DJ lineup for the anniversary includes Portland locals DJ Rev Shines, DJ Fernando, Mr. Moonlight of The Country Co-op, and Erik Beats, while Slimkid3 from Los Angeles, Chris Maestro from Bierwax in Brooklyn, DJ Blunt from Hatos Bar in Tokyo, Rick Nelson from Kimchi Radio in Amsterdam, and Brian ‘Stillwater’ Strumke from somewhere in the cosmos will all be beaming in to spin some of their favorite tracks. Gigantic will also have a number of special guests dropping into join the Facebook live broadcast. The live party will go until atleast 9pm, and possibly later. This will be a live ‘telethon’ style party to raise funds for the Oregon Food Bank.
