1080 The FAN (KFXX) will host a live-audience show and beer tasting, in conjunction with Rogue Ales and Spirits, with national sports radio icon Colin Cowherd. Cowherd, a former FAN host, will return for an exclusive event on Friday, August 28th, at Castaway in Portland’s Pearl District, featuring the launch of Rogue’s “Blunt and Bitter,” the official beer of The Herd with Colin Cowherd.
“Portland has given me so much opportunity through the years. I’m thrilled to debut this product that I love in a city that I love,” said Cowherd. “With my move back to the west coast, this will be the first of many trips to Portland.”
As the special guest of 1080 The FAN’s afternoon-drive staple Primetime with Isaac and Suke, Cowherd will discuss local and national sports topics, sports media, his move back to the west coast, and more. An audience Q&A will follow.
“All of us here at Rogue are thrilled to be working with a fellow rogue and revolutionary in Colin Cowherd,” commented Rogue Beer president Brett Joyce. “We both come from small coastal towns in the Pacific Northwest and, most importantly, share a kindred spirit as we both continue to ‘Dare, Risk, Dream’, and fight the status quo.”
“We’re excited to welcome Colin back to Portland for this one-of-a-kind event,” added FAN program director Jeff Austin. “The occasion of his beer debut and a candid conversation with our hosts and the FAN audience should make for a memorable evening.”
