Upcoming Events

liftarn_large_barrelI am ashamed to admit that I have never been to one of Oregons beer festivals, and I’ve lived here all my life. It’s sad really. To be honost prior to this year I didn’t even know there were any festivals outside of Octoberfest and the one at Riverfront Park. However, thanks to the education provided by writing this blog, my friends, and my Uncle Tom I will attend multiple festivals this year. Here’s a list of festivals coming up in April.

Oregon Spring Beer and Wine Festival

This is the big one in April for me, and one of the festivals I will attend. That reminds me, I need to get the day off for it…. This is the festivals 15th year, and supposedly there will be 90+ beers to sample, plus wine, mead, spirits, cheese, artisan chocolate, and probably whatever else they can get in the building . The event is noon – 11:00 on the 10th and 11th at the Oregon Convention Center. Check out their website for more info

Oregon Gardens Brewfest

The Oregon Gardens Brewfest is in the J. Frank Schmidt, Jr. Pavilion on April 25th and 26th. There will be beer sampling, food, live music, and a Homebrew Compitition. The cost is $15 and $5 parking. I’m still not certain about wether I should go to this one. In order to go I’d have to take another day off, and two beer festivals in one month might be a bit to much. So if you happen to be heading out to Silverton that weekend, or you have a free day then head down. For more info on this event check out their website.

Hair Of The Dog Earth Day Sale

I have never tried any beers from Hair of the Dog, but a big beer sale bonanza is good news in my book. The sale is on April 25 starting at 10 am and ending at 4 pm at their brewery. For all you greenies out there this would be a good bet for you since Hair of the Dog has gone organic.
