Central Oregon Beer Week events, Wednesday, May 23

Central Oregon Beer WeekCentral Oregon Beer Week continues, with more great events lined up for today, Wednesday the 23rd. Unfortunately though, the Wanderlust Backstage Beer Tour didn’t get enough numbers to make it a go, so they were not able to do that tour this time around, which is a shame because that sounded really cool.

    Anyone who completes the Bend Ale Trail during the Week will get a special, limited edition Bend Ale Trail koozie!
  • Specials at Cascade West
    Cascade West will have 12 of their 32 tap handles dedicated to the local breweries and sell drafts for $3.00 all week open to close (11am to midnight).
  • Beer Cocktails & Small Plate Menu at 10 Below
    10 Below Restaurant in the Oxford Hotel boasts 6 taps, always stocked with Central Oregon’s finest brews.

  • Brew Werks Beer Dinner
    Chef Rudy has worked out an outstanding menu for Old Mill Brew Wërks first ever beer-pairing meal. It’s a five course, hand-crafted menu of items chosen to work in cohort with the excellence of Brew Wërks Brewing’s current lineup of beer. Brewmaster Michael McMahon will be on-hand to field questions and comments about his recent creations and the next steps in the life of this little brewery in Bend. The event is set for Wednesday, May 23 from 6:30-8:30. To reserve a spot at this limited engagement, please call the pub at 541-633-7670. Cost is $50 per person for the full five courses plus the beer (of course!).
