“Heritage Brew Fest” at the Platypus Pub tonight

Olympia BeerAs much as Bend is a booming beer town, you might think it’s weird to celebrate the old school beers, but tonight the Platypus Pub is doing just that and having fun with it: their “Heritage Brew Fest” kicks off at 6pm and is featuring the classic beers of Pabst Blue Ribbon, Olympia, Rainier, and Hawaii’s Primo.

Come join us Wednesday, February 20th at 6:00, for a night of tongue in cheek fun as we celebrate a few of the classic beers from our past (or present as the case may be). Jamie Walker is the Western sales rep from Pabst Brewing. He will be here to talk to us and give away some swag from the brands he represents; PBR, Rainier, Olympia and Primo.

We will have PBR on draught, 20 oz. for $2.50, 16 oz cans of OLY, Rainier and PBR Light and bottles of Primo for $2.00.

There is a possibility that Larry Sidor may stop by. As many of you know he is the Brewmaster/Co-owner of Crux Fermentation Project. What you may not know is that he got his start at Olympia Brewing.

There will also be some great classic foods to pair with these beers. PBR & Mini Corn Dogs, Tater Tots and Rainier, Nachos and Olympia and who can resist Pulled Pork and Pineapple Pizza with a Primo!!

Bring your friends down to Platypus Pub for a night of nostalgic fun.

This could make for a fun, ironic night. (Bend hipsters, anyone?)
