Worthy Brewing has been open for several months now, opening softly in early February though as popular as it’s been you wouldn’t have guessed “soft.” (Read: they’ve been slammed!) However this Friday, the 5th, they are celebrating their official Grand Opening with special Hop House Dedication and party from 4 to 9pm. Check it out:
As our hop farmer friends in the Willamette Valley prepare to plant their noble flowers, so too are we at Worthy Brewing ready to plant our own precious hop rhizomes. With the help of our partners at Indie Hops and Oregon State, we’ll also be opening our Worthy Hop House, which we will dedicate to the world’s foremost hopmeister, Dr. Al Haunold.
There’s plenty of juice for everyone. Here’s a preview of the exciting food, beer and entertainment we’ll be providing on this historic day:
- Special Tribute to Dr. Al Haunold as we christen the Worthy Hop House and plant rhizomes in the Worthy Hop Yard. We’ll kick it off with a short (!) speech at 5:30 pm and present our hero with a commemorative “Farm Out” tie dye t-shirt and Großes Dankeschön poster. Reminder to farmers, brewers and hop merchants to show up early to sign the special poster.
- Special release of our Worthy Saison, a delightful, straw-colored ale showcasing the quintessential Wallonia yeast and Dr. Haunold’s very own Sterling hops. Flowers and spice never tasted so nice! We’ll also break out two firkins: a one-off Amarillo dry hopped ESP and our Pilot Butter Bitter.
There will also be a pig roast, live music, it will be kid friendly with the biergarten open, and they’re even opening the 2-acre lot across the street for additional free parking.
Here’s the Facebook page for the event too. It’s going to be quite a party!
