Central Oregon Winter Beer Festival – Saturday

This Saturday, December 13, GoodLife Brewing is hosting the second annual Central Oregon Winter Beer Festival from 1 to 9pm in their Biergarten. Everything will be taking place in a heated tent, with the firepit roaring, but still dress for the weather! There will be nearly every Central Oregon brewery present pouring their winter beers:

  1. 10 Barrel Brewing
  2. Atlas Cider
  3. Bend Brewing
  4. Boneyard Beer
  5. Bridge 99 Brewery
  6. Cascade Lakes Brewing
  7. Crux Fermentation Project
  8. Deschutes Brewery
  9. GoodLife Brewing Co.
  10. McMenamins Old St. Francis School
  11. North Rim Brewing
  12. Oblivion Brewing
  13. Old Mill Brew Werks
  14. Rat Hole Brewing
  15. River Bend Brewing
  16. Silver Moon Brewing
  17. Smith Rock Brewing
  18. Solstice Brewing
  19. Sunriver Brewing
  20. Three Creeks Brewing
  21. Wild Ride Brewing
  22. Worthy Brewing

The Festival will cost $10, which gets you the glass and 4 tasting tokens, with additional tokens being $1 each. 100% of the proceeds are going to benefit the Central Oregon Brewers Guild.

The Bend Bulletin has some additional details as well:

There will be live music all day: Greg Botsford from 2-3:30 p.m., Tone Red from 4-6 p.m. and DJ Byrne (aka fellow festival organizer Kevin Byrne from Three Creeks Brewing) from 6-8:30 p.m. A $10 entry gets you a glass and four tasting tokens. Dump City Dumplings, Mauna Kea Grill and Burrito Deportivo food carts will be hanging out too.

And, I’ll be on hand from about 4pm until closing selling books, as well. It’s a great match—Central Oregon winter beers with the history of the breweries behind them all!
