Winthrop’s favorite son returns! Of course I’m talking about our brewer Thomas who, along with Crystal, will be yukking it up behind the jockey box at this 2nd annual fest benefitting Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.
Calling all cat ladies and cat dudes, it’s time once again when the Beveridge Place Pub hosts Furry Faces Foundation’s Catsino, which I'm pretty sure is ready for national holiday status. Door prizes, casino style games, snacks and Georgetown employees almost competently manning the craps table! It’s a fun filled afternoon with a high possibility of cats! And winning! Which is the same as cats!
It’s the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, and while the people trying to recreate the magic of that weekend by putting on a music festival featuring both Hot Tuna AND Canned Heat still don’t have a location set for their August event (no really, it’s kind of crazy) the folks at Phinney are ready to go with their own version - Beerstock! Enjoy beer from 30 local breweries without worrying about mud or the brown acid.
The 9th annual Bremerton Summer Brewfest is a two day event on the Bremerton waterfront with beer, live music and tasty food, and it's just a short walk from the Seattle - Bremerton ferry! Featuring 30 Washington breweries pouring more than 100 craft beers, the focus for this summertime festival is on fruit infused beers. What will we be bringing? I have no idea! That’s part of the fun!

PRIMA BISTRO BEER DINNER - 10th Anniversary
On October 22, 1996, Journey released their 10th studio album, Trial By Fire*. It marked the reunion of the classic 1980’s lineup, featuring bassist Rob Valory, drummer Steve Smith and vocalist Steve Perry, who had not recorded together since 1983’s Frontiers album. Well folks, it’s time to get the band back together for the 10th Anniversary of Prima Bistro’s Beer Dinner when Prima pulls together a really amazing 5 course dinner paired with 5 Georgetown beers. And if you’ve never been, now’s the time for your own personal trial by fire. Whither Journey comes on (likely) and/or shirts come off (debatable) do yourself a favor and get tickets (and hotel rooms) now because this event sells out.
*The album art also prominently features a cat head, which if that isn’t a sign I don’t know what is.
McMinnville-ites! We know you're partial to wine out there in wine country but you know what they say: it takes a lot of beer to make wine. Swing by Mac Taps where Sean will expound on the virtues of Georgetown beer and the majesty of swag! Leave your aerators at home!
The sixth annual Eastern Oregon Beer Festival will feature beers from breweries across Eastern Oregon, the Pacific Northwest, and beyond- including our Bodhizafa IPA and Roger's Pilsner! Live music, local crafts, great food and Q&A’s with brewers are all part of the biggest and best craft beer festival of Eastern Oregon. AND everyone who purchases a Tasting Pass receives a commemorative glass tasting mug. Yeah! Classy glassy!
Formerly The Bite & Brew of Salem, the now christened Cherryfest is the city's premiere summer party celebrating all things Salem. This four-day festival features live music, tasty snacks, and some of the best beers and ciders on tap - 2 of which will be our Johnny Utah Pale Ale and Bodhizafa IPA. Eat, drink and be cherry!
Portland Meadows, beer fest 3-7pm, music until 10pm
Punk in Drublic
As soon as Sean sent me this event for the event list, IMMEDIATELY Andy Rooney's voice popped in my head asking "What’s the deal with all these punk rock music and craft beer festivals?” (you can hear it too, can’t you?) I mean, it’s just crazy, first Rancid, Pennywise and Suicidal Tendencies just rolled through with their Bash fest, and now this. What’s also crazy, I just now realized, is a lot of these bands are on Epitaph Records - this feels like some kind of 90’s punk rock conspiracy. But hey, it’s punk rock, it’s craft beer - what else do you want? We’ll have our Johnny Utah Pale and Bodhizafa IPA pouring.
Wrangle up your pals for this great outdoor brewfest! Featuring both beer AND BBQ - two great tastes that taste great together - you’ll also be treated to some live music. We’ll be pouring our Johnny Utah Pale and Bodhizafa IPA - two great tastes that taste great one right after another.
