Back for its twelfth year in a row, the Sasquatch Brew Fest is hitting Eugene the first Saturday of June. Enjoy craft beer (many of which are brewed specifically for this event), food booths, a silent auction, raffles, a home brew contest and an impressive line-up of live music. Happening in a neighborhood full of artistic expression and a multitude of great breweries and inventive restaurants (the new Fermentation District), attendees can look forward to this event being held in the great outdoors, as it once was in the festival’s early days.
Local breweries such as Ninkasi and Falling Sky will be in attendance, along with Carlton Oregon’s Fire Mountain Brewery, Sunriver Brewing, Nectar Creek Honeywine of Corvallis, and many more. Musical guests include Tatiamo, Douglas County Daughters, Hank Shreve Band and well-known Eugene-based headliner, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies!
Be sure to get in on the Sasquatch Brew Fest Beer Dinner. It will be held Friday, June 6, at 7 pm at the Falling Sky Delicatessen and will feature food from Falling Sky chefs paired with beer from festival participants. Click here for reservations.
This event was created in dedication to the memory of Glen Hay Falconer, a leading and popular brewer of now closed Wild Duck Brewery. Proceeds of the Sasquatch Beer Fest will benefit the Northwest Legends Foundation, a non-profit organization founded to produce this annual event and to further the beer and brewing culture here in the Pacific Northwest by awarding brewing scholarships to worthy candidates each year.
A worthy event which works to bring beer to the masses, while supporting brewers. This is one event I cannot wait to attend!
