Weekend Events

I am normally bad about mentioning the myriad beer events happening in any given week around Oregon, but this weekend such a wave hit that I feel compelled to highlight three good ones. 

Friday, June 29  

Breakside Brewer’s Dinner at Wildwood, 6:30pm
This is one of Paul Kasten's regular offerings at Wildwood, but for this iteration, he as the especially food-oriented Ben Edmunds as his partner.  As one example of the pairings on offer, lets start with course one, a strawberry and asparagus salad (with basil, spring onion, champagne vinaigrette, goat cheese, and saba) paired with solera-style wild ale. Asparagus is notoriously hard for wine sommeliers to handle, but I bet Paul and Ben have it dialed in

$65 includes food, beer, and gratuity. Contact Shelly Jones ( // 503.225.0130) for seats.

The 3rd Annual Roscoe's Summer Beer Summit, 4 pm to close
Roscoe's has put together another stellar lineup for one of their mini-fests, and this one will be peopled by some of the brewers of the following beers:  Logsdon (Kili Wit), Dogfish Head (Festina Peche), 10 Barrel (Raspberry Sour Puss), Amnesia (Goldie Hops), Anchorage Brewing (Galaxy White IPA), Upright (Offen Weisse), Stiegl (Grapefruit Radler), Elysian (Yuzu's Golden Ale), Fort George (Spruce Bud Ale), Full Sail (Berliner Weisse), The Commons, and more.

Saturday, June 30th

Crux Fermentation Project Grand Opening, 5pm to 11pm
Crux is the project of Larry Sidor, the man who helmed Deschutes through the last several years of incredible growth and product expansion.  If you're in or near Bend this weekend, stop in and say hi.    
Here's a bit from the press release--and notice the bit about the "christening":
We're turning our parking lot into festival grounds for this all-out, family-friendly event. Take a tour of our brewery and Tasting Room, enjoy a delicious BBQ and get jiggy with live good-times-dancing music. ...  At 8pm, we’ll hold a special toast centered on the brewhouse christening. And, the community is invited to play a special part. Everyone’s invited to bring an object that will be placed in a special metal box to be sealed and affixed to the deck of the brewhouse forever. This object needs to fit in a slot measuring 1/4" by 2". It can be a medallion, coin, note, photo, or token, that either represents you or your wishes for this new brewery. With this you will forever be a part of the Crux brewhouse and influence the soul and the sprit of each brew we produce.
50 SW Division Street, Bend, info here.
