Raise a glass to summer in Oregon!

Join Oregon Wild and our Brewshed® Partners at the following events to celebrate local craft beer and the wild watersheds that make it possible:

Eugene Beer Week:

  • Saturday, June 4th - Upper McKenzie/Tamolitch Pool Brewshed Hike
    Celebrate Eugene Beer Week by taking in the clear blue waters of the McKenzie River, lava flows, gorgeous old-growth forest, and stunning geology on this quintessential hike in Eugene’s brewshed®. We’ll hike through a lava flow now covered in an ancient cedar forest, and discover the McKenzie’s most unique feature – where the river bubbles up from underground in a crystal clear blue pool. Sign up for the hike here.

    After the hike, join other clean water lovers at Claim 52’s Abbey in downtown Springfield for a special beer release benefiting the Oregon Brewshed® Alliance.

Portland Beer Week:

  • Thursday, June 9th - PDX Beer Week Kickoff Party
    Come on down to Portland Brewing in NW to kick off PDX Beer Week! Live music on the patio, raffles, and beer specials from 4pm to 10pm. Plus 10% of your purchases will go back to the Oregon Brewshed® Alliance!
     
  • Friday, June 10th - Brewshed® Tap Takeover at The Civic Taproom
    The Civic Taproom & Bottle Shop is hosting a Brewshed® Alliance tap takeover for PDX Beer Week! Try beers from Oregon Brewshed® Alliance partner breweries, including beers crafted especially for the Alliance initiative. This fundraising event goes from 5-10 p.m. If you missed the Oregon Brewshed® Brewfest on May 18th, this is a great way to try some of the amazing beers our partners are crafting and check out the awesome Civic Taproom - another new Alliance Brewing Community Partner!
     
  • Saturday, June 11th - Craft Beer Trivia Night with Geeks Who Drink
    We're back at the Portland Brewing Taproom for a special Quiz for a Cause with the crew from Geeks Who Drink! Test your knowledge of useless facts at a traditional pub quiz with beer-themed bonus questions from 7-10 p.m. and help raise some monies for forest watershed protection at the same time.
