McMenamins 2013 Brewfests
Just like our beers, each festival is unique,
and all of them are fun!
Boone's Ferry Autumn Ale Brewfest
Saturday, November 2, 2013
McMenamins Old Church & Pub (Wilsonville, Ore.)
As the summer months get further behind us and the weather gets chillier and wetter, heartier and bigger beers start to be what people thirst for. With this in mind, we will be convening every first Saturday in November under the big top in the courtyard of McMenamins Old Church & Pub in Wilsonville to celebrate the harvest season and we will offer up ten beers that are perfect for the season just for your drinking pleasure. The ten autumn beers consist of two from the Old Church Brewery and the other eight from eight other nearby McMenamins Breweries. These brewers will all be on hand to share their knowledge and insights on their craft and answer any queries you may have. There will be judges at the fest to impart their will and determine the best beer of the bunch. The winning brewer will be awarded the Boone’s Ferryman Oar as a trophy to display in their brewery for the year.
The fest will run from 2 PM until 10 PM. A commemorative glass mug will need to be purchased in order to taste the festival beers and tasting tokens will cost only $1.00 - one token for a 4 ounce taste or three tokens for a full mug. There will be college football on the big screen all afternoon long in the Old Church but the fun really starts at 7 PM when free live music will be played in the Old Church until the end of the fest. Amazing food specials that pair perfectly with these autumn-styled beers will be available for purchase. This will be the beginning of an enjoyable autumn tradition for years to come.
