About 2nd Annual Boone's Ferry Autumn Ale Fest


McMenamins has been brewing beers for nearly 30 years, and in that time we’ve had an amazing group of brewers who’ve mashed, boiled and created memorable beers. Over the years, some have taken their skills to other breweries, and some have even opened their own. This year, our Autumn Ale Fest combines past and present McMenamins Brewers. Fourteen fall seasonals will be pouring; eight beers from McMenamins’ breweries and six beers from McMenamins’ alumni brewers, which they’ve cooked up at the breweries they now call home. Chat with brewers, who will share their insights on their craft.

The beer samples will pair well with music by The Fashion Nuggets, a Cake tribute band, performing from 6 p.m. ‘til 7:30 p.m. To top it off, the late set will be Kinked, a Kinks cover band, from 8 p.m. ‘til 10 p.m.

You can also take a tour of the Old Church brewery in the afternoon, and listen to a History Talk at 2 p.m. by McMenamins Historian Tim Hills.

Boone's Best will be decided by you, the Boone's Ferry Autumn Ale Fest participants. The fest runs from 2 p.m. ’til 10 p.m., and we invite you to pair live music with your sampling from 6 p.m. ’til 10 p.m.

About The Fashion Nuggets


The Fashion Nuggets - a tribute to the music and rock 'n' roll lifestyles of the band CAKE. Every now and then, a band with actual personality sneaks onto the modern rock radio... and that band is Cake. This five-piece acoustic guitar, percussion and trumpet-based band delivers all the precision and energy of the real thing, and all located in the Pacific Northwest's very own Portland, Oregon. If you love the band Cake or just wanna come out to hear some danceable grooves, The Fashion Nuggets are the band to see.
