About 22nd Annual Barley Cup Brewfest


22nd Annual Barley Cup Brewfest

This brewfest began 22 years ago when brewer Chris Oslin formulated the idea based on his love of hockey. This event would turn into the Stanley Cup of brewfests! The winner only holds the growing trophy temporarily before it's returned to its home at the Thompson, just like the Stanley Cup. This event turned into quite the community affair, as a local Salem Brew Club would do the judging. We think it's still a matter of public interest as the voting is now done by you! Join us and try 22 total brewfest offerings. There will be 6 ciders and 16 Ales along with a discovery hunt. Also, don't forget to drop your ballot.

Brewery tours & distillery tasting!

About The Folly

The Folly

The Folly is a four piece alt-rock band residing in the Willamette Valley and calling it home. Composed of two lead singers, Joe Kyle and Russ Thomas, the band solidified their line up.

Drawing on their influences of rock, alternative, and metal, the group combines these elements to create a familiar and dynamic soundscape.

In the coming year the band hopes to play shows steadily throughout the Valley and Northwest, culminating in the recording of their first studio album, in the summer of 2013.
