About SMaSH Fest

SMaSH Fest is a festival for brewers by brewers, and an opportunity for craft beer lovers to enjoy very limited edition beers - mostly brewed just for this event. It's also a way for us to give back to the less fortunate in our community. $2.50 of every ticket sold goes toward our local shelter The Bethlehem Inn. It's a great way to supplement our yearly donations to this great organization and an awesome way for you to taste some special beers and help out a fellow human.

SMaSH Fest is open to all ages (21+ to taste) and breeds (pet friendly) and takes place in the cozy courtyard of O'kanes rain or shine. Beers are stationed around the courtyard, each with a ballot box for you to cast your vote for the much coveted People's Choice Award!

And about that award - it's customary for the previous years winner to brew the Official Central Oregon Beer Week Brew! This beer is truly unique to Central Oregon and will only be available during Beer Week at specified pubs, growler stations, and breweries. So good!

Live music, great beer, good cause! Cheers!

Live Music

The Cutmen - 5:30 p.m. 'til 8:30 p.m.

What's a SMaSH?

SMaSH is an acronym for "Single Malt and Single Hop". Why SMaSH? The idea is to break brewing down to its basic elements and emphasize the flavor of a single malt and single hop variety. SMaSH emphasizes the flavor of a single malt and a single hop, letting both the brewer and you understand what each bring to the beer.

Some styles like Pilsners, Lagers, and IPAs work better as SMaSH beers than others do, but the style chosen by our participating Oregon brewers is entirely up to them, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Stop by our SMaSH Fest for a chance to taste every one of these beers!
