Ready Your Pint-Holding Hand for Medford Beer Week, 6/12-20

SOCBF logoSo maybe we’re not brewing beer just yet, but we certainly know how to appreciate a good local beer gathering. You’ll find us – imbibing and tasting – next week at Medford Beer Week and the Southern Oregon Craft Brew Festival, Saturday, June 20th.

Medford Beer Week is a citywide annual celebration of the craft beer industry, focused on local and regional craft beers. June 12th-20th you’ll find happenings everyday in breweries, tasting rooms, markets and restaurants around town. Check out the Kickball Tournament or Brews, Burgers & Bluegrass on 6/13, rally your brainiest buds for Trivia Night on 6/16, or sign up for a Beer Dinner on 6/17. Find the full list of events with Medford Beer Week online, and fill up your calendar with events everyday (if you feel so inclined, you beer connoisseur, you).

On Saturday the 20th, you’ll find local and regional craft breweries pouring at the Craft Brew festival – just down the road from our soon-to-be brewery – on Bartlett and Main Streets in Medford, OR. The event runs Noon-8pm, and promises beer, food, and good times. At the door, $16 gets a pint and five tasting tickets (or $14 if you buy early at Beerworks Bottleshop & Tasting Room in Medford) and the event is open for beer-lovers 21 and over. Taste some great craft brews side by side, then take your logo’d pint home to relive the annual soiree over and over again (“Remember that one ale from that one tent in that one area? That was awesome!”).

We’re excited to see lots of local beer fans around town – be sure to stop over and say “hi” if you pass by the brewery throughout the week. We may not have beer to contribute to this annual celebration just yet, but we’re eager to jump into the fun and cruise around town tasting all the other great varieties Medford has to offer. Look out for us at Medford Beer Week in 2016!
