McMenamins is preparing for the fall as the summer winds down, you can look forward to November 4th and the McMenamins 5thAnnual Autumn Ale Fest. Held in Wilsonville, Oregon at the Old Church & Pub, it’s a family friendly event for all.
More from the press release:
Not your average beer fest, this event brings together McMenamins brewers past and present to showcase their best fall ales in a bit of friendly competition known as the “War for the Oar.” The winning brewer (selected by festival attendees) receives bragging rights and an engraving on a wooden oar trophy. While some of the competing brewers have moved on to new ventures, many honed their craft at one of McMenamins 25 breweries at one point or another. Bringing them together family reunion style creates the perfect environment for stiff competition resulting in amazing autumn ales.
Between pours, you can also enjoy live music from Rich Layton & The Troublemakers, take a tour of the Old Church Brewery – including the recently renovated Undercroft Bar – and enjoy delicious food.
