The festival itself will run from 5 to 10pm each day. Entry is free and tasters will vary from $1 to $2. Make sure to bring cash since this special event is cash only.
Mike Coplin, owner of 16 Tons Cafe, says that “of all of the beer events I have taken part in, the Winter Fest is dearest to me because it was the first such beer fest we held at 16 Tons when we opened nearly four years ago.” The 16 Tons crew will serve up more than 50 Craft Beers including: Belgian Strong Ales, Barrel Aged Ales, Spiced Ales, Barley Wines, Imperial Stouts, Imperial Browns, Strong Sour Ales, Traditional Old Ales, rare imports and Winter Style IPAs. If you’re in Eugene this weekend this is an event one should not miss out on.
