Replacing the long running Brewer’s Memorial Ale Fest this year is the new Dog Days of Summer – Oregon Coast Dog & Beer Festival presented by Rogue Ales.
Dog Days of Summer will feature Oregon Coast beers from a variety of breweries, live music, dog events and a bounce house obstacle course for the kids. This two day event will take place in Newport, Oregon on Friday, August 11th from 5:00-10:00pm and Saturday, August 12th from Noon-10:00pm.
Festival breweries include Rogue Ales, Buoy Beer, Pelican Brewing, Rusty Truck, Wolf Tree, Yachats Brewing Co, Bier One, de Garde, Fort George and others to be announced.
Live Music will feature six bands. On Friday night Steve Sloan Band (Classic Rock) and Robbie Laws (Blues) will perform. Then on Saturday it’ll be Ronnie Jay Duo (New Wave Swing), Louis and the Geezer (Blues Rock), Johnny Wheels and the Swamp Donkeys (Blues Rock), and Rock & Roll Cowboys (Country Rock).
And to keep with the dog theme from the former festival Dog Days of Summer will feature dog’s skills and looks – the Cutest Wag competition, Dog/Owner look-alike contest, best trick show and the Dog Olympics.
All ages are welcome and admission is $5.00 at the door and kids are free. Proceeds will benefit local animal charities including Oregon Coast Therapy Animals, Lincoln County Animal Shelter, Friends of the Lincoln County Animal Shelter, plus Portland Animal Welfare (PAW) Team, Imagine Peace for Pups, and Deaf Dogs of Oregon.
