One week after opening its doors for outdoor service at its new satellite tasting room, Alesong on 5thwill host 12 Days of Food & Beer Pairings. Leading up to the holidays from December 11th – 22nd, Alesong Brewing & Blending will feature a complimentary small-bite pairing with the purchase of a unique glass of its barrel-aged beer.
Alesong on 5th is located in the 5th Street Market district in downtown Eugene. This area of town is expanding with a new hotel and a new shopping area that will soon be anchored by a Nike store. The new Alesong on 5th is located on the second level mezzanine above the Pendleton Woolen Mills store and adjacent to the Inn at the 5th. For the time being while we manage our way through the pandemic, Alesong will be serving its beers and bites on the outdoor patio.
After making a visit to Alesong on 5th this past Friday, they have their system down pat. Just walk wearing your mask while maintaining social distancing and the server will take your beer orders and find a seat for you on the patio. Currently the patio features a tent with a few heaters to keep the chill at bay. It’ll be a lovely spot to enjoy a barrel-aged beer in the fresh air.
