Tetherow’s Sixth Annual Brewery Smackdown Features Crux and Silver Moon Battling Wild Ride and Boneyard

Located just outside of Bend, Oregon, Tetherow will host its sixth annual Brewery Smackdown. This year’s event will take place on February 7, 2019 and will be held inside the Tetherow Event Pavilion starting at 5:30pm.

The 2019 Brewery Smackdown will see the reigning champions, Crux Fermentation Project and Silver Moon Brewing battle newcomers Wild Ride Brewing and Boneyard Beer.

“It’s no secret that Central Oregon has the most renowned breweries in the country,” said Meranda Baker, Director of Food & Beverage for Tetherow in a statement. “As we approach our sixth Brewery Smackdown, our team is super pumped by the opportunity to be creative and prepare interesting dishes to inspire the choices of the four competitors. This could be our best Brew Smackdown yet.”

Prior to the Brewery Smackdown, Tetherow chefs meet with brewers to sample the menu and select which beers pair best with each dish. Different this year, beers will not be announced prior to the event and some of the selections could be from never-before-released batches.

The event attracted nearly 100 craft beer fans who were treated to a five course meal with 10 beers from four Bend breweries accompanying the dinner. In each case, brewers and chefs consulted on the beers served and strove to match each beer to the food on the plate with the audience voting after each course for its favorite of the two accompanying beers. Crux once again garnered top honors in this, the second year of the event… (FoystonFoto)

Each guest receives a dish prepared by Tetherow’s culinary team and two blind beer tasters. After each course, they select the beer that pairs best with the dish. Over the course of five rounds, it’s up to guests, brewers and distributors to crown a winner. Guests can expect to receive a welcome beer, delectable five-course meal and 10 generous pours from the competing breweries.
