OREGON CITY, Ore.––Dec. 8, 2020––Coin Toss Brewing is hosting an arts and crafts show featuring the works of five local artists this Saturday, Dec. 12 from 12-6 p.m. in its newly expanded taproom space at 14214 Fir St. Artwork will be available for purchase and all of the artists will be in attendance to showcase their wares.
“We enthusiastically opened our new space on Nov. 13, only to have it shut down five days later due to COVID-19,” explained Coin Toss owner Tim Hohl. “Per governor’s orders we can’t use the taproom for indoor beer consumption, but since it’s still considered retail space, we can use it for other purposes at 50% capacity. We’ve talked about doing an art show with some of our super talented artist friends since before COVID hit. Now seemed like a great time to pull it together, especially since we have a beautiful new taproom space to show off.”

Hansen, Wilson and Crist are friends and regular customers.
Capacity at any given time will be approximately 20 people based on the current retail restrictions. Beer consumption will be allowed outside but not inside, per the current state COVID restrictions. Masks and social distancing rules are mandatory.
