The Beers Made By Walking Fall Tapping Tour makes its way to The Bier Stein in Eugene, Oregon on November 5, from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. This will be the first time that Beers Made By Walking (BMBW) will host a Eugene area focused tapping event with beers, a cider and a braggot all inspired by various natural areas along the McKenzie River.
The collection of beers, cider and braggot come from a collaboration with the McKenzie River Trust after a series of public walks with brewers this past summer. On November 5, this will be the only time to find all of these BMBW selections all in one location.
