Brewer’s Tasting Dinner 2015
The Oregon Garden will kick off this year’s Oregon Garden Brewfest, presented by Venti’s Café, with the 4th annual Brewer’s Tasting Dinner. The popular event will take place on June 18, the eve of the festival, at 7pm at the Oregon Garden Resort. There are a limited number of tickets available to the public at $50 plus service fees and can be purchased in advance here.

The Brewer’s Tasting Dinner serves six courses, each featuring a small-plate paired with a unique beer from one of six selected breweries. This year’s featured breweries include Buoy Beer Co, Crux Fermentation Project, Ex Novo Brewing Co, Ecliptic Brewing, Vagabond Brewing and Wild Ride Brew.

Representatives from each of the breweries give a presentation about their beer during the dinner, which is attended by brewers participating in the festival, industry insiders and beer aficionados.

Each course will be a small plate paired with a beer tasting from one of our participating breweries. The brewers will take a few minutes to talk to us about each of the beers.

After dinner, head into the Fireside Lounge to mingle with the featured brewers and redeem your dinner ticket for drink and food specials at the bar.
