4th Annual Cinco de Micro Returns to Salem

4th Annual Cinco de Micro

For those in the Willamette Valley the 4th Annual Cinco de Micro Returns to the Salem Convention Center on Friday, May 1st from 4pm -10pm and Saturday, May 2nd from Noon-10pm. This spring beer event will bring together local and northwest brews alongside some amazing rare, hard to find national breweries such as Sun King Brewing.

But Cinco de Micro is more than just beer as it also brings in local eateries and distilleries, and live music. Attendees will also be able to vote for their favorite beer. Last year Salem’s own Vagabond Brewing won the People’s Choice Award for its Wild Ride IPA after only being open and brewing for a few months. Vagabond was followed up by Rusty Truck Brewing’s Low Rider Lager and then Barley Brown’s Pallet Jack IPA. Who will take this year’s crown?

This would also make the perfect weekend to visit some of Salem’s homegrown breweries such as Gilgamesh Brewing, Santiam Brewing, Salem Ale Works, and Vagabond Brewing along with McMenamins Thompson Brewery and Public House and the local R.A.M. outpost. Here is our take on the Salem Beer Scene from our visit in late January. This scene is still in its infancy but shows a lot of promise in the young brewers there. Cinco de Micro Logo
