OC Fresh Hop Showcase kicks off on Tuesday, October 1st and continues through Sunday, October 6th. The beers will be available to enjoy by the flight or pint; limited amounts will also be available to go in 32 oz. Crowlers.
“As brewers, this is absolutely our favorite time of the beer year,” said Tim Hohl, Founder of Coin Toss Brewing, in a press release. “There is so much delicious local beer happening in Oregon City, we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to show off what our hometown breweries can create with this once-a-year style.”
