This coming weekend ColdFire Brewing in Eugene will be celebrating with its 3rd Anniversary Celebration Weekend. The brewery’s taproom will be celebrating this milestone from Friday, January 18 through Sunday, January 20, 2019.
During this anniversary weekend there will be special beer tappings, barrel aged beer releases, live music, rotating food trucks and Polly’s Cakes and Pastries.
Here’s a rundown on each of the day’s events.
Friday, January 18:
The day starts off with half priced Cumulus Tropicalus IPA from noon to 4. This is our way of saying thanks to all the fans of this delicious, fresh and hoppy beer! We will be giving out cupcakes made with cumulus and minute after midnight with the purchase of a beverage. Try the suggested pairing or find something unique on your own. Bonus: mini cupcakes for the kids. Stick around and hear one of our favorite local bands, Dirty Spoon, as they bring their hills stomping, knee thumping good tunes to our taproom. Music starts at 6pm. Kids welcome until 9pm. Food Trucks: Twisted Tako and Sly Dogs. Barrel Aged Beer tapped: Seeds of Infinity, keg conditioned with pear juice
Saturday, January 19:
Day 2 gets started with more cupcakes, this time made with St. James India Red Ale and our Yuzu Cream Ale. We managed to book one of our all-time favorite musicians, Mark Alan. Mark’s soulful acoustic guitar and singing will pair nicely with that dinner, desert and bourbon barrel aged beer in your hand. Music starts at 6pm. Kids welcome until 9pm. Mini cupcakes available for the kids. Food Trucks: Twisted Tako and Sly Dogs. Barrel Aged Beer tapped: The Bourbon Council.
Sunday, January 20:
Day 3 caps the fun and celebration with another round of cupcakes, this time made with our Koyo Marzen. Live music will start at 3pm with the Buddeke Family and their folks style band. Bring the kiddos and get the last cupcake fix before it’s over. Food Trucks: Sammitch Barrel Aged Beer tapped: Cellar Muse.
