Press Release: Corvallis, Oregon, is home to Oregon State University that has a rich history in brewing from its agricultural roots and its more recent Fermentation Science Program. The college town will celebrate its beer culture when Corvallis Beer Week returns from September 15-21. The showcase event of Corvallis Beer Week will once again be the Heart of Valley Homebrewers’ Septembeerfest, as it will celebrate its 12th anniversary on Saturday, September 21.
The event will once again take place at the spacious 75-acre Avery Park just south of downtown Corvallis. Septembeerfest will take place from Noon to 7 p.m., with 76 varieties of beer, cider, and mead from 29 independent breweries.
Admission is $20 and includes a tasting glass and 8 drink tickets; additional drink tickets are 4 for $5. For most beers 1 ticket = 4 oz pour. Septembeerfest is a family friendly event, everyone under the age of 21 and designated drivers are admitted free. A paid adult must accompany anyone under 21. Sorry, no furry friends allowed.
Since 2006, Heart of the Valley Homebrewers, a non-profit organization, has donated more than $200,000 to support a number of worthy local charities and organizations. The event benefits Linn-Benton Food Share, Heartland Humane Society, and the Heart of the Valley Homebrewers’ Endowment at Oregon State University supporting scholarships in Fermentation Science.
Without the support of the breweries, sponsors, and the community, Septembeerfest success would not be possible.
