One of the Willamette Valley’s top beer bars and bottleshops is preparing for the Inaugural Bier Stein Invitational Beer Fest. The Bier Stein Bottleshop & Pub will take it outdoors on Saturday, August 13, from Noon to 8:00pm when it hosts its first beer fest in it adjoining parking lot in Eugene, Oregon.

For its first invitational, The Bier Stein has invited 32 Oregon breweries to each pour two unique beers each. The staff at The Bier Stein is bringing in beers that are not part of the normal flagship lineup from each of the breweries. Therefore the beers that will be featured are said to be either seasonal, one-off, cellared, barrel-aged, and “altered” beers. And if you want to learn more about each of these beers a brewer or representative of nearly every brewery will be pouring beer from the opening until 3:00pm.

The list of breweries include the following.

  • 2 Towns Ciderhouse
  • Agrarian Ales
