5th Annual Sabertooth Microfest Brings Together Beer + Live Music

Music and beer are always a great pairing and now for the fifth consecutive year, McMenamins will bring its Sabertooth Microfest to the Crystal Ballroom. This year’s installment of the Sabertooth Microfest will take place on one day, Saturday, May 4, 2019 that will be headlined by the Melvins. Sabertooth Microfest will bring together mind-altering, psychedelic stoner rock in collaboration with musically inspired beers from many of the performing bands all brewed by McMenamins brewers.

The 5th annual Sabertooth Microfest will feature activities for half-day and all-day pass holders with beer tastings starting at 3:00pm and music starting at 4:30pm. Check the schedule for more details. Attendees can wander freely between Lola’s Room and Crystal Ballroom with beers in hand sampling from Session Ales to Stouts.
