Orenco Taphouse Entryway

For the seventh night of Killer Beer Week we take it on the road, or MAX train, to Orenco Taphouse in Hillsboro, Oregon to welcome in Killer Bend Fest. Our eighth event of the Killer Beer Week is one that we are really looking forward to when the taps at Orenco Taphouse switch over to all beers from Bend. Killer Bend Fest takes place on Thursday, October 23rd from 4:00 – 11:00pm.

After loading up the taps last year with Eugene and Corvallis beers for their first Killer Beer Week event, Orenco Taphouse of Hillsboro reloads with brews from one of Oregon’s best craft beer towns, Bend. You will find special brews from well-known outfits such as Boneyard, Deschutes, Cascade Lakes, 10 Barrel, Silver Moon and Worthy as well as some newer breweries like Rathole, Sunriver, and Oblivion amongst their 20 taps.
