Mississippi Street Fair debuts upgraded "Local Brew Garden"

-Presenting locally produced craft beers from seven Oregon breweries
-Located at N Mississippi & Shaver – directly across from the Main Stage
-Proceeds benefit The Boise-Eliot Elementary and Albina Youth Opportunity Schools

Last year’s sold-out organic beer garden was so well received by Mississippi Street Fair craft beer aficionados that for 2010 the fair returns with an expanded focus on “local” breweries…and more beer!

Sourcing regional product is a cornerstone of the fair’s commitment to sustainability – and is an important factor in choosing the beverages served at the event. Festival promoters scoured the state and neighborhood for the best these craft breweries have to offer. Selections include award winners, organically brewed beers and special seasonal offerings. Beverages on tap will be served frosty cold from a beer trailer provided by Maletis Beverage – honoring our seven regional craft breweries with the professional presentation they deserve!

Cheers!

Sunburn Summer Brew
Sunburn Summer Brew is a smooth, refreshing ale – light in color, body, and bitterness, but by     no means light in flavor.

Sunburn Summer Brew is lighter in alcohol, full in     flavor with a crisp finish making this a great beer for festival afternoon.

Drifter Pale Ale
With its unique citrus character, smooth drinkability, and distinctive hop character, Drifter Pale     Ale is brewed with generous amounts of Summit hops, a variety known for their intense citrus     flavors and aromas. True to style, the bittering hops are perceptible enough to give the beer a     crisp, clean, quenching finish, yet also soft enough to keep the beer smooth and balanced.

Taste the craftsmanship in this easy drinking Golden Ale with a smooth blend of Cascade and     Sterling hops and a note of honey malt to balance it out.  If you are a fan of traditional domestic     lagers then this is a good introduction to the world of craft beer.
