Pelican’s Sixth Annual Brewers Summer Games June 20. You know what this means? Beach, brews, and bribes. On top of that, it’s a whole lotta fun for a good cause.
The beach: one of Oregon’s most majestic beaches that features picturesque sand dunes to complement the imposing Haystack Rock. A sunset not to miss!
The brews: Pelican is one of the best breweries in Oregon, not only for its phenomenal locale, but a boatload of medals are a testament to the skills of its esteemed brewers. On this weekend, more killer beers from all over the Northwest will be on display while folks from the brewing community test their athletic prowess.
Bribes: Not only do the judges accept bribes from the participating teams in the event, they encourage them. So who will win this year? Will it be the hometown favorites and last year’s winners Beer Watch? Will it be a pack of brawny, beer swilling distributors? Find out at one kick ass festival/party that features keg sled tows, yeasty balloon tosses, and an assortment of other skill tests of mind, muscle, and liver that are unique to the Oregon Brewers Games.
From a recent press release sent by Kate Kauffman of Coates Kokes:
