Festivities kick off Monday, June 25, at the Bend pub located at 1044 NW Bond St., for a “super local’s night” with a throwback to 1988, the year the company was founded. The evening will include a toast to the brewery’s long-time pub regulars.

More on Deschutes Brewery's 30th anniversary party

BEND, Oregon –Bend’s original craft brewery is gearing up for its 30th anniversary with a week of celebrations in Bend spanning Monday, June 24 – Saturday, June 30.  (List below.)

On June 27th, 1988, Deschutes Brewery opened the doors of its Bend Public House on Bond Street. Three decades, and a lot of beer later, the company will host a weeks’ worth of local events celebrating   thirty years of craft brewing, community partnerships and the countless local customers who have been critical to Deschutes’ ongoing success. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Mt. Bachelor Ski Education Foundation (MBSEF), a longtime non-profit partner of the brewery.

To anchor the celebration, Deschutes has invited several Deschutes Brewery alumni to return and collaborate on seven exciting new brews. ...

Deschutes’ Founder, Gary Fish takes pride in the success of the collaboration brewers after their time here because they, all continue to make major contributions to the craft industry. “I’m glad they are pursuing their passion and have all been successful at it,” said Fish. “It speaks to their talent and perseverance. Every single one of them makes really good beer, and we’re proud of all of them.”

The Deschutes Brewery 30th anniversary collaboration “family tree” includes John Harris, Deschutes Brewery’s original brewmaster with Ecliptic Brewery, Frank Appleton a brewing consultant responsible for creating the recipes of Deschutes’ beloved brands such as Black Butte Porter and Cascade Golden Ale, Tim Gossack from Bell’s Brewery, Tony Lawrence from Boneyard Brewery, long time brewer Mark Vickery, Paul Arney from The Ale Apothecary, and Cam O’Connor and Larry Sidor now with Crux Fermentation Project.

The guest collaborators partnered with current Deschutes Brewery brewers, Veronica Vega, Ryan Schmiege, Robin Johnson and Ben Kehs to make the unique brews. All were made at Deschutes’ Bend brewing facility.

 “There have been a lot of great brewers that have impacted our process, our mission, our values and our success over these three decades,” said Fish, “I’m glad they’ve chosen to come back to commemorate the time we’ve spent together.” These brewers will head to Drake Park on Saturday, June 30, to help showcase the beer and reminisce about the days at Deschutes.

Mayfest at Queen Ann Beer Hall

Press Release

Monday, April 30th  2018 (Seattle, WASH,)- Queen Anne Beerhall brings the traditional Bavarian celebration known as Mayfest (a lesser known counterpart to Oktoberfest!) to Seattle this spring. This year’s event will celebrate the end of winter and arrival of spring through beer, music, and activities. The festivities will take place on two Fridays and Saturdays (May 11th-12th and May 18th-19th).

Since opening in 2015, Queen Anne Beer Hall has worked to bring a selection of rare beers to thirsty Seattleites and this year’s Mayfest is no exception. Their special selections for the event include Hofbräu Maibock and Hacker-Pschorr Maibock. A spring release beer brewed in Bavaria, Maibock is a traditional beer used to celebrate the changing of the seasons. Beer connoisseurs will want to make sure to arrive early for the Hacker-Pschorr Maibock, as there are only 12 kegs of this rare beer in all of Washington State.

Guests can dance the night away to the live music from the band, The Bavarian Beer Garden, on May 12th from 6pm to 9pm and Colossal Boss on May 19th from 6:30pm to 9:30pm. Attendees can also complete in nightly stein holding competitions where they can compete for glory, gift cards, steins, and lots of fun prizes. If drinking beer rather than holding it is more your thing, take a seat, grab a cold beer and watch the tough ones battle it out.

Entrance is free and open to all ages before 10 PM, 21+ after 10 PM. Queen Anne Beerhall invites you to experience this lively celebration with them!

Rare tapping of Firestone Walker Coconut Rye Parabola at Belmont Station

Rare tapping of Firestone Walker Coconut Rye Parabola at Belmont Station

Come enjoy this racy reinterpretation of the Firestone Walker classic!

The story of this beer begins with a select lot of Parabola racked into premium rye whiskey barrels for extended aging. A year later, the FW crew toasted shaved coconut over coals of rum barrel wood, then commingled it with the rye-aged Parabola for one month.

The inclusion of the caramelized coconut amplifies the natural coconut notes found in regular bourbon barrel-aged Parabola, while the influence of the rye whiskey barrels adds a distinct peppery character. Coconut Rye Parabola is a rare treat, indeed!
