Brewery News: OR: Bend: Deschutes Brewery announces "Deschutes Brewery’s Street Pub" tour dates, beginning with Philly Beer Week

Press Release

... Bend, Oregon – Deschutes Brewery is returning to Philadelphia this summer with its pop-up pub of epic proportions is setting up shop on Saturday, June 11 from 2 – 10 p.m. on South Street and South 2nd Street.  The ultimate craft beer block party, this 402-foot custom bar will be pouring beers from 60 taps in partnership with Philly Beer Week. At each of its national stops, Deschutes Brewery works with local nonprofits to raise funds and gives 100% of the proceeds to aid their mission. In Philadelphia, Deschutes Brewery has again teamed up with Vetri Community Partnership (raised $38,000 in 2015) and added a new partner, South Street Headhouse District.

Not only will there be a huge selection of Deschutes Brewery beers flowing from the Street Pub’s multitude of taps, but there are some culinary delights in the works for all the foodies out there. Deschutes Brewery’s corporate executive chef, Jeff Usinowicz, is teaming up with local chefs and restaurants to create some dishes that complement the many beers being served (think everything from the brand-new summer seasonal Hop Slice Session IPA all the way to the big and bold flavors of The Abyss).

Local, live music from Boy Wonder, Nik Greeley and The Operators, Swift Technique and CRUISR will help to round out the festivities. Look for a special souvenir from Oregon-based McKenzie SewOn, which will be on site creating live, one-off local prints for the event.
