Eugene, Ore: Starting Thursday June 7th through Sunday June 10th, Alesong Brewing and Blending will be hosting a weekend of celebration at their wine country tasting room (80848 Territorial Highway) to mark their second year in operation. To kick off the weekend, on June 7th at 6 p.m. the brewery is hosting Alesong and Friends, an intimate evening of tasting exclusive offerings from some of their favorite breweries with brewers in attendance! The Alesong team has hand-selected breweries they’re excited about and have procured small quantities of exclusive and otherwise unavailable beers to share accompanied by light food. A $50 entry to the event gets each attendee 10 4 oz. pours (one of each beer guaranteed), light food and a brief panel / Q&A with the brewer guests. The current lineup includes highly limited offerings from: The Ale Apothecary, The Bruery, Cascade Brewing, Casey Brewing and Blending, De Garde Brewing, Jester King Brewery, Logsdon Farmhouse Ales, Wild Beer Co, and Wiseacre Brewing Co.

The weekend’s celebrations will continue with live music at the tasting room on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons and wood-fired pizza being provided by Marché who will also be serving food at the tasting room throughout the summer. The anniversary weekend will feature the public release of Alesong’s second anniversary collaboration IPA brewed with Block 15 Brewing and guests will have the chance to try all of Alesong’s newly released spring beers on draft.
“We’re thrilled to be commemorating our 2nd anniversary and are so grateful to be a part of such an amazing community here in Eugene!” says cofounder Brian Coombs. “We think you’ll really enjoy the events we’ve got lined up for the weekend and can’t wait to celebrate with everyone!”

ABOUT ALESONG BREWING AND BLENDING: Alesong Brewing and Blending is a small artisan brewery based in the heart of Southern Willamette Valley wine country that crafts unique and small-batch beers with a focus on oak aging and Belgian-inspired techniques, brewing both wild and non-wild beers, using locally grown fruits, herbs and a host of special yeasts and other microbes. Once the beer in the barrels has matured, the team samples and selects each barrel individually to blend. Paying homage to old-world Lambic blenders and artisan winemakers, Alesong believes that the final, balanced blend of a barrel-aged beer is much more satisfying than the sum of its parts or each individual barrel by itself.
