Oregon Garden BrewerFest11th annual Oregon Garden Brewfest to Father’s Day weekend

SILVERTON, Ore. — The Oregon Garden has announced a new date for its popular Oregon Garden Brewfest, presented by Growl Movement. The 11th annual event, traditionally held in the spring, will take place June 19 through 21 this year, coinciding with Father’s Day. The popular Willamette Valley festival will feature 130 handcrafted beers, ciders and mead from more than 65 different breweries from across the nation. Event hours are Noon to 11 pm Friday & Saturday, and Noon to 5 pm Sunday.

“We have moved Brewfest to June in hopes of better weather and to more fully showcase the beauty of the Garden,” said Brittney Hatteberg, regional marketing manager for The Oregon Garden. “We encourage guests to grab a beer and take it with them as they explore our 80-acres, and by mid-June the Garden will look spectacular.”

Located in the historic town of Silverton, just an hour’s drive from the Portland metropolitan area, the Oregon Garden Brewfest also features live music from a dozen regional bands on two stages, local food, and a Brewer’s Tasting Dinner. The Oregon Garden Brewfest is for ages 21 and over on Friday and Saturday; minors are welcome all hours on Sunday.

Admission ranges from $15 to $50, but all admission packages include a souvenir tasting glass and a number of tasting tickets; see ticket pricing and purchase in advance at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/oregon-garden-brewfest-2015-tickets-13448706443.
