Traditionally held on the third weekend in August, this year’s event was moved up to accommodate the highly anticipated solar eclipse which will pass over Central Oregon.
Each year festival visitors can taste both incredibly rare and popular beers from nano-breweries to some of the most highly recognized craft breweries in the region, in addition to hand-crafted ciders and wine. The X-Taps showcase low-production, specialty beers not available in stores or restaurants.
Admission is free. For beer tasting, you must purchase a 2017 Brewfest tasting package. Mugs are $20 and include 4 tasting tokens. Mugs from previous years will not be filled. Additional tickets are $5 sold in packs of 4. Cash is required for food, mugs and tokens with an ATM on site.
