Hellooooo Tacomaaaaaa! This year will mark the 12th year(!) The Parkway has hosted the biggest Bob's Brown Ale release south of Seattle. We’ll have a raffle for some sweet prizes, and best of all, Parkway donates the all proceeds of Bob's sales to Ronald McDonald House Charities, meaning big bucks for a great organization helping kids.
If you want thee biggest bang for your buck when it comes to a Saturday, look no further than the world famous Georgetown Carnival. Sure, you could do a lot of other things on Saturday, but are they FREE? NO. Do they have power tool races? NO. Do they have CLOWN BURLESQUE? NO. Do they have magic, acrobats, art OR an Odd Mall? NO. NO. NO. NO. It’s settled then - see you on Saturday!
Calling all cat ladies and cat dudes, it’s time once again when the Beveridge Place Pub hosts Furry Faces Foundation’s Catsino, which I'm pretty sure is ready for national holiday status. Door prizes, casino style games, snacks and Georgetown employees almost competently manning the craps table! It’s a fun filled afternoon with a high possibility of cats! And winning! Which is the same as cats!
Spring has arrived, which means it’s time for Fort George Brewery to release their annual 3-Way IPA. Why is this important? Well, this year they are inviting all the folks they’ve collaborated with in the past to come celebrate (we’re from the class of ’15), bring some beer, and enjoy the festivities they’re calling Lupulin Ecstasy. In addition to beer, enjoy live music, special attractions and street tacos, and no one can resist a good street taco.
It's Memorial Day Weekend, which means it's time for the 61st Annual Boatnik Festival! Boatnik is a five day festival that features a parade, carnival, fireworks, hydroplane races, and a beer fest. All of those other activities sound exhausting, so just come to the brewfest portion, where we'll have Bodhizafa IPA and Roger's Pilsner on tap. All funds raised by Boatnik are donated to local youth programs, making the beer taste even better!
For those not in the know, OMSI After Dark is a bi-monthly night at the museum for the 21 and up crowd. Every night has a theme and this one is probably one we can all relate to: Guilty Pleasures. Come discover the science behind bad habits and stop by our booth. Sean will be pouring samples and talk about how he picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.
I certainly would NEVER want to meet an angry beaver in the wild, but I really REALLY never want to meet an angry beaver as jacked at the Angry Beaver from Corvallis. That guy is ripped - do you even lift logs, bro? Sean will be hosting this week’s Trivia Night, bringing some sassy Gtown swag for the winners. Sean, whatever you do, stay away from any primarily nocturnal, large, semi-aquatic rodents.
Hard to believe it's been four years since Henry's opened at PDX airport - boy, time really flies, eh? The celebration runs all day June 6th and 7th, but Sean will be there on Friday pouring samples for all you jet setters on the go. There will be a "spin the wheel" for customers to win swag prizes, as well as food specials if you've got time on your hands before a flight!
Head to The Southern Oregon Craft Brew Festival for over 30 breweries, local food trucks, and music. They'll be pouring our Bodhizafa IPA and Roger’s Pilsner 'cause it's almost officially Summer and there’s no better way to enjoy the day.
McMinnville-ites! We know you're partial to wine out there in wine country but you know what they say: it takes a lot of beer to make wine. Swing by Mac Taps where Sean will expound on the virtues of Georgetown beer and the majesty of swag! Leave your aerators at home!
A brand new music and craft beer festival featuring over 100 beer tastings and music from Rancid, Pennywise and Suicidal Tendencies. So, full confession. After being given a cassette tape of 7 Seconds in the Summer of ’86, I graduated fairly quickly to other hardcore bands, including Suicidal Tendencies. In an effort to look cool, I took one of my dad’s white button down work shirts and tried to replicate the shirts pictured on the cover of their eponymous album. Now, for someone that had to that point only been drawing horses and practicing my signature as Mrs. John Taylor (Duran Duran), achieving the skritchy skull art was, needless to say, challenging. It didn’t work out the way I wanted, and I got real frustrated, I tried hard to do it, take my time, but it didn’t work out the way I wanted it to. I may have used more than one shirt, then stuffed them under the bed when the results turned out to be nothing more than disappointing. I can’t remember what happened to those shirts, and my parents never mentioned it. It wouldn’t be until years later I was questioned about drugs when all I wanted was a Pepsi.
$30 gets you a commemorative pint and unlimited beer, some of which will be darn tasty Georgetown beer. There will probably be burritos. Ticket sales support Sun Valley Rotary, which in turn supports Blaine County Search and Rescue, the Community Holiday Baskets Project, the Wood River Rotary Scholarship Fund, and the Hunger Coalition just to name a few.
