SATURDAY, AUGUST 11th, 2018
This year’s 10th annual Oakridge Keg & Cask Festival event will, again, be even bigger and better! This event will start kicking things off at 3 p.m. and rockin’ until 11 p.m. on East 1st Street between Oak and Alder in Oakridge’s Uptown District. With the breathtaking Willamette Forest as a backdrop, the event will be showcased by an exceptional assortment of MICROBREWED BEERS and REGIONAL WINES being served. Our beer guru, Ben Beamer, visits breweries from Northern California to Washington, acquiring little-known specialty beers to satisfy even the most snobbish of beer drinkers. These will be beers that you won’t find in your local retail establishments!
Music starts @ 3PM and goes continuously till 11PM. It all happens right on 1st Street in the heart of the Festival. All types of music for all types of folks! BIG thanks to the Oakridge School District for sponsoring the stage and to the Brewers Union 180 for providing the sound.
