Zwickelmania 2011!

Next Saturday (2/19), brewers across Oregon will participate in Zwickelmania.

If you don't know what a zwickel is and are pondering why it deserves a mania, you've come to the right place.  A zwickel is a valve on the side of fermentation tank.  Opening this valve allows one to quickly get sample of beer from the tank.  Why does it deserve a special event?  This is Oregon.  Why not?!?

From 11am - 4pm on 2/19, brewers will open their doors and offer unique opportunities to tour their breweries, sample beer, chat with brewers, and engage in a cornucopia of beer-related activities.

For a complete listing of participating brewers, as well as a description of their activities, check out these links:

It gets even better....  Free bus tours will be offered in Portland and Eugene!   Check out the Oregon Brewers Guild link for details about tour itinerary and timings.  This is a one day event, so mark your calendars and don't miss it!

Long live the Zwickel!
