Inaugural Central Oregon Beer Week: May 21-27

Most big cities with a strong craft beer culture have "beer weeks" that are jam packed with special events and tastings. Last year, Portland got into the game with the 1st Annual Portland Beer Week. This year, Central Oregon (with a general focus on Bend, Oregon) is holding its first beer week, which will be held from May 21-27.

The full press release is below. At this time, thirteen breweries are participating. The list of events is still under development, so be sure to check out the Central Oregon Beer Week website or follow them on Facebook or Twitter for the latest details. Cheers to Central Oregon Beer!

Central Oregon has one of the largest per-capita number of breweries of any region around, and on top of that a thriving, exploding beer scene---so it's only natural that we also have a Central Oregon Beer Week, a week-long celebration of Bend and Central Oregon's amazing beer culture!

Central Oregon's very first Beer Week takes place the last full week in May, leading up to Memorial Day weekend with Mt. Bachelor holding their two-day Brewski festival featuring great beer from Central Oregon's fantastic breweries. 

Other events are in the works, including tastings, meet the brewers, beer dinners, some special tours, and much more, all in conjunction with the newly-formed Central Oregon Brewers Guild---check out and bookmark the Events page on the website to keep abreast of all the Week's happenings!

If you would like to participate in Central Oregon Beer Week, we would welcome your event! You can fill out our event submission form  on the COBW website to tell us all about it.


  1. I am planning on vactioning around thereabouts near that time, but won't make it to this event, rats! I am convinced that Oregon beer is absolutely the best

  2. Annette, I totally agree. I may be slightly biased...
