Corvallis Beer Week kicks off today at 4PM at Les Caves Bier & Kitchen on 308 SW 3rd St. next to Block 15. Beer Curator Drew Salmi is putting on a killer tap list to get things started right.

Next @ 5:30PM we all grab a banner and continue the Corvallis Beer Week tradition of our Kickoff March as and head up to the NW Monroe Ave. Block Party at Bombs Away Cafe, Brew Station and American Dream Pizza on Monroe!

The March is super fun and we are trying to hit 100 people on the March!! So…come on Corvallis. Grab a friend or three…ditch out of work a little early and come celebrate with us!! I mean really, it’s Monday!!!

The events page is impressive, bookmark it and check it often (as well as their Facebook page) so you can be on top of all the things going on this week. The events run the gamut from beer dinners to releases and tastes to a sensory workshop at Oregon State (their fermentation sciences program) and more, and culminates in a big event: “Barrel“:

Barrel, a barrel-matured beer experience, is happening as part of Corvallis Beer Week 2012 on Friday, September 14th, 2012 from 6:30-10PM at the Odd Fellows Hall in beautiful downtown Corvallis Oregon!  Our goal at the Corvallis Craft Beer Association in creating Barrel was to provide Corvallis with a fantastic event to showcase the Art, Heart and Soui Brewmasters put into creating barrel-matured beers.  We wanted to create an intimate atmosphere where patrons and Brewmasters mingle with one another and discuss the virtues and nuances of these barrel-matured beers.  To do this we have limited the number of tickets for this experience to 300.  Tickets to Barrel will cost $25 and go on sale on Monday, August 20th at 10AM.

Should be fantastic. Corvallis is the place to be this week!
