McMenamins Old St. Francis School Traveling Brewers’ Dinner Party

McMenamins Old St. Francis SchoolThere’s a cool event in Bend this Saturday the 20th that’s put together/hosted by McMenamins Old St. Francis School: a Traveling Brewers’ Dinner Party that’s essentially a progressive beer dinner around the OSF property and, in addition to featuring McMenamins’ own beers, they’ve invited three other Bend breweries to join them: Boneyard Beer, Crux Fermentation Project, and GoodLife Brewing.

If you like to drink good beer and eat good food, this event is for you. Our own brewers, along with GoodLife Brewing, Boneyard Beer and Crux Fermentation Project, will take you around the property, sampling food and drinks at O’Kane’s courtyard, one of our spacious guestrooms, the Fireside Room courtyard and our onsite brewery.

The cost is $50 for which you will need to reserve a spot by calling 541-382-5174, but that’s a $50 well spent based on the menu/schedule they have posted:

Father Luke’s Room
Double Cross Strong Dark Belgian [Crux Fermentation Project]

Our Pope Vienna Lager [OSF Brewery]
Grilled oysters and a lager mignonette sauce
Crux Pilsner [Crux Fermentation Project]
Mini vegetable skewers marinated in pilsner

OSF Guestroom

Sweet As Pale [GoodLife Brewing]
Mini reuben
RPM IPA [Boneyard Beer]

Father Luke’s Room

That menu makes me hungry just looking at it. This should be a good evening, and a great showcase both for McMenamins and the participating breweries—and a great example of the brewing camaraderie in the community overall.

The event starts at 6pm, so reserve your spot today!
