October beer events, Central Oregon

Making note of things happening locally this month. There really isn’t much at all; but then, it’s Great American Beer Festival month, too.

  • Oktoberfest Cooking
    Where: Bend Public Library
    When: October 10 (missed the 3rd’s in Redmond), 6:30 – 8pm
    Joan McFadden of Sundowner Catering creates the perfect menu for a memorable Octoberfest. Food tasting and recipes included.

    Limited to 30 participants.

    Free and open to the public.

  • Fresh Hop Tastival
    Where: Deschutes Brewery, 901 SW Simpson
    When: October 27, noon – 7pm
    A huge selection of fresh hop beers will be available for tasting. Admission is free, but the mug (required to taste!) is $5, with $1 per taster and $4 for full pours.

    Jeff has published (re-published, rather, but I like his formatting better) the list of beers available.
