Platypus Pub Brewfest

The first annual Platypus Pub Brewfest is taking place tomorrow (Thursday, January 31), kicking off at 5pm at the Bend, Oregon craft beer pub, in partnership with Columbia Distributing. Here’s the blurb from the Platypus:

This event is to showcase some of the many breweries that we have access to in Central Oregon. There will be fifteen beers on tap from fifteen different breweries across the Nation. There will be a representative from each one to talk to you and give samples of their beer that we will be pouring.

We will also be having a raffle to give away some swag from the participating breweries.
