Virtual Zwickelmania 2021 - Statewide Edition
Join us for a virtual version of one of our favorite annual events - Zwickelmania!
February usually brings two of our favorite things: Oregon Craft Beer Month and Zwickelmania. Seeing as we aren't able to see you in-person this year, we've gathered some of Oregon's finest brewers (virtually of course!) for an afternoon of panel discussions and beer tastings. You'll be able to join us for FREE via our zoom platform or watch it via our Facebook page.
Below is our schedule for the day:
12:00pm: Brewer Panel with Ryan Schmiege (Cascade Lakes Brewing), Bill Bartman (Barsideous Brewing), Michael "Curly" White (Wild Ride Brewing) , and Aaron Gillham (Yachats Brewing)
12:30pm: Tasting Panel with Cat Wiest (Pelican Brewing) and Ryan Schmiege (Cascade Lakes Brewing)
