International Brewers Day

Don't forget that International Brewers Day is right around the corner on July 18th! Celebrate by patronizing your local brewery (or breweries!) as well as meeting the people who work hard every day making sure your glass is full of great beer!

Oregon Brewers Festival

We are getting close to one of my favorite beer festivals in one of my favorite cities. Join Sacramento Brewing Company (and many, many other breweries) July 24th to the 27th at the Oregon Brewers Festival in Portland, OR. We will be pouring Unfiltered Red Horse Ale at the fest so stop by our trailer and grab a glass!

Last year there were over 60,000 people at the fest, lots of good beer and tons of off site events with some of my favorite brewers hosting great parties. I know I am looking forward to spending some time at the new Hopworks Urban Brewery in particular.

As a side note, how stoked are Shaun & Nico from the 21st Amendment Brewery about the theme for this year!
