McMenamins 2nd Annual Boone's Ferry Autumn Ale Fest

It's cool outside in more ways than one!
Autumn really is my most favorite season. The colors, the crisp weather, football, Halloween – what's NOT to love? Okay, all of those leaves that have to be raked up and bagged, but otherwise, it's a great time of year.

One thing I really do look forward to in the Fall is the seasonal release of McMemamins always amazing Black Widow Porter. Delicious stuff! Have you had any yet? If not, you should get yourself over to a McMenamins and try a pint. It's quite stellar this year! 

McMenamins certainly does Autumn right, and they should. They've had plenty of practice. With a long, long history of brewing here in Oregon, it's not surprising that many brewers who got their start at McMenamins have gone on to open very successful brewing operations of their own.

The 2nd Annual Boone’s Ferry Autumn Ale Fest at McMenamins Old Church & Pub on November 8th showcases McMenamins’ 30 years of brewing by celebrating the brewers themselves! Combining past and present McMenamins’ brewers, fourteen fall seasonals will be available – eight beers from McMenamins’ breweries and six beers from alumni brewers, which they’ve cooked up at the breweries they now call home.

Guests can mingle with (past and present) brewers, chat about the craft and enjoy live music from The Fashion Nuggets, a Cake tribute band, and Kinked, a Kinks cover band.

Seriously? A Kinks cover band? Free admission? I'm going just for that!

To top things off, guests will determine the best ale of the festival, aka, Boone’s Best!

When: Saturday, November 8, 2014 from 2-10 p.m.; live music starts at 6 p.m. 
Where: McMenamins Old Church & Pub, 30340 SW Boones Ferry Road, Wilsonville, OR 97070
Cost: Free to attend; cost to sample 
Attendance: All welcome; 21 & over to drink the ales
