Northwest’s most scenic beer festival also makes the ideal gift for Father’s Day

SILVERTON, Ore. — If you’re looking to give the greatest Father’s Day gift ever, then plan on a trip to the Oregon Garden Brewfest (#OGBF). This year’s event, which will take place on Father’s Day weekend June 19 through 21, will feature more than 135 handcrafted beers, ciders and mead from nearly 70 different breweries from across the nation (a complete list is pasted in at the bottom of this release), along with local food; activities including shuffleboard, skee-ball and foosball; and live music on two stages from a dozen regional bands.

Located in the historic town of Silverton, just an hour’s drive from the Portland metropolitan area, the Oregon Garden Brewfest allows visitors to stroll the 80-acre botanical garden with beer in hand. Event hours are Noon to 11 pm Friday & Saturday, and Noon to 5 pm Sunday. The event is for ages 21 and over on Friday and Saturday; minors are welcome all hours on Sunday, when they can create their own wooden coaster for Dad.

Admission ranges from $15 to $50, but all admission packages include a souvenir tasting glass and a number of tasting tickets; see ticket pricing and purchase in advance at
