Just as the title says: Stu will be appearing with the El Kabong Orchestra at the SeptemBEERfest, Saturday, 9/25 at the Benton County Fairgrounds. There will be 50 kinds of beer to sample, as well as food and entertainment.
Stu mentions on Facebook: The fest goes from 2 pm to 10 pm. El Kabong is slated to start at about 7:30 pm. ... this event is a fund-raiser for Linn-Benton Food Share. Everybody eats!
From gazzettetimes.com: CORVALLIS -- About 1,200 microbrew-beer connoisseurs and crafters are expected ... for the third annual Septembeerfest. Organized by the Heart of the Valley Homebrewers club, the event brings together those who know the meaning of terms such as grain bill, sparge and wort ... Participants can select samples from among almost 50 specialty beer varieties not available in major grocery aisles.
...in addition to many local and regional microbreweries, samples will come from California, Hawaii and Pennsylvania. Even five beers from the prestigious Weihenstephan Brewery of Freising, Germany, which dates back to the year A.D. 1040, will be available.
What will not be available this year is home-brewed beers, the result of the Oregon Liquor Control Commission’s stepped-up enforcement of a 1979 law which limits consumption of homebrewed beer to the place where it was made. That is a restriction that homebrewers hope to repeal.
...To encourage designated drivers to attend, they have waived the $10 admission fee for them. ...Music will be courtesy of Wild Hog in the Woods, the Beaver Country Hot Air Band and the El Kabong Orchestra.
I found this information heartening: A shuttle will pick up those headed for Septembeerfest every half hour ... Corvallis Transit buses will be running free on Saturday ... Tasting is under tents, so that rain would not stop the fun ...
Did anybody see Katie Duck's Kidnap in Amsterdam last night?
