From the Release:
Hundreds of breweries and cideries across Oregon and Washington will tap kegs at the first-ever McMenamins Edgefield’s Inaugural Brewfest. In addition to wandering rows of libations to find your favorite summer drink, festival-goers can enjoy a day full of relaxation and live music out on the sprawling lawn from Portland country band, Gary Bennett & The Coattail Riders and vintage rock artists, Rich Layton & The Troublemakers. Kids and dog are welcome too!
Beer and Cider List:
I was able to sample some of the McMenamins beers that will be at the festival. I suggest trying them!
- 🍺 Plum Loco – Quince cider barrel-aged sour made with plum, hibiscus, and ginger
- 🍺 Ligero Lager – Seasonal Mexican-style lager
- 🍺 Coolship No.1 – Wild ale made with mango, peach, and apricot (also the first beer from their coolship program!)
Overall, there will be a good mix of styles available. I was also able to sample brews from Thunder Island Brewing, Migration Brewing, and Level Beer.

I’ve been to Edgefield for concerts before, and am looking forward to the brewfest experience. It’s a lovely space to listen to music and enjoy beer.
Entrance to the fest will be near the Little Red Shed. There will be beer and cider trailers placed around the perimeter of the lawn, as well as mixed into the trees. On-site food will also be available.
