Fermentation Celebration

The Fermentation Celebration—a beer walk beer in the Old Mill District—with hop filled tastings of Bend’s numerous local breweries. The 3rd Annual Fermentation Celebration takes place on June 18, 2015 from 4-10pm.

Look for 2015 updates coming soon!

We’ll have many many tasty beers, cider from Atlas Cider and Red Tank and wine from Naked Winery. Entry to the event is $20 and includes a FC glass and 9 tickets for 4 oz. pours at any location. Drink packages will be sold at the Ticket Mill the day of the event.

You can buy your tasting package starting at 10am when the Ticket Mill opens, but you'll need to return anytime anytime after 4pm to to have your id checked and get a bracelet. Print the Map and Beer List for the event.
