Beers Made By Walking is a program that invites brewers to make beer inspired by nature hikes and urban walks. Each walk is different, each beer is a portrait of that landscape. This summer we invited five breweries to go on nature walks. A botanist/herbalist on each hike identified edible and medicinal plants along the trail and these plants were then used to create innovative beers. We invited brewers in distinct parts of the state and the participating brewers are Coalition and Upright (Portland), Flat Tail (Corvallis), Standing Stone (Ashand), and Deschutes (Bend). The beers are experimental in nature

On October 20th, join us as we tap these five beers inspired by hiking trails in different parts of Oregon. The beers will be available together for one night only, from 3-8pm. From 3-5pm you will have the chance to meet the brewers from Coalition, Flat Tail, Deschutes, Standing Stone, and Upright. Visitors will pay per beer and 100% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Northwest Trail Alliance.
