***UPDATE - Full beer list is here***

Beers Made By Walking (BMBW) and the Friends of the Cedar River Watershed (FCRW) are announcing the release of nine new beers that are inspired by hikes around the Pacific NW. The beers will be served at a special tapping on October 23rd, from 6-9pm, at Naked City Brewery.

BMBW is a program that invites brewers to go on nature hikes and make new beer inspired by plants that are identified on the trail. Each hike is unique and each beer that is produced is a drinkable landscape portrait of the trail we hiked.

These place-based beers were produced through a collaboration between BMBW and FCRW after a series of public hikes, led by FCRW, with local brewers throughout the summer. Participating brewers and cider-makers that joined in on the hikes include: Big Al Brewing, Brickyard, Epic Ales, Fremont, Hi-Fi, Naked City, and Schilling Cider. Hikes took place at Seward Park, Discovery Park, and Cougar Mountain.

Each brewery will serve their new beer on October 23rd at Naked City Brewery. Additionally, Laurelwood (Portland, OR), and Fort George (Astoria, OR) will also tap special beers based off hikes in Oregon.

Visitors will have the opportunity to meet some of the brewers, learn about the various hikes that inspired the beers, and learn about some of FCRW and BMBW’s recent work. Beers will be sold in sets of samples, and by the pint, until they run out. A majority of the proceeds from this event will benefit FCRW.
