Brewer's Memorial Ale Fest in Newport, Oregon
Dogs, Microbrews, Music.
The 7th Annual Brewers Memorial Ale Fest will be held in Newport and will benefit Oregon Coast charities.
Last year 3,200 people and 810 of their best friends attended the festival. The festival was created in memory of Rogue Brewmaster John Maier's faithful companion Brewer, who passed away on May 20, 2006. Brewer grew up in the brewery and eventually rose to the rank of CEO of Rogue Ales.
The dog-friendly brew festival is held inside the Rogue Ales Brewery and includes 50+ Microbrews, Live Music, Doggy Musical Chairs, Dog Wash, Dog Dancing and Celebrity dog look-alikes (Rin-Tin-Tin, Lassie, Benji and of course, Brewer).
