Where can you sip over 25 high gravity IPAs, stouts and ciders while relaxing by the fireside in a wintry wonderland? No place other than McMenamins’ Fourth Annual High Gravity Extravaganza brewfest at Old St. Francis School on January 14, a celebration of big, bold ales and cider in Bend, Ore.
Come to the fest between 1-5 p.m. when you can “Meet the Brewers” and mine the professionals for their trade secrets – don’t miss chatting with Tom Johnson of McMenamins Roseburg about his Gimme Shelter Baltic Porter and the Keith Richards quote that inspired it, or GoodLife Brewing’s Scotch on Scotch, a Scottish Heart Scotch Ale aged in a Scotch Barrel for six months with an ABU of 9.5%!
