20th Annual Barley Cup Brewfest – Head to Salem this Weekend

Situated in the heart of Willamette Valley hop country, McMenamins has been celebrating great beer at Thompson Brewery in Salem, Ore., for nearly 30 years. From an early pioneer home to a traditional Bavarian restaurant and then as Salem’s first brewpub since Prohibition, Thompson has seen Oregon’s state capital change dramatically in its lifetime. There’s no better time to enjoy a brew at Thompson than at Barley Cup Brewfest, where McMenamins and guest brewers have been asked to send one keg of whatever delicious and special beer they choose. Guests can purchase a glass and tokens to sample the beverages pouring from stations at the cozy bar, and alongside the patio out back and try to determine which one is their favorite brew. The winner of the Barley Cup will be decided by a popular vote among all attendees and the winning brewery will have their name and beer name forever engraved on the coveted Barley Cup trophy.
