McMenamins 5th Annual Autumn Ale Fest

As the haze clears, and temps return to normal, it’s a sign that summer is winding down in Portland. Time to gear up for fall festivities…especially ones that feature beer! Mark your calendar for November 4th and join us to sip on the best beers of the season at McMenamins 5th Annual Autumn Ale Fest at the Wilsonville Old Church & Pub.

Not your average beer fest, this event brings together McMenamins brewers past and present to showcase their best fall ales in a bit of friendly competition known as the “War for the Oar.” The winning brewer (selected by festival attendees) receives bragging rights and an engraving on a wooden oar trophy. While some of the competing brewers have moved on to new ventures, many honed their craft at one of McMenamins 25 breweries at one point or another. Bringing them together family reunion style creates the perfect environment for stiff competition resulting in amazing autumn ales.

 Between pours, you can also enjoy live music from Rich Layton & The Troublemakers, take a tour of the Old Church Brewery – including the recently renovated Undercroft Bar – and enjoy delicious food.
