This week: Meet me at Growler Guys West, and the Museum Chili Feed

A couple of events are coming up this week that you should check out. First, this Thursday the 13th, I’ll be at the Growler Guys over on Bend’s west side, selling and signing books and chatting up beer and history starting at 5pm. The Growler Guys have changed the face of beer in Bend and Oregon over the past couple of years and I’m excited that GG West’s manager, Cari, invited me to come for the signing!

They are located at the base of College Way at the roundabout, in the Chevron station, and feature 30 taps of excellent beers and ciders to fit any thirst. So make sure to come by and say “Hi” and I’ll be happy to sign a copy of the book for you!

And then this Saturday, November 15, from 10am to 1pm I’ll be back over at the Des Chutes Historical Museum to be on-hand signing books during their Annual Chili Feed and Holiday Bazaar Fundraiser—a terrific event that has been supporting the Museum for over 30 years! Here’s their description of it:

Have a bowl of Millie’s Chili and polish it off with a piece of pie, then stop by the Bake Sale for second dessert later on. Local craft and arts vendors will get your holiday shopping started, our raffle offers chances for great prizes and staycation getaways, and our book store offers local history and historical photographs for sale.

And yes, it’s that time to start thinking about buying gifts for the holidays, so make sure to come down and check it out!

Today is the first signing and meet the author event for Bend Beer and it’s taking place at the Growler Guys, at their original eastside Bend location! From 3 to 5pm I’ll be on hand, signing books and talking about beer at Oregon’s original growler fill station, the one that kicked off the growler craze for the entire state!

So make sure to come down this afternoon, say hi, buy a book, have a beer and fill a growler. As a special treat, the Growler Guys are putting a selection of beers from our local breweries that I picked to represent our amazing craft beer scene. Come on down!
