This Saturday there two back-to-back events that I’ve got going on which should make for a fun day.
First up is a book signing at Worthy Brewing, one of Bend’s newest breweries (not even two years old yet!) that has one of the most amazing properties in town, with their hop yard, beer garden, greenhouse, 30-barrel brewery and expansive space, and great restaurant pub. From 1 to 3pm I’ll be on hand, selling and signing books—the perfect lunch hour break! So if you’re needing to take a break from holiday shopping, come over to Worthy from 1 to 3, grab a bite and a beer and say hello. And buy a book or two (or three)—it makes a great gift! You can get some of your shopping done while enjoying a beer—what’s better than that?
To sweeten the pot, Worthy will have a special firkin cask of beer on tap for the signing as well: their Eastside Pale Ale on French oak spirals. And a food pairing: Fresh Halibut Steak, basked with a lemon caper sauce, served with sautéed seasonal veggies and wild rice.
Don’t miss it!
Immediately afterward, I’ll be heading over to the west side to GoodLife Brewing for the Central Oregon Winter Beer Festival, where they have been kind enough to let me set up a table and sell some books. I should be there from 4 until 9pm when the Fest ends, so make sure to come by and check out the book and say “Hi.”
The Winter Beer Fest costs only $10 to enter, and you get the glass and first four tasting tokens with that. Additional tokens are $1 each. Almost all of Central Oregon’s breweries, plus Atlas Cider, will be there, pouring their winter specialties. I don’t have Atlas Cider in the book, but I wrote about everyone else—so enjoy their beer, then pick up a book to read more about those that brewed it!
