New Park and BrewFest Coming to North Oregon Coast
(Seaside, Oregon) – Seaside is looking to the future with plans for a new park along its river. But meanwhile, many in the town will be kicking back and having a few brews with visitors with a new beer festival in early March.
The Seaside Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with the Oregon Brewers Guild, will host “Beach Bite & Brew,” a craft beer tasting event at the Seaside Elks Lodge in Seaside on March 6.
The tasting will feature two parts. The first is a VIP event limited to 50 people from noon to 4 p.m. and featuring four Seaside Chefs who will compete in a “People’s Choice Cooking with Beer Contest.” General admission will be open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. for tasting and the opportunity to purchase a variety of local food specialties. Entertainment will be presented at both sessions.
Expected to become an annual event, the showcase will feature dishes paired with Oregon craft beer.
Admission to the VIP Taste is $35.00 and includes both sessions. The cost is $20 for the evening taste. Both admissions include a souvenir glass.
Brian Butenschoen, Executive Director of the Oregon Brewers Guild commented, said the group is excited to be doing a tasting in Seaside. “
"It is a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate on the North Coast the pairing of excellent food with Oregon’s craft beers,” Butenschoen said. “The associated area amenities make it a complete experience.”
The Elks is at 325 Avenue A, Seaside, Oregon. For additional information and for reservations for the VIP Taste contact the Seaside Chamber [email protected] or 503-738-6391.
