June 15, 2016 – Bend, Oregon – Deschutes Brewery is heading to Columbus, Ohio with its pop-up pub of epic proportions setting up shop on Saturday, July 9 from 2 – 10 p.m. at Genoa Park. The ultimate craft beer block party, this 402-foot custom bar will be pouring beers from 60 taps, including a guest tap from local Land Grant Brewing. At each of its national stops, Deschutes Brewery works with local nonprofits to raise funds and gives 100% of the proceeds to aid their mission. In Columbus, Deschutes Brewery has teamed up with Mid-Ohio Foodbank to help them achieve their goal of a hunger-free and healthier community. For every dollar raised Mid-Ohio will be able to provide 4 meals for the local community, so the more beer sold the more families fed.
Not only will there be a huge selection of Deschutes Brewery beers flowing from the Street Pub’s multitude of taps, but there are some culinary delights in the works for all the foodies out there. Deschutes Brewery’s corporate executive chef, Jeff Usinowicz, is teaming up with local chefs Mike Frame of 101 Beer Kitchen and Mike Suclescy and Chris DeVol of The Thurman Café to create some dishes that complement the many beers being served (think everything from the brand-new summer seasonal Hop Slice Session IPA all the way to the big and bold flavors of Black Butte XXVI, XXVII & XXVIII - a three-year vertical of the imperial Black Butte Porter Anniversary beers).
Local, live music from Mojoflo, The 4ontheFloor, Brave Weather and The Buzzard Kings will help to round out the festivities. Look for a special souvenir from Oregon-based McKenzie SewOn, which will be on site creating live, one-off local prints for the event.
