The Brewers Memorial Ale Fest is held in Newport every May. The event is a benefit for the Central Coast Humane Society and Oregon Coast Therapy Animals.
The festival was created in memory of Rogue Brewmaster John Maier's faithful companion Brewer, who passed away on May 20, 2006. Brewer grew up in the brewery and eventually rose to the rank of CEO of Rogue Ales.
