Dog's, Microbrew & Music
May 17-19 2013
Why a brew festival for dogs?
Why not? The festival was created in memory of Brewer, the faithful companion of Rogue Brewmaster John Maier, who passed away on May 20th, 2006. Brewer grew up in the brewery and eventually rose to the rank of CEO of Rogue Ales. Brewer was, is, an integral part of the Rogue Culture and we miss him dearly. Nobody would have enjoyed a brew festival for dogs more so than Brewer.
It is in his honor that for two days a year we welcome dogs and their human companions to our brewery and celebrate with the best microbrew, music, and food that also benefits the Oregon Humane Society and other dog charities. Join us!
The 7th Annual Brewers Memorial Ale Fest will be held in Newport and will benefit the Central Coast Humane Society and Oregon Coast Therapy Animals.
Last year 3,200 people and 810 of their best friends attended the festival. 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.
The dog-friendly brew festival is held inside the Rogue Ales Brewery and includes 50+ Microbreweries, Live Music, Doggy Musical Chairs, Dog Wash, Dog Dancing and Celebrity dog look-alikes (Rin-Tin-Tin, Lassie, Benjy and of course, Brewer).
