(Bend, OR) – Deschutes Brewery is heading back to Sacramento with its pop-up pub of epic proportions, setting up shop on Saturday, October 8 from 2 – 10 p.m. in Midtown. The ultimate craft beer block party, this 400-foot custom bar will be pouring beers from 60+ taps, including taps from guest breweries Rubicon Brewing Company, Fieldwork Brewing Company and Crispin Cider. 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 Sacramento, Deschutes Brewery has teamed up for the second time with Runnin’ for Rhett, a non-profit foundation inspiring people to Move Into Life by nurturing a healthy community through fitness and nutrition.
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 from Chef Ryan Rose of Zocalo and Chef Wesley Nilssen of de Vere’s Irish Pub to create some dishes that complement the many beers being served (think everything from the widely popular Fresh Squeezed IPA all the way to newly released rarity, The Dissident). Deschutes has also teamed up with Rubicon Brewing to create a special collaboration West Coast Pale Ale that will be served at the event.
Local, live music from some of the best regional bands will help to round out the festivities. A kid’s zone for families and a bike valet will also be on site. Look for a special souvenir from Oregon-based McKenzie SewOn, which will be on site creating live, one-off local prints for the event.
