October Eugene craft beer
Hankering for an autumnal beer? Eugene’s own 16 Tons has a slew of craft beer events planned for October, at their new South Eugene location.
Eugene beer events
- Oct. 13, A Night of New Belgium: Several rare beers from New Belgium Brewing will be on tap including KICK, an Oak-Aged Sour Ale made with Pumpkin and Cranberry Juice. Free samples pouring from 4-6 p.m., with Ryan from New Belgium on-hand for pouring and discussion. All night: $2 pints and $8 growler fills of select New Belgium beers.
- Oct. 20, Stone Brewing: We’re Not Humble: You
are not worthy to sample Stone Brewing’s 15th Anniversary Escondidian Imperial Black IPA (and at least 5 more Stone beers), but you can have some nonetheless. Erin from Stone will pour free samples from 4-6 p.m. Beer won’t be the only sampling, either: Stone Hot Sauces are available to taste and for purchase. $2 pints and $8 growler fills of select beers all night. Free pint glasses to the first 48 pints sold!
- Oct. 27, Ninkasi Total Tap Takeover: 13 Ninkasi beers on tap! Ninkasi will dominate 16 Tons by taking over all 12 taps and tapping a cask. Get taken over with fresh hop beers, oak-aged beers and other unusual brews. $8 growlers, plus live music starts at 8 p.m.
New 16 Tons location: Supreme Bean Cafe
16 Tons has grown. With their mainstay Taphouse rocking and rolling at 13th and High in downtown Eugene, 16 Tons recently reinvigorated the Supreme Bean Cafe, in Woodfield Station at 29th and Willamette in South Eugene. Fresh craft beer flows from 12 beer taps, with coffee, espresso drinks and food also available.
Starting Oct. 13, you can also get your mind blown with new Extreme Beer Tastings, every Thursday at the Supreme Bean. The cafe gets taken over by a different brewery each week, pouring limited edition beers that are powerfully provocative to the palette.
