Eugene Craft Beer Roundup: KLCC Microbrew Festival Special

Feb. 7, 2014, Eugene Craft Beer Roundup

KLCC Microbrew Festival, Feb. 7-8

Fear not, beer fans! Despite all the bloody snow outside, the KLCC Microbrew Festival starts today as scheduled.

KLCC Microbrew FestivalLane Events Center, 796 W. 13th Ave, Eugene, Friday 5-11 p.m. & Saturday 1-11 p.m.

As you can imagine, KLCC has been pouring on perspectives on what’s on offer at this year’s fest, along with discussion of various local beer news and events…

66 breweries will pour over 150 beers, ranging from popular craft beers to rare specialty brews. But the fest is also beyond regular ol’ hops-and-barley beer, with ciders, meads, braggots and gluten-free beers also pouring.

Each year also offers a Collaboration Brew, where local brewers each brew a beer based on a set style or theme. For 2014, the Collaboration Brew is a “Tour of Germany.” Thirteen local brewers each chose a different style of German beer and set a recipe based on the Reinheitsgebot, the 1487 German purity law specifying that beer may include only barley, hops, and water. Take your own tour of Germany at the Collaboration Booth:

  • Agrarian Ales – Roggenbier

  • Falling Sky – 3rd Rauch From The Sun Lager
  • High Street – Wonder Bar Munich Dunkel
  • Hop Valley – Swartz Bier
