The 2015 Eastern Oregon Beer Festival will once again hold a silent auction to benefit the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation’s Brewing Scholarship program, a non-profit organization created to commemorate and celebrate the life, interests, and good works of a well-loved and leading Northwest brewer.In 2015, the Foundation is offering two educational scholarships to the World Academy of Brewing at the Siebel Institute and one to the American Brewer’s Guild. EOBF participating breweries are generously providing brewery merchandise and bottles to be auctioned off to benefit this cause, which is near and dear to all Oregon breweries. The auction will end at 4pm Saturday, so be sure to get your bids in early. CASH ONLY. We’ve set a goal of $1,000 for this year, and we will present a check at the Sasquatch Brew Fest,held in conjunction with the Oregon Brewers Festival in July. Please support this worthy, beer-centric cause.

Cascade Brewing from Portland, OR will be pouring Black Cap Raspberry and Raspberry Wheat!
Black Cap Raspberry is a Northwest style sour blond ale barrel aged for 28 months before spending an additional two months on 300+ pounds of Black Cap Raspberries.
Vinous then sweet aromas of tart raspberries, followed by sharp, acidic notes of tart berries and leather on the palate lead to a sharp, dark berry presence and a finish with a prolonged dry fruit note. Black Cap Raspberry will be tapped Friday at 6pm, don’t expect it to last long! Pucker Up and Join the Sour Revolution!
Raspberry Wheat is crisp, refreshing wheat beer fermented with real raspberries. Aromas of bright, tart raspberries are noticed up front. Sweet, then tart raspberries dance on the palate, then give way to a sparkling tart berry finish. Just right for a warm Eastern Oregon summer afternoon.
