Looking to get out of town this weekend? Skamania Lodge has just the ticket. The 4th Annual Celebration of Beer Weekend takes place this Saturday and Sunday in the picturesque Columbia River Gorge, featuring 36 beers from 12 regional breweries. “Living in the Pacific Northwest, we’re surrounded by some of the most talented craft brewers in the world,” said Scott Spann, general manager at Skamania Lodge. “Our Celebration of Beer event is the perfect opportunity for attendees to learn more about their favorite local beers and discover new breweries.”
