Beergarden’s Eugene Beer Week Events and 1st Anniversary

Beergarden Eugene Pint bar

One of Oregon’s best new beer bar/taprooms, Beergarden, celebrates its 1st anniversary during Eugene Beer Week and has daily events from Monday, May 30th thru Sunday, June 5th. Beergarden is celebrating with several events all week long, starting out with a Ballast Point Pop-up Pub on Monday and culminating with live music Sunday, as well as a toast to commemorate the opening of the Pub at 5:14 PM on Sunday, June 5th.


Monday, May 30th – Thursday, June 2nd– Ballast Point Pop up Pub

That’s right, A FOUR DAY Pop Up Pub with Ballast Point!

We are going all out and turning ALL of our taps into Southern Californian Lagers and Ales from Ballast Point. Not only will we have multiple types of everyone’s favorite So Cal IPA, Sculpin, we will have nitros, barrel-aged, and pub only beers that you DO NOT want to miss.  Beergarden will literally turn into a Ballast Point Pub in Eugene, OR.  30 different beers will be tapped.

Friday, June 3rd– Lagunitas Pine Box Derby, a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity

Come down to Beergarden to pick up a pine box car to construct and bring it in on Friday, June 3rd for the big race. Lagunitas will set up a 30ft course with official tournament brackets to track who has the fastest rigs. There will be prizes, including people’s choice for best in show, most original, and more. 100% of the proceeds of the pine box kits will be donated to Habitat for Humanity.

As the grand finale, in true Beergarden fashion, there will be a one on one battle between Team Beergarden and Team Tap and Growler.  May the quickest pine box win!

***Kits are available now at Beergarden for $10**

Saturday, June 4th– Santa is coming to town!

Yes, the man himself is coming to Beergarden and he is bringing treats for all you Barrel Aged beer fans and Belgian Christmas Beer fanatics.

We will have rare barrel aged bottles for sale, including Goose Island Bourbon County & Bourbon County Rare, Barrel Aged Abyss (multiple varieties), rare Firestone Walker bottles, and more. There will also be special tappings throughout the day of beers we have been stock piling in the cooler. Think Christmas in June! Live music kicks off at 730pm.


Sunday, June 5th– Beergarden’s birthday party!

We are one-year old, and what a year it has been!  We are so proud to be a part of this community and thankful for the warm embrace. To celebrate, our food trucks will run special menu items to show off their skills. We will have live, family friendly music all afternoon and pour some of your favorite beers on tap. Owners, Colby and Patric will share a toast with you and our staff at 5:14pm to celebrate the official anniversary. Hoppy birthday to us!

Live Music from 3-8:00pm.
