Mt. Hood Meadows Spring Brew Fest

Even with snow in this week’s forecast, Meadows has turned the knob to spring and the celebration formally kicks off this Saturday with the annual Spring Brew Fest. A dozen of the Northwest’s favorite craft brewers will be serving up seasonals and favorites from noon to 4 PM on the Sun Deck. The “bad” weather option (meaning if it is snowing) is to bring it into the Vertical restaurant, which offers a full mountain view through the two story high, floor to ceiling, wall-to-wall glass window.

Keegan Smith and the Fam will be laying down some funky fun music and we have awesome raffles and giveaways. Admission is $14 which includes a keepsake Meadows Brewfest mug and 4 drink tickets good for 4oz of beer. Additional drink tickets can be purchased for $1. Join us for a fun filled afternoon!
