Oregon City Brewing 3rd Anniversary and Cherry Wild Ale Bottle Release

Oregon City Brewing is celebrating their 3rd Anniversary on Saturday, Nov. 18th with their first bottle release, bands, swag giveaways and food specials. OC Brewing will be tapping new draft beer product as well as releasing new bottles of cherry sour “Coming to Fruition: Cherry.” 

All day Oregon City Brewing will raffle off and give away merchandise while the in-house food partners OP Wurst will feature food specials all day.

More from a press release:

As an avid lover of sours, Oregon City Brewing Head Brewer David Vohden is pleased to release “Coming to Fruition: Cherry,” a mixed-fermentation wild ale aged in French oak barrels for one year. Tart cherries were then added to the barrels for the last four months of aging to produce an extremely quaffable, effervescent fruited sour.

In addition to “Coming to Fruition: Cherry” – which will be for sale by the bottle in the taproom and on draught – Oregon City Brewing will be releasing three new beers on draught: 3rd Story Imperial Red Ale; a Wee Heavy; and an Eisbock aged in Eastside Distilling whiskey barrels.

Music will start in the early evening on the covered patio with Aaron Tackett, Strange Hotels, and Nicolai Carrera and the Celebrators. Oregon City Brewing will raffle off and give away a variety of merchandise including gift cards, glassware, shirts, hats, and more, while OP Wurst will run a variety of food specials all day.
