Eugene, Oregon’s Beergarden taphouse and food cart pod will host the 2019, 4th annual Eugene Brews, Blues & Chowder Fest on Thursday, January 17th thru Sunday, January 20th. Each year the event grows with more support from the Eugene community and their love for live blues music, the finest beers from the Oregon Coast, and exceptional chowders from Beergarden’s five food trucks.

Unique, house made chowders will be on tap all weekend, with at least one from each of the food trucks on site. Each kitchen will have their own spin on chowder with unusual varieties like Spam Corn Chowder from Lani Moku Grill to classics like New England Clam Chowder from The Zingaro.
