Sun, Music… and Beer: Wilsonville’s 3rd Annual Brewfest a smashing hit
In August, we were able to host our 3rd Annual Wilsonville Brewfest with the Beer Station!
This event was our best yet as we raised well over $13,000 for Wilsonville Community Sharing, crushing our goal of $12,000. In addition, Brewfest was also a smashing hit amongst the Wilsonville community with over 1,500 beer fans in the Villebois Piazza.
The weather was perfect and the beer was cold, as thousands of people gathered to listen to great music. Robby Mayer, The Whiskey Darlings, and The Brian Odell Band provided the tunes everyone was jamming out to all night!
We had 20 breweries at the event serving beer to thousands of Wilsonville residents. Bent Shovel Brewing’s Black Spade Stout took home the prize of Beer of the Year after a dominating performance at the brewfest. The other breweries were: Three Mugs, Vagabond, Vanguard, Vertigo, Zoiglehaus, Ecliptic, Hi-Wheel Fizzy Wines, McMenamins Old Church Pub, Ordnance Wilsonville, Oregon City Brewing, Salem Ale Works, Seven Brides, Pints, Stickmen, Stormbreaker, 2 Towns Cider, Baerlic, Bauman’s Cider, and Coin Toss Brewing.
Also, it wasn’t just the music and drinks that made this event so great, the food vendors were our best yet! Westmore’s Quality Dogs, Slicks Big Time BBQ, Blue Bell Mobile Kitchen, and Miss Hannah’s Gourmet Popcorn Company really brought this event to the next level.
Creating Community at it’s best.
This event is our favorite of the year because it gives us the opportunity to come together as a community, have a fantastic time, and help create community around those that might not have a strong community. The Wilsonville Brewfest is more than just a reason to spend time with your friends and family, it is a great time to meet new people and help build up others. The success that we have seen these past three years truly proves that our incessant effort does make an impact greater than ourselves.
Our 3rd Annual Wilsonville Brewfest was a great success and we can’t wait to start planning for next year. We are ready to set our sights higher and continue growing this event! If you had a great time, please make sure and tell a friend about it. We will be back for round 4 next August!
