24th Annual Hillsdale Battle for the Belt

February 25 @ 11:00am-February 26 @ 1:00am

Did you know that the VERY FIRST brewfest in all of Oregon happened at the Hillsdale pub in 1985. We celebrate the 24th Hillsdale Brewfest Battle of the Belt this Saturday, things have changed a lot since then but we still party in the parking lot!

Read the history of the first here: http://www.mcmenamins.com/blog/2014/3/4/171-The-First-But-Not-the-Last

Many of the finest beers from McMenamins’ breweries will be sent in to battle, their brewers vying for bragging rights as well as the notorious championship belt. Patrons order trays of beer samples, arranged from lightest to darkest. It is our guests’ official duty to decide who deserves the coveted title. The beers cover the spectrum of brew styles – from hefeweizen to oatmeal stout, barleywine to smoked amber ale and beyond. Each taster casts one ballot that lists his or her top three choices. (And beware the brewers’ shameless vote-mongering. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.)

So head to the Hillsdale Brewery & Public House in February to drink, vote and be merry – and may the best brewery win.
