FEATURING CRAFT-BREWED BEER, FOOD BOOTHS, SILENT AUCTION AND LIVE MUSIC
Eugene, Ore. – The annual Sasquatch Brew Fest will offer a select batch of unique beers to taste on Saturday, June 6, 2015 in the Hop Valley parking lot, located at 990 W 1st Ave. in Eugene, outdoors in the Whiteaker Neighborhood.
Tickets to the Sasquatch Brew Fest will be available when the gates open at 12 p.m. for $10. Entrance includes a commemorative glass, two taste tickets and live music. Additional taste tickets will be available for purchase throughout the festival grounds for a dollar. The beer festival is open to everyone 21 years of age and older. Last call will be announced at 10:30 p.m.
The craft-beer festival will feature live music by The Sugarbeets, Mexican Gunfight, Halie Loren Quintet, and the Douglas County Daughters.
“We love hosting the festival outdoors again,” said Steve Ditmar, an event organizer and president of the Northwest Legends Foundation, the nonprofit foundation that produces the annual beer bash.
“The festival revolves around the beer, music, and bonding with a community of revelers with cheers to an awesome gentleman, Glen Falconer, who made us all aware that ‘beer is love,’” Ditmar said.
Besides featuring an opportunity to taste unique, craft-brewed beer, some batches brewed specifically for the festival, the Sasquatch Brew Fest will also feature food booths, a silent auction, raffles, a beer dinner, and a home brew contest administered by the Cascade Brewer’s Society and sanctioned by the American Homebrewer’s Association and the Beer Judge Certification Program. Winner of Best of Show will be announced during the Sasquatch Brew Fest.

Produced by the Northwest Legends Foundation, the Sasquatch Brew Fest is dedicated to the memory of Glen Hay Falconer. Born during a celebration of life of Falconer, a popular and leading Pacific Northwest professional brewer, the Sasquatch Brew Fest is dedicated to Falconer’s love of the rich beer and brewing culture in the Pacific Northwest. Falconer was the skilled head brewer at the now-closed Wild Duck Brewery in Eugene as well as a mentor and resource for home brewers and professional brewers until his untimely passing in 2002.
Proceeds will benefit the Northwest Legends Foundation, a non-profit organization designed to produce the annual festival, as well as area non-profits dear to Glen Falconer, and the Glen Hay Falconer Foundation, a non-profit organization set up and maintained by Glen’s brother, Quentin Falconer. The Glen Hay Falconer Foundation provides opportunities for professional and aspiring brewers to further their knowledge and expertise in the field by awarding brewing school scholarships to worthy candidates each chosen by a committee.
