Weird Beer on the River


Weird Beer on the River to benefit CMS Caregiving Services

Washougal, WA – Things are about to get weird along the Columbia River waterfront in Washougal… with weird beer that is. Weird Beer on the River will be coming to Marina Park at the Port of Camas/Washougal on July 10 and 11, 2015. The tasting event hopes to attract more than 25 local and regional beer and cider breweries and is challenging them to create and serve their weirdest brew made from ingredients such as fruits, vegetables, candy, seafood, and even insects (food-grade, or course!).
Proceeds from the event will benefit the CDM Caregiving Services, a non-profit agency providing in-home care, adult day services, and other supports for Veterans, seniors and people with disabilities in Southwest Washington, in an effort to keep them living in their own home.
“Fundraising should be fun, and our committee, our brewers, and our sponsors all thought this was one of the more unique ideas to raise money for a great cause,” said Eric Erickson, Executive Director of CDM Caregiving Services. “We have huge breweries like Deschutes, Pyramid, and Bridgeport. We have local favorites like Amnesia, Doomsday, and Mt. Tabor. And we have breweries from Hood River to Astoria, and Bellingham to Eugene. Across the board, brewers were excited to do something different and fun.”
Weird Beer on the River cost $20 per day which includes a tasting glass and 6 tokens for 4 ounce tastes of the weirdest beers ever. Advanced tickets are $17 if purchased before July 8 and are available online at Hours are Friday from 4 – 10 p.m. and Saturday noon to 9 p.m. There will be food vendors, picnic tables and live music with rotating bands throughout both evenings. 21 and over only.
The event is presented by Riverview Community Bank and sponsored by Pacific Office Automation, Bauman Chiropractic, Robertson & Olsen Construction, J.D. Fulwiler & Company Insurance, Waste Connections, Killian Pacific, Bader Brewing, and Shorty’s Nursery. Tourism support has also been provided by the City of Washougal Hotel/Motel tax. Sponsorship packages are still available and feature a special beer pairing lunch on Friday, early entry to the event that day, and access to a special “VIP” section.
