Dogs & Lagers Fest

Down Arrow

We are excited to announce Bend’s first ever DOGS & LAGERS FEST

Friday, August 26th, from 2-8 pm at Crux

We teamed up with our pal Ely, dog mom of Smoky Joe and Alaska, and genius behind The Dog Guide Bend to unleash this fetching event!

Because here at Crux, we love dogs, a lot. So we thought, why not have a dog festival here!? Our brewery lawn is a perfect backdrop to host you, your pups, and dog-friendly vendors all while serving tasty and refreshing pints of lagers.

The Deets: 

Since this is a dogs and LAGERS fest, rest easy knowing that our tap list will be dense and sturdy with crisp lagers for your sipping pleasure.

Here’s what to expect on tap:

👉 Crux Pilz – New-Old-World Pilsner

👉 Bochi Bochi – Japanese-Style Lager

👉 Glacial Pace – Helles

And shhh, (why are we whispering…?) there will be three more special lagers that we will debut at the fest. All you need to know is that they will be delightfully refreshing and all made with local Oregon malts.

👉 Mecca Grade Rye – Rye Lager

👉 Skagit Valley Common – California Common

👉 Mainstem Czech – Czech-Style Pilsner

The proceeds from our lagers will benefit Companion Animal Medical Project, a non-profit that serves unhoused companion animals and their humans.  And FIXBend offers services like spaying and neutering at low costs.

Companion Animal Medical Project and FIXBend will be there to say hi, chat, and answer any questions. Stop by!
