Zwickelmania 2020

Where to sample the brewtastic goods



Judging by the number of people at area breweries nearly any night of the week, Central Oregonians don't need a special event to entice them to celebrate Oregon's craft beer scene. BUT, we're also guessing that a special event isn't a reason not to celebrate, either.

Sat., Feb. 22 is Zwickelmania, a statewide event heralding the love of craft beer. Thirty Oregon breweries collaborated on a limited-run Zwickelmania beer, to be canned and available at participating breweries. Sales from the "State of Excitement IPA," a West Coast IPA, go to benefit the Oregon Brewers Guild.
