Description

We’re bringing back our old Heurich Oktoberfest celebration, but with a new twist: our Senate Beer revival will be fully available to the public for the first time, and we’ve asked some new partners to help us celebrate!

On September 21st from 1-4pm our Oktoberfest-style biergarten festival will take place in our Castle Garden and feature Senate Beer plus brews from Sankofa Beer Company, Red Bear Brewing Co., ANXO Cidery, Silver Branch Brewing Co., Supreme Core Cider, Crooked Run Brewing and Streetcar 82. Owners and representatives of these breweries and cideries will be onsite. During a VIP hour, meet Tom Shellhammer from Oregon State Fermentation Science Department who helped develop the Senate Beer recipe based on historic documents. All tickets include unlimited tastings and full-pours, a meal from Helga's Catering of grilled bratwurst on a roll (sauerkraut & mustard optional), and a pretzel.

Senate Beer, the most historically and scientifically accurate beer revival we know of, is based on a 20-page-laboratory-report from 1948. This hometown favorite, Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. Senate Beer brand, was popularized in the 1890s, survived Prohibition, and was produced until 1956. The museum initially released the beer in June 2019 at a taste test where they collected data from their guests which will inform the final recipe.
