Come enjoy some Pelican beer, featuring our Lone Pelican beer, Bronze God and our new Double IPA, Beak Breaker along with other fine breweries at the Albany Craft Beer Smackdown. An afternoon and early evening craft brew tasting event for the hard cider and beer lovers.
Breweries, distilleries, and cider houses will bring their products into downtown small businesses so that attendees can taste and visit with shop owners at the same time.
Tickets are $20 and the price includes a free tasting glass and 10 tasting tickets. Advance tickets go on sale two weeks prior to the event and can be purchased at the Albany Downtown Association, located at 126 Ferry St. SW or the Albany Visitors Association on the corner of 3rd and Lyon. Loafers Restaurant will also be selling tickets at their downtown venue, 222 Washington St SW. Proof that you are 21 will be required for all ticket purchases.
The Downtown Trolley will be traveling the Smackdown route and you can catch it for free. After the Smackdown, the trolley will run participants to two “after-parties” to be held at the Calapooia Brewing Company and Deluxe Brewing.
Approximately 24 craft breweries and distilleries will be pouring for the event. Ticket proceeds help fund the non-profit sponsor organizations running the event.
