Brew Fest X is Coming up!

Published September 24th, 2019 in Outreach, UW Blogs

The 10th annual Umpqua Brew Fest (UBF X) is rapidly approaching on October 12, 2019. Preparations are underway and we have solidified music, brewery support and many other details. Once again, we are grateful to have FCR as our lead sponsor and will have a booth at the event where you can learn more about employment opportunities at this great local business. Oregon Serigraphics will provide screen printing and UBF swag. This year, we are excited to welcome Fortunes Folly from Eugene, a dynamic, energetic musical performance where music is felt and heard. Also on stage will be local talent Rovers and Dragons and Ken Carloni. Support from Seven13 studios has been invaluable providing our signature “Sammy the Salmon” sporting his mustache and bringing friends. Many businesses come together to help support the event. Breweries including Backside, Two Shy, Old 99. Lookingglass, Drapers, Salud, McMenamins, and North Forty are our local participants as well as The Umpqua Valley Brewers Guild. Bigfoot Beverage and Western Beverage distributors are involved and provide taps, cold beverage and advertising. Businesses that have stepped forward to support us as well are Addcox Heating, Hydroponics, Dry Pro, Motel 6 of Roseburg and Good Vibrations. More to come and if you would like to be a supporter, please contact Kasey Hovik at 541-672-7065 or It takes quite a few volunteers and we will need our membership to support this important fundraising event that so many of UW programs rely upon. Please consider lending your hand to help, whether it is set up, pouring, tear down or sponsorship. We have the foundation, we need the support and help with details.
