What started as a small surprise 80th birthday party for world-renowned beer writer Fred Eckhardt is coming back around in its seventh year as one of the most anticipated beer events of the year.

Attendees will be treated not only to a rare assortment of hand-selected beers, but also light fare cooked in beer and a birthday cake, complete with a round of "Happy Birthday", just for Fred. Cheeses, chocolate, candy and even cereal will be offered in abundance so attendees can experience some of Fred's famed beer-and-food pairings.

Our vintage Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout will be on tap!
Tickets are in advance. Entry into FredFest includes a souvenir glass, free ticket for a raffle of bottled specialty beers and four hours of sampling, sipping and story-telling with Fred. Tickets are limited and they will go fast (they've sold out every year to date), so order yours today before it's too late!

As always, a portion of the proceeds from FredFest and any related auctions/raffles will go to a charity of Fred's choice.  The 2013 recipient chosen by Fred is the Oregon/SW Washinton chapter of the American Diabetes Association.
