Brewing up some fun

Posted on August 20th in News

Must purchase Platinum Package by Aug. 22

by Samantha White
Burns Times-Herald

 

Burns BrewFest will be held Saturday, Sept. 13 at the Arrowhead Plaza in downtown Burns. Festival packages are currently available for anyone wishing to participate in the taste testing. The deadline to purchase the Platinum Package, which includes a T-shirt with this logo, is Aug. 22. The Classic Package will be available as supplies last. (Submitted photo)

The Harney County Opportunity Team (HCOT) is inviting everyone to come see what’s brewing at a new festival this fall.

Burns BrewFest is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 13 at the Arrowhead Plaza in downtown Burns. And with food, music and taste testing, participants will have ample opportunity to tap into a barrel of fun.

 

Putting the ‘fun’ in fundraiser

HCOT board member Patty McNeil said she’s never been to a brew festival before, but she thought it’d be a fun and unique way to raise money for the Arrowhead Plaza project.

Located at the corner of West A Street and North Broadway Avenue, the Arrowhead lot has been empty since the Arrowhead Hotel burned down in 1973.

The property’s previous owners, Bill and Ulaberl Allen, donated the lot to HCOT in 2011. Since then, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization has been working with community partners to transform the lot into a public plaza. Some long-term goals include adding an amphitheater, restrooms, pathways and art to the area.

 

Fun for everyone

McNeil said she started planning Burns BrewFest by conducting research and garnering inspiration from other beer festivals.

However, because of the small size of the community, she said she thinks Burns BrewFest will be unique.

With smaller crowds and ample parking, McNeil said she expects the festival to be comfortable for everyone.

She added that admission to the event is free, and anyone can come eat lunch and enjoy the music.

Available food vendors will include Smoking Pit Barbecue, R&R Cowboy Shack, and Figaro’s Pizza Pub.

McNeil added that shade tents, tables and chairs will be available for festival goers. However, seating will be limited so folks are encouraged to bring their own chairs.

The event’s soundtrack will be provided by RC DJ Music.

 

Breweries on tap

Burns’ own Steens Mountain Brewing Company will serve samples of its Lone Pine American India Pale Ale and McCoy Creek Scottish Ale.

Bigfoot Beverages will offer Atlas Cider, and McNeil said she also plans to have wine available.

Additionally, three Bend-based breweries have committed to commute to Burns for the festival. Deschutes Brewery will supply samples of its Fresh Squeezed IPA and Deschutes River Ale. GoodLife Brewing Company will offer its Sweet As, and 10 Barrel Brewing Company will tempt taste testers with its Apocalypse IPA.

John Day’s 1188 Brewing Company will be on hand to serve Desert Monk and Black Oak Instigator, and Redmond’s Wild Ride Brewing Company will pour its Cole’s Trickle Lager and Hopperhead IPA.

Last but not least, Payette Brewing Company, based in Boise, Idaho, will cross state lines to offer its Mutton Buster Brown Ale and Outlaw IPA.

Taste testers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite brew.

Although the festival is open to all ages, participants must be 21 or older to sample a swig, and tastes can only be taken from a Burns BrewFest beer stein.

 

Festival packages already available

In order to secure a stein, participants must purchase a package.

The $20 Classic Package includes:

• one, 15-ounce glass beer stein with the Burns BrewFest logo;

• eight tasting tokens; and

• admittance at 12 p.m.

The $40 Platinum Package includes:

• one, 15-ounce glass beer stein with the Burns BrewFest logo;

• one T-shirt with the Burns BrewFest logo (available in unisex and ladies’ cut);

• 12 tasting tokens; and

• advanced, 11 a.m. entrance for a “meet and greet” with the breweries.

Both packages are currently on sale at Figaro’s Pizza Pub, Reid’s Country Store, 4B Nursery and Floral, Harney County Chamber of Commerce, and Round Barn Visitor Center.

The deadline to purchase the Platinum Package is Friday, Aug. 22. 

McNeil said the deadline is necessary to ensure that customers receive the correct T-shirt size and cut.

Additional T-shirts will be available for purchase at the event, but organizers cannot ensure size and cut availability.

There is no deadline to purchase the Classic Package. However, McNeil is encouraging everyone to purchase their packages in advance, as only 210 BrewFest steins will be available to the public.

Additional tasting tokens can be purchased at the festival for $1 apiece. Each token is worth one, 4 ounce taste.

The festival will conclude at 7 p.m.

 

Stepping stones

McNeil said if this year’s festival is well attended, it could serve as a stepping stone toward the goal of establishing an annual event. She added that abundant public participation could also entice additional breweries (as well as vineyards and hard cider distributors) to partake in future festivals.

And speaking of stepping stones, McNeil said people can also purchase the bricks that will eventually be incorporated into the plaza’s pathways. She explained that the bricks can be engraved with business or family names or in memory of a loved one.

 

A community effort

McNeil concluded that several local sponsors have stepped up to support the Burns BrewFest, and she encouraged patrons to “get out and do some local shopping to support those who have supported us.”

 


Efforts to raise funds are ongoing

This fall, when the Hilanders score a touchdown, it will be done in the shadows of new goalposts at Corbett Memorial Field.

The new goalposts, dedicated in memory of Mark L. Smith, are a result of donations and good timing.

Smith passed away Dec. 1, 2013, and was a fixture  on the sidelines for many years as a member of the chain gang during Hilander football games. After his death, donations in Smith’s memory could be made to the Burns High School Athletic fund, earmarked for new goal posts.

Then, last July, Cascade Athletic Supply in Medford contacted Randy Fulton of Burns, who had inquired earlier about getting new goalposts for the football field. Fulton was told that a set of goalposts were available at a discounted price, and that there would be no freight charge, which normally would have been a considerable amount.

The only catch was the goalposts needed to be ordered before the end of July to take advantage of the lower price and free freight. Although there wasn’t enough money in the Mark Smith fund yet, “friends of the football program,” with the approval of the Hilander Booster Club, couldn’t pass up the opportunity and went ahead and placed the order.

Faced with a total cost of $4,650, a “Gofundme.com” account was set up on Facebook, allowing Hilander fans to donate to the cause. As of last week, the Mark Smith fund had $1,500 and the Gofundme account sat at $1,750. Fulton said Cascade delayed the billing until October, and he’s confident they’ll have the money by then.

The goalposts have been set in place, thanks to the diligence and hard work of Rocky Wensenk and his crew, and are ready for the first Hilander score of the 2014 season.

While not as visible as the goalposts, a new sprinkler system was installed at the football field. The new system replaces a system installed in 1992 by Fulton and head football coach Terry Graham.

Harney County School District No. 3 budgeted for the new system, and it was installed this summer by Josh Kenyon Enterprises.

In addition to new goalposts, souvenir Hilander football programs are making their return this year. Representatives will be contacting area businesses to see if they would like to advertise in the program, and individuals may also be included.

The VIP parking spots at Corbett Memorial Field, overlooking the north end of the field, are for sale again this year, as well. Two of the five have already been sold. Anyone interested in being a sponsor for the program or purchasing a parking spot may contact Fulton at 541-589-3994.
