Oregon’s brewers have plenty planned for the Third Annual Brewers Summer Games June 24 (noon to 10 p.m.) at the Pelican Pub & Brewery in Pacific City.
Starting at noon, brewer teams from around the state meet on the beach to battle it out for the Grand Champion Altitude Cup. Each participating brewery brings a team to compete in a series of nine events, including a Keg Toss, a Hand Truck Race and a Yeast Toss (including balloons full of yeast).
The event will raise money for two local charities: the Nestucca Valley Boosters and the Caring Cabin. The Nestucca Valley Boosters supports athletics and other extracurricular activities in local schools. The Caring Cabin is a retreat for children undergoing cancer treatment.
Admission is free, with beer, root beer, food and T-shirt sales going to the charities.
