Brewery Spotlight of the Day: Standing Stone Brewing Company

I'm sure the first thing you asked yourself today when you woke up was "What kind of beer is going to be at the 5th annual Umpqua Brewfest on Saturday, October 18th, anyway?" Because I'm 96% positive the majority of Oregonians began their day with this momentous question, I've decided to begin what the Brew Crew likes to call "Brewery Spotlight" posts, where we will highlight some of the wonderful breweries coming to the Fest this year. So today's Brewery Spotlight is...

Standing Stone Brewing Company is from the beautiful Ashland, OR. We're so excited for these folks to be coming to the Fest & can't wait to sample their unique tasters. For more information, check out the Brewers tab (where we are adding new brewers every day, so stay tuned!)

For the Non-Beer Folks

If you love to dance, eat local grub, & spend time with good company but don't absolutely adore beer, do not fret! You may be a nonchalant beer-enthusiast, but Umpqua Brew Fest is still the place for you. We will have plenty of beer-free beverages available for your consumption, and 4 great bands that will be sure to get your feet stompin'. See you in 11 days!
