Beers Made By Walking Nature Tour at the Hagens' Confluence Farms
Thursday, July 30 from 6 - 8 pm
Trey and Tammie Hagen protected 62 acres of their family land near Monroe with a conservation easement in 2011. This hike will explore the intact, meandering section of Ferguson Creek that runs through the property, as well as the hay fields and blueberry patches of Confluence Farms, the Hagens’ berry operation. Located in the Pacific Flyway, one of several major routes across North America for migrating waterfowl, Confluence Farms is an incredible place that will take hikers back in time to a homestead in the early settlement days of the Willamette Valley.
We will be joined by brewers from Plank Town Brewing and WildCraft Cider Works.
This tour is limited to 20 adults.
About Beers Made By Walking
Beers Made By Walking is a program that invites brewers to make beer inspired by nature hikes and urban walks. Each walk is different, each beer is a portrait of that landscape. The program happens in multiple cities each year.
This year, Beers Made By Walking chose to collaborate with the McKenzie River Trust on the Eugene-area hikes. Local hikes this summer will be led by volunteer naturalists and local brewers. The hikes will focus on edible and medicinal plants and inspire a series of beers that will serve as drinkable, landscape portraits of the lands and rivers protected by the McKenzie River Trust in the Willamette Valley.
Mark your calendars for the November 5th Release Party at the Bier Stein!
