Deschutes Reserve Happy Hour

Enjoy a different featured beer each day. Deschutes Brewery will be shipping in beer from their private reserve collection. These brews are shipped all the way from Bend, Oregon specially for GO Fest. Only ONE KEG daily will be tapped for each selection and there may be a slightly higher price point involved, but we assure you it will be totally worth it. Even though these beer typically cost $10+ to try normally, you can get a 10oz pour at GO Fest for just one normal beer token.

  • This event will take place Friday, October 13th at 2 PM, and Saturday, October 14th at both 1 and 5 PM.
