Eastern Oregon Announces Controlled Hunt Beer Tag

October 3, 2011 No Comments  

Haines, Oregon…Eastern Oregon Visitors Association announced today the opening season for hand-crafted beer in the eastern portion of the state of Oregon.  This is a “Controlled Hunt”, and hunters, also known as tasters, are asked to procure a ‘Beer Tag’ in order to participate in this rare hunt.  According to Yolanda Lennon, President of Eastern Oregon Visitors Association, “We are very excited to launch this fun promotion and provide visitors with a great itinerary for visiting the region, while enjoying our wonderful culinary products, including the best hand-crafted beers around”.  She continued, “The ‘Beer Tag’ promotion will continue into the New Year, but its launch coincides with Travel Oregon’s big Fall culinary campaign to encourage visitors to sample Oregon’s amazing array of culinary offerings from seafood to beef, potatoes to wine.  We are happy to be a part of the ‘Eastern Oregon Beef & Barely’ trail, as created for this Oregon Bounty campaign”.

The Eastern Oregon ‘Beer Tag’ can be found at any of the six hand-crafted breweries participating: Beer Valley located in Ontario; Barley Brown’s – Baker City; Mutiny –  Joseph: Terminal Gravity –  Enterprise; Mt. Emily Ale House –  La Grande; and Prodigal Son in Pendleton.  Once a ‘Beer Tag’ is procured at one of the participating breweries or by downloading from the EOVA website (eova.com), hunters (aka Beer Tasters) are invited to hunt at any of six Eastern Oregon micro-breweries.  After tasting is completed , the brew master will stamp the ‘Beer Tag’ with the official Eastern Oregon stamp.  Upon visiting at least four of the six hunting locations, the hunter (aka Taster) will be awarded a fabulous koozie for keeping his or her Eastern Oregon beer cool, in preparation for future hunts.

“Some places have ‘Ale Trails’.  Other places have ‘Beer Passports’.  In Eastern Oregon, we have a ‘Beer Tag’”, stated Ms. Lennon.
