“Wet Your Whistle in the Watershed” – June 1st 6-8:30 PM

Calapooia Brewing Co. is teaming up with the Calapooia Watershed and South Santiam Watershed Councils to help raise funds and awareness for these two groups that do so much to protect and enhance the rivers that make life in the Willamette Valley so idyllic!

The fun begins at 6:00 and includes music by John Bliss and the XTet, raffles, river trivia and more. There is a $5 suggested donation at the door, and many opportunities to support the watershed councils while quaffing the best beer in the Valley and winning great prizes like T-Shirts, ‘Pooia Pints and Growlers, and native plants provided by the Councils. All funds raised from the donations go straight to the Councils for their educational programs.

The best part…. the more y’all eat and drink, the more money Calapooia Brewing Co. will donate from our own pockets!


(Just a hint that our beer is made from water from one of these two rivers… come to the fundraiser to find out which one!)

A Year in the Life of the Crazy Calapooia! – June 15th and 16th

Although our brewery has been in continual operation since 1993 as Oregon Trader Brewing Co., we will be celebrating the one year anniversary of the rechristening of Calapooia Brewing Co. on June 15th and 16th, 2007. It’s hard to believe it’s been a whole year since Mark, Laura, Sophia, and Nick (and several friends bribed by beer) spent 2 long and brutal days cleaning and painting the Ol’ “Trader” in order to begin its new era as Oregon’s next Premier Craft Brewery. Time flies when you’re working yer butt off!

The two-day festival will include 3 live bands (including the MUCH anticipated return of The Ray Charles Manson Family Feud!), great food, even better beer (including a special release of our 100th batch, created by our astounding brewmaster Mark and made specifically for this celebration), Official Mug-Club trade-out ceremony, give-aways, specials, blah blah blah, yada yada yada… you KNOW it’s gonna rock, so don’t miss it!

Smokin’ B’s BBQ – Tuesdays 5-8

Don’t forget to hop on down to the ‘Pooia every Tuesday night during the summer to enjoy the scintillating flavors and aromas of Smokin’ B’s BBQ. This event is really taking off, bringing in new people every week. The food is amazing and plentiful! Enjoy it in our lovely outdoor atrium, sipping our extremely popular Riverdog ESB (didja know the River Chicken is marinated and smoked in the ESB?) or order it To-Go with a brand spanking new Calapooia growler filled with one of our 15 flavorful and refreshing beers.

New ‘Pooia Gear

We finally have new 1/2-gallon growlers and pint glasses with our logo in all its full-color splendor! Growlers are $5 each and are reusable. The pints are $2.50, and will make a stunning addition to any pint glass collection! 😉
