Deschutes Breweryhas a whole slew of booze-centric events planned for their fourth Deschutes Brewery Base Camp, slated for August 25-31. Special engagements, limited release brews, food pairings and a 25 ft. rolling beer barrel that goes by "Woody" will help bring the party allt he way from Deschutes' home-base in Oregon to the Arch City.

Here are our picks for the week:

  • Hats Off to Homebrewers at Seventh Son Brewing, Aug 27 from 5-9 p.m. at Seventh Son Brewing (1101 N. 4th St.): Trade tips and tricks with brewers from both Deschutes and Seventh Son Brewing while sampling beer and food pairings.
