Street Pub

Street Pub returns for its 3rd year in Roanoke!! Street Pub is our outdoor pub of epic proportions. In 2017 Deschutes Brewery passed the $1 million mark for total funding that Street Pub has raised for non-profits through their tours across the country. And we are excited to come back and celebrate the community, beer, and music all over again.

This year, proceeds will benefit these great non-profit organizations:

Join us for this free, family-friendly event…

What: Street Pub is a one-stop shop to try lots of Deschutes beers with over 50 taps – from their specialty Reserve Series beers and experimental brews, all the way to year-round favorites like Mirror Pond Pale Ale and Fresh Squeezed IPA, in an outdoor, family-friendly atmosphere! They’ll pair these beers up with culinary creations from our Executive Chef, Jeff Usinowicz and local Chefs from the Roanoke area.

Partners: This year, we’ve partnered with Blue Ridge Beverage, and Hydro Flask, and be sure to visit the ORVIS and Fork in the Alley VIP Lounge.
