Chelsea is back — along with a few of her brewer friends — giving a one-minute rundown of why you can’t miss this year’s Fermentation Celebration, the biggest one-day craft beer bash happening in Bend, Oregon every third Thursday in June.



The Old Mill District’s sidewalks and storefronts will be brimming with Central Oregon’s world-famous craft breweries serving up over 30 brews. For a mere $20, you can fill up on Bend’s finest beer — or wine, kombucha and ciders — and take home a really cool fluted tasting glass. Nine drink tickets are included and more can be purchased separately. Beer tasting packages will be available for purchase starting at 10 a.m. from the Old Mill District’s Ticket Mill.
