Crafted for Community: Brewery brings the World’s Biggest Pop-up Pub to Wisconsin for the first time to support local nonprofits
BEND , OREGON, USA, June 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Deschutes Brewery is bringing its 400-foot-long Street Pub to downtown Milwaukee Wisconsin on July 22 from 2-10 p.m. For its 2017 tour, the brewery has added title partners that share its culture, sustainability and philanthropic goals: Hydro Flask, Humm Kombucha and KEEN Footwear. During the one-day event, Deschutes Brewery and its partners will work to raise money for the Hunger Task Force, Milwaukee's free and local food bank and anti-hunger advocate, and the Westown Association, which champions the economic and social development of the Westown area.
Not only will there be a huge selection of Deschutes Brewery beers flowing from the Street Pub’s multitude of taps, but visitors can find guest taps from local favorites Third Space Brewing and Lakefront Brewery (gluten free). Culinary delights are in the works for all the foodies out there from Deschutes Brewery’s Corporate Executive Chef, Jeff Usinowicz, who is teaming up with Chef Shay Linkus from Vanguard and other Milwaukee local chefs for live “cooking with beer” demos throughout the day.
Deschutes has partnered up with 88NINE, Milwaukee’s own nonprofit radio station, to bring an amazing line-up of local bands to keep everyone moving to the beat. A kid’s zone for families and a bike valet will also be on site, along with a variety of fun activities by Street Pub partners.

About Deschutes Brewery
Family and employee owned since 1988, Deschutes Brewery – Bend’s original brewpub – has become the cornerstone of Central Oregon’s flourishing craft brew culture. Known for its generous use of whole hops in its defining beers such as Black Butte Porter, Mirror Pond Pale Ale, and Fresh Squeezed IPA, the brewery also keeps fans on the edge of their bar stools with the release of small batch experimental beers each season. Now available in 29 states and Washington D.C., Deschutes’ flagship brewpub has been joined by a main brewing facility overlooking the Deschutes River in Bend, a pub in Portland, and coming in 2021, a new east coast brewery in Roanoke, Virginia. www.deschutesbrewery.com
