Now for the sixth time, the South Perry pub is preparing to host its annual Winter Beer Fest. The event kicks off Thursday and features dozens of craft beers from outside the region. On Friday night, Oregon breweries are highlighted, followed by a Washington brewery night on Saturday. Expect to see a total of 28 winter beers on tap from 24 different breweries paired with live music throughout the weekend.
