From Deschutes Brewery: We’re looking forward to sharing beers with local craft beer fans in Downtown Roanoke, beginning late August 2017.

Location: The Tasting Room will be located at 315 Market St. SE close to local businesses, restaurants, and hotels.

Beer: Plans include ~15 taps of different Deschutes beers, and fans will be able to grab a pint, sampler tray, growlers, crowlers, and packaged beer-to-go. We will also have a very small brewing system that we plan on using it for educational and purposes to start.

Merchandise: We will have a retail space for brewery merchandise such as hats, glassware, shirts, and more…

More details to come, but the space will likely have ready-to-eat foods crafted by local restaurants, plenty of indoor seating, and outdoor space if permitted.

We’ll be hiring in early summer. Once jobs are available, applications will be taken HERE.
