"Beers Made By Walking" is a program that invites brewers to make beer inspired by nature hikes and urban walks. Each walk is different, each beer is a portrait of that landscape. The program happens in multiple cities each year.

A few months ago, Deschutes Brewery set out on their "Beers Made By Walking" hike through the Deschutes Land Trust's Whychus Canyon Preserve. They invited about twenty fans along and the hike was led by the Land Trust's Jane Meissner. Jane informed the hikers on the land they were walking through, as well as Deschutes' brewer Veronica Vega, who explained her love for the park and her decisions for picking the plants that will go into the beer she makes.

From this preserve, Deschutes Brewery was approved to gather the sage and juniper berries that would be used in the making of a beer called Sage Fight IPA. According to the original brewer of this beer, it is all about the "cage fight" between the hops and the sage. Who will win out? You decide at Belmont Station where this beer will be sampled as well as other brews from the "Beers Made By Walking" program. You don't want to miss this event so come on down. Cheers!
