Bikes, Beer, and Two Parties This Year: Instinct 2018

Posted on: October 18th 2018

Bikes, Beer, and Two Parties This Year!
The Halloween Cross Crusades bike races and warehouse party shenanigans return to Bend once again.
This is the one weekend a year where our brewery campus turns into an interactive CX race course and we move mass amounts of beer pallets around in our warehouse to make room for live music, DJs, and performers who hang upside down from the ceiling rafters.
The stoke factor has been high for this event since we started back in 2010. Here are some stats that may blow your mind! Over the last 7 years:
  • 14,886 raving fans in attendance
  • 183 entertainers/acts
  • 397 kegs kicked
  • And $61,500 raised for local non-profits

So this year, we had to raise the bar even higher! On the CX course, expect a new sandpit, a tricky off-camber section on a side hill, and a tight course with lots of cornering, a steep railroad tie run-up, and the lively and raucous atmosphere that can only happen on a course held at the largest brewery in Oregon!

Come for the races, stay for the PARTIES!

Yes, we said p-a-r-t-i-e-s! We’ve got 2 nights of heart pumpin’ music and eye-poppin’ entertainment to wow you, Friday, November 2nd and Saturday, November 3rd. The theme this year: INSTINCT… think animals in the wild, blending with your surroundings, and enjoying beer in its natural habitat. As always, “you do you” on the costume front!

Friday Night

A giant fusion of hip-hop inspiration from the past 30 years! Be sure to check out Digable Planets jazz-hip-hop fusion, Landon Wordswell solo artist with intricate rhyme, God-Des inspiring, yet fierce singer/rapper, and Central Oregon DJ, bPollen.
