Deschutes Brewery Hosts Enormous Brunch for Second Harvest Heartland in Minneapolis

Black Butte Porter Bloody Mary

Oregon brewery's beloved keg on wheels, Woody, rolls into town to serve beer for brunch and help raise funds to fight hunger in Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS , MN, USA, August 8, 2017 / -- Deschutes Brewery is bringing its giant keg on wheels, Woody, to Minneapolis on Saturday, August 19 for a one-of-a-kind Pop-Up Brunch. The event was crafted to support Second Harvest Heartland, one of the nation’s largest and most innovative hunger relief organizations. Over the past two years, Deschutes Brewery Street Pub has raised more than $180,000 for Second Harvest Heartland, and Woody’s Pop-Up Brunch will continue the tradition.

Of the firm opinion that beer is perfect for breakfast, Woody will be greeting fans and pouring brunch cocktails like Black Butte Porter Bloody Marys, Fresh Squeezed IPA Mimosas, American Wheat Beer-linies and Maple Bacon Porter. As if that’s not enough, each of the cocktails will be paired with delectable brunch dishes from Irish Born Hospitality, operators of Minneapolis’ own McKinney Roe and O'Donovan's. To top it off, the brewery will be hosting fun brunch challenges – like the famed Big Wheel Obstacle Course – for prizes, custom Deschutes Brewery and Woody swag, and live local music.
