Rogue Ales Kegfest and Oyster Bash at Churchkey
12pm
ChurchKey punctuates this year’s SAVOR festivities by welcoming Rogue Ales  for a special event that they’d wager to say will never be replicated. They’re not only clearing out ChurchKey and handing over 30 draft lines to them, but the Rogue team is also debuting two beers, hauling in five casks and a medley of their delicious spirits for the bash. On the epicurean end, Rogue will supply a bunch of their delicious cheeses – many made with their own brew – and have helped them secure bushels of tasty Oregon coast oysters for the party.
