Another Great Turnout for Pumpkins and Pints

This year’s Pumpkins and Pints was a smashing success down on One-Mile Farm! Hundreds of pumpkin-carving, music-loving friends and family came out to make this one of the best years ever. And thanks to the Turner Moore Band for providing the tunes to help make this, our 5th annual event, so much fun.

We are also happy to get a chance to share the Standing Stone Brewing Co. Farm Project with the community. This is where we source all our eggs, beef and poultry for the brewpub, keeping the food loop as close to home as we can. We also compost the all restaurant’s food waste there, keeping it out of landfills.

Thanks again to all for coming out! Here’s a look at some of the fun!

A Taste of Ashland & Oregon Garden Brewfest

a taste of ashland 1Every April we are pleased to take part in A Taste of Ashland, the Ashland Gallery Association’s signature fundraising event of the year. Restaurants and wineries pair up at 17 art galleries in town for an all-weekend walking and tasting tour. This year’s event spans Saturday and Sunday, April 27th and 28th, from noon-4pm each day.

Last year we were thrilled to participate at Hanson Howard Gallery, just two doors down from the brewpub on Oak St. Our artistic neighbors moved into the renovated space in August 2011, after the Standing Stone crew revamped and restored the historic building. Now, we’re fortunate to have Hanson Howard, a longtime Ashland, OR gallery, on our block year-round and are eager to join with them for A Taste of Ashland again this year.oak street ashland

We are also happy to announce RoxyAnn Winery will join us in representing fine Southern Oregon flavor as our wine pairing partners. We have RoxyAnn Pinot Gris on our brewpub wine list full-time, and love their attention to quality. Look forward to their Viognier and Sky Hill Red, two excellent Rhone style wines.  Our bite-sized pairing is still to-be-announced, so be sure to come taste for yourself and mark Hanson Howard on your list of stops if you’re fortunate enough to make it to this great yearly affair. Tickets can be purchased online, and this event is often sold out!

If you’re planning to be further north next weekend, we strongly urge you toBrewfest logo final make the Oregon Garden Brewfest a priority. Held in Silverton, Oregon April 26th-28th at the beautiful Oregon Garden, this festival hosts 62 breweries pouring 125 beers (yours truly included, bringing I Heart Oregon Ale). They’ll also feature live music, yummy food, tasting classes and a homebrew competition. Advance tickets available at the Oregon Garden Brewfest website.

If you jump into A Taste of Ashland next weekend, be sure to stop by Standing Stone for a bite to eat and place to rest between galleries. All the walking, tasting and socializing are bound to boost your appetite for a mid-day meal. And if you are lucky enough to attend the Oregon Garden Brewfest, stop by our table and enjoy the I Heart Oregon Ale. We wish you a weekend full of flavor wherever you end up!
