‘Peche Fest’—Oregon’s only festival dedicated to drinking the world’s greatest fruit—the peach—returns for its 4th year on Saturday, October 8, at Saraveza and the Bad Habit Room. Stuffed with tart and fuzzy peachy goodness, the Peche Fest features 25+ rare peach beers and ciders, food made with peaches, and the return of the VIP session.

Returning this year is the VIP session from 1pm to 3pm, featuring first dibs at some of the rarest beers, extra drink tickets, and entry to Saraveza two hours before the main session. General Admission entry begins at 3pm for both Saraveza and Bad Habit Room and is $10 for a commemorative glass and 2 drink tickets. Most beers will be one drink ticket per pour with additional drink tickets available for $2 each. Advanced tickets available now!
The officially official draft list is out!
- Almanac Beer: Peach de Brettaville
Peach de Brettaville is a harmonious marriage of fruit and beer, bringing together our love for brett saisons and farm fresh fruit. We brewed our Saison Dolores and fermented it with twelve different brettanomyces strains, and aged it in wine barrels and our foeders with plenty of juicy peaches and nectarines.
After months of maturing and blending, this saison has developed a balance between earthy funk and stone fruit sweetness with a dry, white wine-like finish, perfect for pairing with creamy cheeses and braised pork. 6.5% Abv.
- Bend Brewing: Peach Offering
This unique and refreshing Sour ale was brewed with Pilsner, Wheat, and Honey Malts and a pinch of Crystal hops. Lactobacillus provides a bright tartness, while the addition of over 100 lbs of Oregon Peaches and Whole Chamomile Flowers contribute soft fruit flavors and delicates floral notes. All we are saying is give Peach a chance! 4.5% Abv.
- Block 15 peach-pit-wit
Block 15 Brewing: Peach Pit Wit
A blend of young and 3-4 year barrel-matured witbiers, conditioned with heaping amounts of juicy peaches. Featuring tannic peach flavor throughout, Peach Pit Wit highlights subtle notes of Belgian yeast spice and citrus from the young witbier, alongside with complex acidity, gentle barrel character, and a hint of funk from the Pinot Noir barrel-matured witbier. Finishes dry, with an approachable sourness and a pithy, peach pit linger. 4.85% ABV

A special one-off pin for Peche Fest! Our popular seasonal sour ale– Passionfruit Sour– conditioned on peaches and habaneros. Fruity, spicy, sour and tropical fun!

- Fort George Brewery: Spring Fever
Brewed with Belgian Lioness Yeast from Imperial Yeast in Portland. Pleasantly strong esters of white fruit and clove are evident with this particular strain. A bit of rye was added to compliment the spiciness of the yeast. A lot of honey went in as the wort was transferred to the fermenter, adding complexity and a light but lingering honey flavor. Peaches were added post fermentation, accentuating the fruity esters from the yeast. 9% ABV
- Golden Valley Brewery: Brett Haven
Brett Haven is Golden Valley’s latest beer to incorporate fresh fruit and barrel aging. This light blonde ale aged 3 months in a bourbon barrel with Brettanomyces yeast before spending another two months in an Oregon Pinot Noir barrel with 100 pounds of fresh Red Haven peaches. Notes of bourbon, oak, and Pinot meld with light brettanomyces funk and peach blossoms for a nuanced and refreshing beer. OG 1.046 IBU 12 ABV 5.4%
- Great Divide: Peach Grand Cru
Peach Grand Cru is Great Divide’s newest limited offering. Brewed with Colorado fruit picked right at the peak of ripeness, this Belgian-style ale marries two of our home state’s well-known offerings: great beer and fresh Palisade peaches. Both sophisticated and balanced, this extraordinary, aromatic ale was born to be savored beyond the orchard. 12% Abv.

- Oakshire Brewing: 9th Anniversary Ale
A long time in the making, exemplifying a passionate dedication to inspired, small batch beers. We started with a crisp Farmhouse Ale, aged it for two years over a mountain of peaches, and matured it for another month with a smaller wild beer and a second dose of peaches. The finished beer presents a brilliant, hazy orange that yields a robust aroma of citrus notes, fresh peaches and acidic, earthy stone fruits. The sweet and floral peach flavors are followed quickly by a bright, tart, funky finish. Our 9th Anniversary Ale presents a great mix of tastes and aromas – certainly worth waiting nine years to enjoy!
- pFriem Family Brewers: Peche
juicy, heirloom peaches to pFriem’s year-old Lambic, magic happens— they unite, gushing with bright acidity, nutty undertones and a tangy finish. It does take eight more months of aging, but it’s well worth the wait.
