Deschutes Brewery’s ‘Pop-Up Pub’ Hits Philly on May 30


Bend, Oregon – Deschutes Brewery is packing up the world’s largest pop-up pub and heading over to Philadelphia for one day only on Saturday, May 30. The ultimate craft beer block party, this 402-foot custom bar will be slinging beers from 40 taps at Headhouse Plaza (South and S 2nd Streets). At each of its national stops, Deschutes Brewery will be donating 100 percent of proceeds from Street Pub to charity. In Philadelphia, Deschutes Brewery has teamed up with the Vetri Foundation which helps kids experience the connection between healthy eating and healthy living.

Not only will there be a huge selection of Deschutes Brewery beers flowing from the Street Pub’s outrageous number of taps, but there will be great food to pair with it. Alla Spina, Lo Spiedo, Mom Mom’s Polish Food Cart, and The Twisted Tail will be serving up food to complement the beers (think everything from the easy-drinking Mirror Pond Pale Ale all the way to the big and bold flavors of The Abyss). Deschutes Brewery’s corporate executive chef, Jeff Usinowicz, will be cooking up some favorite pub fare right on site as well.

This family-friendly event will also features bar games for prizes, special samplings and live music by DJ Williams Projekt with special guest Boy Wonder. Deschutes Brewery Street Pub’s grand opening is also its final night, so make sure to be there for this one day only event!

About The Vetri Foundation for Children

The Vetri Foundation for Children was founded in 2008 by Chef Marc Vetri and restaurateur Jeff Benjamin to help kids experience the connection between healthy eating and healthy living. The Foundation’s signature Eatiquette program brings highly trained chefs to schools to help them prepare fresh, scratch-cooked lunches that are served family style. Students learn the benefits of healthy eating and practice teamwork, communication, etiquette and portion control. Eatiquette is active in 11 Philadelphia area schools and two summer camps, serving more than 4,500 students. After-school and classroom-based cooking classes reinforce the lunchroom experience and give students the skills to take the recipes they love from the cafeteria home and share them with their families.
