Thank you to all those that attended and supported the event these last 7 years. We are excited to bring you another year of Beer, and Fun in beautiful Harrison Hot Springs. 

Think about making it a weekend getaway. There are hotel packages available, hot springs to enjoy, restaurants to dine in. Plus eagles are starting to dine on the spawning salmon. Fall is the perfect time of year to take a boat tour down the Harrison River to see this spectacular site of thousands of eagles.
