Refreshed Beer Garden Brings New Food & Brew Offerings to Annual Independence Day Celebration at Sunriver Resort, A Destination Hotel

Sunriver, Ore. – July 2, 2015 – Sunriver Resort,A Destination Hotel, invites guests to celebrate Independence Day weekend at Central Oregon’s premier family vacation destination. As part of the kick off to summer, the Sunriver Beer Garden is reopening for Fourth of July weekend to host the first show in its season-long summer concert series, with an all-new food truck and featuring nine beers on tap from local 10 Barrel Brewing. These new food and beverage offerings will add to Sunriver Resort’s rich culinary selection, including four new dining concepts that opened over Memorial Day weekend earlier this year.


A new food truck, P.E.A.K. (Ponderosa Eatery and Kitchen), will park inside the Beer Garden and serve up regionally-sourced and inspired summertime classics, like pulled pork sandwiches, fish tacos, chicken wings, salads and burgers. For concert-goers craving additional sit-down cuisine or local wine, beer and spirits, Sunriver Resort will continue to offer of a wide variety in the four restaurants and lounges located within the Main Lodge, adjacent to the Beer Garden. The 200-seat Sunriver Beer Garden will be open through the end of the season, Monday through Wednesday from 3 to 9 p.m., and Friday through Sunday from 1 to 9 p.m.    


“Sunriver Resort is a place of tradition, and that’s particularly clear over these holiday weekends when our annual events bring families back year after year,” said Tom O’Shea, managing director of Sunriver Resort. “This has been a landmark year for blending a rich array of new amenities and features into our longstanding traditions. Over the Fourth, we look forward to unveiling the continued expansion of our dining options, with the addition of P.E.A.K. and 10 Barrel Brewing featured in our beer garden.”


In addition to the concerts, the family fun continues with Sunriver Resort’s annual Fourth of July bike parade, where guests wheel toward Sunriver Village in the morning, followed by an afternoon of fun, games and prizes at the Sunriver Mall Courtyard. Decorating one’s ride is always encouraged, so the Bike Barn is providing free and festive supplies, along with ice cream, for parade riders to outfit their bikes in red, white and blue on July 3. Guests and local residents can also get active with the Fourth of July Fun Run for the Birds, with proceeds benefitting the Sunriver Nature Center and Observatory. The three races suit all ages and speeds, and offer stunning views of Mt. Bachelor, The Meadow and the Deschutes National Forest throughout the course. Afterward, guests can head over to the Merchant Trader lawn for a post-race celebration, including food and drinks, and a chance to meet some of the Nature Center's most interesting aviary residents!
