This Thursday kicks off the "Bend Brewfest" at the Les Schwab Amphitheater.

This annual celebration will feature 1-hundred-and-25 beers from 51 local brewers as well as wines from toasted head winery.

Marney Smith, an event organizer for the Brewfest, says the local brewing industry is vital to Central Oregon, "the craft beer industry in Central Oregon has had a huge economic impact on us and they provide a massive amount of jobs and we also have a culture that adores really great beer."

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Central Oregon and Neighbor Impact.

Entrance to the event is free, but to try the beer, you need to buy a souvenir mug for $10, which includes enough tokens to buy one pint or four beer samples.

The event will start on Thursday at 3:00 and will wrap up on Saturday at 11:00 in the evening.
