Spring time is brewing in Corvallis, and so too is the team at Sky High Brewing. Sky High opened in 2012, and since then has gained the attention and adoration of local beer lovers.
Not a hops person yourself? That’s fine. You don’t have to enjoy beer to absolutely fall in love with this place. Owner Scott McFarland has had plenty of experience running a restaurant, as the founder of Corvallis’ legendary American Dream Pizza, whose tagline is “Music. Art. Beer. Pizza.” Now those are four things I can get behind.
Sky High also offers a number of delicious cocktails to enjoy with your meal (I recommend the Moscow Mule). And, don’t worry, they offer plenty of merchandise for you to walk home with including t-shirts, coasters, and growlers (or growlitas).
They pour 18 original brews, including some seasonal favorites. Want to try ‘em all? No problem. The bartender will happily bring some samples for you and your friends to taste. The staff certainly treats every day as worthy of celebration…particularly Growler Tuesdays.
Sky High Brewery is an excellent hangout spot, with seating and heating on the roof (and a wide screen TV to accompany the outdoor bar), as well as a gorgeous view of the Willamette River, just a minute’s walk away.
If you have yet to check out the new skyscraper of Corvallis, you will be pleasantly surprised by the artistic, unique, and welcoming ambiance of the brewery/restaurant. So grab a beer, grab a meal, and head down to the riverfront for a day of leisure at Sky High Brewing in Corvallis!

This last week marks the time that the Rogue Valley Growers and Crafters Market reopens for the season. They have open markets on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Medford and Ashland. (See below for schedule) The Saturday markets will open in May.
There is fresh produce, baked goods, handcrafted items, coffees and teas. They also have local meats, eggs and so much more.One of my favorite things are the made fresh donuts. The smell carries all over the market. Yum! This is all grown and made by local people right in the Rogue Valley.

We all are very aware that spring break is right around the corner! We might take the time to clean the house, get some things done that we’ve been putting off for weeks, but take a break! It is okay to take the time to actually relax, get away from the daily stress, go to the coast! The Oregon coast has a variety of options to offer. We personally love to smell the fresh, salty air! Our favorites are Cannon, Seaside, Bandon, Rockaway, Gold Beach, Brookings, and Florence. Here is a great deal at Depot Bay! $189 at a beautiful golf course! Can’t miss this deal!
