Elk Horn Brewery Opens

8-29 elk horn picEUGENE, Ore. — After a former Carl’s Jr. Restaurant near the University of Oregon campus sat vacant for more than a year, local entrepreneurs have developed it into a brewery.

The Elk Horn Brewery opened just two days ago, and they say they’ve been swamped.

They brew their own cider, beer, and produce their own meat.

Stephen Sheehan, the owner Stephen Elk Horn, is originally from Mississippi and says the restaurant is a twist between two worlds–the South and the Pacific Northwest. They designed it like a lodge, with some Southern cuisine.

“We have a wild mushroom over polenta cakes, ragu that’s kind of a Northwest-Southern fusion thing because we use local ingredients. We use local mushrooms,” Sheehan said.

Sheehan said they ready for a swarm of folks to head to brewery Saturday, as it’s the first Ducks football game of the season.

    Saw your newscast today Oct.24 and noticed there was a mushroom festival this weekend. I did not hear where it was at and searched your site but could not find anything on it. I’m visiting in Coos Bay, and if it isn’t too far I would love to go see it. Could you please give me the location where this mushroom festival is being held at?
