  • What Deschutes Brewery Street Pub is all about

    The “world’s largest street pub” returns to Sacramento next month. Deschutes Brewery is bringing its 400-foot-long party to the Handle District on Oct. 14, 2017, with proceeds again benefiting Elk Grove’s Runnin’ for Rhett nonprofit organization. It’s the third time the pub has visited Sacramento and organizers hope to add to the $180,000 raised over the last two years.
