Organizers of the State of Jefferson Brewfest have made the decision to postpone their event because of the Carr Fire.

The 26th Brewfest had been scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 4, at Dunsmuir City Park.

Dunsmuir Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Richard Dinges said the decision was made to reschedule the event out of respect for the people of Redding and the catastrophic events caused there by the Carr Fire.

He said organizers are working on establishing a new date for the Brewfest, hopefully within 30 days. That process involves rescheduling with more than 80 brewers as well as musicians and vendors.
