The world’s only organic brewers festival, the Organic Beer Fest will celebrate its 13th year June 22 through 25, 2017, at Overlook Park in North Portland. Event hours are 4pm to 9pm Thursday, Noon to 9pm Friday & Saturday and Noon to 5pm Sunday.
The Organic Beer Fest encourages brewers and beer lovers to “Drink Organic, Save the Planet.” Designed to raise awareness about organic beer and sustainable living, the festival serves up 55 organic beers, ciders & mead from more than 40 different breweries. Some of the breweries are certified organic, but most brew a one-off organic batch just for the event. Styles run the gamut from Ambers to Belgians to Wild Ales, with a bit of everything in-between. The event also offers live local music, organic food and sustainability-oriented vendors and non-profits in a beautiful park setting.
The Organic Beer Fest is a family friendly event, and minors are welcome with parents. A kids area offers art activities, face painting and a root beer garden with complimentary Crater Lake Soda for minors (and designated drivers).
The festival encourages responsible drinking and urges patrons to take advantage of the MAX Light Rail; the Yellow Line Overlook Park Station is adjacent to the festival. Attendees can also take advantage of the Hopworks Bike Corral, where volunteers watch over bikes for free. For more info, visit www.organicbeerfest.org.
