Description
The Oregon Brewers Festival is one of the nation's longest running and best loved craft beer festivals. Situated on the west bank of the Willamette River, with towering Mt. Hood as a backdrop, it is the ideal venue for anyone who loves craft beer. With a laid back attitude and scores of award-winning beers, the festival reflects the essence of the city of Portland, aka Brewvana.

The Oregon Brewers Festival exists to provide an opportunity to sample and learn about a variety of craft beer styles from across the country. More than 80 craft breweries from all parts of the nation offer more than 20 styles of handcrafted brews to 80,000 beer lovers during the five-day event.

The festival's focus is craft beer, but there's more than sampling involved. The event features live music, beer-related vendors, beer memorabilia displays, beer writers and publishers, homebrewing demonstrations, and an assortment of foods from a variety of regions. The Crater Lake Root Beer Garden offers complimentary handcrafted root beer for minors and designated drivers. Minors are always welcome at the festival when accompanied by a parent.

The Oregon Brewers Festival strongly encourages responsible drinking, and urges patrons to take advantage of the MAX Light Rail line, located just one block west of the festival on SW Oak Street. Go by bus, train or taxi, just don't drink and drive. The festival also offers free, on-site bicycle parking

    Hi everyone! Any suggestions for a place to meet up at that is close to the event? If not, I will be at the entrance closest to Oak Street @ about 3:15 so we can all try to go in together. I will have a flower pinwheel so we should be easy to spot in a crowd. Also, I'll post my number the day of the event.

      If you host, 3:30 works great. If I host, I can't do until 4:30. Whichever works for me!
