Your Guide to PDX Beer Week

Posted on:

Portland, commonly referred to as Beervana, is home to more breweries than any other city on earth (over 75!), plenty of beer fests, brew-friendly movie theaters and more. So it’s no wonder craft beer lovers flock to the city to get their hop on. Take your beer obsession to the next level this June during Portland Beer Week with 11 days of thirst-quenching fun, just a short distance from our Portland hotel.

Kickoff Party – June 7
Join your fellow brew mongers at the Oregon Zoo to sample an epic lineup of breweries, cideries and local food carts while enjoying live entertainment, photo ops, crafts and animal sightings. Bring the whole family for a night of fun – those who plan on drinking just need a valid ID.

Portland Fruit Beer Festival – June 8-10
The 8th-annual Portland Fruit Beer Festival is the first and largest festival dedicated to fruit beers and ciders. With more than 50 fruity beers and ciders, plus non-alcoholic drinks and tasty food vendors, there’s no better time or place for summer sipping.

Portland Beer and Cheese Festival – June 16
