Final Main Festival Beer List

10 Barrel Brewing – Bend, OR
Cherry Sour Brown
Beer Style: Sour Brown Ale aged on tart cherries
IBUS: 16 BUs
Description: We brewed this malty brown ale, soured it and aged it on tart cherries for the perfect mix of sour, malty, refreshing and just plain strange. Unlike anything we’ve ever done before…

Alameda Brewing – Portland, OR
Mayme B
Belgian Dark Golden
6.6% ABV
45 IBU’s
Description: The Mayme B is a Belgian Dark Golden bier brewed with Mamey fruit(Pouteria sapota). This tropical fruit native to the Caribbean and Central America has a flavor which could be described as a mix of sweet potato and pumpkin topped off with maraschino cherry and a almond twist. The mamey was added post boil in the kettle and also post fermentation lending this beer a lovely almond/vanilla character. Subtle hops meld with a simple malt bill of Belgian Pilsner malt, Special B, and the clean Belgian yeast to create an interesting and nuanced brew. Enjoy.

Barley Browns – Baker City, OR
India Purple Ale
Style: IPA
ABV: 7.2%
IBU: 55
Description: American Style IPA brewed with experimental hops and Concorde Grape Juice.

Breakside Brewery – Milwaukie, OR
Passionfruit Sour Ale
Style: American Sour Ale
ABV: 4.5
IBU: 4
Description: Award-winning sour beer conditioned with passionfruit!

Burnside Brewing – Portland, OR
Nero’s Fiddle
Style: Graff
ABV: 7.0%
IBU: ?
Description: Burnside Brewing and EZ Orchards Cidre came together to create this Belgian-style graff. A blend of late harvest Roman Beauty, Pink Lady, and Granny Smith apples was whirlpooled into the kettle at flame-off. The wort/juice blend was then fermented with a Belgian yeast to create aromas of apple, pear, vanilla, and rose. The proprietary blend of apples drive the flavor profile of this tart and dry summertime hybrid. Play the fiddle.

The Commons Brewery – Portland, OR
Citrus Royale
Style: American Sour
ABV: 5.8% ABV
IBU: 11
Description: A sour spelt based beer with Navel Orange, Murcott Mandarin, Meyer Lemon peel and orange and lime juice.

Deschutes Brewery – Portland, OR
Peach Slap
Style: Sour Ale with Peaches
ABV: 3.2%
IBU: 22
Description: Peach Slap is a crisp, tart Belgian ale with a generous helping of peach puree. The base beer is light but well-rounded thanks to a portion of unmalted wheat, and gains complexity from the addition of juniper berries and pink peppercorn.

Ecliptic Brewing – Portland, OR
Lacerta Frambuesa
Style: Belgian Framboise
ABV: 6.5
IBU: 20
Description: Lacerta is the lizard constellation. We’re sure the Aztecs had to deal with them in their caves. This frambuesa is made in the Aztec style. The base beer is a light ale and it was infused with Cocoa Nibs in the mash. Hopped gently to let the malt flavors shine through. Once fermentation was going strong pounds of Raspberries were added to the fermenter. Lacerta has a nice belgian yeast spiciness that blends well with the fruit. The Cocoa nibs add a layer of flavor to the malt profile

Elysian Brewing – Seattle, WA
D’Mango Unchained
Style: Pale Ale
ABV: 6%
IBU: 32
Description: The D is silent. We think its light bitterness and mango fruitiness give it just the right splatter to hasten spring amid all this rain. A simple, almost antebellum malt bill of pale, Munich and honey malts, bittered with Centennial and finished with Citra and Mosaic. Four pounds per barrel of puréed mango added to the fermenter make it just the thing to order up for two weary travelers.

Falling Sky Brewing – Eugene, OR
Marionberry Smoked Ale
Style: Fruit and Smoke Beer
ABV: 5.4
IBU: 17
Description: Looking for a summer pink drink? Need a beer for the afternoon BBQ? Don’t catch your hair on fire with this unique offering combining two of our favorites summer brews. Painstakingly home-smoked malt by our brewers using Peach wood and Oregon Grown Marionberries provide subtle sweet smoke character and a refreshing tartness.
Malts: Weyermann Pale, MFB Munich, Weyermann CaraFoam and Peach wood Smoked Malt. Hops: Mosaic. Extras: Over 100lbs of sustainably harvested Oregon Grown Marionberries (Stahlbush Island Farms)

Flat Tail Brewing – Corvallis, OR
Brettberry Wit

Description: A golden ale fermented in stainless steel with pears that were handpicked in Salem, OR by the brewers and bartenders of Lompoc in August 2013. This beer sat on those pears for 5 months before being transferred to another tank for conditioning where it was inoculated with a touch of gueuze. Pear aroma with a slight barnyard like character.

Oakshire Brewing – Eugene, OR
Oude Bes: Strawberry Balsalmic
Style: Flanders Red
OG: 12.7
ABV 6.2
IBU: 12
Description: Our brewers dug through the barrel room and uncovered several of our oldest Fladers Red-style beers aging in pinot noir wine barrels. A few had strawberry and plums added and were dosed with Brett and lacto. We then blended 5 of our favorite barrels and aged them for a month on Strawberry puree and added a balsalmic vinegar reduction for a slightly tart and acidic Flemish-style red ale with hints of strawberries, ripe fruit, and a mild lambic-like barnyard funk. Savor this unique summer fruit salad we’ve created!

Pelican Brewing – Pacific City, OR
Style: Apricot Saison
ABV: 6.14%
IBU: 20
Description: Saison du Pelican aged with organic apricots.

Reverend Nat’s Hard Cider – Portland, OR

Stone Brewing Co. – Escondido, CA
“The Tiger Cub” Saison aged in White Wine Barrels w/Sour Cherries
ABV: 7.8%
Description: After we made our initial blend of Tiger Cub, we held on to 8 of the White Wine Barrels from the original blend that had developed additional secondary fermentation flavors “funk”, and allowed them to age for a total of 14 months. One of the barrels developed naturally occurring sourness, and all developed funk from secondary fermentation in the barrel. Once blended together, the blend was tart, with some peach and apple flavors, and a little acetic acid. To further intensify the brew, we added sour cherries to the tank. The end result is puckery goodness, with funky, horsey Brettanomyces, citric acid and fruit sweetness from the cherries, some acetic roughness, and lactic peach flavors. An intense and complex sour that will age well.

Stormbreaker Brewing – Portland, OR
Name: TBD
Style:Belgian Pale Brewed and Minneola Tangelo and aged on 100lbs of Cherimoya
ABV: 5.78
IBU: 21.7

Style: Aquavit barrel aged rye saison
ABV: 8%
IBU: 25
Description: NecTørr is Upright’s rye based dark saison matured six months in Aquavit casks from House Spirits, where the beer sat on dried persimmons, mellowing the spiciness while accentuating the honey notes of the Scandinavian spirit. A bit of pomegranate is included to balance the natural fruit and oak tannins.

Widmer Brothers/5 Stones Artisan Brewery – Portland, OR
Up From San Antone
Style: Grapefruit White IPA
ABV: 6.6%
IBU: 55
Description (including fruit): Up from San Antone is a White IPA brewed with coriander and the zest and juice of 100+ pounds of fresh grapefruit. This limited release collaboration was brewed with 5 Stones, a small brewery in Cibolo Texas (near San Antonio) that specializes in brewing with fresh produce and non-traditional ingredients. Named after a line in the song “Amarillo by Morning,” the name is a nod to the location of our collaboration partner and the liberal use of Amarillo hops. Up from San Antone has a wonderfully hoppy and grapefruity aroma, and the flavor is crisp and refreshing. Citrusy and bright, this is an amazingly drinkable IPA with loads of character. Perfect for summer, whether you’re in Texas, Portland or anywhere in between!

  75. John May 29, 2014 at 9:30 pm #

    Went to this one last year on a Sunday which was crazy busy because the Rose festival was the same weekend. Such a crowded space, don’t know why this isn’t held at a park like the Organic Beer festival. But I guess I will go, again because I’m such a suckered for beer festivals and tasters.

  76. Mike May 29, 2014 at 9:50 pm #

    My boyfriend and I just moved here last weekend! We are both avid beer and cider drinkers, but we have never tasted fruit beers. We would love to be able to win tickets because we just spent a lot of money moving here and finding a place. The Fruit Beer Festival seems like a great way to experience our first Portland festival and celebrate our new lives here.

  111. Dave Iula June 2, 2014 at 8:56 am #

    Sweet Lord! Let’s make this happen!


  112. Nick H June 2, 2014 at 11:36 am #

  113. Kiana Slabaugh June 2, 2014 at 12:06 pm #

    I would love to win because I love beer! And my best friend does not and I think this would be a great place to get her to understand why beer (and cider) are so wonderful!

  114. Frank N June 2, 2014 at 12:57 pm #

  123. Tara June 3, 2014 at 9:54 am #

    I want to win these tickets so much! I love fruit beer, cider, and mead, but I have no money in my budget for this. I wanted to volunteer, but I’m not OLCC certified, so winning tickets is my only chance.

    I need to be here.

  141. Teagan Moran June 4, 2014 at 5:00 pm #

    My brother is a huge Burnside Brewery and Beer fan and we are due for a brother-sister hang session to beat all hang sessions. This would be an amazing way to spend quality time enjoying quality refreshments! WHOOHOO

  147. Caitlyn June 5, 2014 at 1:31 pm #

    I never liked beer or cider until I moved to Portland a couple years ago from SoCal. Fruit beers and cider were the first types of beer that I liked and they remain my favorite! I would love to attend this festival and see which ones I’ve been missing out on :)

  148. Joshua Jabbour June 5, 2014 at 2:46 pm #

    Oh man do I love fruit beer! This looks awesome, and the perfect place to try a bunch out. Thanks for picking me, you know you want to!

  157. Brendan Smith June 5, 2014 at 3:06 pm #

    I LOVE the Portland Fruit Beer Festival! It’s definitely the best beer festival of the year. Hopefully it’ll still stay on the smaller side for the next few years because eventually the secret’s going to get out… and then I’ll have to wait in line for my delicious infused malt beverages!

  158. Andrew June 5, 2014 at 3:07 pm #

    I love the idea of combining ciders, sours, wits, etc… into one festival.
    Sign me up!

  159. Kelsey June 5, 2014 at 3:08 pm #

  164. Mike Z June 5, 2014 at 3:33 pm #

    Fruit beers are here!

    That this festival
    Is certainly the best of all!

    free of charge
    I suspend,
    payment at the gate.
