More than 15,000 beer lovers, music fans and supporters of sustainable living will come together at the North American Organic Brewers Festival (NAOBF) the last weekend of June to “Drink Organic, Save the Planet, One Beer at a Time.” The 10th annual event will take place June 26 through June 29 at Overlook Park in North Portland. Event hours are Noon to 9pm Thursday through Saturday and Noon to 5pm Sunday.

Admission into the event is free. The purchase of a $6 reusable, compostable cornstarch cup is required for tasting beer, as are tokens, which sell for $1 apiece. A full cup of beer or cider costs four tokens and a four-ounce taste costs one token; select beers cost extra tokens.

Designed to raise awareness about organic beer and sustainable living, the NAOBF typically serves up more than 50 organic beers and ciders from nearly 40 different breweries. Most of the breweries brew an organic beer specifically for the event. Styles run the gamut from goldens to porters, with a bit of everything in-between. There’s also live local music, organic food and sustainability-oriented vendors and non-profits. The NAOBF is a family friendly event, and minors are welcome with parents. The Chipotle Kids’ Zone will offer free activity books, grow pots and Chipotle kids’ meal cards, plus face painting and a root beer garden with complimentary Crater Lake Root Beer for minors and designated drivers.

The NAOBF encourages responsible drinking and urges patrons to take advantage of the Tri-Met MAX Light Rail; the Yellow Line “Overlook Park” Station stops directly across from the festival. Attendees can also take advantage of the Hopworks Bike Corral, where volunteers from Rotary Club of Portland–Westside’s Cycling 2 Serve Fellowship will watch over bikes for free (donations will benefit Rotary International’s “End Polio Now” efforts to eradicate polio worldwide). Patrons receive a $1 discount toward the tasting glass with a validated Tri-Met ticket or a ticket from the Hopworks Bike Corral (one discount per person).

The NAOBF is known as the most earth-friendly beer festival on the planet. Festival attendees sample beer from reusable and compostable cornstarch cups made from domestically grown corn by a zero-waste, solar-powered company. Electricity needs are met with biodiesel generators. Volunteers receive organic cotton t-shirts (returning volunteers can wear past T shirts and get extra tokens instead). Food vendors are required to use compostable cutlery and plates and employ sustainable practices, and onsite composting and recycling stations are provided for festival waste and are supervised by recycling czars. Last year’s event recycled and composted 92% of the total waste, marking the second year in a row that more than 90% of the event’s waste was diverted from the landfill.

Why an organic beer festival? Studies show that the world’s population currently consumes 30% more natural resources than the Earth’s ecosystems can replenish. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, commercial agriculture is accountable for 70% of the pollution in our country’s rivers and streams. Genetically modified ingredients can be found in nearly every grocery store. The NAOBF believes that education and exposure lead to awareness, and awareness can translate to passion. If everyone becomes passionate about sustainability, as a whole we can make the planet a cleaner and healthier place for all of us to inhabit.

      An awesome event!

  2. Sian June 17, 2014 at 9:47 am #

    Me please. Since moving to Portland I love beer. My grandfather and I as a five year old would sit and drink Newcastle Brown and those wee tastes were pretty special. I had truly never bought a pint until 44 years later!

  3. Stephen June 17, 2014 at 9:53 am #

    Life is too short to drink bad beer!

    Please choose me. This looks awesome!

  29. Angela June 17, 2014 at 3:56 pm #

    My hubby is the best daddy to our littles ever & he had to spend fathers day packing & moving stuff so this would more than make up for having to work so hard on his day! He deserves that!

  30. Jake Reynolds June 17, 2014 at 4:00 pm #

    Beer helps me laugh at the unfunny skits in Portlandia.

  31. Roddy June 17, 2014 at 4:01 pm #

    This is my favorite festival and I never win anything from you guys. Could this be my chance?

  32. toby June 17, 2014 at 4:03 pm #

    I ❤

  34. Jonathan K. June 17, 2014 at 4:57 pm #

    This is one of, if not the, best beer festival in Portland every summer. The weather has always been great when I went and there is always that large tree and tents to hide under if it gets too hot. The beer selections have always been top notch with something for everyone. This is by far my favorite festival and I would love to win a package to share with a friend to spend a day drinking.

  35. anónimo June 17, 2014 at 5:02 pm #

    Because I drink heavily, but only in public places.

  36. kathy June 17, 2014 at 5:06 pm #

    I would love to attend this festival!

  37. michelle June 17, 2014 at 5:08 pm #

    I love going to this festival. It is now a tradition for my dad and I to go, he really enjoys the music and the beers. I love reading about all the beers then selecting the ones that appeal to my tastes.

  38. Elaine June 17, 2014 at 5:25 pm #

    Would love to take my pops to this great event! We both had to work Father’s Day weekend and I’d love to surprise him. Thanks for your consideration!

  39. William June 17, 2014 at 5:44 pm #

  40. Matt McCorry June 17, 2014 at 6:26 pm #

    I want to attend the NAOBF because it’s freaking awesome. Great location, great beer, great food, great people. Throw in live music? Baby, you got yoself a stew!

  41. Lyn June 17, 2014 at 6:39 pm #

    I love all things organic. Attending this fest will help me to expand my organic palette.

  42. Yume June 17, 2014 at 7:16 pm #

    This is my favorite brewfest!

  45. Andrej June 17, 2014 at 7:35 pm #

    I just moved to Portland last weekend. I love beer and wine just as much as everyone else leaving a comment. I guess the only difference is that I desperately need a reason to get out of my house and meet people as I don’t know anyone in Portland. I would love to meet fellow beer connoisseur in a friendly environment such as this one. Hopefully you pick me.

  46. Jarrod June 17, 2014 at 7:36 pm #

    I would love to win! It’s my first year not able to volunteer and a free pass would be rad!

  47. TeriAnna Grot June 17, 2014 at 7:51 pm #

    For the past year or so my family has made every effort possible to eat (and drink) local and organic. I’m looking forward to spending some time with my friends while sampling organic beer, and the day would be even better if I didn’t have to spend too much money!

  48. Amanda Elliott June 17, 2014 at 8:10 pm #

    I am a local teacher officially on summer break looking for some good beer!!! This would be a wonderful way to kickstart the summer…. and the fantastic beer that will be there is a bonus!!!

  49. John June 17, 2014 at 8:28 pm #

    I want, I want. I need, I need. Gimme, gimme, gimme. No seriously, I must not be separated from a brewfest for more then a year otherwise I will suffer withdrawl and no matter amount of other brew festival’s can fill the void.

  50. Chad June 17, 2014 at 8:38 pm #

    Ok, my birthday is on Monday the 23rd, and this is my last full week of employment with my employer of 6 years, as my job is being sent offshore. Believe me, I’m going to need a drink.

    I’m going to need an entire fleet of drinks!

  51. Jen June 17, 2014 at 9:06 pm #

    Went last year, it was amazing! And I’m graduating med school that weekend, so it’s a perfect time to celebrate!

  52. Lacey N June 18, 2014 at 1:42 am #

    This is a great festival and I look forward to it every year! Doesn’t hurt that it’s drunken stumbling distance from my house…

  53. Matt W. June 18, 2014 at 7:45 am #

    I’ve never been to the North American Organic Beer Festival, though it’s always been on my “Portland beer bucket list” for several reasons.

    First, I’ve heard nothing but good things from friends who have gone–it sounds like a really fun atmosphere with some stellar beers. Second, Overlook Park is absolutely beautiful on a perfect PNW summer day! Third, since they’re all organic, the beers are totally healthy, right? Right?!

  54. Matt Robbins June 18, 2014 at 8:00 am #

    I have been to every NAOBF in history. Always on opening day, and always at noon. It is one of the best festivals in town and celebrates the start of summer in my eyes. Thank you NAOBF for all that you do!!!

  55. Brittany June 18, 2014 at 9:29 am #

    It would be SO awesome to win these.

  56. Luna June 18, 2014 at 10:49 am #

    It would be a great way to check out local beers. How fun would that be?!

  57. Robert Ray June 18, 2014 at 11:15 am #

    I’m new to this area and am looking forward to trying all of the great things that the Portland area has to offer. This will be a great starter for my Summer Season!

  58. Windy June 18, 2014 at 11:36 am #

    Organic beer makes my friends more tolerable. :)

  59. Grant June 18, 2014 at 11:49 am #

    Would love to experience more organic beers! That means you can drink way more since they’re healthy right?

  60. rebecca June 18, 2014 at 11:52 am #

  61. Monte June 18, 2014 at 11:53 am #

    This is probably our favorite brewfest because the whole family gets to attend and Overlook Park is a great spot. Very much looking forward to this year’s event and having a pint of the Eel River Açai Berry Wheat.

  62. Tina June 18, 2014 at 12:05 pm #

    We were sitting under the large elm with the cracked branch on the day prior to it being removed. So glad that the organizers decided to have it cut and that no one got hurt.

  63. Monte June 18, 2014 at 12:08 pm #

    This is probably our favorite brewfest because the whole family gets to attend and Overlook Park is a great spot. Very much looking forward to this year’s event and having a pint.

    Beer is best,

    Portland in June,

    Overlook Park,
    would be amazing.
    Organic beer,
    available for grazing!

    Please give me the tickets!

  89. Bridget June 19, 2014 at 10:24 am #

    I am in Portland for the next six weeks for an (unpaid) internship, and I’m hoping to move out here when I am finished with school next year. While I’m here, I’m trying to experience as much as possible, so I can get a better feel for the city. I know Portland is known for it’s wide variety of microbreweries, and I’d love to be able to experience as many as possible while I’m here. Being able to attend the festival would be a great way to get out into the city, drink some really good beer (one of my favorite things), and have a good time. The tickets would not go to waste, and they would be much appreciated!

  90. Tonya June 19, 2014 at 10:25 am #

    This is the first year we haven’t already had plans for the weekend of this festival. Would love to win tickets so we can attend this year.

    I love beer, love making it, and love learning about it. This would be a cool opportunity to get not only some amazing knowledge, bit taste some delicious beers and ciders that may be new to me.

  92. Monica L. June 19, 2014 at 11:34 am #

    I’m currently living in Portland for the summer and would love to win these tickets because I want to explore more of Portland and I enjoy drinking a nice, cool brew in the summertime. It’s only a plus if the beer is organic–that I have never tried before but really want to!

  93. Alicia June 19, 2014 at 12:07 pm #

    I will drink to healthier Beer, nowhere better than Portland! Cheers!!!

  94. tom June 19, 2014 at 12:34 pm #

    Beer! and it’s organic! YES!

    dear pdx pipeline,

  104. Chandra Spicer June 19, 2014 at 3:31 pm #

    Who wouldn’t want to go?! Love that it’s friendly to our environment. Would be the first festival of this kind that I would potentially get to attend!

  105. Ariel June 19, 2014 at 3:32 pm #

    I just moved to Portland from MD and I am already in awe with the city! I really just want to try and experience everything I can first hand! Also my 21st birthday is on the 26th and this would be an awesome gift!

  110. Chris June 19, 2014 at 3:39 pm #

    When Roots closed a few years ago I was deeply saddened. I could always use a little bit more organic beer in my life.

  111. Christina June 19, 2014 at 3:44 pm #

    Broke, thirsty and loving all things organic. Please, oh please, ticket me! :)

  113. Janelle June 19, 2014 at 3:48 pm #

    Just got back to the States and the only two things I was craving upon my return were Mexican food and yummy beer!

  114. Claire June 19, 2014 at 3:52 pm #

    Because I want to try organic-puking!

  115. Amanda June 19, 2014 at 3:52 pm #

    I’d love to take my husband to this for our wedding anniversary. We’re sadly not going to have much money to do anything so this would be a dream!

    This is my favorite beer festival because it reminds me of Porltand… small enough to navigate and have a great time, but big enough to try lots of new beers and meet fantastic people. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that this was my first beer festival after I turned 21 and I’ve gone every year since!

  117. Linda June 19, 2014 at 4:00 pm #

    After hearing from several people that this is the best summer festival that Portland offers, I’d love to check it out myself. I’ve lived here a year and missed alot of these unique events last year. You’d be helping integrate me into the Portland culture.

  118. Don June 19, 2014 at 4:04 pm #

    This is a favorite beer fest at a great location. And what a great way to support beer free of artificial food additives, processed without artificial methods, materials and conditions, such as chemical ripening, food irradiation, and genetically modified ingredients.

  119. Bradford DeLuca June 19, 2014 at 4:06 pm #

    This is the most amazing beer fest all summer, in my opinion. I would absolutely love to take my soon-to-be wife to this festival to kick off our wedding season!

  120. Heather S June 19, 2014 at 4:09 pm #

    In the words of Homer Simpson, ““Alcohol is a way of life, alcohol is my way of life, and I aim to keep it.”

  121. James June 19, 2014 at 4:19 pm #

    I would like to win because I love good beer and REALLY love free good beer.

  122. Allison H. June 19, 2014 at 4:19 pm #

    School’s out for summer, and this teacher is ready to get her ORGANIC beer on!!!

  123. Allison Bailey June 19, 2014 at 4:21 pm #

    This sounds like the perfect day date for my one rare weekend off, when we happen to be kid free!! Parent weekend here we come!!

  124. Jennifer June 19, 2014 at 4:30 pm #

    I live in the Overlook neighborhood and this will be my 6th year attending the NAOB Festival. I have friends coming into town during this time and would love to treat them to the city’s best beer fest.

  125. sean June 19, 2014 at 4:36 pm #

    Because I’m the lucky 124th response….wow, this is a popular one, and rightfully so. Hands down, this is my favorite beer fest in the plethora offered throughout our fair city. It’s the only one I purposely planned to stay home for throughout my busy summer. A free ride would be oh so sweet.

  126. Giggles June 19, 2014 at 4:40 pm #

    I’d love to take my husband for our anniversary!

  127. Wallis June 19, 2014 at 4:40 pm #

    Beer is delicious and I’m planning on attending this event! Looking forward to it.

  128. RC June 19, 2014 at 4:58 pm #

    Nice event.

  129. Michelle G June 19, 2014 at 5:09 pm #

    I love being outside, in Portland, drinking delicious beers with great people. This is the perfect event!

  130. Andrea June 19, 2014 at 5:14 pm #

    I wanna win! This is hands down my favorite beer fest in Portland!

  131. bc June 19, 2014 at 5:35 pm #

    The best beers in the world, without poison? I’m so there.

  132. April June 19, 2014 at 5:42 pm #

    Taking my friend to this for her bridal/bachelorette celebration so this would be an awesome gift!

  133. Brittany June 19, 2014 at 5:55 pm #

    I’m so thirsty!

  134. Laurel June 19, 2014 at 5:59 pm #

    Love the organic fest, it’s a great one!

  135. Anthony June 19, 2014 at 6:03 pm #

    Love this festival and love organic beer!

  136. Lauri June 19, 2014 at 6:26 pm #

    Now that it’s summer break and I am with my darling kids all day long, I’d love to go somewhere without them for some adult fun :)

  137. McKinzie June 19, 2014 at 6:51 pm #

    I know a guy who fell down the Overlook hill at this festival and another guy who met his future wife at this festival. I want a good story to match theirs!

  138. panda June 19, 2014 at 6:52 pm #

    beer and tokens equals the perfect summer afternoon, Portland style

  139. Debbie June 19, 2014 at 6:58 pm #

    This is my favorite summer fest. Over the top organic beer in Overlook! Pick me please!

  140. Rachel Stokes June 19, 2014 at 6:59 pm #

    I would be honored to be chosen for this event.
    Thank you. :-)

  141. annie June 19, 2014 at 7:01 pm #

    The combination of organic love and crafted drafts spells fun festival for me!

  142. Penny June 19, 2014 at 7:15 pm #

    This is a great festival! I would love to go!

  143. Chris June 19, 2014 at 7:19 pm #

    I’ve never been to this, but would love to!

  144. Matty D June 19, 2014 at 7:37 pm #

    “We the People” can make the planet a cleaner and healthier place for all of us to inhabit !cheers

  145. Stacy June 19, 2014 at 7:41 pm #

    I want organic beer!

  146. Danielle June 19, 2014 at 8:19 pm #

    I know very little about beer and want to learn more about it to appreciate its history.

  147. Sara Goldman June 19, 2014 at 8:28 pm #

    Oh! I really really like beer. Please pick me!

  148. Darren June 19, 2014 at 8:34 pm #

    I love good, wholesome, organic beer and I love Portland…being a resident, of course! What a gift to be able to go.

  149. Josh June 19, 2014 at 8:38 pm #

    My brother and sister in law will be in town, visiting portland for the first time. I’d love to take them to their first portland beer fest, especially one that takes place in the park!

  150. Michael mann June 19, 2014 at 8:47 pm #

    This just may be the best beer event of the summer. I would love the opportunity to show my friend from Montana the best organic beers around!

  151. Trevor June 19, 2014 at 8:56 pm #

    My dad and I want to go, and this will be his first brewfest! Pick us!

  152. Rachel June 19, 2014 at 8:58 pm #

    I would love to win this package! Me and my boyfriend are taking a mini road trip from our home in Vancouver, BC to visit Portland next weekend for our anniversary. What better way to celebrate our relationship than by cheers’ing with delicious organic beer! Thanks pdx pipeline!

  153. Julie H June 19, 2014 at 9:01 pm #

    I would like to win because I never really had decent beer till I move up here. Now it’s a challenge to learn about all the different ales everyone brews. I would like to also learn how to brew so I can be a brew wife. This would be a great way to learn more of what is out there and what people can create.

  154. Dave G. June 19, 2014 at 9:15 pm #

    My wife and I usually pour beer at these fests, and I’d love to go just as a guest! Thanks!

  155. William Stewart June 19, 2014 at 9:56 pm #

    Beer me!

  156. Alicia Tadema June 19, 2014 at 10:19 pm #

    The beer festivals in Portland are so much fun!

  157. Tim June 19, 2014 at 10:26 pm #

    Short version of a long story. . . . It has been a devastating week for me and I would love next
    week to go better. Would really like to go to this beerfest (never been) and I definitely could
    use the alcohol anesthetic (don’t worry, I have a designated driver all lined up if I win).

    Please be kind by giving me the Mr T special. . . .”pity the fool” and offer me tickets! : )

  158. Lori Gustin June 19, 2014 at 10:52 pm #

    Yes, please!

  159. Stephanie lewis June 19, 2014 at 10:53 pm #

    I love beer and this sounds super sweet!!!!

  160. Kellie Russ June 19, 2014 at 11:10 pm #

    I see my daughter is trying to win tickets. I would like the older crowd to get a crack at this instead! We used to attend the Organic Beerfest when it was at the Western Forestry Center. So happy you have moved to a park setting, and would like to give it a try again.

  161. roy nifoussi June 19, 2014 at 11:47 pm #

    This is a great event with some wonderfully different beers.

  162. Paul Covello June 20, 2014 at 3:17 am #

    Organic Beer Festival… I’m game!

  163. Theresa H June 20, 2014 at 4:15 am #

    I’ve never been, or heard of this festival, but would love to check it out! I love how Eco friendly it is…even for Portland :)

  164. Carly June 20, 2014 at 7:47 am #

    This festival happens the weekend before I get married so I would like to “Drink Organic, Save the Planet, One Beer at a Time” oh and save my sanity from last minute wedding preparations! :)

  165. Dennis June 20, 2014 at 8:06 am #

    my thirst for beer is now my craft, help me practice my passion

  166. Anna June 20, 2014 at 8:15 am #

    I would LOVE to win this for my husband. I’m pregnant so he would be getting to bring a friend and getting in some much needed guy time. THANKS!

  167. Danny Cooper June 20, 2014 at 8:24 am #

    To reduce waste, I will go au natural.

  168. Haley June 20, 2014 at 8:33 am #

    I just turned 21.

  169. Brenda June 20, 2014 at 8:45 am #

    Organic beer in the park in the sun — what could be better

  170. Stephanie June 20, 2014 at 8:45 am #

    This would be such a wonderful thing to win and such a nice way for my partner and I to get a chance to unwind together. I’ve been in school full time and working full time and he’s been working 70 hours a week to help me pay for my education so that I don’t have to graduate with debt. We’re being as responsible about this as we can, but it leaves us with next to no money (or real free time) to do anything fun. Thursday is the one day a week we actually get to spend together. Spending it at the brew fest would be a rare treat.

  171. Heather June 20, 2014 at 9:33 am #

    Hi, ive never been & would love to attend. Please pick me !

  172. AJ June 20, 2014 at 9:56 am #

    I’m studying for the bar exam right now and this is the last bit of fun in my future. Beyond that, thanks for letting me live a summer of vicarious fun, pdxpipeline!

  173. Kelsey June 20, 2014 at 10:05 am #

    NAOBF was the highlight of my summer–if not my year–in 2013. This package would make it even better! I promise I’ll use the power (and tokens) for good. Can’t wait to try the Ambacht Ginger Farmhouse and all the fruit beers!

  174. Lindsey June 20, 2014 at 10:10 am #

    We’ve lived here 4 years and have gone to many many festivals but this one is our FAVORITE!!!! We love the beer (obviously), the location, and the openness of it. He’s in residency at OHSU so his schedule dosen’t always accommodate being able to attend beer festivals but this one he has off and we’d love to come!!

  175. David price June 20, 2014 at 10:12 am #


  176. Lex June 20, 2014 at 10:30 am #

    I’ve been going to the NAOBF for 7 years now and have found it to be the best brewfest in Portland.
    Beautiful scenery. Great beers. No long lines. What more could you ask for? On top of that it’s organic and nearly everything is recycled.
    Can hardly wait for the 26th to get here.

  177. sarah June 20, 2014 at 10:35 am #

    BEER ME PLEASE! this would be amazing to the MAX!!!!!

  178. Jessica June 20, 2014 at 10:39 am #

    I want to take my parents to the festival because my mom is chronically ill and my dad works way too much and way too hard! This festival would be the perfect reminder for why my parents moved to the NW 22 years ago and they deserve some time off. Beer, enjoying the environment, and spending quality time together are just a few of the idelogoies my parents have ingrained in my siblings and myself and taking them to this festival would be be the ultimate culmination of these ideals!

  179. Chandra June 20, 2014 at 11:00 am #

    If you’re just going to go to the one, the ultimate, the best, funnest beer festival of the year, this is the one! Pick me, please!!!

  180. Cait M June 20, 2014 at 11:02 am #

    Because beer!

  181. Taylor E June 20, 2014 at 11:36 am #

    The NAOBF is a great event. Plenty of good suds w/out all the duds. Less crowded than the Oregon Brewers Fest and after sapping down some tasty beverages, walk over the Failing St. Foot bridge for a good time on Mississippi.


  182. Libby June 20, 2014 at 11:44 am #

    The location sounds great, the brews sound excellent. Perfect summer day!

  183. Philip Snapp June 20, 2014 at 12:40 pm #

    I would like a big delicious beer.

  184. Sarah June 20, 2014 at 1:01 pm #

    I’ve never been to this one!

  185. stacey tinney June 20, 2014 at 1:47 pm #

    I just reallllllllllllly want to go!

  186. Nola June 20, 2014 at 2:49 pm #

    So, I lost my job one year ago….have been unable to find anything thus far… had to place my dad in a full time care facility in July last year, husband had a heart attack in December, and he had open heart surgery on May 15. I’m feeling like I need a serious break… I’m broke, exhausted, and a bit depressed… winning this package would help. thx.

  187. Samantha June 20, 2014 at 2:51 pm #

    Beer is food!

    • Samantha June 20, 2014 at 2:54 pm #

      Over 12 years living in Portland and I’ve never attended. That’s just crazzzzzzy! A package from PDX Pipeline would be an amazzzzzzing gift!

  188. Sarah June 20, 2014 at 3:14 pm #

    Have never been to this festival! Sounds like a great way to spend the weekend, would love to get picked!

  189. Shaun June 20, 2014 at 3:41 pm #

    Because I was conceived as a result of beer and came out all organic, baby!

  190. debra poscharscky June 20, 2014 at 9:05 pm #

    Organics, a park, sustainability and the max!

  191. Reid June 20, 2014 at 9:15 pm #

    Listen. I don’t have a chest hair to be found on my chest. All of my friends have beards, know a local brewmaster, AND can rebuild a car engine with their buttcheeks while blindfolded. Needless to say, I am incredibly behind in the masculinity department and think this festival would catch me up on all things manly. Select me, my future depends on it.

  192. Ray Fifer June 20, 2014 at 10:59 pm #

    I’d like to attend because I’m visiting from Asheville, North Carolina and I do believe our beer scene might just beat Portland’s…Can you prove me wrong?

  193. Katy O June 21, 2014 at 8:24 am #

    Stumbled upon this festival a few years back and am excited to see how it has grown. NoPo is my ‘hood so I love having a cool event to attend where I don’t have to head downtown. “Good things!”

  194. AC June 21, 2014 at 11:04 am #

    NAOBF efforts offer an exciting way to enjoy local creations and provide stewardship for the industry. Send me!

  195. Shawn June 21, 2014 at 1:38 pm #

    I would love to try organic beer!

  196. Steve June 21, 2014 at 10:02 pm #

    Because I got the math problem right!!!

  197. Nathan June 22, 2014 at 6:16 am #

    Choose me please! Tomorrow’s my birthday and winning this would be the best present! Plus, I’m a flight attendant and have always been working during the Organic Brewers Fest but this year I’m magically off! Pretty please *bats eyelashes*. Or perhaps I could bribe you with a buddy pass? Hehehe

  198. Patrick Hyde June 22, 2014 at 7:47 am #

    I have never been to The Organic Beer Fest and it sounds like so much fun!
    Would love to surprise my girlfriend who only recently discovered she likes (good)
    It would be great to sample some tasty organic brews together in the park :-)

  199. Brett Q June 22, 2014 at 10:30 am #

    Organic beet, it doesn’t get more Portland than that!

  200. Nasheena June 22, 2014 at 12:42 pm #

    Once it hits your lips…MUST HAVE MORE! Please please pick me :-)

  201. Erin June 22, 2014 at 6:31 pm #

    I just moved to Portland with my partner this week… An organic beer festival seems the perfect way to start celebrating the move! Thank you!

  202. Lani June 22, 2014 at 6:33 pm #

    Yay! Beer fest excited!!

  203. Frank Nguyen June 22, 2014 at 7:40 pm #

    This would be the best birthday present!

  204. Alison June 22, 2014 at 8:41 pm #

    This would be a perfect way to kick off my first summer in Portland!

  205. Kacy June 22, 2014 at 10:07 pm #

    Got to get organic beer . U know !

  206. Adriane June 23, 2014 at 9:01 am #

    I REALLY want to go to this! This is my favorite of the brew fests in NW and its my birthday on Saturday! Pretty please :)

  207. Tracy June 23, 2014 at 9:26 am #

    Would love to expose my husband to organic beer and get him away from drinking only red wine.

  208. Kali Huebner June 23, 2014 at 10:02 am #

    I would love to win tickets to this event! My sister will be in town visiting from Wisconsin and it would be a great way for us to celebrate! Plus it’s all organic. How great!

  209. jules June 23, 2014 at 10:28 am #

    This festival is on the “must do” list for Portland summer fun! I can’t wait to see the new music and new beers served up for us.

    if you go, ride your bike or take the train because there is NO parking anywhere. The neighbors like it when you leave them alone as well.

    looking forward…

  210. Heather June 23, 2014 at 10:59 am #

    What a great deal, I had no idea there were contests ! Thx

  211. kimlynn June 23, 2014 at 11:01 am #

    I’ve never been to the organic fest, this would be so much fun.

  215. Alex June 23, 2014 at 4:33 pm #

    I went last year and loved it this year I plan to go on a first date and maybe start a new anniversary tradition.

  216. Hieu Tran June 23, 2014 at 5:40 pm #

  217. Patricia June 23, 2014 at 6:12 pm #

  218. Amy Lodholz June 23, 2014 at 6:36 pm #

    My partner just moved up here to be with me from Bandon oregon and this would be the first brew fest he will have ever attended it’s one of the main activities I identify with experiencing a portland summer – down in the heart of the city enjoying the sun with lots of other good natured folks. The perfect introduction to his future life. Hope we get the tickets!

  219. Marissa June 24, 2014 at 11:47 am #

    Would love to go to this, it’s right down the street and I haven’t had a chance to check it out before!

  220. Thomas Kloster June 24, 2014 at 12:50 pm #

  222. Nate June 24, 2014 at 5:04 pm #

    Beer and soccer?!?! That’s a win-win!

  223. tyler p June 25, 2014 at 8:44 am #

    There’s three types of beer. Cold beer, warm beer and free beer! All three would be great!

  224. Dylan B. June 26, 2014 at 2:57 pm #

  226. Brooke June 26, 2014 at 3:39 pm #

    This is the best beer fest in town! I tell all my friends. I heard there will be more ciders on tap this year, too. My boyfriend is allergic to hops and likes cider, so I’d love to bring him!

  227. Gwen June 26, 2014 at 3:41 pm #

    I love Portland, my hometown!

  228. Rich June 26, 2014 at 4:00 pm #

    I love beer and my girl loves festivals! Please choose us to go to this wonderful event. I’ve been trying to get her out of her Cider shell and try some good beer. This would be a perfect way to introduce her to that. Also, World Cup! Thank you for your consideration.

  229. Linda June 26, 2014 at 4:26 pm #

    I would LOVE to take my dad to this! He was out of town for Father’s Day and I don’t think he’s ever attended anything like this! Please let me take him with these tickets….

  230. Jeanne June 26, 2014 at 4:31 pm #

    I love Beer and Portland… new home rocks!

  231. Devra June 26, 2014 at 4:43 pm #

    My lovely uncle-in-law is visiting us from England this weekend. He loves ‘real’ British beer, but he’s NEVER had an organic beer. That is so wrong! This would be the perfect chance to help him taste lots of great Northwest organic beer. Thanks!

  232. Nathan June 26, 2014 at 5:23 pm #

    I want to win!!!!

  233. Robyn June 26, 2014 at 5:52 pm #

    I’d love to go to this with my best friend because we’re both foxy ladies who happen to drink a lot!

  234. Meredith June 26, 2014 at 5:54 pm #

    Not just beer, but ORGANIC beer? What beats that? NOTHING!!!

  235. judy winski June 26, 2014 at 5:58 pm #

  236. Gabe June 26, 2014 at 6:15 pm #

    Sunshine or showers make no difference food friends and a cold brew – that is what makes
