Portland (& Oregon) has a great beer events all year round, but the summer just kicks it up a notch. Last week was the Organic Beer Festival at Overlook Park, and there will be at least three more beer festivals this summer.
Is that enough? Ummm, no. What am I am supposed to do when there is no beer fest going on? Drink at a normal bar on a normal time with no special reason? Blasphemy. No worries though, they made a whole month where going to a bar is not just drinking beer but celebrating.
From Press Release:
What: Oregon's craft beer lovers will have plenty to celebrate on July 1st when Oregon Craft Beer Month (OCBM) officially begins. The Oregon Brewers Guild is ready to get the month-long party started right with an official kick-off event at Portland's Horse Brass Pub. Horse Brass owner Don Younger and his team have compiled an eclectic beer list for the evening that features selections from every region of the state.
Other cities and states may have beer weeks, but Oregon's beer culture is simply too enthusiastic to fit into just seven days – it needs a whole month. OCBM offers locals and tourists an amazing range of flavor-packed fun. OCBM is a month-long celebration of Oregon's craftbeer industry and culture, with events happening every day throughout the month of July. Oregon breweries will honor the occasion byhosting more than 150 events across the state.
When: Wednesday, July 1st from 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
