Update: Win Cup & Drink Ticket Package: 2011 North American Organic Brewers Festival (NAOBF)

From our partners at NAOBF:
6th Annual North American Organic Brewers Festival
Overlook Park, Portland, Oregon
June 25 27, 2010
Noon to 9 p.m. Fri & Sat
Noon to 5 p.m. Sun

Designed to raise awareness about organic beer and sustainable living, the NAOBF serves up more than 50 organic beers from around the nation.  From summery Saison and Kolsch styles to rich and hearty stouts, the festival offers beers to please every palate.  There’s also live music, organic food, sustainability-oriented vendors and non-profits, a root beer garden with complimentary Crater Lake Root Beer for minors and designated drivers, and a children’s area.

The festival goes beyond beer tasting by striving to be the most earth-friendly beer festival in North America. Festival attendees sample beer from reusable and compostable cornstarch glasses made from domestically grown corn by a zero-waste, solar-powered company. Onsite composting and recycling stations are provided for festival waste, and food vendors are required to use compostable cutlery and plates. Electricity needs are met with a combination of biodiesel and solar generators. Volunteers wear organic cotton and hemp t-shirts, and all event signage is reusable.

Admission into the event is free. The purchase of a $6 reusable, compostable cornstarch glass is required for tasting beer, as are tokens, which sell for $1 apiece. A full glass of beer costs four tokens (more for select beers), and a four-ounce taste costs one token.  Patrons receive a $1 discount toward the tasting glass with a validated MAX ticket, a ticket from the onsite secure bike corral, or three cans of food for the Oregon Food Bank.

The NAOBF is a family friendly event, and minors are welcome with parents.  The festival benefits the Leukemia Lymphoma Society and the Oregon Food Bank.

Mass Transit
The Interstate MAX/Yellow Line “Overlook Park” Station is directly across from Overlook Park and is the second stop from the Rose Quarter transit mall, heading North.

    I would like the free tix because I have 2 friends trying to decide if they should move to Portland or Philly. I’ve been arguing over FB w/our other friends (who live in Philly) which city is greater. The Philly residents tried to use a “beer week” as an arguement for Philly. I promptly laughed at them with the fact that PDX is aguably the beer capital of America!

    Moral of this story: If you give me these tix I will take a fellow beer loving friend and we will innundate the world with photos, tweets and FB updates about how Portland’s beer scene is the best. Period.*

    *hopefully resulting in my friends chosing Portland over Philly!

    • Laurie June 15, 2010 at 4:10 pm #

      please, it would be so helpful to us!

    • Lis June 18, 2010 at 3:02 pm #

      Naturally I would like to win because Organic Beer is the shizz…just sayin ;)

    • Randy June 24, 2010 at 11:29 pm #

      Hey i would love to win the pacage because im a home brewer and like the idea of organic brewin and would love to learn more about how to make a truley organic beer. I would also enjoy bringing a friend who is one of my bigest fans of my homebrew. Weather i win or not im going to socailize and mabie learn more about homebrewing clubs and the oreganic process.

  2. Nicole June 15, 2010 at 2:52 pm #

    I’ll be going anyway, but winning the extra tokens wouldn’t be too shabby. Maybe the weather will even cooperate.

  3. Josh Howton June 15, 2010 at 2:55 pm #

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win this package because my bf and I just bought a condo in the neighborhood and have been looking forward to this event since we heard about it last year. We love beer and love all things organic!! Also… it’s our 6 year anniversary on the 26th and what better way to celebrate than with friends, [free] beer and (hopefully) sunny weather!

    Josh & Reggie

  4. Stephi June 15, 2010 at 2:55 pm #

    I’ve only been to the naobf once before, and I loved it! I would love to go again, and bring my friend from out of town who also loves beer with me. It would be a real treat for both of us. :)

  5. laura June 15, 2010 at 3:06 pm #

    I want to attend because: I love beer (especially organic beer), I love Overlook Park its view of Swan Island and Forest Park, I love summer (and summer beer! I love kolsch), and I love that I can bike to the beer fest in less than 10 minutes.

  6. Matt June 15, 2010 at 3:06 pm #

    My partner and I would love to go and party in celebration of our 8 year anniversary. We live in the neighborhood and firmly believe in supporting locally produced, sustainable products.

    • Josh Howton June 18, 2010 at 4:04 pm #

      Is your anniversary the 26th too? Me and my boyfriend’s is the 26th and we’ll be there!

  7. Stacy June 15, 2010 at 3:14 pm #

    I love beer. I love Portland. My favorite kind of beer is free.

  8. Frannie June 15, 2010 at 3:14 pm #

    I should win this package because my dude & I love beer more than any other people on the face of the Earth. And we’re totally broke. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!

  9. Jennidy June 15, 2010 at 3:18 pm #

    I want to attend naobf to become better acquainted with organic beer options. Taste is important in remembering a good beer, and with this prize I’d be able to afford take a date and sample several beers.

  10. Angela June 15, 2010 at 3:21 pm #

    I want to attend because I LOVE summer and beer. This will be the perfect start to summer: good weather and good beer!

  11. Sean June 15, 2010 at 3:24 pm #

    I recently moved next to Overlook Park and would love the opportunity to go support such an awesome event in my new neighborhood. I’m also a relatively new home-brewer and the opportunity to taste some of Portland’s finest organics would be a helpful tool on my way to becoming a Master Brewer…..or it would just be fun to be able to drink free beer in a cool setting.

  12. John June 15, 2010 at 3:55 pm #

    this is the first sunny weekend I haven’t had to work this spring. Drinking beer would be a great way to celebrate!

  13. philip June 15, 2010 at 4:17 pm #

    i work saturdays and sundays, so if i could go on friday my weekend would be beer better

  14. Justin June 15, 2010 at 4:31 pm #

    Portland’s beer festivals (this one especially) are the best in the nation. We built this city on BEER (ok and maybe some rock n’ roll)!!! Those are the best reasons I can think of.

  15. Neil June 15, 2010 at 4:54 pm #

    I would love to celebrate US victory in the World Cup with a lovely organic beer in Overlook Park. Please consider me for the prize package!

  16. John La'Gere June 15, 2010 at 5:20 pm #

    There’s only one thing better than beer, and that’s free beer. Would love to go, looks like a great event to get the family out and enjoy some of Portland’s atmosphere.

  17. Melanie Baird June 15, 2010 at 5:38 pm #

    Last year after the Organic Beer festival, I took my organic cup and composted it. It got eaten by the worms, and now it is completely gone! I have a picture of it mid compost if anyone would like to see it:)

    Soooo, I would like to attend, because a compostable cup is what this world needs and I would like another cup please:)


    • Julian Chadwick June 15, 2010 at 5:41 pm #

      Yeah, let’s see the pic. Link?

  18. Damon June 15, 2010 at 5:50 pm #

    I brew my own beer and I want get my skillz up so I one day may brew as well as all the brewers who attend this festival.

  19. Christy June 15, 2010 at 5:55 pm #

    I have visitors in town from Florida and I will be showing them that there is more to life than Miller and Budweiser….AND why I continue to love everything about Portland culture more and more every year! :) I’m thirsty!

  20. Martin June 15, 2010 at 6:04 pm #

    Sounds like a fun brewfest. Collect them all!

  21. Sarah June 15, 2010 at 7:40 pm #

    Learning to love the earth and enjoying amazing brews are the ideals that Portlanders hold true. These values are very dear to my heart. I would love to go and drink delicious beer in support of mother earth.

  22. Gigi June 15, 2010 at 7:50 pm #

    I’d love to go because I’ve never been! I’ll even drink responsibly and take the Max there!

  23. sarah June 15, 2010 at 7:53 pm #

    My husband loves beer,he loves beer festivals, but just like a lot of others we are bent over and taking it from bill collectors.

    He works very hard doing security for portland most nights. He shoos away prostitutes and responds to break ins. He has had knives pulled on him and drunk girls puke into his car. He loves portland and is halfway to his criminal justice degree so he can go on to be a portland police officer.

    So in short–the economy sucks, security gets paid shit, following your dreams doesn’t put food on the table, and I want to give him an awesome day of beer and sun in the city he loves.


  24. Vanessa C June 15, 2010 at 8:10 pm #

    Last year when I went to the Organic Beer Fest, I screwed it up and had Podnah’s beforehand. Let’s just say after that and all that delicious beer, I was in some serious pain and couldn’t enjoy that beautiful day. I know, poor me right?
    This year, I’m planning on going anyway, but as a poor grad student money’s tight and it would be positively lovely to go for free. Then I can save my money for buying some of the organic basil beer!

  25. Joseph June 15, 2010 at 9:10 pm #

    Because I just planted rhizomes this year.

  26. lisa June 15, 2010 at 9:54 pm #

    Oh yes….organic beer? And meeting the creators of all that goodness? What could be better?

    I would like to win because 1. I’ve never been to this Festival 2. I would be *so* interested and appreciative of the brewers 3. I would later purchase all the beers I loved, and

    4. I’m underemployed currently, so winning tix is the only way to go!

    Thanks, Julian…..

  27. Matt Giraffe June 16, 2010 at 9:06 am #

    I’m excited to try some brews from Fort George. The coast comes to us. Vortex IPA! Quick Wit! Cheers!

  28. Jessica Breedlove June 16, 2010 at 9:08 am #

    Pick me, I’ve never been!

  29. kitty June 16, 2010 at 11:25 am #

    would love to win — am on the yellow line now!

  30. Joseph June 16, 2010 at 11:48 am #

    The past three weekends i have entertained my family, my in-laws and gone to an out of town wedding for someone I hardly know…..I need a weekend full of beer for me.

  31. Benjamin June 16, 2010 at 2:09 pm #

    Last year I spent far too much money. This time, maybe I could break even. Eh?

  32. Martin June 16, 2010 at 2:25 pm #

    I want to attend because beer will save the world. I don’t know how, but it will. You just have to drink and trust. Oh, and Overlook park is near my neighborhood and it is my favorite park to take my dogs and throw the frisbee.

  33. Ken June 16, 2010 at 7:09 pm #

    Drinking true microbrews is like extending a gigantic middle finger toward the brewers of mass-produced, commodity beers. Drinking organic is like extending two fingers. That’s reason enough to go. Add free and in Portland and it’s like extending two more fingers (which, having only two middle fingers, means I’d need to find someone else to go with me, I guess).

  34. Jenny June 17, 2010 at 1:11 pm #

    Last night I had a dream. I was standing in a bar, having a drink with naobf founder Craig Nicholls. Moses walks into the bar with a couple of compostable cornstarch glasses
    and starts reading the label…
    “‘And the beer Gods spoke all these words,’ he belts,
    ONE:’You shall have no other beer gods before Me, the One, the Only Organic Beer God.’
    TWO: ‘You shall not make for yourself an unsustainable carved image–any likeness of anything that
    is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth that provides you life through beer.’
    THREE: ‘You shall not take the name of the NAOBF, your God, in vain.’
    FOUR: ‘Remember the Organic Brewfest weekend, to keep it holy.
    FIVE: ‘Honor your mother and your beer maker.’
    SIX: ‘You shall not murder. But murdering genetically modified organisms is OK.’
    SEVEN: ‘You shall not commit adultery on Organic beer by means of satiating your thirst with any beer
    that exhibits unsustainable practices.’
    EIGHT: ‘You shall not steal…beer at NAOBF.’
    NINE: ‘You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor drinking beer.’
    TEN: ‘You shall not covet your neighbor’s house;nor his solar panels, nor his hop vines, nor anything having to do with your neighbor’s barley.’
    Moses then stops reading, reaches into robe, and pulls out his 50 dollar package to NAOBF. Go, young one, ‘Love the organic beer with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.

    In Organic Beer Essance, If I dream it, I’m hoping that 50 dollar package will come.

  35. amanda June 17, 2010 at 1:43 pm #

    Dearest PDX Pipeline,

    I would love to consume of NAOBF delicious hoppy varietals because:

    1) as a homebrewer, i understand the utmost patience, craft, and dedication it takes to make a tasty brew
    2) as a poor, mediocre homebrewer i am sadly unable to taste of such goodness
    3) i have never been to the NAOBF and hear it is the best brewfest in these here parts, or really any parts
    4) all organic=all the better
    5) all my salaried coworkers are going and i don’t want to be a lonely intern in a cubicle

  36. Brenda H June 17, 2010 at 3:55 pm #

    I would love to win this package because I am an aspiring beer connoisseur and you, PDX Pipeline, can help me on my merry way of becoming both educated and drunk:)

  37. Doug June 17, 2010 at 4:09 pm #

    Pick me. If you do I’ll sign up for the naked bike ride too.

  38. Craig Yantzer June 17, 2010 at 4:13 pm #

    My gf and I would love to attend this because we love this great city, its great people, and especially its wonderful beer. What we don’t love is the unrelentingly bad time we have had trying to find work. We are currently totally broke and this would really help keep our heads up and a smile on our faces during our struggle. :)

  39. Tim June 17, 2010 at 4:18 pm #

    I keep missing this beer festival. I need to make sure to go this year.

  40. Julie June 17, 2010 at 4:19 pm #

    I’d love to win tickets as a) I’ve never been, b) I’m unemployed and can’t afford to go and c) I love beer. What could be more persuasive? Thanks!

  41. Nessa B June 17, 2010 at 4:30 pm #

    As Homer would say, “beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer” mmmmmm…

  42. Rachel June 17, 2010 at 4:31 pm #

    I would love to win because I’ve been living in Portland for about 9 months now and haven’t been able to go to any beer festivals yet! Money is too tight for me right now, so please let me win!

  43. Sean Stutzman June 17, 2010 at 4:34 pm #

    So, this isn’t about wanting to win. This is all about having to win. I was born a thirsty white child. Through my development, doctors learned that this child needs beer. It’s essential for my survival. Have you ever looked into the eyes of a beer deprived man? It’s way worse than any of those Sally Struthers commercials, that’s for sure. The North American Organic Beer Festival could save my life. And you PDX Pipeline… Yes You… have the power to save my life. Please make it happen… for just pennies a day?

  44. Lauren June 17, 2010 at 4:36 pm #

    I love beer. Beery, beer, beer. Here it goes down, down into my belly…

  45. Kate June 17, 2010 at 4:43 pm #

    Sadly, I have no witty comments like Jenny posted nor can I break down my reason for wanting to win like Amanda did.
    I’ll go to the Organic Beer Fest whether or not I win the $50 package. Money is tight for me, but this is an AWESOME festival and I’ll let the gas bill slide for a month in order to attend.
    NW Natural seems to be the only utility that doesn’t charge a late fee, so it’s an obvious choice when I have to choose which bill to pay. I’d very much like to get the $50 package since that would mean I could actually pay my gas bill on time, but if I don’t win, that’s cool too. Cheers! :)

  46. Bennet Straussy June 17, 2010 at 4:49 pm #

    I love beer. A lot. Beer and I have had a pretty strong relationship — 10 years! Seems like only yesterday we were walking to class together, spending long nights on the phone; talking about nothing, really. I remember how magical those first few years were. There were down times, for sure… but nothing strong becomes that way without work and dedication.

  47. PDX Ray June 17, 2010 at 4:59 pm #

    Beer me! (please)

  48. Caitlin L June 17, 2010 at 5:23 pm #

    I would love to experience this fest! I love the beer fests in Portland, but I have never been to this particular one, and winning the free beer would definitely be a big pusher to make it out there and try all the tasty organic beer :) :)

  49. Darcy B June 17, 2010 at 6:12 pm #

    I would love to go because Portland makes good beer!!!

  50. Brian June 17, 2010 at 6:46 pm #

    I’m poor, about to loose my house, car, job. I can’t even afford to drink my pain away. This would be a huge help. Plus I never win anything anyway. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  51. Stefan June 17, 2010 at 7:14 pm #

    I like organic beer! Duh!

  52. Daniel June 17, 2010 at 7:18 pm #

    i should win this because my country, Mexico, beat France in the world cup today. So i can celebrate.

  53. Alethea June 17, 2010 at 7:38 pm #

    Because beer, especially organic beer, is what I live for!

  54. Jason Barton June 17, 2010 at 8:25 pm #

    In the words of Homer Simpson: “TO ALCOHOL THE CAUSE OF AND SOLUTION TO ALL OF LIFES PROBLEMS.” I would love to live the life of good ol Homer J even if its for a day. Thanks. :)

  55. daVe June 17, 2010 at 10:48 pm #

    help me find my drink!

  56. Ali June 17, 2010 at 11:32 pm #

    I’m drunk right now. Isnt’ that reason enough? Also, read my blog. Portland Twentysomething Examiner. The End. Vote Ali!

  57. Patrick June 18, 2010 at 8:48 am #

    I would love to bring my fiancee to the beer fest!
    She is not a big fan of beer because mostly she has only had crappy beer!
    I’m trying to enlighten her and introduce her the wonderful world of GREAT beer!
    This would be a great opportunity!!!

  58. Hillary June 18, 2010 at 9:04 am #

    I’d like to win so that we can use the money we would normally spend there on more brewing supplies for my husband’s homebrewing and dog treats made from his spent grains!

  59. Wayne June 18, 2010 at 9:57 am #

    Just started brewing beer. Thinking of trying an organic brew. Perhaps this would motivate me. I should get the tickets because I don’t want to go to get drunk, that’s just a sweet bonus. I want to go to drink and enjoy the beer, that’s what a beer fest is about.

  60. Amber June 18, 2010 at 11:46 am #

    I like beer. I drink it. I would like to drink fancy beer for free.

  61. Alexi June 18, 2010 at 11:57 am #

    That would be SWEET! I want to compare my homebrew to these brews and talk to brewers about organic brewing esp homebrewing. Plus, of course, I wanna drink some beerses.

  62. Danny June 18, 2010 at 1:20 pm #

    I live down the street from Overlook Park and I love beer! I would also be sharing the love with a few good friends.

  63. Caeli June 18, 2010 at 3:07 pm #

    because I’m working on bikini beer belly and I can only spend so much of my own $$ towards this goal.

  64. Charlie June 18, 2010 at 3:11 pm #

    I’d love to take my partner and celebrate our 8 year anniversary.

  65. Torridjoe June 18, 2010 at 3:11 pm #

    I want to go because I love the taste of an organic beer coming into my mouth!

    (also never been to this one, family will be gone so maximal enjoyment is possible, and because beer is love, and organic beer is true love!)

  66. Man in the mirror June 18, 2010 at 3:14 pm #

    Last year was my first year that I went to this brewfest and I had an amazing time. It was great weather which made for it being one of my favorite brew fests that I attended last year. With my bday being on June 30th this turned out to be my bday celebration and it also coincided with the recent death of the late great Michael Jackson. More than a few drinks were poured out in his honor and I’ve already decided that few more will be poured out again in honor of the anniversary of his death. Getting a package to help recover costs associated with this ceremony in MJ’s honor would be great!

  67. Zee June 18, 2010 at 3:55 pm #

    I want to go so I can drink organic beer in a public park.

  68. armando June 18, 2010 at 4:12 pm #

    i’d love to attend and try out some new beers!

  69. Kyle June 18, 2010 at 4:17 pm #

    I need this beer so I can get drunk & surf your website, pretending like I’m at the World Cup:

  70. Carrie June 18, 2010 at 4:59 pm #

    I’d like to win because … c’mon! It’s beer! I adore the independent breweries here in PDX. We’re so lucky to live in an area blessed with such beer choices. I remember visiting the beer cooler in Phoenix and wondering what universe I had dropped into. No choices! I love it here. :o)

  71. Pamela June 21, 2010 at 8:41 am #

    I recently moved to the area, within a year, before coming to Portland I thought that I did not like beer, but quickly realized that I just don’t like lagers. I am now a beer fanatic and love trying new beers.

  72. Dana June 21, 2010 at 10:27 am #

    Organic Free Beer, Fun peeps, Overlook Park! I moved to Portland 2 years ago this summer and I absolutely LOVE this town. It would be a fantastic anniversary gift and oh so sweet of you to give me this package.
    Just imagine…you can have the pleasure of making two fun lovin’ NE bike riding chicks super pickled and perfectly schwilly for the afternoon of playfulness in the sun…yes, I did say sunshine..mmmmmm!!!!
    Happy Solstice, Yo!

  73. Judy June 22, 2010 at 12:10 pm #

    I’ve spent all our money on concert tickets for this summer! We’d love to come to this (beer + beautiful setting – it doesn’t get better than that)!

  74. Jason Castro June 22, 2010 at 4:48 pm #

    I would love to have something to finally do in Portland, especially since I am broke. Jobs/Employment..let’s do this…soon?

  75. Cami June 22, 2010 at 11:02 pm #

    Because I’m a new(ish) mommy and don’t get out much. Plus, I’m trying to adopt an organic lifestyle for my son, so why not for me?

  76. Jamie June 23, 2010 at 10:33 am #

    I would like to win because I FINALLY have a day off! My roomate and I are huge brew fans and since he just finished his masters last week I would love the opportunity to take him out and celebrate!

  77. Kelley June 24, 2010 at 9:24 am #

    because organic beer tastes so much better after a 24 hour long relay race :) If we win, we promise to shower before coming to the brew fest. a win win situation!

  78. ryan June 24, 2010 at 11:23 am #

    i really really really like organic beer.

  79. echo June 24, 2010 at 2:21 pm #

    I am the ultimate beer lover and I especially appreciate a brew made in an eco-friendly manner with natural ingredients. I love Portland for the variety of high quality beers produced locally and sustainably in this region! Quality and variety is what make a beer festival the ultimate occasion for beer guzzling fun. This event brings organic beers from all over to be tried and tested by the most discerning taste buds in beer culture–Portlanders! I must attend Portland’s North American Organic Beer Festival because these brews are just waiting to be loved by me!!!

  80. Mark Fields June 24, 2010 at 11:51 pm #

    WOW,THAT WOULD BE FANTASTIC!!!My Girlfriends Birthday is on Saturday!If I could win this and take her I’d be her hero !We’d love to Sample Organic Beers at this Beautiful Setting!

  81. Raina June 25, 2010 at 9:28 am #

    I love the organic brewers fest! I go every year :)
    Just another great reason to live in Portland, and another reason to tell friends and family it’s better here!

  82. howie June 25, 2010 at 10:40 am #

    We would love to win! So excited for a family friendly brewers festival! Can’t wait to be there.

  83. Stephanie Towell June 25, 2010 at 10:45 am #

    Who doesn’t want to win free organic beer. I would celebrate winning (I never win anything. Hint, Hint.) I would also like to celebrate drinking organic beer as opposed to serving it. Whoot!

  84. Sarah June 25, 2010 at 12:05 pm #

    I came home from work all excited yesterday and said to my fiancé “I found something for us to do on Sunday”!!! He asks “oh yeah what”? I said “We can go to the Organic Brewfest, it’s only two blocks from my work and you’ve been wanting to go for three years now but we’re usually camping”! With a disappointed look on his face, a frown in fact, “I would love to, especially after brewing all that beer for the wedding in three weeks that I’m not allowed to drink right now, but we can’t afford it right now with all the wedding expenses” … I said “But you love beer, especially Organic Beer”! He replied “It will have to wait until next year, if we’re not camping”… Go figure the one year we can actually attend we cannot  Have fun everyone! Drink some brews for us! 

    (To be sung to the tune of the “Tigger” song: The wonderful thing about beer, is beer is a wonderful thing, it’s made out of hops, yeast and barley and also malt, water and grain! It’s cold and bold and brewed and sold and loved by everyone, and i want to go to the organic fest because it’s– the only one!

    Cheers :)

    I would adore the $50 prize because my boyfriend will be in town that weekend only from Calgary–where there is little good beer and it’s all real expensive.

    Plus: it’s his first time to Porltland and therefore PDX’s beer culture.

    Plus, plus: his new years’s resolution was to “drink more”

    Please :-)
