    This is one of my favorite beer festivals in Portland! I’ve been telling my parents about it and plan to take them this year. We’re looking forward to trying all the wonderful beers.

    I would love love love love LOVE to win a set of tickets! My in-law’s will be in town that weekend and this would be an amazing surprise! Weee!

  8. Letani June 20, 2012 at 12:06 pm #

    This is an amazing beer festival, but just a little too expensive for justify spending the money on.

  9. Dylan June 20, 2012 at 12:07 pm #

    I am planning on going with my dad and sister to this when she comes back into town as a kind of Father’s Day present for him and free tickets would make Father’s Day that much sweeter.

  10. Oliver June 20, 2012 at 12:08 pm #

    My cat loves beer

  11. Rain June 20, 2012 at 12:09 pm #

    This summer is our 10 year Portland anniversary, and I would like to celebrate by going to this event for the first time!

  12. Eli Nicholes June 20, 2012 at 12:13 pm #

    Beer is one of my most favorite things in the world. Currently I do not get to drink as much as I would like because I am a poor college student. Beer in the North West is the best :)

  13. Heather R June 20, 2012 at 12:13 pm #

    This is a great event and is one I don’t actually mind spending money on because it benefits the animals AND i can bring my dog with me… so much fun last year!

  14. Rainy June 20, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

    Beer, Beer and Beer.

  15. Rose June 20, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

    Nothing sounds better than a summer afternoon strolling NW Portland while tasting delicious beer and listening to live music. What would make this a dream come true? Free tickets!

  16. Angie June 20, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

    I love this fest! We’ve gone a few times. Plus, my birthday is July 21! Please help me forget I’m turning 32. Thanks!

  17. Eric June 20, 2012 at 12:21 pm #

    When you drink bad beer you get sick… When you get sick you need to throw up… When you need to throw up you go searching for a place to throw up… When you go looking for a place to throw up you throw up on the hood of a cop car… When you throw up on a cop car you go to jail, and when you go to jail your roommate is a 300lb man named Karl…. Don’t have a 300lb roommate in jail named Karl -> Get Good beer at the Portland International Beer Fest!!!

    Broke college student and beer enthusiast looking to try some unique beers this summer. Thanks for the chance PDX Pipeline!

    I’ve attended these beer festivals every year for a decade, it’d be nice to finally be rewarded for my addiction! Lol. PDX BEER FOR LIFE!!!

  19. Deepak Shenoy June 20, 2012 at 12:36 pm #

    This is one of my most favorite beer festival. Great variety of beers, awesome weather, great atmosphere. I’ve taken my out of town guests and they look forward to coming to Portland just to visit the festival. Hope I win these tickets :)

  20. Gigi June 20, 2012 at 1:04 pm #

    Had a great time volunteering last year. Would love to go again!

  21. Bridget June 20, 2012 at 1:09 pm #

    I would love to go to this because it’s the first time I can! I turned 21 after last years and it looks like a lot of fun!

  23. Tara June 20, 2012 at 1:51 pm #

    I’ve never been to this festival, it sounds amazing. Winning tickets would make my Summer fantastic!

  24. Lisa June 20, 2012 at 1:54 pm #

    This looks amazing! I’m new to Portland, and if I hadn’t already fallen in love with this city before summer started, all these beer festivals would’ve made me smitten!

  25. marc June 20, 2012 at 3:01 pm #

    Drink all the beers.

  26. Al June 20, 2012 at 3:26 pm #

  29. Liberty Martinez June 20, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

    Have never been. It sounds like fun!

  30. Casey June 20, 2012 at 5:02 pm #

    I am a beer semi snob I go as many years as I can. Love finding new beers and flavors to try. Oh how I would love free tickets. But regardless Ill be there.

  31. Travis June 20, 2012 at 5:20 pm #

    I’d like to win because i love BEER dammit!

  32. Reed June 20, 2012 at 6:14 pm #

    Studying at LC in SW Portland, my roommate and I regularly stock up on a variety of 22oz bottles. We go to Johns Market because they have the best selection of new local and global beers. We always get different, new beers to share with each other. If we win tickets, we can finally leave our grungy apartment and enjoy some delicious beer in the sunshine!

  33. Megan June 21, 2012 at 2:30 am #

    Recently moved to the area and free tickets would beer a great incentive to go!

  34. Megan June 21, 2012 at 2:30 am #

  38. Brian G June 21, 2012 at 11:14 am #

    The best of all the summer beer fests in Portland ~ NEVER MISS IT!

  39. Renata June 21, 2012 at 11:23 am #

    There are more options at this festival than any others I have been to and it is shady under the Park Block trees!

  40. kristen June 21, 2012 at 11:27 am #

    it took me 20 minutes to figure out the math problem at the bottom of the page. i deserve something for all that hard work, don’t i?

  41. vanger June 21, 2012 at 11:41 am #

    I like beer and bacon. If I got free passes to drink beer, then I could eat more bacon.

  42. Nicole June 21, 2012 at 12:00 pm #

    Beer, beer, give me da’ beer.

  43. MicK June 21, 2012 at 12:03 pm #

    I’ve never been able to attend, but heard it is fantastic! What a great way to try great bears you don’t normally have the opportunity to!

  44. Jason June 21, 2012 at 12:31 pm #

    In the immortal words of Larry the crocodile: “Beer is gud. Beer is my only frend. I luv beer.”

  45. Tonya June 21, 2012 at 12:47 pm #

    I would love to attend this! I have never been to a Portland Beer Fest, and have lived here for two years now~

  46. Courtney Mae June 21, 2012 at 1:00 pm #

    Oh good golly. I sure would like to attend the Portland International Beerfest. After several years of perfecting my homebrew craft, it sure would be nice to expand my palate now that I’m officially 21 and am allowed entry to such marvelous events!

  47. Julia June 21, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

    It gets super crowded, but with free tickets that would be fine.

  48. Steve Ferrero June 21, 2012 at 2:12 pm #

    I’d love to finally make it to beer festival.

  49. Robin June 21, 2012 at 2:28 pm #

    Nice to step out of the Beervana box once in a while and into the world of beer that is trying to compete!

  50. Catherine June 21, 2012 at 2:29 pm #

    I wait every year for the beer festival! I have friends that come in to town as well and this would offset some of the cost of the weekend.

  51. Barbara June 21, 2012 at 2:35 pm #

    It’s no secret that I love beer. I’ve never been to this particular festival though and I’m excited to see what it’s all about. If I could please win tickets for my husband and I that would be delightful. I love you PDX Pipeline.

  52. Benito June 21, 2012 at 2:45 pm #

    Last year’s beer fest made such an impression on me, I decided to move to Portland! I’d love to go again!!

  53. [email protected] June 21, 2012 at 3:09 pm #

    i am drooling already…

  54. Joe M. June 21, 2012 at 3:10 pm #

    I have never been – would love to try internation beer!

  55. Sarah June 21, 2012 at 3:12 pm #

    I love Beer. and am Poor. Pick me!

  56. Kelsey C June 21, 2012 at 3:13 pm #

    I have only been able to afford beer fests by volunteering at them. Would love to treat myself at this one.

  57. Brian June 21, 2012 at 3:13 pm #

    Every beer fest I’ve been to is great and I’ll be in town now that I’m not going to CHBP!

  58. Jenni June 21, 2012 at 3:16 pm #

    I like the really old recipe trappist beer. I would love tickets!

  59. Jared June 21, 2012 at 3:16 pm #

    Sounds Awesome. It would be a great birthday gift (22nd)

  60. Keri June 21, 2012 at 3:17 pm #

    Please give my broke ass a great way to celebrate my Birthday!!

  61. Nick June 21, 2012 at 3:18 pm #

    I am the #1 friend of International Beer on MySpace. I was above Tom. And yes, people still use MySpace.

  62. rachel June 21, 2012 at 3:19 pm #

    My brother and I just moved here from Oklahoma and we both love a good beer! I would love to surprise him with tickets and drink away our homesickness together! :)
    PDX Pipeline has been awesome for us as the new kids in town though! I love all the giveaways and the newsletter!

  63. Jeremy June 21, 2012 at 3:20 pm #

    Beer + Summer = Paradise in PDX.

  64. seth francis June 21, 2012 at 3:20 pm #

    Yes Please!! I have never been to this beer festival and have regretted it every year. Traveling is my favorite thing to do yet I cannot because I am poor student, and can’t even drink much for the same reason. Please let me travel the world through the sweet nectar of their fine brews, and I will be the happiest man in portland !

  65. Andy June 21, 2012 at 3:20 pm #

    I would love a pair of tickets to this. The wife and I haven’t gotten out much since the birth of our little one and this sounds perfect! Crossing my fingers.

  66. Brooke June 21, 2012 at 3:22 pm #

    HUGE fan of complex beers, and this festival brings rare brews from around the world that we would have a hard time tasting here in PDX otherwise. So very excited for the festival, but it’s much more expensive than the others so I rarely go. Would love tickets! Thanks for offering.

  67. Tim June 21, 2012 at 3:22 pm #

    I have never been to this one but I hear it’s a good one to go to! Would love to try some more international beer varieties. Tickets please!

  68. james June 21, 2012 at 3:23 pm #

    Who am I? What year is this? Must. Find. The. Beerfest. Must complete the prime directive …

    Sign me up!

  70. sam June 21, 2012 at 3:24 pm #

    just because

  71. Jennifer June 21, 2012 at 3:25 pm #

    Need. Beer. In my belly. Now.

  72. Brandon June 21, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

    I would absolutely love an opportunity to get out and enjoy the Portland summer while simultaneously experiencing a variety of new, refreshing beers! I can’t think of many better ways to spend the day!

  73. mary June 21, 2012 at 3:30 pm #

    Beer. Free beer? I dont believe I need to say more…..

  74. Nola Borland June 21, 2012 at 3:32 pm #

    Have never been to this one, but would love to attend!! Love beer, love ales, am a Portland native and what’s more native than beer in the summer in Portland for a true Portlander. Please.

  75. Roger June 21, 2012 at 3:32 pm #

    Would very much enjoy free passes to this one please.

  76. diego June 21, 2012 at 3:32 pm #


  77. Angie June 21, 2012 at 3:33 pm #

    This would be a fun birthday weekend activity. Thanks for the chance to win.

  78. Jess June 21, 2012 at 3:35 pm #

    International beer fest = I will drink all the beer in the world!

  79. diego June 21, 2012 at 3:37 pm #

    TICKETS! WHOOT! PIPELINE! YEAH! Please beer me.

  80. Alanna June 21, 2012 at 3:37 pm #

    Hello. I drink beer please!

  81. Katie June 21, 2012 at 3:38 pm #

    I’m in!

  82. Greg June 21, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    This just sounds awesome!

  83. Dad June 21, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    I would donate the pair of tickets to my daughter (over 21) in college; and her recent friend who just graduated.

    As there are no jobs for them, they need to experience life beyond PBR. Truly, it seems unfair to graduate from college and not also graduate your tastes…

  84. Kelly June 21, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    life is hard, beer is good.

  85. Tonya June 21, 2012 at 3:41 pm #

    Because I’m awesome.

  86. Andrew June 21, 2012 at 3:41 pm #

    The person in front of me bought the last tickets for the Iceland-Denmark-Scotland-Belgium-Netherlands Brew Bus. I thought it rude he bought 99 tickets and wouldn’t leave me one. But I didn’t complain because I knew karma would find it’s way back to me. …via free tickets to the next best thing?

  87. Melinda June 21, 2012 at 3:44 pm #

    Excellente!!! I would be so stoked to win these tickets. My b/f and I work hard and never really get a chance or can afford to go to events like this and it would be a special treat. He loves imported/international beer and is always looking for new ones in the store. This would be a great stress reliever and quality time for us to spend together and experience some of the most excellent and finest beers out there!

  88. Brendan Smith June 21, 2012 at 3:57 pm #

    This sounds awesome. I have just started to really appreciate some international beers (mostly Belgian). I’ll definitely want to check this out.

  89. Coni Rios June 21, 2012 at 3:57 pm #

    I love this beer Fest since it is in the North Park blocks and has some interesting beers that are hard to find. The people that attend are more chill than some other beer fests. I’d love to win tickets to go!

  90. jjwoosh June 21, 2012 at 4:01 pm #

    I’m a gonna be the winner. I’m gonna be the winner. I love beer

  91. Chris June 21, 2012 at 4:04 pm #

    This is my favorite beer fest in Portland! I would be great to take the girl I’ve been digging on to this! Oh and I need another little glass to round out my set!

  92. liz June 21, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    I’ve never been this beer festival and I really would love to go, please pick me!

  93. Jack June 21, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    Pick me! Pick me! After decades of being picked last for various little/big kid sports … this is my chance to be first!

  94. Ben June 21, 2012 at 4:09 pm #

    I had to miss last year because I was out of town on work. This year I’m in town and psyched. Getting it free would make my weekend complete and be a great kick into the swing of things of summer and great weather and hopefully a nice little break from work.

  95. Rebecca June 21, 2012 at 4:09 pm #

    Bien sur! I love international beers!

  96. Minna June 21, 2012 at 4:10 pm #

    Oh wow, thanks for the chance to win! We’ve been to this festival once before, and have determined it is the best of our many, many festivals. Great location, chill crowd, excellent brews (local as well as imported)… I personally enjoy trying the ciders and beers I just can’t buy a whole bottle of (due to also wanting $$ for food/mortgage/etc.).

    The lack of other brewfest “woo!” crowds + fancy pants beer + still serving up tasters in _glass_ glasses = great experience!

  97. lisa June 21, 2012 at 4:15 pm #

    love beer. love you more. pick me! :)

  98. Polly June 21, 2012 at 4:15 pm #

    I love Portland Beerfests!!

  99. Ziggy June 21, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

    Hot Town, summer in Beer City, back of my throat gettin’ thirsty and gritty. Been down, isn’t it a pity, but winning Fest tickets would sure be pretty.

  100. steve parker June 21, 2012 at 4:24 pm #

    I’m trying to ween myself and a friend off red wines think this could help???

  101. Claire June 21, 2012 at 4:24 pm #

    I’m going off my antidepressants and what enter way to celebrate than drinking beer? ;)

  102. Claire June 21, 2012 at 4:26 pm #

    *better, not enter. Damn iPhone.

  103. christine Hippeli June 21, 2012 at 4:26 pm #

    I need help…this would help.

  104. Stephen June 21, 2012 at 4:30 pm #

    I have the coolest gf in the world and I want to take her. Yeeeeaaaaahhhhhhh.

  105. Tab June 21, 2012 at 4:38 pm #

    my best friends are coming to visit for the first time that weekend, and a beer fest would be the perfect way to introduce them to all that Portland has to offer :-)

  106. Brian June 21, 2012 at 4:40 pm #

    Seeing as I’ve never won anything in my life responding to this is probably pointless. Seeing as I’ve just been laid off (high school teacher, seemingly an unsustainable career choice) I could never afford to experience this fest otherwise. Hey, maybe it’s time my luck turned around.

  107. Terry June 21, 2012 at 4:40 pm #

    Best beer party of the summer! Hop to it!

  108. Sarah June 21, 2012 at 4:47 pm #

    One of the best weekends of the summer!

  109. Stephen June 21, 2012 at 4:51 pm #

    The answer to the math question, 42, is the number of beers I will drink.

  110. allison June 21, 2012 at 4:54 pm #

    Simply put: I need to get my drink on. I will spare you the gory details of why that needs to happen.

  111. Kim June 21, 2012 at 5:12 pm #

    I love beer fests. I have been to a lot of them. This is the only fest I haven’t had a chance to check out. It would be awesome to go!

  112. Dian June 21, 2012 at 5:22 pm #

    Even though I’ve been to a few beerfest, I don’t think I’ve been to this one. That’s why I want to go!

  113. Cory Shird June 21, 2012 at 5:22 pm #

    Beer is good

  114. Dave June 21, 2012 at 5:30 pm #

    You had me at beer.

  115. Patrick June 21, 2012 at 5:30 pm #

    I have missed this the last 2 years, been out of town, but will be here this year, and I can’t wait. One of the best Fests of the season.

  116. Christina June 21, 2012 at 5:31 pm #

    Been waiting all year!! So close now…

  117. Stu June 21, 2012 at 5:35 pm #

    Great festival!

  118. Sara Kelly June 21, 2012 at 5:38 pm #

    This summer my husband and I will celebrate our son’s first birthday. This means a year of poopy diapers, sleepless nights, and drinking amazing local beers in the middle of the night, when he is asleep and we can be grown ups. For his birthday, give him happy parents. We’d love the day to discover new brews and act like adults during daylight hours :)

  119. Anthony June 21, 2012 at 5:42 pm #

    No waiting in line? At a Portland Beer Festival?? This is an amazing opportunity if for no other reason than that!

  120. bc June 21, 2012 at 6:04 pm #

    beer is the way to international amity

  121. Nicki H June 21, 2012 at 6:17 pm #

    I think this is the best beer fest in PDX. If I get tickets I’ll donate the extra cash to Pet Cross. Will there be a pet-a-puppy booth?

  122. Ashley S. June 21, 2012 at 6:22 pm #

    Would love to win! Just moved to the Portland area and would love start the summer off with beer fest!

    Oh yes, Portland International Beer Festival. We shall be together at long last. My heart is all aflutter.

  124. Megathon June 21, 2012 at 6:44 pm #

    Probst! I shall thank and toast PDX Pipeline with gusto if I am a lucky winner of tickets to PIB Fest.

  125. Jeff June 21, 2012 at 6:58 pm #

    This my favorite beer festival in Portland! My girlfriend has missed it 2 years running, and I am really excited to get to finally take her. Hope everyone enjoys it as much as we will.

  126. rocielle June 21, 2012 at 7:03 pm #

    I’d love to win because I’m 21 and I can finally go!

  127. Libby June 21, 2012 at 7:07 pm #

    I have only heard good things but I’m hoping that this year is my chance to go. Beer and summertime? Awesome.

  128. Karl June 21, 2012 at 7:13 pm #

    Bier ist zehr gut meine freunde.

  129. Nick c. June 21, 2012 at 7:16 pm #

    I love going to this beer fest because it give me a chance/ excuse to drink beers that are not from the northwest! I want to go to experience the world… Of beer…
    Pick me because I will put these tickets to good use!

  130. Liberty Martinez June 21, 2012 at 7:24 pm #

    This sounds like a blast would love tickets!!

  131. Shell June 21, 2012 at 8:52 pm #

    Simply because I freaking love Portland and beer! What a great combination, awesome city and support our local brewerys!!

  132. Sarah June 21, 2012 at 9:04 pm #

  133. Liz June 21, 2012 at 9:05 pm #

  134. Kenneth Schmidt June 21, 2012 at 9:14 pm #

    Cerveza or Bier?

  135. Gretchen M June 21, 2012 at 10:01 pm #

    This is my favorite beer fest in Portland!

  136. Stan June 21, 2012 at 10:05 pm #

    Bier, Cerveza, Pivo, Beer… No matter what language you say it in, it still tastes delicious.

  137. Jacqueline Marie June 21, 2012 at 10:15 pm #

    With over 100 people vying for these free tickets, I’m not likely to win them. HOWEVER! “You can’t win unless you play” & “one person will get picked, so it may as well me ME!” So, count me in the drawing, please. I’d love to go.

  138. boomerpdx June 21, 2012 at 10:27 pm #

    Becuase Man does not live by IPA alone :-)

  139. Jeanne June 21, 2012 at 10:29 pm #

    What a wonderful way to show a visiting guest our great city. Beers, Microbrews & walking around downtown.

  140. Scotty June 21, 2012 at 10:32 pm #

    I could totally use those tickets. How about you send them my way. Thanks

  141. Claire June 21, 2012 at 10:34 pm #

    I went to Germany but didn’t get to try any beer (I know I’m a disgrace to beerkind). Let me make up for it by going to this event.
    Thanks PDX Pipeline for always keeping me in the loop with Portland Events!

  143. steadycat June 21, 2012 at 10:57 pm #

  144. patti June 22, 2012 at 2:58 am #

    would be my first beer festival! let me redeem the family name, my dad drank schlitz.

  145. Barrett June 22, 2012 at 3:01 am #

    I like beer and other countries.

  146. veronica June 22, 2012 at 3:56 am #

    I’ve been in PDX for 6 years and still haven’t gone…I need to go badly before I move! Please :) And I love beer!

  147. Rachel June 22, 2012 at 6:44 am #

    This would be the perfect way to celebrate my birthday – it’s actually this weekend, but since I have to work – next weekend will be the best time to celebrate!

  148. Carolyn June 22, 2012 at 7:47 am #

    I’d love to go to this since I’m new to Portland and want to learn about the beer being showcased!

  149. Chris Renning June 22, 2012 at 8:20 am #

    Wow, good food, beer and in the park blocks! Count me in.

  150. Jennifer June 22, 2012 at 8:42 am #

  152. Jana June 22, 2012 at 9:07 am #

    My twin sister just moved back to Portland and I want to go to this with her but I’m a broke college student and I can’t afford it!

  153. Benjamin Dictus June 22, 2012 at 9:34 am #

    I really need this? Existentially, yes.

  154. Karen H June 22, 2012 at 9:45 am #

    I would love to go to the IBF because I have never been before. Thanks for the opportunity!

  155. amy June 22, 2012 at 9:48 am #

    I would love, love, love to win tix to this event. Pick me, please! :)

  156. Ninfa June 22, 2012 at 9:49 am #

    My hubby would love this…

  157. Arni June 22, 2012 at 9:52 am #

    Summer days drinking beer in the park blocks. Yes Please!!!

  158. Claire June 22, 2012 at 10:08 am #

    A haiku for brew,
    International tastes good,
    Free tickets taste best.

  159. Josh June 22, 2012 at 10:27 am #

    I am looking forward to trying those 6 token rare samples this year.

  160. Brittany June 22, 2012 at 10:52 am #

    Would love to be able to try some rare beers! :)

  161. Jane June 22, 2012 at 10:58 am #

    I would totally appreciate these tickets. I volunteer at the beer fests all over Portland because I love beer and festivals but have a very limited budget. I have for three years in a row tried to get on the PIB volunteer staff but those choice spots are hard to come by since most vollies return year after year. It feels very morbid and against my gentle humanitarian nature to be hoping someone dies so I can get their coveted PIB volunteer spot and attend the festivities. Please help save my soul. The thirst is making me depraved.

  162. Kathy June 22, 2012 at 11:29 am #

    Portland, not just the Rose city. The BEER city!!

  163. Jeremie June 22, 2012 at 11:35 am #

    I’d love to attend because this is the only year I’ve not worked for PIB and it’s time for me to relax and enjoy it this time. :) I’d love tickets. Please hook me up. Thanks!

  164. Kate June 22, 2012 at 11:42 am #

    I would like to attend because my best friend from Chicago is visiting and I would love to introduce her to some incredible beers!

  165. Geneva June 22, 2012 at 12:05 pm #

    SOUNDS AWESOME! Worldly beer and lots of people in downtown Portland? Sounds like a great summer day!

  166. Monica June 22, 2012 at 12:59 pm #

    I want to because I want to finally be able to say that without a doubt, Portland beers are the best! (Although don’t get me wrong — I’m sure International beers will be a close second).

  167. Christine June 22, 2012 at 1:11 pm #

    I need a good beer!

  168. Karli June 22, 2012 at 1:17 pm #

    Been a few years since I have been.

  169. Jason June 22, 2012 at 2:00 pm #

    This sounds like a ton of fun and I am exited to try some beers that you don’t normally see around the NW.

  170. Nader June 22, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

    One of the best, but most expensive, beer fests in PDX

  171. daniel June 22, 2012 at 2:39 pm #

    Can’t wait

  172. Ali June 22, 2012 at 3:48 pm #

    I moved here from Oklahoma 7 years ago and will never drink 3.2 beer ever again. Please fund my worthy cause.

  173. Carolyn June 22, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    This is the best fest in Portland, in my experience. Crowded, sure, but with mostly nice people. No drunken frat boys! Would love to go this year.

  174. Joel H June 22, 2012 at 5:53 pm #

    This beer fest is beyond my budget, so I hope to win some tickets. Thanks!

  175. Lauren June 22, 2012 at 6:50 pm #

    I love this festival and would love to win tickets. I can usually afford to go but the beer I want is always a million tickets. It would be nice to have some extras so I could splurge on some yummy beers!

  176. Alex June 23, 2012 at 8:16 am #

    I’ve missed the last two and would love to finally go this year!

  177. Roddy Jasa June 23, 2012 at 8:25 am #

    I may not be able to travel the world but this would be a start.

  178. Taylor June 23, 2012 at 10:04 am #

    This is my favorite event in Portland! I would love to go this year!!!

  179. Evan L June 23, 2012 at 11:49 am #

    I went last year and it was a blast!! I hope to go here again this July

  180. K Funk June 23, 2012 at 1:22 pm #

    Oh beer. Now that it’s officially summer, I am overwhelmingly compelled to drink all things hoppy and brewed. Make my dreams come true!

  181. ashley June 23, 2012 at 3:42 pm #

    I’d like to go cause I’ve lived in Portland for 3 years yet have never been to any of the beer/brewer’s festivals. This one would be amaaazing

  182. Sam H. June 23, 2012 at 5:37 pm #

    July is my month and the international beerfest is my fest. I need this like a hipster need jorts and fixies.

  183. Diane June 23, 2012 at 5:42 pm #

  185. Monica Wander June 24, 2012 at 3:48 am #

    I’ve heard this festival is one of the best. I’d love to go

  186. Steve Burnett June 24, 2012 at 3:49 am #

    Beer, sunshine, food, Portland and I don’t have to pay?!?! Yes please, i beg of you

  187. Joseph Keebler June 24, 2012 at 7:54 am #

    I think this sounds amazing! I wonder what country’s beer I would try first.

  188. Travis June 24, 2012 at 8:42 am #

    Ooh ooh ooh! Pick me!

  189. shannon barkley June 24, 2012 at 11:53 am #

  191. Sheila June 24, 2012 at 8:48 pm #

    I’m trying everything to get my husband back on the same page with me and this was an event we always enjoyed together. I’d like to win the tickets and take him on a date. Cheers to rekindled love.

  192. Cal Habig June 24, 2012 at 10:02 pm #

  195. Christa A. June 25, 2012 at 11:53 am #

    Believe it or not this is the first time I have heard of this festival and I found out about it by looking it up here on PDX Pipeline. I want to beer it up at the International Beerfest.
