    It’s been almost a year worth of efforts and now I’ve nearly turned my fiancé into a brew loving lady! Don’t let me down, April Fool!

  3. Kjersten April 1, 2013 at 3:18 pm #

    I will be moving away from Portland in about a month after living here for 2 years. I have never been to a brewfest here and my friend and I would love to go!

  4. Bill W. April 1, 2013 at 3:42 pm #

    I love East Burn…so this will be great fun.

  5. melissa April 1, 2013 at 3:54 pm #

    Who doesn’t love beer

  8. Julio Gomez April 1, 2013 at 10:24 pm #

    What does an East Burn brew fest have that other brew fests don’t? Skee ball!!! A match made in heaven.

  9. John April 1, 2013 at 11:19 pm #

    We are rolling into PDX that weekend, and wanted to compare the IPA scene in Portland to Seattle. And just for the day we will be Timbers’ fans too!

  10. Lin April 2, 2013 at 3:40 am #

    Wow this is awesome. I have been a loyal customer of East Burn. Love their beers on tap. It would be great to know who win the IPA contest.

  11. Rich S April 2, 2013 at 9:10 am #

    Please help the wife and I get a date night this year! We have two small children and I’ve been a casualty of the broken economy. Date nights are way to expensive for us anymore and with the kids, it’s very hard to get out. This would be a real treat for us to get some quality time together. Hope to hear from you soon!

  12. Torrie April 2, 2013 at 10:11 am #

    Eastburn is the best, my boyfriend loves IPA , sounds like a great time! Besides, who doesn’t want a real pint glass?!

  13. Heather April 2, 2013 at 10:19 am #

    Beer? Ooo pick me

  14. Jen April 2, 2013 at 11:14 am #

    Ok, I could definitely use this one too, again, lost my heart cuz I was a dummy and need to distract myself…

  15. Karie April 2, 2013 at 11:40 am #

    I want to win the free passes because the summer brewfests are just too far away (ok and waaaay too packed) and I’m ready to try new beers.

  16. Greg A April 2, 2013 at 11:51 am #

    I just moved to the east side, so this is going to be a great intro to local breweries for me and my girlfriend.

  17. Dayna April 2, 2013 at 12:12 pm #

    Gotta kick off the first of many brewfests for this year!

  18. Melanie April 2, 2013 at 12:35 pm #

    My fiancé has spent a year trying to turn me into a beer lover…. I’m convinced this brewfest will succeed where he has failed!

  19. Kristin April 2, 2013 at 12:39 pm #

    Saturday is my birthday! After living at 12th and Taylor for years, I had to move away—to Kentucky, no less—but I’m coming back for the weekend to celebrate! What better way to spend the day than hanging out in the best neighborhood in Portland and drinking some great local beer?

  20. Lara April 2, 2013 at 1:53 pm #

    I will “hop” to it

  21. Kyle R April 2, 2013 at 1:56 pm #

    My girlfriend and I are avid beer drinkers, we enjoy everything from microbrews to mass produced. This seems like it would be a great event for both of us and a wonderful experience to find and explore new beers.

  22. Michelle J April 2, 2013 at 2:00 pm #

    I’m new to this event, would love to check it out!

  23. TessaJ April 2, 2013 at 2:09 pm #

  24. Rachel April 2, 2013 at 2:23 pm #

    I just moved here from Kentucky (where there are more barrels of bourbon than people), survived your mild grey winter…and I’m ready for some sunshine and brews!!!
    Plus, I live near the Buckman neighborhood!

  25. Colin April 2, 2013 at 2:32 pm #

    Basecamp is my favorite headed into this. But I’d like to give the other breweries a chance :)

  26. Zoe Camila Morgan-Montoya April 2, 2013 at 4:00 pm #

    I would love to try these delicious IPA’s on a sunny afternoon. I love Burnside, but I have yet to experience East Burn! It would be an exciting new experience.

  27. Chris Renning April 2, 2013 at 4:43 pm #

    I’ve never been to this beer fest before.

  28. Kenneth Schmidt April 2, 2013 at 4:49 pm #

  37. Rachel April 3, 2013 at 4:52 pm #

  38. Anthony Forrester April 4, 2013 at 10:08 am #

  47. Erika April 4, 2013 at 1:15 pm #

    My Spring Break has consisted of grading piles of papers, writing paragraphs upon paragraphs of reflection on student work, and watching over my boyfriend’s pet rat only to notice that she ripped her stitches out from a recent surgery resulting in a gaping hole in her abdomen….awesome, huh? :( Would free tickets (and some tasty tasty beer) fix the rat, get all my papers graded, or finish my paragraph for me? Heck no. Would it bring a tiny bit of sunshine to my life and give me a final push to finish the school year? You bet!

  48. Nathan April 4, 2013 at 3:16 pm #

    This looks fun!

  49. Cory April 4, 2013 at 3:16 pm #

  53. Chris April 4, 2013 at 3:20 pm #

    I would do a great job adjudicating some IPA.

  54. Margaret April 4, 2013 at 3:22 pm #

    As a resident of Buckman, I love the options when it comes to real local brews. I’ve poured a fair share of these pints at their different locales, but would appreciate a tutorial and update on the latest and greatest from my neighborhood brewers! And though I may have an opinion on the best neighborhood IPA, I would love to know what the experts think of the favored drink in PNW.

  55. Tim April 4, 2013 at 3:26 pm #

    Mmmmm….. Beer.

  56. Amy April 4, 2013 at 3:28 pm #

  65. Brendan Smith April 4, 2013 at 4:02 pm #

    This sounds awesome! I have a friend from out of town visiting and it would be great to share a little bit of our amazing local beer scene with them.

  66. Karen April 4, 2013 at 4:05 pm #

    It is my husbands birthday this weekend so I asked him what would be his dream weekend. His reply surprised me. He said that he would like to drive from Vancouver BC to Portland and enjoy some great beer! I went online and booked a hotel for the weekend. There would be nothing better than winning free tickets to the beer festival. See you there :-)

  67. Jeff Scherer April 4, 2013 at 4:06 pm #

    Just moved into the Buckman neighborhood and need a good pre-game spot before the Timbers beat Houston. Free tickets please.

  68. Roddy Jasa April 4, 2013 at 4:40 pm #

    So my mistress and I have something to do before I regret later that evening.

  69. Ashley Brewer April 4, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

    Because my last name is BREWER. :) Beer me!

  70. Jamie April 4, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

    Oh, how I love beer. Especially on a springtime afternoon. I’d love to chance to support our amazing neighborhood breweries while getting a chance to do some side by side comparisons.

  71. Renata April 4, 2013 at 5:08 pm #

    Love the Buckman neighborhood and East Burn! Need to try more of their food please.

  72. Mike April 4, 2013 at 5:23 pm #

  80. Carina April 4, 2013 at 6:37 pm #

    Because I live within stumbling, er, walking distance!

  81. Mary Beth April 4, 2013 at 7:07 pm #

    I’m newly 21 and ready to take the Portland beer scene by storm!

  82. Anthony April 4, 2013 at 7:08 pm #

    Because every one of these breweries (well, except Lucky Lab) opened up AFTER I moved out of the neighborhood, and now I’m far enough away that I never make the trip down.

  83. Jace April 4, 2013 at 8:30 pm #

    This sounds fun!

  84. Joshua Glassman April 4, 2013 at 8:51 pm #

    My big brother just got to town to visit me, and he has never been to Portland. Unfortunately it is rainy this weekend so we can’t go hike. Luckily I found out about this brewfest with my favorite breweries.

  88. Merry April 4, 2013 at 9:59 pm #

    My husband has been trapped in the midwest for weeks, drinking wimpy beer no less, and his birthday is this weekend! Wouldn’t I be such a thoughtful wife if I could surprise him with free tickets to the beer fest? We love, love, love the breweries of Buckman-Kerns.

  89. Midlife Finance April 4, 2013 at 10:37 pm #

    mmmmm… beer…

  90. Bruce April 5, 2013 at 5:56 am #

    After a week of hosting out of town guests I need a chance to imbibe at one of my favorite places in town to get a beer and a burger.

  91. Scott April 5, 2013 at 7:06 am #

    IPA is my favorite!

  92. Laurel April 5, 2013 at 7:25 am #

    My husband and I love local brews, IPAs are our favorite, & why not have some fun tasting great craft beers with awesome neighbors?

  93. Jaaaaaaames April 5, 2013 at 8:02 am #

    Beer glarious beer.
    It tastes so good when it hits your lips.
    A gift of a ticket, is a W for Vitamin B.
    Cheers! Prost! Slainte!

  94. Corey Perry April 5, 2013 at 8:24 am #

    I was born to attend an IPA contest! Oh and I got a 3 day weekend with nothing planned. Portland, give me something to do!!

  95. Elizabeth April 5, 2013 at 8:28 am #

    I love beer and I really like East Burn – give me one good reason why NOT to go to this Brewfest! =]

  96. rachael April 5, 2013 at 8:44 am #

    Cuz I’m an IPA whore

  97. Kristina King April 5, 2013 at 8:56 am #

    Like all others here, I love beer. I’m a recent transplant to PDX, having moved from Eugene. I need convincing that PDX has better brewfests than my hometown!

  98. David Carnese April 5, 2013 at 9:06 am #

    I love IBU’s!!! The hoppier, the better.

  99. Alethea Smartt LaRowe April 5, 2013 at 9:16 am #

    This is a short bike ride from my house!

  100. Marissa April 5, 2013 at 9:18 am #


  101. molly April 5, 2013 at 9:50 am #

    I love that this is a small festival that really lets you “get to know” all these great brewers!

  102. Sarah April 5, 2013 at 9:55 am #

    LOVE IPAs! I tried Base Camp’s for the first time last night & it was delicious!

  103. Shannon April 5, 2013 at 12:11 pm #

    I’m thirsty!

  104. birdonit April 5, 2013 at 12:31 pm #

    Not only do I love beer, but I live in this neighborhood. Beer is the best neighbor EVER!

  105. jessica s April 5, 2013 at 1:43 pm #

    Because I have 2 years left to explore the rest of Portland and this is on the bucket list. Well anything beer has to do with Portland.

  106. Joshon Miller April 5, 2013 at 1:51 pm #

    Beer. Buckman. Brewfest. Yes. Please.

  109. Kirsten Schmieding April 5, 2013 at 8:29 pm #


  110. Ruthie April 6, 2013 at 1:10 pm #

    This sounds like great fun! I am going out with a new special someone tonight who’s also new to Portland….We’re in our 60’s and extremely young at heart! This would be such a gift!

  111. Gabe June 7, 2013 at 6:32 pm #
