From our sponsors:
Oregon Brewers Fest26th annual Oregon Brewers Festival
July 24-28, 2013 | Free Entry

Tom McCall Waterfront Park
Main entrance at S.W. Oak Street and Naito Parkway
Portland, Oregon | oregonbrewfest.com

Wed through Sat, taps are open from Noon to 9 p.m.
Sun, taps are open from Noon to 7 p.m.

On a sun-soaked July afternoon, there’s no better place to sip suds with friends than the Oregon Brewers Festival, one of the nation’s longest-running and best-loved craft beer festivals. Nearly 80,000 fans annually travel from points around the world to take part in the event. This year, they’ll have an extra day to celebrate; the 26th Oregon Brewers Festival will take place July 24 through July 28 at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland, marking an expansion to five days. Event hours are Noon to 9pm Wed. through Sat., and Noon to 7pm Sunday.

Another big change to this year’s event is the introduction of a tasting glass. In an effort to improve the tasting experience for the guest and to be more environmentally responsible, the Oregon Brewers Festival will now sell a tasting glass in lieu of the traditional plastic mug. Admission into the festival grounds is free. In order to consume beer, purchase of a 2013 souvenir 12-ounce tasting glass is required and costs $7. Beer is purchased with wooden tokens, which cost $1 apiece. Patrons pay four tokens for a full glass of beer, or one token for a taste. There are no advance tickets sold to the festival; all purchases are made on-site.

From Ambers to Alts, Belgians to Blondes, Pales to Pilsners and Sessions to Stouts, the Oregon Brewers Festival serves up more than 30 beer styles from 82 craft breweries from around the country; there are 84 different beers served, one per brewery plus two gluten-free offerings. The festival is first and foremost a celebration of beer, but the event also features five days of live music, food booths, craft vendors, homebrew demonstrations and industry displays. A root beer garden provides complimentary handcrafted root beer to minors and designated drivers; minors are allowed into the event when accompanied by a parent.

Alternative modes of transportation are encouraged, with free monitored bicycle parking available each day. The main entrance is at SW Oak Street and Naito Parkway, one block from the MAX Light Rail line.

ABOUT THE OREGON BREWERS FESTIVAL
The Oregon Brewers Festival was founded in 1988 as an opportunity to expose the public to microbrews at a time when the craft brewing industry was just getting off the ground. Today, that industry has flourished, especially in Oregon, which has 134 brewing companies operating 166 brewing facilities in 60 cities. Portland alone has 51 breweries — more than any other city in the world. The Portland metropolitan area is the largest craft brewing market in the US with the most number of breweries at 68. A study conducted at the 2011 Oregon Brewer Festival estimated the economic impact of the festival on the local economy to be $23.2 million; it also showed that out-of-state and international visitors accounted for 56% of attendees.

    First! Please give me one of the beer packages for actually reading my PDXPipleline emails! Also, my boyfriend’s birthday is the 27th and I would love to be able to take him to the beer fest for free! :D

    • Laura Nelson July 16, 2013 at 7:11 am #

      I moved to Portland almost a year ago from Indiana, just missing the Oregon Brewer’s Festival. Growing up, my parents brewed and I was a loyal IPA-fan, but living in Portland has opened my mind and palate to so many other styles of beer. My birthday’s July 26th and it would be awesome to celebrate it with great beers and great people!

    • Terra McGill July 19, 2013 at 8:21 pm #

It will be their first time in portland and they LOVE festivals, the northwest, and us and are so excited to visit! This will be a great time to cap off their trip before flying back to the humidity and winning this could make the experience even more awesome.

  22. Riagan Orr July 15, 2013 at 2:13 pm #

    I attended the OBF in ’09, but for personal reasons have not been able to go back since! This year I’m ready. Lets make it happen!!

  37. Marty July 15, 2013 at 2:40 pm #

    I’m dying to win! One of my longtime friends is finally coming home from Japan and I’d love to take him so I can reintroduce him to real beer… He’s been living on Sapporo and saké for a year!

  38. Claudia W July 15, 2013 at 2:40 pm #

    Because the OBF would make us so very Portland! BONAFIDE.

  39. Alyssa July 15, 2013 at 2:40 pm #

    This is the BEST brew festival of the year and can not be missed!!
    Parents are in town too, would be a great PDX event.

  40. Pat White July 15, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    I would like to taste der beer danke.

  41. Ashley July 15, 2013 at 2:48 pm #

    Let’s be honest. I go every year, and regardless or not if I win this package, my friends and I will definitely be attending again. It’s our go-to summer meet up, almost like a reunion of sorts. You really can’t beat the OBF — there is nothing like it!

    … but that’s not to say I wouldn’t really, really appreciate the free ride this year. Put my name in for the package please!

  42. Katie July 15, 2013 at 2:48 pm #

    Simple…I love my Oregon and I love my beer. Plus, I’m broke as a joke because I work for a non-prof. It’d be nice to relax in the sun while sampling some wonderful brews with my equally wonderful guy.

  43. Jessica July 15, 2013 at 2:50 pm #

    We attend this event every year and it is the best!

  44. Heather July 15, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

    I go every year. It’s one of my favorite events. I never get to try as many beers as I would like due to a lack of funds and time. But winning this would help with the funds and it opening a day early would help with the time. Please, please pick me!

  45. Fred July 15, 2013 at 3:07 pm #

    I would love to attend this event. I have never won anything on PDX Pipeline in over a year, so I have been wondering if there will ever be that chance, but I’ll try for this event. It would be wonderful to get the chance to attend this event with the package you are offering.

  46. Mindy July 15, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

    I would love to win tickets to the festival!

  47. Grigalton July 15, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

    Its my Stagg Event that same Weekend, which in England means its my bachelor party! So Free Beer Would be the best Stagg Present ever!

  48. Katie July 15, 2013 at 3:15 pm #

    Beer + summer = fun. Pick me!

  49. Kelly C July 15, 2013 at 3:15 pm #

    I have never been to OBF and would love to go. This year I have friends going and just do not have the funds to get to the event again. Usually time but this year with the wife out of work and mine is slowing down for the season.
    OBF is going to be an awesome event this year and should present a great opportunity for beer lovers from all around… I just hope I get to be one of those people this year..
    Thanks for listening…

  50. David July 15, 2013 at 3:16 pm #

    I would love to win tickets. I have never been but want to!

  53. Mychal July 15, 2013 at 3:25 pm #

    Haiku will be used.
    Hopefully, you’ll be amused,
    rather than confused.

    The pack should be mine,
    as I can’t spare a dime,
    on a Bud light lime.

    I love the beer fest,
    Ales, lagers, food, cheers and jest –
    it’s my family’s crest

    Please send me Pipeline
    Beer to drink and food to dine
    Plastic mug o’ Barleywine

  54. Bryan July 15, 2013 at 3:39 pm #

    Never too busy for beer.

  55. Stephanie July 15, 2013 at 3:40 pm #

    Just moved back to Portland after being away for 10 years and have been waiting for this event! Would love to go!!!

  56. Jaclyn July 15, 2013 at 3:40 pm #

    This is the only beer fest I have yet to attend! Would be an awesome first time :)

  57. Oliver July 15, 2013 at 3:43 pm #

    My wife and I will be going on opening day to celebrate our 3rd wedding aniversary. 3 years ago we went with family and wedding party members who were in town as a pre celebratation and had a blast (not to say that in every other year that we have gone hasn’t been). Now we are going to celebrate us and have a mid-week break from work and parenthood responsibility (childcare also falls on our anniversary!). I would love to treat my wife to some awesome free beer for our anniversary! Cheers!

  58. Karen July 15, 2013 at 3:49 pm #

    My partner is a beer nut and this would be an amazing birthday gift!!

  59. Lurissa July 15, 2013 at 3:54 pm #

    Although I have German blood running through my veins, I’ve never found a beer I like. Help me out! Maybe there’s one at the Beer Fest that’s just right for me! I’ll take take my beer loving fiance to help me choose.

  60. Steven Burke July 15, 2013 at 4:21 pm #

    The Festival is an annual pilgrimage for myself, friends and family. We start with the parade, and then continue with the festivities with enthusiasm. It is a great time, and a chance to sample a lot of great beers from around the region. I can’t wait to go again. Plus, it would be awesome to win a package. Awesome.

  61. Dougie July 15, 2013 at 4:24 pm #

    Please Pick me!!

    the 25th of July is my birthday! I can not think of a better wy to celebrate than to be at the Beer Fest!!

    Dougie

  62. Jill July 15, 2013 at 4:38 pm #

    My husband and I haven’t even been married a year and we’ve barely seen each other! He’s a law student and I’m a nursing student and our schedules are completely opposite. I’d love to be able to surprise him and take him to the brewer’s festival to celebrate our first year of marriage!

  63. Matt Shoobridge July 15, 2013 at 5:07 pm #

    I love PDX and OBF!

  64. Emily July 15, 2013 at 5:26 pm #

    I’ve been volunteering at this for years but won’t be able to this year :-( so free beer packages would mean I could still go! Please help me out!

  65. Josh July 15, 2013 at 6:33 pm #

    I should win for scrolling all the way down this list of comments… Good grief. Just kidding PdxPipeline folks! Appreciate the give-away for sure!

    I want to attend because… Well, there’s beer! And good beer – even though this festival tends to be really ale-heavy, but I realize the time of year and locale sort of dictate. I love being able to get beer on tap from brewers that aren’t necessarily from the Pacific Northwest.

  66. DIANE CHARMLEY July 15, 2013 at 6:40 pm #

    Back now in my home town and looking foward to tasting all the supreme brew here in Oregon. Love the idea of mine own tasting glass.

  67. Noel July 15, 2013 at 7:50 pm #

    OBF is always on my calendar for every last full weekend of July and this year I’m cancelling a camping trip to be there. 11 days to go, but I’m already excited for beer and pre-funking on Sunday with the Big Float! Free beer tokens and glasses for me and my hop-head boyfriend would make an awesome weekend even awesomer!

  68. jenn munster July 15, 2013 at 7:53 pm #

    I’d love to win because I love beer, summer, and PDX!!

  69. Erik July 15, 2013 at 9:14 pm #

  71. Tanya F July 15, 2013 at 10:32 pm #

    My family is in town for the first time since we moved here several years ago, and this would be a great way to show them a good time!

  72. Sus July 15, 2013 at 10:50 pm #

    me me me meeeeee!

  73. Gwen C July 15, 2013 at 11:21 pm #

    I have heard tales of this legendary event, but thought it to be the ravings of drunk old men seeking to relive better times. I would be excited beyond your wildest imaginings to behold and partake of this gathering of brewers and their alchemical accomplishments!

  74. rachel July 15, 2013 at 11:42 pm #

    I would love to win this!! Cheers!!

  80. JP July 16, 2013 at 10:22 am #

    I have attended the festival for four years now. Would be great to experience it in a whole new way, telling everyone about PDX Pipeline and how they sent me to be an IPA advocate this time. :-)

  81. JP July 16, 2013 at 10:27 am #

    I have attended this festival for four years now. It would be great to experience it a new way, informing everyone how PDX Pipeline sent me to be an IPA advocate ;)

  83. GetDOWN PDX July 16, 2013 at 10:33 am #

    I haven’t been able to make it out to a beer festival in Oregon since moving here. It would be such a treat to attend one this summer. Tuition takes most of my money so to win these would be awesome!!!

  84. Cath July 16, 2013 at 10:56 am #

    Mmmmm… Oregon beer! I would love to go!!

  85. Archell Banta July 16, 2013 at 11:09 am #

    I would love to win tickets to my first BrewFest in Oregon after living in Hawaii with no BrewFests! I have family coming from Oahu and it would all of our experiences that much better if we had your support with free tickets!

  87. Mark July 16, 2013 at 11:21 am #

    My wife’s birthday is Friday 7/26. We are already planning to spend the day down there but if I could surprise her with one of these packages it would really make for an awesome day! We’ve been attending the OBF since 1995 (I still have most of my plastic mugs) and we have an absolute blast every single year. We are really looking forward to going back this year with the added bonus of celebrating her birthday!

  88. Rob Melton July 16, 2013 at 11:52 am #

    Oregon Brewers Festival is the best place this weekend for food, fun, beer, sunshine and music — all in one place — Waterfront Park!

  89. Chadd July 16, 2013 at 12:05 pm #

    I will skip work to drink beer

  90. Kirsten Haines July 16, 2013 at 12:06 pm #

    My boyfriend and I work like crazy and have little time and money (since we are paying medical bills, student loans, and other bills and trying to save for a house and a wedding) to spend on us. We would like a package so we can enjoy sometime together this summer. Plus what’s better then good beer and good company? Whooohoo go Vertigo Brewing!!!

  91. ryan evans July 16, 2013 at 12:11 pm #

    duh, cause I love PDX summers and beer!

  92. Phillip July 16, 2013 at 12:12 pm #

  93. Chelse Rin July 16, 2013 at 12:15 pm #

    I’d like to go to the brewers ball! Haven’t been since my husband’s place of employment stopped providing us with tokens and mugs. In this economy, I just can’t afford to spend my own money on such luxuries.

    I would love to go! My buddy is flying in from out of town during the festival, and as a new PDX resident, I want to experience the best of Portland, including this festival!

  102. Matt July 16, 2013 at 12:43 pm #

    B- is for beautiful, that’s what Portland is
    E- is for excited. That’s how I feel waiting for the festival
    E- is for excited. Yes I put it twice but I am really excited
    R- is for relieved. That is how I will feel if I win the pass

  103. Lisa July 16, 2013 at 12:45 pm #

    Yes yes yes please! If I won these it would make me so happy! Love this event.

  104. Jessica July 16, 2013 at 12:53 pm #

    Love coming down from Seattle for this every year with a group of friends! Best brewfest in the northwest!!

  105. Jeremy July 16, 2013 at 1:07 pm #

    I would love to attend because I went on Saturday last year and it was PACKED! Hoping to actually get to try some of the better beers this year by going on a weekday.

  106. Diana July 16, 2013 at 1:10 pm #

    Because I have been frequenting many of the original and local breweries since the mid to late 1980’s and have made this festival an annual event to try new brews and catch up with all my friends for many years now!

    It’s the one of the greatest things about our wonderful city and state, what more needs to be said!!

  107. Lady Zig July 16, 2013 at 1:14 pm #

    There are way too many reasons to list here so I will stick with this one. Being able to try so many different beers in one place is amazing.

  108. Ben July 16, 2013 at 1:17 pm #

    Every year my wife and I along with two friends attend this brewfest. I look forward to it all year long as the location and the selection of beers are always the best.

  109. A. Wangler July 16, 2013 at 1:20 pm #

    I want to win a package to enjoy great beer because I missed last year’s! Missed out big, so I want to make sure this year is a blast.

  110. Lily July 16, 2013 at 1:26 pm #

    I would love to win because I use to be one of those “ew beer is disgusting” type of girl…. It all changed when I went to beer fest one year!

  111. Lynde July 16, 2013 at 1:37 pm #

    I’d like to attend this year because I am a busy mom with a crazy toddler that would love to sit in the sun and enjoy some wonderful Oregon beer with friends and no kids!!

  112. Josh July 16, 2013 at 2:02 pm #

    I really hope to win the glass and tokens, I truly need it. Right now I’m doing a double major at OSU for Horticulture and Food Science(Fermentation). So every dollar I have goes to school and just trying to pay for food and rent. I need a vacation from school and interning for the weekend. Everyone enjoy a nice frosty beverage!!!!

  113. Keri July 16, 2013 at 2:03 pm #

    My dad and I have gone every year for the last five years. We start off with good intentions about taking copious notes and then it starts getting ridiculous. Always fun to look back at the booklet the next day and see the craziness unfold!

  114. Michelle Vargas July 16, 2013 at 2:06 pm #

    I love beer AND my boyfriend makes some great home brew and we LOVE trying out new beers and supporting other breweries!!

  115. stefanie maki July 16, 2013 at 2:12 pm #

    I should win because I’m from Montana and love coming to this festival.

  116. Audrey July 16, 2013 at 2:14 pm #

    A festival all about beer?? Yes please!

  117. Irma July 16, 2013 at 2:18 pm #

    Please pick me :) I’ve sadly never been to this brew festival but would love to go! It would be a fabulous anniversary weekend for my boyfriend and I. We are celebrating our first year, and we both love beer =D

  118. Jorge July 16, 2013 at 2:23 pm #

    I love to win and go would be nice but I live in Illinois and I cant go :( enjoy everyone have fun and even if I don’t live in Oregon anymore I continued reading my PDX Pipleline emails

  119. jmattnapier July 16, 2013 at 2:24 pm #

    I could spend my birthday alone and poor, or I could spend it at the beerfest meeting potential friends and socializing like the healthy young man I should be. My life is in your hands.

  120. Emily July 16, 2013 at 2:26 pm #

    Why I should get the giveaway tickets? Well, there is only 1 reason why ANYONE should get tickets…because they love beer. And trust me, I L.O.V.E.!!!!!! beer. I will bring my “no-beer-left-behind” attitude!

  121. Dan July 16, 2013 at 2:27 pm #

    Beer.

  122. Amy July 16, 2013 at 2:30 pm #

    Last year was my first time being able to attend the Oregon Brewers Festival, and I had the absolute best time. I love supporting Oregon and Portland events in particular. I would love to win this package and experience this festival again!

  123. Blake Kanegae July 16, 2013 at 2:48 pm #

    I have never been to this festival and would like to go!!!

  124. Stacey July 16, 2013 at 2:48 pm #

    cant wait for another OBF!

  125. Amanda July 16, 2013 at 3:15 pm #

    We go to brewfest as a group every year, it’s become a family event and I’d love for us to have a little extra money toward the total admission. I have my list of beers printed with the beers I want to try highlighted. I’m going whether it’s free or not, but I’d love the boost!

  126. Dave July 16, 2013 at 3:28 pm #

    Hey, so I’m heading out to Newport, OR on Sunday the 28th to ride my bike down the coast of OR and CA to San Francisco. I’m gonna need a bunch of carbs for this 650 mile ride, so this package would be perfect for loading up. Would be nice to save a bit of money on the front end of the trip so I have enough for the a$$ end. :)

  127. Juliana July 16, 2013 at 3:35 pm #

    Oregon beer is really great and festivals are always fun so I would love to attend.

  128. Anna July 16, 2013 at 3:45 pm #

    Every year, like clockwork, the countdown begins – month by month, three friends and I count down the months until that glorious last weekend of July. We can’t wait to pile in the car, hit the 5 south from Seattle and trek down to PDX for this – the beer festival that IS our summer! We have been going for many years and nothing – not heat, horrible traffic or ridiculous gas prices – will detour us from reaching our yearly beer mecca – what could make this year’s trek that much more epic? Winning this package!

  129. Carly July 16, 2013 at 3:47 pm #

    I’m kind of a big deal.

  130. Ivan July 16, 2013 at 4:05 pm #

    Pick Me – I Love everything beer!

  131. Donna July 16, 2013 at 4:37 pm #

    Planning on going regardless, so may as well try to go for free!! This is our favorite summer festival. Cheers and good luck everyone!

  132. Zach Paredes July 16, 2013 at 4:40 pm #

    I am homeless. My favorite is beer. I like hurricanes, earthquakes, and dog bites. My name is Zach. I am 24 years old. Male

  133. jacqi ko July 16, 2013 at 5:06 pm #

    it would mean everything to me to celebrate my 1-year anniversary of moving to this beautiful city with my best friend of 12 years! her & her husband are coming all the way up from san diego to portland for the first time. i want their visit to be as magical as my first year here! if free beer is as close as i can get, then i’ll take it.

    to sweeten the deal, i will trade you 100 unicorns & a drawing of your choice.

  134. Josh July 16, 2013 at 5:22 pm #

    Never been before. I think it would be great to get in for free!

  135. Laurel July 16, 2013 at 5:24 pm #

    Best summer beer festival hands down!

  136. Joan July 16, 2013 at 5:32 pm #

    Stumptown? We should be called Sudstown!

  137. lauren July 16, 2013 at 6:26 pm #

    Choose me because I can handle my beer and don’t throw up

  138. Cheryle July 16, 2013 at 6:47 pm #

    I have an amazing son and d-i-l and would love to win and treat them to the beer festival

  139. Kyle Genin July 16, 2013 at 6:49 pm #

    Last year was my first time attending this AWESOME event. I have been planning for the past 11.5 months to attend again this summer. This is a new tradition which happens to fall around my birthday. Happy Birthday to me :)

  140. Abraham Martinez July 16, 2013 at 7:28 pm #

    I’d like to attend because the beer will quench my thirst on a sunny day

  141. Rachel Lomedico July 16, 2013 at 8:03 pm #

    Beer is delicious! Plus, I am going with my friend during his birthday weekend, and free beer would be the best thing ever!

  142. Dan July 16, 2013 at 8:15 pm #

    We are moving to the south waterfront neighborhood on 7/27 and need to attend to get our Oregon Craft beer fix before moving day!

  143. Pam July 16, 2013 at 8:21 pm #

    I want to attend because I’ve wanted to go since I got to Portland a few years ago but have had to work or been put on military orders. This year I can finally go & this win would help so much, not to mention make my partner & I very happy :)

  144. Shane July 16, 2013 at 8:28 pm #

    I would like to bring my mom for her birthday ! She has went into remission from lung cancer !!!!!

  145. Kelsey July 16, 2013 at 8:28 pm #

    I would love to go on wed, thurs, fri, sat, and sun so the beer package would definitely help me afford my bad habits! I had such a blast last year!

  146. Jake G July 16, 2013 at 8:29 pm #

    My wife and I would like to attend this year’s Brewfest for the forth straight year in a row. I met my wife four years ago during Brewfest. The next year I proposed to her in the “Berried Alive” beer line and its been our yearly anniversary event ever since. Did I mention I also love the BREWFEST almost as much as my wife?

  147. Brittany July 16, 2013 at 8:33 pm #

    Why do I want to go? I love beer, I love Oregon, and I don’t have enough disposable income to justify going without this opportunity! Thanks, pdxpipeline! :)

  148. radcore....britney July 16, 2013 at 8:35 pm #

    So pretty much I rock, no one loves good tasting beer like I do. Brewers fest is my fav because I like beer and I brew beer and if I get the package I can taste LOTS of beers so I can decide what the next beer I shall make is. HOLLA at to girrrl. :-)

  149. jamie stewart July 16, 2013 at 8:41 pm #

    Because my girlfrirnd doesnt drink beer. So, she said i coild go without her, please, this doesnt happen often.

  150. Jasmin S July 16, 2013 at 8:42 pm #

    I went last year and had a blast! I would love to go again this year. Free is totally in my budget (:

  152. Heather July 16, 2013 at 9:08 pm #

    Its my last year in my 20s and want to go out with a bang into my 30th year!!

  153. Mel July 16, 2013 at 10:39 pm #

    Is it ironic to anyone else that beer and love have the same number of letters? I’d love to attend to simply share my love of beer with friends.

  154. Maranda July 16, 2013 at 10:50 pm #

    I just moved to Oregon in March and have recently discovered I actually love beer! Turns out I just needed to drink some good stuff, I would love to go and discover new varieties!

  155. Angie July 17, 2013 at 12:40 am #

    I had pneumonia and missed the festival last year. I miss it so much and a free pass would help tremendously. Thanks for the opportunity!

  156. Matt July 17, 2013 at 12:56 am #

    I’d like to take my Dad to the festival.

  157. Mandy July 17, 2013 at 1:08 am #

    This would be my first beer festival! Also, my boyfriend’s 21st birthday is coming up, I’d love to take him to celebrate! Thanks!

  159. Faith July 17, 2013 at 6:28 am #

    I would like to go to the brewers fest to experience all Oregon has to give. I just moved back to the area after being gone about a decade & I enjoy trying new beers from Oregon & would love to get the opportunity to try more! Thanks!

  160. Bre July 17, 2013 at 6:38 am #

    Because my husband and I could really use a night out…we’ve got twin 7 year olds and an 11 year old and would love to get out and relax with some fantastic beers!

  161. Kristen July 17, 2013 at 8:11 am #

    Sun + Beer + Friends + Oregon Brewers Festival = Pure Awesomeness!!!

  162. Doug C July 17, 2013 at 8:18 am #

    Why do I want to win? Because I plan to propose to my girlfriend at the fest as that is where we met 4 years ago. She doesn’t know it yet and saving some money now will go a long way towards our wedding

  163. Ryan July 17, 2013 at 9:25 am #

    I’ve gone to brew feat every year since I was 21, and to get a chance to win the cool new glad swear sounds AWESOME. When I got back from the Middle East brew feat was one of the most awesome experiences I had all summer – and I try to relive that feeling each summer. Being on the hops!!

  168. Nels July 17, 2013 at 1:14 pm #

    I’ve been promoting Oregon beer since I was old enough to have one and even worked in the industry. Appreciating the art of making good beer has been a lifelong passion of mine and I’d love to share it with a couple of friends this year. Cheers!

  169. Joshua Glassman July 17, 2013 at 1:15 pm #

    I want a package of beer!

  170. Matt July 17, 2013 at 1:41 pm #

  173. Max Woodcock July 17, 2013 at 2:59 pm #

    I am new to portland and came up here specifically for the beer since it is one of my passions. However, i don’t have many friends and this would be a great way to both immerse myself in the portland beer scene, as well as meet some new people. I would really appreciate the opportunity to go. Thank you for considering me.

  174. David Kowal July 17, 2013 at 3:03 pm #

    I’d love to go, because every year I’ve gone has been better than the last. Amazing beers, great food, and you get to see a large amount of people in Portland having the best time of their lives!

  175. Janeth Hernández July 17, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

  183. Cheryl C. July 17, 2013 at 6:52 pm #

    Brewfest is the best! Pick me pick me! I am taking the bus there and have childcare arranged so I won’t need to parent afterwards!

  184. Emily July 17, 2013 at 7:33 pm #

    I would like to attend because I am a (broke) recent nursing school graduate who would like to drop all my ambitions of nursing for a weekend, and let go all of my inhibitions to be a beer connoisseur.

  185. Ashley Ingram July 17, 2013 at 9:10 pm #

    My fiancé really wants to go to this event and his birthday is the 27th it would be a nice birthday surprise and a nice event for me to attend as well.

BUT I’m heading back out for a long weekend vacation and to show my brother around the city, he’s never been. Scoring some tickets to this would be MONEY, I’m trying to show him the best time possible. Plus we friggen’ love beer!

    Hello,
    This is one of Portland’s best summer events. Being on the waterfront, beer, friends, sun, what more could you possibly need? Would love to be able to go and drink ALL the sours in the double token tent :-D

  198. Curt July 18, 2013 at 9:16 am #

  208. Carla July 18, 2013 at 10:47 am #

    I’m gonna drink $250 worth of CRAFT BEER!

  209. Derek July 18, 2013 at 11:14 am #

    I was unable to attend last year since i lived 2500 miles away and broke. I saved all my penbes and finally I moved to Portland last December to end the long distance part of my current relationship. Ever since my first visit to Portland almost 2 years ago I have truly fallen in love with beer, not that blue can light stuff I had been wrongfully drinking for so long. My now fiancé and I enjoy hitting up the local breweries and being able to have our first time to the festival an experience like this would be the icing on the cake

  210. Jeremy July 18, 2013 at 11:35 am #

    I would love this package. Last year the opening day my brother had bought my plane ticket to move to san Diego… so i missed my festival i complained all year to him.

    I’m back. I just moved and don’t have much money.. but trying to take my friend who’s birthday Is just before it and is having a kid real soon and can’t afford it. I won’t Miss it this year… this would just Be a major help. Please pdx pipeline. Help us out in our time of need!!

  211. Ashley Swank July 18, 2013 at 11:37 am #

    It’s my husbands birthday and I would love to treat him to the best beer in Portland!

  212. Bryna July 18, 2013 at 11:40 am #

    This will be my first year attending! Can’t wait! 250$ would only sweeten the deal in the most perfect way! :D

  213. Nancy Guyer July 18, 2013 at 12:00 pm #

    I would absolutely love to win tickets to this Portland event. I have heard that this is one of Portland’s best events, but have never had the opportunity like this one to attend. Please pick me, a 60 year old Social Work student in her senior year of hard work and dedication. I need some self-care and this could be it!

  214. Ben July 18, 2013 at 12:04 pm #

    I would like to attend the brewfest because I have many fond memories of attending it in the past. A couple years ago I decided to attend the festival. While walking around I saw a lovely lady sitting in the sun drinking a beer. Was it a typical girl beer, you ask?? No, she was drinking the darkest beer that she could find that day. When I saw her there I knew she was the one for me. I stopped and said hello. We had a great conversation over many beers that day. So, if you choose me, my wife and I will attend once again, and make many more memories to look back on in the future.

  215. Todd B July 18, 2013 at 12:10 pm #

    I would like to win because I will be bringing my best friend (his first time to Oregon) who was to be married tomorrow until the bride called off the wedding. I told him that I would take him to the Brew Fest instead, and I would love to give him free craft beer.

  216. Keith July 18, 2013 at 12:12 pm #

    I live just a few minutes away from the waterfront and go to this festival every year with my friends. This year, a few of them may not come for financial reasons, so it’d be nice to surprise them with a free mug and some tokens!

    BEER is FOOD & I’m starvibg

  219. Kenneth Schmidt July 18, 2013 at 12:14 pm #

    BEER.

  220. Shaun Stewart July 18, 2013 at 12:43 pm #

    Why I should win:
    Never been to the Brewers Festival.
    Don’t get to go to Portland as often as I’d like.
    I return to work this coming Friday and won’t receive a paycheck until after the festival has ended.
    Had back surgery in May, missed out on the first half of Summer.

    And I love beer.

  221. amber July 18, 2013 at 12:52 pm #

    I’d attend the beer festival this year during my pregnancy because i love the sun and i’d love to see my husbands face light up at all the different types of beer being brewed as well as different ways to brew beer because he wants to learn to brew his own beer

  222. Kelly July 18, 2013 at 12:57 pm #

    did i copy & paste this? yes
    did i hopefully help my fellow contest winners smile? yes! (hopefully)
    i will do much more crowd smile-inducing if I am granted the passes!!!

    Like lot’s of Oregonians I’m a transplant from our louder, angrier and crowded neighbor down south…California. Before I moved to the Portland area I had no idea it was the beer Mecca. I used to drink piss beer in Orange County and thought Heineken was the cream of the crop. I learned quickly how much I was missing out on by drinking shit beer…4 years after moving to Oregon oh how things have changed. I am a beer freak and love the art of microbrews. I am so proud and happy to live here, we’re lucky to be here for so many reasons but mostly THE BEER!!!! I’d love to win this prize since I have yet to win anything on pdx pipeline and would truly appreciate this one. Thanks!!

  224. Denise July 18, 2013 at 1:06 pm #

    I’ve never been and I love beer!

  225. Russell July 18, 2013 at 1:07 pm #

    This is long shot, but please help this beer lover out and I swear I will have a great time!

  226. Dave Flinn July 18, 2013 at 1:13 pm #

    I have never been and am new to PDX. It sounds like it might be Beer:30 awesomeness.

  227. al July 18, 2013 at 1:18 pm #

    I’ve been wanting to go to a beer festival for ages

  228. Ashley Melton July 18, 2013 at 1:33 pm #

    Just moved to Portland and I am a Bartender and think this would be a great way to brush up on the many, many brews Portland has to offer.

  229. Monte July 18, 2013 at 1:39 pm #

    This is a Portland tradition, and a way to celebrate the amazing brews that come from our state. The NW is known for top notch beer and it’s great to be able to taste some of the best all in one place. It’s a large event that I always run into my greatest and even long lost friends. No better way to catch some rays, catch up with old friends and test your beer palate!

    Thanks PDX Pipeline!

  230. Joe July 18, 2013 at 1:59 pm #

    Please… My favorite festival of the beer …er… YEAR

  232. Jenny July 18, 2013 at 2:32 pm #

    Yes!

  233. Anna July 18, 2013 at 2:32 pm #

    My husband has been working his unemployed butt off remodeling our house and really deserves to do one of his favorite things: shop! He loves the market but the house project is draining our finances so we haven’t been able to afford to buy anything lately! I would love to win this for him!

    • Anna July 18, 2013 at 2:34 pm #

      oops, clearly this response was cut and pasted from my contest entry to the Saturday market gift card. Guilty! Well he also loves Beer and trying to new things, and he would LOVE some time off from building our house to attend this festival. Free is really the only price we can afford!

  234. Mary July 18, 2013 at 2:33 pm #

    My boyfriend and I brew beer at home (ok, he brews and I help sample) and it’s so fun heading to these types of festivals and trying out new varieties to get ideas for what to brew next!

  235. max July 18, 2013 at 2:35 pm #

    cheers to beers! this will be beyond a blast…dont forget to leave your keys and take a cab!!

  236. Annie July 18, 2013 at 2:35 pm #

    I want to go!!!!

  237. Tracy July 18, 2013 at 2:36 pm #

    Hello Luv,
    It would be just lovely to win beer in the best beer city in the these United States.
    Thanks ever so,

  238. Brian T July 18, 2013 at 2:36 pm #

    I’ve lived in the Portland area for 2 years and I have not yet been to this festival. I really want to surprise my fiance with tickets. Thank you.

  239. Roya July 18, 2013 at 2:36 pm #

    It’s the best weekend of the year! I would love to win tickets!

  240. brooke lyn July 18, 2013 at 2:38 pm #

    i would like to drink beer.

  241. Tyler July 18, 2013 at 2:38 pm #

    BEER ME! Please?

  242. Steven July 18, 2013 at 2:39 pm #

    winning tickets would be great! Would love to get a chance to really take my time and sample some good beers this year.

  243. rhonda July 18, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    Last time I went to one of these I fell flat on my face before I started drinking. I need a boost to make this one my comeback. haha

  244. Christina Archambault July 18, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    Beer Me!! I love the brewfest! I look forward to this every year! This is my favorite event in Portland!

  245. Jen July 18, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    I love drinking beer while enjoying the beautiful view of Portland.

  246. Tonez July 18, 2013 at 2:44 pm #

    This would be an AWESOME win!!! What a great opportunity to bring our out of town guests to enjoy what the PNW has to offer for Beers…

  247. Katy July 18, 2013 at 2:46 pm #

    I’d love to win because I LOVE beer! And it would be a great way to celebrate my birthday!!!

  248. Jamie July 18, 2013 at 2:46 pm #

    Brews. Portland. Best day ever? Yes, please!

  249. Evan July 18, 2013 at 2:48 pm #

    I neeeeed the package because I am a yearly attendant of the OBF and this will enable me to enjoy quite a few more beers! Doooo it!

  250. Jeffrey July 18, 2013 at 2:49 pm #

    I love to taste the best beers around and enjoy them on the waterfront!

  251. Sam July 18, 2013 at 2:50 pm #

    Always look forward to this festival. Also, always try to save my leftover tokens from the last year, I can never remember where I left them. One of these years I will find my treasure trove and drink like a king. Can you help me out this year?

  252. Kari July 18, 2013 at 2:51 pm #

    As a Portlander I absolutely live for local brews! We are usually camping this time of year so we rarely get to make it out to brewfest! This year we are camping later in the Summer. I would love to be able to surprise my boyfriend with free tasters!!

  253. Michael July 18, 2013 at 2:51 pm #

    Free beer tastes better.

  254. Deena July 18, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

    I don’t think I have missed a summer brewfest since I moved to Portland. I even came the year I was pregnant as my husband and In-laws’ d.d. This year we are taking off two days of work so we can double our fun. Can’t wait!

  255. lisa pardini July 18, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

    my sn turned 21 yesterday. This would be a great way to introduce him to good beer

  256. Allie July 18, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

    I’m already working hard as a volunteer at this event. I deserve to play hard, too!!! ;)

  257. Joe M. July 18, 2013 at 2:57 pm #

    MMMMMMMM beeer me please!!!!

  258. Christopher July 18, 2013 at 2:59 pm #

    Why would I like to attend? Because I’ve never been yet!! I’ve been to the Hood River beer festival and I need to see if this one is as much better as I’ve heard! :)

  259. Jennifer N July 18, 2013 at 2:59 pm #

    I have never been to the Oregon Brewers Festival. This is my first summer living in Portland. I have volunteered at the Organic Beer festival and tried many ciders at Cider Summit. I would LOVE to win and experience my first (of possibly many more) Oregon Brewers Festivals!

  260. John July 18, 2013 at 3:00 pm #

    A. I love PDX Pipeline
    B. I love beer.
    C. My best friend just moved here and has never been and I would love to take him to the Greatest Beer Festival in the World!!!

  261. Elizabeth July 18, 2013 at 3:01 pm #

    My fiance and I would love to go to the beer festival to learn more about international hidden gems of beer.

  262. joe July 18, 2013 at 3:02 pm #

    I need a beer!

  263. Wallace July 18, 2013 at 3:03 pm #

    My bachelor party is the same weekend and this would be an epic way to celebrate my last days of bachelorhood!

  264. Cory Shird July 18, 2013 at 3:04 pm #

    BEER ME

  265. Aaron July 18, 2013 at 3:12 pm #

    What better way to better and already great tradition than to win a beer package!

  266. Vinnie July 18, 2013 at 3:18 pm #

    I’ve never been to this best fest before, always wanted to go. If I won a package that would be great.

  267. Kristin July 18, 2013 at 3:19 pm #

    We just moved to Portland and have friends visiting from England that weekend… can’t think of a better way to show our friends what Portland is all about!!

  268. Claire July 18, 2013 at 3:26 pm #

    Um duh, who wouldn’t want this???

  269. Jaimee July 18, 2013 at 3:30 pm #

    I would like to go as this would be the PERFECT gift to give my husband for his birthday, I don’t know anyone who loves beer as much as he does!

  270. Matthew July 18, 2013 at 3:31 pm #

    Beer. It’s what’s for dinner. And lunch. And, hopefully next week.

  271. Liz July 18, 2013 at 3:34 pm #

    Oh yes please.

  272. Anthony July 18, 2013 at 3:35 pm #

    This would be the perfect antidote to my girlfriend being out of the country. Lots of beer on a sunny day in a park. I’m frothing at the mouth already…

  273. Gary July 18, 2013 at 3:44 pm #

    On July 24th, my amazingly cool wife and I will be celebrating our 20th anniversery. We are flying in from Atlanta that day, leaving our three daughters with my parents, and staying in a condo 3 blocks north of the fest. Yes – we planned it that way. This will be our first vacation alone together in 16 years (since kid #1).

    We land at PDX at noon but can’t get into the condo until 4:00 that day. PLEASE – give us somewhere to hang out, suitcases and all, until we can get in to the rental.

    It would be a great first day in Portland as we stumble and bumble to the condo late afternoon. We are staying a week – no cars. Just bikes and public transit. So we are ready to taste as much as we can.

    We considered about 537 places to spend our 200th anniversery. Portland won.

  274. Allie July 18, 2013 at 3:49 pm #

    Hi! I just moved to Portland (1.5 weeks ago) and I want to experience all things Portland! I want to meet cool people and drink delicious beer :)

  275. Kyle July 18, 2013 at 3:49 pm #

    I want to win, because I love good beer! Not the lets-get-drunk-and-stupid beer. The sip and refresh on a crisp taste beer. I am beer enthusiast so Oregon Beerfest is like my homeland.

  276. Brian July 18, 2013 at 3:54 pm #

    82 beer choices in Waterfront Park during a Portland summer – sounds perfect! I want to take my cousins who introduced me to this 6 years ago.

  277. Mikey B July 18, 2013 at 3:57 pm #

    This is the highlight of the summer for me every year. It just gets better and better with every passing year.

  278. Harry July 18, 2013 at 3:58 pm #

    In the words of Homer Simpson, “mmmm….beer”

  279. Greg July 18, 2013 at 4:02 pm #

    This is the biggie every year!!! Don’t miss the fun, or your driveway on the way home.

  280. Emily July 18, 2013 at 4:04 pm #

    Friend is coming to town that week, would love for us to be able to attend!

  281. Allie July 18, 2013 at 4:09 pm #

    Yay! Beer! This sounds like a lot of fun! :)

  282. Penny July 18, 2013 at 4:13 pm #

    This is my favorite event of the summer!!! Thanks for the chance to win PDX Pipeline!!! You rock!!

  283. Phil July 18, 2013 at 4:15 pm #

    I would like a big delicious beer.

  284. Jade July 18, 2013 at 4:22 pm #

    I’ve never been to a beer festival and I just recently moved to Portland. I love beer and since Portland is the beer capital of the United States, there couldn’t be a more perfect induction to the culture of Portland. The job search has been difficult here and I can’t afford to go unless I win tickets somehow. Thank you PDXPipeline for this opportunity! :)

  285. Jade July 18, 2013 at 4:22 pm #

  287. Dave May July 18, 2013 at 4:38 pm #

    Beer, beer, beer, beer, beer, beer!

  288. Schuyler July 18, 2013 at 4:39 pm #

    Born and raised in Portland, I have never been. I hear great things. Would love to get my taste on and show my friends a good time!

  289. Krystle July 18, 2013 at 4:49 pm #

    My fiancé and I have always enjoyed going to all of the beer festivals in Portland. This year it falls at a great time for us as I am the maid of honor in my best friends wedding the weekend before. So this would be a great time for us to unwind from all of the stress and drink some tasty local brews!

  290. Tina July 18, 2013 at 5:00 pm #

    i love beer!

  291. Leon July 18, 2013 at 5:01 pm #

    perfect weather for drinking beers in the park

  292. Eric July 18, 2013 at 5:02 pm #

    A. beer makes me feel fuzzy inside… and that’s good
    B. Portland has kick ass beer… that’s good.
    C. A+B= why I wanna go

  293. jason July 18, 2013 at 5:02 pm #

    perfect way to spend an afternoon

  294. Jeannette July 18, 2013 at 5:12 pm #

    Putting it simply, I LOVE beer! More specifically, I LOVE craft beer! I would be a fool, a fool I tell you, to not enter this contest to attend a Festival devoted to such a tasty treat.

  295. amanda July 18, 2013 at 5:13 pm #

    My brother is visiting from San Diego and I’d love to show him what Portland’s all about!

  296. Samantha Rohrich July 18, 2013 at 5:15 pm #

    I want to win so I can attend the Oregon Brewer’s festival with my boyfriend. While studying at the University of Oregon we both fell in love which each other and Oregon Craft beer! One of our first vacations together was to Bend, OR to visit all the wonderful breweries there. We love spending time together trying new beers and have even tried home brewing together. We’d love to visit the festival and try even more delicious brews! :)

  297. LISA July 18, 2013 at 5:17 pm #

    My mom is visiting from Colorado, and it would be great to show her why OR beats out CO when it comes to it’s finely crafted beers! =)

  298. stacy July 18, 2013 at 5:41 pm #

    I want to go because I heart beer…especially when many different beers are in one place and are accompanied by random cheersing and thousands of my closest friends!

  299. Megan Z July 18, 2013 at 5:42 pm #

    I love beer. I love festivals. I love beer festivals. I love people. I love the sun.

  300. Apathy Ales July 18, 2013 at 5:42 pm #

    Dude… nuff said.

  301. Marty Anderson July 18, 2013 at 5:48 pm #

    So you say there’s a chance!

  302. JD July 18, 2013 at 5:50 pm #

    They already let you in for free so winning one of the packages would make the souvenir glass and tokens free as well…creating the perfect trifecta!

  303. christy berg July 18, 2013 at 5:51 pm #

    would love to take my husband to this since we did not get to celebrate our anniversary this year

  304. Liz July 18, 2013 at 5:56 pm #

    We love beer, pdx, this fest, and free stuff!

  305. Lizbeth July 18, 2013 at 6:06 pm #

    I recently moved from Anchorage, AK to Portland for opportunities exactly like this one! I fell in love with this city at first sip and went from visiting in May to moving in June. I want to win so that I can experience my first Portland Brewfest the way it should be experienced!!

  306. Jason Eshuis July 18, 2013 at 6:11 pm #

    I’d like one! Please!?!

  307. Alex July 18, 2013 at 6:28 pm #

    because it would be lovely

  308. Chris July 18, 2013 at 7:22 pm #

    I’m new in town and like local brews. I’d love to go.

  309. Sarah July 18, 2013 at 7:41 pm #

    This would be a great event for our friends from Vancouver, BC to attend with us during their visit!

  310. Aaron Bartels July 18, 2013 at 7:44 pm #

    Choose me and I might give you a cut of the winnings, whoever you are, you gorgeous person. I live for beer and all its manifestations. I love writing about and will rave about wining this to my widely read public.

  311. Jasmine July 18, 2013 at 8:21 pm #

    Beer, beer, beer…Makes you pee clear!!! What fun…

  312. Shaun July 18, 2013 at 8:41 pm #

    My girlfriend and my first Portland experience was here! Love it!

  313. Andy montes July 18, 2013 at 9:21 pm #

    I don’t want to break and streak and this year my student loans are kicking my butt..

  314. Colin July 18, 2013 at 9:37 pm #

    I work in an office full of british people, and would love to show them what real beer tastes like.

  315. Julie July 18, 2013 at 10:01 pm #

    Beer makes me very happy. I’m crossing my fingers!

  316. katie July 18, 2013 at 10:15 pm #

    I love beer and I’l already be staying near Waterfront Park all weekend, so it would be perfect if I won

  317. Larry Ullman July 18, 2013 at 10:31 pm #

    Wow, beer, sun, the roar of the crowd and more beer…this is the best of summer in Portland .

  318. jimbobber July 18, 2013 at 10:37 pm #

    I’d like to win these tickets so I can get wasted for free!

  319. panda July 18, 2013 at 10:39 pm #

    oh this sounds like heaven

  320. Tamara Sanderson July 18, 2013 at 10:39 pm #

    My husband and I are celebrating our 13th anniversary and are headed to the wineries :) my husband would much prefer beer and I just saw the brew fest is happening the same week we are heading down. This year my husband has started home brewing and has created some awesome brews. We have hops growing in our backyard and have toured many breweries in the Seattle area. I would LOVE to get tickets for him!!!

  321. kelly July 18, 2013 at 10:48 pm #

    <3 beer

  322. TiffanyO July 18, 2013 at 11:06 pm #

    Oregon+Brewers+Festival – need I say more?

  323. Jodee July 19, 2013 at 12:12 am #

    I actually like some beers now because of beer festivals!

  324. Megan Schaffer July 19, 2013 at 2:29 am #

    I would like to go because I have been here in Portland my whole life (30 years) and I have yet to attend this festival. I am a beer drinker and would enjoy tasting all the drink kinds off beer they will have there. Plus to meet even more of the awesome people that Portland has. I would enjoy a fun kids free time that I’ve been needing.

  325. [email protected] July 19, 2013 at 3:28 am #

    let’s see, why, when given the opportunity for fREE beer, would i like to attend this festival? um, let me think…could it be, um…wait for it… fREE beer??!

  326. Its Jake! July 19, 2013 at 4:09 am #

    I thought about making up some sob story to win over your hearts and make you choose me for the beer package, but I’ll be honest. I just really love beer. And, well, I’m broke. Having 36 tokens to spend on numerous glasses of golden, bubbly, liquid bread deliciousness would make me one happy man!

  327. Lynda Elmore July 19, 2013 at 5:50 am #

    This sounds like so much fun! Pick me!

  328. Jessie July 19, 2013 at 6:32 am #

    I want to win these tickets so I can a) go for free, b) take a friend for free, c) use the money I would’ve spent on something frivolous, d) be excited about winning something, e) drink way more than I would’ve if I had to pay, and f) get a clean glass unlike the one I bought off a homeless guy for $2 last year

  329. Michael Grover July 19, 2013 at 6:39 am #

    I would like to attend the OBF because it’s a Portland tradition, and I love beer!

  330. Pam July 19, 2013 at 7:02 am #

    Because the only thing better than beer is FREE BEER!

  331. Kara Castillo July 19, 2013 at 7:12 am #

    Anyone would love the opportunity to win this amazing package – and if we are all being honest, 99% of the postees will attend no matter what – it’s a legendary event! When you miss the event, it’s like missing Waterfront’s birthday or something! The opportunity to stand in line with strangers to come out as friends, cheering thru the crowds, finding the most badass tee to wear to provoke comments… Again, legendary.

  332. Rose July 19, 2013 at 7:32 am #

    This will be my first Beer Fest and winning tickets would be great.Wish it would have been this weekend it was my BIRTHDAY (7-18) Only lived in PDX for 2 1/2 years and love all these event and finding PDXpipeline is the best.

  333. Coral July 19, 2013 at 8:16 am #

    I would love to win! I would make the most of every singe delicous sip of beer and share the joy with my friend who just moved here. Cheers!

  334. Andrea July 19, 2013 at 9:05 am #

    I’ve never been before and would love to go with my husband! Woohoo! Beer!!
    PS – PDX Pipeline is the best. My schedule is crazy and I would never find all of these fun events myself!

  335. Antonieta July 19, 2013 at 9:14 am #

    I love beer! Can’t wait for this event to happen, would love to go with this awesome package give away!

  336. Vanessa July 19, 2013 at 9:24 am #

    I’ve never been to Oregon Brewfest and would love to try it out this year! What better way than to go for free!

  337. Theo Erde-Wollheim July 19, 2013 at 9:50 am #

    It’s plain and simple, it’s not summer in Portland without OBF. it’s an opportunity to get together with friends and explore what’s exciting in beer

  338. Amy July 19, 2013 at 10:10 am #

    Seriously who wouldn’t want to win this? This is like the best thing you have ever given away!

  339. Tara July 19, 2013 at 11:03 am #

    I am a native Portlander, and have never been to this event. Would love to win this package and check it out!

  340. Sarah July 19, 2013 at 11:16 am #

    I love attending because its great to be able to try beers you’d normally never order at a brew pub or buy a six pack of.

  341. Kelly July 19, 2013 at 11:33 am #

    I am a true home-grown beer-lovin’ Oregonian. I appreciate all that Oregon has to offer, especially the brew scene! I would love to attend again (I have the past 3 years) and would love to come on the first day so I don’t miss any of the specialty beers like last year. Please please please!!!

  342. lisa July 19, 2013 at 11:39 am #

    I love beer. I love PDX Pipeline. Oh hell, I love Julian too. Pick me! I’m the most appreciative beer lover in Puddletown.

  343. Jeremy Brill July 19, 2013 at 11:50 am #

    There are so many beers I have not tried yet!

  344. Jessie July 19, 2013 at 11:51 am #

    This festival is always fun! Which tent will be better this year? Can’t wait to find out!

  345. Boomer July 19, 2013 at 11:56 am #

    This is a Beer Lovers Valhalla! Oh the beers!!

  346. Eric B July 19, 2013 at 12:23 pm #

    Home visiting from the east coast where I constantly rep Oregon beer. I have consistently been out of town during brewfest. Not this year!

  347. Jenn Lawrence July 19, 2013 at 12:35 pm #

    I have worked this event, but never really attended. Make my day Pipeline PDX, make my month, make my year!

  348. Scott Worthington July 19, 2013 at 1:23 pm #

    being born and raised here, I come by my beer snobbery honestly, so why wouldn’t I want to be in the middle of beer nirvana! it would be my pleasure representing Portland at the festival.

  349. Ted July 19, 2013 at 1:43 pm #

    I <3 Beer

  350. Claire July 19, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

    I am dying to go, but it’s not in the budget this year. Have had so many great times in the past. Please let me win!

  351. Claire July 19, 2013 at 2:56 pm #

    I want to go so badly! Unfortunately it’s not in the budget this year. This mom of 3 would love an afternoon out with friends and beer. Help make it happen!

  352. Crystle Brewster July 19, 2013 at 3:30 pm #

    Last year was the first time I have been able to go to the Brewfest because I have Celiac’s disease and cannot have regular beer. Last year they started serving gluten free beer so I was very excited and went with my brother. There I met one of my brother’s friends and have been together since! We would like to make it a tradition and celebrate the first time we met!

  353. sabrina July 19, 2013 at 4:00 pm #

    This is my favorite fest!

  354. christy July 19, 2013 at 4:18 pm #

    woohoo!

  355. Carl July 19, 2013 at 4:30 pm #

    How great could it be to have FREE beer :)

  356. Mary Johnson July 19, 2013 at 5:34 pm #

    Because what’s better than craft beer from your home state? FREE craft beer from your home state, of course!

  357. Jessica July 19, 2013 at 6:02 pm #

    The Oregon Brewers Fest is like beer Mecca for beer nerds like my boyfriend and me. It would be fantastic to get to talk IBUs and mouthfeel with other beer nerds over some samples from amazing brewers.

  358. Ryan July 19, 2013 at 6:21 pm #

    I like beer, therefore, I’m fully qualified to be a great pick!

  359. Kali July 19, 2013 at 6:25 pm #

    Oregon beer + a visiting Atlanta brewer = a happy tourist. Please let me make his tastebuds HOPPY!

  360. Cody Covey July 19, 2013 at 6:30 pm #

    I deserve to win because I took Wednesday off work to kick off OBF! Our plan is to drive my boat to downtown, dock up and walk to OBF. Looking forward to beating the crowds and enjoy some delicious IBU filled Brews. Keep Portland BEERED!

  361. Alexander Phan July 19, 2013 at 6:41 pm #

    I think I should be chosen to win for several reasons. 1. I love beer. 2. I think I would be a great advocate for the event and the city of Portland. (Have volunteered in the past for this event) 3. It would guarantee that I and my friends would have a great time (because honestly if I hoarded it by myself I would be drunk) 4. My name is Alexander and one of your winners should be an Alexander. 5. I think this is a really cool contest idea and finally 6. PDX Pipeline is AWESOME!!!

  362. terry July 19, 2013 at 6:59 pm #

    i mist fathers day i wood love to take my dad two the avent for him

  363. Chris Zales July 19, 2013 at 7:51 pm #

    Besides it being a tradition; you cannot pass up great beer and the awesome atmosphere on the waterfront in beautiful downtown..

  364. Hanah B July 19, 2013 at 8:12 pm #

    I would absolutely LOVE to win these tickets!! It would be an amazing experience! I love beer and spending time outside in the warm and gorgeous summer of Portland. This opportunity is great, and I would be honored to win this contest of free tickets to the Portland brewfest!

    Thank you!!

  365. Erik July 19, 2013 at 8:50 pm #

    I would like this package because beer is good for you and I like beer!

  366. Chris July 19, 2013 at 8:53 pm #

    This is the beer festival to end all beer festivals.

  367. Missy July 19, 2013 at 9:11 pm #

    I want to win this because this is my first summer in Portland, and I’ve always been an avid supporter of local breweries. This event sounds amazing!!

  368. Ekaterina Guild July 20, 2013 at 12:10 am #

    Went with my boyfriend couple years ago. I’ve been dying to go this year. It was a blast! Great beer selection and people watching too

  369. Christie July 20, 2013 at 12:34 am #

    My first visit to Portland happen to land on a Brewers Festival weekend?! It’s meant to be!

  370. Leonard Mendoza July 20, 2013 at 1:10 am #

    I would love to enjoy ALL of the beers available this year. Last year I tried a new beer every day of the month of July (Oregon craft beer month) and this is by far the best beer festival one could ask for in this glorious month

  371. Raymond July 20, 2013 at 6:28 am #

    Been going for 5 straight years now, with the same group of friends they travel from all parts of America to come back here every July. It would be amazing if we were rewarded for are loyalty to the OBF and for the love of craft beer all around.

  372. Raymond July 20, 2013 at 6:30 am #

    We have been going to the OBF for five straight years now I have friends come from all parts of the country in July just for this event it would be amazing if our loyalty for the OBF was rewarded and our love of craft beer in general!

  373. Rebecca July 20, 2013 at 7:01 am #

    Beer Becky would like to take family coming from out of state to attend this for there first time, it’s the best event in Portland to attend each year.

  374. Matt W. July 20, 2013 at 7:02 am #

    I moved to Seattle a year ago and miss Portland’s legendary beer scene! I will be in town to visit friends and watch the Timbers match, and this would be a great way to experience what makes Oregon’s beer scene so special.

  375. GR July 20, 2013 at 7:44 am #

    I am made of beer, so i have to go to this festival to be in my natural habitat. Plus, if they go short, i can replenish their stock.

  376. Katie Oglesby July 20, 2013 at 9:20 am #

    My father went to brewfest every year, however he will not be able to attend this year because he passed away on Father’s Day. I would love to go to honor him, and because I love beer!

  377. Ashley July 20, 2013 at 10:10 am #

    I want to win so I can take my husband whose been on military duty for the lady two weeks at fort Lewis and we love beer!

  378. Mike H July 20, 2013 at 11:18 am #

    My first summer in Portland. Would love to top it off at the beer festival!

  379. Curtis July 20, 2013 at 12:18 pm #

    I recently started home brewing my own beer. I love craft beer so much, that I had to start making my own. This would be a great way to try a large variety of different beers to help inspire my next beer. I’ve recently fallen under some hard times, and can’t afford to buy a tasting glass/tickets. Please pick me, and help out an aspiring brewer. Prost!

  380. Zachary Freeman (@freepdx) July 20, 2013 at 12:58 pm #

    Because its always beer-thirty in Oregon and there’s no better place for it than Oregon Brewer’s festival in Portland’s waterfront park! Can’t wait!

  381. Scott July 20, 2013 at 1:19 pm #

    Sounds like fun.would like so tokens.

  382. Michael July 20, 2013 at 1:21 pm #

    I love beer and I love this festival! I spend way too much money on it every year and now, with 3 kids, it’d be great to win the tickets/tokens and keep that money in the bank. Don’t do it for me. Do it for my wife’s sanity!

  383. Jason Keisling July 20, 2013 at 1:29 pm #

    It’s not my birthday. It’s not an anniversary. I didn’t just get a promotion. Etc.

    Basically I have no good reason why I want to win, I just really like beer.

  384. Meagan July 20, 2013 at 1:49 pm #

    I would love to win! My husband and I love craft beers and we try to attend the festival every year. I would love to be able to surprise him with this prize!

  385. Martha Swanson July 20, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

    My husband and I just for married 2 weeks ago and we would LOVE to go! We have never been to brew fest!

  386. Bryce July 20, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

    I’d love to get some help to attend the festival this year. I’m an aspiring home brewer and student- so money is a bit tight. This event could really open up possibilities and ideas for my career and above all else, who doesn’t love beer? Free beer at that!

  387. Mellie July 20, 2013 at 3:32 pm #

    I want to propose to my partner at the beer festival, where we met 10 years ago! We attend every year as our anniversary present to each other. This would be a great start to what is going to be a great day!

  388. Beth July 20, 2013 at 5:34 pm #

    THIS WOULD BE PERFECT! My partner and I are getting married in September so we’ve been on a 6-week detox in preparation. We planned this no-salt, no-sugar, no-gluten, no-Caffine, no-alcohol purge so that our last day would fall on the same day as opening day of OBF and we could celebrate our 5th year at the festival for his birthday. Being able to celebrate for free would be utter perfection!

  389. David July 20, 2013 at 6:57 pm #

    I would like to attend brew fest but it is currently not in my budget get even a little bit of tickets I would really appreciate it.

  390. Amy July 20, 2013 at 7:30 pm #

    I would love to win one of these packages.
    I went to college in Forest Grove, and just moved back to Portland 4 months ago.
    A friend of mine from LA also moved up here and the two of us have been kind of exploring Portland together. This sounds like an amazing event both of us would really enjoy.

  391. James July 20, 2013 at 9:38 pm #

    So many beers to try. So little time.

  392. Jim Mc July 20, 2013 at 11:52 pm #

    Summertime = Beertime. Love this event! Great way to check out many of Oregon’s finest!

  393. Nate July 20, 2013 at 11:58 pm #

    I love beer and love to brew beer. I am always looking to get inspiration for brewing and there is no better palce then the oregon brewfest.

  394. Brittany July 21, 2013 at 1:44 am #

    I would love to win so I could take my hard working boyfriend and have beer :)

  395. Kathryn July 21, 2013 at 3:01 am #

    Every year I volunteer at this event. I would love the chance to actually attend.

  396. Patricia July 21, 2013 at 9:17 am #

    I want to win for 2 reasons:
    1) I have gone every year since I moved here in 2007 but last July I was 7 months pregnant

    2) my best friend moves here on July 26th from Ohio and this would be the most awesome and epic welcome to Oregon present ever!!!

  397. JH July 21, 2013 at 9:28 am #

    Because they don’t take Oregon Trail cards…

  398. Christian July 21, 2013 at 10:08 am #

    I love beer, I love Oregon, I love PDX Pipeline and I love to win!

    Here’s to hoping I win one of the packages and get to this attend this amazing Portland tradition. Cheers!

  399. Leonard July 21, 2013 at 10:22 am #

    Never miss BrewersFest

  400. Grant July 21, 2013 at 12:54 pm #

    My brother will be in town from Minnesota, he says they have better beer there. I would like to prove him wrong — 82 times.

    Thanks!

  401. Sam July 21, 2013 at 1:32 pm #

    It’s my friends birthday on Saturday and it would be AMAZING to do this!

  402. Harrison Hess July 21, 2013 at 2:39 pm #

  403. Nathan Helland July 21, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

    Please pick me. I never win.

  404. Julie July 21, 2013 at 4:00 pm #

    My husband and I LOVE beer and haven’t missed a brewer’s festival yet! We look forward every year to sampling some of the best beers from around the country. Hop City!!!

  405. Brandon July 21, 2013 at 5:03 pm #

    I’m a huge fan of craft beers, a home brewer, and a yearly attendee of the OBF! I hope I win the package but I’m still gonna go multiple days if I don’t!

  406. Carmen July 21, 2013 at 5:09 pm #

    I just recently received my bachelors degree so I’m a graduate in debt. This would be my very first brew fest ever, so it would be such a great gift to win as the start to my life.

  407. Brandon July 21, 2013 at 5:56 pm #

    Craft brewing fan, homebrewer, and OBF fanatic! Pick me to help me celebrate the birth of my son!

  408. Tamara July 21, 2013 at 6:08 pm #

  409. Wade H. July 21, 2013 at 6:25 pm #

    BEER BEER BEER BEER BEER BEER BEER!!! I’ve never made it to the Oregon Brewer’s Festival and I hear its the best one in the state! I love Oregon beer and would love to take a few out of town friends to teach them about Beervana!

  410. Sade Phillips July 21, 2013 at 7:51 pm #

    I’ve been going to “Brewfest” since I first 21 and haven’t missed one since. I want to go this year because it is my favorite Portland thing to do all year. Nothing is better than being around fellow Oregonians, sharing a beer and a “Whooooo!”

  411. Amy Trinh July 21, 2013 at 8:06 pm #

    I’ve heard about this fest from many of my friends and now that I’ve moved to Oregon, I can now go! It would be great to get free beer, especially from such a great fest!

  412. Erin Dickerson July 21, 2013 at 8:09 pm #

    Finally breaking away from the Columbia Cup Hydroplane races after 25+ years of attending to make new memories! Would love the Oregon Beer Fest to be our new go-to end-of-July event!!! Oh, and my birthday is the 26th and I need beer to drown my sorrows as I get closer to 40!!!! :( BTW—I love beer!

    Pick me!

  413. Patrick Gault July 21, 2013 at 9:11 pm #

    I have gone every year since I was 21. The festival is what I look forward every year in the summer. I have friends coming to Portland from all across the US and the best part about the brew fest is friends and great tasting beer.

  414. milissa thomas July 21, 2013 at 11:02 pm #

    I am just living in portland for the summer for an internship and this is what I’ve been looking forward to all summer. When people told me what I needed to do while in portland this was on the top of their list. My dad also brews his own beer so I’ve been a beer lover for quite some time!

  415. ben July 21, 2013 at 11:10 pm #

    I am the best at eating sandwiches! Also, Brewfest is freakin’ awesome!

  416. Allie July 21, 2013 at 11:20 pm #

    Seriously, my email is “WeNeedMoreBeer”! PDX Pipeline, you could grant me this wish with passes to brewfest

  417. Brian Dunn July 22, 2013 at 12:47 am #

    I just downloaded the pic pipeline app so what i say is give it to the new guy! I like what I see so far…you need to get more local businesses in board and it could really fly! Best of luck and keep on keeping on with yourselves! Oh yeah….one more time…..PICK THIS GUY! Cheers!

  418. Bryan July 22, 2013 at 7:13 am #

    Friends are in from Brazil and California and they are thirty for our famous local flavor.

  419. Leigh A July 22, 2013 at 7:24 am #

    Thanks for chance to win! We love the Brewers Fest!

  420. Alli M July 22, 2013 at 10:56 am #

    I love Brewfest! Before I moved up here, my brother told me the only thing I wasn’t allowed to miss was Brewfest. You wouldn’t let me miss it, would you?! :)

  421. Mike Ransier July 22, 2013 at 11:23 am #

    Mmmmmm….beeeerrrrrr!!!

  422. Shannon Rembiszewski July 22, 2013 at 11:55 am #

    By chance, my husband and I will be in Portland this weekend to celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary…we LOVE Beer festivals and would absolutely LOVE the chance to attend one in Portland. What a fun anniversary adventure! We would LOVE the tickets! Thanks bunches!! =)

  423. Joel July 22, 2013 at 12:41 pm #

    We haven’t missed one yet!

  424. Melissa Pope July 22, 2013 at 12:47 pm #

    Just graduated college, my boyfriend’s birthday is on the 25th, I’ve lived in Oregon my whole life, so what better way to celebrate all that than having a good time with friends/family and drinking some delicious summertime brews for free!

  425. Deana July 22, 2013 at 1:08 pm #

    My Sweetheart’s middle name is Beers. (Its a family name!) AND… he loves them!! What could be more perfect?! Really, if you think about it, he was born (OK, named) to attend this event!

  426. Karen H July 22, 2013 at 1:20 pm #

    OBF=Summer in PDX!

  427. SHERYL SEAGLE July 22, 2013 at 3:32 pm #

  428. Amelia Santiago July 22, 2013 at 8:12 pm #

    I love beer and I would be quite the hero if I won these tickets!

  429. laura July 22, 2013 at 8:45 pm #

    My hubby, sister (from out of town ) and I go every year it would be fun to treat them to a free pass =)

  430. Grafton July 23, 2013 at 11:24 am #

    Um because not only am I awesome, but beer is Awesome! And local crafted beer is even more awesome!

  431. Amanda Panda July 23, 2013 at 12:28 pm #

    Why I would like to attend:
    1. To Hell or High Watermelon beer. Yummmmm…
    2. The music lineup is insanely, especially good this year. All of my favorite local bands will be there!
    3. There’s no better summer fun in Portland than standing in line while emptying your cup for the next round. Ahhh… OBF! :-)

  432. Andrew July 23, 2013 at 12:37 pm #

    Beautiful weather, venue along the water, excellent music and a plethora of good beers to try. I would love to win a couple of beer mugs and some tasting tokens. I skipped out on going to the Gorge this weekend because the music lineup for this year’s OBF is outstanding.

  433. Katie July 23, 2013 at 2:13 pm #

    love all the beer that is there every year!

  434. CJ July 24, 2013 at 5:02 pm #

    I would like to win the beer package because I’ve lived in the Portland area my whole life and never been. I work all week and won’t be able to afford to go otherwise.

  435. Kristin July 24, 2013 at 9:07 pm #

    So I am late to the game, but I SO want to go to this. I am a mama of a 3 1/2 year old and 4 month old. My children are beautiful, wonderful, and they are my life. That being said, mama needs to get out every once in a while! I have friends going and would LOVE to have this be my first big adult event since baby #2 was born. I deserve a beer!

  436. Greg July 25, 2013 at 4:25 pm #

    I’m going either way, but I will bring a guest for the Root Beer Garden for sure if I win tickets.

  437. Josh July 26, 2013 at 12:22 pm #

    I’m broke!!! I love craft beer!!! I will truly appreciate this experience.

  438. Steve July 26, 2013 at 2:57 pm #
