BiKETOBEERFEST is taking place at Hopworks Urban Brewery, located at 2944 SE Powell Blvd. and runs from 2 to 10 p.m. HUB is encouraging everyone to ride their bikes to the event and will have a special offer for bike riders.

  16. Claire September 18, 2013 at 3:36 pm #

    New to the area and would love to check out this festival and meet some new people who also enjoy bikes and brews!

  17. Jesse September 18, 2013 at 5:45 pm #

    Id love to take my wife this weekend. She didn’t like beer when we moved to Portland 4 months ago and has since changed. Hopworks had a big part in that. Its nice to have that in common in beervana. We love hopworks and need something to do this weekend.

  18. David September 18, 2013 at 6:59 pm #

    My wife and I are super broke and cant afford beer. HELP!

  19. Lisa September 18, 2013 at 7:25 pm #

    I go to biketobeerfest every year. For me, it signals the beginning of fall. Biking home, I enjoy the cool fall breezes and remember the warm rides of summer. Please pick me and can’t afford to pay to go this year.

  20. courtney September 18, 2013 at 7:28 pm #

    What’s not to love? Hopworks is one of my favorite breweries for many reasons, and this is one of them!

  21. Abe September 18, 2013 at 7:59 pm #

    I HOP(e) this WORKS out for me, I would love to bike to some beer!

  22. Frank Brislawn September 18, 2013 at 8:14 pm #

    I went to this two years ago and had a blast, I made friends with an old man in a poncho and saw a little girl try and toss the Huffy (the crowd went nuts). If I win tickets I will dress up in my golden toga and wear a real laurel head band.

  23. Bill W. September 18, 2013 at 8:23 pm #

    Cycling to beer…what’s not to like?

  24. Riley September 18, 2013 at 9:10 pm #

  27. Mitra September 18, 2013 at 10:48 pm #

    I am for sure going and I would love to go for free. The guest taps are going to be a great addition to this awesome event!

  28. Ian Faragher September 19, 2013 at 8:06 am #

    I would take the $40 I’d be saving and fill my tank to grab my bike from
    Corvallis for this! I was able to have some HUB IPA at the OMSI Maker Faire and now I’m craving the rest of their lineup!

  29. Keri September 19, 2013 at 8:20 am #

    I would love to win tickets for my husband. He’s been working tirelessly on our house all summer and now that his unemployment ran out, he took his old job back that he hates, fishing, and just spent the last week working his butt off and didn’t even catch any fish!! He deserves a break!

  41. Eric September 19, 2013 at 2:23 pm #

    Hopworks has disappointed me the last several times I went. So I stopped going. Maybe if I win tix to this event my mind will be swayed!
    Sway on!

  47. Manda September 19, 2013 at 2:48 pm #

    Would LOVE to win this because: we’re trying really really hard to save money, my husband’s a bicycle advocate & mechanic, and we’re Portlanders…it’s called Beervana for a reason!

I’m a craft beer enthusiast and bicycle commuter and from what I have heard, Portland is the best city in the world to bike around and drink amazing beer. I’d love to win the tickets, so you can prove to me that what I have heard is true and so that I can kick-off my PDX experience with a bang!!

  82. Eric September 20, 2013 at 12:13 am #
