THIRST Fest 2014, a wine, beer and spirits festival supporting the LGBTQ community through a partnership with the Cascade AIDS Project, offers members of the LGBTQ community, their allies and others the opportunity to taste and compare a wide variety of unique beverages while supporting a good cause.

THIRST Fest 2014 will introduce members of the LGBTQ community to some of the newest alcoholic beverages hitting the glass. The two-day event at Portland’s Tiffany Center will feature beverage and cocktail sampling, cocktail competitions, and a chance for members of the LGBTQ community to influence its own latest trends in mixology. Thirst Fest 2014 was designed and organized in support of Cascade AIDS Project. More than 40 craft distilleries, craft breweries and select wineries will be participating.

Attendees at the event on February 7th and 8th will be able to taste samples, and talk with local and national winemakers, craft distillers and brewers, and watch Portland’s top bartender’s battle for the 1st Annual THIRST Fest Battle of the Bartenders Cup. Local celebrity judges will decide which bartender will reign supreme, and attendees will be able to taste each competitor’s unique creations after they have left the stage. A full service, OLCC licenses liquor outlet will be available to sell distilled spirits at the show, and wine and beer vendors will be able to sell their wares direct to attendees at the event.

* Admission PLUS!
With paid admission, attendees receive 10 free drink tokens. (Additional tokens will be available for purchase.)

    I don’t have plans for the weekend of the Thirst Fest & would love to sample the spirits to decide what I’d like best. Sounds like FUN.!!

    We are allies who would love to help in the naming the newest cocktail concoction. I’ve got some great LGBTQ names in mind!

  13. Mister Graves January 30, 2014 at 8:02 pm #

    Oh, I would get so sloppy I’d probably snap my heel. I love drinking alcohol at the Tiffany. Just the name makes me feel so glamorous.

    Would love to go to this! Sounds like SO much fun!!!

  16. Matt January 31, 2014 at 11:44 am #

    This is great because gay people don’t already have enough problems with alcoholism and they need to be segregated. Sign me up!

  17. Jareb January 31, 2014 at 12:15 pm #

    I’m surprised this is the first annual of such an event…seems right up Portland’s alley! I shall spread the word.

  18. Heather January 31, 2014 at 1:29 pm #

  21. Kat February 1, 2014 at 10:04 am #

    I love volunteering at these sort of events, but it would be awesome to actually be an attendee to this one.

  22. Matt February 1, 2014 at 12:55 pm #

    Because I’m a much better homo when I’m drunk.

  23. Christine February 1, 2014 at 3:58 pm #

  25. Ilesha February 1, 2014 at 7:46 pm #

    Love how I’m leaving comments to win to majority of events that serve booze. Is that wrong of me? haha

  26. MMMichael February 2, 2014 at 9:57 am #

    Drinking for fun while supporting Cascade AIDS Project = AMAZING good time!

    I’m new in town, and this seems like the perfect opportunity to support the community, and make some new friends while sampling the best of the NW. Cheers!

    PS I’ll bring the rhymes.

    There is no truth that alcohol can’t get out of you. Does that make sense? Just try and remember it the next day :-). Would love to go!
