The world’s rarest beers are coming to Portland for Brews for New Avenues (BFNA). The nonprofit rare-beer festival boasts the city’s only live auction of unique craft beers and has exclusive beers on tap. New Avenues for Youth’s ambassador board is looking to build on the success of last year’s event, which raised $23,000 for local homeless youth and attracted 500 attendees.

Now in its third year, BFNA is solidifying its reputation as a must-attend event for beer enthusiasts, and breweries throughout Europe, the U.S. and Oregon are lining up to participate and support a great cause. This year’s incredible lineup of live and silent auction items include Hair of the Dog’s Dave, Grote Dorst’s van’t Kasteel, h.ertie’s Trippel, The Lost Abbey’s Isabelle Proximus, and a signed Speedway Stout variant set of six bottles from AleSmith. The full list of beers can be viewed at

Brews for New Avenues attendees will also be able to enjoy more than 40 keg tappings of fantastic craft beers from Cantillon, de Molen, De Struise and Mikkeller alongside domestic favorites including The Commons, Cascade, Deschutes, 10 Barrel, Firestone Walker, Victory and more. Other highlights include the “Wall of Beer” (pay $10, select a mystery bottle), raffles for beer-centric items from local establishments, chocolate stout beer floats, as well as food carts and live music.

    Great! My beer-loving Wisconsin brother is coming into town and this will be right up his alley. I’d love to win those tickets so I can show him how we do beer in Oregon!

    New Avenues for Youth saved my son’s life many years ago. I love these people and the work they do. Although it would be nice to win the tickets, I would probably turn around and spend that and more on the fine beer and food. It’s what we do.
