The Handmade Bike & Beer Festival is one of the most exciting festivals in the city of Portland. It is a weekend-long event that draws attention to the renowned bike builders that live in our region, and the craft beer industry that has made Portland the best beer city in the country. This family-friendly festival runs from September 27-28th in our covered, festival event space.

At Hopworks Urban Brewery, our passion for world-class beer and for the visibility of bicycles in our city fueled the creation of the Handmade Bike & Beer Festival. The fest is a mash-up of two of Portland’s favorite fall events – HUB’s Biketobeerfest and the Oregon Bicycle Constructors Association’s (OBCA) Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show.

The festival features 30 custom bike builders and vendors who follow the long tradition of crafting beautiful bikes by hand, craft beer from some of the most exciting breweries in our region, and live local music acts. Activities include the classic “Huffy Huck” bike-throwing competition, New Birth Break Dancers, Flatlanders BMX stunt crew perform and the Tricycle Obstacle Course, a race course that features adult-sized trikes. Visitors will be treated to excellent local food from Taco Pedaler, Ruby Jewel, and the HUB kitchen.

Dance to the tunes of The Israelites, the legendary ska band. We’ll also have some really fun Pacific Northwest bands including There Is No Mountain, Bear Water Band, and Shake Up Bluegrass (previously Left Coast Country).

Full Schedule of Activities

We have enough activity to keep you and your family busy all day! For the full list of activites, click here.

Other Goodies

We’re bringing back the classic “Huffy Huck” bike-throwing competition.  You’ll also be able to watch some amazing dance moves because the New Birth Break Dancers will put on a great show. We’re also brining back the Flatlanders, an awe-inspiring BMX stunt crew. Looking for some new activities? Try the new Tricycle Obstacle Course, a race course that features adult sized trikes.

There will be some awesome food from some of our favorite places in the city. Taco Pedaler will serve up their famous tacos, Ruby Jewel will satisfy your sweet-tooth cravings with their delicious ice cream. If that wasn’t enough, the HUB kitchen will be on-site with a variety of grilled sausages.

  7. Z September 24, 2014 at 8:44 am #

    I’d like to learn why my handmade bike didn’t work. I mean, I drank a lot of beer and used a lot of duct tape.

  8. Grant September 24, 2014 at 9:10 am #

  17. Tracy September 25, 2014 at 10:47 am #

    I’m coming to Stumptown by bike this weekend from the coast- so I won’t take a parking place or clog up your roads. i have a garbage bag and trash grabbers with a plan to spend an hour picking up trash along the Willamette River. Low on cash, big in heart. And it’s my birthday, so I could use a break…


  18. Dana G. September 25, 2014 at 12:01 pm #

    My husband calls his bikes, his ‘mistresses’. If I win him tickets, maybe he will ride me this weekend.

  19. Dirk-Jan Boekee September 25, 2014 at 12:17 pm #

    I would love to go, It’s within biking distance, yay!

  20. Arti Khanna September 25, 2014 at 12:19 pm #

    Yes please!

  21. Mel B September 25, 2014 at 12:49 pm #

    Sounds like such a great time! Drinking beer, riding tricycles and throwing bikes is a winning combination. Kind of like Simon and Garfunkel or Sonny and Cher.

  22. Kathryn September 25, 2014 at 1:27 pm #


  23. Sara September 25, 2014 at 1:28 pm #

    I can build a bike out of straws.

  28. Beth September 25, 2014 at 2:55 pm #

    ERMAHGERD. My husband would think I’m the coolest ever if I presented him with tickets to this. Pick me, pick me!

  29. Fred September 25, 2014 at 2:59 pm #

  35. Eva September 25, 2014 at 3:08 pm #

    It’s near my house. So convenient! I am currently getting perfect attendance in the Bike Commute Challenge. So bikey! I have had no beer yet this week. So thirsty!

  36. Sam September 25, 2014 at 3:09 pm #

    HUB’s pint o’ pretzels is my favorite food on earth. I would love to go to this event to also chuck a Huffy over the mountains, as it was my crappy bike for most of my childhood.

  37. Erik September 25, 2014 at 3:16 pm #

    Count me in.

  38. Christa Arriaga September 25, 2014 at 3:22 pm #

    + The Israelites, I want to skank while chugging a DOA!

  39. James September 25, 2014 at 3:27 pm #

    It’s hard to text on my bike while I’m holding this beer in my other hand but you should pick me ACAROHFUC

  40. Mary Blue September 25, 2014 at 3:30 pm #

    Even though I’ve lived in the Portland area for 13 years, I never really got the bike-gene. I got the beer-gene for sure, just not the bike one… My fiance wants to bike from Beaverton to HUB on Saturday. Winning these tickets would sure be added motivation to excite me for that long haul bike ride…!! Please pick me! :)

  41. Tonya September 25, 2014 at 3:34 pm #

    This would make a nice get away after a day at work.

  42. Scott September 25, 2014 at 3:37 pm #

    Bikes and beer, my favorite past time.

  46. Raychel September 25, 2014 at 4:14 pm #

    Is it a coincidence that there is a festival dedicated to beer and bikes the day that my dad is visiting?! Probably, but some free tickets would make it fate! Wooo!

  47. Gaby September 25, 2014 at 4:26 pm #

    Free booze please!

  48. Mary September 25, 2014 at 4:31 pm #

  55. Stephen September 25, 2014 at 5:06 pm #

    I’m doing the BTA Bike Commute Challenge and riding my ass off to and from work this month. Please help me replenish some lost calories at HUB.

  56. Russ September 25, 2014 at 5:09 pm #

    I grew up riding BMX, and now that I am grown I am an uppity beer snob.

    I wanna go for the beer!

  69. Zach September 25, 2014 at 9:18 pm #

    I regularly make beer by hand and irregularly make bikes by hand. Maybe if I get to go to this, I’ll be better at both.

  70. Natalie September 25, 2014 at 9:30 pm #

    I want to attend this for so many reasons, but probably the best one is because it’s my turn to plan a date and I need to top what he planned for us last time. I’m highly competitive like that. Help me win as the best date-planner ever?

  71. Shelley A. September 25, 2014 at 9:37 pm #

    Hop! Hop! Hop! I must go to this.

  72. Toby September 25, 2014 at 10:57 pm #

  75. Sarah September 26, 2014 at 12:13 am #

    We are celebrating my husband’s birthday this weekend and I would LOVE to take him to the Handmade Bike and Beer Fest. My husband is a bike geek and this event would make him truly happy. It would also score extra birthday points if we win free tickets. What’s better than cheap and fun! If we win, I will also bring birthday cake to share. Bikes, beers, tunes and cake! Oh how sublime!

  76. anna September 26, 2014 at 12:50 am #
