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).
