Pioneer Courthouse Square
701 SW 6th Avenue, Portland, OR 97204

The 19th annual Holiday Ale Festival will take place Dec. 3 through Dec. 7 at Pioneer Courthouse Square, located at 701 SW Sixth Ave. in the heart of downtown Portland.

The popular event will feature at least four-dozen big, bold ales designed to fend off the cold chill of a long winter night. From Belgians, barleywines and CDAs to winter warmers, porters and stouts, these beers have either been crafted specifically for the event or are hard-to-fine vintages, underscoring the event’s reputation as one of finest gathering of winter beers anywhere in the nation.

Event hours are 11am to 10pm Wednesday through Saturday, and 11am to 5pm Sunday. To avoid the lengthy lines that often accompany beer festivals, the recommended days for attendance are Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. The Holiday Ale Festival is for ages 21 and over.

Despite being held outdoors during one of the coldest months of the year, more than 15,000 festival attendees stay warm and dry over the five-day festival under clear-topped tents that cover the venue. Gas heaters create a cozy ambiance beneath the boughs of the region’s largest decorated Christmas tree. In addition to beer tasting, the festival also features meet the brewer events, a root beer garden, food vendors, beer pairings with cheese, event merchandise and a coat and bag check that raises funds for the Children’s Cancer Association.

What makes this festival standout from other similar events is the beer selection: the festival works with every brewery involved to make sure they send a beer that has either been made or blended specifically for the event, or is a rare or vintage beer that isn’t commonly tapped in the state, underscoring the event’s reputation as one of finest gathering of winter beers anywhere in the nation. These top tier breweries are supported by some of the nation’s most passionate beer appreciators who have the good fortune to be able to celebrate all their favorite breweries in one location.

This year’s participating breweries are 10 Barrel, 13 Virtues, 2 Towns, Alameda, Baerlic, Base Camp, Bear Republic, Burnside, Cascade, Coalition, Deluxe, Deschutes, Dick’s, Dogfish Head, Drakes, Eel River, Elysian, Ex Novo, Fearless, Feckin, Finnriver, Fort George, Gigantic, Gilgamesh, Golden Valley, Hopworks, Kells, Lagunitas, Lompoc, Mazama, McMenamins Edgefield, Migration, Natian, Nectar Creek Honeywine, New Belgium, Ninkasi, No-Li, Oakshire, Old Town, Payette, Portland, Rock Bottom, Rogue, Rusty Truck, Santiam, Seven Brides, Sixpoint, Slanted Rock, Stickmen, Stone, Vertigo, Viking Braggot and Widmer.

    Lines on Ale (1848), by Edgar Allen Poe (1809-1849)

    Fill with mingled cream and amber,
    I will drain that glass again.
    Such hilarious visions clamber
    Through the chamber of my brain.
    Quaintest thoughts, queerest fancies
    Come to life and fade away.
    What care I how time advances;
    I am drinking ale today.

  2. Roya November 26, 2014 at 9:42 am #

    I love going every year!

  3. JoAnn November 26, 2014 at 9:51 am #

    As the late, great Michael Jackson said, “It don’t matter if you’re black or white”. Pretty sure beer was included in that statement. PDX Pipeline, please give me tickets and I promise I will show equal love to all colors of beer!

  4. Katy November 26, 2014 at 9:53 am #

    Never been, love beer!

  5. Michael Mahlum November 26, 2014 at 10:39 am #

    A holiday song for all (sung in the tune of Auld Lang Syne): More beer, more beer, more beer, more beer, more beer, more beer, more beer, more beer, more beer, more beer.

  6. Grant November 26, 2014 at 11:49 am #

    This is the only big beer fest I haven’t been to in Portland so it would be great to go! Sounds like a super way to fight of this winter chill.

  7. Sarah November 26, 2014 at 11:50 am #

    Exciting! A lot of those beers look so delicious and fun! Hope I get picked!

  8. Derek Harguth November 26, 2014 at 12:09 pm #

    I’d like to attend because I’ve tried to go every year, and something ALWAYS comes up! Working, not enough money, unavailable friends, underage family, and the list goes on. I’ve always wanted to make this a part of our Christmas tradition, as my girlfriend and I both love beer, we love Portland, and we love Christmas. The opportunity to finally go to this beer festival would be AMAZING! CHEERS!

  9. Blake November 26, 2014 at 1:07 pm #

    I want this year to be my first of many!!!

  10. Sara November 26, 2014 at 1:28 pm #

    If you pick me, I solemnly swear to PAY IT FORWARD and brighten at least 3 other people’s lives this Holiday Season!!

    Plus I will love you forever.

  11. Matt November 26, 2014 at 1:59 pm #

    I would love to win because this festival combines so much of what I love about Portland!

    I adore the event’s festive spirit, the unbeatable location, unique beers, good camaraderie with friends and fellow beer geeks, and solid food selection! There is no better way to enjoy the holiday season than with this unbeatable beer festival!

  12. Yume November 26, 2014 at 3:25 pm #

    I missed this last year, but it was a ton of fun the last time I went. I’d love to go again!

  13. Louis November 26, 2014 at 4:57 pm #

    This sounds like so much fun! I haven’t been able to make it in previous years, so this would be great! Thank you!

  14. Brooke November 26, 2014 at 4:58 pm #

    This would be so much fun for me and my boyfriend! We couldn’t make it last year but would love to go, thank you!

  15. Rose November 26, 2014 at 6:28 pm #

    We’ve just moved to Portland – for the beer. My husband would go nuts for this festival.

  16. Karen Gillis November 26, 2014 at 7:08 pm #

    Best beer festival of the year! I lived away for 7 years, always tried to time a trip back home to coincide with Xmas beer. Would love to score a pair of these pricey tix…

  17. Kristen November 26, 2014 at 7:18 pm #

    Oregon has more breweries than anywhere else in the country. As an enormous fan of craft brews, this would be a wonderful opportunity to step out of the box a little and try tasty offerings from breweries here and all over the nation. I would really love to win tickets to the fest!

  18. Elizabeth November 26, 2014 at 7:24 pm #

    I’d love to attend! It’s one of only a couple Portland beerfests I’ve never had the chance to go to.

  19. Rachel November 26, 2014 at 7:32 pm #

    As one of Santa’s helpers, it is imperative that I win tickets to this Holiday Ale Fest. I know for a fact that most of the PDX Pipeline staff is on the naughty list, and, well, I will put in a good word for you with the Big Guy and see if I can get you guys more than just your usual lump of coal.

  20. Bo Shettle November 26, 2014 at 7:43 pm #

    To keep Portland weird, let’s keep Portland Beered.

  24. John November 26, 2014 at 8:54 pm #

    Best beer fest of the year!

  25. MK November 26, 2014 at 8:54 pm #

    Mmmm….winter beers. Definitely think that the winter flavors need more exploring…by me.

    :)

  41. Claire November 26, 2014 at 11:14 pm #

    This is one of the few Portland Brew Fests I haven’t been to yet. Warm me up Pipeline!

  42. Meghan November 26, 2014 at 11:19 pm #

    Please don’t hate me! I know the recent mass migration to Portland must drive the locals crazy, but Ive always wanted to live here and after barely surviving my life that was endless Wisconsin winter, I saw the next one around the corner and decided it was time. So-in August I packed my Corolla with the few things I wasn’t willing to live without, and my husband, and drove 40 hours straight to get here. Im here and ready to try everything! Beer might be the only thing wisco can offer that rival PDX*, but I think it’s important that we investigate. You know, science.

    *besides cheese… Still warm because it was just made an hour ago and brought straight to the farmers market. Sorry, Tillamook… pretty good, but not the same.

  43. Kim November 26, 2014 at 11:49 pm #

    It’s our first year here, and we want to go to everything. Well, everything fun. And especially everything we can walk to and stumble home and then blog about later. Ale yes, we need these tickets.

  44. Kevin Waring November 26, 2014 at 11:54 pm #

    Better for everyone if I’m inside enjoying rather than standing outside the tent windows sobbing.

  45. Alex November 27, 2014 at 2:30 am #

    I’d love to bring my Dad out from La Grande for this!

  46. Wendy November 27, 2014 at 3:05 am #
