Pouring 90 different craft beers from around the country – plus beers from New Zealand in the International Tent – the Oregon Brewers Festival is the quintessential celebration of craft beer!

The Oregon Brewers Festival is one of the nation’s longest running and best loved craft beer festivals. Situated on the west bank of the Willamette River, with towering Mt. Hood as a backdrop, it is the ideal venue for anyone who loves craft beer. With a laid back attitude and scores of award-winning beers, the festival reflects the essence of the city of Portland, aka Brewvana.

The Oregon Brewers Festival exists to provide an opportunity to sample and learn about a variety of craft beer styles from across the country. Ninety craft breweries from all parts of the nation offer more than 30 styles of handcrafted brews to 85,000 beer lovers during the five-day event.

The festival’s focus is craft beer, but there’s more than sampling involved. The event features live music, beer-related vendors, beer memorabilia displays, home brewing demonstrations and an assortment of foods from a variety of regions. The Crater Lake Soda Garden offers complimentary handcrafted root beer for minors and designated drivers. Minors are always welcome at the festival when accompanied by a parent.

The Oregon Brewers Festival strongly encourages responsible drinking, and urges patrons to take advantage of TriMet
MAX Light Rail line, located just one block west of the festival on SW Oak Street. Plan your trip at or Go by bus, train or taxi, just don’t drink and drive. Attendees can also take advantage of the onsite Hopworks Bike Corral
where volunteers from the #BC2Baja Bicycle Tour will watch over bikes for free.

    I love the Oregon Brewers Festival. I’ve tried to go each year since I moved to Portland and I’ve only missed one (I was out of town). The beers are excellent and the setting can’t be beat. The place can get crazy crowded so it’s better to go during the day on the weekdays if possible, but it’s worth going either way. Can’t wait for the 22nd!

  2. Christina July 13, 2015 at 1:45 pm #

    I would LOVE to check this out!!! I am usually the wine festival kinda girl, but Oregon has changed that. I have to get out and see what I like, and what’s a better way to do it then THIS!!

  3. Roxy July 13, 2015 at 1:52 pm #

    I LOVE OREGON BEER!!!! What better way to visit downtown Portland then for a Brewfest?!?! :) Sign me up for winning tickets! Thnaks!

  4. Michael (neo) July 13, 2015 at 1:54 pm #

    Cause I want to day drink while I sing ‘everyone acts like a day drinker… Yeaaaahhh’

    I’m also 22 now so Im definitely allowed.

    Plus I’ve never even been to a beer festival and I don’t own a car so you’d be awarding your ticket to a responsible attendee. I’ve got so many reasons omg.

    I don’t have a job but I got a resume and some interviews.

    I just ate shit on a skateboard and landed right on my chiny chin chin… Oh did I say I had interviews for potential jobs to go to.

    Cause I don’t believe in luck.

    I’ve got to be the chosen one.

  5. Kim July 13, 2015 at 1:58 pm #

    This event looks epic. It kicks off on my dad’s 60th birthday, and he will be in town visiting for the week – WE WOULD LOVE TO CHECK THIS OUT! Can’t think of a better scene to be a part of while convincing him that retirement in OR is where it’s at :)

  6. ryan July 13, 2015 at 2:13 pm #

    This is the grand-daddy of beer events, plus, my dad, a longtime home brewer, will be in town, so this just makes sense…

  7. Allison July 13, 2015 at 3:16 pm #

    Last year was great! Would love to attend again. Cheers!

  8. Matt July 13, 2015 at 3:19 pm #

    My wife and I just moved to Portland from Utah where 4% beers are the norm. We have some major catching up to do.

  9. Angela Morales July 13, 2015 at 3:20 pm #

    I would love to win this because: 1) I’ve been in Portland 8 years and have yet to have the chance to attend a beer festival and 2) It’s my birthday month!

  10. Jefferson July 13, 2015 at 3:59 pm #

    Get the brew out of here, brewfest? Count me in please.

  11. John July 13, 2015 at 4:02 pm #

    Have missed this event the last few years and would love to go this year.

  12. Adam Atwood July 13, 2015 at 4:29 pm #

    Its my party and I’ll get drunk and cry if I want to!

  13. Christina July 13, 2015 at 4:31 pm #

    I’ve never been to the brewers’ festival, but I see the souvenir mugs around every year. It looks like fun!

  14. Elizabeth July 13, 2015 at 4:45 pm #

    I’d love to go – it’s one of the few PDX beerfests I haven’t had a chance to experience yet.

  15. Kristin July 13, 2015 at 4:57 pm #

    I would love to take my sister to the festival as she will be visiting from the east coast for her birthday!

  16. Luke Michaels July 13, 2015 at 5:30 pm #

    Oregon Brewers Festival is one of my favorite events of the year. Great beer, great location and a wonderful atmosphere. Looking forward to the 22nd!

  17. Robin July 13, 2015 at 5:43 pm #

    I love going to brewfest!!! It’s always a great time to be with friends and make some new ones. Love all the beer and cheers under the sun. A Portland summer must. Enter me to win tix! Thanks

  18. Philip navarre July 13, 2015 at 5:45 pm #

    Really looking forward to tasting the beers from New Zealand

  19. Andre July 13, 2015 at 6:17 pm #

    I should get the tickets because I will live tweet the whole thing with hilarious commentary. I will interview random strangers, take pictures of things I deem funny and you can see my tweets grow less and less coherent as the day wears on. Will limit percentage of tweets about lines for the bathroom to 10% or less.

  20. rya July 13, 2015 at 6:29 pm #

    I wanna go!

  21. Bryan July 13, 2015 at 8:55 pm #

    I’d love to be the 1 in 85,000 that gets a head start on the festival. Would that make me part of the 1%?

  22. Liberty July 13, 2015 at 9:49 pm #

    Would love tickets!! Have a friend coming to visit …. A beer festival on the water front is always a good time for someone from a small town!

  23. Carl July 13, 2015 at 10:16 pm #

    It’s my first OBF since moving to Portland! I can’t think of a better way to experience all the beer culture and great variety of beer that Oregon has to offer than this festival.

  24. Jordon July 13, 2015 at 11:28 pm #

    Oregon!!! Beer!!! That’s all the reason needed to head to this festival! See y’all there in my bright yellow beer socks ;)

  25. Paul Munyon July 14, 2015 at 5:14 am #

    This has been an annual event that I have been attending for the past 10 years. I always plan my vacation around this event. Look forward to attending this year as well.

  26. Laurel July 14, 2015 at 8:33 am #

    This is an awesome festival, would love to go!

  27. Justine July 14, 2015 at 10:18 am #

    I’d love to get my husband to this event. He loves beer, especially pieters and stouts and Belgium style brew. He has never been to this festival. Thanks for the opportunity.

  28. Jill July 14, 2015 at 10:48 am #

    This is the only weekend of the summer my husband and I make sure we’re in town because Brewfest is THAT awesome. So, we’re going and the tickets are already in our budget.

    I vote you give the free tix to Michael (neo). Kid’s got spunk. And a resume. And he’s trying to get a job. Shoot, you should hire him while you’re at it.

  29. Jess July 14, 2015 at 10:54 am #

    Haven’t been in nearly 20 years, back when it was THE only beer fest. So, yeah, send me again, I’m long overdue!

  30. Kenny Schmidt July 14, 2015 at 11:43 am #

    I wanna go because I’m an alcoholic

  31. Ryan Leavenworth July 14, 2015 at 12:04 pm #

    I want to go because I’ve gone every year since 2007, and want to keep the streak alive!

  32. Elisa l July 14, 2015 at 12:10 pm #

    I’m finally starting to like beer after a friend has moved to Portland and is teaching me. This would be such a great chance to learn more!

  33. Andrea D. July 14, 2015 at 12:35 pm #

    This would make a great 8th year anniversary gift for my other half.

  34. Kay July 14, 2015 at 12:50 pm #

    My mother-in-law will be in town. Nuff said.

  35. Julie July 14, 2015 at 1:01 pm #

    I write a beer blog. I’m learning to brew. I’m so cliche. This would be amazing!

  36. Grant Casey July 14, 2015 at 2:05 pm #

    Sounds awesome! Haven’t been to his fest yet so would be great.

  37. Sarah Casey July 14, 2015 at 2:06 pm #

    Would love to attend this!

  38. Jorge July 14, 2015 at 6:30 pm #

    Been in Portland for a week, love craft beer and hope to become a brewer in the near future! Would love to go and check it out

  39. Kathy July 14, 2015 at 7:20 pm #

    Portland has the most breweries of any city in America. This event is a must for any Portlander (or aspiring Portlander). I must attend.

  40. Georgie July 14, 2015 at 9:06 pm #

    There’s nothing better then fantastic beers, good friends, meeting new friends and Portland.

  41. Paige July 14, 2015 at 9:12 pm #

    I can’t wait for Brewfest this year! It will be my third and what better way to kick start summer than sample tons of brews, collect souvenir glasses and enjoy some of Portland best weather? I can’t think of one better reason to not join in and spread the beer!

  42. Emily July 14, 2015 at 9:24 pm #

    I think I should win because my bf and I try to attend ALL beer related festivals. It gets to be pretty expensive, so having free tickets for this event will free us up to spend more money on all things “beer”!

  43. Jana July 14, 2015 at 10:35 pm #

    I love beer! I would love to win! Thank you!

  44. Jullane July 14, 2015 at 11:01 pm #

    Always down for beer fest. I love me some beer, especially IPA. Sadly missed last year. Would love to make it this year, and I will

  45. Burton reed July 14, 2015 at 11:43 pm #

    I have a busy summer and this is the only festival I’ll be able to attend, would love to go!

  46. Nicole Reed July 14, 2015 at 11:50 pm #

    I’d love to go because my husband & I LOVE beer! We’ve only been to this festival once before & it was so crazy crowded that we were waiting in line for each sample for 20 minutes. We each sampled only 3 or 4 beers before leaving because of this. I’d love to try this fest again!

  47. Perry July 15, 2015 at 7:47 am #

    I go every year! Hopefully there is more spicy beer this year.

  48. Shannon Barber July 15, 2015 at 8:29 am #

    I have been able to enjoy the winter holiday ale festival but have never made it to the summer version. I would love to check it out :-)

  49. Kamil s July 15, 2015 at 8:31 am #

    I would love to try it…it’ll be my first year going.

  50. Ree July 15, 2015 at 8:53 am #

    Oregon has 1/ best beer & 2/ the best people. Then they all come together for a few days :)

  51. Tony C. July 15, 2015 at 9:06 am #

    Looking forward to another great OBF. Such a great beer, friends and atmosphere.

  52. Dustin Brown July 15, 2015 at 9:32 am #

    It would be the perfect way for me and answer some friends to celebrate my birthday! I’ll definitely be there either way!

  53. Dustin Brown July 15, 2015 at 9:32 am #

    It would be the perfect way for me and some of my friends to celebrate my birthday! I’ll definitely be there either way!

  54. Gloria Arango July 15, 2015 at 9:50 am #

    I would love to win this for my husband. Since having a baby we haven’t been able to do anything fun. This is the perfect gift for him and I. Especially with all that beer . Thank you

  55. Kelsey ryan July 15, 2015 at 10:06 am #

    A chance to learn more about beer and how it’s brewed would be awesome! I’d love to win tickets to taste some favorites and some new selections surrounded by good folk. This single mama needs some good in her life, and this would do just the trick!

  56. Marianne July 15, 2015 at 11:54 am #

    Because beer is good!

  57. Chris July 15, 2015 at 12:56 pm #

    This would be my 20th Oregon Brewers Festival! What a way to celebrate!

  58. CC July 15, 2015 at 6:22 pm #

    I want to show my SF Bay Area friends that YES! Moving to PDX was the best thing I’ve done in over 25 years. :)

  59. Jessi July 15, 2015 at 6:29 pm #

    I got my wisdom teeth out this morning and am feeling pretty crummy. But by next week I’ll be ready to jump back in to Portland summer! Plus I have friends from Ireland and Singapore visiting for the week, and would love to show them this as an example of the best our city has to offer.

    Please contribute to my dream of recovering and drinking more than smoothies! :)

  60. James July 15, 2015 at 6:31 pm #

    My wife and I have missed this event the last two years! We will definitely be there this year though!

  61. Valerie July 15, 2015 at 6:35 pm #

    I will be arriving for my VERY FIRST trip to Portland on the 21st and am so looking forward to the Brewfest! I am a caterer and a complete foodie and appreciate great beer, not just for taste but for its craftsmanship. As a chef, I understand that making beer, like cooking, is just as creative. Regardless of whether I win these tix, I will be there. I can’t wait to explore Portland, it’s culture, its natural beauty, it’s food; and, of course, it’s beer!!

  62. Angela Claussen July 15, 2015 at 6:40 pm #

    I am visiting Portland from Iowa and would love to attend the Oregon Brewers Fest as part of my vacation.

  63. Terry Dayton July 15, 2015 at 6:41 pm #

    Look forward to the OBF every summer. I fly in from Spokane and spend the day and back at night. Thanks to MAX making it easier to get to the festival from the airport. Nothing like a great summer day on the waterfront, great crowds, and WONDERFUL BEERS!
    I fly down with friends and meet more there, sharing beers and having a great time. In the past we have volunteered poring beer, but unable to this year due to time constraints.
    Can’t wait!

  64. Jeri July 15, 2015 at 6:41 pm #

    It’s a most amazing event! My son and now daughter in law treated me to my first festival about 6 years ago for my birthday! We had the time of our lives! Since then my husband has joined us every year. My son and daughter in law have had to relocate from Bend to WA due to offices closing here in Bend! Now, my son works in WA while his beautiful wife attends college in Colorado successfully achieving her phD! Oregon Brewfest has become to us a family reunion… We love good beer, all of people, so appreciate all of the volunteers, and love the city of Portland! A win for us would surely be appreciated and be well enjoyed!!!

  65. bri July 15, 2015 at 6:43 pm #

    My sister is flying in from Phoenix just for this festival. Winning would make this that much more fun! Can’t wait to attend!

  66. Nichole July 15, 2015 at 6:49 pm #

    I live in AZ. This is an annual tradition I have to visit my sister in OR and go to the brewfest …and get away from the scorching AZ desert. I haven’t missed a year since she moved 8 years ago. Can’t wait to enjoy the beautiful Portland weather and delicious beers! Would be awesome if I could enjoy it complements of PDX Pipeline! :). See you there!

  67. Rick July 15, 2015 at 6:51 pm #

    I go every year… but won’t be able to sample many beers this year because I’m on a very tight budget right now. :-(

  68. Kathy July 15, 2015 at 6:57 pm #

    Three ladies from Illinois, Iowa and Massachusetts traveling to Portland’s brew fest to celebrate a 50th birthday. We are so excited to explore Oregon and the Brew Fest. See everyone next week!

  69. Jax July 15, 2015 at 7:03 pm #

    OBF is a tradition for me! Celebrated at the Fest six years ago a couple of days before I got married. Great memories. Cheers!

  70. Andrew Holmes July 15, 2015 at 7:19 pm #

    I have not been to the OBF for many years. I would love to be your winner!

  71. Jose Diaz July 15, 2015 at 7:36 pm #

    i have been going to the fest for the last 7 years. These year will be special as I will be attending with my daughter and her boyfriend on opening day. They are visiting from Fairbanks, AK. And planned there vacation so they could attend this year.

  72. Linda July 15, 2015 at 8:25 pm #

    Have Beer Mug hat, will travel !!!

  73. Lauryl July 15, 2015 at 8:35 pm #

    this would be so fun, I mean I have never met a brew I didn’t like :)

  74. Shannon A July 15, 2015 at 8:45 pm #

    We love beer, Portland, and it’s our 9th wedding anniversary! We (a teacher and fire fighter/paramedic) need a well few hours break from our 3 year old twins and 4.5 year!!!

  79. katie July 15, 2015 at 11:03 pm #

    I’ve only been once but had a great time. Beer and Portland how could a girl go wrong for great weekend!

  80. Andrew July 15, 2015 at 11:53 pm #

    This is my first year in Portland and I’d love to attend as a local!

  81. Stacie July 16, 2015 at 12:15 am #

    yes please! I went a few years back, and lets just say it wasn’t pretty. I need an opportunity to redeem myself now that I am a “responsible” adult :P

  82. Brandy July 16, 2015 at 4:28 am #

    Seriously who wouldn’t want the fun, sun, and great beer?!!?!! I can’t wait!!

  83. Patrick Powell July 16, 2015 at 6:49 am #

    This will be my third trip to this festival. Great location and amazing public transportation. I’m from San Diego and we have some excellent beer feasts but you guys put on a top notch festival. Great selection of beers lots of shade and close to Voodoo donuts. Keep up the good work.

  84. Abby July 16, 2015 at 8:37 am #

    Coming all the way from Boston to take in all Portland has to offer. Great way to taste all the yummy brews would be the Oregon brewfest!!

  85. Audrey July 16, 2015 at 8:46 am #

    Sounds cool!

  86. LeAnne July 16, 2015 at 9:46 am #

    OBF is the highlight of July with fantastic Brewers and great tasting beers. Love the variety and opportunity to taste new beverages

  87. Tammy Brewer July 16, 2015 at 10:05 am #

    My last name is Brewer, so naturally, I should be there. I just moved here from Florida and I need to observe what Oregon is famous for.

    If I win… I HAVE to go!!! Please make me drink beer!!!

  88. Russell July 16, 2015 at 10:10 am #

    Friends coming out from Virginia. Help us keep Portland weird and hydrated.

  89. Guy Smith July 16, 2015 at 11:38 am #

    I would love to win tickets to a day of drinking great beers!!!!

  90. Hannah July 16, 2015 at 12:45 pm #

    Oregon beer is my jam! Nothing compares to the hops and pride in Oregon beer. This may be our last summer in portland, so going to OBF for free would be a great send off!

  91. Barbara July 16, 2015 at 1:02 pm #

    I love beer! I have a reason to celebrate and I can think of nothing better than attending this wonderful festival. Help me get my Hops! Please pick me!! :)

  92. Heather July 16, 2015 at 2:11 pm #

    I love OBF! please help me get my beer tasting on.

  93. Patrick July 16, 2015 at 2:19 pm #

    I love beer!

  94. Roger Gill July 16, 2015 at 2:20 pm #

    A classic. Let the craftyness flow FREEly!

  95. Kristy Alberty July 16, 2015 at 2:24 pm #

    Please pick me, or us?

    Actually, my BF got Thursday off to attend the Fest, but because I’m new at my job, I can’t really justify asking for the time off. And, because it’s a long wait for a pour if you arrive after 5pm,
    I thought, well, I guess I’ll just skip it this year.

    What a TREAT it would be instead, to not only attend, but to have 18 token and a cup and I can relax and not worry about how long this will take or how far my budget will take me.

    This is a great event, and I would really love to attend. Hope to hear from you! Cheers! :)

  96. Karen July 16, 2015 at 2:24 pm #

    I’d love to attend brew fest because I love beer! I want to try as much as possible this year and have a great time.

  97. Jeremy L July 16, 2015 at 2:32 pm #

    One of the best festivals of the year, I’d love to go again! I already took Wednesday off work to hit it up, would love some free tickets, too!


  98. Erick July 16, 2015 at 2:37 pm #

    To sample all the beers, obviously.

  99. Kate Christianson July 16, 2015 at 2:39 pm #

    Absolutely love going to the oregon brewfest! Trying out new beers to tell our friends about and find awesome new flavors that we love ourselves!!

  100. Michelle niknabard July 16, 2015 at 2:41 pm #

    My name is Michelle and this is my first year being able to actually attend because I’m now 21. I’ve always wanted to go, seeing it every year from the outside. It’s an important part of Oregons culture and I’d like to partake for the first time my age allows. Please pick me!!

  101. Teresa J. July 16, 2015 at 2:45 pm #


  102. Karen Gillis July 16, 2015 at 2:49 pm #

    Haven’t been for many years, would like free tickets!

  103. Danielle D July 16, 2015 at 2:59 pm #

    After 9 years in Oregon, my dear friend is moving out of state in two weeks. I’d love to treat her to some delicious craft beer at the Oregon Brewers Festival as an appropriate send-off!

  104. Rick July 16, 2015 at 3:00 pm #

    I just moved to Portland, and I have never been to any beer festivals on the west coast. I’ve heard that this is one of the best beer festivals in Oregon, and I want to see how it stacks up to the ones I’ve attended on the east coast.

  105. Anna July 16, 2015 at 3:01 pm #

    I would LOVE to win these tickets for my husband. he has been depressed lately and really wants to attend a beer festival but life keeps getting in the way. Free tickets would make it easy for him to bring a friend so I could stay home with our baby. I don’t even like beer but he likes it enough for the 2 of us! Thank you for the opportunity!

  106. Marissa July 16, 2015 at 3:06 pm #

    Well I’m going regardless, but if I can WIN tickets then that’s even better!

  107. Linda S July 16, 2015 at 3:20 pm #

    my husband loves beer. i can be the driver

  108. katie walker July 16, 2015 at 3:24 pm #

    I REALLY want to go to the Oregon Brewer’s Festival because I loooooove beer!!

  109. Gigi July 16, 2015 at 3:27 pm #

    OBF is the best!! I live within stumbling distance of the festival, would love some tickets!

  110. annette July 16, 2015 at 3:29 pm #

  111. Michael Mann July 16, 2015 at 3:35 pm #

    I would love to attend because this is THE premier beer event of the summer. And The Wave!

    I’ve been wanting to go to OBF for a long time :)

  113. Aurelia July 16, 2015 at 4:23 pm #

    Cheers to good time with Brewers and good beer all on the waterfront! Please pick me!!

  114. Lila July 16, 2015 at 4:27 pm #

    I’m a lightweight and my boyfriend gives me constant flack for it. He has the strongest tolerance of anyone I’ve ever met. I’d like to “treat” him to a day of drinking beer and get him sloshed for a change. Turnabout is fair play!

  115. Tom July 16, 2015 at 4:36 pm #

    I’ve been going since the very first one in 1988. I remember the very first one, it was a cloudy day on Saturday. I’d like to share the event with some friends and my new baby daughter. Obviously, she won’t be drinking, but, maybe one day she will attend on her own!

  116. Ken July 16, 2015 at 4:46 pm #

    I went to the Cider Summit and already have tickets to the OR Berry Festival this weekend, so adding on the OR Brewers Festival will round out my summer of eating and drinking!

  117. Devon July 16, 2015 at 4:57 pm #

    Because beer is civilization.

  118. Vicki D'Elia July 16, 2015 at 5:00 pm #

    Have been coming to Portland fro AZ now for 7 years. Our short trips never coincided with the Brewfest. Now we are retired we invited friends from AZ to come with us to the Brewfest. Spent some time in Germany where I learned to love beer. Hope to win and show our friends a good time!

  119. Ms Wake July 16, 2015 at 5:00 pm #

    I have yet to go to a beer festival (this year)!!

  120. KC July 16, 2015 at 5:08 pm #

    Beer me, baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  121. Steve July 16, 2015 at 5:09 pm #

    Because I am THAT GUY who follows the moving band around, singing, dancing, drinking, cheering!!!

  122. jennie July 16, 2015 at 5:11 pm #

  123. Jenny July 16, 2015 at 5:38 pm #

    Yes please!

  124. kim July 16, 2015 at 5:42 pm #

    My mouth is watering thinking about the gloriousness that awaits! I switched over this year from wine to beer! Haven’t had that many but stout is my favorite so far! I’ll learn so much at your event! Oh boy!

  125. Stephanie July 16, 2015 at 6:24 pm #

    This one happens so close to where I live, and I inevitably get assaulted with the endless temptation of the sounds of the crowd (not to mention the late night drunken spillover when it closes and everyone involved is poured back out into the streets of downtown). It’d be nice to indulge a little, myself, and not just be a listener at the gate.

  126. Luis Herrera July 16, 2015 at 6:48 pm #

    Love beer. What better way to find a new favorite!!! Love to win!!!! Awesome giveaway, good luck all!

  127. lori July 16, 2015 at 7:19 pm #

    Would so love to win tickets!!!

    ***PDX pipeline- Go Ahead….MAKE MY DAY and send me to OBF 2015!!! You couldn’t pick a better LOVER of all things BEER. My LIPS can’t wait to taste all those hand crafted BREWS. Mmmmm…..counting down the days!!! Your the best PDX Pipeline!!

  131. Meag July 16, 2015 at 7:54 pm #

    I am new to Portland… ok, almost a year old, but still looking for new and fun things to do. I love beer, People, and free. Please

  132. Robin July 16, 2015 at 8:23 pm #

    I’ve gone to the NWBF 5 years in a row now; maybe this year I get to go gratis!

  133. Teresa July 16, 2015 at 8:23 pm #

    This is the best time of year!

  134. Anne July 16, 2015 at 8:24 pm #

    I have been living in Portland for years and still have never been to any of these many beer festivals that our great city puts on. Maybe this will be my chance to say “hop hop hooray”.

  135. Michael July 16, 2015 at 8:27 pm #


  136. Cory July 16, 2015 at 8:29 pm #

    Beer me

  137. Gabrielle July 16, 2015 at 8:30 pm #

    I just moved to Portland from a state that has no craft beer, so it would be exciting to get the chance to experience so many different craft beers!

  138. Christine July 16, 2015 at 8:31 pm #

    I’ve never been to a brewer’s festival and would love to go to try some local brews!

  139. Jessica July 16, 2015 at 8:51 pm #

    Wow I cannot wait to go to this. I will have a designated driver!

  140. Dave G. July 16, 2015 at 9:52 pm #

    Please send me, before I start my jail time!

  141. Michael Nelson July 16, 2015 at 10:43 pm #

    Just moved back to portland would love to be able to attend the festival.

  142. Kristi July 16, 2015 at 11:31 pm #

    I’m your gal! Send me to the NWBF! I’ll represent!

  143. Tony July 17, 2015 at 12:06 am #

    My favorite event of the Summer!!

  144. Gary July 17, 2015 at 2:53 am #

    It would be my first time. I need to check out the best Portland offers in the craft brew department!

  145. panda July 17, 2015 at 2:56 am #

    yeah brew!

  146. Richard July 17, 2015 at 7:08 am #

    My girlfriend and I are coming to PDX for five days from Virginia just because we have never been. The festival would give us such a great start on learning all we can about what makes Portland great!

  147. Heather July 17, 2015 at 7:29 am #

    We’re coming from six hours away specifically for The Brewers Festival on Friday, and a concert Saturday…looking forward to a great opportunity to try a ton of delicious beers we don’t get a chance to get our hands on in this po-dunk little town we live in! Long live Beervana!

  148. Bruce July 17, 2015 at 7:31 am #

    Never have been….I’d sure love to go! Sounds like an amazing summer event….

  149. Kirsten July 17, 2015 at 7:51 am #

    I solemnly swear to wear a pretzel necklace and yell every time someone makes a toast, even though it will embarrass anyone I go with, (because they are lamer than I am and don’t understand the awesome totally not douchey camaraderie of OBF).

  150. Toby Kernan July 17, 2015 at 7:54 am #

    Because we are driving all the way over from Idaho to indulge in days of delicious Beervana…Can’t hadly wait!!!

  151. Conrad July 17, 2015 at 8:30 am #

    I am working 3 beer fests this year! I love them!! This one would be great to check out as well. Can never go wrong with craft beer!!!

  152. Lisa July 17, 2015 at 8:46 am #

    Haven’t been able to make it past couple of years, but its such a great time I gotta go this time!

  153. Amanda July 17, 2015 at 9:19 am #

    We went to the festival last year and it was awesome. Hope to win tickets and go again this year!

  154. Caitlyn July 17, 2015 at 9:29 am #

    I went last year with only about an your left and most of the beers were tapped out! Looking forward to getting therror earlier this year. Lots of people aND tons of fun!

  155. Jasmine Rain July 17, 2015 at 9:39 am #

    Oregon spoils us time and time again, and this festival is a testament to keeping up with my aging figure…that and I love a tasty bubbley adult beverage…daily. Truth be told I really need to start writing for beer magazines as there is not a large presence if women writers on beer. I would love to win tickets as I’ve recently been laid off and realistically should not be frivolous with my funds. And I would take the bus and walk, not even bike. *Dook Dook*

  156. Seth francis July 17, 2015 at 9:54 am #

    I’m not as think as you drunk I am
    Pour a beer in my ear to keep me queer
    Raise a glass, shake your ass, and give me all sass
    Hip hip hooray OBF is here!
    Pick me!!

  157. Rebecca July 17, 2015 at 10:19 am #

    Just moved here and super excited to be in a place with a serious brewfest!

  158. Ed July 17, 2015 at 11:03 am #

    The Oregon Brewers Festival ! I just need to hang out with these wonderful people in this wonderful town

  159. Lynn Elsdon July 17, 2015 at 12:09 pm #

    We love BEER at our place and we brag (in a nice way) about Portland beer all the time. We would love to go.

  160. Jeff July 17, 2015 at 12:11 pm #

    I am a cyborg sent back in time from the year 2029 to terminate brain cells with copious amounts of tasty craft beer.

    I would like to attend this event because my mission depends upon it.

  161. Michelle July 17, 2015 at 12:29 pm #

    I have always volunteered so that I could afford to attend this brewfest and the one in the winter. Unfortunately I work many hours at a job the pus very little and no longer have the time to offer. This last year I have gone through a breakup, quitting a job, finding a job, moving, lawsuit, bankruptcy, almost failing out of school, and now I work for so little money that I can’t even buy myself happiness. If you could help me attend something fun like the brewfest, I would really appreciate it. Plus, I can bring my cousin, who is also a long time volunteer. She lost her job this year and can’t afford to attend. I would love to take her.
    Please pick me. I need some positivity in my life.

  162. Mikey B July 17, 2015 at 12:31 pm #

    This THE highlight of the Portland summer season. Cannot wait to get back!

  163. Chris July 17, 2015 at 12:43 pm #

    yumm. nuff said just yum

  164. Tyler July 17, 2015 at 1:12 pm #

    I’d love to win tickets! I have missed this for like 4 years because we’re always out of town. This year, I put it on the calendar so that we made sure to be in town. My wife just got laid off last week so I can’t justify paying to go to this until she finds a job. Putting food on the table for my kids is more important than me drinking beer and having a good time.

  165. Kerrieann July 17, 2015 at 1:59 pm #

    Would love to win tickets to this years OBF! This is the best brew festival that is hosted annually in Portland!

  166. Allie July 17, 2015 at 2:43 pm #

    Well, I am going anyways, but going for free would be so much better!

  167. Renata July 17, 2015 at 3:20 pm #

    Beer is proof that the Gods love us and want us to be happy!

  168. Kirk Heims July 17, 2015 at 5:17 pm #

    I want to (continue to) expand my palette and explore Portland’s front edge of brewers concoctions:) Cheers!

  169. Bobbi Jo July 17, 2015 at 5:58 pm #

    I love craft beer!!! I grew up in ND, where people either drank Bud or Coors, then fell in love with specialty craft beer and microbreweries in Boston. I’m new to Portland and already falling in love with the beer scene here! I would love to be able to attend this event and share the love of specialty beer!

  170. Jenny July 17, 2015 at 7:23 pm #

    I LOVE this festival!! So much wonderful beer, and so much good energy! It’s a blast!

  171. Breana July 18, 2015 at 10:25 am #

    Cold brews in the summer
    River front fun
    IPAs, Lagers, Pales, and Reds shared with all my chums
    Ain’t no sleeping till the kegs run dry
    Won’t let this chance to quench my thirst with some passes to the
    Oregon’s Brewers Festival pass me by. :)

  172. Kelly July 18, 2015 at 11:19 am #

    mmmmmm beer.

  173. Megan L July 18, 2015 at 11:30 am #

    Will be in town for vacation, and it’s my hubby’s first time to Portland – I need to show him all of the amazing beers the area has to offer! I can’t wait!

  174. Ben July 18, 2015 at 2:23 pm #

    Who doesn’t like trying out new beers on a sunny day?

  175. Bing July 18, 2015 at 4:56 pm #

    I would probably have a horrible time so don’t pick me.

    من عاشق آبجو

    I enjoy winning contests and raffles even though I can’t recall the last tie I was blessed with LadyLuck. OBF is a favorite summer event for me and I would love to attend again. I have SERVED many times and will be volunteering again this year. The thought of increasing my token purse and actually winning something for once would be a great surprise.

    Beer from Persia would be a nice addition next year.


  178. Michelle July 19, 2015 at 1:05 am #

    …BECAUSE IT’S THE ONLY WAY TO CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY!! (holy moly, i’m turning 40!)

  179. Steve Eberhard July 19, 2015 at 8:21 am #

    Because as Otto Weischurchen, Blitz Weinhard’s brewmaster back in the 80’s told me when I asked him what his favorite beer was, he said “the one in front of me!”

    I’ve taken his advice to heart… Help me keep Otto’s memory alive!

  180. LoganE July 19, 2015 at 9:04 am #

    maybe going to this event will interest me in craft beer, as of now I am a miller light, colors light man but it may be time for a change? :)

  181. Breana July 19, 2015 at 10:34 am #

  182. Jamie July 19, 2015 at 11:15 am #

    The Oregon Brewers Festival is one of my favorite events in Portland. I attended the festival for the first time when I was visiting Portland in 2011. The event seemed to uniquely Portland. There are so many great beer options and friendly people just enjoying a love for good beer together. I just loved the atmosphere of the event. Now that I live in Portland, this is an event I marked on my calendar at the beginning of the year.

  183. Courtney July 19, 2015 at 11:16 am #

    Oregon beer? Yes, please.

  184. Ted July 19, 2015 at 11:17 am #

    Enjoying the many flavors, hops, smells and delights of craft beer instantly brings a smile to my face. I would love to attend this brew fest and share my memories on social media to show my respect and appreciaton! Keep Portland Beer’d!

  185. Shauna Pierson July 19, 2015 at 11:22 am #

    My absolute favorite Portland summer activity! Would love to go for free this year!

  186. Erika July 19, 2015 at 12:51 pm #

    A beer fest on a hot summer day. What could be better?

  187. josiah dittrich July 19, 2015 at 1:01 pm #

    I am an avid beer fan who adores this article and craft beer! PDX Rocks

  188. Laura July 19, 2015 at 1:59 pm #

    This event sounds amazeballs! We just moved to the area and this would be an effective way to try all the great beers out here!

  189. Carson July 19, 2015 at 5:51 pm #

    Because BEEEERRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And not just beer, delicious, awesome beer.

    And I’ve never been to this beerfest and have been wanting to check it out.

  190. Brian July 19, 2015 at 6:29 pm #

    I love beer! I also love winning things. … oh wait so there where I enter the magical winning saying of KITTENS!

  191. Amanda July 19, 2015 at 6:48 pm #

    Last year was a blast! Boyfriend just moved to Oregon and has never been to it!! Would love to take him :)

  192. heather July 19, 2015 at 7:09 pm #

    I would love to attend the brewers fest because I’m a server, and love to taste and learn about different styles of beer. Unfortunately I’m unemployed at the moment, so I definitely cannot spend money on non-necessities like this event.

  193. Breana July 19, 2015 at 7:22 pm #


  194. Jared W July 19, 2015 at 10:25 pm #

    Just like erryone else I am gonna enter cuz I like beer and this is fun. Maybe something about how i have been or haven’t etc. etc. Anyway send me and I will pour some out for the homies at pdxpipeline

  195. Ann July 19, 2015 at 10:53 pm #

    Beer is the only reason I’m writing this.

  196. Tamara July 20, 2015 at 12:23 am #

    What amazing luck I’d find a contest for 5 prizes.
    We are 5 lovely Canadian ladies coming down to stay for the OBF this weekend. We are happy to share an admission prize pack because we are polite, like that!

  197. Ron Meckna July 20, 2015 at 7:52 am #

    I come up to Portland every year from Omaha, hit the Brewfest and the Saturday Market. It appeases my inner beer snob, pick me!!

  198. Chelsie Kilian July 20, 2015 at 9:24 am #

    Would love to check out this Brewfest. My sister from Atlanta is visiting and it would be fun to check out something different this weekend. Also any event in Portland is usually a blast!

  199. John Gilles July 20, 2015 at 5:25 pm #

    I would love to attend the 2015 Oregon Brewers Festival because I’m visiting from the San Francisco Bay Area, where American craft brewing was born, and I’d like to see how the best brews of the Northwest stack up against our Bay Area classics like Anchor Steam.

  200. Lynn July 22, 2015 at 5:44 am #

    I’ve lived here for 20 years and I’ve never been! I’d love to go to this event!

  201. Randy Rebman July 22, 2015 at 1:31 pm #

    This sounds excellent. Printing out the beer list now!

  202. tyler July 23, 2015 at 9:32 am #

    Because, beer…

  203. Alison Toshima July 23, 2015 at 9:32 am #

    I’d love to go to this! My husband and i are brand new to town and want to start exploring all the cool stuff Portland has to offer!

    This bunny is ready to Hop Hop Hop!

  205. Steven July 23, 2015 at 3:22 pm #

    The Oregon Brewer’s fest is one of the few events I look forward to each year. My brothers and I, all avid local brewery fans, could always use a few more tokens.

  206. Missy July 23, 2015 at 3:58 pm #

    Yea it’s brew fest time!!

  207. Tabitha Sears July 24, 2015 at 8:14 am #

    I am a new lover of beer and I’ve heard d so many great things about our brew festival. I can’t wait to check it out!! Portland has the best beer around!!!

  208. Wayne Ferrell July 24, 2015 at 9:11 pm #

    Twenty or more years ago I attended the Oregon Brewers Festival and recognized Micheal Jackson
    ( yes, THE Michael Jackson) wandering around by himself tasting beers. He was very approachable and friendly. We had a nice conversation. I told him he’d tasted my homebrew in a Colorado competition where he served as a judge. I asked him if he ever imagined as a young man that he would grow up to be a famous globe traveling beer writer. His response, “No, I thought I’d be driving a lorry like me dad.”

  209. Shannon July 28, 2015 at 8:02 pm #

    Everybody loves beer (duh) so I won’t try and weasel into free tickets by professing how much I love it (although I truly do). I will simply say this: I probably am not the hugest beer fan on this page, but people who drink beer love to be around this little lady. I’d be a fantastic addition to the festival for drunk people to profess their deepest secrets to, trip over, smile at, or just plain talk to, and I’ll take it all in stride. Yay beer. Please pick me. Lord I’m so broke.
