The world’s only organic brewers festival, the North American Organic Brewers Festival will celebrate its 11th years with a new date: the event has moved away from its traditional June weekend to August 13 through 16 at Overlook Park in North Portland. Event hours are Noon to 9pm Thursday through Saturday and Noon to 5pm Sunday.

“Another beer promoter chose to move his Portland beer festival to our June date,” explained event founder Craig Nicholls. “Since we share the same pool of volunteers, and in many cases attendees, we opted for another date to benefit both events. The good news is August gives us a much better chance of drier summer weather!”

The NAOBF encourages brewers and beer lovers to “Drink Organic, Save the Planet, One Beer at a Time.” Designed to raise awareness about organic beer and sustainable living, the festival serves up 50 organic beers and ciders from more than 30 different breweries. Some of the breweries are certified organic, but most brew a one-off organic batch just for the event. Styles run the gamut from Ambers to Belgians to Wild Ales, with a bit of everything in-between. (A complete list of participating breweries in included at the bottom of this release.) The event also offers live local music, organic food and sustainability-oriented vendors and non-profits in a beautiful park setting.

This year’s event will also feature an exceedingly rare opportunity to sample draft beer from Pinkus, the world’s first certified organic brewery. Along with Pinkus Ur-Pils and Münster Alt on draft, the festival is introducing the Merchant du Vin Organic Bottle Garden, featuring 11 bottled beers and cider from Pinkus in Germany and Samuel Smith’s from Yorkshire, England.

“When Samuel Smith’s opened in 1758 and Pinkus in 1816, chemical fertilizers and pesticides didn’t exist – all beer was organic,” stated Tom Bowers, district manager at Merchant du Vin. “Viewing the beer world from this historic perspective, these brewers chose to become the trailblazers of organic brewing for the modern era. By including Samuel Smith’s and Pinkus in this year’s festival, NAOBF has expanded the opportunity for festival goers to not only experience amazing beers from the world’s original organic brewers, but to taste history.”

Admission into the NAOBF is free. The purchase of a $7 reusable, compostable cornstarch cup is required for tasting beer, as are tokens, which sell for $1 apiece. A full cup of beer costs four tokens and a taste costs one token; select beers and ciders may cost double tokens. Patrons receive an extra token with a validated Tri-Met ticket or a ticket from the Hopworks Bike Corral (one discount per person).

The NAOBF is a family friendly event, and minors are welcome with parents. A kids area offers art activities, face painting and a root beer garden with complimentary Crater Lake Root Beer for minors (and designated drivers).

The NAOBF is known as the most earth-friendly beer festival on the planet. Festival attendees sample beer from reusable and compostable cornstarch cups made from domestically grown corn by a zero-waste, solar-powered company. Electricity needs are met with biodiesel generators. Volunteers receive organic cotton t-shirts (returning volunteers can wear past T shirts and get extra tokens instead). Food vendors are required to employ sustainable practices, and onsite composting and recycling stations are provided for festival waste and are supervised by recycling czars.

The NAOBF encourages responsible drinking and urges patrons to take advantage of the MAX Light Rail; the Yellow Line Overlook Park Station is adjacent to the festival. Attendees can also take advantage of the Hopworks Bike Corral, where volunteers watch over bikes for free (donations are appreciated and support the BC to Baja Bicycle Odyssey).

Why brew organic? Today’s agriculture relies heavily on chemicals and often causes erosion and depletion of soil nutrients through loss of biomass. Organic farming is a growing industry that reduces erosion, pollution, and water shortages by using natural methods to fertilize crops and to fight pests and disease. A well-established organic farm can often produce higher yields than a conventional farm. Organic farming is typically more labor intensive and provides more agricultural jobs per acre than conventional farming. Workers on organic farms are also safe from the health hazards of working with pesticides and herbicides. Using organic ingredients to make beer produces a beer with the highest possible purity and also supports the small but growing industry of organic farming.

  5. Nancy C August 10, 2015 at 7:09 pm #

    I could make this the ultimate road trip. I want to go to the Goldendale Observatory to see the Perseid Meteor Shower… right on the way to the Organic Brewers Fest. I appreciate their commitment to quality and sustainability. It goes well with the certified Dark Sky Park. Please consider me. I promise to share pictures.

  15. Angelo August 11, 2015 at 9:53 am #

    I would really love to attend this festival this year but I just don’t have the funds for it. I’m out of work and times of been tough but I really really really love and support organic craft beer. Go Craig! Hope the change of date works out better for you! Sounds like August is the perfect time for the NAOBF to go down!

    I work for Tilth Producers of Washington – a non-profit that educates and advocates for organic and sustainable farmers (the same farmers who produce the great hops that these brewers rely on!). Washington state is the leading producer of organic hops in the country. I want to come represent my organization and meet these awesome folks brewing the beer. Happy summer! :)

  21. Tony August 11, 2015 at 10:59 am #

I can’t wait to attend this festival and put my two passions together- beer and supporting organic and sustainable companies!

  49. Grant Huber August 11, 2015 at 1:06 pm #

    I’m a connoisseur of beer. Whenever I buy beer I usually try something I have never had. Testing the full palate and make mental notes of what I enjoy or not. The North American Brewers Festival is the perfect atmosphere to taste new and unique beer, while adding to my favorites list.

  50. Ian August 11, 2015 at 1:06 pm #

    I’m coming all the way from Saigon Vietnam for the love of beer!!

  51. Val Burns August 11, 2015 at 1:08 pm #

    This is my favorite beer festival in Portland. To me, organic beers taste the best and HUB has been one of my favorite breweries. I have been looking forward to this festival for a few months. I love the setting in Overlook park, there is still grass there as opposed to the waterfront.

  52. bri August 11, 2015 at 1:08 pm #

    My favorite brewer’s festival in pdx!

  53. Sara Ward August 11, 2015 at 1:09 pm #

    I would like to attend the Organic Brewers Festival because, 1. I love beer and trying new breweries and styles; and 2. I think that it’s great that breweries are beginning to go Organic and use local hops and such.

    Thanks!

  54. Jannae August 11, 2015 at 1:11 pm #

    Would love to attend a new beer festival in town and this looks like a great time and family friendly!! Sounds like the perfect day! *fingers crossed*

  55. Paige Melzer August 11, 2015 at 1:11 pm #

  59. Emily August 11, 2015 at 1:29 pm #

    This is a family tradition! Every year since I have turned 21 my sister, dad and I have went together on Friday with family friends. This year has been a rough one for our family and it would mean so much to get such a wonderful surprise Friday! We look forward to this fest every year! Thanks!

    • Liz August 11, 2015 at 7:20 pm #

      Love you Sis, thanks for being so amazing!!! I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

  60. J.C. August 11, 2015 at 1:30 pm #

    I’d love to go because the park is sublime with organic beer!

  61. Suzanne S. August 11, 2015 at 1:33 pm #

    This is the best brewfest in Portland. What’s better than hanging out with friends on the grass, listening to music and drinking beer? The best part is you can bring your family if you want or need to, and there’s no entry fee! Everything about this brewfest screams Portland!

  62. Chelsea Ingle August 11, 2015 at 1:35 pm #

    I have volunteered for the last 3 years and am now a single mom. I’ve earned it!

  63. Georgia August 11, 2015 at 1:37 pm #

    This would be a good way to get my boyfriend to hang out with me instead of watching his friends’ bands and also I can walk there! which is perfect because my bike just got stolen from my friend’s backyard.

  64. Tracy August 11, 2015 at 1:39 pm #

    Woot, free organic beer!

  65. Emily August 11, 2015 at 1:39 pm #

  72. Harrison August 11, 2015 at 2:11 pm #

    Just drank for the first time in 17 years last week. Eager to do it again. What better than with organic beers?!

  73. Brook August 11, 2015 at 2:15 pm #

    Because my work has spent this summer sending me out of town and thus I’ve missed EVERY OTHER fest since May.

  74. Scott August 11, 2015 at 2:16 pm #

  87. Mario August 11, 2015 at 4:14 pm #

    I like organic things. I love beer. Put them together, add music and fantastic Overlook Park and sprinkle in some perfect Portland summer weather. Recipe for glorious times!

  88. Leslie August 11, 2015 at 4:23 pm #

    Turned 21 at the beginning of summer and have yet to go to a brew festival or find a beer I truly like.

  97. Chris August 11, 2015 at 4:37 pm #

    great fest and great location. My favorite fest due to quality of selection and lack of brewerfest level lines.

  98. Sarah August 11, 2015 at 4:43 pm #

    I’m a surgery resident who moved here over a year ago but have never been able to experience a Portland beer festival because of how much I work, but I’ve actually gotten some time off and would love to go to my first festival!

  102. Christy August 11, 2015 at 4:50 pm #

    Make our friendversary complete!! Logan, Marisa, and I all met randomly at NAOBF 4 years ago. We were all new transplants (NY, MA, and CO) and struck up conversation about hiking and beer and the glories of Oregon. We have been close friends ever since, despite the fact that Logan has moved to Seattle and Marisa to San Francisco. Fortunately, both will be in town this weekend, specifically for NAOBF because we never miss it.

  103. Cole Schoonmaker August 11, 2015 at 4:51 pm #

    I want to try as many beers as possible, and winning this contest would go a long way towards that.

  104. Jennifer Webb August 11, 2015 at 4:58 pm #

  107. Rose August 11, 2015 at 5:20 pm #

    We couldn’t afford it otherwise! My husband works so hard and would love to do this. Id love to surprise him with a way to go!! He deserves it!

    This is my favorite beer fest! I’ll be taking the Max all the way in from out west. It would be such a treat to have tokens and a mug waiting for me after my long journey.
    Cheers!!!

    Have plans to be there- would love for it to be fully subsidized

  110. Noah C August 11, 2015 at 5:53 pm #

    just moved to Portland, looking forward to immersing myself in local beers

  111. Anya August 11, 2015 at 6:10 pm #

    One of the best beer events since it doesn’t get claustrophobicly crowded. Who wouldn’t want to go?

  116. Chris N August 11, 2015 at 7:50 pm #

    Pick me because organic beers are one area of my beer education that is seriously lacking and I would like to correct that!

  117. Lauren August 11, 2015 at 9:59 pm #

    We’d love tickets to this fest. The only time I’ve missed it in recent years has been 2012 when I was getting married next door at Overlook House!

  118. Pamela starks August 11, 2015 at 10:58 pm #

  120. Stephanie August 12, 2015 at 6:05 am #

    I’d love to attend this beerfest, it’s one of the few I haven’t had an opportunity to check out! A ticket package would be the perfect birthday surprise this weekend! Pick me ;-)

  121. Jamie August 12, 2015 at 7:40 am #

    We have an amazing time every year at this festival. Would love to go again.

  122. Soco August 12, 2015 at 9:07 am #

    If it’s not too late please choose me!! I’d like to attend because the thought of going back to school leads me to want some good beer!! Cheers!

  127. Colin August 12, 2015 at 9:52 am #

    A few years back at the NAOBF a huge branch fell off the big tree while we were sitting under it drinking. Overlook Park owes me a non-death defying experience!

  128. Leah August 12, 2015 at 11:25 am #

    This is the only brewers fest in PDX I haven’t attended-I would love to make it this year.

  129. Reed August 12, 2015 at 12:50 pm #

    aaaaaaaaaaaaand commented just in time

    right?!

  130. RPB August 12, 2015 at 5:34 pm #

    The line-up of breweries looks amazing! I’d like to surprise my husband and father-in-law (who is visiting from India) with the best that Portland has to offer!

  131. Charlene August 12, 2015 at 7:08 pm #

    This is truly my first time at this. Never have been to any kind of brew fest, but my husband loves beer, and would be a fun date night. Yes I still ask my husband out on dates.

  132. Kileah August 12, 2015 at 7:16 pm #

    I’d love to attend this with my family! Husband and I enjoy brewing cider together every year like all proper hobbits do so getting to celebrate local brewing with others is always a plus!

  133. alicia August 12, 2015 at 9:47 pm #

    This would be a fun way to celebrate our anniversary!

  134. Lyle August 13, 2015 at 3:54 pm #

    My Aunt with leukemia can’t eat foods treated with pesticides. She is visiting Portland for the first time in my 5 years here and would love to taste some beers that our town is famous for.

  135. MIchelle August 13, 2015 at 4:58 pm #

    It seems only fair that I should win tickets to my favorite brew fest of the season. Doesn’t it?

  136. Ari Eicher August 13, 2015 at 5:12 pm #

    NAOBF is my favorite beer fest of the year! Pick me!

  137. Christine August 13, 2015 at 5:43 pm #

    Give me beer, or give me beer!!! Please…

  138. Makenzie August 14, 2015 at 4:19 am #

    Please pick my husband and I! We are on our first vacation alone, without family, and we chose Portland! Within two years we met online, got married and had a baby! Our nine month-old is staying with my parents for the week. We could really use a drink!

  139. Angela August 14, 2015 at 8:36 am #

    Sounds like my husband’s kind of event.

  140. Benita August 14, 2015 at 9:18 am #

    Lived here a year and I seem to always miss the beer festivals. I love Oregon beer, it’s amazing. To top it off, I have a cousin in town and we have both never been to a beer festival. Ohhhh please pick me :) I’d be forever grateful.

  141. Julie August 14, 2015 at 11:10 am #

    Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend was wrong. It’s beer.

  142. Charles C August 14, 2015 at 9:31 pm #

    I’m working on my best pallets! Food, wine, and Beer! Organic would bring a whole new level of earth flavors into the simple equation of observation. Taste the rain… Beerbow :-?
