Five major beer sponsors will each pour four beers: Baerlic Brewing Co., Base Camp Brewing Co., Hopworks Urban Brewery, Pyramid Brewing Co. and Widmer Brothers Brewing. A sixth beer sponsor, Falling Sky Brewing, will serve two beers. View the complete beer list at (also pasted in at the end of this release); and the exhibitor list at Food will be available for purchase from Urban German and Booda Bowls.

Attendees are encouraged to ride their bike to the event, with complimentary outside bike parking, or take public transportation; the TriMet Bus Line 35 stops one block away and the Yellow Max Line stops two and three blocks away. Parking is available on the street between Broadway and N. Graham St. The festival asks that attendees DO NOT don’t park in front of any neighboring businesses with no parking signs.

The ninth annual Handmade Bike and Beer Festival is a collaboration between the Oregon Bicycle Constructors Association, a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to promote Oregon based bicycle framebuilders; and the Oregon Brewers Guild, a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the state’s craft brewing industry and the common interests of its members.
