More than 70,000 beer lovers are expected to travel from around the world to attend the 31st annual Oregon Brewers Festival (OBF) this summer. Considered one of the nation’s longest-running and best-loved craft beer events, the outdoor festival will take place July 26 through July 29 at Tom McCall Waterfront Park on the west bank of the Willamette River. Gates open at 11:30am daily, and taps are open from Noon to 9pm Thursday through Saturday, and Noon to 7pm Sunday.

The OBF will serve 80 craft beers from small, traditional, and independent craft breweries located in 10 different states, as well as The Netherlands, and Baja, California. The northwestern Mexican state of Baja has defined itself as the country’s largest contingent for “cerveza artesanal,” and the festival is excited to present five breweries from that region. Look for more than two dozen different beer styles ranging from Berliner Weisse to Belgians, IPAs to IPLs, pales to Pilsners, and sours to stouts. For the first time ever, the OBF will also offer two ciders – one from Cider Riot! and the other from Reverend Nat’s – as well as two red wines and two white wines, one of each from Eola Hills and Serra Vineyards. The vibrant festival will also feature live music all four days with no cover charge, six food booths, a number of beer related vendors, souvenir sales, and homebrew demonstrations.

The OBF is not a ticketed event; it is free to enter the festival grounds. In order to taste beer, the purchase of a souvenir tasting mug from the current year is required, which costs $7. Beer is purchased with wooden tokens, which cost $1 apiece. Patrons pay four tokens for a full mug of beer, or one token for a taste. The purchase of mugs and tokens is made on-site. The event is cash-only, with eight ATMs located on-premise.

The festival encourages responsible drinking and urges patrons to take Tri-Met; the MAX Light Rail has a station one block from the main festival entrance. Alternately, attendees who ride their bikes can park them for free in the Hopworks Urban Brewery secure bike corral. For those who bring a designated driver, the Crater Lake Soda Garden provides complimentary handcrafted soda (no mug purchase required). Minors, who are allowed into the event all hours when accompanied by a parent, also receive free Crater Lake Soda.

    I need some liquid luck. Just received news after I thought my wall would lead me to the Hogwarts Express. (Joking) Figured it was only dislocated foot, only to receive results of xrays and turns out I fractured it in two places. So my running days are cut short for rest of the year. Going to miss Two marathons so really don’t want to miss the OBF. Thank you for this wonderful chance to win.

    My wife and I just went through hell with our pregnancy! Emergency surgery to save the pregnancy, 8 weeks of 2 times a day visits to the hospital leading up to the birth, then 30 days of living at the NICU with our babies on machines! We now have two gorgeous twin girls and they are amazing, but we are so busy we don’t have time for anything anymore!

    OBF is where we fell in love and became a couple and we have gone every year and we really want to take the girls this year for their first. If we can win it will be the real motivator to make this work and the cherry on top of a special day that we really need to reward ourselves and celebrate our gorgeous family!

    thanks so much!

  93. Brian Jim July 19, 2018 at 4:23 pm #
