From Our Sponsors
21+ to drink, all-ages welcome to attend
More info: merctickets.com
Inspired by the Hood Valley’s abundance of cherry orchards, Kriekfest is the largest celebration devoted exclusively to barrel-aged cherry beverages. Kriekfest returns for its fourth annual inception, harvesting the biggest basket of cherry beers––and cider, mead, and sparkling cherry wine––yet, as well as relocating to a new venue. This year’s event will take place Saturday, June 29 from 11:30am to 7pm at Von Ebert Brewing Glendoveer, located at 14021 NE Glisan St.
New to the festival this year is a five-course kriek pairing dinner, which will be held at Von Ebert Glendoveer the evening prior on Friday, June 28. Dinner tickets are extremely limited and cost $125, which includes the meal and beverages, a commemorative stemmed glass, gratuity, and Kriekfest VIP admission the next day.
Kriekfest 2019 festival and dinner tickets are available now at merctickets.com/go/
Kriek, Flemish for sour cherry, is a four-centuries-old style of spontaneously-fermented, lambic ales aged on cherries (pits and all). This year’s Kriekfest lineup features more than 30 participating providers,
Cherry-growing regions are natural for such beers, so it’s no surprise Oregon’s Hood and Willamette Valley’s Belgian-inspired breweries make excellent krieks. This year’s lineup features sour cherry beers from both these regions, as well as five additional countries, and five more states. Many of the breweries are making their Oregon debut, including Michigan’s Speciation Artisan Ales and B. Nektar Meads, Wisconsin’s O’So Brewing, New Zealand’s 8 Wired, Australia’s Two Metre Tall, and Ontario’s Bellwoods.
The celebration of cherry-laced libations is family-friendly and features a cherry marketplace and other delicious food. For more information visit Kriekfest.com and follow updates on social media at @Kriekfest.
