One of the nation’s longest-running and best-loved craft beer festivals, the Oregon Brewers Festival is a craft beer destination, and 80,000 annually make the pilgrimage to Beervana to drink up what the festival has to offer. The 29th annual event will take place July 27 through July 31 at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland. Gates open at 11:30am daily, and taps are open from Noon to 9pm Wed. through Sat., and Noon to 7pm Sunday.
The Oregon Brewers Festival was founded in 1988 as an opportunity to expose the public to microbrews at a time when the craft brewing industry was just getting off the ground. Today, that industry has flourished, especially in Oregon, which as of July 1, 2015 had 234 brewing facilities operated by 194 brewing companies in 72 cities across the state. The Portland Metropolitan area alone has more than 91 breweries. The economic impact of the festival on the local economy is annually more than $30 million.For more information visit www.
