The Oregon Brewers Festival in Southwest Portland is the most popular event in America's best city for beer drinkers. Join the 33rd annual Oregon Brewers Festival, taking place at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland, Oregon on Wednesday, July 22 through Saturday, July 25, 2020.
Founded in 1988, the Oregon Brewers Festival is one of the nation’s longest-running and best loved craft beer festivals, and is considered a craft beer destination. On a sun soaked July afternoon, there’s no better place to sip independent craft beers, cider & wine with friends along the banks of the Willamette River, with the Portland skyline as a backdrop to the west and Mt. Hood towering in the east. Around 50,000 beer lovers annually make the pilgrimage to Beervana to drink up what the festival has to offer!
Whether you prefer Belgians or Blondes, Hazys or Hefes, Pales or Pilsners, Saisons or Sours––come to the Oregon Brewers Festival and discover all there is to love about Oregon beer and cider!
The Oregon Brewers Festival got its start in July 1988 as the brainchild of Art Larrance, founder of Portland Brewing Co. He had been to Oktoberfest in Munich and wanted to create a similar atmosphere while exposing locals to the variety of good microbrews. Back then, there were only four microbreweries in operation in Portland (BridgePort, McMenamins, Portland and Widmer), and six across the state (Full Sail and Deschutes).
Art approached the Portland brewers to determine their interest in participating in a festival. McMenamins agreed to participate, but declined being an organizer. The remaining three – Widmer, BridgePort and Portland Brewing – established the Portland Brewers Festival Association of Oregon and set off to put on the first festival.
The founders didn’t know it at the time, but they had a great concept on their hands. Today, the Oregon Brewers Festival is one of the nation’s longest running and best loved craft beer festivals; it’s also one the largest of its kind. Located on the west bank of the Willamette River, with majestic Mt. Hood as a backdrop, it is the ideal venue for beer lovers to congregate.
With a laid-back attitude and scores of beers, the festival embodies the spirit of the city of Portland, and is the crowning jewel of Oregon Craft Beer Month.
Around 50,000 visitors annually travel from all parts of the world to drink up what the festival has to offer, and they spend money while they’re here; the Oregon Brewers Festival infuses more than $20 million each year to the local economy.
