Organic Brewers Festival Kicks Off Summer Beervana Fun

Let the summer beer festivals in Portland begin! The first major one out of the gate this weekend is the North American Organic Brewers Festival, slated for a 3pm kickoff this afternoon. It will run until 9pm tonight, followed by 12 to 9 on Saturday and 12 to 5 on Sunday. The location it is being held is Overlook Park.

Entry to the festival will be free, but you'll have to pay for those beer tastings buddy! "$5 for a reusable, yet compostable, cornstarch tasting glass and samples are $1 a ticket. A full glass is 4 tickets. Strong beers (over 8% alcohol by volume) and certain imported beers will cost more."

There looks to be a lot of good beers available for tasting. You'll also find "sustainability oriented vendors, live music, and local and organic food. " We are one of the sponsors as well, so we hope to see you there!
