Green Dragon Mini Beer Fest Rescheduled

Due to scheduling conflicts, the dates for the Inaugural Mini Beer Festival have changed from August 29th & 30th to September 19th & 20th.

On Saturday September 19th from 11:00am to 9:00pm and Sunday September 20th from 11:00am to 7:00pm, the city of Portland will close down SE 9th Street between SE Belmont and SE Yamhill for the 1st Annual Mini Beer Fest. The event will feature 30+ independent Oregon-based breweries that brew no-more-than 1,000 barrels per year, providing festival goers with exciting, hardto-find beers.

Each brewer will bring 2 different styles of beer with them to pour during the Mini Beer Fest. Some of the breweries include:

* Alameda Brewing Co. * Calapooia Brewing Co. * Klamath Basin Brewing
* Fort George Brewery * Block 15 Brewery * Fearless Brewing
* Hair of the Dog Brewing * Vertigo Brewing * Three Creeks Brewing
* Fanno Creek Brewing * Upright Brewing * 10 Barrel Brewing
* Old Market Pub * Seven Brides Brewing * Wet Dog Cafe
* Eugene City Brewery

Attendees will be able to take their favorite beers home with them in bottles, growlers and kegs to go. If the beer is not enough to keep cool, tours of the Green Dragon’s 1,040 square foot, glow-in-the-dark cooler will be held hourly. Other activities include:

12:00 to 5:00 - Dog Wash
12:00 to 4:00 - Washers Tournament
11:00 to 9:00 - Free Pinball
11:00 to 9:00 - Free Shuffleboard

Mini Beer Fest is 100% dog-friendly and owners are encouraged to bring their companions
with them. A portion of the proceeds from the Mini Beer Festival will benefit the Portlandbased
Pixie Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing animal adoption in a
nurturing environment and affording access to spay and neuter services for everyone.

With a $10.00 paid admission, each attendee will receive 5 taster tickets. Additional tickets will be sold for $1.00 each.
