Noon to 9 p.m. Thurs, Fri & Sat, and Noon to 5 p.m. Sun
Overlook Park in Portland, Oregon
Two of Portland's beloved industries - organic beer and sustainability - come together in an annual celebration designed to raise awareness about organic beer and sustainable living. We serve up organic beers and ciders from around the world, accompanied by live music, organic food, sustainability-oriented vendors, non-profits and a children's area - all in a beautiful tree lined setting that overlooks downtown Portland.
Come visit the North American Organic Brewers Festival and see why we're Portland's best kept secret of beer fests!
Admission into the event is free. The purchase of a $6 reusable, compostable cornstarch glass is required for tasting beer, as are tokens, which sell for $1 apiece. A full glass of beer costs four tokens and a four-ounce taste costs one token (select beers cost double tokens). Patrons receive a $1 discount toward the tasting glass with one of the following: a validated Tri-Met ticket, a ticket from the on-site fenced bike corral, or three cans of food for the Oregon Food Bank.
Children are allowed all hours when accompanied by a parent.
Animals are not allowed on the festival site with the exception of ADA animals.
Ride the Tri-Met! or Ride your Bike!
Pedal and Park
Ride your bike and park it in the Hopworks Bike Corral, where volunteers from Rotary Cycling 2 Serve will watch over your wheels while you savor some of the country's best organic brews. Bicycle parking is free, but donations are greatly appreciated. Donations will benefit Rotary International's "End Polio Now" efforts to eradicate polio worldwide.
The Interstate Tri-Met/Yellow Line "Overlook Park" Station is directly across from Overlook Park and is the second stop from the Rose Quarter transit mall, heading north. Use the Tri-Met website for directions from your door to Overlook Park (1301 N. Fremont Street, Portland, Oregon 97227).
There is NO PARKING provided for this event. DO NOT park in Kaiser Permanente parking lots or parking garages; you will be ticketed. Please be considerate of the neighborhood when parking for the event - these people live here and are generous enough to allow us to host this event every year.
