Offerings

The Oregon Brewers Festival provides an opportunity to sample dozens of craft beer styles from 93 Oregon craft brewers, plus eight Oregon cider makers. The event also offers a Meet the Brewer area, a Brewer Dunk Tank, beer-related vendors, homebrewing demonstrations, games, and an assortment of food vendors. The Crater Lake Soda Garden presents complimentary handcrafted soda for minors and designated drivers.

The Oregon Brewers Festival encourages responsible drinking and urges patrons to take Tri-Met; the MAX Light Rail has a station one block from the main festival entrance. Attendees who ride bikes can park them for free in the Hopworks Urban Brewery secure bike corral.

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, with more than 6,000 craft breweries in America. The economic impact of the Oregon Brewers Festival on the local economy is annually more than $23 million.
