OREGON BREWERS PARADE
Following the brunch is the Oregon Brewers Parade, which starts at 11:30am and is open to all ages. You do NOT need a ticket to walk in the parade.. More than 600 beer lovers will walk from The Redd, cross the Hawthorne Bridge over the Willamette River, and end up on the grounds of the Oregon Brewers Festival at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. We'll be led by the sounds of Brass Roots Movement; we will also join up with the Rogue Overflow Brunch from the Green Dragon.
If you wish to get into the Oregon Brewers Festival gates with those from the brunch to watch the opening ceremonies, you are required to have a wristband. We will have a security guard posted at the start of the parade from 11 to 11:30am. You will have to have your ID checked to get a wristband. Those with wristbands will enter the festival grounds at Pine Street Esplanade and Naito Parkway. Those without a wristband will have to get in line and have their ID checked at any of the other three OBF entrances. We will also be selling tokens and extra mugs at the doors to the brunch (cash only), so if you want to avoid the token/mug line at the fest, we've got you covered!
This year's Grand Marshal is John DeBenedetti of F.H. Steinbart. F.H. Steinbart Co. was founded in 1918 by Frank H. Steinbart. Throughout prohibition the business stayed open, selling wine making supplies for sacramental purposes, and near beer and soda supplies to local Portland breweries like Henry Weinhard. As the craft beer movement exploded in the 1980s and 90s, F.H. Steinbart Co. was at the forefront of the trend providing bulk hops and grains for emerging breweries like Bridgeport, Cartwright, McMenamins, and Widmer. The business is now owned by John DeBenedetti, son of Frank H. Steinbart's Joseph DeBenedetti. F.H. Steinbart Co. continues to provide a wide range of products and services to home and professional brewers, wine, and cider makers throughout Portland and the Pacific Northwest.
