Oregon Brewers Festival



News & Updates

Beers Tapped Out on Sunday

Due to the weather forecast this weekend, a dozen beers are tapped out on Sunday at start, we apologize for any inconvenience.

Free Rogue Shuttle Bus

Rogue Ales & Spirits offers a free shuttle bus that runs during festival hours on a continuous loop from OBF to: Rogue Distillery & Public House Portland on Flanders; Rogue Hall near PSU; Horse Brass Pub; PDX Green Dragon; and back to the Festival. One loop takes about an hour, pickup is across Naito from the Pine St entrance.


Remember, smoking of any kind is no longer allowed in Portland Parks. And yes, marijuana may now be legal in Oregon, but it's not allowed to be consumed in a public place. So keep it at home!

No More Glass Tasting Glass

Although the festival has utilized a glass tasting vessel the past two years, the Portland Police Bureau has required the festival to return to plastic for safety reasons; attendees should be satisfied with this yearís alternative, which is a high-quality, 14-ounce polycarbonate glass made in Finland. You must purchase the glass in order to consume beer; prices remain the same as last year, and the glass costs $7 (one time purchase for the entire event). Beer is purchased with wooden tokens, which cost $1 apiece. Patrons pay four tokens for a full glass of beer, or one token for a taste. The purchase of glasses and tokens is made on-site (although there are a handful of local businesses that sell them up to two weeks prior to the event).

OBF features Kiwi contingent from New Zealand

Continuing its foray into featuring international craft brewers, the Oregon Brewers Festival has invited five brewers from New Zealand to come to the event along with their beer. The Kiwi contingent includes Tuatara, Yeastie Boys, Garage Project, Panhead and ParrotDog. Select styles from these breweries will be featured in the festivalís International Tent along with daily meet-the-brewer sessions. The International Tent encourages a long-term cultural exchange with brewers around the world as part of a collective celebration of great craft beer. These five brewers are in addition to the 90 breweries that will be sending beer for the main tents.
