We’ve got craft beer OGs
Maybe you’ve heard of Widmer and BridgePort , which in the past 30 years have grown into national favorites. Bend’s Deschutes is also brewing here, while Rogue has a gigantic pub, a beer hall, and a bottle shop hidden among the warehouses of SE Portland.
Our brewers work together
Collaborations are a big thing in Portland, and it’s not uncommon to see brewers putting their brains together to make one-off batches. It’s so rampant that Base Camp even has a Collabofest where 10 different breweries come together and offer a wide array of styles.
We have festivals basically every other weekend
The Oregon Brewers Fest might be the big-dog of the beer-fest scene, but it’s hardly the only one out there. Cheers to Belgian Beers, The Portland Fruit Beer Fest, the Holiday Ale Fest, the Fresh Hops Fest, Zwickelmania, the Portland International Beerfest, and Oktoberfest are just a few of the opportunities to brave long lines for small tastes of pretty much everything Oregon has to offer.
