The 15 Best Beer Events in Portland This Spring

Published On 03/23/2015 Published On 03/23/2015

Maybe you didn't believe us when we gave you 16 reasons why Portland is America's best beer city (what, are you from Seattle?), or maybe you thought we were exaggerating when we said PDX has a beer festival every weekend. Well, now that it's spring we've got plenty of proof for the latter, so much so that we had to pick Stumptown's very best beer events this season and put 'em together in one handy calendar. You're welcome...
