    Dedicating a week to beer in Portland is a little like observing Children’s Day (which, by the way, is June 1). As parents undoubtedly remark, “Isn’t every day Children’s Day?” The same goes for Beervana, where suds are celebrated every waking and drinking hour. But with limited-edition brews, a lineup full of events and specials at bars and brewpubs citywide, Portland Beer Week is no gimmick. In fact, it overflows with so much hop fever, that the “week” spills over into 11 days of thirst-quenching fun.

    2014 events

    Running June 5-15, 2014, Beer Week features three big festivals — the Fruit Beer Festival (June 6-8), the Rye Beer Fest (June 13) and the Portland Beer and Cheese Fest (June 15) — but other events keep the taps flowing. Here’s a sample:

    These are just a few of the many events Portland Beer Week has brewing. In addition, there will be special beer-inflected products at local eateries, like an ice cream from Salt & Straw, a doughnut from Blue Star Donuts, a sandwich from Lardo, and, of course, a beer from Hopworks and Worthy Brewing Company (which is actually based in Bend, but hey, the more the merrier). In light of all those suds, it’s probably smart to spread the week over 11 days, after all.

    Portland Beer Week is a 10 day celebration of craft beer in the greatest beer city on earth. Dedicated to promoting Portland and our diverse craft beer culture, Portland Beer Week is a grassroots organization founded in 2011 as an annual city-wide event. We explore the boundaries and the things that make us great with fun, unique and educational events that take place all over the city with the best in restaurants, breweries, bars, retail stores, bottle shops and more. Attendees of Portland Beer Week can expect to both be entertained and enlightened with creative beer pairing events, beer dinners with some of the cities top chefs, seminars on subjects like barrel-aging and sour beers as well as festivals exploring styles such as the Rye Beer Fest and Portland Fruit Beer Festival. Each year we also select two breweries who collaborate to create the official annual Portland Beer Week beer available in limited quantities in bottles and kegs during beer week.
