With 75 (and counting!) breweries in town, Portland’s collective beer knowledge runs deliciously deep. So what happens when a cadre of the town’s esteemed brew masters joined forces to create a special run of collaborative ales? You guessed it: one massive party.
Base Camp Brewing hosts an annual Collabofest every winter. The festival hosted its third iteration March 10, 2018. A celebration of Portland’s craft beer scene, Collabofest is an opportunity to taste never-before-sampled recipes from partnerships between more than a dozen innovative Portland breweries. The epic results are available for limited runs at participating breweries’ taprooms. As a feel-good bonus, some proceeds of the event go toward supporting organizations like The Nature Conservancy, an organization dedicated to land and water conservation.
Tickets to Collabofest can be purchased in person at Base Camp’s Southeast Portland brewery, or on their website.
